In my humble opinion Meraki Fade is the most inspiring tattooist working today. An accomplished dot work tattooist, hand tap artist, business woman, film maker, anthropologist, adventurer and trapeze artist; Fade is in a league of her own. Yayo met up with Fade to get her opinion on the return of the tattoo convention and what it feels like to be lost at sea.
Simon Cooke has been there, done it and bought the T.shirt. An award winning artist who has survived the rigors of reality TV he is a jewel in the crown of the Yayo Pro Team. Matt Haddon-Reichardt headed over to Newcastle-Under-Lyme to meet one of tattooings true icons.
