Tattooing is not my job it is my vocation/calling
(How lucky am I)
I started Tattooing professionally in 1975.
I have worked all over the Uk, Europe, Middle East, Africa and Scandinavia..
The last 22yrs I have been in Holland in my own shops..but 1st worked in A'dam.
I came back to Uk to retire but am unable to..Tattooing is our life..
I have won awards world wide but my favorite was the last A'dam convention in 1994.
When it was still in Hanks hands and truly international.
I entered a Greg Irons/Jack Rudy style tribute... Jack was judging..
For the real Tattoo fans my wife (together since 1984)
And I have stories galore..having met some of the greatest names of Tattooing.
We have lived a hedonist lifestyle with absolutely no kids to pay for..
So are lives till now have been pretty great
And it appears to be getting even better all the time
