Happy to say the blog is back after a christmas/new years/convention break!
Well, you regulars won’t see the difference as I still don’t update as often as I could. The reason for that is mostly that it takes some time and that is something I have been lacking since my son was born (that’s my own choice, try to spend all extra time I can find with him and Catrine), and the fact that I don’t post funny clips and stuff like that. I hope that you appreciate the no-nonsense, just work thing I have going here. If you don’t , let me know. Another factor is that I like to post finished work and that takes a while to actually get finished… as everyone who started a big project knows :). This will be a bit of a mega-post (like I have done a lot of lately).
I was off to Telford, UK for Tattoo Freeze. I couldn’t stand the thought of being away from Valter and the best of girlfriends (who accept me getting her and our baby on flights and trains across Europe for my work ) so I dragged them along, as well as my sister and her boyfriend.
This time I’m not going to make a detailed review of the convention (which was a really good organized convention, just as Tattoo Jam.)
Tattooed Kathleen from Leeds, very nice person, who didn’t get any chance reading her book as I mumbled through the hard questions of life with an emphasis of how she had planned to survive a zombie ap0calypse.
Oh, and she’s actually the girl who sent me an e-mail that was lost, which I talked about a couple of posts back.
I was amazed by the fact that I have the best kid in the world. We have it real easy to be honest, and a bit hesitating to get another one because he’s so damned easy-going. Woke him up at 05.00 and put in on a twelve hour journey and he was all smiles all the way, except when not being able to run around in the plane. And we arrived back home at 01.30 and he was just happy all the way home as well (but the happiest part was when he woke up at home the next day, in exctasy).
I’ll be back in the Uk in the end of april, London for the http://www.greatbritishtattooshow.com/ . Drop me an email if you want to book an appointment!
Some Tattoos from back home:
Chrull did a portrait of Emperor Norton of the USA and the protector of Mexico. Google it!
And one new project, The Labyrinth Snake:
It’s also a cover-up, but still a lot of work left.
A note to all the good people sending me e-mails about booking an appointment. You got loads of good ideas that get me really excited… but the best way is to roll by the shop/studio and just book an appointment.
It’s still in the beginning of the year so there’s openings in the schedule :). It tend’s to clog up in just a couple of weeks time and I don’t want to miss out on the ideas you got!
Take care and welcome to Gallon Tattoo!
