Never drink lager - bitter or cider my tipple - or a nice Appleton Rum will do
When we used Jacks back in 69 /70 he had a tiny studio in the back yard of a shop with the entrance right onto the street in a road off Plumstead Road Woolwich just before ‘Sams’ the ex army surplus store and the covered market. I remember now that he was going to move down towards the ferry but we had started using Harry Potters tattoo parlour at Gravesend.
Jacks small studio used to have a row of old cinema seats and you could probably only get around 6 customers squashed in. Those days we were only 15 to 17 years olds and the greasers were 25 years plus so you always felt intimidated and had to watch what you said so as not to offend them as they were always mob handed. But as i said we never had any trouble with them.
Where else but here would you be able to reminisce about a tattoo shop you used over 40 years ago. I am surprised Jack is still about – he must be eightyish now or maybe he just seemed older to us back then
I am just down the road at Dartford so I am know the Circus Tavern. I remember it was very popular in the 70s as an alternative to going to the West End to see live shows/cabaret etc The last time I was there was in 1997 and saw Roy Chubby Brown – very good and a full house
