UK Top Tattoo Artists – THE SKETCHBOOK!

UK Top Tattoo Artists is pretty much the coolest thing on facebook. If you haven’t liked the page yet then do it immediately or I’ll tell the internet police.

Believe it or not, the page is run by only one chap, and as well as working his arse off to create probably the best tattoo page on facebook, he has now turned his attention to putting together a sketchbook to raise money for Dove House Hospice. A ridiculous list of amazing tattooers have donated original artwork to the project, with names such as Jason Butcher, Mat Lapping and Liane Moule getting involved.

The book is being limited to a run of 50 copies, and at only £30 each they are an absolute bargain. To pre-order a copy email UKTopTattooArtists@hotmail.co.uk with your details, and you best do it quickly before you miss out! The original artwork will also be auctioned off some time soon, so keep an eye on the facebook page if you fancy a chance at getting your hands on a piece of original work by one of the best artists in the land.
