Good Food N Fun

Mehdi came back from his month-long sabbatical and decided to throw a little private party with a couple of his closest friends.
He also invited his friend Francois Geurds, who owns and runs a restaurant in Rotterdam, called Ivy, wich is a hi-end culinary restaurant with a Michelin star.

Mehdi got him to inaugurate our new kitchen, by cooking up some great tasting delicacies.

Here you see the master at work.

In exchange for the food Mehdi gave Francois his first tattoo.

Don't worry, it istn't a real tattoo, he just wanted to experience how it felt. But he's gonna come back soon to get his first real tattoo.

All in all it was a great evening, with great people and great food.
Here is something you can try making yourself, but I bet it will never taste as good as the ones we had.

It's tuna with avocado-peanutbutter.

A little tatterzapper Florencio did yesterday with his inkslinging tattoogun.

Old School

So I have really always like Old School type tatts. So I thought I would mess around today and see what came out. What do yall think? Should I leave it as it or add something to the legs too?

Let me know!

Will release it soon.

Down her spine...

This piece was inspired by love & rebirth....I did it on my homegirl, Tiffany from back home in Asheville.... I'm honored she came to ATL for her body art... Many blessings... I will be tattooing in Asheville next week :-)

Sometimes, you have to dance with who brought ya.

When I first started to make tattoo's in Secondlife, most of my tattoos were although not text based, they relied on text for a big part of their meaning and impact. Lately I have been doing a lot of vibrant colors and big tattoos. But sometimes you have to go back to where you started and dance with who brought ya.

My newest tattoo, it goes back to where I started. I have to say I rather like it.

Rainy Days

It's summertime over here, and we are sitting inside with the fireplace on full blast.

It's cold and rainy outside, wich means a really quiet day in the shop, half of the crew is still on vacation. So there is a really mellow, relaxed mood going on here. I love rainy days, so I don't mind the sun not being here today.

New Store Build's DONE!! Kinda

Well, the new store's down and OPEN for business. Its not totally done. Will do some rearranging and some more landscaping but for all intents and purposes, its DONE!

Hide Yo Kids

This was terrible!

Roger got attacked by a rabid pit bull with down syndrome today.
I managed to take a picture just as the beast went for his throat.

It was a terrible sight. It even looks as though Roger is laughing on the picture, but he was actually screaming! True story.

Here's a picture of the satisfied look on the monsters face after the whole incident occurred.

That's the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered pit bull you ever set eyes on!  That dog's got a vicious streak a mile wide! It's a killer!
He's got huge, sharp... er... He can leap Just look at it!

Oh Ladies! This ones just for you!

Here you guys gals, a Tattoo just for you. It comes in the underwear and tattoo layer and has 3 separate tints.

Be sure and come buy and get yours.
