That C word

Yes, C******** is only a few days over 5 weeks away, the High street is heaving already, buzzing with shoppers. Still you can avoid the crowds and start your Xmas shopping now. We have just added a few new things for you just in time for Christmas. We have some pretty vintage pocket watch necklaces, a few rings and we will add some fabulous body jewellery before the weekend is over. You will find amazing Belly Bars and the brand new magnetic microdermal dangles will be making their UK debut on our site!  All our jewellery comes in a lovely black organza gift bag, as usual.

Our Liquor Brand toiletry bags are only £10.00 which makes them a perfect stocking filler or secret santa. We have a lot of new designs and they will be up on the shop in the next couple of days as well.

Our new dealings with the Metal Mafia

We have a new business connection in NYC and they have convinced us to start a new line of body jewellery. It is very small for the moment and pieces are handpicked. So here we are, eagerly awaiting to take delivery of our shipment from Metal Mafia, NYC. Rock'n'Rouge will be one of the very first UK shops to carry a brand new type of microdermal jewellery, and it is a very clever little piece as well. They are magnetic dangles. When I saw them, I wondered how they worked because microdermal anchors aren't magnetic. But our lovely Metal Mafia contact quickly shed some light on the md dangles situation. The dangles consist of a magnetic head, which screws into your microdermal anchor, and the jewellery itself attaches to the head. It always hangs the right way down and should it get caught and pulled, it will simply come off and leave your piercing untouched.

We have selected a few pieces for you. Here's a sneak preview:

Anchor dangle with clear stone
Angel Wings with clear stone

Heart shaped lock
Cherries in red and pink

Small skull and crossbones

Sparrow and clear stone

Colourful cupcake dangle

Depending on the popularity of the dangles we might also introduce the magnetic microdermal tops which makes changing tops really quick and easy. No need to unscrew and change, simply swap the tops. The other advantage those new magnetic tops have is to preserve the tread inside the post. 

We also have some dangly belly bars coming, also from Metal Mafia, so here's a taste of what's going to be available soon.

Fang Banger belly ring. Ideal for the True Blood devotee.

A moustache for your belly! 

More will come soon, and will be added to the shop! Otherwise, come and pick them up in person at the London Tattoo Convention next weekend, we will be there waiting for you!

September and the things that it brings

Seeing as I was born in September, I got accustomed to getting new things and surprises just around this time of year. So here, I am sharing this tradition and letting the September autumnal winds sweep some new pretties in. This month brings us a brand new line of jewellery by Luna which includes a massive triple owl totem in antique brass, a pretty bumble bee and a sweet vintage camera in brass and enamel.

Pretty Bumble Bee by Luna

Vintage Camera Necklace by Luna
So many other items have appeared on the site this week, you must have a look. More shiny things by Double Dice, including some massive skulls, some items have made a return, like the bold Drama Queen necklace and the divine Victorian Swallow necklace and adjustable ring. We are beginning to stock more adjustable rings so keep an eye out, you might see something you can't live without!

Get your wellies out, we're off to Dorset!

  There's only a few days left before we embark on our journey to Sixpenny Handley, home of the Endorse-It in Dorset Festival. This is going to be the first festival that we attend with Rock n Rouge so it is exciting and we don't know what's in store for us, but we are sure it will be a fun filled weekend!
  Altho the weekend calls for a lot of preparation, we are very nearly ready for the event, we have had new stock delivered, we have bought a shiny new black gazebo complete with banners so you can find us more easily, and our wellies are on the ready because everyone knows a festival in England is not a complete until you have a lot of mud!
  Having looked through the photos from the previous years, it looks promising. A few trader friends we have worked with at other events have been going to this festival for the past few years and they all agreed that it was an event well worth attending.
  The band line-up is diverse and includes acts such as UK Subs, Pronghorn And Banco De Gaia On Friday, New Model Army, Cropdusters, Rezillos, The Members, Urban Voodoo Machine On Saturday, Then The Closing Day On Sunday Will Feature Acts Such As Subgiant, Zodiac Mindwarp & TLR, Alabama 3 Acoustic, Citizen Fish, Dubmatix, RDF, Scrumpy Sunday Feat. The Wurzels
  Even if you have not purchased your tickets for the festival, if you were looking for something to do, this could well be the next weekend planned for you. You can find more details at the official website and although the online ticket sales ends on the 9th, they will be available to purchase at the gate.
  We are hoping for nice weather, but we'll have a blast no matter what the weather says!
  Make sure you come and see us if you're around!
  Here's a sneak peek at the new things we have got for you:

More than just a make-up bag!

