I love finding this kind of stuff floating around on the internet. I think it was Liorcifer who posted it over on Last Sparrow; filmed at a tattoo convention in St Paul Minnesota in 1978, featuring Elizabeth Weinzzirl, Spider Webb, Bob Raven (I think? Hairdresser who worked on the Strip with extensive Cliff Raven tattoos) Vyvyn Lazonga and more.
The old guy with the pencil thin mustache steals the show. Anyone have any idea who he is?
The rain has started and allegedly Hurricane Irene is on her way. My creepy little dog is sitting by my side as I convert more aging VHS video over to digital files and listen to the storm.
Today’s video is another excerpt from the horribly titled ‘Colored People Invade San Diego’ featuring the legendary Elizabeth Weinzirl (June 2, 1902 – September 8, 1993) being interviewed by Crazy Ace Daniels. Elizabeth talks about her introduction to being a ‘tattooed lady’ and shows off some really great old tattoos; Bert Grim work recolored by Don Nolan no less.
I have some Lyle Tuttle footage captured and being processed now. Should Irene not kill me, it’ll go up soon.
