Before your Force Awakens the diarrhea from the sushi you ate last night, let us unveil our Airing of Grievances for this year to warm your hearts this Festivus season. Christ things first, we have a few chores to do around the moisture farm, as we are expecting company with the visit of Richard Stell on Jan. 16th & 18th. Hit him up (Richardstelltattoos@gmail.com) for an appt. as it’s been a while since hes been in the Big Easy. There will be a benefit for our friend English Craig on Jan 17th, talk to Donn about the details. From now until Xmas Eve, get your fix on a bunch of great shop t-shirts. $15 PayPal to Donn@tattooagogo.com or $10 if you stop by da shop. We’ll send some shop swag with your order too. And don’t forget about our gift certificates which last much longer than the Jelly of the Month Club.
As for artwork, all the guys are off Santa’s Naughty List this year, as we’ve been good boys spreading XXXmas cheer one stocking at a time (or panty hose if you do it old school) starting out with ze Matt, who recently designed some new badazz shop stickers (stop by da shop to get ya 1). He’s also been selling various drawings/prints sure to impress all the golden girls in your life–hit him up for da scoop (Chiefwhitelegs@gmail.com). And in the skin lab, Matt recents are a Baron Samedi, Tropical Contact High, Hooter Tat, Cajun Reaper, Death Flounder, Avast, and a lil shoulder cap piece. Be sure you are follow ze Matt’s insta for his sho fly artwork and dweamy eyes.
If ya give Scott a wink—pull his right ear with your right hand, then pat his belly with your left hand…he’ll turn into a swallowtail butterfly. To turn him back just use The Clapper. When Scott’s not fluttering around the solstice festivities, he’s been busy making purdy pictures like a Tomahawk & Rose, koi coverup, some tragedy & comedy masks (as seen right), and even a lil Xmas Ornament. He also has some artwork for sale “Tribute to ? and the Mysterians,” hit him up if you’re interested in it (would make a killa tattoo or nice decor above the fireplace when it’s 80 degrees on Xmas). And be sure you are following him on da insta for an assortment of doodles, paintings, and other musings. Scott makes the world’s most interesting man look like the world’s moderate interesting man.
Kenny’s shoves pennies up his chimney. Or so he told me. I guess anal beads weren’t door busters at this year’s Black Friday sale, which reminds me, did you know Radio Shack sells vibrators now? Team Acid is serving egg nog merriment branded as #allthewaybeyonce. You thought we forgot, but we didn’t. Like Master P says make dem say Uhh Na na na na. In da House of the Electric Eggroll, there’s a secret world of no hunger with Lady Gaga songs set to repeat (or watching her half naked on American Horror Story). When Kenny isn’t dancing the Roger Rabbit he’s shaking his tailfeather needles on his pretties with morsels like Wicked Lady, UFO, Japanese Icon, Trail Mix Can Can, Kali, lips from NYC, along with plenty of flash and naked insect pics on his insta.
I had a dream the other night I was in that Top Gun bar where TJ was Maverick singing “You’ve lost that lovin’ feelin'” But instead of singing to Charlie, it was Deadbolt. Maybe it’s an omen. TJ’s blankets have been a great grab lately, be sure to hit him up to see what he has left to keep you and yours warm during the 2016 summer (which might actually be when winter arrives). Lately, TJ’s been wide like outside with impressive beats as a Kenny portrait (not really, but dat shit is funny), some back action, classic roses w/bling, healed tiger knife, started a Baron Samedi, and cool little pelican as seen right for a visitor from Austria. Along with some awsum sauce paintings for sale on his insta page. Holla at ya boi, brahs.
As he passed through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest, through the sea of swirly twirly gum drops, and then walked through the Harvey Tunnel..Santa Donn is the like the buddy elf of our Miracle on Magazine Street. He’ll even put his syrup on you if you ask him nicely. In Santa’s workshop lately, he’s been toy building designs like a fudo, large scale phoenix with a few lotuses, started a little kappa and koi action, some handala, progress on a dragon half-sleeve with chest plate, and some flower power (as seen left). Be sure to follow Donn on his insta for more #NOLAJapanese magic.
SO…whether you celebrate Festivus, Hanukkah, Christmas, Winter Solstice, or just break bread & wine with your neighbor dressed up as Krampus—we sincerely hope you and all your families have a good one. No prose or hoes needed, unless that’s your tradition too. And of course, go see the new Star Wars movie, it’s only been like 32 years since Return of the Jedi, and we’re hoping to see Carrie Fisher in a thong.
