I’m not a big TV watcher these days, but I’m beginning to value a little time to just shut off and relax. I’ve gotten into a couple shows, one of them being Game Of Thrones on HBO, I always say “if you liked Gladiator or Braveheart you’ll love this show”. If you have not seen this show yet, lucky you because you can watch all 2 seasons that are waiting for you. (more…)

Attention all tattooers: Dan Dringenberg had approximately 20 machines stolen recently in the San Francisco area. Here is a list of all the machines with descriptions and their numbers.
