AN AWARD-winning Boston tattooist has added three more accolades to his collection.

Mark Frost, 33, scooped the hat-trick at Milton Keynes Tattoo Convention – beating 90 other UK artists on the day.

The self-taught tattooist scooped awards in the categories of best tribal, for his Polynesian-style sleeves; best small black and grey, for a portrait of Hannibal Lector; and best large black and grey – for a huge, intricate Mayan calendar on someone’s back.

Mark went down to the convention with fellow Boston tattooist Ronnie Goddard, whose studio Blood Sweat and Tears Mark works from.

Mark said: “It was a good day and we’ve both been invited back next year as guests to tattoo at the convention as our work stood out from the rest.”

However, the three awards – specially-marked skateboards – were particulary difficult for Mark to bring home.

“I went down to the convention on my motorbike,” he said. “So I had a bit of difficulty getting the awards back home and had to try to fit them into my bag.”
