    I was in NY this past weekend picking up my dad's car... my mom wanted to give it to my oldest daughter after my dad passed away last october.

    When I got home I trotted over to Lost Soul Studio to get some work done

    This was my first time with this guy

    I was never quite happy with my pinup girl tattoo and thought I'd get it touched up to fix some errors in the previous guys work... the original artist has been MIA for quite some time

    The shading was off, the face needed some work and some of the lines were missing bits

    <%ThickBox(|Bass Clef|fade)%>

    so I was in the chair getting 2 new tattoos and the touch up... it took from 10am till after 6pm

    Chris @ Lost Soul Studio

    He totally reworked my pinup and made her pretty

    He did a bass clef on my inside left wrist and most important to me designed a tribute tattoo for my left arm.


    My dad was my best friend and I miss him a lot, being in NY for even a brief period of time freshened his death right up, and driving to Wisconsin in his car all alone gave me time to think way too much.

    Me and Pop spent a lot of time hanging out, playing pool, drinking coffee and talking. He had a black fedora he wore all the time.

    So I tell this to Chris, tell him I want a pool cue a cup of coffee and of course the fedora. I even gave him the hat itself to use as source material

    He came up with a great concept and I let him go to town, he chose the colors and the layout I honestly didn't even look at it after the rough sketch.

    Chris even took the time to ask me how Pop took his coffee (light no sugar.. milk.. never ever creamer) and he mixed a color and showed it to me before he put it on.

    I love this guys work and will be going back soon for him to start on my back piece and if you are in the area.. look him up.

    Check out Chris' work

  • Perhaps you're wondering...

    hey John.. where the hell are the girlies???

    well let me tell ya.. after fighting with mysql and my host for the better part of a week to get the site running again I get a mail from my host telling me that they are moving my sites to a new server with all these new bells and whistles and all that happy horse shit.

    now they didn't give me a firm date but it should be sometime this week, and they'll give me a couple hours warning

    gee thanks...

    as a result I decided to take the time to make a nice clean full backup of all my data so when they mess it up.. oops I mean IF they mess it up I have valid up to date data to restore up to them...

    I have some stuff planned in the coming weeks, including a new set from Roxy Tart, some love for my newest fave photographer Ryan Armbrust from Sniper Photo, a feature on Miss Kitty Pratt and maybe a new section on my favorite places to buy stuff for the ladies in my life like Pinup Girl Clothing and Kuhmillion Lingerie

  • This is not a Pinup Related Post

    But read it anyways

    Do you know these people??

    Storm's Cellar: Un-Wise

    Everyone should go read this... Anne and I do a fair amount of charity related stuff (IE FUCK CANCER bracelets and donation to Shriner's Hospital) and even though we didn't get hit by these people some of you might have... either way you should read about these "people" and pass it along to your friends. Folks like this need to be stopped, arrested, jailed, and, if it was legal, publicly flogged.

    My experience with pinup related people tells me that if someone is in need you do your best to help them out

    These people, The Wise's, take advantage of that generous nature and use it for their own personal gain

    and that pisses me off to no end.

    repost it where you can...

    let's do our best to stop these fucktards and those like them

    <%ThickBox(|John & his bass)%> <%ThickBox(|Anne & John)%>

    well since you asked I thought I would take a moment to tell you about me

    ok no one asked by I'm gonna tell you anyways

    I was born in NY in 1968 and lived there till 1998 then I picked up and moved to Wisconsin

    I started playing bass at the tender age of 7 when George Gokey from my Uncle Joe's band The Cartoons cut two strings of my lil acoustic guitar and taught me a few punk riffs

    I went on to get my Bachelors degree in Music

    Today I work in IT, by day I'm an IT director for a non-profit and at night I design websites
