Post by lcfmademedoit » 30 May 2008, 14:50

i been getting some work done on a 3 quarter sleeve over the past few months.

I can put up a pic of a part of it for now, it's all based on mayan statues and the like and the guy who's been doing it is silly good.

Getting it all done at frith street tattoos in soho by a polish guy called piotrek.

It looks more like apainting than a tattoo aswell which is all good.

Yeh i've got the outline done to the inner arm part of it, which was disgusting pain by the way.

I'll whack up another pic after my next session next friday aswell

If anyone wants to use piotrek i'll give them his nuber cos he's bare wizard.

My guitarist G just finished his full sleeve by him aswell...

That shit looks fuckin' ace fella!
Might have to look into getting my back done there.
What's the prices like up there? How much are we talking per hour or does he charge by design?

He is pretty funny.

He charges 80 an hour if your getting loads done but he usually knocks off an hour if your there for 4 hours or more cos he's safe.

Did you ever enquire in Frith Street boyo?

I've had a few more sessions done now and think i'm maybe 2 away from finishing my 3 quarter sleeve.

It's looking pretty wizard, i'll upload some pics when i can muster up enough effort.

That's pretty. I love the Orange. You don't really see that much Orange on tatts, or maybe you do and I'm just not looking in the right places. Either way, it's wicked. :thumb:

Looks sick Carlos. I'm booked in with woody to get my leg sleeved, below the knee, in January. Wouldn't mind checking out Frith Street at some point though. That guy looks pretty talented. It's definitely worth paying the extra buck to get a decent tattooist I think.
Regards,

Jim

Same as Woody then. I managed to blag a cancellation, otherwise I'd be waiting till June. Kinda sucks though as I'll be needing several visits. Probably take a year to get finished. 400 quid a day he charges. Pretty steep, although I'd say that's pretty fair for a custom job from someone of Woody's reputation.
Regards,

Jim

Well piotrek is all booked up till january it looks like, he's got some bookings after then but don't think he's fully booked up so is worth giving them a visit.

He's meant to charge 90 an hour but most of the time i've been there for a 4 hour session he'll charge between 150-200 which is quite a snazzy saving.

Probably because i say im in a band he instantly assumes i make fuck all money, which is true anyways so works out well!

I've not properly looked at the other artists work at the place but im assuming there all pretty funkin good aswell.
