Getting to know you
So, I said this in the newbie thread;

"RE: The other thread about it being a bit dead... maybe we should have a new Introduction thread, but for everyone including the regulars? A lot of people may already know each other so it may seem pointless, but there's people on here I have chatted with a bit and enjoyed a conversation that I know naff all about! Just a brief kinda name/where you're from/what you do/interests outside of tattooing etc?"

So here it is... I'll start

I'm Simon, 25 and originally from Cornwall, but have lived in Cardiff, Newport and currently reside in lovely Bristol, but am soon to be moving back to Newquay to seek an apprenticeship. I have a girlfriend, Justine, who posts here sometimes as Joote and we've been together almost 3 years. We have two cats called Morrissey and Dahlia and both work in life insurance at present [boring!]. Favourite bands are The Smiths/Morrissey, AFI and Idlewild.

Fire away!

Hi there....

I am Dee the advertising manager for Skin Deep Magazine, people dont like it when I call as I want their money but sometimes I do call just to chat, I like to chat... sometimes too much as my boss would say!!!

I actually am currently tattoo free, its really hard for me to chose what I want and where I want it, as I see and speak to alot of artists everyday who are amazing at what they do and what they produce. If any of you want to help me with guidance or free tattoos then just let me know ;)

Dont judge me for not being tattooed though as I love this industry just as much as someone who has 1,2 or 10 tattoos!!!

Anyway must dash as I really should not be on here as have a show guide to prepare!!

:) x

I'll be Mick then or as my friends call me "can I borrow" I am loud mouthed and self opinionated when need arises, but warm and cuddly for the most part. I live in the sunny Midlands but would rather be elsewhere most of the time, California springs to mind. I am married and have two tattoo studios, soon to be three. I have three kids all grown and flown, these will not be added to as they cost too much. Three granddaughters who will no doubt be added to causing further depletion of financial resources, especially at Christmas. Hobby's are drawing, photography, smashing out speed metal on the ESP, shooting anything I can cook and American trucks. I have two cats and two English Springer Spaniels who make me smile every day.

Hi I'm Stuart... I run a publishing and events company, which includes this lovely forum. I love what I do and it's all on here if you are interested

I'm 42 (I think)... have two boys (10 & 12)... 5 Chickens, 2 Pigmy Goats (James & George), A Royal Python (Basil), Bearded Dragon (Dragoon) loads of fish and a Tortoise (Turbo).

Music choice is really varied from Crosby, Stills & Nash to System of a Down.

Tattoo wise, I have a half B&G sleeve by Woody and another half sleeve planned when time allows and I decide on an artist (I'm a fussy bugger!).

I love red wine, chocolate, travel, gadget, fast cars and a challenge! :beer:

MonkeyChick 26-11-2009 02:22 PM

Hellooooooo :)

I'm Sam, 34 :eek: and I work in a backpacker hostel as accommodation manager.

I'm from London but moved to Cardiff a few years ago to live with Brim. I blame this forum wholly for this as this is where I "met" him :o

We have three cats and I regularly drop hints about marriage and kids :D

This is us....

Ooh, and I love cakes too :party:

Favourite band - Megadeth

Megadeth are awesome, really annoyed I didn't pull my finger out and see them with Judas Priest earlier this year, and I used to work in a foundry back in Cornwall... hard work for a little guy like me, especially in the summer in your massive fireproof overalls!

What a hunk that man is!

I remember you from Blue Bana when I was living in Wales - I always used to apply for jobs there and get turned down :(

Slybacon 26-11-2009 02:30 PM

I'm Graeme (Cunningham, hence Slybacon). I'm 30 years old. I live in Leith, Edinburgh with my girlfriend Kay and my cat Melvin. I currently work for Johnston Press, in both ad setting and the graphics section for the Scotsman. As of the 7th of January I will also be starting a tattoo apprenticeship.

A lot of my time has been spent involved with the diy hardcore scene for about ten years, playing in bands and putting on shows in Edinburgh (currently as part Cold Dead Hands Collective). I also play bass in a band called Lords of Bastard.

I hate football.
