Me and My Tattoo: James Wade
James Wade, 24 , Welling
Why this design?
I had a tattoo from a younger age which I always regretted, so I wanted that covered up.
I decided to cover it with a Mexican sugar skull because they're so different and so detailed.
How much did it cost?
Did it hurt?
Yes, it’s a strong scratching feeling but it’s an enjoyable pain.
It’s just part of getting a tattoo.
What did your friends say?
All my mates love it.
Some of them even want to invest in their own tattoos now.
Have you got any more?
Yes I have a leg sleeve also by Ollie (Pinder).
It’s a staircase to heaven with an angel, swallows, butterflies and old ruins.
I'm also in the middle of having this sugar skull extended into a sleeve.
*James’ tattoo was done by Ollie Pinder at Demon Inkorporation in Bellegrove Road, Welling
