Well despite this usually being our quietest time of the year, it has been far from quiet! Matt has been super busy drawing up artwork for the "Ink Dots & Black Spots' Art show. Opening night is Thursday the 16th August and Matt's artwork, along with a whole bunch of tattooers from Melbourne and NZ to be Exhibited at The Vic bar for a 4 week period, each print will be priced at $60. Sales at the show will be collected and donated to Skin Cancer research - Cancer Council Victoria. Here is the other one of Matt's pieces for the show:
|And a close up view. Lots and lots of dots!!|
|Started the line work for this sweet lady|
|A finished one!! Shit photo's by me sorry, I will get better ones.|
|Another finished one.|
|Actually Matt finished this one a while ago, I only just got pics.|
|Progress, nearly finished.|
|More line work to go in this one but you get the idea.|
|Someone needs some sleep I think. This is an awesome Shoki banner that our lovely mate Crystal picked up for Matt from Japan.|
Also Alvaro Flores is now fully booked for his guest spot (happening in July 10th to 14th). So he is not taking anymore appointments. But if you do want to get a tattoo from him on his next visit you can set that up while he is here. So call the shop to arrange a consultation.
Matthew Gordon and Wendy Pham are looking close to booking out too. So if you do want to get tattooed by either of them you better be quick. Email the shop email@example.com. I can't guarantee there are spots left but again, they want to return again soon, so maybe you could set something up for their next visit?
Matt and I will be in Japan as of next Friday, so please wait till our return for any enquiries for work by Matt or guest artists. We are contactable via email while we are away. We will be back to work 3rd of July (we will only be gone 1 week).
Can I also just take a moment to point out an issue we are having with phone calls. People have been having a go at us for not answering our phone and people feel like they can't get through to someone. So here is the thing, often the tattooers are busy tattooing and I am often out running errands for the shop. So we cannot often get to the phone. We rely on you leaving a message, so that we can return your call, which is always returned promptly!! If you don't leave a message, we will never know that you tried to call!! So no more people getting upset at us for not answering please. The message clearly states that we can't often get to the phone and that you have to leave a message in order to get in contact with someone. There is also a mobile number on the message (if your enquiry is urgent).
