Minneapolis Tattoo Arts Convention

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.

Semicolon

All the feels around this tattoo!
 
 “A semicolon represents a sentence the author could have ended, but chose not to. That author is you and the sentence is your life.”
 
 Yes this. Kindness is free. Be good to one another. And to yourself.

Tattooing Health and Safety

Spending this snowy Monday training tattoo artists from the Twin Cities and across Minnesota, as well as MN health officials in the Prevention of Disease Transmission in Tattooing. How dedicated are professional tattooists to health and safety? Every person pre registered made it through the snowstorm – two drove three hours in the storm – plus thirteen more registered at the door.

Proud to be a part of a freaking awesome industry!

Ötzi on spring break, part 1

Alright – here’s a little spring break fun. I’ve long been a fan of Ötzi as well as Radio Lab. So it was fun to see the two come together.

Here you go – the story of Ötzi the iceman, dated at 5000BC, covered with more than fifty tattoos – all of which correspond to areas of injury suggesting the tattoos were used as a mode of healing. Check it out. Cool stuff.
