Rather than talking about the pile of rubbish Channel 4 showed last week (which was apparently about tattoos but seemed to me to be about people with some rather serious mental health problems), I’d rather talk about something awesome. Like the new episode of The Gypsy Gentleman.
For those unfamiliar with the show, it is made by American tattooer Marcus Kuhn who has been travelling from city to city, exploring cool places and making great tattoos with some of the best artists in the world. This episode is based in London, and features Valerie Vargas from Frith St Tattoo, and Ian Flower from New Skool Tattoos. Both of these guys are artists whose work I have been following since I became interested in tattoos, and it is great to see them getting some international attention. Rather than going on about why they are so awesome I’ll just let you watch the video and you can see for yourself!
