The Blue Eye of the Tiger …

Sorting through my photos today to try and release some additional storage space I came across this absolutely awesome Tiger from last year.   Lee created this piece on my daughter Poppy’s thigh and I think it is an absolute showstopper! 

Lee had the idea of adding to this thigh piece with a range of beautiful animals all in similar triangular shapes to create a leg sleeve.  Whilst I do think this would be a spectacular leg piece Poppy has decided to go for something a bit more floral when she adds some surround to the work.

Them boots were made for painting … 

So…we have a little shop on Amazon (Handmade at Amazon section – which sadly doesn’t allow us to sell our quirky clothes and Tshirts yet) where we showcase some of our arty farty stuff. In the shop are some of our hand-painted and hand-appliquéd handbags and briefcases, and we also sell prints of Lee’s awesome artwork. Every print is strictly limited edition and with Elvis, Bowie and other icons we have lots on offer. However our top selling item in our shop is this awesome Doc Marten’s print which has been in high demand. Just recently one was bought as a wedding present for a couple of old skinheads. What an awesome wedding present huh? 

I love that Lee’s artwork is displayed in homes all around the country.  Lee thonks that like all good artists his art will probably be worth more when he is dead … I much prefer the thought of people enjoying his art whilst he is definitely alive and kicking (in his Doc Martens of course). 

Oh and if you would like to order amy of Lee’s prints just drop us a message direct … it will save Amazon robbing us of 25% 😄

Fine art … 

Lee recently completed this wonderful tattoo inspired by  piece of art by Alberto Giacometti, a Swiss born painter and sculptor who died back in 1966. 

Our customer’s son was undertaking  an art project and the striking image dropped out of his art folder and dropped to the floor. It was found by his fascinated father who immediately thought it would make a pretty great tattoo. Of course, with Lee as your tattoo artist,  it makes an absolutely spectacular tattoo! 

Dying Romantic …

Lee recently completed this amazing tattoo on one of our regular customers.  The customer is also an artist currently creating some wonderful pottery work, and Lee always enjoys their  arty farty chats whilst he works. The customer drew up this beautiful design himself and Lee brought it to life on the skin.

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 …  ❤️🌈⭐️🌹💜

Pencil not stencil…

Customers usually bring Lee a photo of their tattoo request. Lee diligently reproduces their request just beautifully and the customer walks away happy that their requirement has been well met.  However, some of Lee’s regulars totally trust him to have absolute free reign. This is exactly what happened with one of our long standing customers who told Lee he wanted a skull and rose. Lee just drew it on to him free-hand. Great results for that extra trust in your artist ❤️

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?
