Artist Wanted!


We are missing some life and new energy in the shop so we figured it was time to add to the Conspiracy Inc. family.

I will start by stating something very important:
THIS WILL NOT BE AN APPRENTICESHIP!

Here is a few things we do require from you:

-You must have been tattooing for MIN 3 years in a studio and have shop experience. 
-You have to be able to do clean straight lines and solid colouring...this really shouldn't be necessary to mention but I'm afraid it is. 
-High hygienic standard.
-You have to be able to get your own clients. Conspiracy Inc. is a private studio in the 2nd backyard with no street traffic. This is important! Conspiracy Inc. will of cause blog about you but this is not a springboard to boost your career so getting/bringing your own customers to the shop is a must. 
-We are not looking for some part time tattooer who is traveling half the year. This doesn't mean that you are locked down but we are looking for company, not an empty workstation. So if you have plans to travel the world, then maybe do that first.
-No rockstar attitude, no drama, or giant egos... Jakub and I have enough of that for all of us. 
-You must be able to listen to the epic musical version of War Of The Worlds by Jeff Wayne from 1978 and preferably LOVE it.
If you aren't familiar with this masterpiece then I suggest you look into it before applying for this spot!
-You must be willing and excited to participate in shop events, be it halloween or flash walk in days... even if it requires to be dressed up in silly costumes! So if you take yourself to serious to be a bit childish and dressed up like an idiot, then this isn't the shop for you. 
-You must have a diverse taste in music. Despite popular belief, we do listen to more than just black metal and Bruce Springsteen. 


A few things that will be good to know for you.

We do like to sing and dance along to crazy music. Sometimes it will be metal... sometimes J-pop or Robin or some classic rock... just a little heads up...
We have a big shop with a waiting room, work room, private tattoo room and drawing room. I am hoping that we will be able to have drawing nights or paint nights as a shop thing at least once in a while. I am slowly building a screen printing room and a darkroom for developing photos, and we have a wood shop, that all, will be available for you as well. The goal is to have as many creative possibilities available as possible. So being creative in other areas, than tattooing, is not required but it is appreciated.
I expect everybody in the shop to help out when/if needed. How cheesy it might sound, I want the shop to be a team. If you are just looking for "a workplace" then this is not for you.


How to apply.

I don't consider Facebook or Instagram a portfolio, nor a professional way to apply for a workplace. If you want me to take you serious then show me that you are worth my time. 

If you really want to suck up to the teacher, then send a real application in the mail. That tells me that you put some effort into this and that is always appreciated. 
You can send it to:
Conspiracy Inc.
Hauptstrasse 155, 2. hof
10827 Berlin
Germany

Since I know that it is a lot to ask you can also do it electronically and send a mail with the following:

-A minimum of 10 photos of different tattoos. You can attach a file or folder or attach the photos to the mail. It has to be clear photos without filters and stuff. Instagram photos doesn't count. If you don't have good photos of your work then I suggest you get it.
-Write a little something about yourself. We need to know who we are inviting into our "home". 
-Not required, but if you can add examples of other works of yours, it will be appreciated.
-Where you have you worked? Write a bit about your background. 
- Links to blog or website... noooo, still not interested in your facebook. You can add your instagram name but I prefer a website or blog and consider this more professional. 

Email applications can be send to:
Conspiracyinctattoo@gmail.com
Subject: Artist application 

Since I have gotten many guest spot requests from people who shouldn't even be tattooing, I ask that you take an extra look at your own portfolio and consider if your work is strong enough, to work at Conspiracy Inc. before applying. 
There is always room to grow and become better but I am looking for someone, who can also bring something to the table. 

All applications will eventually get a reply. I will only send a reply, but not a reason for a possible rejection. Don't take it personal. Either you fit in or you don't... or maybe you didn't write a good enough application... so get too it!
Since I don't know how many applications I will receive, I don't know when a final decision will be made, so the position is open until we close it here on the blog.
All contact and applications will be handled with discretion.

We are looking forward to hear from you.

Febuary frenzy

What's up good people of the internet!
How are you? How have you been? What's new with you?
Well, here at the bunker February have finally come and that means that one of my best buddies has finally returned for his annual visit... Mr Electric Pick. He is already booked up for appointments but he did bring some goodies with him for sale. There isn't that much to grab so act fast on this if you want. Shoot him a mail about prices and setting up a time to come grab it.
Electric Pick is also the mastermind behind the "Dirty Secret Club" and rumours has it that there will be a special update session this month where it also will be possible for new members to join. But more about that as we have the plans down. There has even been whispers about a dirty Valentines walk in day... If any one wants to encourage that please let us know in the comments. I can't hear you through the screen. 

