Paul has moved house and needs a plumber. But that isn’t what this post is about.

So Paul had a little while off to move and get his lovely family settled in. What a guy! He also makes nice tattoos too. Canny that.

For anybody who doesn’t know Paul’s work….where have you been? Locked in a box? No? Oh Ok! Have a look below then…for those of you who ARE familiar….you can look too, I will allow it ;)

Love the last paint, Hopefully it will be his new bizniz card. Fancy.

If you wanna see more of Greg’s stuff gan have a look on Instagram

Dave has been killin’ it since he joined the shop (that’s slang for doing really good and that)

We are really happy to have Dave at the shop, he’s proved himself already as super dedicated as well a talented little squirrel. He has been busy tatty-zappin’ everybody he can get his geordie mitts on as well as painting flash upon flash upon flash.

Lets have a geegs at what this marra has been up to? Gannon’ then!

Thats A LOT to look at huh?! I warned you…well kinda….As always you can email the shop (cockasnook@hotmail.com) with ideas for Dave if you want a tattoo from him and REMEMBER lots of the stuff on the flash sheets are available to tattoo. If you want you can can follow him too (not down the street) on InSTa!

All you need for this card trick is a bucket of water a mop, and some joyous end of day craic.

Video

I’m not sure if any of you guys are aware but our Greg LOVES magic and card tricks (he loves these so much I think he should Marry the magic circle) He also LOVES practical jokes and thats why nobody in the shop likes him (PURE JOKES, we love him!)

Now, this practical joke worked on Abbie but it turns out that our Dave is too tall for MAGIC…..Well for this Joke anyway.

So really, NOTHING at all happens in this video except, Greg left a little red in the face and Dave was bone dry.

The End.

canny story that.

Dan can Hartley wait to tattoo you. See what I did there?

As per usual Dan Hartley has been busy as a little Geordie bee. Im going to delight you all now with a small sample of the best bits. (Think Rocky montage without the Balboa part)

Dan’s lines are so clean, makes me feel a bit sick. Elbows and knees are a tough crowd but he doesn’t scare easily.

Dan has also been painting and organising guest spots. BOOM!

As always, if you like anything you see, have a sweet idea for a new tattoo or just want to send love emails cockasnook@hotmail.com or you can follow him here!

Smell you later you internetagators

Getting back into the SWING of things (it’s a clever a title, if you keep reading… I promise!)

Kerry-Anne has been back at work a few weeks now, she’s slowly settling in and putting word out thats she’s back and she means business. She has set herself up in the back room with Abbie where it’s nice and quiet (except for the mellow hum of menstrual cycles aligning) The Gal pad is complete with cushions, candles and lots of dead things…..OBVIOUSLY?! Oh and for the record, girls RULE and boys DROOL.

Lets have a geegs (more Geordie there) at what she has been doing.
You can always stalk her here (not really but you can follow her in a non stalky way!)

First full tattoo after she was back was this wee palm Tree, it was based on The Wytches album artwork!

Canny.

Image

She also did some jazzy butterflies coming out of a genie lamp.

Image

Now this is where that joke from the title came from…..trapeze artists SWINGING from a hot air balloon (yes it’s a tenuois link, but it works…kind of)

Image

Who likes Gaslamp Athem?! Kezza’s customer thats who! He got the piece below in tribute to ‘em. OOOOOH.

Image

She also made an extra drawing so Tom could choose which one he preferred, this one below is now up for grabs <3

Image

You can get a quote for this @cockasnook@hotmail.com (would look super sweet on a forearm or shin)

Kerry-Anne also likes doing cover-ups, she’s had two short sessions on Matty’s arm to cover two names and a Celtic cross….such a shame to see them go…..he was so sad in fact that he gave her a bottle of wine. That’s two presents in as many weeks. She has special customers <3

Image

Image

So as we bid adieu to the snazzy cross, we bid adieu to you, and you, and you….

Tara!
