Hey everyone!

I’ve added some more “wannados” to the art section,

Here are the tattoos I’d like to make!

Also here is a work in progress from last week I tattooed on my friend Leigh!

It’s a concept piece based on her personality and life experience. I’m hoping to tailor more of my tattoo designs in this way.

Also I got to tattoo Emily’s old Cat pal Lelu on her last week! Old kitties are so cute.

Thanks for looking!

Books closed?

Hey everyone!

Since leaving Jericho Tattoo Emporium things have been really hectic

Here is the brief lowdown!

I am currently splitting my time between Black Rabbit Tattoo Collective in Newbury, Arkham Tattoo in Kidlington (Oxford), Underground ink in Barnet and O’ Happy Dagger in Amersham.

Due to the odd working hours, and the crazy but lovely response to my recent work I’m totally booked up until October.

I may be going to the U.S for a guest spot in October (or may be November/December) for a few weeks and am currently waiting on information on dates and length of stay etc so until I recieve the info I have closed my books temporarily to avoid having to disappoint/rearrange anyone.

Sorry guys

I will be putting on my facebook page and this blog when I’m opening up my books again and for which studios. This may be mid-late September. Ongoing work and prepaid deposits will get first priority, but I will be taking on new work too.

If you want a new piece and don’t mind waiting until October/November/December for it please email back in a couple of months including

Subject matter- and how specific or open you are for me to go crazy on your design

Style ( just say my style if you like all my other stuff 😀 )

Size- in inches or cm OR “full sleeve” “full leg” and “full back”

Placement

Whether you want it in Colour or black and grey

Length of time you can feasibly sit

any reference material you have amassed-these could include things like olour schemes, poses of birds or happy little pet faces.

If it is a cover up, a photo of your existing tattoo next to a ruler or an easily recognised object such as a DELICIOUS BISCUIT (everyone knows how big a custard cream is)

Where you are based, which studio would be more convenient for you and whether you are willing to travel.

What days suit you best, weekends tend to get booked up super fast so if you can do weekdays you will probably get in faster.

If you include all this information it will be super easy to get you in as soon as possible 🙂

In October my prices for new work will be- £50 minimum charge, £90 per hour or £400 for a full day. To book a day I require a £100 deposit, anything less will be a £50 deposit. These are payable by paypal or bank transfer- you can get the details on request

 

If you are an existing customer, please include a photo of what you already have (so i can remember how far we’ve gotten!) and how long you want to sit for, as  well as how much you currently have on deposit.  Existing work does have priority and will be charged at old pricing rates!

In the meantime you can follow me on fb or instagram for any news!

Thankyou for your continued patience 🙂

Summer

Hey everyone, long time no update- I’ve been a wee bit busy with all the travelling from Oxford! First update is that I now have a Travel section on my site for guest spots and convention news. Second is that I have settled into the new routine and am having fun in Newbury at Black rabbit once again! As well as starting at Arkham in Kidlington, which is a lovely, chilled out little studio.

So since the last update I went on a portrait painting course in Cornwall. Here are some of the paintings I’ve done, the rest can be found in my gallery.

Then a week later I travelled to Kerala for a well deserved break. I had an amazing time, by far one of the best places I’ve ever been. I came back uber relaxed after all the stress and incredibly inspired.

So, even with the post holiday blues I got stuck straight back into work feeling better than ever! I finished off Jessie’s peacock finally.

And did this cute little fella, covering up some old kanji. I’m loving pissed off looking owls at the moment!

I made this WW2 bear for Alan, complete with trench knife

and also made this goat on Norm

I just bought a new camera too so hopefully I will be putting out much better photos of my work. After chatting to Jess I realised I need to put as much effort into taking photos as I do creating the tattoos otherwise the photographs won’t do them justice.

Thanks for looking guys

Week one

So the first week back in Jericho Tattoo Emporium was a great one.

Got a bit more done on Aubrey’s Jackelope Sleeve

Also got a healed shot of Jessie’s Flamingo tattoo

and started another tattoo on her too, a large peacock piece! Can’t wait to show you a photo of that next time she comes to Oxford.

And I got some more done on Victoria’s little mermaid tattoo

It’s my day off today, a busy one of course but after I get all my little jobs, drawing, sketching, updates and emails done I might go and have a little wander round Oxford.

Hope everyone is having a great Monday!

Obligatory Christmas post!

Hey everyone, so on Friday I had my last day at picture house in Chippenham- which was sad but I am happy to have met some wonderful people and had a well needed “good time” at work for the last 3 months!
Who knew that was even possible?

I will miss those crazy people, but will see them on the regs at conventions next year!
here is a tattoo I did on my last day

pissed up old tomcat on Ed, I want to do more like this!

The good news is I have found a permanent place to work in Jericho in Oxford as of February 2014 and will officially be an Oxford tattooist! It’s a private studio in the heart of Jericho, 5 minutes walk from Oxford train station. So it is mega easy for all you Reading and Berkshire people to get to. If you have an appointment with me I will be phoning you to tell you where it is don’t worry!

Here is a christmassy tattoo I managed to get a totally healed photo of recently

I’ll keep you all updated on the Oxford antics and once I move all my stuff to the new studio I’ll snap some pics!
I hope everyone has a good christmas and a happy new year!
