How have you been?
I have been up to all sort of things! So many that it has been hard to keep up and get back on updating you few guys left here on this blog, but I haven't forgotten about you or given up on the blog. It's as always just really hard to live up to the standard that I have set for myself and the idea of the next post being really amazing. So instead of posting something, which would be better than nothing, no new posts makes it to the internet. Well, here we go again. Lets skip this and get into it. Let's try to reconnect. Let's get reacquainted. Let's get up to date.
Last time I told you guys, that my friend, Electric Pick, was in town, visiting. Yeah well... he is now living in the house and is working besides me at Conspiracy Inc. That's right OG Conspiracy crew back together again! He is currently taking bookings for both smaller and bigger pieces so get a hold of him to get one of his amazing pieces. Rumours has it that he has a bunch of ideas of new things that he really wanna try to tattoo. Especially these really cool flying or floating houses. Super cool ides...he just need someone to tattoo them on. Get on it people!
Another thing that happened since last time is, that I have for filled another childhood dream. Getting a Harley Davidson. Since I was a kid I have dreamed about getting a Harley Davidson. For many reasons that dream had always seemed impossible and something that wouldn't be happening to me. But it did! Things fell into place and my dream became a reality in May after taking my drivers licence in the early months of spring. Here she is! My 2017 Harley Davidson Dyna Street Bob.
Doing this, is one of the most amazing things, I have ever done and I can't believe where it takes me and what roads have been opened up to me... pun intended. I want to go places, I never felt like going to before. Since getting my baby it has taken me from Berlin to Copenhagen, Denmark. To Bergen in Norway. To Prague with my buddy Adam Guy Hays, who himself have been possessed by this love for riding a machine on two wheels. I tell you guys, all the cliches are real! It's all true! It is freedom on two wheels. What a feeling riding with the wind in your face, smelling your surroundings and watching amazing landscapes fly by. Things you never get to see or feel while driving inside a car.
I can go on and on about how great this feels and what it does to me but I don't think you would care and I don't think we will cover much more ground in this here post, so I will try to wrap it up as fast as I can!
But I can't let the subject go completely because it is a part of what is coming.
I will go to New York in a few weeks and I can't wait to go ride in the states with my Brother Adam Hays. This trip will only be a taste of what is coming. If everything goes as planned, we will be going on a longer adventure next year. New York to San Diego and maybe back. Unfortunately that won't be on my own bike, but there is a sweet substitute waiting for me and I am excited to ride through USA with Adam.
Should you want to watch some of my adventures on the bike, you can check out my YouTube Channel. I will insert a video here... Ok two....
First one of me and my beloved dog, Lucifer riding together.
The second one is from my ride to Bergen.
I'm still learning how to edit the videos and make it more interesting to look at so bare with me. I am also planning on doing some Vlog episodes soon so stay tuned for those... even better subscribe to the channel and since you're there anyway maybe press that like button.
I want to make stuff happen on the channel and I hope it will encourage me to keep this blog alive running alongside the videos.
I hope you guys will help and encourage me on this new travel. This new motorcycle adventure is something that I am very very passionate about and therefor something I want to share with you all. Hopefully you will all come with me on this ride and see where it takes me.
To begin with there will be mostly motorcycle stuff on the channel, but I am planning on mixing my tattoo life in the videos from time to time and sooner or later the channel could become a good mix of both. But let me know either here or in the comments on the channel what you guys think and what you would like to see. One thing I will try to maintain on the channel is to keep it positive so keep it light people. There is too many keyboard warriors out there. If you don't like the videos... then just don't look at them. No one forces you to look at them. It's your free choice, so keep the comments constructive and positive to improve the content.
Looking forward to hear from you.
My special little guy, Lucifer, have had a rough year with an operation for two slipped discs and a new allergy, but this 13 year old puppy is tough as nails and keeps going strong. After a period of dog physiotherapy he is back to being his playful self. From barely being able to stand to running and playing again, I am happy to say that Lucifer is back to his normal self.
He actually gets excited when his motorcycle bag comes out and I ask him if he wants to go ride the motorcycle. Best!!
Kinga have also been daring enough to go on the back of the bike a few times. I hope to be able to share more trips on two wheels with her.
Now I think it is time to look forward a bit. We can't keep dwelling on the past, now can we?

Before I go I want to mention that since I will be in New York this year for Halloween there will be no Halloween walk-in day at Conspiracy Inc. THIS year but we hope that we can pick it back up next year. So start thinking about something cool to dress up as next year for the Conspiracy Inc. Halloween bash!
