Having Tattoos can increase your chances of getting hired? | YAYO Familia Tattoo Aftercare 0

Not too long ago we talked about tattoos in the workplace, and how having visible tattoos on your body (not just hands, neck, face), but other places that are technically easy to cover can have a negative impact on how you're viewed whilst at work, and at job interviews for potential work.  Unfortunately in this day and age tattoos are still somewhat stigmatised, especially when it comes to 'workplace professionalism', and tattoos are still wrongly discriminated against.  However, an article I recently read actually concludes that in some cases, tattoos can be a very good thing when it comes to job interviews and how you're viewed in the workplace!

Sensational Superbowl Tattoos | Buy Dermalize Pro Tattoo Film online 0

We may be UK based, but that doesn't stop us from appreciating Superbowl Season! Whether you're a fan or not, you can't ignore the Superbowl mania that'll be taking over our TV screens this Sunday!  The NFL is absolutely huge in America, and although it's not as big in the UK, in the past few years it's made a massive impact in England, especially with Jacksonville Jaguars regularly playing home games in London, so today I wanted to have a look at some really cool NFL tattoos - seeing as it's quite fitting with this weekend's events!

The best time of year to get tattooed? | Buy Tattoo Goo online 0

People seem really keen on getting new tattoos in the summer months.  Naturally, we wear less clothing in summer as it's hot and sunny (although this is questionable when it comes to the North of England!). Although it's the perfect opportunity to show off your new work, in reality, summer really isn't the best time to be getting tattooed! Of course, it's a bit of a sweeping statement to say that you absolutely should not get tattooed in summer whatsoever, but if you do, it's important to take extra precautions to ensure your tattoo is well looked after - as summer can be a pretty grave time for the healing process of a new tattoo. 

Dangerously good Dinosaur tattoos! | Buy Radiant Tattoo Ink online 0

I absolutely love Dinosaurs.  Naturally, I've never had the chance to encounter a real one, but I really enjoy checking out the pre-historic section of my local museum to have a look at some of the ancient fossils on display, and life-like dinosaur statues (Stegosaurus is my favourite!). I used to dabble in a bit of archaeology myself, so I've always found anything dinosaur-related to be really interesting. Unfortunately, the dinosaur days are over, but some people have taken their love for dinosaurs to the next level with some really cool dinosaur tattoos!

Sponsored Artist appreciation - Ben Carlisle | Cheyenne Tattoo Machines 0

At Magnum Tattoo Supplies, we have a lot of exceptionally talented tattoo artists on our sponsored artist pro team, each one with a unique and brilliant style, and today we wanted to talk about one of the artists who's really killing it in the tattoo industry at the moment.  Ben Carlisle, who works at Devil in the Detail, Stoke-on-Trent has been one of our sponsored artists for almost a year now, and we're really glad to have joined forces with him!  Ben specialises in hyper-realism, and the majority of his work is really colourful and detailed, and he has a knack for creating some incredible cartoon and Disney themed pieces.  His work is literally breathtaking, aso we wanted to take a look at some of his more recent creations.

Cool Coverups | Tattoo Ink Colour Sets Supplier UK 0

Ever had a tattoo that you've later come to regret?  I know I certainly have, and thankfully my brilliant tattoo artist was able to sort it out for me.  As I've discussed in previous posts, I have a couple more that I'd like to get rid of, however after chatting with my tattoo artist about this, he's insisted that laser is the only way, due to the size of the tattoo, and depth of the colours (unless I wanted to completely black out my feet, which didn't seem too appealing to me!)

For many, cover up tattoos are the go-to solution for when they have a tattoo that they deeply regret.  For some, it's not so much that they regret the tattoo - the content might be cool, but the composition may be letting it down, and covering it up with a new and improved piece is a great option.
