Hi All,

The filmed interview of Jessie that I produced several years ago, had to be postponed due to work commitments.

However, the interview with Jessie, will be released in November 2011, on MNVDISCS.

We shall make the promo` readily available (should anyone like to view it), via the Tattoo News Forum site.

If you would like any further info` you can either contact me or Barry Levene 3sixtypr@gmx.com

Once again. apologies for the delay, but It is well worth the wait.

Hi guys , haven't the time right now , but I can answer most questions about jessie knight . I'm her great great nephew and I knew her most of my life until she passed away In 1997. I spent many hours with jessie and I loved all of her past life storys and they still give me great pleasure today.
My mother and I still have in our possession all of her designs, original equipment including inks and needles and machines that have been made from door bells !!! . We also have many photos and a huge canvas curtain with her fathers (sailor knight) designs.
We very much would like to exhibit these for who would like to see them, but were not sure how to go about letting people know.

Any suggestions or ideas would be greatly welcome.

You can reach me on NeilHT69@googlemail.com

wow, never knew all this existed - haven't searched for a while, jessie knight was my great great aunt, my family still owns the 'trunk' belonging to jessie and her dad containing their drawings and machines etc, i have some family photos and her hand written life story, a few poems etc
Thank-you all for all this 'extra' information on jess, i only knew her as an old lady when i was a little girl, apart from what i know from research.
Will Scally - i would die to see that filmed interview :)

Petula - how are we related?? my grandfather was jessie's nephew, son of leonard collison knight (named after their father, who taught jessie to tattoo in aldershot)

I'd like to know how I can reply to the various "E" mails concerning Jessie Knight the tatoo lady of Portsmouth,England. Her bio says she quit tatooing in 1963 but like I said before I knew her in 1965 and she was still doing her art work on bodies and she had a really steady hand for tatooing. Before she did my eagle on my chest in 1965 she lit a match and showed my the flame and I asked her why she was doing this and she told me I do this to show you that I have a steady hand even at my age. She never used a plastic format like they did in Canada because the tatoo on my chest was done free hand which is quite amazing. I thank you all in advance for letting me tell a little bit about Jesse Knight and the pleasure it gave me to have known her.

[quote author="Lionel" date=1213115675]This is Jessie Knights studio in Portsmouth, not sure of date, but according to Joe Cleverly she was in Portsmouth during the mid 1950's

Anyone in Portsmouth know the address for this shop?

I interviewed Jessie a few years ago, have several hours of
filmed content. I shall be releasing a documentary on Tattooing
very soon. Also have interviews Jock of Kings Cross and many
others.

I'm trying to find out how I can get more information on Jessie Knight the female tattoo artist from the sixties in Portsmouth England? I served in the Canadian Navy on board HMCS Provider and in 1965 Jessie had a studio that we (Canadian) called the Hole in the Wall. She did a tattoo of an Eagle on my chest in November 1965. I still have it on my chest to this day (French Humor) Thanking anyone in advance who can help me out. Thank You Richard Parent Cobble Hill British Columbia, Canada
