He talks a little bit about the pressure he feels to do cover-ups. In a photo caption, Tommy wrote: “Sometimes the small tattoos are really fun to do.

“Sometimes if I feel the pressure to do a cover I stop and tell myself “I don’t feel pressure, cause pressure’s for tires!

“Ross Nagle told me that years ago and it stuck.”

Most of his work includes cover-ups, and it’s clearly well-known around the world. J Henderson from Liverpool FC went to Tommy for some ink!
