For some time past Mr. Dirk "Pixeleye" Behlau, my companion since the early days, keeps on and on at me I should write about his latest "Pixeleye Calendar". But as I assume that everybody already knows about his stuff I procrastinate it from day to day. Hm. Shame on me, but maybe I've recently seen too many entirely inked ladies posing half-naked in front of all kind of vehicles. But — if you haven't ordered Dirk's colorful wall decoration yet, do it now. (Well, Mr. Schnitzeleye, here's your post!)
NOW TO THE IMPORTANT THINGS.
"Flake & Flames is a fantastic adventure through the Kustom Kulture movement around the globe seeking out the hottest Kustom Kulture spots in the United States (US) and Europe.
If you are new to Kustom Kulture, you will experience the overwhelming creativity that exists behind terms like Low Brow Art, Hot Rods, Customs, and Pinstriping. Those who are familiar with Kustom Kulture will drool in awe and get a privileged look into the private domain of the Kustom Kulture legends of our time.
Some of the world’s best car and motorcycle builders, tattoo artists, pinstripers, custom painters, and pin-up models share their tricks and experience. Artists dedicated to art forms that have traditionally been frowned upon by established society throughout history show you why nothing else can compare."
To keep it short: Those greasy highwaymen just want your money. But they offer — once again — some great packages in return: "High Five + Credits" ($ 10), "VIP Screening Hook Up" ($ 175) or even a "Gold Sponsorship" ($ 10.000), just to name a few. I just ordered "Gimme Gimme The DVD" ($ 30) … but it starts madden me I didn't order the "Let's have a wrap up party" ($ 50) ...
Dirk's and Jesper's "Flake & Flames" is a killer. In my opinion.
"No one else will ever give birth through a piece of Damian Hirts Art."
Directed by Ryan Hope, Skin is a dark, stylish examination of tattoo culture as high art, and a film that tests the boundaries of art and the human body.

Note to self: Call Dirk and ask him whom he hired to shoot and cut this slick styled video. As this video has far too little scratches, stains, frames and bordes, it can't be made by Mr. Pixeleye himself.
Nah. Just kiddin'. It take my hat off to Dirk and Jesper!
