  1. Yeah, he apprenticed Albee back in the 80's and Albee apprenticed me. He always came into our shop to visit with Albee. Very loud guy.
  2. Ive been around as well, big cities and small. I have had many a conversation about the town I live in with many artist abroad. This is what I have based this post about. I am not bitter about shops in bigger cities, I came from Atlanta. You say Panama City Beach, and the conversation gets going... I have worked many places, doing guest spots and this city gets a ton of flack. Adam West is the name that always gets brought up, and when you say you are from here, the term is usually followed, "Wow, I didn't know anything good came from there". I have heard this in just about every city I have done a spot in. Either way this is a great town, my point to this blog was, It's time to move on and get my feet wet in another city where my efforts can be seen easier as an artist, and better provide for my family.
  3. I agree and concur with you friend.
  4. Shadowed In A Tourist Town

    Living in a tourist town has had more disadvantages as an artist, and trying to be noticed. I have lived in the Panhandle of Florida for about 14 years, and having been tattooing for about 8. When you think of tourist towns , you think of terrible chop shops and insane tattoo prices. Well most of this is true, but not entirely. I work at Black Cat Tattoo, in PCB. we have always had a strong crew and put out clean original work. We have tourists who want flash, but we still pretty much draw everything we do. Our shop really pushes forward to try and break the stereotype that has been given to us by shops in bigger cities, even though in bigger cities there are more shops per block and more hacks than you can fit in our small town. I work with really great guys and its a shame to see everybody work so hard at painting and tattooing, only to be swept under the carpet by a false reputation. Myself and the guys I work with all travel and do guest spots, and try to establish respect from shops abroad. I myself am moving in search of new clientele, and some different scenery. I am trying to give my family a little something more, and for my son, a better name in which to follow. I will always love the shop I came from, and will always seek out good artists in those small tourist towns and pay respect were it is due. Adelante Siempre- I keep a blog of my travels, tattoos, and paintings. Please stop by and feel free to take a gander! www.knockknockthedevil.com
  5. I enjoy your blog friend, I added you on my blog roll some time ago and stop in frequently to catch up. Very nice.
  6. I'm a Horror fan, but these days there just isn't much to choose from. Sure, there are the classics, and everybody can be a "movie snob" and say that they would rather watch the old over the new, but in due time you've seen them a million times and you are hungry for something new. I have enjoyed the re-makes, some good, some bad, at least it's something. I think my favorites are still: The Amityville Horror, The Shining, The Exorcist, Alice Sweet Alice, The Pit, The Devonsville Terror, and of course all of the Evil Dead's and the slasher films. These films take me back to sitting on the couch and eating popcorn with my mom. I was raised watching horror movies, I just have not figured out when it would be a good time for my son!

  11. Its Bay County, Florida. He wanted this old piece of flash and the coordinates are to remind him of where home is. I thought it was really cool.
  12. Thank you, this is a split set that we are putting together with a few other artists. This sheet is by one of my team mates, Darren Anderson. This guy is amazing, and one hell of a chum!
  13. I did tattoo it on a co-worker, it's a little different than the flash though. Thank you for the compliment! I really appreciate the feedback.
  14. Hope all is well, and as always, great work
