  1. Cool 😎 I'm booked in to get mine done soon. Basically I've always been between Good Life or Good Luck. I finaly decided on Good Life but I've been thinking I would like to get luck below the good in single but not sure what would go on the other hand. At the moment I'm thinking symbols but trying to think of a word that would fit. If that makes any sense 🤯 Example: GOOD LIFE luck ???? Or GOOD LUCK life ????
  2. It's been a good while since I posted on here so here are a few bits I've had over the last year or two, there are more but these are the only ones that I have pics to hand. A couple from Steve Byrne My leg as been in progress for about two years now, one session to go, by Damien Rodriguez Oliver Macintosh
  3. Nice one where was it? I scrolled through pages, and the search function brought up nothing, you would think when searching for Knuckle Tattoos the first thing it would bring up was a thread called Knuckle Tattoos 😂
  4. Hi all there used to be a thread on here with ideas of four letter word combos for knuckle tattoos "Love Hate" etc but I can't find it, can anyone link me to it or start again maybe 😄
  5. @mmikaoj Saw that on instagrm earlier awesome tattoo I'd love to get some thing off Iain
  6. I'm not big into portrait tattoos but I plan on getting a portrait of Bill Murray LEGEND think i'm going with stripes 8)
  7. I last got tattood in September and have had nothing booked since, I feel a bit lost! I think this is the first time in 3 or so years where I haven't been looking forward to the next sesion, or booking something new, I need some isperation! anyone now of any US guests coming to the UK anytime soon?

  9. Fucking awesome, I love this tattoo I've been drooling over it on Instagram etc :cool:
  10. Thanks @Joe Stratford I'll have a good look through I'm getting tattooed by Steve Byrne, first time I've been tattooed by him and first tattoo in a few months, I can't wait :D
  11. I'm getting my chest eagle done next week, does anyone have any links to vintage Flash eagle reference
  12. One was done around March the other is a back piece that was finished in January but the blue was put in before that. I doubt I'll see either tattooer for at least a couple of months, one travels the world and is pretty hard to get hold of and the other is not really local to me. I'm not overly concerned it's not all the blue in the tattoos just in certain areas! Lower thigh, lower back waist area and shoulder area. My guess would be it's an allergic reaction on sensitive areas triggered by the sun! It's just strange I've never had issues on my arms and often get caught out without lotion. I'll try some antihistamines and see if that works.
  13. I've just come back off holiday, and have a weird issue! I used SPF 30 all holiday but on a couple of areas where it may of rubbed off, waist band, just bellow neck line and just above knee, some of my tattoos have reacted, they are all fully healed but the blue in the tattoos has gone lumpy and raised up! its quite itchy too! my arms often get caught in the sun without sunscreen and this as never happened. as this happened to anyone else? is there anything I can do? as I said it is only on the blue worst thing I'm going back on holiday on friday! PS I'm not 100% its down to the sun could be a reaction to lotion? I'm not sure :confused:
  14. I like Claudia's work but I am not familiar with the other 2. Is it primarily a Female artist you looking for, If so have you considered Valerie Vargas at frith street? she is an awesome tattooer and a great person to boot!
