Tom Pardoe, 55

“I was in my 40s, and in a place of complacency. I’d lost myself, I’d lost my voice, and I wasn’t happy. A month before my partner came to me and said, ‘I don’t want to be in this relationship anymore,’ I’d sought out a tattoo artist with an idea for an arm tattoo. I wanted it to be shedding the skin of my old life and welcoming the new. When it was done, I’d made the transformation from somebody who’s been shattered by the end of a 10-year relationship to somebody who was single, vibrant and back on his feet.”
