I’ve been itching to get a new tattoo since I got the last one, back in September at the London Tattoo Convention. Not really been able to afford it though.
Then the other week I spotted that Melissa Szeto was offering a special offer – to do her Halloween flash tattoos for £50. Bargain!
I didn’t know whether to get Christopher Lee as Dracula or a Michael Jackson zombie. In the end I decided to go for the Wacko Jacko option. I got it on the back of my knee.
Melissa is very charming and cool, and I would recommend anyone to go to her for tattoo work. I’m definitely going back to get some more stuff soon. Her website is melszeto.com
The tattoo wasn’t as painful as I’d expected, and I’m really pleased with the results. I can’t believe how vivid the colours are. I reckon I’ll probably get the Christopher Lee done next to it at some point in the future.
By coincidence, I got it done on the same week that Michael Jackson’s doctor was found guilty of manslaughter and got sent to prison. So it all ties together nicely. Bonus!
Oddly enough, I’m not a particular Michael Jackson fan, although I do think the Thriller video is fantastic. Maybe I’ll get a Gary Glitter tattoo one day…
This isn’t the best quality picture, but I’ll post a better one once it’s healed.
