Sooo... It has been a while...again! This time i feel more than ever that there has been a good excuse for the long break. You see, other than being super busy working and making stuff ready for the London convention, we have been waiting for some news. News that I felt was so important that I needed confirmation before blogging about it.
Some, or maybe even most of you already know about this by now but for the rest of you, here it is...
Conspiracy Inc. including Amalie, Lucifer and myself (and all our stuff) is moving to Berlin. Yes, Berlin as Berlin, Germany.
There is so many things to tell about this new adventure of ours and I am sure that many of you will have many questions about this. Before you spam us with all these questions, take a look at the Conspiracy Inc. Blog and also keep an eye on it for further updates because this thing is so new that we still havn't figured everything out yet. So please be patient.
So from December this year we can be found in this red building of ours in Schöneberg, Berlin. I know that it is short notice for those of you who haven't finished your tattoos yet and I am sorry about that. Just be happy that we didn't move to Japan. I will try to come back once in a while but I don't know when or how often so please remember that Berlin is right next door. I am planing on working weekends if that can help people out a bit. I have to say that I am super happy and grateful that all the customers that we have told this has been super excited and supporting about this and we are looking forward to see them in Berlin. But enough of this. Again... Keep an eye on the Conspiracy Blog for updates.
This place will be epic, I tell ya!! If you thought that the old Conspiracy was awesome then wait till you see this place! See that red building in the picture? Yeah, thats all ours to play with!! Whaaaaat? Yep! This will be our home and shop and playground!! I could go on forever about all our plans but I feel that I need to get this post finished so it can hit the internet in this century!
I so wanna talk more about the move but let's move on a bit! Other things is going on while we are planning our next step towards world domination.
For example the London convention.
I decided to continue the walk-in flash thing from last year and it was a success! Working like that makes my convention so much easier and stressless... well stressless while I'm there because as always I have to make stuff in the last minute before going. This year I wanted to do some new paintings for the convention. This resulted in a brand new Rose flash set. 5 sheets of only roses. This came "handy" at the convention where I ended up free handing 3 hand roses from the with the set as reference. Awesome!! I finished a few other paintings that we made a limited run of prints of plus a few older ones that I never got to print before. There is still a few left so check out Conspiracy Inc. merch section.
I also did a few tattoos from last years metal flash but I am gonna save them for the ongoing Black Metal Book project so you will have to wait a bit to see them.
Preview of the rose flash. For sale on the conspiracy Inc blog.
As always we were working together with the awesome and talented Chriss Dettmer. The convention went smoothly and we met a bunch of old friends and got to meet a few new ones as well. Unfortunately I can be somewhat of a social retard so sometimes I get too shy to walk up and say hi to people. Other times I just have a hard time recognising people from the internet. So if i didn't say hi it was most likely one of those reasons. Next time you see me... just come say hi to me... I promise I will be nice.
A huge thank you to everyone who got tattooed or bought merch or just came over to say hi! It meant a lot to us!!
Ok, gotta move on... still so many things to tell.
Ok. Next topic...
We will have a guest at our shop next week. From the 24th to the 28th of october our new friend Davee Blows will do a few cool tattoos so check him out HERE if you have facebook or see some of his stuff on the Conspiracy Inc. Blog. Looking forward to be working with this dude for a few days!
He will also be joining me and the Dino Baby for our annual Halloween tattoo bash. This unholyness will take place on Saturday the 27th of october most likely from around 14:00 till as late as we want. Same rule as last year, walk-in from Halloween flash and it is half priced if you're dressed up... Well sheet over the head doesn't count... make an effort for the discount people. Even if you don't wanna get tattooed then dress up and drop by for some snack and beers and stuff. Come hang out and have some fun. It will most likely be the last Conspiracy Inc. party in this shop!
So bring your ghoul or what ever hellbeast you're friends with , and help os make this an awesome goodbye Halloween.
If you forgot how awesome it was last year then check it out HERE.
Ok. I have been writing on this post for three days now so I better finish up soon.
But I have to remember to tell a bit about some different paintings I did. I did a design for a Limited Edition Halloween shirt for Mastodon. Do you think I was super stoked to get asked to do that?? How about hell fucking yeah!!! I will show the painting when I get the shirt.
I also did a painting for my good homie Electric Pick. You see, he has been working on publishing his comic The Red Box and he wanted a bunch of artist to do a little thing for it. Go preorder it NOW!!!
One more thing though!!
We will be back in Japan from the 30th of october till the 16th of November. I will be doing a few tattoos at Inkrat Tattoo as always. So if you wanna get something done then send Hata a mail with size, placement and idea and if you are on a budget or not.
You can write him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions about design or other things send me a mail on email@example.com. If you book in you can email me anyway so I know what I will be doing before I get there.
Ok!! I think that has to be it for now. Dinner is almost ready and if I don't press send before eating it will be another day before you see this!
See you all soon!
