My beautiful new iPhone case, by Rachel McCarthy

I bought this lovely iPhone case from the Brighton Tattoo Convention last weekend. The lovely Rachel McCarthy, from Modern Body Art, makes them and she will make a unique one for you if you order one. She sells lots of other craft-type things and prints, too. Of course her tattoos are amazing and she is another person to add to my list of people I would like to get tattooed by.

Get your tat out

Convention Special – I spotted these beautiful tattoos yesterday at the Brighton Tattoo Convention.

This lovely lady was at the Forever True Tattoo stand.

I saw this girl and her intricate and delicate tattoo a couple of times in the crowds at the convention. I finally tracked her down at the Tattoo Workshop stand and managed to get this gorgeous picture. The tattoo is by Saira Hunjan.

Delicate and beautiful - just the outline now, but some colour will be added in the next sitting.

Getting excited about the Brighton Tattoo Convention

brighton_poster_2012

I attended the Brighton Tattoo Convention in 2010 and I absolutely loved it – I was supposed to attend last year too, but due to unforeseen circumstances I was unable to (see the day of the phantom tweet).

The 2010 Brighton Convention was my first ever tattoo convention – I was a little younger and a little less tattooed, so I attended with apprehension. In fact, it doesn’t matter if you’re covered head to toe in ink or never intend to get tattooed, the Brighton Tattoo Convention welcomes all who are there to appreciate the art form. Although, this year I can’t wait to show off the ink I have collected throughout 2011…

See the beautiful photos from the 2010 Convention. This year I will be attending the convention with a little more experience and the help of Papercut Pictures, so I will be able to show you lots more photos and maybe a little film, too…

Maybe see some of you there?

Happy Birthday Th’ink

Happy Birthday blog.

I realised last night that my blog is now just over a year old and I let the occasion slip by without so much as a mention. So,  I would like to use this post to celebrate and thank all of you, my readers, for your support and comments over the past year. When I started this blog I didn’t think for a moment that I would meet so many inspiring people and receive so many encouraging comments. I have also been shortlisted to win an award from Cosmopolitan.

What a first year! Let’s hope the next is just as successful…

Here is a small selection of photos from Th’ink’s first amazing year…
