Snow White with love ❤️ 

Lee and I had our very first wedding anniversary at the weekend (also his 51st birthday of course) and to celebrate we booked a cute little circus wagon in North Amsterdam which we found on Air BnB. 

I awoke in the wagon in the big cosy bed, with the birds singing and the sun shining, and my romantic husband presented me with a red heart shaped box. I was so thrilled when I opened it to find this beautiful Snow White brooch that Lee had hand crafted in Das clay with a scalpel, and hand painted in acrylics  especially for me. 

Snow White is so very special to me as my angel Abigail adored Snow White and we played “Some day my prince will come” at her funeral. 

I waited a very long time for my prince but he was definitely worth that wait …  ❤️🌈⭐️🌹💜

Inky shoes …

So Lee came home from the studio with some tattoo ink accidentally dropped on his white plimsolls. He had only had them a short while and I commented on how he was always splashing ink on his clothes. The next day Lee sent me a photo of the same shoes … not with just a couple of splashes of ink on them but lots and lots and lots! 

Certainly different … what do you think? 

For the love of knitting…

So I love to knit … my beautiful mother taught me and my sisters when we were little. I always remember her knitting us such  beautiful clothes and then of course knitting for our children. It hasn’t been that long since she hung up her needles really! We three sisters have all had our creativity gifted to us by our mother.  Recently I have knit a ‘Trashcan’ jumper for Lee, baby clothes for friends, and dolls clothes for a dear little girl. I love this relaxing, old fashioned expression of art so much.  Inspired by all this I asked Lee to design me a tattoo that would represent the love and creativity of my mum and my own love and enjoyment of knitting. 

I simply adore this … 

Icons Galore … 

So … yesterday I was mostly creating little 6×4 greeting cards using Lee’s amazing Icon artwork. Originally the artwork was created for our Tshirts (£13)  but we realised that they are also pretty cool in mounts (£15 for a mounted 10 x 12) or on blank greetings cards (£3).  Each design has been hand drawn by Lee using an iconic image as inspiration, even the fonts on these have been hand drawn. My job is to trace and carefully vinyl cut each images.  I blinking love them … what do you think?

Pop art family snap … 

I was commissioned to create a special birthday card this week for my brother-in-law.  My sister, who commissioned the card, gave me total free reign to create something different.  I love a challenge … so found this happy family photo …  and traced it then cut it out in  vinyl with my Silhouette Cameo. 

I just love creating these very personal cards which I think are proper little works of art.

Fresh designs at The Freshwater Inn

So this weekend I have been mostly making polo shirts which were commissioned by The Freshwater Inn. 

We are so lucky to have this  warm and welcoming village pub as our local. The pub is situated in Freshwater East village just above the  beach and has beautiful sea views from the garden and conservatory.  The pub has just had a super duper make-over and the owners wanted some smart  new polo shirts for their staff team. 

Lee drew the original design for them (it’s absolutely  not just an off the shelf font folks)  and I got busy with the vinyl and cutting. 

We just took all the polo shirts up to pub and had a super scrummy Sunday lunch too! Absolute result! 

What do you think? (Dexter stuck his nose in the photo …good job it’s a dog friendly pub!) 

21st Birthday Celebrations for Trash

Well  … we are celebrating Lee’s 21st birthday … hold on I hear you say didn’t Lee turn 50 last year?  He did indeed but this is his 21st birthday as a professional tattoo artist!

Birmingham born Lee, also known as ‘Trash,’ has been an artist since a child, and enjoyed the challenge of creating art in many different mediums before he discovered that his favourite canvas was skin.    He has now been celebrating 21 years of creating beautiful tattoos.

His career began at The Ink Shack, formerly of Coventry Road, Birmingham, but he soon swapped the big city life for the contrasting calmness,beauty and serenity of Pembrokeshire.  Lee’s first studio was on the Darkling near Pembroke Castle, but he moved to his current location at the top of Main Street, Pembroke around 8 years ago.

His bright studio, featuring his photo realism portraits and tattoo themed art-work is a hidden treasure, yet Lee has customers travelling hundreds of miles for his award winning art, huge talent and of course his TWENTY ONE years of tattoo experience.

To celebrate this 21st birthday milestone the studio has had a pretty cool make-over and we have designed a new logo. Lee is offering some free studio Tshirts and embroidered patches (featuring our new logo of course) to customers booking tattoos over the next few weeks.  You just need to mention our 21st birthday when you book your tattoo.
