Like Andy Warhol art dragged thru 20yrs of dirty rehearsal rooms & beer soaked punk gigs”

Paul Talbot Tattooist

Art is a difficult thing to accurately describe but, when I have to, I like to describe my work as ‘Stills from a postmodern, science-fiction movie set ten minutes in the future’ and my process as ‘Re-examining Bits and Pieces of What’s Been Discarded in the Haste of the Late 20th Century and Sticking Them Together’.

Mostly because it just sounds good to be honest. ⁣

In a sea of 'sameness' his instantly recognisable style - that combines street art influences with contemporary portraiture and graphic design - emerges as a fresh voice with a clear vision.
The underlying theme of his work speaks to a far broader audience. Paul Talbot gives us permission to do not wait for the stars to align. If the road doesn’t exist, make your own

A Powerful Artform 

One of the things that makes tattooing the most powerful art form around is that the iconography is constantly evolving. Tattooists throughout the ages have, traditionally, drawn art that – almost always – involved some form of social comment based on the era and culture they were living in – whether they were aware of it or not.

Rebels

And I’m not really any different. I’m just a Good Old Fashioned Rebel Challenging the Notion that Tattoo Iconography is Relevant to a 2oth Century Analogue, Comic Book Reading, Suburban, Rock’n’Roll Kid from the Middle of England.

Get a Tattoo

Paul Talbot Tattooist

I’ve got loads of artwork ready to go in my shop that you can buy right now. This is my preferred way to work. Just check out my instagram to see how these pieces turn out and you’ll see why.

But you might have your own idea, right?

My process is very simple. Just decide on what you want and drop me an email. If I think your idea will translate well into my style I’ll email you back and we’ll arrange everything for my first available appointment(s).

Tell Me WHAT & NOT why

All tattoos are meaningful in some way. But, why you want your tattoo and the meaning behind it really doesn’t help me when I’m making your artwork. In fact, it can make the design less affective and more difficult to put together. I prefer a rough outline of your idea first. Then we can talk about the details together as we make your artwork. It’s easier this way and a little more ‘Human’.

Send me your Idea – Drop me an Email: Paul@paultlbt.com or use the contact from on this website.

Ask a Question

GOT A QUESTION?

If you have any questions about my process, if you’d like to get a tattoo, a design or talk to me about That Tattoo Show – then, I’d love to hear from you.

Just drop me a message using the form below. or email me direct:paul<at>paultlbt.com.

Cheers
