Where are you getting done Gerns, There is one in Devizes that I have been told is the Mutts Nuts
Sorry it's been a while VENISON But I was so pissed off. I went to a fella in Bath who was supposedly the business. I got in earlier than I posted, as I exchanged appointments with my son who had to work or something. Instead of cancelling, we swapped.
What I didn't expect, was after explaining what I wanted in more detail, the tattooist said, and I quote, " I can'tdraw a bird mate" I said ffs, I thought you were supposed to be an artist. No he replied, a tattoo artist. Sh*t, he couldn't do anything free hand, and my idea was not gonna be found on a transfer He himself had a brilliant copy of a photo of his young son on his shoulder. He wouldn't tell me who done it, but said he tried to watch the guy, who wouldn't give him any tips on how it was done. What a load of crap, £50 deposit and a three month wait for a sitting, and the tosser couldn't draw! £ got my £ 50 quid back though.
I've found a guy in Calne, 'Inkspirations' Knew him years ago before he started tattooing. He used to teach art at Chippenham College. Ian Prangley, terrific artist, and he has drawn up what I wanted. Saw it today, and booked in Wednesday. Will post pics when it's healed up. If you want anything unusual, freehand, he's a good artist, and understands the difference with his 'reality' concept and the 'iconic symbol' concept. Has merged the two brilliantly.
I will update as and when it's ready.
