Cruisin’ Florida: Kreepy Tiki Lounge

Posted by Dee-Ann On September - 2 - 2016

kreepy tiki

Florida may not really be a rockabilly state, but if you ever happen to be there, there are a few places you might wanna visit.

When you drive around in South Florida you see bars calling themselves “tiki bar” all the time whenever they have a thatch roof or parasol. But most of the time, that’s not what WE call tiki. We heard about a real one in Fort Lauderdale The Kreepy Tiki Lounge.

Tattoo, Body Art and Street Art Convention

Posted by Dee-Ann On January - 12 - 2016

FlyerMaastricht2016The Tattoo, Body Art and Street Art Convention in Maastricht is about to kick off again! During the weekend of February 27th and 28th 2016, the tattoo event of the southern part of The Netherlands will take place at the MECC Maastricht.

The Tattoo, Body Art and Street Art Convention is an international event in which tattoo artists from home and abroad participate. This convention is known for its warm, cosy and friendly atmosphere for visitors and participants. The fact that the artists this year will settle in the foyer of the MECC for the first time, will contribute to this even more!
Visitors can of course be tattooed, or simply admire the art of tattooing. One can shop and stroll along the various colourful stands with clothing, piercing, jewellery, and more. The Grimeshop shows body paint demonstrations and also paints the most beautiful art on visitors if desired. Of course, as always, there will be lots of attention for street art at the convention: various street art artists will participate and let their creativity run wild.

Back at the convention: The Tattoo Preservation Service, which uses a careful and scientific method to preserve tattooed skin after death. This way your tattoo turns into a work of art that remains forever. Religious organization ‘De Kracht van de Veilige Naald’ (‘The Strength of the Safe Needle’) is present again to promote the acceptance of tattoos and will be tattooing, free of cost, the symbol of the oldest religion in the world – Tatooism – on everyone that wants it.

Vintage Soul Tattoo Studio

Posted by Dee-Ann On October - 25 - 2013

My name is Darren Burton, I’m a professional Tattoo Artist and owner of Vintage Soul Tattoo Studio, based in Syston Leicestershire.

img055Much to my Mums dismay I have been an avid artist since I could hold a pencil, I vividly remember Mum and Dad having to redecorate the walls more than once.  As a young boy I remember being fascinated by my dad’s old school tattoos and we were often found at the weekend in the local Tattoo Studio.  I got my first tattoo at quite a young age and that was it, I was completely hooked.  From there I would buy tattoo magazines and dream about becoming an artist. Unfortunately I listened to every one else’s advice and got a ‘proper job’ as a plumber. Over the years I would spend all my spare time drawing tattoo designs for my friends and the desire never left me.

Itattoo 016t wasn’t until I meet my now wife Lynz, that I started tattooing. After a few Jack Daniels we talked about our dreams and aspirations and it was like a moment of clarity, I decided to be what I know is in my blood, a Tattoo Artist.  That night Lynz gave me the push I needed to quit the job I hated and follow my dreams.  I have never looked back and opened my baby Vintage Soul Tattoo Studio.

Seven Crowns Tattoo Artists in Sepia

This interview took place right before I got a tattoo from George Brown. You can see the picture of the end result right here!  And there will also be video of the interview posted so you can hear the whole story including the weird cassette tape conspiracy and me laughing at the “mountain climbing” answer. And now without further ado I give you the interview with the Seven Crowns Society tattoo artists George Brown and Matthew Ellis.

How did the Seven Crowns shop get started?

Tattoo Convention Rotterdam, NL, part II Tattoo and Burlesque

Posted by Dee-Ann On March - 20 - 2011
Tattoo Studio West

At the Tattoo Convention in Ahoy Rotterdam, I bumped into a lot of people who I had interviewed for Rockabilly-online. Like Pascal from Hotrod Tattoo, Robert from Tattoo Studio West, who is also guitarist of 69Beavershot.

Candy Cane from Lady Luck tattoo. She was just about to start on the Pinup tiki tattoo on Lucy Schuurman’s leg. I interviewed Lucy about her beautiful Buick a while ago. Now she was ready to get inked by Candy. Lucy’s husband already has this tiki pinup tattoed in the more realistic version, as Lucy describes it. But she chose for the cartoon version on her leg. She was not sure of Candy could finish her tattoo at the convention, but she did!!!

Tattoo Profile: Bella Valentino

Posted by Dee-Ann On September - 26 - 2010

Bella Valentino

Today’s we are going to take a look at Bella Valentino’s tats. I asked her if she’s got all the tats she wanted, or if she’s planning on having more.

Bella: I plan on more, actually got more since I sent you these pic’s. I trying to finish my sleeve, almost there! My fiance did my chest, right sleeve and foot, and lip. He’s an amazing tattoo artist. We sit around and brain storm on cool ideas with meaning and he draws it all up perfectly. My chest is a mended heart with sparrows and three ribbons saying honesty, loyalty and fidelity. These are the 3 rules/promises we made to each other from the start. It’s a Sailor Jerry style (my fiance’s favorite). Every time I look in the mirror it reminds me of those 3 simple things that make our relationship so wonderful. It was actually a painting he made for me and I loved it so much I asked him to tattoo it on my chest. He was so taken back, the idea that I cared that much about our promises to each other. Enough to get them tattooed, he knew that I intended to keep them. My arm started with the flowers on my upper arm. I told him I wanted a half sleeve when we first meet before we started dating.

Our second TATTOO PROFILE!

Posted by bunny On August - 11 - 2010

This time we have not one but two pieces of body art for you to enjoy!

Aren’t these great?! These come from Candilee, this is what she had to say!

Hi ya Bunny! I’m sending this collage of my tats to you and all of
your fans and friends. Hope you all like them! My chest piece is kind
of traditional, it’s a nautical theme for my marriage. it symbolizes a
way to always find our way home. It reads “little trip to heaven” it’s
the Tom Waits song we danced to at our wedding. Anyhoo, I drew it up
and Phil with Studio 21 here in Las vegas, NV did the ink work.
My back tat was done in 2006 for mothers day. My hubby asked what
I wanted and I said a tat for our 3 girls…needless to say he drew
this one up for me and I fell in love with it. I took it to Lee with
Soul Expressions in Murrietta, CA. and now my three little monkeys are
always on my back.
Well, once again…hope you all like them, they were a couple of
good pokes. LOL.
Thanks,
Candilee
