Franks Handwriting For A Tattoo

Post by Rfried25 » Thu Jun 25, 2015 4:46 pm

Hi Everyone, I've been going through some tough times and like many.. Frank's music has really helped me get through it...I've decided to get a tattoo of Photosynthesis. I've heard that if you ask Frank he'll write out the lyrics you want on paper and you can use his handwriting design for the tattoo. Anybody try/do this? Anyone know how to do it or reach out to him? Thanks!

You will probably find this useful: http://frank-turner.com/contact-faq/

He has recently decided to not continue doing hand written message for people as he has become inundated, although it hasn't made the FAQ yet. But being in the same sphere, he might not be too keen. I believe this will fall under number 22, but I would suggest paying particular attention to the line "if you find me at a show, we can sort whatever."

Anyone still waiting on number 12 should probably give up hope around 5 years ago.

Why not show them the Get Better video? Plenty of Frank's handwriting in that one?

Someone with a little more time on their hands than me needs to get working on a Frank Turner font.

Yes, please. I like the way he makes the lowercase a.

I got a tattoo in Frank's handwriting done a few years ago. We met him after a gig at Fibbers and he kindly wrote out what I wanted. I don't think it would've occured to me to email him about it.

The tattooist did ask if it'd been written by a child though haha
