When I have something I want to add here on OV it generally takes me a few days to gird up the motivation to get it online. Sometimes longer if there’s something good playing at the local cinema. I get distracted, with my attention space somewhere in the ‘ferret’ range on the best of days.
When Cian at Swallows & Daggers asked me to make a list of Tattooers to watch in 2015 and gave me a full week to get it written, I had it done in under ten minutes. I’m sure there’s a valuable life lesson in there somewhere.
My five to watch list has two artists I’ve known for over 20 years, three who’ve tattooed me and two younger fellas that are putting out good honest tattoos. I wish I would have had more room for honorable mentions- there’s just so many amazing people out there putting on good tattoos that it’s really a great time for people looking to get quality work.
