Your courageous blogger, however, chickened out. What he got was something just as good, though less permanent.  A hug from this artist from Monarch Tatoos In Honolulu who traveled 4000 miles to show her stuff with ink and other ways.  VOICES OF MAUI TALK STORY, LLC PHOTOS.  Check out my post 100 whines in the list for late December 2014 for more.

ALOHA TATOO ARTISTS AND THE NEWLY TATOOED: did the blogger join this people on the tattoo table?

August 30–The blogger who has photographed many people with tattoos on Maui and some in Honolulu got something at this mega tatoo convention. Scroll down to see what: This is Nicole.  She is getting a blackbird on her leg and why it makes a statement about who she is and why and when she colored her hair.   Find up why in my upcoming column in Lahaina New in September.  Click on follower to be follower of this blog for provocative photos usually of another place famous for tattooes: the beaches of Kaanapali, Maui. A nice chat with Nicole while she was under the needle revealed a lot about the world of tattoos. 

To see what he blogger left with, you will just have to wait until Monday. No more posting. Watching a possible no hitter on TV.  Aloha to all from Voices of Maui Talk Story, LLC based on Maui, now visiting Chicago.

THOUGHT OF THE DAY

NORM - 1 (1)Don’t listen to the conventional wisdom.  Do not count him out.

LOLLO POST THREE

MCCARTNEY, 39 OTHERS WOW 300,000 IN CHICAGO

Your blogger was outside, not inside, but the word is Paul McCartney did a two hour set complete with fireworks. Best moment: the crowd joined him in singing, “Hey Jude..”Chicago, unlike Maui knows how to deal with crowds–trcorner. affic police on every corner. One day maybe McCarney will come to Maui. Crowds packed the part which adjoins Millennium Park.  Visitors swarmed into this nearby attraction to watch kids cavort in water before massive projected photos.  

NOTE ON PHOTOGRAPHY: The blogger often tells people who are the subject of posed picture not to stand there like sticks but to talk to each other, to be animated.  Amazingly, the Chicago Tribune’s Red Eye did a whole spread of individual people just posed before the camera.  So our blog does one up on the mighty tribune, showing people but in candid fashion.  VOICES OF MAUI TALK STORY, LLC PHOTOS
