Peter Sheringham

Owner, Body Piercer and Scarifcation Artist

Liked the business so much he bought it. After starting to pierce in 1992, Pete then went on to specialise in genital piercing, surface piercing, ear projects and to practise scarification and some other heavier mods. Pete also attended the APP conference in the late 90’s and hopes one day to be able to go back again. His motto is “you learn something new everyday”.

Ran Maclurkin, The Grim Ruiner tattooist.

Ran Maclurkin


The Grim Ruiner

Is it actually anything? A cog in your head, tattooed eyes, a broken back repaired with steel and bone. It has little care from the mundane, yet upmost sympathy for the fallen. Death is to be run from, for as long as one can run. An average fabricator, a competent mechanic, willing to just fucking do it, very little time for that which it does not like, New is generally shit, old is to be respected and life is a single shot of alcohol.

Enjoy it, and fuck your fame, its all in your mind.

God is a dream created through fear.

Satan is an amusing idea.
