I hope you enjoy them. Thanx again for all of the work you do to get great art put out to the world. Cheers.

LETTER FROM HAGERSTOWN

Posted in Letters by misterroadtripper on January 12, 2011

Good morning, Bob:

I only discovered your blog several weeks ago but have since become a daily follower. So many of the blogs out there seem to be hit or miss with regards to updates or topics of interest but yours has become a staple of my day. Thank you for that! (Of course, the Friday pinup ain’t bad either!)

I wanted to share a photo(s) of my latest tattoo addition. It’s a Henning Jorgensen design but the work is done by Alfie Lamberger.of Marks of the Spark Tattoos in Frederick Maryland. It’s not quite done as we still have a touch more white to do in the stripes/chest and green for the eyes. There’s also a Daruma hiding on the underside of my arm left to color. Completion is slated for later this month.

I always enjoy seeing the great work that lesser known one man shops are turning out. Too often the big name players get all the cred while the smaller shops operating in the small towns can all too easily go unnoticed.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy my beautiful big cat and I’ll look forward to always reading your blog.

P.S. You certainly live in a beautiful area. My brother lives in Corvallis and each time I’ve visited, I’ve been tempted to relocate from the east coast and join him in Oregon.

Regards,
Steve Bradford
Hagerstown, Maryland

Dear Bob,

First of all, let me wish you a happy new year. Also, thank you so much for the Christmas card. I love your blog but I don’t sit and go through it as often as I should. I’ve noticed that the Skin&Ink magazine has gone down hill, since you are no longer there. Just as we had predicted. Sorry that I haven’t been in touch more lately. I have been juggling a number of things including a pursuit in painting. I have attached a few of new pictures from the tattoos that I have been working on, as well as a pdf file of a recent ad (featuring your wife Mary’s backpiece) that ran in the Stranger here in Seattle. I will be making more of an effort to stay in touch and keep you updated with what I’m up to. I have been teaching myself to paint and it is a lot of fun but my time management is always a challenge. I will send you more pictures soon including a painting that I’ve been working on.

Best wishes, Vyvyn (Madame Lazonga’s Tattoo, Seattle, Washington) Note: Click images to enlarge.
