Happy holidays everyone! We got together last night to celebrate our Daredevil family. It’s a real gift to work with people you regard as friends. And a big thank you to @vandalnewyork and ace chef @derrickprince These guys gave us the rock star treatment. If you want an amazing night out in a stunning space with killer food then this is the place. Mural by @tristaneaton just one of many artists on the walls. Other Vandal artists @vhils @hushartist @obeygiant to name a few. Ps turns out @jonclue tattooed @derrickprince 20 years ago!
Got to make a belated anniversary visit to see this Thomas Edison electric pen, on display at the Edison & Ford Museum in Florida. This pen is displayed with the battery set up that would have powered the device. Samuel O’Reilly received a patent for the first electric tattoo machine 127 years ago December 8, 1891 based off of this Edison design. If you’re in NYC you can visit the Edison pen we have on display at Daredevil. #tattoohistory #daredeviltattoomuseum #electrictattooing #samueloreilly
We got to visit with Jimmy @luckysupply and check out the amazing museum collection. If in Largo Florida make sure you stop in to see their collection of tattoo flash, machines and so much more in addition to making quality tattoo supplies and machines.
Here’s a detail of a piece by Ralph Johnson we just acquired for the museum collection. We’re so grateful for all the support that allows us to preserve this work for the public. We hope if you’re in the city you can check out this and other new additions that are on view as part of the #daredeviltattoomuseum #antiquetattooflash #traditionaltattooflash
We hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. We are thankful for everyone who is a part of our Daredevil family, our artists and everyone we work with, our customers and all of our friends in the tattoo community.
