Prick

Tattooist to Amy Winehouse, Alexander McQueen and half of east London talks Queercore and Catholicism

See all Doc X >

This week's Doc X sees Jake Narang of Vile Films meet with fine artist and tattooist to the stars Henry Hate. Starting out life in Orange County, LA under religious family values, Hate's homosexuality clashed decisively with his upbringing and after leaving the army he sought refuge in Queercore: a vibrant and unabashed gay punk scene. Now Hate runs Prick Tattoo in London, achieving notoriety through his tattoos with high profile clients including the late Amy Winehouse and Alexander McQueen (rumour has it that Mcqueen would send his to be dumped boyfriends to get tattoed by Henry just before they'd get dumped).
