  1. Got a wonderful lady head from @Valerie Vargas best Mothers day present ever and had a takeaway in the evening , anyway just to say a huge Thank you to all at Frith Street Tattoo
  2. Anyone off to Frith Street for Mothers Day?I have an appointment with @Valerie Vargas and am beside myself with excitement
  3. Just to say Happy Halloween to everyone , donning my costume later including the temporary skull and crossbones hand tattoo im to nervous to get for real , have a great evening everyone.
  4. [MENTION=855]jade1955[/MENTION] those cupcakes looked amazing your wife must be a great cook.
  5. Ive used paypal for deposits , Stewart and Duncan x are great artists
  6. Thats very true its incredible when friends say that they dont need to go to a "fancy" shop like my partner and I have when we live in London and there is so much talent in every style, there is no need to get a bad tattoo.
  7. My partner and I have tried recommending shops and artists to people according to what they say they want, but weve given up as they never get the tattoos or say theyll just go to the local shop.
  8. I ve got two done at a local Friday 13th day unfortunately, a cotton reel and thread on my ankle with an embroidered 13 and scissors behind my ear with 13 between them .That one I regret , funnily enough I live at n13
  9. Jade1955 thats fantastic I wanted a mermaid on my other arm but I dont think I could compete with thAt
  10. @jade1955 im sure Swindon has some great artists (joke) just like my bit of East London specialises in scratchers who dont ask for i.d and tattoo 17 year olds wrists.
  11. @jade1955 cant wait to see what you and your wife get.Well, well jealous cant wait to get back up there for some work on my arm , hopefully one day I will be lucky enough to get a Valerie tattoo as well.
  12. London as a whole has many great sites and museums many of which are free, however Walthamstow where I live is mainly notable for riot damage and a street market.
  13. @jade1955 I hope your poor legs feeling better
  14. jade I think they must be, I originally went for a cover up and I seem to be heading for a full sleeve!Also your wifes sleeve is really beautiful and you got some lovely work as well.
  15. Hi got the most amazing pirate girl on Friday by @Stewart Robson im rubbish at pictures but shes on his blog. Frith street is an amazing shop it has great artists and a wonderful atmosphere, very friendly as well.
  16. my other half and I ended up talking about tattoos in the supermarket with a lovely builder who,d got his arms and legs done at into you it was a really nice chat
  17. Fantastic thread just on quick observation why do certain types of tattoo magazines insist on only putting young girls wearing very little on the cover, often the cover models seem to have relatively few tattoos as well.Im sure there are lots of men with fantastic work as well as older women it would be nice to see some people like this on magazine covers.
  18. These are all lovely positive posts as I have mentioned before my partner and I liking the world of tattooing has shown my eldest daughter that people come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and that there are many people out there doing great work and a tattoo shouldnt be a rushed decision.
  19. I wish my flat smelt of rich mahogany , normally it smells of bleach and cats.
  20. Those are all really interesting posts. S33ktruth its true what you say my 12 year old daughter just collected 11 merit certificates at the end of term.
  21. Hello im Mel and im quite new here , I have a great intrest in tattoos particuarly traditional ones and I am also a parent of three children. I was wondering how any other parents with tattoos feel , has anyone ever felt people judge them because of their artwork or do people just show a friendly intrest? For my own part I hope having tattooed parents will make my children open to all sorts of differences in people . Sorry for long post I love this forum because no one in my circle shares my intrest.
  22. Ms Rad I completely agree with you I love the heavily tattooed look on men and women and would love to reach that point myself one day, however at the mo due to funds, children etc im not at the point where hand tattoos would be appropriate for me , good luck with new job by the way.
  23. I read the link to the Daily Mail in the comments section people were sadly saying very unkind things such as she must be a terrible mother. I can say honestly that my partner and I are both tattooed and I know other members of this fprum are parents and im sure we all do a great job as Jacqui does, it is such a shame people judge in this way.
