Royal Tattoo 30th Anniversary flash sheet print by Valerie Vargas

I contributed to Henning’s Royal Tattoo’s 30th anniversary with this commemorative flash sheet. It was part of a gallery showing sheets by all tattooers that have had the honour to work at one of Europe’s best, Royal Tattoo.

I decided to do a limited run of 30 luxurious prints, so once they sell out, there will be no more. Don’t miss out, if you want one, go get it!

L M Knight sets now available through our online store!

We love Lee’s work here at Copperhead Editions and we are very proud to announce that from now on, 2 of his most recent sets will be available to purchase through our online store!

You can find Lee working at Romford’s number one tattoo studio, Cult Classic and also working at Frith Street tattoo in the heart of London’s soho. His tattoo flash is most certainly based on vintage traditional designs but is re-imagined through his eyes with a dash of genuine psychedelia.

Personally I think his stuff is some of the most unique being put out there in the UK right now and I’m very happy to be allowed to pour over the originals and turn them into small parcels of awesomeness for you to enjoy.

Girl with Dragon print in 3 vibrant colour choices

This beautiful new print was originally a collaboration design between myself and Stewart for this year’s SFO convention. We loved it so much we decided to do a print run of them in a selection of colours. You have a choice between a blue-eyed girl, green-eyed girl and a brown-eyed girl.

We wanted a vibrant cerulean blue, an apple green and a rich warm caramel to compliment the backgrounds and eyes of the main subject. We’d like to think any of these would adorn any wall perfectly!

Sarah and Frank Carter’s tattoo flash

The Carters are a couple of my favourite tattooers, and when they asked us to print some sets of their flash in time for the London tattoo convention I jumped at the chance!

I got to really pour over all 12 sheets of immaculate tattoo flash and take in the designs. Every sheet is full of great designs, crying out to be tattooed. My favourite thing is the fact that both sets are like mirror images of each other, they compliment each other, colourful and monochrome, catering to all tastes within the traditional spectrum.

This is just a peek at the bagged sets, details to follow on how to get your hands on them.

Printed on luxurious thick paper (192gsm) 29.7cm x 36cm

 

Eagle & Pin-up Print coming soon!

We’re very proud to release a new print to the Copperhead Editions store.

It’s based on a classic tattoo flash design, re-imagined through numerous tattooers’ eyes over the decades, and this was my spin on it. It will be available to purchase directly from the Frith Street booth at the London Tattoo Convention this weekend and online later in October.

It’s printed on gorgeous 350gsm, 100% cotton fine art archival paper to feel just like the original. It has a lovely watercolour paper texture and the colours are a warm deep tone.

UPDATE: Now available!

Jenni Fagan’s Panopticon Cover sneak peek

I’ve been a busy bee lately, painting and working away on commissions.

This is the latest one I can show you a teaser of. Jenni Fagan’s debut novel, The Panopticon is having a german book release and I was asked to illustrate the dust cover for it. You can read a wee review of it over HERE if you’re interested.

I can only show you a little section but I’m very excited for it to finally be released and show it off, I’m very proud of it so far.

Keep your eyes peeled towards the end of this year when it will be available to purchase (if you can read german, or simply love collecting books all the same).

New Copperhead stickers!

We’re very happy to have finally received the first batch of Copperhead Editions stickers!

They are weather resistant vinyl in black and metallic gold. Lush! I’m looking to send some as freebies where possible in new orders placed today onwards, and if you are at the London Tattoo Convention this year you can pick one up from us at the Frith Street booth.

If there’s a thing that we will never grow out of is putting stickers on our folders and stationery. We will definitely be coming up with more designs in the future.

‘Chop of Ages’ by Jordan Teear

Jordan is a beloved friend and co-worker at Frith Street tattoo (you can check his work tattoo HERE). I’ve always enjoyed his tattoos and recently he’s been creating a lot of artwork outside of tattooing, he’s working from traditional classic designs but having fun with them.

He asked us to make 20 high quality prints of his latest pen drawing, Chop of Ages. We used luxurious 350gsm textured paper to bring it to life and I’m pretty stoked even if I do say so myself!

We won’t be stocking these at the moment but if you’re a good friend of Jordan’s, you probably have one of these babies in your very exclusive collection!
