I’m staying in Scheffield which is in northern England. It’s pretty big... there are about fifty thousand students alone here. “Thou Art Tattoo” is an amazing shop. Great staff, great location, great energy. I’m having a hard time, when I think about leaving. I think I should work here a few months a year. I stayed tonight after work to paint with Tancho, an artist here in the shop. He’s never oil painted before. We got some food and beer and went to town. It was a great time. He’s an awesome guy with an amazing attitude and way about him. He’s originally from Argentina,a dn has worked in Spain too. I’m glad I met and got to work with him. He spacializes in Japanese and Americana. Real nice atyle. I’m hoping to bring home a little watercolor from him. I did a demo for him to see how I paint. I’ll post a pic of it. I’ve done eight paintings over here so far and will post all the pics soon. Here’s a few... tattoos too. Everyone so far has really been unbelievable. Great food... great everything! Thanks Thou Art Tattoo. Two more days here. Skin Deep is coming on Saturday to do a feature on me and my work... excited about that! and then I’m off to Birmingham to tattoo Jo Harrisonand spend a day in her shop. I’ll keep you all posted. Enjoy the pics!
