Gotta have it

Allan worked on a british client until midnight yesterday, so by the time we made it to the book launch party, it was closed, probably had been for a while.
It's the story of our lives, always missing out on the fun stuff because of work.
What can i say, Allan loves tattooing and we both love happy clients.
But the trip down to the gallery wasn't a complete waste, we had a nice walk and talk with Wookie and Louise, and look what we found when we got there!

A giant poster of the handsome Uncle Allan!
We didn't wanna steal this one, but we totally need to get our hands on one of those
Yes, we brought the dog along, he's still too sick to be home alone

I hope we'll get to see the book soon, we keep hearing good stuff about it from people who have seen it.

Cute overload

Allan did this tattoo yesterday of Mathildas guinea pig.
I know it's up on his blog too, but i decided it was cute enough to post twice!

This is what the best guinea pig ever (or so we're told) really looks like
Oh, and i was sitting around googling squirrels (i had a reason, i don't just google random animals... ok, maybe i do that too...) when i came across these guys on Cute Overload!

Danish Tattooing by Jon Nordstrøm (with partial Uncle A nudity)

If you follow the other blog you may remember this post i did a while back about this tattoo book Allan was gonna be in.
So there's this book, Danish Tattooing, and Allan's in it.
Ok, seriously, here's what it's all about (official press release from the publisher):

"Danish Tattooing by Jon Nordstrøm

New book offers unique insight into a colourful tradition from 1895 onwards and portrays the strong, Danish characters behind body art.
”Danish Tattooing” traces the visual development from 1895 up to the present day, with the Golden Age of the 1960s particularly rich on fascinating tales from a rough scene. The book is full of anecdotes and historical photographs of larger-than-life characters and tattooing hotspots: the raw Nyhavn, where sailors and drunk Swedes got their tattoos, and the even rougher Istedgade, which developed into a new tattooing hub in the 1980s. Actually, Copenhagen was the heart and soul of tattooing in Scandinavia until the mid-seventies.
The book returns to the present by portraying 14 working tattoo artists, along with their distinctive artwork – from classic designs to the latest graffiti and hip-hop styles. This is the new generation that will trace the next chapters in the history of Danish tattooing.
The book is in both Danish and English and will be released by Nordstroms Forlag on August 29. In connection with the release, pictures from the book will be exhibited at the KPH-Volume gallery, 80-82 Enghavevej, Copenhagen SV. Open: Saturday, August 29 to Monday, August 31.
The book will be available in Danish bookstores, at most tattoo conventions or through Gentleman’s Tattoo Flash."

The sweet cover
The handsomest man in the whole land
It's full of awesome machine goodness...
... Danish tattoo history...
... and rare flash
Oh, and me and Lucifer are in it too (i look stupid, but Lucifer is a natural!)

If you're in Copenhagen you should go check out the exhibition this weekend.
If you're not from around here, you can still pick up the book at a convention or through the good people at Gentleman’s Tattoo Flash.
As the press release says, it's in both Danish and English, so in addition to looking at the pretty pictures you'll be able to read it too.

They're very wise, you know

Newest addition to our collection of crap: the business card owl!
And while we're on the subject of owls, Lewis did this the other day
Also in the news; our wounded mascot is back at work, but it'll be a while before he back to being his usual charming and mobile self

E.P. NEWS >>>>

Look at him go!

Lewis worked at the shop today.
His first tattoo here was on your friend Christel whose sole purpose in life seems to be to get tattoos that'll make me jealous.
Well, mission accomplished.

The Rockblomst shreds!
Looking at this guy makes me happy

More guest artist awesomeness tomorrow!

"I hope you like huge trees..."

Sanna had another session on her backpiece on friday.
This one was kind of a short one, but a good one nonetheless.


To be continued in about a month!

It deserved a picture post

Thanks again, Kajsa!

Like cake, in Cph today?

If you're one of the few people not out protesting last nights acts of police brutality, like we would be if we weren't working, come by for a piece of Kajsa's cake of icing-doom!

It's awesome and we're totally gonna eat it all, but we could probably use some help.
Hurry and we'll throw in a cup of coffee!
