I try not to post to much of my personal life on this blog or Instagram. It seems that you guys really just want to see tattoo photos. I am going to make an exception this time. Here’s an overload of my life lately, surrounded by great friends and family. I wouldn’t be able to do what I do with out such amazing people in my life.
I would like to thank everyone that got tattooed in 2012. It was by far one of the best years to date. I hope 2013 will be just as great. It’s only been a couple weeks into the new year and already it is looking great. -JIM
Hey guys, looks like I haven’t blogged since October. So much has been happening and I will do my best to catch up on blog posts. Julian and I just got back to Los Angeles from a trip to Belgium and the Netherlands. We had such a great time, got to see some old friends and made a bunch of new ones. I am already looking forward to going back in 2013 and will post travel dates once they are all set.
Here’s a group shot of us at Inkstitution Rotterdam. (from left to right) Manolo Vera, Julian Zeff, Willy Buwalda, Fiona Janssen, Gabriele Franco, myself and Errol. Such an awesome group of people, Thanks for having us and we’ll be back soon.
After the IBTC a big group of new friends went out for some delicious sushi. (from left to right) Julian Zeff, Myself, Yanni Vera, Guen Douglas, Cora Ortega, Joey Ortega and Phil Kyle.
Took the train up to Amsterdam, and stopped by Salon Serpent Tattoo Parlour to visit Guen Douglas and Angelique Houtkamp.
Big thanks to everyone who got tattooed, bought prints/shirts, and everyone who just stopped by to say hi and hang out. Thank you to all our new friends for being to inviting, friendly and helpful. Our trip would have been nothing with all of you.
Sometimes you just have to do a big ol’ traditional chest piece. You can see/read this from across the room.
I am doing a little bit of traveling in the next few months. As of now I have one open spot left at the Bay Area Convention of the Tattoo Arts at the end of Oct. (SFO) www.bayareatattooconvention.com
I will also be doing a guest spot in November at Inkstitution in Rotterdam Netherlands, so if anyone in the area is interested in getting tattooed email me.
I am also thinking of doing a few tattoos in Boston MA mid December. So if you are interested please email me now. There is only limited time available for a few pieces so it’s on a first come first serve basis.
Please send all emails to JimSylvia@hotmail.com and include all info needed for me to get a good idea of what you want. Size, location, imagery etc…
I am looking forward to seeing old friends and making some new ones, see you soon, Thank You!
