Made the trip from Boston this past weekend at the 2013 Rhode Island Tattoo Expo. Our 5 year old son won the Punks for a Princess coloring contest on Saturday evening, so yes we brought home some gold!! and Carissa made some fun tattoos!!
We caught up with some friends from Sin Alley, Royal tattoo and holdfast machining. We were also lucky enough to spend some fancy time with Kevin Borowski from Iron Hand Tattoo and the amazingly bearded Ron Henry Wells, And also bumped into the lovely Dia Moeller and black and grey wizard Carl Grace
Carissa made the expo video, look for her at about 18 seconds!
Peep the pics and see you next year!!
Well another tattoo convention in the books! Tattoofest 2013 we came, we tattooed, we came home. It was a great time in the booth with Mark Longnecker and Jimmy South from Endless Summer Tattoo, Kyle Miller from On Point Ink and Chris Slota from Rockabilly Tattoo. Mark took home a trophy with his “only Dave Navarro can judge me” piece and Jimmy South got robbed on tattoo of the day for the skin rip he got on his inner thigh!!! (pic is in the slideshow). Carissa had the honor to sit in Bowery Stan’s chair and get tattooed, it was kinda crazy to get tattooed by Stan with Crazy Philadelphia Eddie Funk looking over his shoulder watching….even crazier when he cleaned it with alcohol!!
We made a bunch of new friends, picked up some new books and bought some new prints to proudly display in the shop. The show featured suspension shows, classic cars, live music, vendors and artists from all over….see you next year!!
Carissa will be headed down to Tampa next week for the Tattoofest tattoo convention. The show starts on Thursday April 11th and runs til Sunday April 14th. Looks like it’s gonna be a good show. We’ll be in the booth with Mark Longnecker and the Endless Summer crew! If you’re in the area and would like to get tattooed hit us up or swing by the booth
February’s been a pretty busy month tattooing, even though Boston has been pretty much buried in snow. Appointments are booking up fast, so get it in soon so you can show off your new ink come the warm summer months!!
Also feel free to write us in for the Boston Phoenix’s best of 2013 contest, thanks in advance!!
Here’s some of recent tattoos
Well, we survived/ate our way through the great blizzard of 2013. We broke out our shovels and forks, piled the snow and stuffed our faces. We surfed some big icy waves when we could finally get on the road. So we’re back to regular operating hours and regular eating practices (the 3 day long eating binge is over!) Here are a few pics from the storm – mostly from our neighborhood because we couldn’t get out!! but hey our hometown made the front page of the new york times
Happy belated new year all! We’re kickin off the new year on the right foot. Just got back to Boston from Puerto Rico, saw our friends at Senzala Tattoo and La Ocho Surf. Enjoyed some sunshine, rum drinks and good food.
