Tattoo Tea Party 2019 Video

We headed over to our neighbouring city of Manchester for the 2019 Tattoo Tea Party and shot our latest video!

The 8th edition of the convention was held within EventCity and celebrated tattoo artists from the UK and Ireland.

Give it a watch below!

We had a great time at Tattoo Tea Party this year and it was great to see old friends and new faces alike.

Aside from our main convention video, we managed to film some timelapses with artists tattooing in a variety styles, so keep an eye out for those in the near future!

Sponsored Artist of the Month – David Giersch

Combining realism with watercolour, David Giersch has developed an eye-catching, constantly evolving style over the years and continues to impress with his work.

David found his passion for the more alternative side of art back in his student days in Berlin, Germany when he discovered his love for graffiti. It wasn’t long before he took on this love full-time, becoming a professional sprayer/airbrusher a few years later.

It wasn’t until 2012 when a friend suggested that David try out his Cheyenne HAWK machine that he started on the road to becoming one of the finest tattoo artists around.

From that point on, David began to develop his own style, a mix of realistic and watercolour tattoos, with some abstract thrown in for good measure.

After just two years, David opened up his own studio, True Color Arts, in his hometown of Berlin, which now plays host to three resident artists and a plethora of guest artists every year.

Although proficient with black and grey inks, David is perhaps best associated with his vibrant colour work, with bright hues that seem to jump right off the skin.

David uses various supplies from Killer Ink Tattoo to create his striking work, including Hustle Butter Deluxe tattoo care, Cheyenne Professional Tattoo Equipment machines (including the latest Sol Nova) and cartridges, Dermalize PRO aftercare, and Intenze Tattoo Ink.

You can keep up to date with David Giersch’s work by following him on Facebook and Instagram.

Sponsored Artist of the Month – David Barrera

Fast forward to 2012 and David opened up his first studio in Spain, marking the beginning of a remarkable rise that has seen him win multiple awards at conventions and even hold a Guinness World Record!

Back in November 2016, David broke the record for ‘longest tattoo session’ when he tattooed his client for a marathon 56 hours at X-Skullz Tattoo studio in Wettingen, Switzerland.
