Hello friend,

my original sketch

So last night I shared a wonderful bond with my bro over a tattoo gun on my

forearm.    The tattoo took as long as one SNFU album (something green and

leafy this way comes) and two Minor Threat albums. Quality time with family… there is nothing better.

Nick and Dustin were both quite happy with my

A Collection of Tattoo Guns

little knitted tokens of thanks, if I am lead to believe correctly.  The guys at Five Fathoms are solid and Ben stayed late to allow Nicko to finish up on me.  Nice guys.

Lastly, I positively love love LOVE my new tattoo.  It’s just so… ME!  My favourite part is the simple addition of the little sparkles that Nick added.  They really make it, and also tie it to the four point stars that surround the Nuu Chah Nulth moon a bit further up on my arm.

My New Tattoo!!!

I’m sort of a genious. (And not at all modest.)

Hello friend,

So, I’ve just finished my two little knitted tattoo guns.  They’re SO CUTE!!!  I think they quailfy me as a JEENYUS!

I want to make more, but I’ll do those for me when I have more time… These two, as I mentioned in a previous post, are for my brutha, Nick Matovich ( who is in town this week doing a guest spot at Five Fathoms, and for Dustin at Five Fathoms who is rad and has a great shop ( and they are made in trade for the work Nick’s giving me tomorrow after work.\

Oh, and did I mention: YIKES!!! It’s been a while…

I’m super happy with how they turned out since it’s been such a long time since I’ve had to actually LOOK at a tattoo machine. Yes, all those hours doing sterilisation actually served a purpose in my life and now seem strangely relevant.

Anywho, goodnight for now. I’ll probably post again tomorrow night with pics of my new tattoo, if I’m not too much of a vegetable and if I remember to charge the batteries in my camera.  I want a picture of Nick tattooing with my knitting.  It’s a beautiful circle, really.  Me, interpretting Nick’s art form through mine; Nick likewise interpreting mine through his…

Knit or Die!

Emergency Knitting

Hey, Friend.

I just made a deal to trade knitting for tattoos. Now I have to knit up 2 tattoo machines before Thursday. All other WIPs are on HOLD UNTIL I FINISH THESE!!! Well, I will finish the little knit shit I’m making for Anita, because I only have about 30 minutes left work on it. But after that…
Or maybe one of them could be felt?
I’ll get this under control and keep updated.

Suggestions on execution are greatly appreciated, because I have no idea how this is going to work.

knitified out.
