A Blinkin’ Top Swap…

Our postman Joe showed Lee a picture of a really cool Jack Daniels guitar that he had made from recycled wood. Lee, despite not being able to play the guitar, fell in love with it. Luckily Joe was also looking for some new tattoos and the creative pair struck up a swap deal. We now own the beautiful Jack Daniels guitar from 'Boxed Blues' (who also make stomp boxes) and Joe has some amazing new ink from 'Foreverart Tattoos'. Just love this reciprocity … I call it Pembrokeshire currency! Next swap hopefully a cool stomp box!
(Oh and if there is a builder looking for some amazing ink I want a little porthole installed in our bedroom wall 😄)

Ain’t nothing but a Hand Dog …

Today Lee created a gorgeous hand tattoo of the beautiful husky malamute cross named Buck. His owner is a previous customer who knew that Lee would do a fabulous job of the dog portrait! We are always very happy to have a very happy customer ❤️

Sweet swallow of love …

Way back in the late 1950’s my dad had tattoo of an old school swallow carrying a scroll of my mum’s name. Many many years later on a Turkish holiday he asked a local ‘artist’ to tidy it up. The ‘artist’ messed up what was once a beautiful poignant tattoo and my dad was keen for Lee to try and rework it.  However my dad takes Warfarin daily which means that he cannot have a tattoo.  Dad was disappointed and so Lee drew this sweet little rendition of the tattoo he would have liked to have created for my dad and we gave him the framed drawing as a gift. 

Tattoo art can bring also bring pleasure when it’s in a frame huh?

Hand in hand for always…

My brave and beautiful mother lost her fight against cancer this week. With her pin-up girl looks,  stunning figure, and her glamour and style, it is little wonder that my father has loved her since they were both just 17.  Towards the end of my mother’s illness my father spent many hours sitting at her bedside, talking with her and tenderly holding her hand. 

My sensitive, thoughtful, caring husband Lee has captured this immense love between my parents with this simply  beautiful and extremely touching  pencil drawing.

For my mother Janice … loved and adored by the same man for 61 years  ❤️
