Deus, The Soda Factory, Melbourne Tattoo Expo, and Christmas

It feels weird to have nights off again now that the sailor jerry bar has finished up for now. We sure do miss them though. Of course it won't be the last that we'll be seeing of them. the guys at sailor jerry are so rad, and we dig everything they do.

We got a spontaneous call from Uppercut last week with a gig at The Soda Factory! We had an absolute blast, as always. That place is cool and we'll definitely be checking it out again really soon! If you haven't been there already, their hot dogs are to die for... Just ask Ella!

Last weekend we went along to the Deus biker build off in Camperdown. They have such cool events over there. So much manliness all in one place at the one time. Pity Tommy's bike is currently being dismantled... 

Some of you hay have noticed we've changed out front sign artwork... This has been all thanks to Joel Cameron. Y'all need to check this guy out. An amazing artist and illustrator. Check out his work. Thanks again Joel.

We've got a fresh batch of stickers and more merch with out new logo, as well as a few other fun things for you guys such as patches and other cool sh*t, all in time for the Melbourne Tattoo Expo.

Come to think of it, that's creeping up on us super soon! 3 weeks to go! What a countdown. This will be the first time Hair By Tommy J has been down to Melbourne for business purposes so we're really excited for this leg of the expo. Our good friends from Rebel Wolf Clothing Co have recently relocated down there as well so it'll be nice to see some familiar faces once we're down there. You guys should check him out, he's been a loyal customer of ours as well  as a good friend since day one. He's done a fair amount of sign work in the shop for us over the years and has recently moved to Melbourne to further his career as an illustrator. Rebel Wolf Clothing Co. Get on it!

The legends down at Uppercut have sent us these rad little essential packages just in time for Christmas! They include a tin of pomade, shave cream and aftershave moisturiser, all in a cute little box. Such a steal! A perfect little present for that special gentlemen in your life, or even treat yourself!  We've only got a few in stock though so get in quick! 

We'd like to take this opportunity to welcome our new barber to the Hair By Tommy J family, AJ has started with us full time from this week onwards and she's already developed a repeat clientele. She's ready to put the boys to the test so boom in with her for your Christmas cut before we close up for the silly season! 

Which reminds me, y'all need to make sure you have made a pre-Christmas appointment before we book out! Our Saturdays throughout December are already filling up super quick so a word of advice is to get in ASAP to avoid disappointment. We'll be taking later evening appointments leading up to our closing date to make sure we can fit you all in. So get to it!
