We were invited to visit the studio of Darling Clementine.
Satan the chihuahua, came with us too!
This is Sam Shocker one of the organizers of the Paris Tattoo convention and his girlfriend Myrtille. They were in town for the Jamboree and tattooing at Sacha’s too.
We also did some vintage shopping that day at a shop called The Underground. I found some warm Norwegian vintage!
I was invited by my friend Sacha to come tattoo at his shop in Oslo. Primitive Abstract gronlandsleiret 37 5th floor 0190 Oslo 004748181619
This was the first tattoo I did: getting in the Halloween spirit!
Sacha’s beautiful shop.
Lovely church on an island in a lake.
The last tattoo was so huge that I didn’t finish it. People find sneaky was to get me to come back!
We found this cafe called Bittersweet and the salon next to it in a covered passage. Would have taken lunch there but we had just finished breakfast!
Lovely antique store just across the street.
I also found some illustrated children’s stories in a book store nearby. All located on Im Hof der Wagnerstrasse.
I found this great millinery supply store called Goldknopf, Charlottenplatz 17, where I bought ribbon and fake fur to make collars for this winter and the fabulous facinator you can see me wearing in the photos below.
We stumbled upon the flea market and had curry vegetable soup from the organic food truck.
You thought I was kidding about Dinkel Acker and pretzels? They are everywhere in Stuttgart!
At the supermarket they had built a football stadium out of Dinkel Acker.
This is Jassi’s tattoo:
She let me go crazy with the colors. She also brought us fresh pretzels everyday! Bag of pretzels:
Three of my tattoos last weekend involve beer, ray guns and sausages. Funny idea for a tattoo? Three girlfriends who’s last names correspond to these items, wanted their friendship in memorial. First one was on Melli, who’s hair salon I was a guest. Melli loves herself as a pink sausage, it made her laugh like crazy:)
That’s Melli in the purple wig.
More photos to come!
We went to Lille this weekend. It’s only one hour by train from Paris. The architecture reminds us of Belgium.
I went to Long Beach to check out the oldest tattoo shop in the US. I also was on fourth street also known as “Vintage Row”. Cool trip but very bad traffic on the way back to LA. Should have stayed on the Queen Mary!
