INDONESIA + SHANNON LARRATT

It’s been a while since you heard from us! We have been extremely busy with moving, working and preparing for our travel. It all took a bit more time then we expected, which means that our trip to Indonesia is a bit delayed but we are happy to announce that next week we finally will head off to Indonesia for a well deserved vacation! It’s been a year ago that we visited Indonesia for the last time and we’re looking forward to see all our friends again and get inspired by the beautiful temples of Bali, stunning nature of Yogjakarta and the crazy city life of Jakarta! We will be back in The Netherlands again around middle of June this year. Our next post will be from out of Indonesia!

Shannon Larratt 1973-2013

This morning we got the incredible sad news that Shannon Larratt, the biggest icon of the body modification world has passed away.

Shannon Larrett, was a programmer, writer, and artist that you probably know best because of BME, the body modification website he ran from 1994 until mid-2008, where he later came back to about a year or two ago. He also maintained a body modification blog called MODBLOG. Beyond that Shannon Larratt was somebody that brought people and a community together. His contributions to the world of body modification can be felt everywhere, especially in the people that looked up to him, and people he was closest to. He made a real difference and helped others be themselves, and stood up for human rights. If you would like to learn more about Shannon check out his pages Shannon’s Blog: http://www.zentastic.com/blog/about-shannon/ Shannon’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/larratt?fref=ts Also check out Bme’s page in dedication to him: http://news.bme.com/2013/03/15/rip-shannon-larratt-1973-2013/

Thank you for all your inspiration and work! You will be truly missed.

2012.

After year full of ups and downs we’re almost at the end of 2012. I can say, it was quite a hectic but mostly really fun year! In the beginning of this year, Ade got a request to design a pair of shoes for one of our favorite shoe/clothing brands, called Vans. It was a really nice project to work on. The fun thing about this project was that the client gave the total freedom to create a design which was a combination between something modern like a sneaker with a design based on an ancient ornament found in traditional Batik fabrics. The shoes turned out great and we got allot of good responses. Thank you for that!

Besides the project for Vans, Ade also got a request from one of the oldest Indonesian restaurants in Paris, France. They saw his work on the blog and asked him to design a working outfit for their co-workers in the restaurant. A totally new experience! In August we actually had the opportunity to visit the restaurant to see his printed design in real life. One of the other things we did was joining a couple of tattoo conventions in The Netherlands just like last year. But this year we choose to join, Breda, Alkmaar, Rotterdam and Eindhoven. Great to see so many familiar faces as well meeting new people. I must say that tattoo conventions are always a great opportunity to show your work to people and explain them a little bit more about the meanings behind the designs.

2012 was also the year that Lielo decided to start a collaboration with her friend and fellow photographer, Joel. After doing a couple of photo-shoots together they decided to finally make it official and named their project ‘2XWORKS‘. You will definitely see more work of them being posted on the blog in the new year!

2012 was our first year fulltime in The Netherlands, which means that’s it’s almost time to visit Indonesia again! But first we will take a small break from work from Sunday 23 December until Thursday 3 January. You can still send us an email on thisis369@gmail.com to make an appointment with Ade Itameda to get tattooed, to discuss a design or with any other questions. We will respond to all your emails when we return.

Overal 2012 was great. So let’s go to the new year! We wish you all a creative 2013!

Sampai jumpa,
