Me and My Tattoo: Mark Wilson
Mark Wilson, 44, Sidcup
Why this design?
I have three other women’s faces on my leg, so I’m eventually going to have a leg sleeve made up of women in a forest setting.
I just find the women Aaron Heaton (tattoo artist) creates are really beautiful.
How much did it cost?
Did it hurt?
I seem to have a high pain threshold - except when I haven’t eaten - because it never really hurts when I get tattooed.
The needle going into the skin feels like a scratching sensation but it isn’t painful.
What did your friends say?
My friends really like my tattoos.
They’re never really surprised when I have a new tattoo though because I have so many now.
Have you got any more?
I have a musically inspired sleeve on one arm, a fantasy sleeve on the other arm, a tiger portrait on my thigh, a cat on my chest, a memoir to my dad on the side of my chest, an angel on my ribs, The Muppets dotted about my body, a killer sparrow on my ankle and a big mermaid with a turtle on my back.
*Mark’s tattoo was done by Aaron Heaton at Demon Inkorporation in Bellegrove Road, Welling
