It is now time for another installment of the Tattoo Files series. this time I convinced my friend and co-worker Martin to pose for a couple of portraits and tell us all about his passion for tattoos. We took these photos at lunch time, while hiding in a meeting room. thank goodness no one barged in on us as it would look quite the weird thing to do!
Name, Age, Location:
Martin Barker, 23, Grantham
When did you get your first tattoo and what was it?
When I turned 18 and planned to have my one and only tattoo (That failed) I watched Dead Poets Society and discovered the concept of Carpe Diem! And Seize the day I did 🙂
Which one is your favourite?
The marathon details on my leg, not only because I achieved my aim of running a marathon, but also as it is my own handwriting and so no one else will have that font.
Do you have any that you regret? (If so, why?)
I don’t really regret any as at the time when I got them I know I would have been feeling pumped and so it was worth it for that, but possibly PMA- I’m all for positive mental attitude but I probably could have come up with something a bit more creative.
Any plans for acquiring more art?
After acquiring quite a few quotes I want either an Orangutan under my arm pit swinging from my armpit hair or I will draw a comic book of the highlights of my life.

I love tattoos, this is awesome!! He has some very cool ones too. One of the ideas he plans to do under his arm pit is hysterical, I want to see that if he does it, hahaha!! Happy Friday doll xx
I know! He’s really funny 🙂
What an interesting read. i’m always fascinated by the story behind strangers tattoos and often quiz them when I’m drunk! xxx
Same here, although I tend not to ask 🙂
^^ Vix lozzzz
Like Vix, I always want to know the stories behind them but I don’t want to be too snoopy. I’m really curious to see the marathon tat on his leg. I’m sure you could convince him to take his pants off!
I probably wouldn’t try that in the office- doing these was already a bit naughty hahaha
Cool post. I love his idea of the monkey in the arm pit hair as a next tattoo
Hilarious, isn’t he?
