Hey batta, batta, batta…suhwing, batta


Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.

You are now about to witness the strength of Magazine Street knowledge…

♪♬ ♪ Straight outta Chalmette, crazy motherfucker named Dead Bolt, from the gang called Nuggetz With Attitudes… Dats right folks, we back in full–forizzle effect. So grab a fresh set of batteries and strap one on, it’s going to be another wyld azz ride.

Ahem, “ATTENTION ON DECK!” The Colonel Matthew A. Welch is now residing at Tattooagogo! Let’s give him a warm & juicy welcome (tongue optional) in joining our ‘lil fresh beat band.  Matt reigns from Atlanta (but he’s no dirty bird) he’s been a frequent guest artist at da shop for the last 3 years—He will now be tattooing wit us full-time. So for appts., inquiries, and stanky leg with Matt, fleas call da shop @ 504.899.8229, ya heard?

Be there or be dare.

Be there or be dare.

In other news, unless you’re an elf reading this from Santa’s workshop on the North Pole, it be hot azz fuck outchea. Some say it’s “hotter than balls” but I prefer saying “it’s August, betch.” Not to worry tho, coolishness is on da way with our TATTOOAGOGO TAKEOVER!!!  Starting on Saturday, Sept. 5th, until the end of the month, we’ll have an assortment of cool, cool, cool artwork—all NEW & RAD work displayed at The TEN Gallery (event details here). With a special Grand Opening Parteah from 6-9pm on Saturday (9/5), with exotic beverages, food, and entertainment. So come on down, da price is right, bitch (aka FREE), and yo can check out the “art” at other galleries down da street too. It’ll be like da Art Crawl from Bob’s Burgers (without all the anus, well, you never know Uptown…)

Ed Rooney: Les jeux sont faits. Translation: the game is up. Your ass is mine.

All things, for mah pretty.

All things, for mah pretty.

Seasons don’t fear the reaper…come on baby…don’t fear ToeFeel’s Creeper. Da Wicked Son aims to please and tease with a lil anal-ease (now in cherry flavor!) When he’s not center stage flickin’ da booger-blues, yo boi continues adding hits to his solid gold dancer artsinal. A few recent picks from his insta feed shows he’s been busy with gigs, a conv. in San Angleo, rad-a-tat-tat artwork, complete with a new music video better than anything on MTV for last 30 years. Meanwhile, he’s recently completed a pretty apple branch back piece, a flowery arm piece (photo-bombed by Scott!), a skull anchor, cover-up eagle sleeve, vibrant lotus flower, sum silliness on our boy Jon, and made some progress on a Día de Muertos lady back piece. Too many to summarize here, so holla at ’em on da Insta-Mah-Gram (tastes like graham without da cracka).

Grace: Oh, he’s very popular, Ed. The sportos, the motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, wastoids, dweebies, dickheads – they all adore him. They think he’s a righteous dude.

Kenny da Pooh is fresh out of honey and on da search for blood. He’s like that other Anne Rice vampire that doesn’t have a cool name of Lestat. But he’ll still spoon wit ya, if you scratch his belly and whisper in his earYou’re the sexiest ‘Team Acid’ man alive…” And when he’s not Leggo my Eggo-rollin’ he’s spreading his muffin tops of #TeamAcid across the entire universe (now we just have to figure out what to do with all those stumps). But for the meantime, Ken keeps wankin out his hits like a pair of cupcakes for some German tourists, a Team Acid fleur de lis, finished the mushroom wizard on our buddy Jon,  a Tibetan scroll box,  a voodoo doll (without the hex), pair of shrooms, not to mention several radtastic pieces of artwork like this one or others on his insta-feed. Also be sure to checkout Ken’s artwork and follow the Electric Eggroll foodtruck page, mighty cool, except now I’m hungry…

Garage Attendant: You fellas have nothing to worry about. I’m a professional.

Scott Allen’s been as steady as she blows, or at least that’s what he says anyway. Not that she’s a he or he’s a she, well, probably not, but not that there’s anything wrong with that. But the man with two first names is still makin’ all things pretty lately or whatever evil you may beckon to his call for. As of late, da puppet master, has done some unique paintings (this is just one of several on his insta-feed), along with a lil henna/mandala piece and a eye-seeing mandala, and sharp looking Indian maiden as seen left. Recently Scott had a birthday and has hit the beach more than Darryl Hanna in Splash. He might be part-mermaid, part-sea creature actually. I guess it’s a good thing he has so many Hawaiian shirts (he can loan some to Matt too).  Checkout Scott along with the rest of the gang straight mother fuckin’ #NOLATraditional work, all of our righteous own branding.

Ed Rooney: I did not achieve this position in life by having some snot-nosed punk leave my cheese out in the wind.

Jorōgumo by Donn

Last on da 5-course meal at Tattooagogo, Papa Donn is busting fishy farts sweeter than Aunt Mae’s potpourri or just giving us nightmares of our brown acid days. {***Seriously, don’t click that link if you’re on LSD} There are too many ongoing projects of Donn’s to summarize, so give yourself a handsome reach-around and go checka his insta-feed (and there may or may not be photos of sum biscuits too). A koi & lotus sleeve has begun, a chesty lady from a great client, another perfect cover-up, more progress on Shoki the demon queller, vanished another armband with an amazing koi sleeve cover-up, and a owl and snake half sleeve. BTW, there’s always something new happening from Donn & da crew in da #NOLAJapanese hashtag on Instagram & Facebook so make sure you check out our creative wizardry. And if we catch you using our hashtags, we’ll send over Deadbolt with a brick.

…STAY TUNED for more details on upcoming blog posts’ and news for da shop’s 6th anniversary party coming soon in the Orange Goblin month of October, coinciding with Art for Art Sake, and in typical Tattooagogo fashion, of excess food carnage, booze, live music, and virgin sacrifice. Bring your better-half, kids, and stuff. We’ll have more artwork from Matt Welch updated on da website soon. Along with plenty of other stuff we deem non-impotent an’ shit on da Facebook & Instagram. Until then, keep it on da B-side, brah.

You killed the car,
Lard Vader
