TATTOOS
IN 1991, A FROZEN BODY WAS DISCOVERED WITH 57 TATTOOS. IT WAS 5000 YEARS OLD. TATTOOS HAVE ALSO BEEN FOUND ON MUMMIES AND 3,000-YEAR-OLD FIGURINGS. IN SOME ANCIENT CULTURES, IT WAS MATTER OF RELIGION. IN OTHERS, IT WAS A MARK OF WEALTH AND ARISTOCRACY. IN HAWAII, TATTOOS WERE USED TO SAFEGUARD HEALTH (UNTIL STICK-IN-THE-MUD MISSIONARIES MADE THEM STOP).
But Western society took longer to get into it. If you were a proper gentleman on the streets of London or Paris in the 1600s, you did not have a tattoo (although you were probably sporting a codpiece). Finally, by the 1700s, there was a kind of man who looked at the world differently — who fled the safety and constraints of civilization for another kind of existence. That’s right, we’re talking about sailors. According to what records exist, it was the men on Captain James Cook’s crew who first chose to get tattoos as mementos of their journey to the great tattoo cultures of Japan, China and the Pacific Islands. And that’s pretty much how it stayed for the next 200 years or so.

L.A. Is Still Car Crazy, and We Shouldn't Apologize For That In the wake of an infusion of nearly $2 billion in federal cash for the Purple Line subway extension to Beverly Hills, the Los Angeles Times recently opined that "L.A.'s love affair with cars is over." Nothing could be further from the truth. Sure, a skeletal light-rail system, a burgeoning network of bike lanes, and a millennial generation that's more interested in smartphones than cars has helped Los Angeles diversify its transportation. And considering that we rate as the nation's traffic-congestion leader, that's a very good thing. But that's a far cry from the death of our car-loving ways. This city is a world capital of car culture, and even in the age of global warming, we should never apologize for our four-wheeled lust. Thanks for keeping oldschool it @tedgushue. The Barbershop Club @hotelnormandie offers valet parking or crubside service for that vintage gem . Appointments only full bar and wine menu. #vintagestyle #classiccars #porscheclassic #porsche #porscheclub #classicporsche #valetparking #ktownla #dtla #dtlaartsdistrict #dtla_everyday #thewealthybarber #carshowroom #artdistrictla

Happy Mother's Day from The Barbershop Club! Do something fun with your mom today. Mother's Day is celebrated to honor all mothers and express gratitude for the hardships they bear in bringing up a child. Most countries including US, Australia, Canada and India celebrate Mothers Day on the second Sunday of May. Mothers Day came into being due to the efforts made by Ms Julia Ward Howe and Ms Anna Jarvis. The Resolution for having a dedicated Mother's Day was signed by US President Woodrow Wilson on May 8, 1914. Since then people across the world have been celebrating Mothers Day with joy and devotion. #mothersday #rollercoaster #mothers #moms #barbershops #boyhood #mamasboy #familyfirst #relationships #girlpower #womenfirst #themepark #countyfair #usamade #vintagestyle #oldschool

Generation Y discovers everything old is new again
Today’s young adults, trying to cope with life’s pressures, are finding relief in the slow cooking, arts and crafts, and old-fashioned leisure of their grandparents. Nestled on the outside of @hotelnormandie in Koreatown, The Barbershop Club is a staple of Los Angeles, but now anchors this fabulous hotel. This greatly designed barbershop offers all of the old-world charm and first rate barber services you’d expect these days. With a few chairs dating back to the early 20th Century, this family owned business began its roots in Kansas City, but has been influencing the hair and beards of many for over 30 years in Los Angeles. Getting a haircut and shave at The Barbershop Club is like entering a time warp, as you’ll experience old world chairs, the smell of Bay Rum aftershave and getting your hair cut and your beard trimmed in a relaxing atmosphere. Think of this place as a club (hence the name) where the experienced barbers actually know your name the next time you come in. The interior is also immacuately decorated with a fine line of the old mixed with the new. #ktownla #dtla #dtla_everyday #dtlaartsdistrict #vintagestyle #bestbarbershop #oldschoolbarbershop #vintagebarbershop #speakeasy #barmenu #hospitality #hotelservice #valetparking #concierge #membersonly #vipbarberservices #wetshaving #apothecary #millennials #millenials #gentlemanclub #locationshoot #locationscouting #eventplanner #barberbar #livemusicla

Look for the neon sign beaming atop the roof, illuminated continuously for 90 years. During the 1920's, the nation was going through a period of prohibition due to the Volstead Act of 1919. This act was supposed to make alcohol illegal, but what it really did was cause the nation to go into a sort of rebellion.
Secret clubs and meetings controlled by organized crime members sprang up all over America and Canada. They were called "Speakeasies," and they sold illegal alcohol during prohibition. To get into a speakeasy, you needed to know the secret handshake, password, or knock. The clubs were hidden in the backs of stores or even underground, and were a great source of entertainment. People could meet to drink bootlegged alcohol, gamble, watch dancing girls, and listen to Jazz and other popular music of the times, not much different from clubs today. #gentlemanclub #speakeasy #dtlaartsdistrict #barbershopla #hotelcalifornia #barbershopclub #swingersclub #swingmusic #soulmusic #blues #jazz #koreatownla #dtla #hollywoodsign #probation #vintagela #hotelclub #hospitality #hotelguest #barbershops #oldschoolmusic #rockabilly #cottonclub #renaissance #supperclub #neonlight #neonsign

RSVP at pomadeking@gmail.com Lou Nova (March 16, 1913 – September 29, 1991) aka Cosmic punch was an American boxer and actor.

After turning pro, he remained undefeated in his first 22 matches, and won 40 fights in total.

There was a time when Members Only was the coolest thing. The irony was, the title of Members Only pertained to a jacket and some clothing options rather than any exclusivity of an actual club or organization. (They were cool jackets, though). We're not really interested in all flash and no cash, all shine and no dime, no glide in your stride. Members Only with us carries more weight than Golden State in the playoffs.

Why Drive A Classic Car? More and more people want to drive in classic cars these days… These old beauties just have a unique beauty in them and to think they are becoming less and less, so to find a good classic car today is quite a scarce commodity.
One of the biggest reasons why people want a classic car is because certain classics have a huge emotional and nostalgic effect on some people, whether they are male or female. It might be that when you were a toddler your dad or grandfather drove a specific car (classic) and you put a lot of emotional value on that car so you are maybe looking for one today. Thanks for keeping oldschool @hummul .
