Are You Feeling Purple or Orange

Be careful what you wish for when you ask to see someone’s tattoo. She might ask you if you’re feeling purple or orange before turning her arm to show you the inside.
 
 I did this tattoo twenty years ago – awesome to see it again (and laugh again) this week!

Ötzi the Iceman

Ötzi the Iceman is a 5300 year old corpse discovered in the Swiss Alps in 1991. And he has tattoos (also, coincidentally 5300 years old!).
 
 Ötzi is awesome.
 
 Ötzi’s starring in the Nova episode “Iceman Reborn” tonight on PBS at 8pm (Minneapolis time).

And my speakeasy neighbor comes above ground for one shining moment!
 
 Check out the article in today’s Minneapolis Star Tribune!
 
 “Volstead’s Emporium opened late last year in Minneapolis with no promotion, website or social media listing of its Lyn-Lake area address. Emblematic of the Prohibition era, guests must navigate a dark alley until they stumble upon a door with an eye-level slot, leading to the subterranean sanctuary of red velvet and chandeliers.”

75th Birthday First Tattoo!

What an awesome morning! A first tattoo, on a chaplain, celebrating her 75th birthday. And she rocked it!

One of the best things about tattooing is the wide variety of fantastic people I get to meet and work with every day!

Awesome to see tattoo history represented at the Minneapolis Tattoo Arts Convention! This memorabilia from the collection at the Tattoo-Piercing Museum in Somerset, PA.
 
 I took a class in Tattoo Machine Building from Lyle Tuttle years ago. Top pic shows pieces of Lyle’s from the collection.
