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.
