It was your heart on the line

I always love when my work days seem like a mix of work and hanging out with friends. Had one of those days yesterday with our buddy Jon who came to get a little love declaration done. Ms. Ama'r.
A good day with a lot of good music makes a good day at work. Yes sir.

Eckel got the debut album from Mumford And Sons from one of his customers. I had seen one video from them that I really liked but didn't really know what to expect from the rest. You see, I really REALLY hate Irish-kinda folk music and it doesn't get better if you mix it with other genres like punk. No I REALLY don't like Dropkick Murphys!! But these guys somehow managed to slip through the hate net. It didn't take many beats either to convince Jon that this was some serious awesome shit. That's why this video is dedicated to Jon and the proud ship Ms. Ama'r.

A last little update on the San Francisco art show. Here is some cool pictures from the opening night of the "Sream With Me" show at the 111 Minna Gallery. You will have to scroll down almost to the bottom to get to the event.
The show will run for a few more days and all the remaining paintings can actually be bought by contacting Angela by mail for prices and info. Write her on angelarachelleholmes@gmail.com.

upon the wings of Blaaaaack!!!

The opening of the Scream With Me show in San Francisco was a few days ago so I think it's time that I show what I did for it. All 3 paintings are A3 size (+ frame.) and are all for sale at the gallery so hurry up and go there if you wanna get away with one of these evil ladies.
If anyone have been to the show or go there please let me know how it was. I wish I could have been there myself because there is a whoooole bunch of good artist in that show. Pheeww!!
Hope you like the gals... but what's not to like? Sex, skulls and corpse paint. Am I right?

So here they are. Let me know what you think.

I Scream

You Scream

We Scream

And of course this post needs some music video as well. We can't stop the video madness just yet so here is a bit of...mmm... mood music.

One that I like:

...and one for the fancy makeup and funny faces...I mean evil faces...yes!

...a little tip: Try watching the last video without sound...not so scary any more.

In other news...

This here post will be a information post.

First off; Booking!!! Yes! One of the most FAQ! Now we finally have an answer to that question. This is the real deal people. No matter what you have heard about how impossible it is to book with me, it's not true. It is possible to get an appointment. Maybe not next week or month but it's not impossible. You still have to get in contact with my wife Amalie to book with me but she has made a really cool system to try to avoid and slowly get rid of my waaaaay too long waiting list.
Please go to the shop blog HERE. While you are at it check out how fancy she made the Conspiracy Inc. blog. So check out the FAQ there and also please just take your time to read the booking rules/instructions. It all there...everything you need to know. Just take your time. Ok so one more time for the cheap seats. To see how to book with me...go HERE. Thanks to everyone who is patient enough to wait and get tattooed by me! I really really appreciate it!!

Next topic. Japan!! Yep we are going back to Japan... soon. We will be in Tokyo and at Ink Rat from the 5th of November till the 4th of December. To book an appointment with me there you will have to email Hata at Ink Rat Inkrat00@yahoo.co.jp (that's cero's in the end..NOT o's). But to avoid any misunderstandings please send me an email with your idea, placement and size to Conspiracyinctattoo@gmail.com
Still not sure what to do or where to write? Go HERE.
I am gonna have some vacation and some painful sessions with my good ol pal Shige so I don't know how much I will be working so hurry up before the Vacation Fever sets in.

What else...

Again, and this will not be the last time I mention it, GO SEE THE "SCREAM WITH ME" ART SHOW IN SAN FRANCISCO!!!
Check out the site
I will post pictures of my 3 paintings later but I want to wait till after the opening party which is tomorrow. All 3 painting are for sale at the Gallery so if you wanna own a nicely framed painting cheaper than what I normally charge then go see the show.

mmm...what else...

well due to temporary loss of internet I forgot what else to inform you guys about. So that's it.

Here is a picture of Martin's arm. This will be a sleeve of satanic goodness. This is the first part and you can look forward to see the next part soon as he has 2 more sessions this month where we will ad a wolfheaded priest with 13 eyes and antlers...WHAT? Yep! That's gonna happen!!
But for now, here is first part.

Tomorrow I will finally get to see my good friend Jacob play with his band The Kandidate. They will be on tour with Volbeat and Entombed in Europe so go check them out! So far I have missed out every time they have played near me so I am excited to finally see them live.
So why not throw in a little video for our music video marathon?

Some of you might remember him from the good ol days with Hatesphere. I actually even tattooed Anne from the video today. You can go check out the progress on the shop blog.

This video was actually my original idea for today's video part of the post. Nothing to do with the rest but I wanna post it today anyway. Moooody!!

Happy Sunday everyone.
I have been editing pictures for Amalie all weekend. We had a photoshoot with Christel and her sister Jacqueline to show Amalies hats. It was an awesome day and a real educational experience for me. I got to try out different gear and figured out a whole lot about light and composition and stuff like that. So now I finally found the time to edit them. Normally I prefer just taking the picture and make it as good as possible on the camera so I don't need to do any Photoshopping later. I like to take the picture as if it was film. For me that is more photography than if you just snap a picture just to photoshop the shit out of it later. For me that can seem more like photoshop art than photography but in this case I wanted to go crazy and have a old picture kinda look. What I did/am doing is that I have taken a bunch of pictures that I am happy with as they are but then on top of that I edit them to make them look like old Holga-ish pictures with grains and lightleaks and all that shabang. Holga...So hot right now...Holga!
I will post some soon when I am done and Amalie has posted them on her etsy and blog.

I guess I better show a bit of skin to keep you around so here is another lamp...Yes he also loves lamp.

This Music video part of the post is dedicated to my homies in Cancer Bats. A small selection of their videos that I really like. Enjoy.
