My favorite past time (and it's not tattooing!)...

DISCLAIMER: I am not a tattoo artist, I'm young, and still have plenty of blank skin left. I do not claim to be the elite know-it-all of tattoo culture (nor have any right to be one,) I'm just throwing my opinion out there for the sake of some good ol' fashioned shit talking. Anyways, now that all that's out of the way... I'm not naming names but I know quite a few of you LST'ers enjoy this great activity. If these things bother me, I can only imagine how much they bother some of you that ha

Hello friends and welcome to Last Sparrow Tattoo

So here it is, my first blog entry. Check me out, I'm in the 90"s now.... I will be writing a couple of book reviews on three amazing books. The first one is the Bob Roberts book, which has a pricey back bone and is well worth it. The second will be the Tattoo Encyclopedia by Hanky Panky, a true pirate. Hanky Panky takes no shit, none whatsoever. He is the greatest tattoo historian and he lives the life, as opposed to all the degree holding turds who are just hoping someone will take them serio

Ian Clark (Wrecking Ball Promo Inc) and The Three Questions

Ian Clark is a close friend of mine that I have been fortunate enough to know for a little over nine years. Ian has travelled/toured with various punk & hardcore bands that you have more than likely seen. He used to own BroPrints with his brother where they printed many of the punk & hardcore shirts and stickers that you can find in your closet at some point in your life. He left BroPrints a few years ago and started his new company called Wrecking Ball Promo Inc. Here's is the info if y

Tattoo appointment etiquette

WELL PLEASE FEEL FREE TO TAKE THE SAME LIBERTIES WHEN YOU ARE GETTING TATTOOED!!!!!!!!!! brush your teefs so it dont smell like you been munchin on shit sandwiches for lunch. if you are getting your foot

Five Days in New Orleans

For a city with (many) citizens and tourists wandering the streets with tattoos, from the lonely one to the whirlwind of many; I only saw two tattoo shops. One was on the St. Charles line headed out to the historic and beautiful Garden District while the other was on Frenchman St. The nickname of the Big Easy is beyond fitting with “easy” easily being filled in for any community to event to transportation except for tattoo shop locator. I could spot tattoos in any direction I looked but no tatto

Lochlan and the Three Questions

One of the many things I'll be doing with my blog is interviews with friends who tattoo and/or who are musicians who get tattooed with the following three questions: 1) The who, what, when, where, and why of your first tattoo? Picture? 2) The who, what, when, where, and why of your latest tattoo? Picture? 3) The last band, album, and song you listened to? So to kick it off I'll take a swing at it: 1) The who, what, when, where, and why of your first tattoo? Picture? Who= Tom

They have traveled to various locations always heckling and having a good time. In the process of the hecklings and nonsense while working and ha
