Tattoo Nation Movie Viewing | Shanghai Kate Hellenbrand | Boston Tattoo Shop

On Friday February 21st we’ll be having a Tattoo Nation Movie viewing at the shop hosted by one of the movies stars and guest artist for the week Shanghai Kate Hellenbrand. We will start at 7pm and there will be beverages and snacks served. After the movie Kate will give her lecture “from voodoo to vogue”.


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!!
