Thank you to all our lovely family, friends and followers who have supported Trashcan Emporium over the last year … we love creating and sharing and of course more lush creativity to come in 2018 …

Lee and I just swapped Xmas presents … we always make something lovely for each other … Lee made me this stunning wall plaque out of chicken wire and Das clay, whilst I sat cross stitching by the fire Bronte style …

New Year Changes…

This last month there have been so many no shows or last minute cancellations that we have finally taken the decision that as of 1st January 2018 a deposit must be paid at the time of booking. We will still be able to take the booking via social media but you will either need to make a payment via Paypal or pop into the studio with your cash or card to secure it. We hope that our customers understand Lee is just a small one man studio in a small one horse town and if someone fails to show up for their booking then Lee has not only wasted his time drawing up the tattoo but also loses a days pay.

Lee offers his customers his professionalism and his immense talent … now I think that’s definitely worth making a deposit on … what do you think?

Ps … and here is a beautiful intricate mandala piece that Lee created for a lovely customer this week ❤️

Lemmy is God …

Lee has been working for a while on his portrait of Lemmy. I have so enjoyed watching the gradual transformation from a sketch on a canvas to an absolutely jaw dropping finished piece. Truly my husband is so damn talented!

We are going to be offering strictly limited edition prints of this painting, and of course all Lee’s other work, and you can order via social media or our Trashcan Emporium shop on Handmade at Amazon. Who will be the proud owner of print # 1/100?

Shake The Death …

We had a quiet few days at the studio after three no shows three days running. The first customer let us know 20 minutes after the appointment was due to start, the second customer let us know the evening before (with a very genuine reason and a respectful offer to still pay for her appointment) and the third just didn’t bother to show. Of course this means it’s usually too late to rebook anyone else in so Lee loses a days wage and all the hard work he puts into preparing beautiful tattoos for our customer is often wasted. It really makes me GRRRRRRRRRRR!

Of course most of our customers do value and respect Lee and his beautifully creative work, and are always mighty pleased with the end result. Lee absolutely loved creating this old school coffin tattoo which declares “shake the death from your bones.”
