Lion and Tigers and Bears*, oh my!

*Disclaimer: there are no bears in this post… but why not?! Bears are bloody awesome!


Animals are mint. There’s nothing more mint in the animal kingdom than the ferocious jungle kind.  That’s probably why we get so many requests for them. Laura has been doing some amazing black and grey big cats (and a few other jungle predators… are sloths predators?). Here’s a few of the beautiful creatures she’s done in the last few months.


If  you’d like to have a magnificent creature adorn your body, contact the studio through our Booking Page and book in with Laura.

Who wants a bear, somebody get a bear to make the title of this post work better. You could get one on you butt and you’d have a bear bum *badum tiss*. Thank you, I’ll be here all week. -Baz

Tattooing the Marvel Cinematic Universe

No, we haven’t given Tony Stark a tramp stamp (but if Robert Downy Jr wants one, we’ll happily do it).


Disney/Marvel, with the MCU, have done something that no other film franchise have managed. It’s managed to tie 19 films (and several TV series of varying quality) and hundreds of characters into one massive, coherent universe that has all come together with the release of Avengers: Infinity War last week. With many other films planned, it’s showing no signs of stopping. Infinity War is set to break all of the box office records and it’s well deserved. The film is breathtaking.

I’m not here to review the film or get into any spoilers but if you haven’t already seen Infinity War, but have watched some of the MCU films, get to the cinema and get it watched before someone spoils it for you. It’s a spectacle to behold. It’s worthwhile watching the first Avengers film, Captain America: Winter Soldier, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: Civil War, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man: Homecoming, the 2 Guardians of the Galaxy films, and Thor: Ragnorok beforehand though. It’s a big film with a lot of characters and it takes no time to go into their backstories. Ideally, you would want to watch them all first… but I tried to slim down the time needed to get to the big one.

Over the years, our artists have tattooed many MCU characters on many of our clients. The requests for new MCU tattoos come in all the time. These characters have touched people’s hearts in a way that’s only rivaled by the Star Wars franchise.

Here’s a few examples of some of the pieces done by Alex and Laura over the years. Details on how Alex did some of his bigger Marvel pieces can be seen in our previous blog here.


Kyle’s Pet Portraits

Everyone loves cats and/or dogs. After pornography and arguing about movies, posts about cats or dogs are the most popular things on these here interwebs. Do you have a pet dog or cat? Take a look at the gallery on your phone and I guarantee that you’ll find more photos of them than anything else.

This is why Kyle gets so many requests for portraits of people’s pets. He’s done more tattoos of cats and dogs than he has of people’s children. And why wouldn’t you want your little fury companion permanently etched on your body? They give us so much love and ask for so little in return.

When putting together a pet portrait, Kyle likes to get to make it a little more personal by incorporating a favourite toy, pet clothing, or maybe something their owner likes.

Below is a few of the many pets Kyle has tattooed.
