The Comeback Kid

One of our most popular titles is making a comeback. For the last couple years Martin LaCasse's "Take What You Can...Give Nothing Back", has been out of print. Over the last couple months however we have been deluged with requests to bring it back. With the release of Martin's "365" there has been a ton of interest in his first book, so we have decided to bring it back. The new printing will have a soft cover and a nice new price ($30 US).
The new re-issue has a street date of August 1. If you have  the original hardcover, it's a collectors item now, so shelf it and pick up the new soft cover. If you don't own this book your library of reference is incomplete, this is one of the best selling tattoo books of the 00's. Thanks for demanding we bring it back, it's one of our favorites too.

Joe Capo X Kidrobot X The Bride

It's never easy to  keep a secret, but this one has been a doozy. I have know about this project for years and have been very lucky to see it through each step of it's progress. Presto Artist Joe Capobianco along with toy giant Kidrobot have produced an awesome limited edition toy called "The Bride". The toy really looks like one of Joe's Capo Girls come to life, and is based on a tattoo he did on The Baroness. The toy drops on May 20th at and all stores that carry Kidrobot , but here is the inside track. Joe along with The Baroness, are dropping the toy at this years Hell City Tattoo Fest in Ohio. Hell City is one of the best tattoo shows of the year and Joe will  have some of his super limited Glow in the Dark special edition Brides. I know these are going to fly off the shelf, so plan accordingly because these are a future collectible. We're very excited, congratulations Joe on a fantastic toy, we hope they do more!

Martin & Mike.....Tyson!?!

Presto Artist and 365 Author Martin LaCasse recently spent his day job with former Heavy Weight Champion of the World, Iron Mike Tyson. Mike surprised the crew at Olde City Tattoo when he strolled in to get Martin to tattoo a black rose on his forearm. Although that is a cool way to spend the day, even better to us was Presto Art getting name checked in the Philadelphia Daily News. Thanks Mike for getting us some press and for all the one minute fights on HBO. It really is the city of brotherly love!
