We’ve changed around our opening hours quite a lot recently, and unless you’re good with keeping up with these kinds of things we understand that it may be a little confusing! Thankfully, it’s quite easy to find any new changes to the shop’s hours or anything similar, by either clicking here or on the ‘Studio News’ link to your right. The latest is that, from Tuesday, we will be open seven days a week, between 12 and 8. Since this is very new, we have plenty of space to tattoo you, especially between 6-8, though please bear in mind spaces will still go quite quickly! Book in as much advance as you can to avoid any disappointment.
Also, while we’re on a similar subject, if you have any ongoing work with Ian that you’ve had for quite a while, we’d encourage you to book in as soon as possible. Ian wants to focus on newer work over the next year, and if you’ve been sitting with a load of lines on your arm for a year, it’s been too long. Get your skates on!
Now for the good stuff: we have a new floor manager! The brilliant Jonny Bates will be here from Tuesday, and we can’t wait for him to get here. Thanks to everyone who applied!
Hot on Jonny’s heels will be Lewis Mckechnie, who will be tattooing at the shop full time as soon as he’s finished a few bits and pieces up in Scotland. He’s a fantastic tattooer, and we also can’t wait for him to come down! We’ll let you know as soon as he’s here so that you can get yourself booked in for something great.
Some of you guys may remember these prints that Ian took to Brighton not too long ago. We still have some of these at the shop, if anyone would like to come in for one! Feel free to pop in any time next week, and we’ll see which ones we still have available for you to get your hands on!
Speaking of Ian, here is some work from him this week:
Hayley also came in this week for a day of painting for Eli Falconette’s The Great Unknown flash book. You can read more about her and Ian’s participation in this here, but here’s a sneak preview of what she got up to. Hayley is still on her maternity leave, but we’ll still post up her paintings whenever she has time to do them!
Gav has some space next week, which we recommend you taking advantage of. He’s been hard at work all week, with great tattoos and paintings coming out of his ears. If you’d like to book in, feel free to pop down any time to sort it all out! Here’s some work from him this week:
Lauren also should have some space free next week, which, again, you should take advantage of! She has lots of walk up designs ready to go, too, if you’re the spontaneous type. Here’s some work from her this week:
This week has been ridiculously busy, and we’ve had a lot of new changes, but things are only just getting started here at Inkslingers. Thanks for everyone’s support so far! We’ll see you all next week!
