Jellyfish…

Walking on our beach on Friday night we came across a jellyfish just washed onto shore, still bright with life. It transpired to be a Portuguese Man O’ War which, as a lover of sea swimming, gave me a proper shudder of horror. Yet there was no horror in respect of the stunning Jelly-Fish that Lee inked onto one of our regular customers the very next day. The tattoo has really captured the grace, beauty and incredible detail of these strange creatures. This jellyfish tattoo is part of a nautical themed sleeve – still a work in progress, and I have to say whilst I absolutely love this jellyfish tattoo I really don’t want to bump into one whilst out swimming! Eeek!!

Now bring me that Horizon…

The view from our bungalow looks out over the bay and I spend hours looking at the horizon. It fascinates me how the horizon is made up of such beautifully coloured lines. These beautiful lines have been inked by Lee today in this stunning black and grey stomach piece on one of our lovely regulars. Now bring me that horizon….❤️

That’s Amore

I am very lucky to have an talented artist for my husband. Truly, I have never ever felt so valued and appreciated. Of course, when you are adored by an artist, you will become a muse for his creativity. I feel very lucky to have been the subject of Lee’s inspiration many times over. He has drawn and painted me so often that I am sure we could stage a whole exhibition called “The Artist loves his Wife.” It is very strange to see yourself through an artists eyes and when you look at the art it can be hard to believe that’s how someone sees you. I feel exactly that way about this stunning drawing that Lee created whilst we were in Rome a few years ago. ❤️

A unique Tee for a Strange Fish…

So a lovely friend of ours had his 50th birthday this week. He is known affectionately as “Strange-Fish” and I decided to make him a special, strange-fish kinda birthday Tee. I love making one-off T-shirts knowing that no one else in the world will have one exactly the same. I just love how it turned out too!

Oh and don’t forget if you want a unique Tee for a special friend, or special occasion, or just to be damn different, we can help!

A great big gorgeous FIRST …

A lot of people choose a small simple tattoo for their first tattoo and as they get braver go bigger and bolder. Well one of our recent customers did the exact opposite. The lovely Lowri had her first tattoo gifted to her for her 18th birthday. It was present to last a life-time from her tattoo loving daddy and step-mummy. Both parents are regular customers and knew that Lee would do their girl mighty proud… and he absolutely did. What do you think of this impressive Polynesian style sleeve?

Father inks Son…

Yesterday was a special Father/Son day at the studio as Lee opened up on his studio on a Wednesday to work on his son. His son has an interest in Japanese masks and Lee worked up something pretty different along that style of work. I had regular updates from the studio and enjoyed seeing how this skull mask tattoo came together. What do you think?

PS – I did wonder if, when his mates admire his tattoo, my stepson says proudly “my daddy did it!” 😄

The Beautiful Melissa …

I popped into the studio with some lunch for Lee and had the pleasure of chatting with a lovely customer who was having this old school style hand tattoo. He had just come back from a fabulous holiday but didn’t make the stupid mistake of having a ‘soon to be regretted’ holiday tattoo. Instead he returned home and sought out Lee for this beautiful hand piece in a style I just adore. What do you think?
