Isn't #14 the Nambucca rooster?


yep it is

mentioned in fthc blog post dated 14th April 2009 :" I return from the wilds of Birmingham, where I have been availing myself of the talents of Mr Matt Hunt, tattooist extraordinaire. I got a Hans Holbein Jr woodcut done on my right arm to match the Nambucca Rooster on my left. Pics when it’s not covered in ink and blood, haha." http://frank-turner.com/2009/04/14/sett ... -straight/

He does have excellent taste :-)
photos of the tattoo can be found in the Mongol Hord photos sets (Ben Morse, Dan Griffiths) which I think I linked to earlier in the thread

Me too - total genius. Love the placement of the, the simplicity of them, that they can rarely be seen when he plays and then when he puts his hands together on the mic to sing unaccompanied the sight of the is startling, vivid, bold and wonderful. Tattoo done by Oliver Peck, USA

"I saw the picture you uploaded about your new ink.

Everyone in the band has been ripping on me saying that it is a Foo Fighters tattoo. I’m like mother fuck. It’s cool though, I got it done by Oliver [Peck], who is the Warped Tour tattooist. He’s a good dude. He is famous for tattooing hard and fast. He did both of these in a half hour, which hurt like balls. They say that you never get any drop out ink from an Oliver Peck tattoo. I know him through Lucero really, he is friends with those guys and jumps on their bus all the time.

The reasoning behind the tattoo choice?

I like old violins and old Tele’s and I think it’s a cool tattoo. It’s not massively complicated."


:-) :-) :-)

I like Living Ink - Frank has some wonderful pieces

My problem is there are far too many great thinkers, poets, and musicians to pick the first (and only?) to commemorate with a tattoo.

And I'm a chickenshit.

I had been really debating about the choice for my first tattoo because it seemed like a massive decision. (Like losing your virginity except I wanted to be choosier this time around :wink: ) So the perfect choice was one incorporating my kids' names. But now that the first is done, it's "game on!"
