Jimmy Wong’s 1st World Tattoo Arts Festival & Exhibition

When Jimmy Wong told me last September that there was going to be the first international tattoo festival in Bangkok, there was no way that I was going to miss it. I have never had the chance to attend a tattoo convention before and because Jimmy is one of the organizers of this seminal event, […]

It’s my last night in Bangkok—for this trip—and I am standing outside the 7-11 on Soi 5 waiting for Jimmy Wong to arrive. A torrential thunderstorm just hit the city and the streets are under water. I managed to catch the Bangkok Skytrain before the rains came, but by the time I got to the […]
