Nice. You must have so many photos and stories and stuff.

Have you ever thought about putting your pics and stories into a book? I'd buy one.

You know....it seems as time progresses..the art and the people are really all still the same...the style just looks different....

Even the machine stays damn near the same - people keep trying new stuff and it comes back to what was invented around the turn of the century?

I can tell you I am soaking this stuff up.

Food for thought......This is would be a long road trip to hit all the key industry players on their turf with an agenda and maybe a specific focus

It does need to be thought out.

This is not the first picture I've seen of Cliff Raven using a rotary- I wonder why he didn't recommend them, if he was so fond of using them?

l first knew cliff when he was in chicago, he used the rotary, and l talked to him several times RE: Rotary machines, as l was going to try them, but he always said they were ok but not real good to work with and that he prefers the standard machine..l know there is a lot of pics of him useing the rotary, l seen him tattooing in his Hollywood shop , l think it was 1980, he used a regular machine then, maybe he did not want me to know something??? laughing
he was a real nice guy, great artist too, would tell you anything and helped me several times on a few things, l liked cliff...he was ok.
Ronnie Daigle in Rhode Island uses them last time l saw him,,does some great tattooing as well, l tried them once they were goin way too fast for me, l found them awkward to use..
l dont even see any for sale anymore or anyone useing them..?
But l dont get around too much as well..

charlie bockwith had some of best looking tattoos fom the west that I had seen photos of way back then. Bev robinson knew him and cliff well and she was a wealth of photos that helped create my hunger that has kept me in this great profesion of ours

I met an old man at the NTA convention in 2004 that had a Cliff Raven body suit that was about 20 years old and it the colors were bright as hell. Even the yellow was glowing. That man could certainly lay the ink in.
