From tramp stamps to tribal tatts, Pete Wicks explores tattoos and what they represent in people’s lives. In this podcast, Pete speaks to people with extreme tattoos, celebrities with remarkable ink stories and the artists behind the craft.

Enjoying the variety of guests
Quite different to other podcasts I listen to but I do like Pete and I’m glad he’s started this podcast, interesting to hear different stories from a wide variety of guests. Hopefully gets another series !
Listened to this today for the first time as I’ve followed Lauren for a while. Really, really enjoyed it. What a natural conversation, there are so many interviewers that sound like they are trying so hard but Pete has a really lovely style and sounds genuinely interested in his guests. Am going to go back and listen to all the other episodes. Also made me feel better about my level of swearing 😂
Season 2 is a beaut
Pete is a natural at this and love the start of the new season. Hilarious
