Just dropping an update as I am now done guesting at Tattoo 13.

The last three months I’ve had a great time piercing at Tattoo 13 as a Guest Piercer, covering for one of the piercers during COVID.

It was so much fun returning to piercing in a busy studio in the heart of the WestEnd. Especially during such an unprecedented and unpredictable year!!

Thank you to all of you who came out and kept me busy!

Also a massive thank you to Tattoo 13 for having me. It was a pleasure and I’m sure I’ll see you again somewhen in the future.

All Love. XIII

Septum

Emily’s Septum Piercing

Emily had dropped in to Tattoo 13 a few weeks before for a Nipple piercing and was so happy with it that she returned for a Septum piercing.

As ever, thank you for your continued trust in doing what I do. It’s been real fun returning to piercing, something I will always love doing.

I just wanted to take an opportunity to offer a wider range heart felt thank you to everyone I met over the many years, body piercing.

From everyone I worked with, learned from, fellow body piercers and tattoo artists…

There are too many people to thank individually, but you all know who you are.

To each and everyone that I ever pierced, hundreds if not thousands of you after working full time, five or six days a week at times; over eight years. Thank you for your trust and your support.

For that inspired me to be the best I could, at times leaving it all in the studio.

Working in a well established studio Shiva and helping it grow even bigger during my time is something I am proud of, as much as I was in helping out at the newly opened 2nd Skin.

You all left an impression and made piercing a pleasure and an incredible joy.

There is only so long you can do something on repetition, before you become the definition of madness. Before something starts to define you.

I had other opportunities to work in other studios both in London and in other countries. Perhaps one day a touring guest spot…

Never say never, but I am pretty thankful for what piercing gave me; in return for all those needles. If my needles were my arrows then I went to war for you people!

Thank you!

It was a blast! A lot of hard work and dedication, it was truly an honour and a privilege.

Treat each other as you yourself, would like to be treated. That can take you at least half the way in life…

All Love.

Rock n’ Roll…
