Stewart making neon art

Neon School student Stewart makes waves at Fishtail Neon

Stewart Francis impresario and founder of Tattoo Workshop came on the Neon Workshop last month.

Stewart spent two days creating his own Japanese wave design in warm white tubing. The wave crest was – obviously – stylised according to the artist. Every piece of art that leaves Fishtail Neon is unique.

At the end of the course Stuart invited Fishtail Neon’s Andy Doig a chance to learn how to tattoo. So now we just need to find a guinea pig model. Drop us an email if you are free (and brave).
