Geek for hire!

Amplifying artists, craftspeople, and business owners worldwide so they can leave the longest lasting postive impact possible has been my passion since the mid 90's. 

Consulting & site visits  - for studios, events, and companies with a positive mission. I can visit your studio to work with you and your team to stress test the business, and leave behind some good, and probably some vital, ideas! 

Conventions & Events - Bring me! I love contributing to events with seminars, interviews, and other activities. 

Recruiting & Placement - Helping amazing high quality artists land guest spots and residencies at world class studios is one of my favotire things to do.

Reinventing Live

Monday, October 14
Special one-day new format educational intensive. Several artists, includeing Stefano Alcantara, Kaija Heitland and Markus Lenhard, will be doing tattoos while Guy Aitchison sits with them and picks their brains, aiming to get to the bottom of how they think and work, while also including the best audience questions and showing the tattooing action up close. Between these interviews will be portfolio critiques of participating audience members, and at the end of the day will be a panel discussion addressing some of the tattoo art form’s biggest questions. At night Guy will be working on a freehand tattoo into the late hours and will answer any interesting questions that roll in.

The event will run from 12 noon Central time until around late that night, with a couple meal breaks. Existing Reinventing The Tattoo subscribers will get a free limited edition hoodie- if you aren’t a subscriber and you want this hoodie you’ll need to subscribe first and then purchase your Reinventing Live ticket.

Tickets are available for viewing the event online or for attending live at Euro Tattoo in Rockford Illinois, about 2 hours from Chicago or an hour from Ohare Airport. 


International Tattoo Convention Bucharest

Nov 1-3 2019
After a few years, way too long, it is very exciting to return to Europe to catch up with my european friends! I will be bringing video gear and filming the city, convention, and artist interviews. From the website:

"In books you often find colorful drawings and stories that usually take place in palaces. This year our story takes place in an elegant and majestic location, Bragadiru Palace in Bucharest. 

As some of you may already know, talented tattoo artists, both local and international, are ready to guide you through the fascinating world of colors and skin drawings.People have expressed feelings and emotions in many ways along the timeline of history, but drawing and painting have a special place in our hearts this time.The Bucharest International Tattoo Convention is an event full of talent, colors, smiles and joy, a great mean to find ways to express yourself in an original and personal way.

So what do we have in store for you? The usual menu with a pinch of surprises: tattoo contests, live performances, parties, shops and various activities, all seasoned by the lovely sound of the tattooing machines. You, the artists, the music and the set up will put together another wonderful story on the pages of the Bucharest International Tattoo Convention book."
