Back at work, and happy about it too

Oh hi, how are y'all doing?
Us? Well, we're back from London and we couldn't be happier.
The convention was a bit weird this year, and none of us had a truly great time, but i plan to rant about that on my personal blog tomorrow, so i'll spare you for now.
But Allan is gonna post the three tattoos* he did while there very soon.

In the meantime, i had a rare opportunity to get a sneaky shot of a tattoo he hasn't gotten any decent pictures of yet.
See, Nicolai came in to get some robot-spacechick-madness done by Nick last night, and while he was just sitting there, i got a few classy iPhone pictures of his penguin!

Penguin awesomeness, real pictures will pop up on the blog of Uncle eventually

More news, dates, updates, and that sort of stuff coming soon.
Right now i think i'm gonna try to convince Allan to watch some more Bored to Death with me!

*Poor guy had a terrible cold and couldn't work at all Friday.

Sake maki

It's always difficult for me to get Allan (or any of the other guys for that matter) to give me pictures for this blog.
Understandably, they'd rather post them on their own blogs, and i can't exactly blame them, but in order for this blog to have the occasional tattoo photo, so it's not all about me whining about broken kitchens, i have to demand tattoo pictures.
As i did with this one when i said, "i'm taking the sushi and that's it!"
Or something along those lines...

Anyway, here's Kim's flying maki

And here are all those battles i did not win.
Until next time, Allan...

Vampires and water leaks

Ok, since Allan already posted a sneak peek of this one on his blog, i better hurry up and post the whole thing.
Keep in mind that it's one of those half healed/half fresh situations that are so damn hard to photograph without glare.
But not to worry, we'll get a healed shot when Stefan comes back to get his backpiece started!

Grrr, argh

In shop news, it seems like we may get our kitchen back in the not so distant future.
After much delay, shit is finally starting to happen, and the water damage that broke out in May, and has left us without a kitchen and therefore with a very messy shop, for over a month, could be fixed within the next week or so.
I'm hopeful, but not optimistic; shit has a way of going wrong for us just when we're about to reach our goal.
The goal, in case you all forgot, is of course not only to have a completely finished shop, but a shop that is so finished that we can finally have that opening party we've been talking about since March.
Personally i think we might as well wait until our one year anniversary is coming up.
I know that sounds a little crazy, but we've waited so long already and now that fall is rapidly approaching with its rainy and windy weather, none of our foreign friends will want to come visit anyway, and who can blame them.
So yeah, maybe it won't happen until March, but it will eventually happen and when it does, there will be an abundance of 80's hors d'oeuvres for everyone!

Here's another view of the horse tattoo Eckel posted on his blog a few days ago.
Yes, on his blog.
A picture.
Of a tattoo.
I know, right?

Aaaand a whole different view, that you maybe didn't wanna see

Sorry for traumatizing y'all, i'll make up for it with more pretty tattoo pictures in the near future, and maybe even a finished shot of this!
