Honeymoon Tattoos – Laura & Tom

Good afternoon! I hope you’ve had a splendid weekend? I certainly did at the Wedding Carnival, but that’s for another day!
Today I have a fabulous pair of honeymoon tattoos on such a wonderful couple!
You may notice Laura as Mrs Lou Pops or even the Bonfire Night Bride. Yep – They were married on bonfire night! How awesome?!! You can read more about the wedding over on Bonfire Night Bride, but I’m going to hand straight over to Laura now to talk about the tattoos she & Tom got whilst on their honeymoon!
“Tom and I were married on November 5th 2011 at the stunning Danby Castle in North Yorkshire and we honeymooned on the Queen Mary 2 spending a week in luxury, crossing the Atlantic from Southampton to New York. We then spent five days in New York living it up at the Soho Grand and two days in Boston at the Nine Zero hotel on Boston Common. My husband and I are both BIG tattoo fans, mainly brightly coloured traditional style but we appreciate all good work. Saying that, I do also have some pretty crap tattoos too but we all make mistakes! We went travelling in 2009 and both had tattoos in San Francisco as a reminder of our amazing time away so we decided that from then on, any big holiday we have we’ll get a new tattoo and what trip away is bigger than your honeymoon?! 
We both adore the work of Valerie Vargas, based at London’s Frith Street Tattoos and so we used the links on her website to find an NYC based artist. If she’s a fan then that artist is good enough for us! We soon came across Sarah Schor at King’s Avenue Tattoo, a shop owned by the mind blowing Mike Rubendall, and we didn’t look any further. Her style is exactly what we love. We emailed the shop and they really couldn’t have been any friendlier and more helpful. We carried out all of our consultations via email and when the time came for our appointments what Sarah had drawn up for us was perfect! 

We both wanted something to resemble our wedding day so as it was a Bonfire Night wedding we both went for the phrase “remember remember” as a nod towards the 5th November. The book and inkpot on my tattoo resemble the wedding register. I wanted something brightly coloured somewhere only my husband would see it and as I have nice hefty legs, my right thigh was the perfect canvas for it!

Tom had a Statue of Liberty with blue eyes as my ‘baby blues’ as he calls them, are his favourite part of me!”


Aren’t they amazing tattoos? Leave Laura & Tom some love and be sure to swing by the Bonfire Night Bride site and read Laura’s updates! They’re fabulous!
