The Sweeney

Earlier this week I had the pleasure of finishing Ema Sweeney’s sleeve of Bath Street Tattoo Collective.

This piece was a lot of fun, a great mix of both my early and current styles, simple and bold areas with detail and intricate elements. Ema and I have a lot of work ahead of us as we embark on larger projects, and I cannot wait.

Always a pleasure and honor to tattoo a fellow tattooist.

Echoes opening night. 

Opening night of the exhibition was amazing. Thank you to everyone who came along. Jim and I were chuffed to bits with the turn out and it was amazing to see so many new and old friends. 

Here’s a little montage I made of the pieces in the exhibition. 

Echoes – Thomas Hooper and Jim Macairt

I have an exhibition opening his Friday and Saturday that I am very proud to announce. 

ECHOES & Tattoo Meditations, Thomas Hooper & Jim MacAirt.
Please Join us for the Preview of our new exhibition on Friday July 8th from 6 – 8pm, at Fleet Gallery, 53 Norman Road, East Sussex, St. Leonards, TN38 0EG
This is the first joint exhibition of Art Work by Thomas Hooper and Jim MacAirt and features new work by these two internationally respected Tattoo Artists. The work shows another side of the arts practice of Thomas and Jim, who both trained as Fine Artists before becoming Tattooists.
Their experience and practice as Fine Artists reflects the range of influences and skills that informs their Tattoo Art. They decided to show their work together at Fleet Gallery to reflect the longstanding creative conversation between them as Artists and friends.
