Finally I have taken the plunge again and opened another studio, here is the press release, writen by my awesome friend Tracy Loader.
Ink master opens Mother City's first Cape Town Tattoo Social Club
Saturday, 14 September, legendary artist and custom electric tattooer Milo "Mr Lucky" Marcer is set to launch the first Cape Town Tattoo Social Club.
MTV Base ink master, old school tattoo specialist, director and artist Milo Marcer, better known as Mr Lucky, is making his mark on Cape Town permanently. The purveyor of fine, custom, electric tattoos is expanding the tattoo business with the launch of South Africa's first specialist skin, art and entertainment space - Cape Town Tattoo Social Club, offering a tattoo studio, custom men's lifestyle store and exclusive rooftop events area with spectacular 360 degree views of the Mother City.
The Woodstock-based studio, which opens it's doors on Saturday 14 September 2013, has been over two decades in the making.
"Cape Town Tattoo Social Club is determined to develop a friendly, enjoyable experience for all our clients, giving the highest quality in tattooing in an environment that feels like home," says Marcer.
Mr Lucky's 3rd floor Victorian library-inspired residence with breath-taking views of the city is both spacious, airy and bright and maintains the same warm, friendly, personal vibe patrons have come to expect.
Each of the specially created, sterile tattoo booths is separated by a Milo Marcer-designed screen to provide privacy but not isolating clients from enjoying a true tattooing experience. These exclusive workspaces will also guest hand-picked tattoo artists from around the country and the world to share their talent, knowledge and experiences with customers.
He says: "Clients are attended to by the artists instead of by a third party to take briefs. It's not just a business, we want to forge lifelong relationships with people."
An adjoining Victorian infused lounge extends from the studio offering a relaxing place to put up weary feet or lounge around on large leather chairs and couches while enjoying a cup of premium Italian coffee or soft drink after a tattoo session.
The studio ends in a men's lifestyle store - Greasers: a retro kustom culture inspired brand aimed specifically at guys. First to launch, is a men's skincare range offering exclusively hand-made shaving soap, hair pomade, moustache wax, after shave balm and body washes. Greasers is also stocked with straight razors, clothing and work wear with the promise of more to come. In production and almost complete, Cape Town Tattoo Social Club has commissioned two cafe racers, which will be on display and for sale.
Completing Cape Town Tattoo Social Club is an expansive, open rooftop balcony with awesome views of Cape Town. The space will play host to bi-monthly evenings featuring live music, burlesque performances, dj line-ups and a string of entertainment announcements to still be released.
Current clientele have been given automatic membership to Cape Town Tattoo Social Club allowing them to drop in to the shop at any time, hang out with Milo, have a coffee or stock up on men's lifestyle products. The shop will also keep its doors open until 8pm Wednesday to Sunday to enable customers to make appointments after work at a time that is convenient.
