There are some feelings that you never forget. The nervous tension spinning in your stomach whilst the excited anticipation beats faster in your chest. Swimming through varying and conflicting emotions whilst gasping for every breath, on the brink of drowning. I remember all of the above when I was 18 years young, still a boy

The final post…this year.

Posted on 31st December, 2017

It happens the same time each year and yet somehow when it arrives it always comes as a shock. Like a predator in the periphery of our vision that pounces in the blink of an eye the New Year will dawn. In anticipation I have followed my usual ritual for the past few years where

“T’is the season” as they say. In the past few weeks I have been lucky enough to see the birth of my second daughter and experience all of the joys of fatherhood again. Some of which have been to see the way Marley has interacted and excelled the expectations I had of her as a

A.K.A Much made the journey from Spain to visit me here at UN1TY Tattoo, Shrewsbury to receive his tattoo. Having travelled all over the world myself to get tattooed I understand the commitment of time, energy and money invested in such a project.

Understanding the Subtleties

Posted on 22nd April, 2016
