What up y’all, for those who don’t know who I am, my name is Thomas Morgan from HB Tattoo in Southern California. As most of you already know, on November 21st the Amsterdam Tattoo Museum was taken away from all of us, doors locked forbidding access and collection taken hostage! The Amsterdam Tattoo Museum is the first museum that is totally dedicated to tattooing. It shows the world’s largest tattoo collection, collected by Henk (Hanky Panky) Schiffmacher. Fighting tooth and nail along side of Henk is his lovely wife Louise ‘The Queen’ Schiffmacher. In the midst of their year-long battle to save the Museum, Louise recently got news that she has liver cancer and needs a transplant. (Letter from Louise: http://ow.ly/gQj7f.) Now they need our support more than ever. That’s where we come in! We have recently teamed up with an Non-Profit Foundation based here in Huntington Beach, CA called “Fxck Cancer” a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Together, I think all of us in the tattoo community, along with Fxck Cancer can raise the funds needed to help out Louise, Henk and the Foundation… (more…)
I will be spending some time with some of my good friends including Chris Nunez and Ross Nagle in the next few weeks. First I’m paying a short visit to my dear friends at Allstar Ink Tattoo in Limerick City Ireland. The only other shop I would visit besides Classic Ink in Dublin….
…Then we are off to Notting Hill London where our good friend Ami James will be opening his Love Hate Social Club Tattoo Parlor.
I will be working the opening week with Ross Nagle, Ami James, Chris Nunez, Tommy Montoya, Grant Cobb and Charlie Roberts. It’s going to be a mad house. Make sure you get booking your appointments to avoid disappointment. Also there will be some of the best tattooers from around the globe rotating through the shop including all from above plus Freddy Corbin, Greg Christian, Darren Brass, BJ Betts, Marco Serio and plenty more.

This year I made it back to London, I travelled with my good friend Forrest, owner of Cobra Custom Tattoo in Plymouth MA. We had a short trip but we most certainly made the best of it , and enjoyed every minute of it. It was good to be in a far off place and be surrounded with so many loved ones. I cant thank tattooing enough for all it has given me. Also special thanks to Mo and all his great staff at The Family Business for the hospitality.
I’ll be hanging at the london tattoo convention a bit this weekend, Im really looking forward to seeing some of my favorite people / tattooers from all over the world. #JET$ET
The Peoples court is the original tv reality show, It started in 1981 showing actual cases with actual parties involved. The first reality court show that did not use actors. There has been a few judges on this show but I did not start watching the show till maybe 2002 or so and Judge Marilyn Milian has been there ever since.
I am not a big tv watcher at all these days, I spend at the very most 2 hours a week or so in front of the tube, other then that I Netflix at my drawing table. I believe life is for the living not the watching. But I do still DVR The Peoples Court, partly because I think Judge Milian is the wonderful, and partly because I enjoy learning the basic laws involved with small claims. I had the opportunity to to sit in on a taping a couple months back, I had such a great time talking with the judge and all the people behind the scenes. Special thanks to Matt for the warm hospitality.
When I was in Germany last week I had the pleasure of spending some time with my dear friends Nancy and Marco. Also meeting their friend Robin de Goede, who took these really great photos. *the hands in the one photo, are Nancy’s and I got to do a very special tattoo on one of them “Bratt Pack” in honor of her special relationship between Marco Bratt and herself. Im honored to have done this tattoo and to call both of them friends.
