  1. Dean Schubert / Yapese Tattoo Adventure. Reviving the Traditional Tattoo of Yap Just wanted To drop this on everyone here on Last Sparrow. Haven't been in the mix here too much lately, but I have a lot of respect for all the people that make Last Sparrow happen. Enjoy, Dean
  2. I agree with Julio, its like racial slang. If you aren't part of the race, you can't use the word. In other words , if you aren't black , you shouldn't be dropping N bombs.
  3. To me, unless you are from Japan, and a member of a Japanese "business" family, the Japanese suit is out of place. The more you learn about the culture and the history of Japanese tattooing, the "mystery " and fantasy of the work dissolves. What's left is a very rigid culture that is out of synch with western ways. The work is no doubt beautiful when done properly. But think of this, those suits are earned within their culture. When Americans, and other westerners coop the style, the core intent of the suit in Japanese culture, has been stripped away, and we are left with surface decoration mo
  4. I want to travel to Milwaukee to get a tattoo! I've collected some sizable tattoos while traveling . Its great fun and adds a sense of adventure to the whole process of collecting work. And you are getting work from the coolest shop in one of my favorite places.
  5. I didn't know who Holly Madison was. That was one of Hugh's former prostitutes right. Nice try on the property patch removal. The media should throw up more real photos. Or better yet stop tuning into or buying that crap. Our country is retarded. No offense to the developmentally disabled.
  6. We once had a guy in the shop who was of Japanese descent who picked out a number of Kanji . None of the symbols went together. They were chosen for their "look". I feel that symbols and images also function on innate feelings. Everything human is a continuation of activity. There is no start or finish in defining imagery. Certain groups, cultures, clubs, gangs, etc. claim images and restructure them from time to time. This usually takes place as a tool to maintain control over other humans. When a person chooses a tattoo, they have the right to allow that image to speak to themselves however
  7. "tribal" is the ultimate traditional style. I have had the great pleasure of tattooing many of our local Native Americas, with their imagery. It's a real honor to make these tattoos. While these tattoos have a fashion aspect to them, they seem about as "real" as it gets to me. Whenever I work on these folks, it makes me think of the rest of what I do as kind of corny.
  8. Well put Jack! the current paradigm is completely lame, However, I'm having the time of my life doing what I've been working towards for the last twenty years!
  9. Please ....Do not support the Blue Lake convention! See my comments on Shotsies Blog!
  10. Do not Support this convention please. Wrong vibe for tattooing See my comments on Shotsies Blog
  11. Shotsie, if you looked into what this convention at blue lake is really all about, I would hope that you wouldn't support it. I have total respect for your participation in tattooing and you've been on my radar since the beginning. I even own a copy of Tattoo Advocate that you signed for Phil Sparrow. I've been tattooing here in Humblodt County for over 15 years (longest standing artist in the area). I can't speak for the artists or the people of our county, but we are in remote island like culture with a healthy disdain for mainstream America. None of the veteran Humboldt County artist
  12. You own the piece, not the artist, so do what you like, You may have a hard time finding an artist that wants to deal with it for various reasons, however, For you its something you walk around with for life, for the artist, much less of a commitment and another day on the job. Oh well, they can't all be winners.
  13. Congratulations! Hope you have a fun day of tattooing or whatever you choose to do!
  14. Got a ton of em. I'll have to share some of the cooler ones at some point on here.
