Skin and Bones

As of April till January 2010,  the exhibit "Skin and Bones, Tattoos in the Life of the American Sailor"  will be up at the Independence Seaport Museum in Philadelphia.  Filled with historic photographs, artifacts and tattoo related art, the exhibit dives into the importance, the power and the depth of tattoo history in American maritime culture.  I plan on making a special trip to see the show.  


My favorite time of year has come around again, the NYC Tattoo Convention at the Roseland Ballroom, May 15-17th.  I got some great tattoo gear and made some new friends with really good advice.  The place was buzzing and the ink was flowing.  I can't wait for next year!
