El Capitan – Erik Braz ’08

Dug this up recently and finally found a good spot to hang it up in the studio. Some El Capitan flash by my good friend Erik Braz who was tattooing @ Shiva, back in the day…

Erik currently tattoos in São Paulo, Brazil and you can check some of his stuff out on instagram.

Liam & James, Shiva, 2007

The original Liam ‘Gasman’ Clarke & James ‘El Capitan’ Hook @ Shiva, Greenwich, SE10. 2007. Back in these days I was just workin’ at the old shop part time, whilst Liam was the shop manager and body piercer. Great guy, good friend and I loved working with him even though I wasn’t around the shop as much back then. The shop, really, really has changed; that was even before the ’14 move!! Looks like some sort of kaleidoscope here…
