At the beginning of this month we ran a little April Fools Day competition. That little competition ended up becoming pretty big, with tons of you sharing pictures of your tattoo disasters in return for the chance to win a cover-up, courtesy of one of our artists.

Sean’s ‘Freaky Teddy Bear’ Winner of our #coveritupcomp
In the end we decided that Sean Holt‘s freaky teddy bear was the most atrocious ink of the lot, so each of our artists designed a cover-up for him to choose from. Sean decided that although things with his original bear hadn’t quite gone to plan, he’d like another chance to make it work; so when he saw Loz’s grown up and considerably more artistic version, it was only ever gonna go one way.

April Fools, nah … That Tattoo Rules
So, after 100’s of entries, 5 designs, 1 stencil, and 7 hours in studio, Sean’s freaky teddy bear is no more.

If you have some old and unwanted ink, there is no better time to get the work done, as all our artists currently have 20% off their usual rate. Come and speak to us and we’ll get it sorted out for you. Check out our artist portfolio
