Although an art form practiced by almost every culture for thousands of years, tattooing somehow acquired a rather seedy image during the 20th century. Thankfully those stereotypes are starting to fade as the practise becomes more widely accepted in mainstream society – in fact, half of the Starfish team sport tattoos themselves.

We’re very excited to have launched a new web site for On The Edge Tattooing last week – Ox Green, owner and tattooist, is both a great artist and a good friend. Ox’s new site shows off his studio in Girrawheen, and his portfolio of work in a variety of styles, with more pictures to come soon. There’s a frequently asked questions page for those who want to know more about being tattooed, and a news section where Ox will post updates to his portfolio, news from the shop and from around the world of tattooing. Thanks to WordPress, it’s very easy to maintain.
