I slide down into a warm burgundy leather couch beside a heated fireplace. In front of me is a mantlepiece covered in trinkets and adorned with the flickering of candle flames. No, I am not in your favourite Granny’s living room. I am in Black Hat Tattoo Parlour.
For those of you who have never had a tattoo done, it’s kind of a big deal. I mean, it’s there forever right? You want to be sure that what you’re getting is really good. But you also want to feel comfortable, and trust the person who is making their mark on your body.
The minute I walk into Black Hat Tattoo Parlour on Parnell Street, I feel welcome. I am here with Lena and Sergy, partners in business – and in real life. Lena is a tall, attractive woman from France, with striking eyes, the color of an iceberg.
