So after charging the battery for my camera today, i found out that it was actually just broken… Great.

So I’ve just dug around on my hard drive and found some pictures of some old flash, mostly from unknown artists, I’m not even sure whether any of these sheets have links or lineage to one another.

If anyone can shed any light on who any of these were made by that would be great.

A few more images retrieved that might be of relevance or interest..

Stoney St. Clair

Tattoo Jack – 1942

Some old biker art that I’m sure i found on someone else’s blog quite possibly White Knights In The House of Kolor

Just a few tattoos I’ve managed to remember to photograph recently. The peacock I finished just yesterday, hopefully Grace will come by when it’s all healed and i can get a picture of it then.

This owl is one of a pair, Paul came and got both sides of his ribs tattooed in the one day and is now sitting healing the tattoos while on jury service. Hopefully I’ll get a healed photograph of both of them when he drops by again.

Recently it has struck me that, not only did i need to create this blog but that i also need to photograph my work more regularly.

I’m hoping that by having this blog it will give me a greater reason to document more of the tattoos and other art work i produce.

For now the moment, here is a tattoo currently in progress, inspired by a Hokusai Print

Posting will commence momentarily
