Michael Jackson Zombie Tattoo

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.

    The Michael Jackson Thriller video is one of the most famous video clips of all time. That single film clip changed the way film clips were both produced and viewed. A 14 minute video clip was unheard of for the time and it set the world records for “Most Successul Music Video”. Thriller was seen as a mini-movie and completely different from the “band standing in front of a camera playing their song” type of film clip. It was the first of many video clips that Michael Jackson would produce that were spectacular in their production. ‘
