David Shrigley: 'With a cookery show I can deal with eating and killing'

"It's weird, really weird actually," says David Shrigley, sitting in his studio at home in Glasgow. The 43-year-old artist is attempting to explain a recent trend where people are having his crudely rendered, darkly funny drawings tattooed on their bodies and sending him pictures. He uploaded some on to his website, only for more snaps to come in. Then, earlier this month, he spent a day in a shop window in Liverpool scribbling directly on willing subjects with a sterile pen – free of charge, no design repeated. They could then cross the road to a tattoo parlour and have it inked in for good. The Guardian
