We did our usual tampa routine – lunch at the “the Pub“, check into the hotel then off to the convention to get set up
The Convention was alot of fun – tattooing, music, food and suspension shows. Got tattooed by Bowery Stan Moskowitz – got to hang with him and Crazy Philadelpia Eddie….Heard some amazingly funny stories – would’ve loved to be a fly on the wall during their haydays!! 1st night of the Siesta Inn Tiki Bar after party was dj’d by the one and only DJ Longneck! We spent most of the nights after the convention hanging with friends Tony Olivas, Loko T, Phillip and Crew from Lucky Draw Tattoo. The stories from the tiki bar will be told for many years to come!!
We missed our flight on Sunday Night and because of the tornado warnings on Saturday we couldn’t get out until tuesday morning, so we drove out to Clearwater and got a room at the Safety Harbor Resort and Spa. We checked out the spa as well as the Tequila Sunrises and Rum Runners at their Tiki Bar…Yes!!
It’s been a crazy month or so around here. Shanghai Kate Hellenbrand Visited the shop in Boston for a week and a half. We were blessed to have her, the knowledge and history that’s in her head is absolutely mind blowing – Everything from Sailor Jerry, Ed Hardy, Mike Malone to the ancient history of tattooing. We got a private edition of the voodoo to vogue lecture that she had given at Columbia University
Kate is a icon in the tattoo world – She’s been tattooing since 1972 and has worked alongside some of the most notable names in tattooing such as Sailor Jerry Collins, Ed Hardy and Jack Rudy. Wear a piece of history!! Appointments are booking up fast, contact the shop for more info or to get on the appointment list

If you missed the weenie roast art show you missed a great time – here are some pics as a consolation though! countdown is on for next year!! We had some great submissions all of which are still hanging in the shop, so get to east boston to check out some of these masterpieces and have one of our tattooers make a nice tattoo on you!!
We’d like to thank everyone who made it to the show last week – it would’ve been pretty boring without everyone!! And also a HUGE thanks to Zac @ narragansett, Laura @ vitamin water and the fine people @ Kayem and Market Basket.
It’s summer time in Boston people and we’re putting down out tattoo machines and celebrating with a weiner roast / art show – “art of the weiner”. Narragansett and Vitamin Water have been kind enough to provide us with some fine beverages, so join us for a couple of dogs and some good times on Saturday August 4th from 7-10pm. (21+ id’s will be checked, so bring em!!)
Last June, Wave n’ Pave opened it doors to tattoo in East Boston and is still offering all the same surf and skate goods as it did in winthrop. We finally got around to out grand opening extravaganza! Dj’s Makyra and Ryan Joseph provided the soundtrack and Narragansett beer provided the refreshments. Thank you to all our friends that came out for the night, was a blast!
Wish we could do it every weekend!!
