Shane Burnell is a feast of visual intrigue. His tattoo-covered body has flung him onto the covers of magazines and the pages of fashion editorials world wide. I use the word flung with intent – that’s rather how it’s been for Shane over the past few months.

I don’t think anyone, let alone he, could have imagined how quickly he’d become celebrated, or that the years of leers would so rapidly turn to cheers! Beneath the rather intimidating wrapping is a really likeable guy, unaffected by his rise in popularity – a man comfortable in his own skin. I like this most about him. Perhaps then, there is more to tattoos than meets the eye? Over a cyber coffee I get to know more about more about the man behind the tats.
