It was insane. The next show was on the West Coast in Hollywood about a year later. Same big crowds, same mad interest. You had all these big name movie stars and rock stars showing up to gawk at the artwork. After those first shows, I got busy with other projects, tattooing and working with the magazines, traveling the world tattooing, and the work all went back into storage. Should be an interesting event. Robert Williams himself was one of the early supporters of the idea.

There was this one guy who will remain unnamed who sat on the material for like 8 years, promising to get us a book deal with a big publisher, but it never happened. Then, Johnny Depp came along and said he wanted to publish it, and even offered to sponsor a traveling museum show.

Ironically, right after Depp came into it, the other guy finally came back with an offer from Rizzoli.

But it was too late. At that point I was already sick of waiting for him, so of course I made a commitment with Depp to do the thing, seemed like the best way to go at the time. Well, Depp ended up dropping the ball too, and then I was right back where I started. No book.

Life went on. I was busy with a thousand other projects, so the book idea just went on the back burner and stayed there for a long time. Meanwhile, I retired from tattooing and started writing other books. After that was in the bag, he asked me what else I had and I told him about the Flash book.

He shopped the concept to a few different publishers and came back with a decent offer from Powerhouse. Were these friends of yours? Or did they just happen to stumble into your shop because of your name?

Never, man!

The good old herd mentality. The VIP list goes on. Even Vanilla Ice was lining up for an appointment, much to my embarrassment. But hey, it was the 90s, right? Everyone who was anyone — or thought they were — was clamoring for ink from me back then. Others I got to know through tattooing, like Jarmusch.

A few of these guys became lifelong friends. There were others I never saw again. People tend to come and go around tattooing, which has always been an essentially transient art form. The lifestyle is pretty much part of an outsider culture, at least it was back then. In that sense, there was always a certain bond of complicity between someone like me as this outsider artist and all these eccentric off-the-wall artistic minded celebrity types.

Life in the fast lane and all that, it all just kinda went hand-in-hand, like beans and rice laughs. What brought about this decision, to give up your very successful trade? I just needed a new outlet, a means of expression for all my adventures, thoughts, dreams, nightmares and visions; a vehicle for the kind of personal exorcisms and explorations most people can relate to at their core, but rarely have the balls, drive or talent to take to the limit.

After over 3 decades in the tattoo world, I desperately needed a more authentic medium, artistically. I learned that from tattooing all those years. So I set my goal to be a writer and I wanted to be a good one. I knew that would take total focus and dedication, No more time for tattooing, so I gave it all up to write. So after decades in the chair, it was just time to move on.

Even though I lived and breathed tattooing back in the day, on some levels I guess there was always this perverse part of me that never let me feel I fit in with the crowd. Any crowd.

It was no different with this so-called Tattoo Industry I suddenly found myself at the center of. See, I was pretty much orphaned by alcoholism in my family of origin, so from an early age I was kinda raised by wolves, running the streets of Hollywood and New York City, hitchhiking around the country and living on the edge. Eventually, I took to the road in Mexico and South America, working on ships and traveling the world, and I never really looked back.

I was on my own from about the age of twelve, so my real family and school were always the streets, bikers, beatniks, winos, weirdos, druggies, hustlers, criminals and whores. For me, the artistic part came later.

Much later. Eventually, it all just jumbled together and took over my life, like a kinda weird fucked up Frankenstein monster creation. A couple of years ago I rode a motorcycle across South America all alone.

These days I hang out with my girlfriend and a few other close friends in an artistic and spiritual community that I love and can relate to.

It came out on HarperCollins last year, and it did pretty well, got hundreds of 5-Star reviews on Amazon. NARCISA was a work of fiction, nothing to do with tattooing, which surprised a lot of people who only knew me as this famous tattoo guy.

Suits my lifestyle a lot better. The first volume of a 5-volume tattoo memoir series is coming out early next year on Turner Publishing with a really cool original cover by R.

Do you plan on more books? I turned him down flat.The first tattooists also figured out that using bold outlines, complimented by solid color and hard shading, was the proper technique for creating art on a body that would stand the test of time.

Third world, blue-collar lifestyle.

Workhorse Irons Tip Brush From 2. Over the decades of my tattoo career, especially working with the magazine and writing all these articles about tattoo history, I got to know many of the old school tattoo masters pretty well.

It's arguably one of the oldest art forms that was ever really practiced by ancient man.
