Excerpt: Hot Damn Amsterdam

I could watch Freddy Corbin tattoo Jesuses (Jesii?) all day long.

Of all the tattoo conventions I’ve been to, Henk’s Amsterdam Tattoo Convention was hands down the best. My brother and I went in 1995, which was a few years after this documentary was made. Somewhere I have video from that trip on 8mm tape.

In the meantime, I’ve grabbed a few of the better moments from Stearn’s tape. It’s not the best of his Metamorphosis II output; very little in the way of interviews, Horiyoshi III and Suluape Petelo were sorely underused and there was far too much music (which was cut out in the excerpts I put together) but for the sake of posterity I’m glad to be able to share what I can.
