Chad Koeplinger has been travelling around tattooing quite a lot over the last few years, and has been able to put out amazing work no matter where in the world he is. From no on, though, it looks like you’ll have to plan a trip to Austin if you want to be tattooed by Chad, as he will be working exclusively from Rock of Ages from September 1st!
Chad posted this on his Facebook page:
So stoked, packing up the house, and moving to Austin, Texas, to join the awesome crew and work full time at ROCK OF AGES as of September 1st!! Shave a lot of traveling planned between now and then, but once I make the move, it will be only the occasional and rare guest spot or convention, I will not be traveling hardly at all for a long time, especially overseas. Don’t wait for me to come to you, because I probably won’t. Plan a trip to Austin!
So, from now on, you’ll have to save up your pennies for a tattoo by Chad. Spending money sucks sometimes, but the bright side is that you’ll know exactly where Chad is, so you don’t have to try to guess where he’ll be turning up next anymore. If you already have something planned with Chad, at something like a convention for example, he will still be tattooing you, unless he tells you otherwise. This won’t effect anything he already has in place. All it means is that from September, you can’t sit around hoping that Chad will be coming to a city nearby anymore- you’ll need to get a move on and visit Austin!
