Yushi Takei on the Road

Yushi_Takei_Tattoo.jpgFor about ten years now, I've been running into the wonderful Yushi Takei across the globe at conventions, including the Brussels tattoo show this past weekend. Yushi has been specializing in traditional Japanese tattoo since 1998, bringing his own unique interpretation to the art form.

Yushi is currently working at Schiffmacher en Veldhoen Tattooing, home of the original Hanky Panky in Amsterdam, but will be traveling extensively for conventions and guest spots. Here's his schedule, which is largely a list of the top upcoming tattoo conventions. 

* This weekend, November 20-21, is the Wildstyle & Tattoo Tour in Austria. The 15-year-old tattoo fair is entitled "The Reunion of the Original" and will be drawing top artists including Jack Rudy, Bernie Luther, Shinji Horizakura, and many others.

* December 3-5 is the 20th anniversary of the Berlin Tattoo Convention. This is going to be a huge show (more so than usual) with many tattoo legends in attendance as well.

* January 28-30, Cape Town, South Africa hosts the Third Annual Southern Ink Xposure. Check their impressive artist roster here

* February 11-13, in Italy, is the 16th Annual Milano Tattoo Convention, a massive event that has drawn 10-15,000 people.

As for guest spots, Yushi will be at Frith Street Tattoo in London and White Light Tattoo in Berlin next month, and in February, he'll be at Italian Rooster in Milan. From March on, Yushi is tattooing at shops in LA, NYC, Seattle, Japan and other cities so check his site for further details and more from his portfolio.
