also just booked for the convention in san francisco. lets party!

I am pretty sure that he and Adam Warmerdam are in Europe right now. I hate getting up with people on Instagram, but if you don't have his email it may be the only way to contact him right now.

@hogg - Awesome! Been a bit homesick for the Bay Area lately and seeing more and more Spider Murphy's (and guests') tattoos aren't making it any better. Guess I better get myself home soon...

edit: Or say fuck it and find a way to get to New Zealand!

My wife and I both got tattooed by Capilli Tupou today. First off, he is one of THE nicest tattooers I've ever met. Just an incredibly good guy. My wife got her knee cap and I got the back of my knee done. Because, you know, we complete each other.

Hers:

Yeah, man! One of the best dudes ever, for sure. We got there around noon and didn't leave until close to 6. Total pleasure spending the day with him.

I pulled up your Instagram account and said, "So your boss did this guy's back?" He lit up! "How do you know Mike? He's got an incredible collection." He also said that, amazing as the photos are, your back has to be seen to be believed. The gray veil over the face, in particular.

One thing that we thought was funny: he kept apologizing to my wife because he felt bad for tattooing a woman's knee. She's tough as nails and sat like a rock, but he still kept saying, "Sorry, sorry." Then when he started on me, he said, "I'm not apologizin' to you, mate. I'm just gonna go!" Haha. He was super efficient.

He's gonna be in LA at Captured, then in New York for a few weeks, then back in the Bay. Flights from Portland to SF are about $200.

i wish capilli was still going to be at spider murphys this thursday when i get out there. i reaaaally want to get tattooed by him.

If by "reaaaally" you mean "I'd drive 5 hours," then go see him at Greenpoint Tattoo in Brooklyn. He'll be there soon. Although that might be tough on the heels on your vacation.

i would definitely drive 5 hours to get tattooed by him but yeah, this trip has put more than a dent in my wallet haha. i'm already getting tattooed 2 out of 4 days in california and i already promised max when i get home we can work on my back. hopefully he will be back in the states at some point in the future.

I like that he can appreciate all styles even tho he is a traditional tattooer. He has been getting a lot of attention lately and well deserved of course, It just goes to show there is no room for rock stars in the industry when you have super talented guys like Capilli who are so humble and thankful for what they do.

    • I’m currently working on my sleeve and I’m about halfway done with it. I noticed now that there’s a small smell on my tattoo. I can’t smell it from a distance and only can smell it when I get super close to my tattoo. I’m just concerned with the thought of an infection but I’ve done everything the same I have with my 7 other tattoos. I have no unusual pain with it and it isn’t red or inflamed. Just would like a little advice on what to do? 
    • Hey! Wouldn't by chance be going to the empire state ny tattoo expo would ya?  In any case, i did a 3 day marathon and boy was it tough. i did the ole soap and a balm that my artist provided. With that being said, you should 100% ask your artist(s) as they know how they tattoo and how their tattoos heal for the most part. They should tell you what to do but i've heard many great things about saniderm. Best of luck!
    • Hi all.  Looking for some advice here.  I'm attending an upcoming 3 day tattoo convention and was thinking about getting tattooed each day.  My dilemma would be about the healing process.  Basically I'm curious if anyone has done this before and how they healed.  I know the go-to answer will be Saniderm/Tegaderm, but I have used that stuff a few times and even though I healed fine, something about covering my tattoo with a sticky bandage just makes me paranoid something will get trapped in there.  I end up not liking it because I spend too much time worrying.  But on the other hand, if I just use the soap & aquaphor method, I'm afraid that won't be any good because I'll be around a lot of people and I'll be getting another tattoo in the same area (all 3 would be on my legs).  I'm worried about the tattoo being exposed or possibly infected, or just not heal well because of everything going on.  Thanks for reading this far and I appreciate any advice that is offered.
