Today was the day I was most excited for on this trip to Germany. @cheyenne_tattooequipment welcomed a group of tattooers for a “factory day”. We were given a tour of their cartridge manufacturing facilities and I was allowed to film some clips of this process. I’ve always wonders what kind of crazy robots they have doing this work and now I know. The needle groupings are assembled in a factory in India with 300 employees. Then, this assembly begins with sorting and quality scanning followed by cartridge assembly, microscope quality control, and finally packaging. Sterilization happens off-site. It was really cool for us to see behind the scenes of these tools we use on a daily basis. I learned to make my own needles 20 years ago but this was a whole new level. #cheyenneroadtrip

I’m still seeking a client for the @londontattooconvention in September. I’d love to have the opportunity to do a large ornamental/ 3D piece on a back or chest... maybe the entire outside of an arm. Who wants to go to London and get tattooed at one of the most anticipated and celebrated shows in the galaxy? DM please... #londontattooconvention

I can’t stop laughing at the German word for “exit”. #cheyenneroadtrip

People who know me will understand this post. #cheyenneroadtrip

145mi/h on the autobahn😯 with @danpemble and @chrisokapi #cheyenneroadtrip trying to get to Hamburg on time for the party.

The Disneyland castle was heavily inspired by this place... Schloss Neuschwanstein in Bavaria. #cheyenneroadtrip

There’s a very jet lagged and tired Russ somewhere in this photo. Thank you to @julian.siebert for hosting this party along with @cheyenne_tattooequipment. @danpemble and I were so thrilled to meet so many wonderful tattooers. #cheyenneroadtrip

I’ve made it to Germany with my good friend @danpemble. Dan and I are spending a few days on a road trip across the country with @chrisokapi from @cheyenne_tattooequipment. Stay tuned to my story over the next few days if you’d like to see some of my photos. #cheyenneroadtrip
