Paul Slifer has a book coming out this month with Schiffer Publishing. "A is for Anchor"

Hi Joey , our son tattoo artist,Paul Slifer has a book coming out this month with Schiffer Publishing. “A is for Anchor” is  child’s illustrated alphabet inspired by classic images from traditional tattoo design.The book combines Pauls love for classic folk tattoo art with his interest in kids books since becoming a Dad of our two terrific grandkids Esme and Sadie. The book is available on line from Amazon as well as from Schiffer books and will be in book stores soon. You may remember Pauls commemorative Ardelle launching painting in the same style a while ago. I hope all your tattoo enthusiasts here on GMG will like the book.

Best, Kathy Slifer

Crazy for Lobsters!

Sean’s (nickname ‘Spoonin’ Love’) Lobster Tatoo 

The Degelyse’s Tuffy and Sean delivering the daily catch to Captain Joe’s.

Although I am not an expert on the lobster’s anatomy this looks accurate, and beautifully rendered.

The Man at the Wheel…on the arm

We thought GMG would appreciate this photo as much as we did here at the Blue Shutters…
There are many ways fans of Gloucester can show their love for our favorite seaside town — you’ll find "The Man at the Wheel" emblazoned on tee-shirts, baseball caps, refridgerator magnets, ashtrays and coffee mugs up and down Main Street. But we were particularly impressed with one Blue Shutters guest — Bob from Maryland — who showed us this most awesome tattoo. Bob, whose has roots here, says he always has Gloucester with him wherever he goes.
