- Tattooist recommendations – London
As part of an accelerating spiral of liberating madness which has so far this year seen me:
– have an affair with a considerably younger woman;
– end my marriage;
– resign from my job;
– buy a black and gold patterned duvet cover;
– decide to move to another city;
– dabble in internet dating; and
– acquire a Canadian-built long-travel hardtail frame
I have decided to act on the nagging feeling that I should have a tattoo.
This will take the form of a bleeding heart, with small scrolly-thing reading "Dust", based as closely as possible on the tiny Jo Burt sticker of the same nature that I had on my suspension fork lowers in 2003 and will be located on my drive-side calf. So far so good.
I appreciate that this is a simple design job, but I do want decent colour work. Anyone recommend anywhere particularly in the environs of London?

London Ink was a fictional studio set up for a TV series. A friend of mine (Tony the Butcher) got his Angel of Meat half sleeve from Louis Malloy as part of Series 2.
Phil Kyle (one of the other artists on London Ink) has a studio in Brighton (Magnum Opus). I think Dan Gold also has a studio in London.
Big Dummy – call Evil in the Needle and see if Inma still works there. I know she works at Magnum Opus in Brighton Thursday and Friday, but not sure if she still works in London anymore. Inma's work is pretty amazing (take a look at her My Space galleries).Posted 7 years agocinnamon_girlSubscriber
LOL at BigDummy. 😀
I can empathise having been through some of these things myself. In fact I asked the very same (tattoo) question on here a while back.
But, I am a typical woman, and I do change my mind. In the end I decided money would be better spent on bike bits, killer heels, luxury lingerie, botox etc. 🙄
Of course being a lady I would never divulge my, er, eventual indulgence. 😉
Good luck with your decision though!Posted 7 years ago
My lord you are going to be a bit rock and roll for B****** S*****.
Your bro told me you were considering Brizzle. Had no idea you'd decided to see it through.
Good choice that man.
When I was a trainee, one of the corporate partners resigned suddenly at Christmas and left the firm immediately. He was next seen by one of his previous assistants at the airport on the way to the fooball European Champs, bare chested and draped in a Union Flag entirely (and I'm including head and face) covered in tattoos.
Heed this as a warning. 😀Posted 7 years agowartonMember
the Family Business is where you want to be. Mo copoletta is The best in London, if not the UK, and he also brings in some amazing guest artists from around the world from month to month. I have a couple of friends in Newcastle who only use him, traveling to london regularlyPosted 7 years ago
Really! Gift from the internet. No, don't think so.
Had a scary moment just then that you might be someone from my past come to track me down….
Can you let me have the full link?
He would always ensure that he held onto his shirt sleeves, even if, say, scratching his head. No wonder..! When he had hair, after a haircut my fellow trainee who shared his room realised that she could see a swastika on the top of it. Which alarmed her as she's Asian….
BD – this is a double warning…!Posted 7 years ago
