Shanghai Kate Hellenbrand | Guest Tattoo Artist | February 2014

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
