    Dan Higgs

    Not sure if this the right place to do this or not, but I wil do it anyhow. I was wondering if any of you had been tattooed by Higgs. That was one of my big regrets, I would love to have some of his work. I have a couple of friends who have, but there are not a lot of pictures on the internet of his work and I would love to see more of it. One of the shops I go to has a couple sheets of his flash and I think it is pretty awesome.

    I think most people dont post his work online intentionally. Same with Roper. Some things need to be seen in person.

    On that note, without really trying to derail the thread too much, I did ask & get to see an AMAZING backpiece by Roper on Ichibay's back when I saw him @ Montreal Convention. Holy shit.

    Here is a link to a flickr account with an article and a few images of Mr. Higgs, beardless, and a few of his tattoos. After previewing my post I don' think that I have properly attached the link so here it is for you copy and pasting pleasure.

    Re: Dan Higgs

    How odd. I just recently scanned that same article for a friend. Except I scanned it large to read without going blind hahaha.



    In fact that whole issue is a gem in the rough. Very early interviews with Marcus, Rassier, Hoyer, Elio.. for a already-dated publication at that point, this issue has some knowledge jewels.

    In the Higgs interview, one of the things I identify with the most is where he talks at length about his experience at Tux's; what he says can pretty much sum up word for word my experience as well with him as well, to almost every detail. His description of the shop, its unique atmosphere, the mood it set, etc.

    I think this should do it.
    I am having trouble getting this up. Sorry. If you go to the same flickr account it is there, but for some reason it is not in the Dan Higgs set. It is on the third page of photos. There are two different ones. It looks like they are from an interview or video of some kind.
