Following up from yestermorn’s ink-staining, a sneak pic of a Rabbit Skull. One of 4 intricate fillers translated from my sketches and tattooed by the talented @mosleytattoos… still fresh but healing up nicely… Time for a moisturise :D #whitagram #rabbit #hare #hannahmosley #sketch #skull #skeleton #macabre #ink #tattoo
Stoked to start the week having some of my recent imaginings translated and tattooed by a fresh new artist… the lovely Hannah Mosley. Hannah is based out of Middleton Tattoo Studio and highly recommended both as an inker and illustrator… Photos to follow shortly :D x #whitagram #tattoo #needles #preparation #ink #starvinartist #stencil #hannahmosley
Rhino Beetle sketch from earlier in the week… Continuing the illustrative homage and mini-series of beautiful beasties and comely creepy crawlies. #whitagram #beetle #rhino #bugslife #sketch #pencil #orchid #tattoo #studio #starvinartist
Stoked with a new print picked up  last eve… Tuff Tatts by Ben Burford… Snatched at the preview of the Meat Collective’s new exhibition, continuing at The Print Room, a modestly inviting venue, until 22 Nov… Take a peek for some tasty treats. #whitagram #tattoo #meatcollective #theprintroom #printfetish #flash #ink #vintage
Assembling work too large to pack in a suitcase, ahead of an upcoming exhibition in Santiago de Compostela… Discovered this guy is twice as large as my usual luggage. Seems I’ll be spending some pennies on a courier for my works. #whitagram #biggie #skull #diadelosmuertos #death #macabre #engraving #lasercut #skeleton #tattoo #starvinartist
My original beard/moustache oil from Chin and Tonic has arrived… So now I can smooth out and hopefully control my wayward curls, before heading unto the high seas. #whitagram #popeye #chinandtonic #starvinartist #tattoo
… putting my coiffeuring skills to good use, I’ve inadvertently become my Grandpapa’s barber of choice… not a bad gig, apart from the insistence of a manicure too :D
Current holder of the sexiest shelf in the studio… #whitagram #highheels #posca #ink #studio #tattoo  #starvinartist

I don’t really get anything since I don’t work in a store lol

Preparing a selection of stock for upcoming fairs and pop-up shops, I came across an assemblage of  forgotten works and curiosities… Including these Ghost Face Beard Brooches, showcasing The Chin Curtain, made famous by Abraham Lincoln.  #whitagram #brooch #badge #chincurtain #lincoln #engraving #wood #curiosity #tattoo #starvinartist
An ancient Egyptian favourite, the Scarab Beetle, inked and watercoloured… available soon in the Starvin Online Store, as part of a series of fresh prints. #whitagram #beetle #bugslife #scarab #ink #pencil #watercolour #orchid #printfetish #tattoo #starvinartist
Spruced up my artist bio, some what, ahead of some upcoming events, shows and appearances…
“A self taught and cultivated lone wolf, Starvin was stranded as a young child, in a Northern wilderness. Arming himself with a sharpened pencil and set of Biro’s, he escaped into his imagination… an enchantingly macabre and mystical landscape.
In 2005, he returned from wandering the realms of his mind, to develop a creative practice and philosophical approach to working. Harnessing all he had learnt, he began joining the dots between the fields of illustration, design, installation, tattoo art and jewellery/wearable apparel.”
So, less about me… 1st up is the Wellington Mill Paint Jam, in Manchester on Sunday the 28th of September… what promises to be a prodigious day of live art, music, crafts stalls, scoffing tasty treats and quaffing summer beverages.
The event aims to bring together a vibrant and diverse collection of people from around Manchester as well as from up and down the country… including some good folk i’ll be gassing with… AKSE P19,  JAY SHARPLES, MODERATE TWAT KISSA, and BARNEY IBBOTSON… just to name a few of the talent on board :D
Scarab Beetle sketch… A continuation of sketching up beetles for use in upcoming tattoo’s and a possible future series of prints. #whitagram #scarab #beetle #bugslife #sketch #pencil #tattoo #starvinartist
