London Town

One day late... But still here. 
The London tattoo convention is coming up and as always I will be doing walk-ups only... And as always from premade flash. To those of you who don't know what that mean here is how it will work. 
There will be no appointment. Just drop by my booth and who ever is ready when I am will be next. So drop by and see if there is anything you like and when there will be an opening coming up. 
To peek your interest here is a little snark peak of some of the designs that will be available.

There is still a bunch of the Pinups and evil stuff from previous flash. I top of that there will be a few originals for sale that also will be available as tattoos. I am trying  to make a limited run of prints of one very requested painting so drop by and see which one it is. 
Speaking of limited runs... 
My friend Marco was amazing enough to make a last minute run of shirts for me. They will hopefully reach my Friday morning before the convention. Since it is a last minute order there will only be a few numbers of shirt available. There will be a black shirt with grey print and white shirt with black print. 
Here is a little peak of the screen. 

There will obviously not be any blog post next Saturday since I will be busy tattooing at the convention and waving awkwardly to people and selling merch but I might try to sneak in another post if I find more to show before the convention. If you are in London then drop by and say hi! 

Hope to see you there.

Let Me Make It Up To You...

Those few of you who do follow this here blog might noticed last saturday that something was missing. Did your life feel empty and without meaning from the lack of blog post on this here blog? No? Well, I am sorry to hear that. I did however feel guilty for slacking on my blog duties since I had been doing so well for a while. To make it up to you I post two posts this week!! I know, I know... I spoil you! Not only that but I will also be blogging on my photo blog after this here has gone on the air!! Woooooooo!!! So head over to and see more from my recent Hamburg trip.
But first some tattoos. I know it has been a while... sorry

Can't go wrong with roses.

... Or an eagle.

Kidney tattoo.

I also recently did these two small small paintings for a charity auction/group show. Here is some info from the invite:

"Things&Ink Magazine and Atomica Gallery are collaborating for a second time to present an exhibition of new and original artwork in The Flash Show. 

We are handpicking over 100 of the most talented tattoo artists from across the globe to donate a small postcard size flash drawing/painting to the exhibition, and we would like you to take part. The exhibition will run from 24th September to 15th October 2014 at Atomica Gallery in London.

Each work will be for sale at an affordable set price and all profits will be donated to the unique cancer charity, Sarcoma UK. Sarcomas are rare cancers that develop in the muscle, bone, nerves, cartilage, tendons, blood vessels and the fatty and fibrous tissues, and can affect almost any part of the body. There are more than 13,000 people living with the disease in the UK alone. The charity is run by a small and passionate team, some of whom have been personally affected by the disease."

So please go and support them by buying a small painting or two.

Now I will post some photos on the other blog and then it is time to go paint some more flash for the upcoming London Convention. Remember that I won't be taking appointments but only walk-ups from pre made designs. So just drop by and see if there is anything you like and if there is time. 

See you soon.

Vater Und Sohn

A couple of weeks ago, Kinga and I went to Hamburg to see friends and to go to my friend Sascha's shop, (re)opening party. He has, together with two other great guys, made a name for them selves with this shop, that offers everything you need to be a well groomed urban lumberjack. Everything from moonshine, beard wash, hand made knives and pens to fancy Japanese denim and hand made leather boots. All a true son of Mumford desires. 
They had moved a few stores down, from their previous location, to this spacious beautiful corner shop. 
Congratulations guys.    
If you are in Hamburg go see their fancy... I mean manly shop, 

My good friend and co owner of Vater Und Sohn, 
Sascha Kampmeyer.
