The funeral of a Gravesend biker and tattooist will take place tomorrow, with between 100 and 1,000 bikers expected to attend.

Bikers from as far as Holland could turn up to say goodbye to Gordon Hamilton, 53, who is better known as Jok.

His friend, Adrian Walker, said: “Jok lived in Gravesend most of his life after moving down here with his family from Scotland.

“He went to St George’s school in Northfleet, that’s where I met him. He was a jolly good chap, and he’ll be missed by a lot of people.”

The tattooist has worked in Welling’s Demon Inkorporation, and Gravesend’s Screaming Skull.

The funeral procession will begin at 1.30pm at the Co-op Funeralcare in the town. It will then walk through the town centre, and finish at Gravesend Crematorium at 2pm, where the service will begin.

Those who wish to can attend the wake at The Three Doors afterwards.
