TATTOOS: Swan Tattoo by Georgina Jurd



A few months back I had the top part of my arm started to move forward with the completion of my second sleeve. Well a couple of days ago, we finished the colour stage of my outer arm with the fantastic and amazingly talented Georgina Jurd of Intense Colours, Bitterne, Southampton.

As always with my tattooists we had a lovely chat, and as a fellow cat lover we inevitably discussed our cats antics. We also discussed the recent Southampton Tattoo Festival, which she worked and I attended (thoughts: very good, very hot on Saturday, very busy Sunday!). We also had another girl being tattooed in the studio at the same time, by Gary Chase. I'm not going to lie, I didn't envy her at all - a beautiful mandala on the front of her shoulder. The detail was insane, but looked really painful due to it's placement.




I sat for a total of four hours having all my colour added. As normal, I left the colour entirely to Georgina, and we landed on pretty golds, reds, pinks and purples. Contrasted with the black and white/grey of the swans, it simple is stunning - even if I do say so myself.

Dann helped me with some photos of the finished piece - for obvious reasons!

  3. That really is gorgeous, she did an amazing job! I don't know why but some of the detailing reminds me of Alice in Wonderland! This really makes me want to finally get around to getting a new one.

    1. If you think this reminds you of Alice in Wonderland, you should see my other arm! It's woodland creatures and teapots and teacups!

      But thank you - I'm so happy, and it's healing beautifully!

      Thanks for commenting!
