Hospital tattooing

August 22, 2017

I'm sure by now most people have already seen that I had the opportunity to tattoo a guy who was hit in the Manchester bombing. I get asked to do a lot of things in my career but nothing comes close to being asked to help this guy after being hit in the bombing. He text me one day telling me his story about being hit in the bombing and he’d asked if the hospital would let him would I go and tattoo him in hospital. He was going to be stuck in hospital for a while as he’d lost the use of his legs in the bombing. I really wanted to help him but was very unsure how the press would put the story out. As we all know the papers do like to make me sound negative about people and to top it off I got told ITV was going to be filming it. On the day of the tattoo. I decided to go up first thing before filming started, I wanted to get to know him a bit before the fun and games of filming a TV show started. When I got to Southport hospital they seemed to know who I was already, they could not have been nicer and were really helpful. When I met Martin the guy who was hit he seemed very up beat for saying what he and his daughter had just been through. He started to tell me all the facts about that night. He remembered seeing the bomber and then waking up in the middle of the madness on the floor not able to move. As he was telling me about it, not once did he say a negative thing about the people responsible for it. I wasn't expecting him to be like that. If anybody had the right to be full of hate he did. He made me think how lucky we are in life, people bitch and fall out over the stupidest of thing. Then Martin after all he and his family have been through gets up everyday grateful to still be hear to live life. When the press come out about it he didn’t want to speak to them direct. So I did it on his behalf. The documentary comes out on ITV on 29th august. I hope you all watch it and then see how lucky we all are. ✌🏻
