The Official International Talk Like a Pirate Day Web Site for the UK!. Officially recognised by the founders of this the greatest and grandest day in the pirate calendar, Cap’n Slappy and Ol’ Chumbucket themselves!
This year they are raising money for Autism Charities in the UK.
My name is Helen and I am a badass pirate with a passion for live music, playing Saxophone, classic cars, fitness and food! I’ve been an Oxford resident all my life, I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else! I love going on adventures but I always seem to return to the city of dreaming spires…
I've always been interested in art, and had a natural ability in drawing but was never sure what to do with my artistic flair – until the day I went in for my first tattoo, just a few days after my 18th birthday. From the moment I sat down in the chair and started watching the tattoo artist etch away my chosen design, I was completely fascinated! This sparked my interest in the whole process of tattooing – from the designing of custom artwork, to learning the skills needed to execute a good quality tattoo.
The idea of creating permanent artwork for people that lasts a lifetime is what caught my eye. That’s when I knew that this was the career I wanted to pursue.
I love doing pattern work/mandalas as they’re one of my personal interests. And colour work – the brighter, the better. I can’t really describe my style as I’m still trying to define it, but I particularly enjoy floral work, and anything with a good bit of detail. I also love taking on black and grey realism tattoos.
If you have any ideas that you want to discuss, feel free to send me a message. I’m always more than happy to help!
