New tattoo balm, it's simply sublime

There are so many potions and lotions out there to help your tattoo heal. I have tried a few and I know that I am not the only person who doesn't get on well with the very popular Bepanthen. My skin doesn't like it at all. I have tried a few different ones, some were ok, some very good, but I have found a new product back in September at the London Tattoo Convention.

The lovely Missy LePink is behind this fantastic pink Tattoo Tonic. Her stall was across the way from ours and I went talking to her, and I tried some of the product and it didn't take very long to find that I actually loved it. I love how it feels on the skin, I love how it smells, and most importantly, I love how it soothes and helps tattoos heal well. I had some touch-ups done on one of my tattoos that weekend, and after a couple of days, some of the outlines were feeling sore and pink. I applied some of Missy LePink's Tattoo Tonic to my sore skin and within a few hours, the inflammation had vanished. I also like supporting small businesses, this product is made here in the UK, it has been EU approved for use and it isn't animal tested. It also contains no animal ingredients, no parabens, no petroleum, no additives or nasty chemicals. We are very proud of being the very first resellers of this wonderful product.

You should consider trying it too, because as my grandmother used to say - "Dans les petits pots les meilleurs onguents!" - which means, the best stuff comes in small packages! Treat your inked skin to a little love, try Missy's Tonic!

It's been awhile but we're back!

We had a little bit of a quiet year on here. But I think that this year should be a bit more active on the blog front. We went away for awhile on a long overdue holiday and while we were away we celebrated my birthday. It was fabulous; we caught up with old friends, saw some family, visited places we had not seen in years, I even overcame my fear of heights for a day and went up the Empire State building. The East coast of America has so much beautiful architecture, it makes my head spin. And I got an amazing new tattoo of a distinguished victorian old deer in a tiny little top hat. She is darling!

Whilst in New York, we swung by to visit Metal Mafia and collected some goodies, had a package waiting for us from Retro-a-gogo and on our way back, we dropped in at TooFast and picked up some rather cool stuff. Those things are slowly making their way on to the website, so bear with me!

As soon as we got back, we had to get over our jetlag, pack up the shop and drag our weary arses over to London for a madness filled weekend, working at the London Tattoo Convention. It was crazy busy, we had an absolutely awesome weekend. Going to a lot of conventions, you tend to run into the same lovely people, you make new friends and pleasant acquaintances. The London Tattoo Convention is one of the best ones and if you have never been, make sure you go one year, it is quite the experience, there is so much to see, so much colour and variation, you will get an eyeful!

Amongst the things we picked up on our travels, here's a couple I'd like to show you:

Awesome cigarette cases by Retro-a-Gogo. Even the non-smokers will want one to store small things.

In the Metal Mafia parcel, we has some brilliant skully bangles. These come in a set of two, one is weathered metal, the other is black. I have worn mine almost every day since I got them!

If you like skulls, then you might like some of the belly rings we picked up as well. Here's a couple, first a cameo of a skeleton lady 

Now a skull and crossbones cameo.  

We have so much more we have added to the site recently, I will leave things like this for now and catch up soon.

What Summer? Nevermind the rain, I've got a pretty handbag.

Seems like the gods of Summer have forsaken us and our land this year, this June, jumpers and waterproof coats are all the rage. The sales of sunscreens have plummeted,there's an Autumnal feel in the air. So I have been looking for new things, to cheer myself up. Anyway I hope they cheer you up too! Hell, I even found a new supplier, so that really made my week! There will be new bags, new jewellery, some t-shirts even! And shoes. Yes, glorious moustache shoes.

Here's a sneak peek at what's to come.

Here's a couple of the new bags by Liquor Brand:

Pretty bowling bag

Cool little make-up bag. Can be used as a pencil case too!

A stunning piece of Americana by Retro-a-gogo, a shiny chrome Chevrolet badge necklace.

We also have been dealing with Metal Mafia, getting in yet more navel jewellery and magnetic microdermal tops and dangles.

I will be ordering some Moustache shoes this week and some more t-shirts and vest tops from Too Fast so if you want to pre-order your shoes, go to the website now and do it so I can add your order to mine!

Do you love these Moustache shoes as much as I do?

And don't forget to "Like" our Facebook page to get updates and sneak previews of what's to come on the shop, where we will be and when you can get things before everyone else. We have also launched our Facebook shop and we will be adding to the catalogue gradually.

The New Magnetic Microdermal dangles: a very good thing

I posted a little while back about some cool new microdermal dangles. They are magnetic so they always hang the right way down, and should it get caught in something, it will detach itself from the base without causing trauma to your piercing. I've gone to sleep with mine on several times and I've never lost it, it stayed put through the night. I really love them, they make your microdermal more versatile, you can change the tops quickly without unscrewing the base. This can also protect the internal thread of your anchor by reducing the number of times you change jewellery. I have ordered some magnetic gem tops without the dangles as well and they will be on the shop soon. Check out the new Piercings section where we have a small selection of body jewellery available.

The smaller ones I thought are idea for facial piercings, there's a small anchor, some cherries, a little lock, a swallow. I have seen the cherries and the anchor in particular, on a couple of my customers and they looked amazing.

Here's some Cherry dangles, which can be found on our new piercings section.

We have more coming this week and will be added as soon as they get here.

We also have a few belly bars, check them out!
