  1. Finished today the skull and some minor details. I love it, it really makes the Tofi eye part that was bland and I didnt like pop more now :)

    He also gave me an original painting of his which is sick (pic below)

    The Japanese artist at the shop was doing a sleeve, super clean work and he ended giving me an original of one of his paintings(pic below), so had a great day :)

    Sorry for the glare from my phone.

    Video of completed leg by Mrdist!





    The original picture Henry gave me :)


    The original picture Enzo gave me :)


  2. Ok you all remember the shit piece and squiggly lines David Corden did on me and I have lasered it off, below 2 pictures of how it looked lol



    Went and saw Victor while I was driving about Europe couple weeks back and had some touch ups all over really but he also did a little filler where the shit squiggly lines were ready for connection to my knee. Still healing so its still very dark :)




    And a couple of pictures of Victor admiring my beautiful arse while I was there ;)



  3. A couple of pics taken professionally at the London convention, my first professional pics taken, some girl just grabbed me and took me into a room and said strip off lol

    Still got two days with Victor as he is not totally happy with my back piece, not sure what he wants to do.

    Its for a magazine, cant remember if its skin deep or one of them.

    Anyhow here are some stunning shots of my superb body!



  4. So I went for my appointment with Tomas Tomas today.

    Trying some different styles :)

    Had me toes done lol, wasnt a lot we could do really with just toes but I think once it settles down and its the same colour as the snake, should fit in great.

    He showed me a vid and said this pattern is from some tribe from the Amazon. Now all I need is some animal skin leather pants ;p

    Hes a fucking awesome crack :)


  5. ^ that is absolutely stunning. I feel a bit creepy staring at your bum but there's so much to see and it's all so amazing.

    And the modesty panel made me giggle. :D

    Lol thanks a lot :)

    do your balls hang low, do they wobble to and frow, can you tie them in a knot?, can you tie them in a bow?,can you throw them over your shoulder like a regimental soldier, do your balls hang lowwwwwwwwwww @peterpoose

    Lol yep proper grandad bollocks :)

  6. My new pieces by Victor over last 2 days, he is bored shitless with faces, eyes etc so we tried some dotwrok and a little towards bio.

    He made the girl/demon face light to try and contrast Robert Hernandez's far too dark skull.

    He worked super fast, first day 5 hours, today 6 hours. :)

    We also had a funny convo about my back piece. He said when I had the Jesus done he had no clue I wanted my whole back done, nor did I.

    He said he would have done things a lot differntly had he known that, so we have now booked 2 more sessions as he wants to go rght over my back and change as much stuff as is possible to flow better and improve it, to me its fine lol

    Pics taken on my phone with my arse red raw lol

    Anyhow sorry for the arse shot again and I also covered the hanging penis nudity part :P






  7. Thanks guys :)

    Yes I will be regualry checking and updating the database to make sure its accurate but atm just too busy with other stuff to do with the app but will slowly get there. Helps when people also tell me, so thanks for the heads up, will change it now I know.:)


  8. Chaps & Chapesses

    The app (The Brag Art List) is now live and started to mass market it :)

    I fixed all the conventions now so they are all the future ones.

    I will be adding traditional, blackwork etc artists in future updates as I have been concentrating on trying to research those and have loads to add but it all takes so much time :)

    Please share the apps and would be much appreciated if you could ask people you know to leave 5 star rating and some positive feedback on the apps market place page, this helps with it to climb in searches :)

    Done by Ryan Evans :)

    Sorry for the craps photos, there is a video on my Facebook and instagram pages.

    8.5 hours, puff adder with an ant on its nose tip, always loved that photo so thought I would get it done, still in progress :)



  10. All right. For those who've seen it all ready, for those who've been waiting, for those who don't know what the fuck I talking about, for those who don't care: here is my back now.


    Finished this Saturday at the annual Scottish tattoo convention in Edinburgh. Iain Mullen and Rudy Fritsch converged for the first time since we did the lines in June, to do some two machine shading on the lower part and add some extra detail. One more touch up session with Iain in Stockholm and then this experience is over. It's been a great ride on so many levels and if I were to explain how happy I am about the result I would have to invent some new words. Both Iain and Rudy rules and everybody who has the chance to get the chance should really consider getting something from them.

    I will post a longer write up on this thread full-back-piece-experience-thread.html shortly, perhaps tomorrow. Right now I have a bad fever to pull through. One good thing about getting tattooed is that, if you do it right, it teaches you how tough you really are. Peace!

    Wow mate, that's gorgeous :)

  11. Props @peterpoose for getting to get work from Nikko. I got an appointment with Rich Pineda this coming October.

    Back to your tattoo though.

    Maybe I'm not understanding but you want to tie in aspects of traditional to the sleeve he is going to do on you? And are you having Nikko do that portion as well I assume?

    Nikko like all the other artists would all do the same traditional type tattoos in realism. Nikko is doing my mums portrait at the top of my arm and I thought of something around it like from famous flash or traditional work, like the butterfly posted earlier or a mirror or locket? Not sure really, it all looks great in my head lol

    It was just an idea to try something new but it may not ever get to being tattooed, as it just might not work. Thinking about fillers also. I love the traditional little stars or dots but I dont think they would fit in well with realism pieces.

    I guess I have to speak with the artists and decide if it would work.

    At the moment I am thinking it will just look like realism pieces and not have any hint of the traditional side, which is hard to capture in realism I suppose?

