“Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD.” Leviticus 19:28
Along with certain aspects of beard trimming, it would appear the Lord was also dead set against tattoos, what a party pooper. Be prepared Shoreditch for you shall surely soon disappear into the flaming pits of Hell.
“There’s always something terribly flawed about people who are tattooed” – Truman Capote
Us? We love them. We love to look at them, photograph them and some of the more flawed of us at Trebuchet are covered in them. After all, tattoo art is now seeing a growing acceptance in the fine-art world.
So gather round sinners and those about to spit in the eyes of God. Join us in one of the most enjoyable events of the year, The Great British Tattoo Show at Alexander Palace on 25th and 26th May.
Revel in this steaming pot of writhing bare human flesh, drool over the very latest oh-so-tight latex fashion, eat and drink your fill from the vast array of vendors, receive a sinful beard trim, be in awe of the exotic skin art or get pricked yourself by one of the hundreds of fine artists attending , all this and so much more but be prepared to be swallowed up by the slathering mouth of Satan himself.
