Red Box in real life

Hey guys, it's me again, but don't worry, i'm not here to blog about booking or tattoos or boring crap like that so soon.
No, i have more exciting news... or maybe not news if you already follow the blog of one Mr. Electric Pick, but in case you don't (seriously though, why don't you?), here's the exciting news:
Nick's already famous web comic Red Box has been made into an actual book!
You know, the kind you can sit and read with a nice cup of tea, or give to people for Christmas.
Yeah, that kind!

The book is 240 pages of hard cover goodness, with an extra 35-ish pages of extra arty awesomeness by Jesse Smith, Ben Newman, Davee Blows, Edek, Tom Haubrick, Uncle Allan and Honkey Kong.
You can get all that for 465 Hong Kong dollars, which converts roughly into 60 us dollars, 47 euro, and 38 uk pounds, and you can order via
Go to the Electric Plog to read more and see a preview of this beauty!

Booking info, and hellooo cold and wet Copenhagen!

Hi there, we're back from Japan!
Sorry for not posting much while we were over there, but we rarely had internet access, so i figured i might as well wait. But if you wanna see what we've been up to, check out my blog and Allan's photo blog, they have a few stories.
Allan did some awesome tattoos at Inkrat, most of which you can see on his instagram, and we both got our tattoos finished by Shige, which of course was awesome, but also a little sad, cause we've been enjoying going to Yellow Blaze to get tattooed for quite a few years now.
Who knows, maybe we'll get tattooed there again in the future? I hope so!
We also had some rad sightseeing days, and got to hang out with a bunch of our favorite people, so we pretty much had the best trip ever, like we always do.
We miss you Japan!!! (Sorry about that little outburst, but it's very cold and gray here in Cph already!)

We only got back Friday night, but we're already busy packing.
Moving to Berlin in a few weeks, remember?
Yeah, kind of a lot to do before that!
So far we're working on the living room at home... damn, we got a lot of stuff, but i'm sure anyone who've seen our shop is completely unsurprised by that, am i right?

So, about Berlin...
As i mentioned in an earlier post, we're gonna be booking a few clients in mid-December, just so Allan doesn't forget how to tattoo while we build our new shop!
So if you wanna get tattooed sometime between the 10th and 20th of December IN BERLIN (sorry for cap'ing out there, but i don't wanna risk getting email about booking in Copenhagen!), send me an email ( and i'll see what i can do.
People on the waiting list, and clients with pieces already in progress, are first served of course, and we'd prefer large one-shots that can be finished in 4-7 hours.
We will not be in Berlin at all between Christmas and New Years, so again, this is only for mid-December.

As of January, we'll be back to booking from the waiting list, so if you're already on there, get ready to receive an email about an early 2013 appointment.
And for those who want to be on the waiting list, i have just decided that it will open in January.
There, done, decided, start thinking of clever ideas!

Ok, i think that's it for now.
I will update the faq soon with our new address and directions and all that, so you won't get lost trying to find us in an actual big city!
But seriously, we won't be harder to find than we are now, so you're good.

Halloween, a follow up post

Oh hi there!
Sorry i haven't gotten around to posting about Halloween until now, but i haven't had much time.
The day after Halloween we had to clean the shop, and pack for Japan, and the day after that, well, we were off to Japan.
And when we got here, and got settled into our old apartment, we realized that this particular apartment doesn't have wifi, and the ancient router won't communicate with Allan's macbook cause it's "too new". Seriously, that's what the company told us... it's not their product that's too old, no, no, ours is too new, obviously!
Oh, Japan, not nearly as technologically advanced as the world wants you to be...
Anyway, today i brought the computer to work, so i could finally post some silly photos and maybe Skype with my dog later!

So, Halloween!
It didn't seem nearly as packed as last year, but we had some good people drop by and the guys did some fun tattoos, so it turned out pretty awesome anyway, and we're definitely still planning on sticking to the tradition, so a Berlin edition will happen next year for sure.
We had some people in pretty amazing costumes show up and even though not all of them ended up getting tattooed, we very much appreciated them taking the time to come have fun with us. Yeah, that goes for the people without costumes too!
Our friend Sussi who baked us an amazing Halloween cake was especially awesome, and she had at least dressed up her kid, and that totally counts!
Davee aka Giant Cockroach had a pretty bad cold, so unfortunately he had to crawl on back to his hotel early, but the rest of us hung in there and stayed until around 2 am i think.

Sorry if i'm not making much sense, but i have a cold, so my brain is at, like, 70%... max.
Anyay, super fun day and i gotta say, being dressed as animals? Best idea ever!
That bear costume is so comfortable, i totally wanted to wear it the next day too... why can't i be a bear every day?

Hmmm, that yellow looked better in the photo app... sorry about that...

(1. Spider cake 2. Tattooing in costume all day! 3. Little Nemi got a tattoo that matched her mom's 4. Our air band works even better when we're in costume!)

Allan's pumpkin carving skills has somehow improved since last year!?

A few of the tattoos of the day:

Ok, that's it for now, hopefully i'll be able to do a bit of Japan blogging before we leave, cause i doubt there'll be much time for blogging once we're back in Denmark.
Yeah, in case you forgot, we're still moving to Berlin, so the last two weeks of November will be all about packing, packing and some more packing, so if you want to see us before we leave, you can find us either at the shop or at home, putting shit in boxes!
