  1. Someone needs to hook granny up with some clipcord sleeves, machine bags, nitrile gloves and a work station that isn’t totally porous. They should also let her know that ink bottles are ‘sposta chill out on the contaminated bib.

    Other than that, very cool.

  2. “does no one else find it weird that she doesn’t have a lot of work, herself being a tattooist?”

    I was tattooed by a guy with no visible tattoos at all . . that’s the way he liked it.

  3. Looks like it could be someone’s house. I’m from Norfolk, I was quite pleased to see it mentioned here :P Although my grandma should win the title of coolest granny ever, she has a Playstation 2 and everything :)

  4. Max- I don’t think its strange for a tattoo artist to be untattoed. I have gotten some of my best work from an artist who is not extensively tattooed. They are creative in the work they put on others’ bodies, but don’t necessarily feel the need to express that same type of creativity on their own bodies.

  5. Wish that was my Nan,,, Well She Lives In The Same Part Of The Country… Norfolk Is Hardcore…

    and Alan Partridge…
