I have always enjoyed photographs of tattooers working. Especially close up. I think it gives a feel of what large scale tattooing actually looks like. Maybe more than shots of the finished tattoo. So I occasionally ask someone to take a photo while I’m working on a large tattoo. I prefer it when my face isn’t in the shot, but sometimes I have to let the photographer take the shot they want.
Craig Burton took the majority of these photos. Maybe Naomi Reed took some too.

I started the dragon gate on the back of the right thigh in October 2008. I tattooed the carp slightly less than two weeks ago.
