Mehdi continued on the flower sleeve with the skull he is working on.
He got a lot of shading done this session, wich realy makes the whole thing pop out. Click on it for a bigger picture.

Back To Daily Life

Just another day at the office for us. More tattoos to be done. More drawings to be drawn. More coffee to be had.

And a little piece to be added to a backpiece.

London Bridge Is Faling Down

Just a little update to let you guys know, we are back and better than ever!

With a super hi-tech special undercover top secret never seen before ultimate action sticker picture.
We built a Bunker tower in England next to the Big Ben. Ours was bigger than theirs.

We made a couple of sticker pictures ourselves whilst in England, and if you ask me, I’m in the lead!
So be quick and send in your pictures, I’ll put up a special picture post sometime this week.

100 And Counting

Today is the 100th post!

I must admit it’s quite a challenge, to come up with something new and exciting to write about, everyday. I haven’t completely nailed that yet, but I’m well on my way. At least I have been able to post every day, wich is an accomplishment by itself if you ask me.
I’ll give the next 100 posts a 110%, if you guys promise to check back 110 times a day, and tell everybody you know about the blog.
Sounds like a good deal if you ask me.

But for now we are off to the London Tattoo Convention. We will be back next tuesday. See you guys then.

Keep sending in those sticker pictures.

They’re Here

Our friend Merlijn Zeeders came by today.
Not only is he a friend of ours, he is also our graphic designer and a graphic artist himself.
He is having an exposition of his digital artwork in Tilburg from the 7th to the 30th of September. Go and check it out.

We got one of the prints from his expo, and he came by to sign it today.
The cool thing about the print is that it has a lot of pictures from in and around Breda and even a couple from our tattoo shop incorporated into the final design.
There are still some limited edition prints available of his work, if you are interested you can contact him.
You can find more information about it on his site MadreDios.

Another thing that might be mention worthy, is that he didn’t only come by to sign the picture, he also brought a little present with him.
That’s right! The stickers are back, so let’s get busy vandalising stuff.
Tomorrow is the last day this week you can come by and get some stickers from the shop. Seeing that we are heading to London on friday. However I’ll make sure to drop of a couple of them at Bonk, Epic and Britain, so you can still pick them up when we are out of town.
Don’t forget to send in pictures of all your sticker escapades. There will probably be a big sticker update as soon as we get back from London this weekend.

Tomorrow is the last blog update for this week, but it’s a very special one, so don’t forget to check it out.

Love Hate Or Hate Love

I don’t know what it is with Willem and feet, but he seems to tattoo an awful lot of them if you ask me.
It’s starting to creep me out.
But then again, even if he is a creepy, old, weirdo, bearded foot lover, he still makes them look good.
This foot is one part of a pair of feet, amazing isn’t it? The guy actually has two feet, he’s a freak of nature.

The cool thing about it is that Willem is also going to do his other foot with a love theme, but more on that when we get there.
For now, have fun! Enjoy the weekend, and tell your mom you love her.

Quickie

A small update on the Garuda back Mehdi is working on.

And just to keep you guys interested and coming back, I will do a full information-education post on Garuda on the next update of this back. Just to get all of you schooled in tattoo symbolism, and symbolism in general.

Ying To The Yang

Mehdi started a new shoulder/quarter-sleeve/chestpiece or whatever you want to call it.

This is the result of the progress so far, just the lines for today. He’ll be back soon, to get the rest done.
The guy wanted something to represent balance, with a dragon. So eventually he got himself two dragons so they balance each other out. I’ll try to get some more background info about it on the next post.

Shame On You

I got this picture in the mail today.
It’s a great picture and great idea, sticking the bunker sticker on the photograph so that it looks as if the guy is wearing a Bunker shirt. Only thing is, it’s stuck on a public photo exposition going on here in Breda.

Too bad I will have to disqualify this one aswell. I don’t think it is a good idea to go out and vandalize public art with our stickers. So I’m sorry Dennis, seems like luck is not on your side with this contest.

A few tips for the next try: Don’t vandalize art. Don’t abuse animals. And stick on your stickers properly.

I got news today that the new stickers will be in by the end of this week, or otherwise the beginning of next week

The Bold And The Beautiful

Willem and Roger are back in town. Wich is great and all, but I didn’t know what to put on the blog.

So I took a picture of our soap dispenser, this is where we wash our hands, sixty times a day. That little picture of Roger is what still makes it worth while every day. Time and time again.
Washing your hands must be one of the most boring things you can do at the shop, so to make it all that little bit more exciting, I took the liberty of placing a semi-nude picture of Roger in the soap dispenser, for our entertainment, whilst washing up.
