Thanks Washington!

Ben and I just got back in town from the Jet City Tattoo Expo. Hat's off to Jasper and Tim for putting together a great show. Everyone had a blast working and hanging out. Not to mention, it took place in one of the nicest casinos I've ever been to. Also, a big thanks to our friends at Triumph Tattoo for putting us up. The people in Washington know how to get tattooed! Here's a few pics of that went down...

On another convention note - if you happen to be in the San Angelo, Texas area near the end of this month, come get tattooed. Ben Siebert and I will be attending the 1st West Texas Tattoo Expo. Drop us a line if you're interested in getting some work done. I, along with fellow machine builiders Andy Bolin and Kevin Wathk
e, will be at the expo peddling goods. Click here for information.

Kevin Wathke tattooing at Hell Bomb

Our good friend Kevin Wathke will be tattooing here at Hell Bomb Thursday Jan. 21-23. Kevin is an amazing tattooer specializing in traditional American/Japanese styles. Come down to the shop if you'd like to get a badass tattoo from Mr. Wathke while he's gracing us with his presence.

Chris O'Donnell is one of the best tattoo artists alive today. Check out his VBS.tv Art Talk episode. This interview provides a load of insight and inspiration to both tattooers and tattoo collectors, alike. Mr. O'Donnell is an amazing artist and a down-to-earth, humble person. A real gift to the world of tattooing.

Benjamin "Dagger Cats" Siebert, has done it again! This is his rendition of a classic Jerry Collins design from the 1960's. You can't go wrong with tradition.

Benjamin has been a bit reluctant in adopting his recent moniker. As no surprise to us, tattooers worldwide have embraced it. Only time will tell whether or not it will stick. If you happen to see him out on the town, make sure to holla at "dagger cats".

Keep Wichita beautiful, get tattooed!

Flight of the Valkyrie!

I finally got a healed picture of our counter guy's front panel. Jordon sat like a champion. Three sessions, three weeks, and some serious commitment! If you like what you see, you should come on in and throw down! Be the envy of all your friends, it's all the rage! - Steven

Art Show...

You may not believe it, but here at Hell Bomb Tattoo, we create much more than tattoos. We even create art that's not of the "tattoo art" genre! For those of you Wichitans that may frequent the downtown area for drinks and other activities, come check out some of our new works! Our good friends at the Alibi Room were kind enough to let us display our art. Even if you hate the art, I can guarantee you'll love the bar. Great people and a superb atmosphere. They're located at 919 E. Douglas in Old Town. Above are a few previews... (art will be hanging until the end of Jan.)

Updated Photos of the Shop...

There's nothing like some new flooring to get you pumped up! (and yes, I say that seriously) Especially in a tattoo parlour. If only we could get the exterior of the building to look as nice as the inside, but these things take time. It's our goal to create an environment that's inspiring for us as artists, as well as comfortable for our clients. Nothing's worse than coping with a painful experience while in unpleasant surroundings. Besides, our schizophrenic taste in music is probably enough to keep most people feeling loose anyway. Keeping it classy, one day at a time.

In an attempt to stay in touch with anyone who may care... we here at Hell Bomb Tattoo have decided to go the blog route instead of a traditional website. It's easier and more likely to be updated. Hopefully we'll be able to keep things fresh, but as we are tattooers, we do have a tendency to be a bit flakey. We're artists, give us a break.

Things are starting to get a bit busier around the shop, so be sure to stop in soon to make your appointments to spend your tax return money! What better way to treat yourself, right?

We'd also like to take this opportunity to introduce one of our best friends, Larry Keith. Larry is a permanent fixture here at Hell Bomb.
He's been collecting tattoos for the past
40+ years! If you get a chance to meet this wonderful man, consider yourself lucky. An absolute troubadour of tattoo collecting and tattoo appreciation.
