Rose Tattoos Never Get Old

The best thing about a rose tattoo is that they never get old, they are timeless.  Rose tattoos are some of my personal favorites.   This is a pic of some roses I freehanded on a guy from Germany years back and he came into the shop the other day at Wooster I took this pic.   A lot of tattoos that some people do these days look real nice and fancy in the picture day of,  but none of the new school no outline crap will maintain design integrity as nice as tattoo style tattoos.

Angel Tattoo On The Ribcage

Angel Tattoo

Today I tattooed this really nice kids ribcage,  the tattoo took about 4 and a 1/2 hours. but was a tough one,  any time your taking non stop pain for hours on end you really start to test the limitations of your tolerance.  Luckily we made it though.  Cool tattoo. “Count your blessings, not your burdens”

Tattoo Forrest Real Tattooing By A Master Craftsman

December 6th, 2012 | Posted by admin in Events | Friends | Tattoo - (Comments Off)

The tattooing is a very special unique community, tattooing is a job but it also is very much a lifestyle and a passion.  Our friend Forrest and when I say “Our” I mean the real tattoo community, and when I say “real tattoo community” I mean the tattooers that have given their lives to tattooing completely.   Yes, the final product, the tattoo is very important as the client will wear it for the rest of his/ her life,  but part of the tattoo is the energy the soul put into it by the artist.  Now if you sell a product that you don’t believe in then you are doing a great injustice to the craft of tattooing to the soul of tattooing and in turn the tattoos you do on people.  You are not and will not be recognized as a tattooer if you do tattoos and do not have any on you.  A bald wig salesman, a virgin sex therapist, a toothless dentist, a atheist priest…   Mahatma Gandhi said it best  “To believe in something, and not live it is dishonest”

Support the the real tattoo community not some culture vultures like the jamies on inkmaster.

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
