    Our (and Toni and Colin's) wedding photographer had some done by Thai monks when she renewed her wedding vows, she's on Facebook here and I'm sure she'd give you details on it all if you drop her a message, she's super friendly

    Name rings a bell but can't picture a face.
    There was a forum for these things kicking about in here a while ago but I can't remember what it was (or I'm imagining it) All I've found so far are really touristy ones that are either really shoddy or use the same needle for everyone and no way am I am going there! I know exactly what I want so guess I'll just keep searching!

    There's a really nice tattoo forum over at www.lastsparrowtattoo.com Lyssa, mostly American people I think but maybe someone there will be able to help you?

    Another 'can anyone help?' question. My partner wants to celebrate his achieving sensai by getting his club's japanese script tattooed. We love Joey Pang's style, so the ink looks literally brushed on, and the guys at temple tattoo. We're willing to save and travel to HK, but I wondered if anyone knew of someone closer to home? UK/Europe?

    This is the inspiration http://tattootemple.hk/joey-pang-tattoo-temple#

    Just over a year ago I got my first tattoo on my left ankle, I love it and I'm now pondering my next one. The kitty stands for my pet cat Iris (as well as those who have passed), I love the minimalistic style of this tattoo and want to continue it for a tattoo on my right ankle... but am thinking that the idea might sound a bit stupid. Almost two years ago I lost my darling pet bunny - her registered name was Phoenix Rising, I was thinking of getting a tattoo of a rabbit to memorialise her but am now thinking of using the idea of a phoenix, maybe with the tail doing down onto my foot... with a little black/grey bunny hiding somewhere in there.
    Am I silly for having an idea like this?
    Current - 3 x L & R lobe, R nostril, L Industrial

    Her work's amazing. I'm looking at Ema Sweeney in Glasgow as another option - any experiences there? She also does ahmayzing dot work, so might sneak myself in there too...
