my Trip to Amsterdam

Filed under: tattooing — yonizilber @ 11:12 pm

my first trip ever out of my country  was Amsterdam ,i decided i want to be a tattoo artist when i was 17 years old,and after i got refused in the only shop i know i can learn best. i started my trip to look for apprenticeship , Amsterdam seems to me like the best place to start , i heard about hanky panky and i said to myself i`ll go there first , i bought one way ticket , told my family i will come back only as a tattooer , the first thing i did after landing , is going to hanky panky`s shop with a bunch of my drawings and try my luck , i got “kicked out “of the shop preety fast , i did try again and again but it didn`t work .

I was walking around tattoo shops for a little more then a month when I realize , its not easy :).

I went to England from their , but here the story get longer and longer , ill stay on the Amsterdam story .

anyway time pass and i was lucky to meet avi vanunu in Amsterdam and i got back to Israel and eventually got an apprenticeship from him.( thanks avi)

since then i`ve been in Amsterdam many times .

About 19 years pass (I started tattooing few years after so i`v been tattooing about 15 years now), and i`ve got invited to work at the world famous tattoo museum own by the one and only hanky panky , what a circle of life.

I was very honored to be working at the museum and I felt like it was kind of a crazy circle of life in a way , anyway here are some of the tattoos I did .

i tattooed 3 of my favorite people on Amsterdam monica , samantha , and amar

monica is a tattoo artist that when we met she was a famous dj and a tattoo collector and we`ve been friends for many years , samantha is a close friend as well and she does body piercings at classic ink and mods in Amsterdam ( great shop as well )

And amar is just an amazing person good friend and incredible tattooer .

and justine ( with the dragon )from Germany was a great costumer


please if you in Amsterdam go and check out that museum it an amazing place .


the redness on monice`s tattoo is from a numbing cream she used before we started

my Trip to Stockholm

Filed under: tattooing — yonizilber @ 9:31 pm

Stockholm ink bash is one of my favorite convention. i`ve been there from the first one 16 years ago and since then i went every year except i missed about 5 or 6 of them , it is great convention with great people , i have a lot of local friends there and i always happy to see them .

i started going there as an helper to avi vanunu from psycho tattoo in tel aviv ,that i was apprentice under and now as a tattoo artist .

i do hope that i will be visiting again next year and the year after .

while i was there this year i got to tattoo some fun designs and super good costumers , here are few of them . all free hand and done at the convention .  

the first one is a tibetan style lotus flower and the other two are wish fulfilling gems
