      Valerie Vargas Bonus: A Visit with Lal Hardy

      November 7, 2012

      By VICE Staff

      When we filmed the Valerie Vargas Tattoo Age series, she took us to meet the legendary English tattooer Lal Hardy. Lal has been tattooing since 1975 and is generally considered to be one of the people who elevated tattooing in the UK in the 1980s. Lal is also an amazing storyteller, and he entertained us for quite some time at his shop, New Wave Tattoo Studio. We were so enamored with Lal's stories that we kinda got off track and ended up talking more about English tattoo history than Ms. Vargas. Oh well. What you have here is just a snippet of our conversation with Lal that will hopefully turn into something bigger in the future. Enjoy.
