Boring ass info post... but please read it anyway!

Here's a little late friday night info for you, since i'm stuck at work anyway:

Eckel will be in Germany from the 21st till the 29th of January.
And he will be working at the Brighton Tattoo Convention on January 30th and 31st.
So if you wanted to come by and talk to him at the shop, please wait until the 2nd of February where he'll be at the shop most of the day, doing just that.

Our work schedules are pretty random these days, so we advice you not to drop by without emailing us first, cause we might not be here.
Also, between January 29th and February 8th we won't be answering mails or taking any consultations.*
During that time Allan will be working, but the shop will be closed for everyone except the people getting tattooed.
So, if you have something urgent to discuss, please do so before January 29th.

Thanks for reading and have a fantastic weekend!

*Eckel's consultation day on the 2nd is obviously an exception.

A not so fun update

For personal reasons, we've been forced to cancel our trip to the Milan Tattoo Convention in February.
Allan hadn't booked any clients for the show, but we still sincerely apologize to anyone who was hoping to get tattooed by him during the convention.
We hope to be back at our usual spot next to Mr. Dettmer next year!

The next convention Uncle Allan is attending will be Ink n Iron in Long Beach, California in June.

Thanks heaps!

As you all know we've been a little preoccupied with the new shop lately.
And we still are.
We've been at the same spot for about 9 years, so moving is a big deal, even bigger than if we were moving to a new apartment, i think.
It's gonna be the beginning of a new era for us, with new possibilities and new projects and... shit like that, you know what i mean!
So with all that going on, it's easy to forget to blog about other stuff.
Like what it's all about, which is art.
So with that in mind i thought i'd post a couple of new tattoos.
Both tattoos are on the same client, Kane from Australia.
He got tattooed two days in a row, one day by Eckel and one day by Allan, and sat like a trooper for both sessions.
What a guy!

Day one; Eckel
Day two; Uncle Allan

Thanks for coming all the way to Copenhagen to get tattooed, and for getting fun pieces too, we hope to see you again some day, maybe even in Australia!


Our friendly neighbors at WAS were nice enough to donate a sofa from their current exhibition, Domestic Mashup, to our new shop.
Too bad we can't steal their wallpaper too!
Free stuff is awesome, and now we have one less piece of furniture to buy for the new shop.
Thanks guys!

This little orange wonder will be Big Red's new sidekick
Color selections are going pretty well, but it's hard.. it's like there are either too many colors to choose from, or not quite enough... *sigh*

New shop address and map!

Today we went by the new shop again.
Renovations seem to be going great, but since there's so much to do, it's hard to say when exactly it'll be finished and when we'll have the opening party.
But we've decided to make the official moving day, at least for now, March 1st.
So anyone booked after March 1st, or anyone dropping by for a consultation, should do so at our new address:

Schleppegrellsgade 7, kld.
2200 København N

The new shop is the "A" and our current shop is the red/black dot, it may look far, but it's actually just a 10 minute walk (it's true i timed it!)
And a closer look

We'll still send out emails with the address and map info, but now you have it here too.
Wow, it seems so real now...
I'm so used to being secretive, cause nothing was confirmed 100%, but now it's really out there!

To our foreign clients coming from the airport:
-Take the train or metro from inside the terminal
-Get off at Nørreport Station
-Walk down Frederiksborggade
-Cross Dr. Louise's Bridge
-After you've crossed the bridge you either turn right and walk along the lakes, or go down the next street, Ravnsborggade, until you get to Schleppegrellsgade.

Like so:

Toy exodus

I started packing already.
Well, a little bit of packing anyway.
I had one tiny little box lying around and i needed to do something, so i packed up some of the stuff around my fortress.
Bye bye toy buddies, see y'all soon
There wasn't actually room for all of them, just the ones in my office
Newest additions to the family: lego Conspiracy crew, a present from some recent Aussie clients
My (way too small) Booska collection
Don't worry, pervy John MacCain, you're coming with us

Next week i'm gonna start packing for reals, in big boxes.

3.0 update

Yesterday we made two visits to the new shop, so i figured it was about time with an update.
The renovations started right after New Years, and so far it's going really well.
We got people working on floors, walls, windows, electricity and wallpaper.
We pretty much have people taking care of everything!

We're still planning on having a work weekend though, maybe in early february, where we're gonna paint some rooms and eat some pizza, and you'll all be very welcome to join us.
More updates on that plan later!

This floor may need some work... just a little work
My office!
Our kitchen, color suggestions are welcome (keep in mind that it has to match the hideous floor)
Without these guys there probably wouldn't be a new shop

We've picked out some wallpaper for the front room, and kind of decided on colors for most of the other rooms, but there's still a ton of stuff we need.
Since this new shop is so much bigger than our current shop, there's a lot of furniture we need to buy, and not a lot of time to do it.
But once it's finished, it'll be glorious!!

More updates coming soon!

Whales are awesome

We watched The Cove last night.
It's amazing and we think you should watch it too.
Ok bye!
