It's all happening here, I've been so busy I haven't had a chance to blog. Plus I have been toying with the idea of getting rid of the blog all together. I just figured that with using Instagram and Facebook, I was wondering if we really needed it? I feel like I might be doubling up on things, since what photo's I post here have usually been seen on Instagram and facebook. However it has been pointed out to me that at least here I can elaborate on what we have been up too. So for now it stays. Maybe I need to make it a little more interesting and personal, I have toyed with that idea too before but do people really want to hear me crap on more than I do?
Anyways, better get into it then eh? So new merch is here! It is fabulous! We have girls singlets (with moth print in Gold), in either white or black. Men's t-shirts (girls can still wear these too) in marble grey, with red tiger print. We also have that same print in black, on a white guys singlet too. We did a really small run of crew neck jumpers, we were just doing them for family and friends but thought we may as well sell a few while we were at it. If they sell well, we will probably get more. So T-shirts and Singlets are all $30, crew jumpers are $50.
Here is our attempt at modeling them, can you tell we are uncomfortable having our photo taken? Well we are....
|Crew Neck Jumper- $50|
|Girls singlet in white/gold print- $30|
|Girls singlet black/gold print- $30|
|Men's singlet, white/black print- $30|
|Guys T-Shirt- Marble grey/red print|
What is more exciting is that we finally have our "photo station" (this is what I am calling it anyways) set up! Finally! Thanks to Lauren who came around to give me some pointers on how I should have the lights, camera etc set up. So although I am by far from perfect at taking pics, I am sure with time I will get there. The main thing is we no longer have to take photo's of people's work out on the balcony- haha! No more getting half naked for all of Hyde Park to see and I am sure that will be appreciated come winter time.
In tattoo news, Matt's finished a few things lately and started many more. So without further a do.....
|Started this fancy lady, with a peacock on her head|
|Finished this one this week.|
|Finished this one a few months back but we didn't have any photo's.|
Vince had both sleeves done by Matt a while back but again, only just got a chance to take some decent pics of them. So they are Rajin and Fujin (Japanese God's of Lightening and Thunder)
Jamie and Simo have been super busy but most of the work is larger ongoing stuff, so not much to report this week. But Jamie did finish this sweet swan:
|The Black Swan|
Guest Spots! Don't forget we have some awesome artists coming in, so it's a great opportunity to get tattooed by one of them. Just to recap:
Mitch Love: From 19th December to the 3rd of Jan. Think Mitch is now fully booked for when he is here.
Aaron Bond: From 19th of December till 20th of January. Still has availability, so you need to contact the shop to book in for him.

Unfortunately we won't be making the Surf n Ink or Adelaide Tattoo convention (we have stuff that conflicts with the dates those two events are on).
Jamie and Simone are away from 24th December until the 6th of February. They are taking 6 weeks vaca- so if you have ongoing work that you want finished best get on it!
