Occult Vibrations and Foreign Visitation

Posted in Heads Up with tags , , , , , , , on August 10, 2012 by Magadh

This week finds London’s Demian Cervera visiting the bunker. The Westernmost exit is in the Pacific Northwest and with Cervera in town Mags has let me go walkabout in order to attend the Seattle Tattoo Expo as well as catch up with old friends. The fine people at Artcore Tattoo and Under the Needle Tattoo are hosting Cervera as well as a veritable whose who of the tattoo community (dudes like Phil Holt, Joel Kennedy and Jim Miner) so it promises to be a fine weekend indeed.

I’ll have some additional updates as the weekend progresses but wanted to bring Shawn Porter’s Occult Vibrations to your attention. Porter describes it as, “a blog for people interested in the symbolic legacy of tattoo culture” and I think that’s a fairly apt description.  I particularly appreciate the wealth of video Porter has painstakingly converted from VHS to digital media. If you enjoy the history of tattoo and appreciate the better bits of tattooing Occult Vibrations is for you.