What you see is here is what Mr. Electric Pick brought with him.



But Nick is not the only one to visit us this month. The worlds best Dino Baby will be here as well. He will be joining me from the 8th-12th but only have time on the 10th I think so don't sleep on this people. Shoot him a mail about getting your self a sweet tat from this ink wizard!
You can catch him on  Info@themagiclair.com






I myself will be heading back to Bergen and my Let's Buzz family between the 17-20th of February. I am coming back to shoot some bands at Blast fest but I will have time to do a few tattoos in the daytime before the mayhem starts, so if anyone is interested in getting something done while I am in town, send me a mail on Onkelallan@gmail.com
I know I have been back to Bergen a lot but I don't know when I will have time to come back so please don't wait till "Next time".

This is also an ABSOLUTE FINAL CALL for anyone who want to get a black metal inspired tattoo and be a part of the Black Metal book project I am still working on. You can obviously always get a black metal inspired tattoo from me but I am closing the folder for what will make it into the book really really soon. So If you want to get something and be part of this epic book project then send me a mail with your ideas and when you would like to get it done. I have a few openings in febuary and some in march, but after that it is too late. So send me a mail and lets do some evil tattoos! 

A quick reminder that I will be doing walk ups on the upcoming Paris convention between the 4th and 6th of march and at the Brighton convention on the 30th of april- 1st of may.
I will also be back at Inkrat in Tokyo from the 1st-19th of april. To book that contact Hata at inkrat00@yahoo.co.jp

Finally I want to remind you that both Jakub and I are taking appointments from now and some months ahead. Jakub has openings the next few weeks that he would love to fill up so hit him up!

Ok.. gotta go work before seeing ABBATH and BEHEMOTH tonight!!

Join The Newsletter

Hey folks.

Jakub had a great idea... doesn't happen to often but this was one of those good moments.
Specially in these "cancelations times" we are lacking a way to get in touch with you people. It doesn't seem like people are reading the text on instagram that often and Facebook is more and more useless... specially for someone like me who doesn't even have one, so Jakub thought that it was worth a shot to go back to a good old mailing list.
We promise we won't spam you with stupid updates everyday, only when something interesting is up. So join the mailing list/newsletter on the side of the blog... thats right..look to the right from this post and you will see it. Yeah? found it? Gooooood! NOW JOIN!!!

Summertime

Howdy all!
Exciting news to tell you! Pheeeeew!!
First of all, if you havn't already been to the Uncle Allan blog, then you should go there RIGHT now. There is a special offer for bookings in June and July so go check that out. Did I mention... FREE STUFF??? Check it out here!


free stuff.


There is also some exciting news about walk-in days coming up. There is some cool designs to choose from already but I will be working on new designs while waiting for you so there is a chance to get some flash done before anyone else got to see them. Just as soon as they are drawn, they will be ready to get tattooed! So come see me on Saturday (the 20th) from 12:00-17:00 and also monday to Wednesday (22nd-24th) from 12:00-19:00

Should I get fully booked for any of these days I will post it on the blog or on my twitter so you can always check in before coming here. If no one books in for these days it free for all. Just drop by and get tattooed. I hope to get to do some fun cool tattoos!

I have just added a few new originals to the Big Cartel shop so go check them out... and keep an eye on the shop in the near future... there could be prints coming soon... I hope.
www.conspiracyinctattoo.bigcartel.com

I also want to remind you that we got a bunch of cool guests joining us and that there still is some spots available so scroll down to the last post and check them out.

Lastly I want to remind you all, that I have opened up for bookings, for the rest of the year. I have realised that most of you who travels here to get tattooed, needs way more that these two month to book your trips and therefor I won't be using that system anymore...Ohhh well... on to the next.
I have also realised that there should be room for you who just happens to be in Berlin without months of notice. So give it a shot... send me a mail to see if we can move something around and find a spot.

There is a few more things I want to put out there but I am afraid it will have to wait just a few more days... Come back soon, yeah?

Next Batch Of Cool Guests For Ya'll!!

