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.
