Prick Magazine, ‘the World’s first free tattoo and piercing lifestyle magazine’, is running a photo feature on the tattoos of London’s cycle couriers. The portraits were taken earlier this year by Roxy Erickson. You can find a sneak preview on Roxy’s Flickr.

And while I am plugging things, can I point out that there are still some large Moving Target shirts left in stock? One of each of green, burgundy and brown. £12 inc p & p in the UK.

  1. I was looking at that photoset last night. Lot of ink there innit.

  8. Back to the tattoos.

    Anna reckons that the girls have better taste in tats than the boys. What do you think?


    — Bill    26 April 2008, 19:53    #
  9. tats are personal, so it is pretty immpossible to say who has better taste. But there is some lovely ink there!!

  17. Jesus!
    How many lenses did the snapper get through on that project?
    I hope the scrap metal merchant who purchased the bolts out of some of those necks paid a fair price.
    I think one or two of you might have finished on the podium in a Brad Pitt lookalike contest….the one John Prescott won.
    Ugggerrrleee baaastaaardsss!

  20. Note: Prick is run by an ex-messenger and his girlfriend. They lived here in London for a bit as well, thus the interest.
