SKUSE ME! It's the final instalment of our epic three-part feature on the famous Skuse family. Jimmie tells us about his tattoo museum and brings the history of the Bristol Tattoo Club into the present day.
TATTOO THE TABOO: We bring you a ground-breaking feature on tattoos, tattooists and mental health, including your chance to buy fantastic art through a unique charity fundraiser.
SEXY OR SEXIST? We take the bull by the horns and open the great magazine cover model debate. Talking of which... what do you think of Ramon Maiden's beautiful cover painting? There's more of his art, and an illuminating interview, inside the magazine.
You can also get your teeth into our interview with dentist-turned-tattooist Roza (of Sake Tattoo in Greece) and enjoy her crazy neo-trad designs. And we take you to Japan to meet Yasuno and Kenji of YK Tattoo, who produce stunning work in a modern traditional style. And last but not least, MASHED SWEDE! Phatt German (aka Alec Linsjo talks about his adventures in realism... and doesn't tell us how he got his nickname.
We have show reports from the amazing new Bristol Tattoo Convention, the second Leeds International Tattoo Expo, and the 10th anniversary Krakow Tattoo Fest, surely one of the highlights of the European calendar.
Sean Fred Hedger is in the Mugshot hotseat, O'Happy Dagger are the 'In Focus' featured studio, and our News pages are absolutely bursting with all kinds of good things. As always, there's a billion shades of awesome in our massive Gallery section.
