Happy new year

Well another year is now almost over.
2005 was a fun and very busy year, Alex and I did alot of the art projects we wanted to do and completed some big tattoo projects that we've been working on.
Some of the years other highlights were...
- The Calgary tattoo convention, this was a great convention and I finally got to pay a visit to Smiling Buddha tattoo to say hello to Paul Jeffries.
- Alex and I became members of the National tattoo association in 2004 and this year we attended their convention in Miami.
- The rebuilding of our web site this year was something that we had been wanting to do for a long time and a big thank you to Micheal Wachs for making this happen.
- Alex and I oganized and participated in an art performance including other tattoo artists which took place at the N.I.X. convention in Toronto, special thanks to Damian Mcgrath for helping us with this and supporting us.
- I spent two weeks in Switzerland with the Leu family in July and had a great time visiting them. Filip started a new tattoo on my leg this trip.
- In 2005 we were featured in Tattoo life magazine, Gasoline (music magazine) as well as the latest issue of Tattoo and piercing magazine (on the stands now), also thank you to John Irving for mentioning us in his latest novel "Until i find you"
- The London tattoo convention and art fusion camp, what a great time that was, see my previous post about London in this blog.
- Running off to Vancouver to fill in two backs in four days (see previous post)

Then of course there are all the tattoos we worked on and I would like to thank all of our customers for another great year.

In the new year we plan to make more updates to our web site as well have some new prints and artwork for sale and who knows what else the new year will bring.
Thanks for checking in.

Happy new year!!
