Gift Cards, Twitter and Tumblr!

So today we got some brand new gift cards in, they look super sexy and would make a great gift for anyone who's a tattoo lover, or even someone who's always ummed and ahhed about getting one and just needs that last little push!


These are available to buy now and can be used either for tattoos or piercings.

If you're up on twitter, Jo is posting a lot on there now with what we're up to at the shop and putting up some tattoos here and there, so go have a look @AccTattoo and I'm sure you'll find some "interesting" tweets on there.

And I have my own blog now on Tumblr, at thegentlemantattooist.tumblr.com. I'll still be posting work on here but as Eva and I will both be posting on here it could get a little confusing, so this will be just my stuff, and when Eva sets up her own page I'll post a link on here as well.

And lastly some tattoos!

This is the second session on Anthony's leg, might squeeze another quick session in before Derby but if not we'll have a nice long session and get it finished there, as long as he's a brave boy!


Started this Boog piece last night, should finish it in the next few weeks.


This is a pin up drawn up by Jo, it's similar to the one we have outside the shop but with just a few changes to it. Looks really nice in flesh and we might put some shade in it, but I think it looks like a good piece as just line work.

Big pieces in the pipeline

If you're viewing this on your Mobile then hopefully you're finding the new layout a big improvement! It's a bit more organised and easier to navigate.
At the shop we've had a few big pieces started/ in progress recently and just wanted to share them as I've not been able to post any small ones recently! We're also about a month away from the State Of The Art convention and we're getting all geared up for it, just writing down lists of what we need and getting some tattoos lined up to do on the weekend.

I've had this Koi piece drawn up for over a year now and Anthony's finally decided to get it done. We've got another session to do at the studio and then we're hoping to finish it off at the convention, so it will definitely keep me busy for a little while!


This rose on Christian is the start of a half sleeve. I love doing roses and doing them this size is a really fun project. Got 3 more to put on after this one and then filling the background with leaves and some script.


Mauro's come back for another half sleeve (he had the dragon koi with samurai mask put on his other arm), this time for a dragon. We've had a few sittings with this and I wanted to post an in progress picture to show how it's getting along. It's going to be very bright when it's finished and should fit in very well with his right arm.
