Locals wanted for Tattoo Fixers

Wednesday April 26 2017


Tattoo fixers Tattoo fixers


LOCALS are wanted to appear on Channel 4's Tattoo Fixers programme. 

Participants will get the chance to have a regrettable tattoo covered up by one of the three top ink artists in the UK - Jay Hutton, Steven Porter or Alice Perrin.

The artists promise to transform ugly tats into magnificent works of art, which they say will “leave participants speechless”.

So far the show has seen misspelt phrases, ex’s names and even soap star lookalikes cropping up in the pop up parlour in East London.

Anyone interested in taking part should email producers at Studio Lambert with a picture at: tattoos@studiolambert.com

The popularity of this show just goes to show how stupid people are for getting tattos in the first place. They just make you look cheap, chavvy and thuggish and make you unemployable. I run a business and there's no way I'd ever employ someone with a tattoo.

Well, you are missing out on an awful lot of talent in the country because of your bigotry. You are contributing to the rise in unemployment. Now who's stupid?

I had a tattoo done of a little rose after my mum died. (Yellow rose)
It looked more like a cabbage once completed!
I then a few years ago attempted to have it covered up!
That turned out to look like a lettuce!
Basically I'm sick of been a vegetable & would love the opportunity to appear on your show to rectify my problem. Kind regards
Lauren.

Got a tattoo on my ribs a years back to impress the woman iam now engage to as she thought I was still pure even with just the one tattoo, when I got it I had a idea in mind on paper it looked good but when finished it was a mess and the guy did it in 30mins even when I was at point where I passed out from the pain he was putting me through he still continued with it, in fairness it being on my ribs I can understand it's painful and it put me off tattoo, but when I got my sleeve done by some professional I notice that the difference in quality and care that was given when being tattoo, only thing is I have this messy tattoo on my ribs

Basically he got with me and then I found out he was married with a kid and by then I was pregnant. Then he left me for his wife and came back and like an idiot I took him back for me to get pregnant a second time for him to up and leave again! When I was 7 month pregnant and declared his un dien love for his wife! :,) and now he doesn't want anything to do with the kids and says there the biggest mistakes of his life. So I want that arsehole off my body and covered up like he never existed
