I have been pretty quiet since august 2011. Had a few trips out of the country, UK, Rome, Japan... With the holidays and the new shop plans I have literally been absent from the world wide web aside from an occasional instagram pic or my daughters posting merchandise on or web site. I want to say thank you to everyone that chose my art in any form over the holidays and recent months. I am grateful and honored every time an order comes through for a print, shirt, poster, book, dvd... I know there are millions of products out there for people to spend their hard earned money on. I also know that the world is full of amazing artists and all kinds of talent so any time mine is chosen by anyone, it’s an incredible honor.
I also need to apologize to a few out there whose orders came late, damaged or otherwise ended up as an unpleasant experience. I am truly sorry. When I started selling things other than tattoos I didn’t realize how many aspects there are that can go wrong. Orders getting missed, lost, etc. Thank you all for your patience.
I am partnering with Off the Map Tattoo, Easthampton MA over the next couple months to become the pacific northwest’s Off the Map Tattoo Studio. We have a great lineup of artists scheduled and I’m so stoked to bring artists to our area from all over. My current co-tattooers, Mike and Jen Godfrey are planning on relocating to Huntington Beach CA soon and I was going to move to a private studio until I went to Rome for the Worldwide Tattoo Conference and talked to Gabe Ripley from Off the Map. I have heard crazy rumors that I have stopped tattooing, I’m moving, I’m only painting... None of which are true. I love tattooing, and I will tattoo as long as I can. I have no plans of moving, retiring or anything of the sort.
Jen Godfrey is still tattooing at the studio, Mike Godfrey is building machines, and tattooing by appointment at the studio and also in southern California. We also have Minneapolis visiting atist, Shawn Hebrank here for the next couple months. He is available for walk ins and by appointment through March.
Our grand opening party is planned for the first friday in March. Make sure to come by for that. I will be on the road quite a bit this spring. Milan in February, Japan in March and Australia in april.
I just want to let you all in on what’s going on. I’m hoping and planning on a good year in 2012.
