May 7th, 2012 One gratefully received comment
I would like to take the time to say thanks to everyone who reads my blog and message me etc letting me know it has helped them or they learnt something from it.
I am still traveling a lot and still writing for tattoo magazines and upcoming tattoo books and projects, this all means that i unfortunately do not have as much time to write blogs as i would like, so from now on i will mostly be posting blogs relating to tattooing or painting, for those who make the effort to seek it out.
I am fed up with the tattoo industry in the Uk right now, certain individuals have problems with other individuals and think they should drag everybody into it, bullying and black mailing them, if there is a problem it is between certain individuals and not the whole tattoo industry. telling people if they work certain tattoo conventions they cannot work other ones is bullshit and school yard bullying. over the past few months i have met and talked with a lot of internationally recognised artists scared of working certain shows because of things they have been told by other partys. Artists just want to work shows, tattoo, hang out and have fun.
therefore i shall not be posting anymore of my thoughts on the industry, i shall be watching from afar, keeping my head down and working my hands to the bone like i always do. I will work the shows i want to work in the cities i want to work in and hanging out with artists and friends who are only interested in tattooing and making art and nothing else!
