We are almost done working on the new location! All of us are really excited about the move and the brand new space. We’ve been working hard to make it our own and there are only a couple things left to do before we can move in. Our new location is just down the road on the second floor of 29 Race Street Frenchtown, New Jersey 08825. It is right next the National Hotel and the sculpture garden, featuring sculptures by Christopher Hiltey from the Merge Gallery. There are a lot of cool galleries, shops, and things happening on that side of town! We can’t wait to be apart of it!
We will be in the new space November 1st, 2016.

London was great! Had fun hanging out and tattooing with my good friends, Guy Sahar and David Kafri.
I went to the London Tattoo convention while I was there.
Got tattooed by Alexandria Wilkey while at Love Hate Social Club London.
Also got tattooed by Emily Johnson at legendary UK shop, Into You Tattoo.
Ended the adventure with The Body Suits Scrolls Exhibition art show at Seven Door Tattoos.
I’m already looking forward to getting back to London again next Spring.
I went to my first Montreux Tattoo Convention this past September. I spent the convention with my good friends Nico and Marnie Cennamo from One Love Tattoo and Water Spirit Tattoo. The convention was great! It was well organized and everyone involved was wonderful. Awesome staff, awesome artists! I had a blast and am looking forward to going again next year!
On July 25th 2015 teams of four gathered along the Delaware River in Frenchtown, New Jersey to parade handmade boats for a charitable cause.
The rules were simple: boats must be handmade without any preexisting boat parts.
Four teams entered the float. They spent half of the summer working on their boats and preparing for the the reveal. Some groups carved and sanded, while others used found objects to keep their creations afloat. Wood, plastic drums, and piping were just some the materials used.
Elizabeth Gilbert contributed $1000 towards donations to the charities chosen by the participants. Cap Roberts donated another $1000 towards the selected charities.
Trophies were made for the coolest boats selected by a panel of judges.
Team Steinbeiser hand-carved a canoe from a solid piece of white pine, paying tribute to the Native Americans that once traveled the Delaware. Hours of chiseling the wood with bare hands resulted in a beautiful creation. These skilled craftsmen’s streamline canoe helped to raise money for the Frenchtown Food Pantry.
The Farm Boys celebrated their agricultural background with their farm themed boat. Reminiscent of a paddle steamer, the boys created their own paddle wheel from a plastic drum, small metal sheets, and a bike on a pulley system to propel their boat through the water. The Farm Boys chose to have their share of the charity money go to the JPS Memorial Fund, which funds scholarships and assistance to pediatric cancer patients.
The Penetrators took a different approach for their boat and created something similar to kayak with a stabilizer. Using six plastic drums, pool noodles as arm rests, and piping to stabilize the weight, the Penetrators made their way down the river. They crafted their own beautiful and hand-painted paddles and came in Hawaiian themed wear. The Penetrators chose to have their portion of the charity fund go to The Upper Black Eddy Fire Company.
Rift Raft created a raft. Using a bike and a wooden paddle wheel, the team peddled their raft along the Delaware. Homemade pontoons were used to keep their wooden frame afloat. Everything in the boat was 100% recycled materials. Rift Raft chose to donate to The Frenchtown Food Pantry.
This first year event was a great success. It was fun creating the boats, getting everyone together, and doing something for a great cause!
If anyone is interested in participating next year, please shoot us an email at email@example.com . We’re going to have prizes, more boats, and the best thing of all is that it’s fun!
