Tomorrow, Tuesday the 30th is a great story or two about Lyle Tuttle at the Tattoo Project in Vancouver, B.C. Part 1 of the story on Tuesday… and some terrific, rare photos of Lyle from the past, WHEN HE WAS A HUNK!

“When you get a little older,” says the Godfather of Modern Tattooing, 79-year-old Lyle Tuttle, “there’s three things to remember: (1) never waste a hard-on; (2) never trust a fart; and (3) never…. ”

Do you know number 3? Take a guess.

For those who have followed Lyle’s long, illustrious career… he has stated unequivocally that he will not tattoo more than one tattoo a day. Well, thanks to Thomas Lockhart, the three of us, Thomas, Vince Hemingson and I were inked with the famous Tuttle signature (that’s three of us) at Lockhart’s West Coast Tattoo, the day after the Tattoo  Project event. History in the making!
