Skinzophrenic’s Iraq Shop Featured in Inked Australia

Since Peter Masters opened his Iraq Skinzophrenic Studio it has received international attention.  After all, a shop on the frontline doesn’t crop up everyday.  Peter is an excellent photographer by trade and through his travels and connections it occurred to him to establish a shop where his main customers are soldiers wishing to find expression and release through the art form of tattooing.  Read more about Skinzophrenic Here

One Dark and Stormy Sunday, Skinzophrenic Battled the Odds Against Cancer

One stormy Sunday in Hereford city centre, Skinzophrenic on West Street grabbed the cancer bull by the horns and fought the mighty beast straight on.

Zac Morris, who has trained under the watchful eye of Peter Masters seasoned tattooists, in particular Jon Harper, honoured their close and very young friend Ben Wooles, who recently was diagnosed with cancer, in hopes of raising money for Benny’s Fund, created to raise money for his treatment,  by tattooing the cancer ribbon on the brave souls who dared withstand the site of Zac in his pants…yes I did say pants!  Bless – he is a young fit lad – surely the ladies did not mind.

Well hope turned to success, as the lines of people gathered into the shop with minds and hearts determined to support this cause for one personal reason or another by donating £20 a head; soon Benny’s Fund saw the numbers rising.  How noble…but also well…hilarious.  Sometimes it is better to laugh in the face of cancer then it is to let it beat you, and that is just what Skinzophrenic did.

But let us not forget, cancer is a very frightening, and very expensive obstacle in  many people’s lives…so let us not stop the donations to Benny’s Fund here.  This young lad is in need of many more donations to reach his goal.  Make a donation to BENNYS FUND HERE https://www.gofundme.com/h677ujek

Time for a chest piece of Majora’s mask.  Just another day for Italian guest tattooist Simone and perhaps one to remember for this customer of Skinzophrenic who is braving the pain for what will no doubt be a fabulous piece.

Skinzphrenic The Best Hereford Tattoo ShopLocated in the busy hub that is West Street in Hereford City Centre, the new independent quarter for the consumer with a passion for individuality and Foodie culture, you will find the Skinzophrenic Tattoo Shop established by world-class tattooist and photographer, Peter Masters.

The second longest running tattoo shop in Hereford, Skinzophrenic has built its impeccable reputation on Peter’s commitment to his craft by producing high quality work in a professional environment.

Hereford City Centric will be following Peter Masters and his team of highly skilled tattooists behind the scenes to educate and inform the community about this unique art form.  After all, you have to wear your tattoos for the rest of your life.  Of course, if you are looking for a cover up Skinzophrenic is the place to go.

Any tattooist who is lucky enough to become a member of Peter’s team may find themselves on a plane to Iraq, where he has a second tattoo shop, and the majority of his clientele are our heroes fighting on the frontline.  What a most honourable position to be in Peter!

This of course, has allowed him the opportunity to capture these soldiers in their element with his camera building an amazing portfolio few can parallel.  Add the long line of tattooists he has mentored over 15 years to his CV, and the fact that he is the only studio in the city to be insured and licensed to take on students for work experience in his shop, and you suddenly realize Peter is building a legacy in the city of Hereford.

When you meet him, his energy and charisma instantly draw you in; all part of the Skinzophrenic experience.  The shop branding and interior eminate his passion for the Red Hot Chili Peppers (one of my very faves too).  It has an edgy, cool interior and you can assure that you won’t find a ‘Scratcher’ in the place.  He adheres to strict health codes, and keeps on top of his industry.

Having several tattooists on the floor at all times, who specialize in their own tattoo techniques and use the appropriate tools to ensure authenticity, you can come in and request an appointment and know you will walk out ready to show your work off to the world.

There is an endless list of tattoo styles that Skinzophrenic tattoo artists are not afraid to take on such as, neo traditional, trash polka, realism, black and white, portraits, maori, custom and on and on.  If they feel they cannot not take on a commission they will be honest, rather than put you in a position where you are stuck with something you are unhappy with for the rest of your life.  NO egos here.

In this coming series we will get to know the individual artists and their work, take it as a guide for your next tattoo…you will be inspired and an expert by then.

*Also look forward to our series on Blackfriars Tattoo which will be situated at 3 Maylord Orchard in the city centre.  Jon Harper is an exceptional seasoned tattoo artist working for Skinzophrenic, who is now branching off with Peter’s blessing to establish his own unique brand of tattooing and put  his stamp on Hereford’s local tattoo culture.  All very exciting . *
