Default Miami Ink Guest Spot in Scotland

"Love Hate Tattoo in Edinburgh has some BIG news....

From July 15th to July 24th this year, we will have three of the Miami Ink artists visiting our studio and doing tattoos. Chris Garver, Darren Brass and James Hamilton will be tattooing and will be accompanied by managers Guy Sahar and Lee Rodriguez.



Chris Garver is widely considered to be among the best tattoo artists in the world, with a celebrity-studded list of private clients. Darren Brass has a background in graffiti-style design work and the show has given Brass a great opportunity to showcase his talent for body art. James Hamilton started off as Ami James' first tattoo apprentice and now works full time at the Miami Beach shop.


Also, we will be hosting an exclusive VIP party for our guests from Miami Ink, which is to be held on Friday 18th July at Cargo in Fountainbridge. Attendance will be strictly by invitation only."

They will be taking bookings- email: lovehate_tattoos@yahoo.com with your designs which they will forward on to the artists. I believe they will be rolling with smallish designs only, to accomodate as many clients as possible.

More on VIP tickets as I get the info
small tattoos generate as much capital as possible. yet more money-inspired tattooing. chris garver is a great tattooist but fuck miami ink.

I know a lot of people think highly of the artists on Miami Ink, but it's very rare I see anything on there that I think is that great

Garver has done some good Japanese stuff...he keeps it quite traditional unlike a lot of American guys who seem to go a bit cartoony...

Possibly because to even get on the show you have to go through an x-factor type selection process, the producers pick the best stories, not the best tattoos.

I feel told off now!

Thing is that Garver can still hold his own in Japanese style against the best Brits and that really does say a lot...I am moving to Canada and everyone there seems to do Jap work + other stuff and it is achingly mediocre

Luckily there is Horitomo in San Jose - he rules - apprenticeship with Sabado and Horiyoshi III - awesome
