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!

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!

‘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!

Webstore Photoshoot

Stewart and I took some new photos for the web store. We took the usual straight ‘what you see is what you get’ stuff but we also wanted to really show the paper and print quality and played with the lighting to really get some good close ups. Notice the tooth of the paper (‘tooth’ is the grain or the texture of the paper) on some of the close ups.

Hopefully it’ll show off how nice they look in real life. Remember, they are all prints, not the originals!
