Tattoo News - June/July 2010
It is harder and harder to find good new websites on Polynesian tattoo. In the search, however, I often find some interesting sites. A very unusual site on Hawaiian tattoo is at http://www.hawaiiantattoo.net It is very strangely worded and offers some unusual perspectives. Another odd site is http://www.polynesiantattoodesigns.org/ which proposes to offer the "truth" about Polynesian tattoo.
While looking for tattoo videos I ran across a fun commercial for Air New Zealand -- http://www.youtube.com/user/AirNZnothing2hide?v=elD38pJX7iE
The LA County Museum has a very impressive new exhibition of Pacific Art. See
http://www.lacma.org/collection/pacific.html Much of the exhibit is online & well worth a look.
While driving up the CA coast to the SF area, I often
stop & see friends with the Easter Island Foundation. The Foundation has recently updated their website with some great info & photos from the island. See http://islandheritage.org
I am curious to see if there is sufficient interest in the San Luis Obispo area to warrant a tattoo stay here during a future trip. If you are on the central coast and might have an interest in new ink, please let me know - e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
As you might know, I've been tattooing the last few weeks in Oceanside and LA. This trip I had my most recent apprentice along, Jordan (http://www.jordansouza.com). He was a pleasure to work with and hopefully there will be sufficient interest for him return to CA in the future. Due to the current economy, things in Southern CA were a bit slower than expected so I'll be arriving in the East SF Bay Area somewhat earlier than planned. I do still have openings in my schedule in N CA, so give a call or e-mail if you are interested. My revised dates are as follows:
June 22nd - July 9th East SF Bay Area
July 15th - Sept 6th Home on O'ahu
Sept/Oct LA, Oceanside and San Francisco - exact dates TBA
I can be reached while in CA at 510-802-2155, or email@example.com. If you are e-mailing regarding a possible appointment, please send me your phone number, as I often prefer the phone since I can talk far faster than I type. We can schedule just a consultation, or if you have a good idea as to what you want, a tattoo appointment.
