Welcome to PakEarn.com (Facebook Photo Posting Jobs)
I was originally from Mayfield near Ashbourne, Derbyshire. I moved to South Gloucestershire in 1995. I completed my first tattoo in 1998, at the time I was still working but spending all of my spare time painting, drawing and tattooing. Right from the start I felt a true passion for body art and realised what an awesome responsibility and a real honour for me that people would show an incredible amount of trust and let me tattoo them. In the beginning I learned the profession alone. After visiting several conventions and watching well known artists and how they were working, what techniques and what equipment they were using. All this helped to accelerate the learning process.
Two years later I served an apprenticeship at the Skin Art Studios in Bristol for two years. Three years after that I moved back to Derby and opened Inka Tattoos in 2005. Since then I have hugely enjoyed creating body art for my clients and can't imagine doing anything else.
People often ask me what style of art work I prefer doing. There are certain types of body art I like seeing but I cannot describe which discipline I prefer tattooing. As you can see from the art in the gallery I am not committed to any trend and like doing any kind of style. I prefer working to customer demands and mental content as it is more satisfying bringing people's ideas to skin. I consider all of my body art to be equally important and are all prepared and designed as if it was for me.
A huge thanks to everyone who has helped me along the way, especially to my wife Michelle, for her understanding of the long hours and a demanding work load for my dedication and passion in Tattooing and Body art.
And with that statement*, Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic introduces what is claimed to be the world's first interactive biography app now available (in English) for the iPad. Based around his best-selling book, aptly titled "I am Zlatan," the app includes the full text of his story (some fantastic, Guardiola-bashing excerpts here), as well as an impressive number of images and videos all presented in a unique and visually pleasing interface at the price of $18.99 (£13.49/€14.99).
Having bought the app, I can say that it truly is impressive and endlessly entertaining (both intentionally and unintentionally). It features Zlatan's video breakdowns of some of his greatest goals ("The journalists said I was shouting, 'Zlatan, Zlatan!' But that's not true. I was yelling, 'Showtime, showtime!'"), an interactive map spotted with stories of Zlatan's travels, and, in a rare non-Zlatan moment, a stop-motion study of Retired Ronaldo's technique (IamZlatan.com has a full preview).
One of the very best features of the app, however, is Zlatan's explanation of all his tattoos. There are two interactive pages devoted to his tattoos (one for the front and one for the back) and some of his statements on their meaning are just delightfully Zlatan...
-On the barely legible "ZLATAN" tattoo in white ink across his stomach: "My first tattoo was a white line on my belly. You could hardly see it. It was mostly a test."
-On the "Only God can judge me" text along the left side of his toreso: "The words are from a song by the rapper, Tupac. 'They could write whatever they wanted in the papers. Scream anything at all from the stands. They still couldn't get at me. Only God could judge me! I liked that.'"
-On the red dragon along the right side of his toreso: "In Japanese culture, the dragon represents a warrior, and I was a warrior."
-On the Japanese koi on his left shoulder: "A carp, the fish that swims against the current."
-On the five faces of Buddha in the center of his back: "They stand for the five elements, water, earth, fire, and so on."
Those last two elements are tricky to remember. Even for Zlatan.
