Sitting - Another popular style is a sand-bag type decoration, where the gonk’s body is weighed down with sand so they can sit stably on a shelf or table, where their legs dangle freely over the side.

The pair had their inks done on their forearms and underneath the gonk image, the best friends had the word ‘Bestie’ inked, to really commemorate their friendship. You can buy them to decorate your Christmas tree, to sit on shelves, windowsills and fireplaces, you can even buy Gonk-themed bedsheets. Often the decorative Gonks have wire inside their hats, meaning you can pose them. Aftercare can't be avoided for any type of tattoo (you're putting ink into your skin here people!), so you should keep your new tattoo well moisturised with a fragrance-free, hydrating lotion, such as the Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion, avoid immersing the newly-inked area in water and keep it well away from the sun. So basically no sun, no sea, and definitely no dodgy tattoos on your hols. Ornaments - Looking for something with a lot of class? You can find some elegant gonk statues around. These will look stunning placed on your mantlepiece or a coffee table! In Scandinavian folklore, they’re known as Tomte, and they protect children and homes from misfortune.A Gonk is essentially a Christmassy gnome-type creature; they have big beards, big hats, big bottoms, and you can’t see their facial features, apart from often a big nose. The blonde-haired beauty was so pleased with her unique inking that she has even made it her profile picture on the social media platform. Kate, popularly known as ‘The Gonk Lady’ to her customers, lovingly puts together and brings to life the Gonks, which are all custom crafted with a very specific style you will only discover here. For those who might be considering getting a hand-poked tattoo, we've got the low-down on what to expect when booking your first appointment. What are hand-poked tattoos?

What’s a Gonk?” This question came from the rest of the What’s The Best team when I excitedly told them that I’d found a fellow Gonkaholic in TV star Stacey Solomon. I couldn’t believe no one I worked with knew what a Gonk was. For me, Gonks have been a major feature in my Christmas decorations for many years.

The Best Gonks

Rather than using an electrically-powered machine (aka a tattoo gun), the design is applied dot by dot using a single needle to push the ink under the skin. Slower than your average tattoo, yes, but also a great technique for achieving extremely delicate designs. Unsurprisingly, the loud buzzing noise and look of a tattoo gun can be enough to put people off, which is where hand-poked tattoos gain an advantage. The process is a lot calmer and quieter, and generally makes the experience less uncomfortable. Life Size - These creatures are always three feet in the lore at most. You can find some standing life size gonks to place around your home, and they’ll look fabulous stood either side of a door or your television. Lots of people tagged their best friends and encouraged them to join in and get matching gonk tattoos too. The Scandinavian novelty creatures have become a staple Christmas decoration in recent years and are clearly here to stay, but while many people will decorate their homes with gonks, it appears that two gonk-obsessed friends have gone one step further.

Everybody is different when it comes to pain, but from my experience the majority of people I've tattooed say it’s less painful than a machine tattoo,' says Neutral. How long do hand-poked tattoos last? Debbie shared two images of the tattoos - one of her new inking and then one of her and her best friend Sarah holding up their matching inks. Our Farmhouse Gonks, Seasonal Gonks and Themed Gonks are carefully handcrafted and sent from a small garden workshop in Norwich, Norfolk to their new homes.They are considered to be the Nordic version of Santa Claus and one gonk fan, Debbie Fox, revealed that she loves gonks so much that her and her best friend got matching gonks tattooed on their arms. Just a couple of short years ago, she only had one style, a Bee gonk she made for a friend. Today she has more than 20 different designs and themes to select from. ……and expanding. So what is the difference between a Gonk and a Gnome? Tree Decorations - Threaded with a string, they’ll look wonderfully whimsical hanging from a branch on your Christmas tree, where they can watch over the presents until the big day. An old Nordic tradition involves leaving out a bowl of porridge during the winter solstice so that the gonk may feast and join in the festivities. As Christmas became more prominent across Scandinavia, these stories and traditions stayed with the people, and gonks eventually came to be paired with Christmas. A Gonk is For Life, Not Just for Christmas
