Paisley-based tattoo artist Mark Worst has announced a special flash tattoo charity event, giving customers the opportunity to have a tattoo drawn by him, and all funds being donated to charity.

Mark will be working at Dusk and Rebirth studios in Glasgow on Saturday 13th August and the profits will be donated to SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health).

One of Scotland’s leading graffiti artists, Mark is renowned across the country and beyond for his striking large scale mural work – many of which can be seen dotted around his hometown of Paisley.

Inspired by the decorative floral compositions of Art Nouveau and intense imagery of Japanese tattoo and manga culture, his bold, illustrative style has had a direct impact on his tattoo work, rendering them as instantly recognisable as his larger scale pieces.

Mark’s early years as an artist were spent refining his draughtsmanship which can be seen in his complex but precise compositions and delicate use of whip shading which leaves a gorgeously intricate texture in the detail of his tattoos. Since beginning his career over five years ago, Mark’s hugely popular tattoos have seen him hold guest spots in studios across London, Derry and Rotterdam with more international work on the horizon.

Mark said: “I decided to do some fundraising for a brilliant charity and help raise awareness around the topic of mental health. Mental health is something we all deal with every day but we don’t necessarily talk about. SAMH is a really amazing charity that offers support and resources for people with mental health issues in communities all around Scotland.”

Mark will be tattooing people from 12pm on Saturday 13th August with a choice of pre-drawn flash tattoos at Dusk and Rebirth Tattoo Glasgow, 1st floor, 26 Springfield Court, Glasgow, G1 3DQ.

Booking is required and all of the money raised will go to SAMH. If you would like more information, pricing information and bookings, email: markworstbooking@gmail.com.
