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?
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.

We really enjoy a bit of extra arty-fartyness on special days and I am always so excited wondering what creativity Lee will surprise me with.
This morning I received a beautiful piece of polished drift wood picked up from our beach. Lee had engraved the driftwood in a proper old fashioned style with a L & K in an arrowed heart. Simple but yet so beautiful.
Lee’s gift from me was a specially designed Valentine’s Day 2017 Tshirt featuring the title of one of our favourite songs and the image of a dead man in the boot of a car! We both agree it is a very romantic gift indeed ❤️️
Happy Valentine’s Day to all you lovebirds! Hope you all have a little love today and if you don’t then never give up … as me and Lee have shown it’s never too late to find your true love ❤️
So we have spruced up our studio counter with our new studio logo stickers which we designed and created ourselves. It was a very fiddly task, and it took me a good few hours, but we now have a Warhol style studio counter which we think is pretty cool! We also made sure a studio logo sticker is on the new loo seat!
What do you think?
We finished the brand new design for the latest studio Tees today! We are blinking chuffed with the result. What do you think?
£13 made to order … just let us know your size and colour preference ❤️ (add £2.85 postage)
Lee tattooed this awesome little skull on the wedding finger of a long standing customer yesterday. For something so small the detail is amazing. I had popped in to the studio to take Lee a fresh “Pan au Chocolate” for his breakfast (my husband is mighty spoilt) and the lovely, newly wedded customer told me he would never go to any other tattooist EVER! Obviously a man who appreciates a great tattoo and a great tattoo artist!
Next two weekends ‘Trashcan Emporium’ is going to be busy! Picton Castle Victorian Christmas Market on 19th and 20th, and Manorbier Castle Christmas Fayre on 26th and 27th.
Unfortunately Picton Castle only had outdoor space available. We just got our gazebo out and it looks incredibly flimsy …. please please please let the weather be kind to us!
I have made a lovely selection of cards for our stalls and I really don’t want these ace cards getting drenched in our lovely Welsh weather!
