UPCOMING WEST COAST EVENTS
The San Diego Pacific Islander Festival is coming up Sept 27th & 28th at Ski Beach. It's a great event! For more details, see http://www.pacificislanders.com/ Look for me at the Tattoo Traditions booth in the educational area. See you there!
POLYNESIAN TATTOOS IN SPAIN!
Casa Asia is hosting a Festival of Asia and the Pacific Oct. 10, 11 & 12 in Barcelona, then the 20th through the 25th in Madrid. Two Maori tattooists, Ben Te Hau and Nehe will be tattooing there, and I'll be tattooing & presenting seminars at the Barcelona event. Several films on Polynesian tattoo will be shown as well. Sorry! No link to a website yet! E-mail me at email@example.com if you are interested in getting tattooed.
ON THE WEB
The European magazine, Tattoo Life is online! Their archive of articles is worth a look... http://www.tattoolife.com/archive/home.html I really liked the Artic tattoo article at http://www.tattoolife.com/archive/arch_22.html The Borneo
article was also worth reading.
