Mo’o is a Tatau Master, or te Tufunga ta Tatau Sulu’ape Pili Mo’o in the islands, a title that was given to him by chief Sua Sulu’ape A. Petelo, so needless to say when you get tatau by Mo’o you are getting tatau by the best. Mo’o also tattoos marquesian style by machine as well.
Some nice tatau was done, we even got to show Mo’o and Penina around Boston this time – some fresh seafood and desert in boston’s north end!!
Mo’o is off to the world once again, but he will return for more tatau. So if you missed out on it this time, he’ll be back at the shop next time he is in the states. if you’d like to get tatau or marquesian tattoo by Mo’o next time he’s in Boston drop us a line and we’ll get the process started!
What can we say about our time with Loco T….We laughed, we ate, we drank we shot slingshots and oh yeah there were tattoos involved too!! Boston if your looking for some insane tattoo work, i suggest you check out Loko’s portfolio, Loko is gone now….off to Cali, Maui, New Mexico, New Jersey, but he’ll be back in about a month, so don’t worry. you didn’t totally blow it and miss out on the awesomeness
We just returned from the 10th annual Amsterdam International Tattoo Convention, it was quite a trip. Got to Work alongside some of the best tattooers Europe has to offer and see how they do a tattoo convention on the other side of the pond. Rode the trains, trams, metros and buses…saw the van gogh museum, red light district, ate cheese saw a man light off fireworks from his butthole, saw windmills and visited some bars and coffee shops……if you thought las vegas was the city of sin…it aint got shit on Amsterdam!! A good trip and experience…i definately wasn’t in Boston anymore

It was our 3rd year attending the Tampa Tattoofest at the Manatee Convention Center in Palmetto Fl. Our Boothmates this year once again were Mark Longnecker from Endless Summer Tattoo in Coco Beach fl and On Point Ink in Jacksonville Fl.
We did our usual tampa routine – lunch at the “the Pub“, check into the hotel then off to the convention to get set up
The Convention was alot of fun – tattooing, music, food and suspension shows. Got tattooed by Bowery Stan Moskowitz - got to hang with him and Crazy Philadelpia Eddie….Heard some amazingly funny stories – would’ve loved to be a fly on the wall during their haydays!! 1st night of the Siesta Inn Tiki Bar after party was dj’d by the one and only DJ Longneck! We spent most of the nights after the convention hanging with friends Tony Olivas, Loko T, Phillip and Crew from Lucky Draw Tattoo. The stories from the tiki bar will be told for many years to come!!
We missed our flight on Sunday Night and because of the tornado warnings on Saturday we couldn’t get out until tuesday morning, so we drove out to Clearwater and got a room at the Safety Harbor Resort and Spa. We checked out the spa as well as the Tequila Sunrises and Rum Runners at their Tiki Bar…Yes!!
It’s been a crazy month or so around here. Shanghai Kate Hellenbrand Visited the shop in Boston for a week and a half. We were blessed to have her, the knowledge and history that’s in her head is absolutely mind blowing – Everything from Sailor Jerry, Ed Hardy, Mike Malone to the ancient history of tattooing. We got a private edition of the voodoo to vogue lecture that she had given at Columbia University
It’s just about time to head down to Tampa, Fl. again to attend Tattoofest for the 3rd year with Mark Longnecker and the Endless Summer crew. If you’re in the Tampa Florida area and would like to get tattooed by Carissa, e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org for appointments. We always have a blast in tampa, if you’re going to the show, swing by the booth and say hi!
