Easter Beasts

It’s always nice to have folks come back in to show their healed pieces, Matthew came in to show me how his Foo dogs healed up this week, and they’re looking great amongst the regrown arm hair.

Scottish Tattoo Convention 2014

Last weekend was a busy one, tattoo talk with visiting buddies from around the globe, and a little bit of tattooing too.

The Scottish Tattoo Convention is always a friendly one, was great to be back after missing out last year while I was away travelling.

It was a full on weekend, I only booked in 2 pieces to give me plenty of time for chatting and a little time for judging –┬ásome very hard decisions to be made for best of show.

I made progress on Tom’s crazy aperture sleeve and gave his good lady some very sore feet.

Thanks to Jim and all the gang for putting on another great show.

There were a few late nights this week getting some other pieces done in the shop, after unpacking after the convention.

There’s a couple of pieces still in progress
