NEW PATH

It’s been a while since I posted something here. As some of you might already know, quite some things have changed. After 7 great years living and working in The Netherlands, I recently moved back to my home country, Indonesia. So much I have learned in these years, so many nice memories made and many great tattoo projects I worked on. I can’t thank you, all my customers, enough for their interest in my work and their loyalty. All the good conversations and laughs we had and your endless support.

Now it’s time for a new path I’m taking and making a dream come true. I will use this blog to keep you up to date about the things that I will be working on here in Indonesia, and some new project that I’m working on.

At the moment I’m working in Bali, Indonesia, which will be my base for the upcoming months after that. In the beginning of the new year, my plan is to visit The Netherlands again for a short moment.

On my Instagram account you will find all my recent updates about my work and when and where I will be at that moment.

Thank you all again to check out my blog. Let’s do this, keep on moving and don’t die.!

More coming soon!

Because I’m very busy atm. and I’m running out of time doing tattooing, sketching for new designs, replying customers and focussing on finding new inspiration. No matter how much time I would like to put into it, I simply don’t have enough time to keep the blog up to date.

Thanks a lot everybody for your understanding!

JAKARTA TATTOO FLASH DAY

Together with some friends / colleague tattoo artists I organised a Jakarta Tattoo Flash day as a dedication to our hometown, the place where we grew up.

We had prepared some designs ready to tattoo, all designs are inspired / based on in honour of the city Jakarta.
People could drop by as walk-in customers and got tattooed based on a tattoo flash of their choice. First come first serve.

Thank you for everyone who came and support us. We’ve could not done this without you, it was great. Let’s keep Jakarta artistically fun…!
Thank you / terima kasih!

 

WAYANG KULIT TATTOO SHOW

Later that month I went to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to join the Wayang Kulit Tattoo show.

This tattoo convention was organised by some friends (and great tattoo artists) of mine.

Thanks guys and see you again next year? I had a blast!

Designs done during the 1st day of the Wayang Kulit Tattoo show.

During my trip to Indonesia I received a lot of emails with requests for appointments from you guys, so now I have to try to catch up with all of them! I’m still working on my schedule for the upcoming months, so a little more patience people! I will try to get back at you asap. Thanks in advance and see you in the shop!

Ade realizes that some people are still waiting for a reply on their emails, but due to hectic times making all the arrangements and due the amount of emails he recently received, he’s still busy catching up. So thanks in advance for your patience!

When Ade is opening up his new schedule with bookings for in the shop in Eindhoven he will announce this on his Facebook or contact you by email.

First he will take a well deserved, small break in his homeland before he will start working in the new shop starting from February 2017.

So more news about this in the new year!

 


 

In the meanwhile, requests for bookings in Eindhoven can still be send to:  thisis369@gmail.com please include all relevant information.

APPOINTMENTS
Emails in English please! I am originally from Indonesia, so you can write me also in Bahasa Indonesia but i will reply in English to make it easier.

Make sure you gave me enough details concerning your project:

  • telephone number
  • explain your idea (any specific ornaments / symbols that you want to incorporate?,¬†please send along any reference images you have, that you think will clarify your idea.¬†I want to draw¬†something by your guidelines, but I will advise you on what I think will work well or possible other options for your tattoo that will make the design better).
  • possible placement(s)
  • size (hand / palm size or cm)
  • reference images (examples of my work you like in style / details)
  • a clear, recent photo of the body part to be tattooed
  • in case of a cover up / continuing an old piece – a clear, recent photo of the tattoo(s) you already have
  • If you have specific dates in mind please send me those and I will do my best to fulfil requests.¬†

Those that have all that info in their¬†initial email generally get booked first. If you haven’t added this info,¬†do it now and add it as a reply to the email you originally sent. I’m easily¬†confused, so a continuing thread is much easier.

Due to the amount of messages I get a day, I’m not able to respond right now.

It usually takes me 1 (up to 4) weeks to respond to emails due to the volume of emails I receive.

Please do not send multiple emails (I don’t take any requests by Instagram / Facebook)

If it’s regarding when and where I’ll be guesting in the near¬†future, please visit my instagram : adeitameda, all my recent work, dates, and in case of a cancellation, it will be uploaded there.

WAYANG KULIT – TOGOG

Togog

Another design that Ade recently made, with another not so well known character of the shadow puppet theatre is Togog. 

Togog is one of the clown servants for the hero of a story in a Wayang play. Some say¬†he is actually Semar’s brother.¬†As you can see¬†Togog¬†has a big lip, this¬†from having tried to swallow a mountain in a battle¬†with¬†Semar about who was¬†the bravest¬†and this is also the reason why he is always¬†stuttering a bit.

Togog_2

Togog was one of the antagonists, always giving advice to be careful of the limits of humanity.
He speaks out to and is always giving corrections, criticisms and suggestions at the annoyance of his master, he remains loyal even though he is sometimes punished for being stupid.
Togog and Bilung (one of the other servants) are joking most of the time and ridicule each other but they reflect wisdom and truth.
