You remember I went to London two weeks ago right? Well, today you get a sneak peek of what I got up up with Laura of Babb Photo, Alice of Th’ink and lots of lovely real life brides.
Alice first contacted myself and Laura to see if we wanted to help out on a shoot for a new up and coming tattoo magazine featuring lots of pretty ladies. We of course jumped at the chance .
We were planning and scheming for weeks and we managed to rope in four real life tattooed brides! We had so much fun on the day with the help of the beautiful Hayley Fell who was there working her make up magic!
Here is a sneak peek of one of the lovely brides Emma (Who’s wedding will be featured soon on Marry Me Ink!) and a little bit about what you can expect from new magazine Things and Ink

It’s true – I’m totally spoiling you this week before I jet off to Spain! This morning I bring you the awesome Brodie and Sinead where they married in her father’s rainforest!
Each of them look awesome, especially Sinead who had not one or two, but THREE dresses to wear on the day. Beautiful images from Ian C Pool and Clarissa Bones – collectively known as IC Bones. I had the chance to speak with Sinead and Brodie about their wedding day:
“We met at Soundwave metal festival in 2007 where we were both having a rad time with our best friends. We had a great night and met up again at the Overcranked festival a month later, went for a date the week after and have been best friends and lovers ever since.

OH MY!! I’m SO excited to share this amazing shoot with you today! Beautiful dresses from the amazing Cyanide Kiss who you can find on Etsy here.
Everyone loves rainbow hair right?
“Cute, retro and Lolita inspired clothing for the sweet and not so innocent!
The Cyanide Kiss aesthetic is outrageously sweet, and girlie to the extreme, a nod to both the Lolita girls from Harajuku as well as the Rockabilly girls from Manchester, merging two styles from opposite sides of the globe. Providing unique styles that you won’t see anywhere else. Inspired by the 40’s and 50’s and a love of vintage clothing and infused with a twist of Japanese street styles to create a unique style.”

Good evening! How was your bank holiday weekend? I celebrated my birthday yesterday and got lots of goodies. Today I’m going to share with you something I will be treating myself to soon with my birthday spends:
The cover itself looks awesome – Especially the biological heart!
“Tattoos, which were once an exclusively underground phenomenon, now have mass appeal. This evolution from sub culture to mainstream has brought fresh ideas, tensions, and shifts with it. Traditionalists and innovators have staked out very different positions. Over the last few years, new influences from the realms of art, fashion, traditional tattoo art, and visual culture have given rise to a dynamic tattoo scene a new underground.”
“Forever breaks the mould of standard tattoo books and their typical display of flesh. This publication is an in-depth investigation of current developments in contemporary tattoo culture. It introduces key innovators and presents a broad range of styles and approaches. Quality photos and insightful texts document the new self-image of a rapidly expanding and extremely creative scene.”
Alex Binnie, Yann Black, Scott Campbell, Curly, El Monga, Fergadelic and Mike Giant are just some of the lovelies featured in this awesome book.
How awesome does this sound? You can purchase this book on Amazon here.
