The Gypsy Gentleman Episode 5: London.
Marcus Kuhn presents the fifth edition of a brand new tattoo and travel magazine.
Featuring interviews with Valerie Vargas and Ian Flower.

Valerie Vargas

I tattoo at Frith street tattoo, London, UK. I had my apprenticeship under Dave Crossley in Stirling, Scotland. I wasn’t tattooing long before I was given the chance to join the Frith street team and have been there for the last 5 years with Dante and the crew.

Even though I was lucky enough to study Art at college I still consider my artistic abilities as self-taught. The college part helped me more with organising myself and my work and seeing projects through to the end however!

I feel like in the last year I finally began to leave behind the type of work people thought I was known for and concentrating on the type of work I actually wanted to do. I’m doing more traditional tattoo subjects and playing around with traditionally executed work whilst adding some extra fun for myself, whether it’s adding more colours than I think I should be using or adding details so as to bring new life to older flash designs. Colour pieces dominate my work but I’d love to do more black & grey cholo style tattoos, I’m pretty spoiled with work though so I can’t complain!

Ian Flower

I began tattooing in 1991 and progressed to opening my shop new Skool tattoos in 1997 in Ewell village ,Surrey .I am still there at present and attempting to find a way out !

Over the years ,I have worked at Into You tattoo and Frith street in London ,whilst still maintaining my own shop.I specialise in large scale ,traditionalist Japanese designs .I also do a bit of old school traditional work when the opportunity presents itself.

Ian Flower can be found at New Skool Tattoos in London.