It's a pleasure to announce this next batch of Guests that we have lined up for you all. I hope you won't sleep on these cool cats, so get on it people. Some of them is already getting booked up while I am writing this post so go go go... Book those appointments!

First off we have our regular guest and awesome friend:


June 24th - 27th







To book an appointment email him at 

thevagrantheart@gmail.com


Up next will be a cool guy I had the pleasure of tattooing back in Japan some years ago. It will be fun to have him working with us.


June 30th - July 3rd.






 To book with Scott contact him on 
scottmharrisontattoo@gmail.com

Last one in this batch is a good dude I had the pleasure of tattooing in New York. Gonna be cool to have him with us.


July 14th - 16th






To get an appointment with Kirk email him at 
crownandanchortattoo@gmail.com

We are looking forward to work alongside these guys and hope that we will get to see a lot of new and old customers getting tattooed by these guys while they are here. 

I have been getting a lot of emails about guest spots lately. As much as we love having guests working with us, it is also difficult to have new people we don't know, working here and more so, hard to find customers for them, specially since we are more or less a private studio. So please understand that it might not be possible to get a spot here unless we already know you and if you are able to get your own clients. We love having a busy studio with different artist working with us but we want to make sure that it is a pleasent time for both the guest and us and clients. So please be understanding if we reject your request for a spot here.

There is going to be more cool people visiting later in the year but one thing at the time so you will have to check in again later for more info.

That's it for this time... more soon!

FACEBOOK!

Hey Ya'll!

Thanks to the ever hard working, social media pro, Jakub Settgast, the Conspiracy Inc. now has a working Facebook. Me, Allan, still don't have one and won't get one either so this is the closest you get to have Facebook updates on what is going on. Jakub will post updates about cancelations, guest artists and what else is going on there.
So go follow or "like" or what ever.

Worlds BIGGEST set of flash

So... Lately we have gotten quiet a lot of emails with questions like: "Is it true that this new set of flash from Jakub Settgast is the biggest set of flash ever made?" and "Did Jakub really travel back in time to get these amazing flash sheets as authentic as possible?" and "Is it true that Jakub used real burned Harley Davidson tires for ink making this shit cool set of flash?" and "Does Jakub Settgast have a Bigcartel store where I can spend my money?" and "Will I get more tail if I have this new set of flash hanging on my walls?"
To all of these questions I have to answer... Yes! Yes it is true... except the part about being the biggest set of flash, ever... that might not be true...
But what I have been asked the most has to be "so where can I buy this amazing new flash set from Jakub Settgast?" and yes I do have an answer for that one too.
Right HERE!
... In case you didn't get, that "here" is a link, then here is the address:

www.jakubsettgast.bigcartel.com

Here is a small preview of this old school piece of awesomeness that is the new set of flash from Jakub Settgast.



.... While we are at it... I too have some new stuff on the Conspiracy Inc. Bigcartel. These two naughty girls was supposed to be a part of a Ménege à trois of dirty paintings, a sexual trilogy... or just a series of 3 dirty paintings. Well, he changed his mind so now they are up for grabs.
So get your perv on and go to the webstore... HERE!
... again for the ones who didn't get that "here" is a link, here is the address 

www.conspiracyinctattoo.bigcartel.com


So that sums it up for this blog post. Good night and stay safe out there... and also stay classy... and..
well... see you soon

Bye bye 2014

This is it! 2014... done!! NEXT!!!

There is many things that could be said about 2014 and Conspiracy Inc. but why dwell on the past when there is so many things to look forward to in 2015? 
I do want to thank all the customers who came and got tattooed at Conspiracy, be by the permanent crew or guest artists. Also a huge thanks to the awesome people we have had visiting here and working with us. I hope that 2015 will bring more guests and life to the shop... I already have some good news for you guys later in this post... Be patient. So, Thanks to everybody who visited and supported Conspiracy Inc. and I hope to see you in 2015.

There will be many new and exciting changes in the new year. First of all we have the new kid on the block, Jakub. We are planning on making new Conspiracy history together, just you wait and see!! We will soon reveal some of our plans so stay tuned. 

I wish I could reveal it all right now but everything at the right time so the plans have to stay in my head for a bit longer. 

BUT!!! Guests!! Back to the guests!!! The year hasn't even started yet but so many exciting people are already lined up to greet you in the new year. I hope that you will all come by and see them and get tattooed by them. I am very excited about all the life and buzz there will be in the shop already in the first few months of this new year.

Happy New Year!
