Mark Fretwell,

 

Following your blatant disregard for the tattoo industry that you claim to love with the events surrounding TV “celebrity” Jodie Marsh and your tattoo convention, many of us within the industry are here to speak out. Having someone who exploits  and disrespects tattooing being a guest at your convention makes a mockery out of tattooing. It shows the inexperienced that the precious craft which we fight to keep respectable is something which anyone can walk into and be respected for. It makes tattooing into more of a ‘scene’ than a craft, and it is something which anyone re-sending this does not agree with. You are contributing to the shallow and greedy people who are willingly killing the tattoo industry from the inside. We, as a community, implore you to reconsider your choice of judges at future conventions.

Re-post, re-post, re-post. Or forever hold your peace, deserter!
