Sometimes, it’s just hard to book in with the tattooers you really love. You might live far away, or they could be really booked up for a while, so you don’t want to miss any opportunities. Thankfully, I’m fucking lovely to you and tell you about this sort of thing while I seep jealousy from every pore and wish all writers were loaded.
Eckel’s just updated his blog today with some good news- he’s taking appointments again, from the 1st of June! These appointments will be for anything from the 1st of July to the 30th of September. Eckel’s pretty high in demand, so if you’ve been waiting for a chance to book an appointment with him, make sure you do it now!
Here’s a recent one from Eckel, from the lovely Conspiracy Inc. blog:
Eckel also has a new sketchbook on Gentleman’s Tattoo Flash, by the way. He didn’t post the name of it, but I’m guessing it’s this one here. The website’s previews are so tiny, but you can just make out how cool this book probably is:
Ryan Mason has also mentioned on his blog that he’s confirmed for the London Tattoo Convention. If you’re living here in the UK and you’ve been waiting for a chance to be tattooed by Ryan, this could be a good chance for you! He also says he may be at Conspiracy Inc. around the same time. He’ll be taking bookings for those very soon, so I’d suggest keeping up to date with his blog (or his Tumblr, according to his last post?).
And to finish this post, a recent one from Ryan, too:
