Slow Slow, Quick Quick, Slow
Welcome back friends and family of Speakeasy Tattoo Los Angeles. Here we are again! Happy Mother’s Day to all of you moms out there. What are we talking about this week? To be honest, I don’t have the slightest clue. I have a few subjects in the bank of my Scattered brain, but these past few weeks have been far far far too busy to organize my thoughts into a coherent post.
So where does that leave us this week?
How about this week we just do a minor shop update? All of the speakeasy artists have been hard at work both tattooing clients as well as creating fine art. Things are in the works that I don’t think I am quite ready to disclose at this point… hint, hint. At this shop we try to maintain our fine art skills just as much as our tattooing skills and hold that at equal importance as the actual tattooing. While yes we are ultimately a tattoo shop, we are also a studio and gallery for fine artists. Ive been spending countless hours hunched over some aptly-named Arches paper creating my own pieces. Also have been working in time to tattoo in between sweeping the floor and making trips to wherever the job of an apprentice takes me on any given day. Look at this guy tattooing in this pic here. What a handsome lad in a dapper hat. On top of all of that we are also a collectible motorcycle storage unit. All the more for me to wax. And wax. And wax again.
Without getting too far ahead of ourselves, it is seeming like the coronavirus nightmare here in Los Angeles is nearing its waning days. So far almost the entire staff is completely vaccinated and on our way to our own mini herd immunity. With this means some shake ups at the shop and some changes are in the wind.
That is about all I can give away right now. Just keep in mind that’s there are some things on the horizon and the latter part of 2021 should at least be able to make up, in part, for the utter garbage that was 2020 and the earlier part of 2021. So watch this space while you can. In the meantime, check out the artists galleries which are updated relatively frequently. Art auctions will be held online for anyone interested and getting their hands on some fine art to freshen up their living space in the post Covid era. That is about it for me. My mother is visiting Los Angeles from the bay area so I am admittedly a little distracted at the moment. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and don’t forget: everything is relative in this world, while change alone endures.
