I miss this guy more every day. I had the pleasure of tattooing several Sturgis rallies with him and he always made things brighter.In case you don't know, Bob was one of the first National Tattoo members,was a key figure in the original Tattoo magazine(when it was the only one),was a founder of the A.P.T. who helped legalize tattooing in NYC and Massachussets.(that's right kiddies tattooing used to be a crime in some places!) That's Bob and Sonny at the Knuckle, Bob with his freak out,fork glasses and Bob and myself.I think these were all from 2003. Hard to be sure , Sturgis always got a little fuzzy after day 9 or so!
January 1990. I was 14 years old and already stick poking my first tattoos on myself and a few unfortunate friends. I was stuck out in bumfuck Georgia when this issue came out without a whole lot else to do but pore over the pages again and again. This pretty much cemented in my mind what I wanted to do with my life! ....Alvarez
