Uncle Allan booking info

Just a quick post to let you know that i am closing Uncle Allan's waiting list for (hopefully just) a little while.
There are a lot of people on the list already (and thanks for that!) and i feel like we need to get a few more of those good people off the list, and into the workroom before we accept any more new projects.
So, please don't write to the waiting list email account until further notice.

I will of course let you know as soon as we open it up again!

Anyone who has a piece already in progress can contact us from mid march for appointments starting in may.

We're back!!

Hello dear blog readers!
We're back from Japan, enjoying our first day back at the shop.
Ok, so enjoying is kind of a big word, cause really, who enjoys being back from an awesome vacation? But at least we're having a nice mellow day, so it could be a lot worse.

As usual i have news, lots of news! Well, maybe not lots, but good news!
As you may already know, if you're the kind of person who likes to check our "News & Events" section from time to time, Adam Hays is coming back to work with us in just a few weeks, from the 12th till the 17th of march, and he still has a couple of spots available.
So, if you wanna get tattooed (and remember, fun stuff only, we want our guests to have a good time), just send an email with your ideas to adamguyhays@gmail.com, and he'll get back to you with a possible date.

Og på dansk: Adam Hays kommer tilbage og arbejder hos os fra den 12. til den 17. marts og han har stadig enkeltre ledige tider.
Så hvis du gerne vi tatoveres af ham (og hvorfor skulle du ikke ville det?) skal du sende en mail med dine ideer til adamguyhays@gmail.com.

Some of Adam's fine work:

What else?
Oh yeah, Uncle Allan's month of black metal madness is coming up, and as the work he'll be doing during that month is all for his upcoming book, there won't be much posted online. No, not even instagram. But it should be an interesting month nonetheless!
And in other related black metal news, Allan will have his first ever solo show, Faces of Black Metal, at the Lionheart Gallery in Germany. It runs from the 24th of march till the 13th of may and you can read more about it here.
We will be going there for the opening, so come by and say hi and buy some damn paintings or something!

I was sure i had other news, but i'm still completely 'lagged out (woke up at 6 again this morning...- NOT my usual style) so i don't remember.
But i'll post more when my brain gets back to normal.

Have a sweet week everyone!

Client's view

Our shop has come a long way since we moved in here almost two years ago (... really? has it been that long??), but since we're not in the construction phase anymore, thank god, we don't often get around to taking pictures of our progress.
So i was really happy when Luba and Roman from Russia sent me pictures from their visit earlier this month. 
It's nice to see the shop from a visitors perspective, and can i just say, it looks pretty good.
Of course we always see what's missing, and notice all the little things we'd like to improve, but all in all, it's not too bad!

No more talk, see for yourself!

Native Americana

Are you one of the people who, unlike me, wasn't lucky enough to get tattooed by Nick on this trip?
Well, that's a sad story and we feel bad for you, cause he's all booked up and leaving soon*, but there is still a chance to own some sweet Electric Pick artwork for your wall. That's a small consolation, right?

Nick has two versions of the same print available to buy at the shop, right now and here's the deets:

"First set is of a limited run of 50
pretty sweet matte yet untextured super paper
size: A3 (11" 3/4 x 16" 1/2 for you non-metric folks)
Hand signed and numbered and as usual will never be printed again.

Second set is of a limited run of 10
also pretty sweet yet different matte/fancy smooth paper
size: A2 (16" 1/2 x 23" 1/2)
Also hand signed/numbered"

The big one, A2 is 500 dkr and the small one, A3 is 230 dk.
There are 20 left of the A3 and only 4 of the A2.
And did we mention they're hand signed and numbered?

Og så lige en hurtig gang på Dansk, fordi denne post jo trods alt mest henvender sig til folk i Kbh og omegn:
Nick er fuldt booket og har ikke tid til at tage flere kunder, men tilgengæld har han taget nogle fancy flotte prints med sig fra Hong Kong, som han sælger her i butikken.
Der er to størrelser at vælge imellem, det store print koster 500 kr og det lille 230 kr, og du kan komme forbi butikken indtil Lørdag hvis du vil købe et.

The prints!

I'm just gonna include my new tattoo for your viewing pleasure (in case you haven't seen it on any of the other blogs!), not only cause it's super awesome, but also since it's the first time Nick has gotten to tattoo one of his indian chicks!

Hello gorgeous!

*I can't say how soon, cause that would compromise my ability to stay in complete denial about him leaving us at all.
