Ooooh. Very, very nice dimi3. I am well impressed.
How long did that take ? Looks a bit finicky, with the colours & shading an all...

Also, what's the deal with that place AKA? Are they using that front room as a tattoo studio then for a few weeks ? I couldnt quite work out from the thing on there the other week what the story with the house was, if it was just gonna be an art space or what. It looked like they were setting up some tattooing space in the room but it wasnt clear if it was just for that night or...

And I got myself an appointment with that lad Liam Sparkes in February.

I'm not sure what are the other places. I had an appointment in London Tattoo once, they charged 70 per hour or something like that, I cancelled it anyway. All my other tattoos done by a good friend. So yeah, it's expensive than that, but it's well worth it.

Not really, they know it's permanent and they gotta get it bang on.
I'm sure they'd rather be told it's not right and get it bang on so you're happy and come back for more.
LadyLiz had her most recent one(its only tiny) redrawn several times before she was happy.

Yeah - if I'm not happy with it. Goes back to the drawing board. You're often reliant on the artist getting what you want.
The more work you have done with someone, the easier this relationship becomes. I think that is important as well.

Yeah I've said I'm not keen on what he's come up with, being as diplomatic as possible because he works in he shop my gf is apprenticing in. I just wanted some super simple script but he came up with something really elaborate which looked cool but not at all what I want!

@ dakin : is your real name dakin ? I'll mention to Liam that he's getting good kudos on here when I'm in the chair with him. Where is the lamp located on your body?
There's an exhibition on at the moment at the Wellcome Collection near Euston station, called "Death". I was at it on Saturday. You might like to check it for inspiration.
http://www.wellcomecollection.org/wh...W7HtAodemcAmA#

@ tenderloin: Is that piece finished ? It looks like you could fill in more - but I like the outline / black line way it is now.

Nah that's it done.
I got the idea from tattoos of saints he'd done on himself in the same style - it was three or four years ago when he was working out of his bedroom off brick lane.
I prefer line tattoos as I like the way the skin is used.

It's by far and away my favourite tattoo and he is likewise my favourite artist

He's also a sick drummer!

@ dakin : my family crest is a snake wrapped around a sword, so I have asked him to do something along those lines, obviously bringing his own style to it. I quite like the look of that thumb cobra he did, so maybe similar to that but on a larger scale. My right arm already has some other stuff on it so the space is a little crowded, I hope he can work with it. Putting in a sword might be too difficult so it's probably just going to be a long bladed knife.



- What's your real name Tenderloin ? Are you also booked in with more from Liam ?

Not trying to be a heraldry pedant (which, sadly, I can be...) but do you mean the actual crest, as in your family coat of arms has a helmet on top and a crest on top of that and the crest is a snake wrapped round a sword? Cause that would be pretty rad in itself. Or are you using crest to mean coat of arms?

*quick bit of googling* - ooh, are you a Moriarty, then? Cause if so, then you do mean the actual crest. Cor!

I'm just not a fan of back pieces.

The top of a mans arse is one of the most stomach turning things I can think of (mixture of embarassment/ugliness) - this is probably why
