i was in his hong kong shop in '91 and that was qiute an experience. between the what looked to be young gang kids in the waiting room playing some kind of card game to the flash that covered the shop. i had been in quite a few tattoo shops by then and had tattoos, but seeing that kind of street shop in hong kong was something i won't forget. my hats off to the old man. RIP.

Best wishes to those that he cared for and who cared for him. Gia wrote an amazing blog about her experience(s) with Pinky back in October with tattoo pictures and stories. Thanks for the above story as well Karl.

Rest in Peace Pinky . I was one of the people doing crappy tattoos down the street from him at Tattoos r Us in 1994. Got to see his work all the time back then. Always heard how he could draw dragons simultaneously with both hands!. Hope to make it as long as him. Another 37 years of tattooing and I'll be there.

    • oooooh do we get a name as to who is doing the commission?  I also got something, from Luca Mamone
    • Heres 3 that have tattooed me recently (ish) and are selling stuff (I've put in orders to Elharper and Swearjar- Ben is doing Vans) - UK based of course. https://www.instagram.com/bendunningtattoo/ https://www.instagram.com/elharperartist/ https://www.instagram.com/swearjartattoos/ And... Ive attached a 3 years (give or take a month) photo of one of my magpies by Mr Dunning  - just done on the right - today on the left - yes I know it's the wrong way round Actually  - while none of us is getting tattooed - how about a pic of your favourite that you have had inked  (or favourites that you have had inked) and a link to Instagram for the artist  (or artists) what do you reckon?🙂
    • My appointments with Garver and Rubendall were cancelled. Blah. That being said, I do have a cool commission happening. 🙂
