the gypsy gentleman

A couple of month's back I was asked by Virginia Elwood to receive a tattoo from her while being filmed for The Gypsy Gentleman. The concept was this; a few tattooers go to a museum and get inspired, then create a drawing for a tattoo based on that inspiration.
When i arrived at Markus Kuhn's private studio in Brooklyn, Thomas was already tattooing and Virginia was working diligently on her drawing. I told her, "I don't want to see anything until you are done tattooing it". Needless to say, it turned out amazing. You will have to wait for the episode to air to see the finished tattoo. Markus is a great tattooer with a refreshing philosophy about tattooing and life in general. Looking forward to seeing his project completed.

heart abbey lee...

white trash

I always wanted a nickname, its to bad "the beast" has already been claimed. I love watching home piercings go down. It never fails amaze me. This one is complete with shirtless antics, salad tongs, screams and safety pins.

I have a guilty pleasure dream of doing a reality television show called The Bathroom Surgeon. The basis of it would be to perform piercings on randoms, using only what they have on hand in their homes.

lascaux cave paintings

I went to see Werner Herzog's documentary (Cave of Forgotten Dreams) about the Lascaux cave paintings with my friend Gina. I have to give Clementine credit for being the first to turn me on to it though. Its real nerdy but totally fascinating. Its playing in 3D at the 42nd Street theater in Times Square. I recommend a early matinee to beat the heat. Summer nights are far to valuable to not be outside.

Lascaux is the setting of a complex of caves in southwestern France famous for its Paleolithic cave paintings. The original caves are located near the village of Montignac, in the department of Dordogne. They contain some of the best-known Upper Paleolithic art. These paintings are estimated to be 17,300 years old. They primarily consist of primitive images of large animals, most of which are known from fossil evidence to have lived in the area at the time.
