As many of you have seen with all that is going on around the world our much needed NHS service has been asking for donations.
After much research we decided to go to the public and ask our clients if they knew of anyone local that could help us in our mission to give back to the NHS.
After an amazing response on our Facebook we had the details we needed. After some phone calls we were set. Shamack and Anna travelled to the hospital to a safe point to donate to Victoria hospital. A big thank you to everyone for your messages, phone calls and names.
We are very proud to announce we have donated over a 1,000 PPE items to our hospital. Including disposable gloves in all sizes, disposable aprons and disposable sleeve protectors.
We have heard back of Ward 19 where we donated the items and they are very grateful for these and are being used as you read this blog. We will photos of the staff to come shortly.
We would like to take this time to thank all of the NHS, our customers and everyone who is helping how they can in this challenging climate we are all in at the moment. Stay safe everyone and we cant wait to see you all again soon.

Dotwork tattooing at InkDen:
Dotwork tattooing at InkDen is something we get asked about quite often. We have decided to create this new InkDen TV video showcasing our Dotwork tattoo specialist David Cairns.
Growing up in a small town David has drawn all his life. Over the years his love for rock ‘n’ roll and comics influenced what he drew and painted massively. Next came tattooing for David. Especially dotwork tattooing.
Over recent months he discovered the beauty of dotwork shading and will be focusing on this technique and will be combining it with neo traditional styles.
See Davids Dot Work Tattooing Video here
Davids passion for tattooing doesn’t settle at Dotwork. He has enjoyed tattooing on many different styles recently. Realism style tattooing has been something David has enjoyed also these past months and the outcome is amazing.
As well as tattooing at the InkDen studio David attended his first tattoo convention this year at Wolverhampton Halloween bash. This two day tattoo event saw David start his Dr.Who inspired design over the span of the two day tattoo event.
If you would like to see more of Davids work, designs up for grabs and prints and merchandise feel free to check out his page!
