What a great show this last weekend in Montreal! We are all exhausted from the long days of great tattooing and long nights of beer and Poutine with friends. We took a ton of photos and videos and are in the process of editing them and bringing them all to you here. Thanks to Pascal and Pierre and the Tattoo Mania crew for once again going the extra mile to make sure it was another successful year and to keep pushing the envelope with this roster of international tattoo talent.
We arrived on the Thursday to the Tattoo Mani opening BBQ to meet up with many friends like Kurt Wiscombe and Alex Adams of Tattoos for the Individual, who were in town with their long time friends the Leu Family to have Kurt and Filip do a collaborative project of three back pieces, one each day! This already made for an exciting buzz to the show and I was looking forward to seeing this all unfold.
Many other familiar faces like Tin Tin of Paris, Dan Allaston, of New Moon Tattoo in Ottawa, Darren Rosa of Rising Dragon in NYC, and my friend Roonui, of local studio, Tahiti Tattoo joined us for the party. Good food, and great times with old friends, and the show hadn’t even opened yet.
