Marked Up in Knowle West, Bristol
Today I was in Knowle West, an area of Bristol that suffers from severe economic and social deprivation. I was tired and need a pee. I spotted a tattoo studio and headed there. As soon as I lift my shirt it is immediately evident I belong to that great club of the tattooed and have immediate entry to any studio I visit and am regarded as a friend.
One of the artists working there was young Tim. He was inking a sleeve for Ross, which can be seen below. The top of his arm is just in outline now.
Tim is a new young artist and will be interesting to see where his career takes him.
