To most, getting inked isn’t just an unfortunate incident that happens when changing the cartridge on a photocopier or finding a leaky pen in the bottom of your bag. Tattoos have fast become a form of expression with a cult following that’s not just full of bikers and sailors but people from all walks of life. They can still raise a few eyebrows and sometimes cause a few unfortunate giggles but they should never be taken lightly.
Is it really worth getting a Miley Cyrus portait tattooed on your arm in the hopes of receiving a tweet from her? Do you really want those Chinese characters you didn’t get translated first? And is it really worth going down to a random tattoo parlour with no credentials to honour your wife? Hopefully the answer to all of those questions is no, so if you are looking to get a new piece of art added to your body, then we have a way you could be inked by the best of the best at The Other Art Fair (April 25-28).
We’re giving you the opportunity to win a session (including consultation and inking) with in-demand tattooist Mo Coppoletta for free!