I have an Archos 7 tablet, which is my travel media player. I had it next to my Liquor Brand make-up bag when I was packing to go to the last Portsmouth Tattoo Convention last month. And it occurred to me that those little pouches are perfect to carry and protect 7 inch internet tablets. So whether you own a Galaxy Tab, HTC Flyer, Panasonic Viera, Viewsonic Viewpad 7, Archos 7, Dell Streak 7, you can carry them around in style in one of the many versions of the Liquor Brand pouch. It also has a zip-up compartment inside so you can keep your earphones and wireless internet dongle separately. The bag measures 16 x 24 cm (6.5 x 9 inches in older currency!)

Stylish and useful, and just for £10.00, you can't ask for more!

Have a look in our bag section for a selection of different prints.

Summer has arrived and brought us new pretties under its wing

Last week saw several new products make their way to our doorstep, but they hadn't been uploaded until today because we were dashing around, getting ready for the Portsmouth Tattoo Convention which took place at the Guildhall. This was our stall, stacked high with goodies. :-)

Saturday was a bit quiet, but Sunday saw the place get busier with a colourful crowd. We each managed to get add new bit of ink to our respective, ever-growing collection!

Today, a parcel came from the lovely Leslie at Kitsch n Kouture in California, filled with goodies for you. We also have new products from Double Dice, Alchemy, Too Fast and Clarabella. The good news is all of these goodies are not just for girls!

Here's a sneak preview of some of our products, but have a good look around, we have added over 40 products today!

Bournemouth Ink: Fabulous as always!

If any of you have been to the Bournemouth tattoo convention you will know that it is always well organised and doesn't leave much time for boredom to set in. Despite all the amazing entertainment and the talented tattoo artists to watch at work, there is always time to fit a bit of shopping in.

Our stall ready for action!
We had a great weekend, thanks to all involved, it was one of the friendliest and warmest events we have had the pleasure to attend. Also, thanks to some useful feedback from customers and visitors who stopped at our stall to have a look and a chat, we know how we can expand our range of accessories a bit more. Men's accessories are in demand!

We like to add variety and try to please a wider audience, so if there is anything you would like to see on our shop, please let us know.

Here are some highlights of the weekend:

Summertime and conventions everywhere!

We were at the first South Parade Pier Tattoo Extravaganza last month, and I must say, it was a a great event, friendly atmosphere, bustling with colourful bodies, and staying true to ourselves, we took turns leaving our stall to get some ink! There was so much talent on display, once more, big names and apprentices alike, some  artists are just amazing. The venue was perfect for a tattoo convention, being on the seafront, where sailors were tattooed back in the days. 

Tomorrow, we are off to a local convention, in Bridgwater, the 5th Somerset Tattoo Convention which used to to take place outside a pub, under some marquees, but this year, the organisers have moved things indoors, at the Bridgwater sports and social club. I am looking forward to this, I have not attended the previous years so it will be nice to experience something local.

Then next weekend, we will be attending the Bournemouth Ink tattoo convention at the BIC. If the past 2 years are anything to go by, it will be a weekend to remember! I really hope to see many familiar faces again, and meet new ones. Come and say hello and eat some of our free sweeties if you're down this way! We will be there with new stuff we have picked just for you!

Starting the New Year in style: London Edge alternative trade show is coming soon

We've just started a new year and it is time we restock with new things.

What better way to start by going to the London Edge trade show on February 6th and see what we can find for you. Email us your wishlist of pretty things we don't already have and that you would like to see on the site or at conventions. We're really excited about this show, there's always so much to see and choose from, and it is usually a great day. We are looking forward to seeing the lovely people of Alchemy, the smashing gals from Too Fast, the friendly people at Clarabella and of course take in all the fabulous entertainment and make business contacts with some new suppliers and talented designers. 

We will keep you posted on what we found after the show!
