So as the title suggests this turkey is back from Turkey and what an amazing time I did have! If you have ever considered a trip to Turkey I would highly recommend you do it. Awesome place, people are wonderful and the food is to die for. Loved it! I can't wait to get back there!
|Me on top of Mount Emla (3724m). I think we walked 160km over 3 weeks, crazy!|
And on the home front the guys have been very busy indeed (sorry guys). The shop has been flat out the past few weeks. But not so flat out we can't fit people in! It has come to our attention that there are rumors floating about that we have an 18 month waiting list to get in with any of our artists. I just wang to set the record straight that this is untrue! Yes, when we first opened Matt had an 18 month wait time because he was the only artist we had and had a massive back log of work to get through. He has now caught up on all that and we share the work amongst 3 artists now, so there is no longer a long waiting period. So for appointments with Jamie and Simone (depending on what you want), the most you would have to wait is 2-3 weeks. For Matt about 6 weeks.
In saying that Matt and I are heading to Bali and Japan next week. So we will be away from 29th July and will not get back to work until the 19th of September. So anyone with ongoing work, sorry, it will have to wait until we return (but I think we have made most people aware of this). Anyone wanting anything new can send me an email and I will be checking it while I am in Japan. We can then get you sorted as soon as we get back. I am hoping to blog while we are over in Japan, so stay tuned to hear about all the travels and tattooing!
If you do call the shop during this time, please, please leave a message, as the guys will not always be able to answer the phone.
Ok so that's all the house keeping stuff. Now the tattoo's! So today we went into the shop because we had a "photo day". We had our mate Adam come in to take a whole bunch of shots of Matt's work. As you are probably aware by now, Matt and I are shockingly bad at taking pics (plus the shop is so damn dark). So we thought it best to get someone who actually knows what the hell they are doing to come in and do it for us. So hopefully we will have some nice pics to post soon.
In between the professional shots I took some on my mobile (which worked out kind of ok). Some of them you have seen before but at least these shots are all healed. So some pics I took today:
|And this morning Matt squeezed our favorite funny man Tom in for some knuckle tattoo's. I just felt like taking pics|
|Mark's finished dragon all healed|
|Mark's other arm, done a little while back|
|Don't think we have ever had pics of this one, Jayd's camera on the back of his neck|
|And Danielle's dragon was done way back when but just needed a little touch up before we got some pics|
|Shaun's leg all healed|
|Mr Snake on Matt (Bottom half of arm not by Matt)|
|Amanda's sugar skull|
And then some work Jamie and Simone have done lately:
|By Simone (in progress)|
Ok, so that's it for now. Sorry for the delay in the blog, I am sure everyone has forgotten us by now.
Oh and don't forget we do post a lot of work in Instagram, so if your interested in seeing work more often get on it!
