Street Style

From one of the earliest street contest's. That's Theo Jak's car with him sitting in the drivers seat, so that makes it tattoo related also.

More Cards

Bill Salmon's card when he was at Ed Hardy's Realistic Studio.
Good Time Charlie's! A true gentleman of tattooing.
Ken Cameron's card when he worked at Smiling Budda.
Paul Jeffries card. Think this was while Ken was working there also cause the care instructions on the reverse side look identical.

More Greg Irons

These tattoos are all on Sailor Cam.
These were done in the early 80's.

I'm sure they still look great.

Japan, was thinking of some friends there this week.

Caves in Enoshima,where the Samurai hid out in the 1600's, there's a cemetery in there too.
2nd biggest Buddah in Japan, near Enoshima. Made from individual cast panels.
Another national treasure of Japan, the beer vending machine.
Gus, aka Gusto Higo. The best machine builder in the world!

Gus at work, doing a lil rebuild on one of Annette LaRue's machines. A rollomatic type cutback she got from Lou Sciberra.
The economy is already bad in Japan and now there are rolling blackouts through out the country, needless to say he's not doing a lot of tattooing right now.
So professional tattooers, BUY HIS MACHINES!

Bought this one from Mike Malone at a Philly convention in '99 or 2000.
In Oakland in '02 I got him to sign my copy of "Bulls-Eyes & Black Eyes", which has this painting in it.
Never really new the man but, really enjoyed the few times I got to speak with him. I admire his take on tattooing and his work.

A John Wayne Gacey painting on a paralegal. '04 or so.
Ed Hardy's "Pray for Surf" on my friend(and bass player in my old band) Bill. Did this last year.

5 seconds after the doors opened on Sunday, for real.
Annette had a big Crawdad boil on Monday, it ruled. Thanks
You gotta wear a costume when you work at Ladyland during Mardi Gra, we were all Chris Smith from DC.
Thanks for everything to the crew at Electric Ladyland, lots of tattoos were done that week, in a REAL tattoo shop!

Found these pics in my phone there from a couple years ago.
Joe has a bunch of tattoos from Sailor Jerry, he's the guy who has the wind swirl on his elbow that Jerry did in 1967.
Smitty (RIP), tattooing Joe.
