Surprise email from Last Rites Tattoo Theatre!

BME has been experiencing some serious email delays. We had a wicked mail server log loop that put the server down for the count. Nothing like System emails failing to be sent and then a huge circle of bounce/failure emails/bounces making it so that email isn’t the quick and tasty technological treat that it should be. We’re still working on cleaning up the gigs of emails and log files floating about so please bare with us while we get that sorted out.

Luckily though this email finally came through and I wanted to share it with you. It seems that the artists Last Rights Tattoo Theatre are having a suprise walk in only day! This includes all of their artists as well as Paul Booth! This is your chance to get a tattoo without having to be on the extended waiting list that all of these artists have been blessed with.While there is a typical “convention etiquette” to their event, with a “first come first served” and 3 hour appointment limits as someone who shared a booth with Paul Booth back in 1999, I can tell you I’ve watched him free hand sketch and draw a full forearm tattoo a few short hours! You’ll be bound to get a tattoo to remember at this event! Don’t forget to check out the Vimby video posted about Paul Booth right here on BME.

VIMBY Video: Paul Booth

Friend of BME, Ary from VIMBY Video, just sent us this new piece profiling a man who needs no introduction, Paul Booth, at his Last Rites studio in New York City. Paul discusses trades he’s made for tattoo work (example: a torture chair), tattooing rock stars, shows off “Skeleton Christ,” and more.
