Jacqui Moore, a very tattooed woman and her partner Curly

On the 28th July 2011 I wrote about Jacqui Moore from Oxford, following a big article about her in the Daily Mail.  Since then she has had even more ink, completing her legs and I think adding some to her face.  Her partner, Curly is a well known tattoo artist in Oxford.  Here is a rather striking photo of them somewhat in the style of Norman Rockwell, the famous American artist  Truly a 21st century image of a couple.  The photos are by Mark Leaver, except the image of Jacqui being tattooed on her face, which belongs to an earlier period..

My tattoos as video pop art - Oritse Williams of JLS.

Over a year ago I was an extra in a pop video I thought was for JLS.  In the end it seems to have been used for just one member of that band, Oritse Williams He is not signed to any label, yet his video has been viewed by over sixty thousand people so far.  You can take a look at it.

The director of the video is Drew Cox of Slanted Eyes.  He has created the image here by  transposing a woman diving into water onto my image.  I think it is eye catching and rather flattering to me.  Every time I look at his photo of me I wish the work on my neck and face were permanent like everything else I have tattooed on my body.

I hope this year he will make a film of my tattoo art.  It will be quite something if it gets made.
