he is the tattooist equivalent of brutality will previal, ridiculously bigged up because little kids love them.
Anthony Flemming is a fool and quite frankly a disgrace to his industry, exploiting his ability to take advantage of women. It is morally wrong and disgusting, it is a prime example of…
Joshua, let me tell you a few things about myself and my life, and maybe, just maybe, you will be a little less judgemental without ever having had any contact with me in anyway… Around 3 years ago I was just finishing 6th form studying art when I was offered an apprenticeship at my local and extremely reputable tattoo shop ‘World of Tattoos’. I wasn’t actually part of the ‘scene’ at all. I never had myspace and didn’t adhere to the normal ‘emo’ trend that seemed so part of the time. So really I was a normal guy with no fucking clue of what I wanted to do with my life, other than I wanted to draw…Not that that’s all I could do… I was predicted in my final A2 exams, 2 As and a B, so I could have quite easily gone to university and skipped this whole ‘fad’ you seem to talk about. Now my point is this… The ONLY reason I decided to do this was because I loved the environment I was thrust into when I was offered the apprenticeship. I was unsure what to do with my life and this seemed a great opportunity. I was incredibly lucky and grabbed this with both hands and didn’t fucking let go for one second. I don’t know if you understand how apprenticeships work within the tattoo world? Well let me tell you how mine went down… Firstly, you don’t get paid. Not one fucking penny, and talk about workload… I was here in the studio for a year unpaid every single day from 8.30 in the morning to some times 10pm at night… Over 12 hours every day, do you know how fucking hard that is? Let me ask you a question, do you really think I would have stood the test of time if I didn’t fucking adore this industry? Being here every second I had, coming in, even after having an asthma attack at 4 in the morning and not getting home until 8am. And I mean that’s not it… After I qualified the work load only got greater… the first two years of my tattooing career was sheer hard fucking work without recognition, and really, I didn’t want it as to be honest, when you are learning something new it doesn’t always work out the best. But fuck did I put my all into every tattoo, and made that tattoo with all the ability I had at the time. As the studio I work in is largely a custom shop in general, I had to draw every single night. Mostly staying up to 1/2/3 in the morning with bits of tracing paper and pencils scattered about my front room. This year will be my third year tattooing, I have a three year waiting list and have stopped taking on new customers, do you honestly believe that happened through luck? Do you not think, maybe, I have fucking worked my fucking arse off every day of my life to even make a dent in the industry? If you knew me in real life and didn’t pay attention to anons and little faggots online you would realise how much I actually fucking work, and love tattooing. If I was doing it to be ‘cool’ then I would be knocking out shite like most of the scene knob heads circulating on this and other horrific social networking websites. You also do realise you have completely and utterly invalidated everything you said within the post by referencing Akira…I mean I don’t want to bad mouth other tattooist and I don’t like to blow my own trumpet… but come on, are you seriously saying that dude is technically better than myself? To be honest… I think even he would agree with me. The other two are much of a muchness… If you wanted to make a point about a tattooist being technically better than myself then fuck… name some awesome artists, and yeah there are a fuck load out there… Tim hendricks, Robert Hernandez, Boris, Andy Engel, Jose Lopez, Uncle Allan, Eckel, just to name a few… And to touch upon seemingly your main point… Me using my position to take advantage of girls… Really…come on now. If I wanted an easy life I would have stayed in my shit band, worked one or two hours a day and have women all over me. It seems rather arse about face to work 12 hours a day just to get laid… My job has fuck all to do with it. You see hundreds of people without the base of tattooing on tumblr, posting a slightly out of focus dreamy shot of them selves, then 100 girls saying ohhhh I wish I could sit on his face. Etc, etc. And taking advantage of them… HA! really?! why and how would I take advantage of them? I’m 22, I’m male… If girls wanna fuck… then we are gunna fuck. That’s their prerogative and if you are honestly telling me you wouldn’t do the same if you were offered the opportunity, then nigga… You gay.
I think you have heard stories and browsed my personal tumblr and made such a massive fucking generalisation… In future you may want to bite your tongue with such subjects as work ethics. Especially when it comes to myself. Also to question my passion for tattooing is fucking unbelievable.
Have a good evening mate, maybe next time don’t be such a fucking cunt.
I’ve not posted on here in a while so I thought I should!
I’ve only really been posting on my drawing blog for the past couple of weeks now, but I’ve been more motivated than ever to draw and try and get where I want to be. I’ve even put drawing before computer games for the first time ever so definite progress!
My girl’s been on her first Nursing placement for the past nearly 4 weeks and she’s making me so proud every day, I think it’s amazing the things she’s been able to do in that short time! So I’m super proud and I’ve got to see her quite alot this year so far which makes me verrry happy. I feel at my best with her and I’ve never been happier ^_^
So happy, motivated and very much in love. Gotta say overall, every day gets better and better as I get closer and closer to living my ideal life!
Staying at Corey’s for 2 nights has made it for me, I love being there watching films, having pizza, going to the big Asda (Driff shops suck, this is a big deal!) and talking all night and tryna figure out what every noise the house makes was and getting to stay in her bed with her. I got to give her a belated Christmas present too and her reaction couldn’t have been better :)
I took my sisters to Build-a-Bear too to spend the vouchers Corey got them for Christmas, watching them get embarrassed at the whole routine they get put through when you’ve gotta put the heart in the bear was hilarious and the fact they didn’t go mental when it came to getting accessories for them was pretty amazing for kids nowadays!
So happy right now! She’s most definitely a keeper and my sisters are awesome <3!
A couple of weeks ago I enjoyed a week and a half off work and went to Leeds festival with my girl and loads of her friends who are rad and always make me feel a part of their group.
It rained, and rained, and rained some more and I’ve suffered slightly with manflu from that since but that didn’t stop us seeing so many bands and having a rad time. It was good to enjoy bands I wouldn’t usually go out of my way to listen to/haven’t listened to for a long time. I can’t say I like 30 Seconds To Mars too much, and every time Jared Leto spoke, scenes from American Psycho were what I heard but they were so good live. Same with My Chemical Romance who I haven’t listened to in a long time but seeing them play I’m Not Okay and singing along like I was still 14 felt like I could die happy at any given time haha. I’m not gonna bother with much detail as to who I saw because there’s too many and I always forget loads but not one band/comedian/Henry Rollins disappointed.
All Corey’s friends are rad and sitting up with Tim and Chappers til stupid times pretty much every night was hilarious and I’m pretty sure needs to happen again soon haha. And I think what made it for me was being able to spend 5 days living in a tent with her and doing loads together and falling for her so much more just like last time we were there. Even in all the rain and wind and cold, she just makes me happy and we had such a laugh and I’m certain I’ll never forget it. I love her and I loved all that time with her. I won’t miss the weather and the mud, but I miss the time there and have so many good memories that’ll keep me happy always.
