There are hundreds of companies out there that put some of these slogans on their t-shirts; some are all over tattoo studios walls, others are floating around as meme’s on the web but some of these we came up with ourselves. Which ones do you vote for?   Tattoos – Size Does Matter It’s all about the pain, the ink is just a souvenir! Sorry, I only like boys with tattoo’s Yes they hurt, no I will not regret them The world is divided into two kinds of people: those who have tattoos, and those who are afraid of people with tattoos. Show me a man with a tattoo and I’ll show you a man with an interesting past. Good tattoos aren’t cheap and cheap tattoos aren’t good. There’s no crying in tattooing To Ink or not to Ink..stupid question Diamonds were a girls best friend, until tattoos. Tattooed & Employed Ink is thicker than blood Tattoos are permanent and a lifelong commitment, the same as Tattoo is not a four letter word Tattoos are forever Love may not last forever but tattoos do I am wearable art If the body is a temple, why not decorate the walls? I am thankful for the freedom to get the tattoos that express me and the ability to ignore those who judge me by them No Regrets No pain no gain My tattoos aren’t nearly as offensive as your staring People with tattoos are way more fun to see naked Yes I ...

THE 2015 BAY AREA TATTOO CONVENTION The 2015 Bay Area Tattoo Convention (BATC) will take place Halloween weekend (Friday October 30, Saturday October 31 and Sunday November 1st) at the SFO Hyatt Regency. Hotel conventions are always fun and a halloween weekend will be especially cool! This will be the eleventh year and as usual, features a stellar line up of invite only, world renowned tattooers. This show was started and is still run by Roman (45s Forever Harley Shop, Strong Tattoo and Strong Shirt Printing) and Taki (State of Grace Tattoo) and keeps tattooing and tattooers as the main attraction. The BATC features NO piercing, bands, celebrity appearances or contests- we are purely a TATTOO SHOW.

Success is not what you think it is, by Dan Henk

Screen shot 2015-10-19 at 1.12.13 PM

One of the most common questions I get, is people asking how to get ahead. To become well known. How to “make it”. The vast majority seem to think there’s a simple trick to it. An avenue you take, a person you need to know, that sort of thing.   Well there is, but getting that important connection requires much more heart and work than most people realize. And, to be honest, more than most people have. Sure, there are a few people like Paris Hilton, that just luck into their fame and fortune. But I wouldn’t trade places with Paris for all her money. Those who get money and fame by just stumbling into it, produce nothing of value and are eventually reviled for just existing. Chris Rock made a few comments in one of his stand ups that is actually a much wiser and deeper observation than might first appear. He talks about how there is a difference between a job, and a career. A job you work on within parameters. You only commit regimented hours to it, and step out side of the box exclusively during work time, and never very far. A career keeps you awake at night. You find yourself pouring in crazy hours for no money, and only a possible chance of a return. And you fail. A lot. But you pick yourself up, determined to put even more into the next project. Frank Frazetta is one of my favorite painters. He is loaded ... Read More »
