ENTER TODAY & WIN STUFF NOBODY ELSE ON YOUR BLOCK HAS!
Every couple of months we post a new tattoo contest with cool prizes… and here’s the current one. The last contest featured Backpieces and the winner Zoey Hunter from Ft. Worth, Taxas) received a Micky Sharpz tattoo machine as first prize. This time it’s a genuine Ama Leu hoodie featuring a one-of-a-kind design by her famous brother, Filip. Also included is a canvas tote bag (featuring a replica of the Filp’s hoodie design) and several T-shirts with various intriguing patterns (some in kid’s sizes).
The follow-up prize is a copy of the 126-page coffee table book from The Netherland’s LM Publishers, “Horihide—Celebrating the Life and Work of Kazuo Oguri” by Yushi Takei.
This large format volume features introductions in both English and Japanese, plus further intros by Henk “Hanky Panky” Schiffmacher, Doc Forest and Bill Loika. Add to that, page after page of photocopies from Horihide’s Tokai Tattoo Club newsletters, containing tons of far-out info about the Japanese tattoo scene and mucho photos that most Westerners have not been privy to. But, let’s face it, the main feature of this big, 9½ by 12½ volume is the 72 full-page reproductions of Horihide’s full-color paintings of mythological Japanese characters. This rare, hard-to-find collection will be the highlight of any tattoo artist’s or collector’s reference library. It’s also an engrossing page-turner of rare, hard-to-find information. A must-have book, if there ever was one.
Third prize is a box of 40 fabulous greeting cards from Mr. P at TattooedStuff.com. Our favorite!
