We just returned from the 10th annual Amsterdam International Tattoo Convention, it was quite a trip. Got to Work alongside some of the best tattooers Europe has to offer and see how they do a tattoo convention on the other side of the pond. Rode the trains, trams, metros and buses…saw the van gogh museum, red light district, ate cheese saw a man light off fireworks from his butthole, saw windmills and visited some bars and coffee shops……if you thought las vegas was the city of sin…it aint got shit on Amsterdam!! A good trip and experience…i definately wasn’t in Boston anymore
Ever Dream of getting a traditional hand tapped Samoan tatau, but the trip to Samoa is just impossible. NOW is your chance…..from Nov 13th until Nov 20th, Samoan Matai and Tatau master Sulu’ape Pili Mo’o will be in Boston tattooing at Wave n’ Pave. He will be offering both traditional Samoan hand tapped tattoos, as well as Marquesean style made by machine. You DO NOT want to miss this amazing unique experience, not only for Boston or Massachusetts, but for the entire east coast!! This will book fast!! call or email the shop email@example.com or 617 418 5115
Pili Mo’o‘ was trained by the One” who will radically changed his life, the worldwide known Samoan Tatau Master, recognized as “The master of the Masters” “Sua Sulu’ape Paulo II” who took him under his wing almost 5 years. He taught him not only how to use the traditional tools, but how to build them, and the Philosophy of what he used to call “His Way of Life”. He gave to Mo’o the deepest Spirit of this philosophy until his tragic end in 1999. Transforming Mo’o as his “last pupil” , making him the keeper of the tools and philosophy, he asked him to continue the way he opened. Mo’o was accepting endless invitations to tattoo conventions and keeping alive this ancestral art, honoring his mission to move it all over the world still keeping in mind his “father’s” request to change his name from Mo’o to “Pili Mo’o” : the “Samoan Lizard”…
Pili Mo’o will not fail with the promises made to his “Father” and will not stop traveling. Having attended more than 300 tattoo conventions, disclosing the art of Tatau, delighting the public of 5 continents with this art, and giving seminars, he received other prestigious awards, defending with fervor and faith, the Spirit of his “Father’s Way of Life”, which now became his own, and his mission, Pili Mo’o was called to Samoa in 2001 by Sua Sulu’ape A. Petelo, now chief of the Sulu’ape Family to proudly receive the title of : “te Tufunga ta Tatau Sulu’ape Pili Mo’o”. Also being accepted and recognized as a Samoan Matai and Tatau master.

Left our comfort zone in Boston and took a little trip to New York City this week to meet up with Shanghai Kate at Sacred Tattoo. We had the pleasure to get tattooed by Kate and get to spend some quality time with her. For those of you who don’t know, Kate’s been tattooing since 1972 and has not only worked with most of the legends in the tattoo world, but is included in that list of legends. Kate has a vast knowledge of tattooing – historical and technical and we were lucky enough to have her share some that with us. The shop she was working in – Sacred Tattoo – located between chinatown and soho was an absolutely amazing shop. If you’re ever in NYC i’d definately recommend checking it out! Another thing we’d definately recommend to check out would be Tacombi in nolita….some pretty dope taco’s!!
