Just reviving this thread. Anyone know if Jef is still at Taylor St?

According to a small amount of internet research...yupper dude.

He is at Taylor Street still. I tried reaching him via email 2 months back for something and never heard back. I'm assuming the dude's just busy. I've hit Taylor Street a few times in the last 6 months for work and have only seen him there maybe once. I should have asked then. As someone said to me recently "he's a tough dude to nail down" for sure.

Jef Whitehead has been a huge inspiration. His tattoos are bold, strong and just badass. In Tattoo Artist Narratives by Horiyuki, theres a really cool short interview. And did a documentary on him about a year ago call One Man metal.One Man Metal | VICE United States

Yea I actually posted that in the thread. Pretty cool stuff.

I will say, for someone who applies intense and powerful tattoos visually, mine was the least painful tattoo I ever had. I had him do a skull on my upper left thigh.

Funny to see this thread pop up. The other night I saw a buddy who had his back outlined by Whitehead when he was in Chicago. Unfortunately due to travel/email miscommunication/timing/etc, it's still just an outline years later. Kind of a bummer to see. Hopefully someday he gets it finished.

      Maybe this is naive or just hopeful, but I want to start an artist signature line of T-shirts,  designed by Tattoo Artists, I know this is not a new concept, but the niche will be that they are not shop T-shirts and not Sullen big productions from the larger companies (which are awesome). I would like to see simple clean designs, limited colors on Black shirts, made locally, of limited runs of 100 -300 shirts only, so that it actually matters that you have one of a limited supply (value added). Also limited run designs will mean that the art is constantly changing with fresh designs by the artists. There is a real opportunity for the Tattoo Scene to support local makers of things, like t-shirt makers and printers etc, instead of having things mass produced in China. Help your cousin Jim, you know what I mean. North America used to be a world producer, now we are consumer extraordinaires. This also gives a creative venue for tattooers who make awesome art which not so Tattoo-able sometimes, which can generate income for a rainy day fund when they are not tattooing (yes that happens). 
      Here are 5 designs which I am considering for Black T-shirts (hence the black back-drop). 
      What is your feedback? Why one or the other? If there is consensus, this thing can pop out in the real world and you are a part of it. How often do you get that opportunity?
