Zu den Favoriten hinzufügen

Skin Deep has long been the UKs best selling tattoo magazine - and just because we're having fun for 13 issues a year (that's once every 4 weeks) doesn't mean we're not taking it very seriously indeed. Each issue we publish profiles, interviews and features with the leading tattooists and tattoo artists working in the world today together with exciting new talent. Alongside of this, we focus on the tattoo lifestyle and all it contains, coverage from the international convention scene, art features from those who embrace the tattoo ethic or find inspiration within it, reader profiles, news, reviews, competitions, letters and every issue also comes with a free supplement.

punch and judy book club

This last month or so, I’ve read a couple of books that got me thinking. One is called The Perfume Burned His Eyes, the other, Daisy Jones and the Six. Perfume is about a teenager that moves into an apartment block where one of his neighbours is Lou Reed. As the months mount up behind them, they form a weird as hell relationship in which not a whole lot goes according to plan. I guess at its source, it’s just a book about the relationship between a regular kid and a damaged rock star. If you’re into trivia, it’s written by the guy who played Christopher Moltisanti in The Sopranos—Michael Imperioli. It’s also a book that’s devilishly hard to get hold of. Conversely, Daisy Jones and the Six has seen a fair…

this one’s for all the losers

A few months back now, on a Saturday in May, I grabbed my paddle and willingly sailed my way off motherhood island for the day (brushed my teeth and straightened my hair and wore make-up and EVERYTHING… this was kind of a big deal). This groundbreaking first solo outing with myself since giving birth saw me pootle on down to Ally Pally and re-enter the realm of tattooing by witnessing all that our Great British Tattoo Show had to offer. My day-long voyage into the real world was made all the more thrilling as I was given the opportunity to be on the judging panel for our awards ceremony on Saturday. Awards are super exciting. Seeing the expressions surface on tattooer and tattooed as their work is chosen sets the room alight.…

TAT & CHAT Tat and Chat is a non-profit charity event set up at Tattoo UK Uxbridge for one day in October this year. On October 11th they will welcome all who are able to get down to the studio to get themselves tattooed for a fraction of their usual pricing which will ALL go to the charity, CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably). The Campaign Against Living Miserably is leading a movement against male suicide, the single biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK. Not long ago, Alf Rewin, a dear friend to members of Tattoo UK tragically took his own life which shocked everyone he knew. In his memory, Tattoo UK have decided to set up Tat and Chat. Their goal? To raise as much money for the cause as possible…

Charlie Clift Photographer “Diving into the lives of the many forces members and veterans I photographed was an honour. It wasn’t always easy hearing the stories these people told, but they were always open and friendly with me. Their stories are important and I was eager to do everything I could to help tell them. The project has changed my perception of remembrance completely - it doesn’t have to be done in silence on a sombre Sunday, people can remember in a million different ways. Some of the people I photographed have run ultra-marathons to commemorate their friends, some have set up charities, many continue serving their country with pride. They all remember those they’ve lost nearly every day they live. Getting tattoos of their friend’s names inked into their skin…

EvolvedBodyStudio.com • @james_crader Regardless of what the poet Philip Larkin might have told you, there were times when our parents did get it right. Like in the case of a young James Crader, graduating from college with a degree in Interpersonal Communications and a minor in Comparative Religion, not having a clue who or what he wanted to be in life—but good ol’ Mom had him pegged. “She never saw me as a sit-behind-a-desk type and suggested I be a Yoga Teacher or something,” he tells me. “So I did. I did that for a number of years and also studied Traditional Thai Massage. I thought I would work exclusively with upper echelon athletes mixing up and offering those modalities, and I did that for a while.” Until, that was, he was pointed in a…

vegan studios

The vegan lifestyle is becoming increasingly important to tattooing as each month goes by. With many of our readers, tattooers and house staff being committed to it—and the internet not particularly being much help when it comes to finding a great studio you can count on—it would be remiss of us not to step in and provide some kind of road map. What you’ll find on this advertising page are studios we have looked carefully at, where those needs will be catered for by artists and studio owners who care about the necessary requirements to be sure you’re living exactly the life you want to. Hopefully, the simple concepts behind vegan tattooing will expand at an exponential level until it becomes the norm because there’s no reason for it not…
