Tattoo Tea Party round up

Here’s a little round up of some of the tattoos done at Tattoo Tea Party last weekend in Manchester. It looks like it was a great weekend, and I’ve heard nothing but great things about it, I’m absolutely gutted I missed it. I’m determined to make it next year!

The pressure is on

I’m always really interested to see who tattooers choose to get tattoos from. They are the experts after all, so it’s great when some of my favourite artists get work from each other.

Here is a tattoo Jordan Croke from Second Skin Tattoo did on Oddboy while guesting with him at Real Art Tattoo. Jordan does some of the very best portrait tattoos in the UK, but it still must have been pretty nerve wracking to tattoo someone like Oddboy! I think you’ll agree he did a pretty amazing job.


Can you tell what it is yet?

Jordan Croke is fast becoming one of my favourite realism style tattooers in the UK. His portraits are always spot on, and I love that he manages to do everything in his own unique style. It’s always refreshing, particularly with realism, to see someone that brings something a little different to the table.
