Untitloled

Tattoo by Chris David at Government Street Tattoo, Victoria BC

The original scribble was done by my old friend Aden. It’s been kicking around in one of my many scrap boxes over the years. I remember where he made that drawing (Black Stilt coffee on Hillside, RIP) but I’ve recently had a hard time figuring out how old this 2D relic might be. Normally I can put a timestamp on any ridiculous knick-knack in my possession.

I sent Aden a photo of his scribble, and it instantly clicked in - the scrap paper held my tips from DISHWASHING, at the restaurant that I currently serve at. That would set a vague date of “summer, 2007?” Perhaps I got the tattoo exactly 7 years after its initial draft? I guess it’s all slightly fitting; I’ve given my notice (for the second time - please feel free to hold me accountable), and my 7 years of restaurant life are finally coming to an end.

If you’ve ever shared a meal with me, this one’s for you.

If I’ve ever shared a memory with you, I’m sure it will permanently make its way on to my body. In time.

'Just had my day brightened up. Big Caribbean army bloke in front of me on the DLR knitting. Old lady turns to him and says “I didn't know men could knit”. He turns to her and in his best Caribbean accent says “No ma'am, the only thing men can't do is have babies. And there's nothing women can't do.” '

My kind of man!

Great words!

French artist Gauvain Manhattan found six old paintings at flea markets and gave them awesome pixelated makeovers. Each painting is now an ode to old school arcade games such as Castlevania, Pokémon, Street Fighter and Duck Hunt. Manhattan plans to continue this geektastic series as soon as he finds more paintings that fit the bill.

Visit Gauvain Manhattan’s website to check out more of his artwork.
