May 4, 2011 marked another milestone in the tattooing world with True Tattoo’s Grand Re-opening in Hollywood, Ca. Oliver Peck bought True Tattoo from long time friend Clay Decker January 1st this year, and in true Pecker fashion decided it was time for a party!!! [Video on expanded page] (more…)
To continue with my list of highlights from the SF show… It’s always a treat seeing Thom deVita and, as usual, finding him in the hotel lobby every morning by 7a.m. (He and I are commonly the only people stirring at this hour). Sitting with Thom and listening to a few of his stories each morning was a real treat.
The first morning I asked him what he was doing…”Are you people-watching?”
“Lady-watching,” he said, with a wry grin.
DeVita also sold some of his art (which we will soon be featuring on the TAM site) and he did several tattoos on some devoted tattooers over the weekend. (It was the first time I’d seen him wear gloves!)
