Amsterdam Tattoo Museum

“The Book of Lucky” by Lucky Bastard In the beginning there was the Red Light… In 1998, I took my first trip to Amsterdam to try and sit-in at the infamous Hanky Panky Tattoo. I was told by others that had worked for Hanky (Henk Schiffmacher) that it was not possible to get someone to vouch for you, or to call ahead to test the waters. You just had to meet Henk face-to-face, and hope he liked what you were doing. Not just artistically, but most importantly personality-wise… Read More »

New Amsterdam Tattoo Museum to Open on Schedule

new-amsterdam-museum-1

By Danny Boy (A letter to Crash) Just wanted to let you and your readers know where we are at with the museum. We got 12 days left and going into the last round. This week should be pretty hectic, but that’s how we like it. The permanent exhibitions are just about finished as far as painters and carpenters go. Henk is working around the clock, painting away, having meetings, interviews, barking at everyone, overseeing some 50 people with the help of Annemarie Beers and Almar, still squeezing in some tattoos here and there, and still showing up in the mornings with new ideas and drawings of rooms and exhibitions he had made the night before. And all this is for you, tattoo lovers of the world… Read More »

Fear and Tattooing in Las Vegas…

By John Niederkorn Las Vegas… Home of the perpetual Affliction t-shirt and unnecessary plastic surgery… Wait. Do I really wanna go down this road? Do I really wanna start like this? Well, let’s start again… Vegas; it’s as if Hollywood, Times Square and Wrigleyville all had a fat overpriced tourist baby! There, that’s better… When Kent called me and said, “Hey, do you wanna go to Vegas for a week?” I cringed… and thought, “Wait until he sees those god damn bats!” There is no doubt that a week in Vegas would be just short of some kinda sick, demented self-suicide with a blackout blizzard of shame setting its course, heading straight for me… no stopping it, no preparation could help me weather that storm. Buy the ticket, take the ride… Let’s just hope I make it to the Mirage Hotel and Casino before those god damn bats do… Read More »

Fresno Tattoo Convention: On the Road in California

fresno-1

By John This post will be much like the Fresno convention, short and sweet! The Fresno convention is one of those rare two-day  shows that has all the talent and pageantry of a three-day convention, without the Friday blues that many of us are accustomed to.  There are very few shows where you don’t hear at least one person say, “Friday was slow… I’ll kill it on Saturday.” So Fresno just cuts out the Friday complaints and gets right to it on Saturday… [Video on expanded page] Read More »

Motor City Tattoo Expo: On the Road in Detroit

motor-city-2

By John The Motor City Tattoo Expo holds a special place in my heart. This convention (four years ago) was the very first convention I worked for Tattoo Artist Magazine. I had no clue what I was doing! Crash mostly abandoned me that first year, like a newborn gazelle, I was thrown to the “tat con” wolves and had to get on my feet and start running. But I guess there’s no better way to figure out how to survive than sink or swim… Read More »