    Not sure I am making any sense to you guys either lol

  12. Hello Peter. i've been using this app for about 2 weeks now and it's really great. You did a wonderfull job on this. The only remark i have is that once you clicked on a pin, the map zooms really close in on the whereabouts of the artist. For my taste to close because i find myself tapping on the zoom out button too much.

    Maybe for in the future we can search by style and find just the pins of artists who do for example realistic.

    Keep up the good work :)

    Thank you mate, its been a lot of work and still lots to do :)

    The problem is not the zooming in, its the zooming out.

    Let me explain.

    You need to zoom right in because there are some locations where artists work at the same location and when you zoom in it splits into the separate markers so you can click on each one.

    How it should work is that when you close that marker, it should zoom/pan back out. This not only has been pissing me off for like 6 months but others have said the same.

    Totally and utterly agree about the zooming, it annoys the shit out of me but with the current SDKs from both Google and Android it is not possible using their own SDKS, could probably be done if I threw 50k at it and made my own map SDK but thats not going to happen.

    I wanted the map to zoom out on artist exit to where you last searched or even to the country if that wasnt possible, which neither were.

    I've had so many emails regarding this problem with the developers and Google and Apple. They say the max zoom back out is a 5 and that wouldn't even be back out to a small town and for that they want $4000, so just have to wait for new SDKs to be released.

  13. Hi folks,

    Search the iOS Market Place for 'Brag Art List'

    Well finally the first phase of the app on iOS has gone live and can be downloaded. (The remove ads doesnt work still i dont think but is being fixed this week hopefully but the ads are not as bad as on Android so shouldnt be too intrusive)

    I would really appreciate if people could 5 star and write a review on it as the best thing since sliced bread lol on the actual app to help it climb in searches.

    But I would really like the hard truths, feedback's, criticisms, suggestions etc here please.

    Please be brutally honest here!

    There is a small icon in the top left corner for searching, Country, City, Town, etc or you can manually use the touch screen.

    In device use of apps for the links should be working on Apple.

    Artists working at the same location will show as just one marker until pressed and then it will split as it zooms in to more markers for the other artists, so don't forget to check those out

    Anyhow, please let me know what you think, even if you think its shit, I want to know and wont be hurt or offended and how it works on your devices as we could only test it on a few handsets as I don't own every phone in the world lol So I hope it works on everyone's devices. I tested it on my phone which is a flag ship phone, so it runs super fast for me but I tested it on some cheaper phones and it was slower due to all the markers but that is to be expected I guess.

    It has been made for both mobiles and tablets.

    The fonts and home screen is being re-designed as we speak

    All and any feedback welcome


  14. The classic Bert Grimm butterfly lady head might be a nice basis for the portrait of your mum. The whole project sounds really interesting, I can imagine it working really well. For what that's worth.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I can't help wondering if the use negative space as opposed to background might (potentially) have quite a role to play in creating the feel you're after - the rhythm and rhyme of the thing, if you will.

    I have not seen that piece of traditional before and that would certainly work, thank you!

    - - - Updated - - -

    Actually, what about looking to Thomas Woodruff for inspiration here? I don't know why I didn't think of him earlier, but there are some of his paintings in the Art From The Heart Tattootime and he does these really great, refined oil paintings of traditional tattoo themes and imagery and while they don't look like tattoos they get the feel of them right. I could see those working well for you.


    I am loving his artwork, right up my street. Only thing is and probably a big thing with this idea is I want BnG and I know this would work so much better with colour....

    Jody Dawber does some really nice traditional/neo traditional locket tattoos, and I've seen some good realistic lockets done too. Here are a few from her I've got saved on my phone from her instragram...





    Thanks mate, yes those are the sort of lockets I had in mind but with a more detailed cover of the locket maybe on one side, like opened.


  15. I like the idea a lot. Are you planning on having the tattoos stand alone or will you have some background tying them together?

    For designs, I'd suggest looking in books. There are so many good ones out there: the Sailor Jerry books, that Zeis book (the Scott Harrison page in there is something else), the Flash From the Bowery book, the Dietzel and Burchett books, Flash From the Past/Revisited...there's so much out there. Lucky's Tattoo Museum has a bunch of flash you can look at online to give you inspiration. There's so much neat stuff out there and there's probably a lot more variety and diversity in classic flash than most of us imagine.

    I think the biggest challenge with this idea would be doing traditional tattoos in a realistic style while still keeping the feel of traditional tattoos. If that's what you're going for. There's a bit in that Brian Bruno and Mike Rennie interview that really sticks out where Brian is talking about advice that Ed Hardy gave him about drawing: if you're drawing a tiger, you don't want to replicate a photo of it, you want to draw it how it makes you feel. I think that idea basically encapsulates one of the main differences between realism and traditional (loosely defined here) tattoos, and I wonder how bridging the gap between the two will work. Sometimes the most exciting things that happen in tattoos come from pushing boundaries and trying things to see how they'll work, so yeah, I love the idea.

    Thanks guys,

    Yes this is exactly the feel I would like to get. I would like a background to tie it all in. I am not totally sure that this idea will work as well as it does in my head as the two types of art are so different, so to get the mix and the right feel maybe really hard to do. I will od course speak to my artists and see for a final decision on whether it can be achieved.

    I mean if I do some of the flash as in traditional i realism then is it really traditional? It will just be a realism piece, so maybe this is not such a doable idea :(
