Sorry we’re a few days late on this!

Rather than writing an article about what’s going on, I figured it would make more sense to reblog this piece from TAM (hope that’s cool guys).

This is some seriously messed up stuff, and we wish Henk and co the best of luck getting it sorted. If anyone is holding any events to raise funds for the museum please let us know and we’ll gladly do a little post about it.

The entire Hori Smoku documentary is now free to watch on YouTube, and at over an hour in length it’s an absolute treat.

If ou don’t know who Sailor Jerry was, then you’re probably reading the wrong blog. Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins was one of the most influential tattooers of all time, and one of tattooing a original “grumpy old men”! With stories from the likes of Bob Roberts, Lyle Tuttle and Crazy Philadelphia Eddie, this documentary is real gold.

We’ve been a bit rubbish with posting recently, to make up for it here are a couple of tattoos from Adrian Edek.

I originally was just going to post the “NeverEnding Story” sleeve, but then I saw the other one and I couldn’t not post it! Mr Edek is definitely going on my tattoo bucket list, follow his work on Instagram @edekqwerty.

Movember Tattoo Extravaganza!

House of Mojo in Truro, Cornwall is holding their 2nd annual Movember event, following the success of the first one last year. Owner Tim Hinton will be doing moustache tattoos all day to help raise money for mens health charities.


From their Facebook page:

Movember team ASSEMBLE!
Another november, another movember. The only time we could do it this year is on a friday but were staying open late so head on down after work.

There will be a raffle again this year!! £5 a ticket and a prize of 2 hours tattooing by my good self. Tickets will be available at the shop from tuesday the 6th so grab them any time!!

Tattoos will be between £25 and £40 and a few different tashes will be available on the day. Not brave enough to sport a permanent moustache but still wanna help? Just drop a donation into the shop!! Any dontation will be awesome! As always all funds raised will be going to charity
If you need any more info contact me at the shop on 01872 270327 or via

It is taking place on the 30th of November, and if you can make it I highly recommend going down. Tim is a very talented guy, and giving up a whole day of tattooing (as well as the 2 hour raffle prize) is really generous of him, so get down there and show some support. Plus it’s a great way for the follically challenged to join in the Movember fun! Check out some examples of Tim’s work below.

Andrei Arlovski vs Devin Cole

Anthony Johnson vs. D.J. Linderman

Travis Bartlett vs. Tyrone Spong

Tyrone Spong’s MMA debut was everything I hoped it to be, notice how he walks off expecting an 8 count. BOSS.

Marlon Moraes vs. Miguel Torres

JZ Cavalcante vs. T.J. O’Brien
