Dear Diary,

Please can I have these tattoos for Christmas? I have been a very good girl and I deserve some beautiful art.

Thanks very much,

Alice Th’ink

PS Father Christmas if you’re listening, taking notes and possibly learning how to tattoo that would be great.

Dude or don’t?

Kid with tattoo

Anything seems to go in Russia. This 13-year-old was tattooed by his father.

I cannot decide what I think about the parents of this child. On the one hand they appear irresponsible and unfair. This child is going to have these tattoos for the rest of his life and who knows whether he will still like them next year, let alone when he is an adult. On the other hand let’s face it, he looks undeniably cool, cooler than my 27-year-old self can even dream of being.

I am sure he is the envy of many of his classmates, my mum wouldn’t let me get my ears pierced till I was in my teens. I was ridiculously jealous of the girls with the diamond studs. But is this insanity? No denying the tattoos look amazing and well done, but what are they going to look like when he grows into his adult skin?

On another note, when I have kids will they look this cool? Unlikely considering I was known as the fat eagle.

Adam Pearson – Suspicious tattoos.

Adam PearsonRight or wrong?

Should someone be pulled off a flight for having tattoos?

Adam Pearson, an LA food stylist was asked to step off a flight as another passenger had reported his ‘suspicious-looking’ tattoos. Soon after Pearson twittered “Just pulled off delta flight, passenger said I was suspicious looking due to my tattoos @DeltaAssist not happy at all #goldmedallion fail”. This tweet kicked off an online furor of angry foodies and tattoo enthusiasts.

The question is; was this the right thing to do? Should flight attendants have listened to one prejudice passenger who judged someone purely by their own standards? Or should the passenger who complained have been asked to move instead? Who in this crazy world is in the right?

My tattoo crush.

Feature girl: Linda Collin

LindaLinda Collin, my new tattoo crush. Beautiful girl with beautiful art, she definitely feeds my tattoo imagination. Here is what inspires her.

“I don’t know why I got into tattoos, but I always wanted one. When I moved to London it was like starting a new chapter in my life, I thought that this is the perfect time to get a tattoo to represent my life, myself, and new beginnings in London.

Blood Brothers skull“This is when I got the Mexican sugar skull on my forearm. Like me at first glance, it looks scary and some people get a bit intimidated. When you have a second look you realise the girlyness and femininity, with pink bows and roses contrasting against the grey of the outline.. (tattoo: Blood Brothers)

“All my tattoos have special meaning; they represent a part of someone that has made a big impact on my life, like my sister and my grandfather. I think it’s important to have a meaning behind your tattoos as they are so personal.Tash and tears

“I don’t know what inspires me, I think it’s all in the moment and I see different things that I like and sometimes it’s just in my head, it can be hard when you don’t have a picture of what you want, but you just have to discuss your ideas with your tattooist and make it a joint collaboration

“I’m planning to get both my sleeves done by the end of next year. I sort of have all the details in my head, I want to continue with the old school theme on my left arm and then do Japanese art on the other one, and maybe my feet.. It’s such an addictive thing and you sort of get new ideas all the time. For me, my art is a work in progress.”

So guys, watch this space…I am intrigued to see where Linda’s tattoo journey takes her.
