Amsterdam Tattoo Museum SOS

November 27th, 2012 | Posted by admin in Events | Friends | Tattoo - (Comments Off)

The past week we all started seeing a SOS signal  from our family at the Amsterdam Tattoo Museum all over the main social media sites; Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook wondering how we can help.  For those of you that are not familiar with the Amsterdam Tattoo Museum, it is the first museum that is totally dedicated to tattooing. It shows the world’s largest Tattoo collection, collected by Henk ‘Hanky Panky’ Schiffmacher.   I was fortunate enough to be there for the grand opening last year in November, I was blown away when I arrived and at that moment I walked in the museum I felt it’s relevance for us proud tattooers, collectors, and tattoo culture novices alike.   They have had some issues keeping it open during its first year here do to some tricky partnership arrangements and financial burdens.  At this moment the museum is in fear of being shout down as it has been forcefully closed.  Please do anything you can to help, even if that just spreading the word.  “it is our future, and our future is not worth anything without our past” -Hank S

Rock of Ages Tattoo -A Timeless Classic

The Rock of Ages is one of my favorite classic tattoo images.  I was very fortunate to be able to do this one on my friend Yanni Vera,  he is a really good tattooer and a great person.  It is always a honor to tattoo another tattooer but it is even more meaningful tattooing a tattooer who is a friend.   (more…)

Statute of Liberty Pin Up Girl Tattoo

September 25th, 2012 | Posted by admin in Tattoo - (Comments Off)

This was fun tattoo, on a friendly Australian man who was a tattoo collector and was traveling the states for the first time with his wife.  He wanted a regular Statue of Liberty at first but after showing him this Pin Up Statue of liberty drawing, he fortunately had a change of heart.  Thanks for letting us do our thing with your idea, I know we were both happy with the results.

Clipper Ship Shin Tattoo Done at Wooster Street NYC

September 14th, 2012 | Posted by admin in Tattoo - (Comments Off)

People come into our shop Wooster St Social Club/Ny Ink all day long for little trinkets and small souvenir tattoos, which is fine and all, and honestly I have no problem doing them all day.  But the magic really happens when a customer comes in for a nice tattoo like this.  A good idea and a open mind.  Why would you have Jesse James build you a scooter when he’s a super sick custom bike builder, do you get my point?

Pin Ups are Always a Good Idea for a Tattoo

August 28th, 2012 | Posted by admin in Tattoo | Uncategorized - (Comments Off)

pin-up girl, also known as a pin-up model, is a model whose mass produced  pictures see wide appeal as popular culture . Pin-ups are intended for informal display, e.g. meant to be “pinned-up” on a wall. Pin-up girls may be glamor models, fashion models, or actresses. ”Pin Up“.    This tattooed was directly inspired buy the great american Pin Up artist Gil Elvgren.  I generally prefer to tattoo pin ups just a tad bit more traditionally then this, but this is a good middle ground, as super fine-line pin ups don’t hold the test of time as well as the clean bold classic and timeless traditional style one do.
