TATTOOS, PHOTOS, FRIENDS…

An end and a huge beginning….

….As the grand weekend comes to a close, There is one man to thank for bringing us together from far and wide; But it is what we have been doing all these years that serves us also as a binder. This is just a fraction of the Tattoo community who were here in amsterdam this weekend, but hopefully through spreading the word by any way possible, this museum could be a success and grow in the years to come.

And a couple more things….

A lot of work has been completed in record time but yesterday was the most amazingly beautiful day here, raising spirits to complete the task at hand. You can view a live streaming of this event at http://www.amsterdamtattoomuseum.com/grand-opening/…

Michel…

 17 years ago I met Michel on my first trip to Amsterdam. I worked with him at the shop and he helped get accustomed to the customs being it was my first time to europe. He has followed his dream since and now has an amazing shop of tribal antiquities that parallels most museums. http://www.michelthieme.com…

 

 

Afternoon One…

After a not so painful flight, I was greeted by Danny Dringenberg and Friend at the airport. Always a good feeling seeing a familiar face far from home. Got right to it and visited what has been dubbed the ” TATTICAN” also known as the Amsterdam Tattoo museum. There is already a bunch of people hanging out and the work is nonstop. More to come…

Here we go again….

Almost 17 years ago I got to work in Amsterdam with Henk Shiffmacher and a whole array of characters who were to be my friends from that point on. I have been back since but this time its to celebrate the opening of The Amsterdam Tattoo Museum. I will be reporting on this as the week goes on but you will be able to see my photo-documentary in Tattoo Life and Lastsparrow.com. The date is the 5th of November. http://www.amsterdamtattoomuseum.com is the site…
