Tattooing by Guy Aitchison (card)


A lot of the content I post on my various history blogs comes from happy accidents; today I was looking for a piece of correspondence for a post intended for another site and I found a small packet of letters dating back to 1991 from tattoo artist Guy Aitchison. I excitedly scanned a few fliers and business cards to share here on OV and, as often happens, never did end up finding the item I was originally looking for.

This card dates back almost 25 years from when Guy was working at “Guilty and Innocent Productions” with Jack Kaplan.

  1. I’m relatively a newbie by these dates and standards, but EXACTLY about that year is when my world was changed quite a little itself. I remember being about 13 or 14 years old and going to my favorite comic book shop off of Lincoln, Ashland, and Belmont in chicago called HepCat Comics only to find out if was gone and replace by Guilty and Innocent productions. Imagine my dad when I walked thru that door. Probably one of the coolest places I’ve ever seen as a kid. i used to go get comics with xmas and birthday money and still remwmber to this day wanting to buy a shirt but they were huge to me. Also feeling pretty intimidated in a tattoo shop. But seeing this card made me remember that exact day, and how weird biomech looked to me as a kid.And now I tattoo. Lol thanks for the flashback.
