So I’ve rested up over Christmas, got to know my new additions to my family (of the kitten variety) , and am ready to start the new year, which is shaping up pretty well already.
I ended last year with some nice tattoos, thanks to all my customers in Edinburgh, London, Stockholm, Brussels and Evian, hope to see some of you again this year. Here’s some of what I’ve been doing this past month.
Wolf head all healed up now, just added the geo dotwork and the other arm.
In progress mandalas going down back.
Sleeve in progress.
And here’s the new trouble makers, I’m allowed to be a proud parent just this once.
Exciting guest spot announcements coming up….

Last week at Lew and Danny both travelled up from down south to get tattooed in Edinburgh.
Lew sat for a whole day to complete his abstract geometric sleeve.
Danny stuck it out for two and a half days for his lady Odin and mandala half sleeve and chest panel, which I was really happy with the result of.
It’s interesting to note that the larger more complex projects are coming from clients travelling from down south, and I reckon it’s time that the Scots step up!

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 – some 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
And some one shot fun
Roman numerals not by me.
Edinburgh customers are coming to me with some great ideas this year so far, making it a pleasure to be back.
Londoners, I have 1 spot remaining for my guest spot at Seven Doors, London in May, email firstname.lastname@example.org for bookings.
