A Visit To Long Island, NY

18th 2010

CliffWhite selects 019 A Visit To Long Island, NYWhen we first visited Cliff’s Tattoo in Centereach, NY we were prepared to do a Shop Spotlight feature on the storied ink studio and talk a little tattoo history with owner, Cliff White.

After spending about an hour at his shop and seeing all of the memorabilia and historical materials that Cliff had at his shop, we began to wonder how we were going to fit all of this material into one feature.

Then Cliff took us to his home, which is nothing shop of a museum of tattooing history. The collection runs from some of the earliest (and largest) flash sheets on record to tattooing equipment from well over a half century ago.

It soon became clear that this story would have to be a two-part series. Part I will explore Cliff White and his home collection, while Part II will focuse on the Cliff’s Tattoo shop on Long Island.

We’re sure you will enjoy this very special two-part feature. Look for it in Skin&Ink later this year.

Day Three Of The BTSOE

4th 2010

DSC00176 Day Three Of The BTSOEThe Biggest Tattoo Show on earth concluded today in Vegas and I can’t tell you how fast the weekend flew by. It was all a lot of fun and we got some tremendous coverage.

I look forward to bringing you all the best photos and a killer write up of the event. However, right now you’ll just get a taste of photos taken by me.

Ps- I promise the photos taken by our photographer will do a better job of capturing the beauty and spectacle of the show than the images I knocked out on my cheesy cam.

DSC001332 Biggest Tattoo Show On Earth– Day Two

Greetings from Mandalay Bay on day two of the Biggest Tattoo Show On Earth. As promised I took more photos than yesterday with my little Sony pocket cam.

Today was amazing. We shot a gazillion people…give or take a few. I also got a chance to get to know some of the other folks who put out tat mags, and our mutual appreciation for ink and the work each of us do added an extra dimension of coolness to the proceedings.

First Shots at Vegas Show

2nd 2010

It’s very late, but I wanted to at least post a couple of shots of the opening day of the convention.

We shot well over 100 people and the crowd around our booth was steady through the entire day.

We were so busy I almost forgot to break out my own crappy cam and fire off a shot or two.

Here is a small glimpse into what was going on. I’ll have more tomorrow I swear.
