So, I have mostly spent today hanging all Lee’s amazing work at The Torch Theatre in Milford Haven and I am so happy with the space, lighting and how it all looks there! Even whilst I was preparing the room visitors to The Torch were popping in to the gallery and gave me wonderful feedback about Lee’s work. Lee spent the morning tattooing at the studio and arrived just as the last piece was being hung. The exhibition is officially open and we are looking forward to our special viewing on Saturday 7th April at 7pm.
Blinking heck I am one very proud wife … ❤️
Lee loves to tattoo something very different and was very happy with the request of a recent customer. This temple skull was an interesting, unusual and technical piece for Lee to ink. I have to be honest I was blown away by this piece…
We had a brand new customer yesterday for this stunning Japanese dragon face! The customer wanted a hand tattoo that tied in with his Japanese themed sleeve but was completely open to Lee’s creative ideas and freehand input. Our happy customer was chuffed with the result and has already booked back in to have Lee work his magic and repair some previous tattoos.
What do you think?
On the back of our sweary bobble hats, Lee’s best mate in Brum commissioned a politer version, but one with the incredibly strong and powerful message to ‘Fu#k Cancer’. Cancer stole my gorgeous little girl , my beautiful mother, my fun loving brother-in-law and my funny teenage cousin. It has also impacted so many other family members and friends. So I spent much of this weekend knitting up our latest design and this lovely lot will be posted off to their new owners tomorrow! If you want one for yourself then just drop us a message … each sale includes a donation to Cancer Research.
Oh and this is one bobble hat that I will most definitely be wearing with pride … Fu#k Cancer indeed!
We sometimes get asked if we remove tattoos. Of course the beautiful ink created by Lee is never the offending tattoo, it is the tattoos done by a “friend” or that you had a “cheap” quote for. Beautiful ink created by an experienced and highly skilled tattoo artist is never going to be cheap, and whilst you should hold your friends close your tattoo artist deserves a special place in your life. However if you really do need to get rid of that offending ink pop into the studio and take a look at the bad boy that Lee just painted 😄
Some customers really do their research. A brand new customer this week had a beautiful Peony Mandala inked on her thigh. The very smart customer had done her research, reviewed Lee’s art work online and saw his talent. She then travelled from Cardiff for her appointment and was completely delighted with her finished piece. It’s what I always say … it’s never too far a journey for art that is going to be on your body for the rest of your life ❤️
I am so goddamn happy. Between the snow and a couple of days annual leave I have enjoyed spending quality time in my craft room cosied up with my knitting machine. So, Lee gave me a photo of a jumper he really liked and asked me could I knit one similar. So without a pattern, but with a swatch, a tape measure and a bit of maths I recreated the exact same jumper for him. I am blinkin’ chuffed … it fits him perfectly (great maths by me) and he absolutely loves it! ❤️
