Norm MSK

Recommended Posts

Just saw the news on Norm MSK - legendary writer who absolutely crushed and an amazing tattoo artist.


I remember being impressed with his work late 90’s in SF - definitely one of the kings of West Coast.

Fuck. Have always been blown away by his work. Had hoped to get my belly done by him. 


Rest Easy.

Norm was a lot of my first. First writer I ever met(they opened a tattoo shop when they first mived to SF on my block, I had to have been 7 or 8 ) first to show me a black book, gave me my first marker. If it wasn't for Norm and the Nomads family I would have been stuck in the normy haze of hating graffiti. I didnt know it at the time, but his kindness and guidance changed my whole perception, began my appreciation and changed the cource of my life as a whole. I  paid more attention to my city, learned the culture and studied the history, began collecting and documenting and making zines.


Norm was a huge influemce to so many in both graffiti and tattooing. A huge loss. Rest in peace norm

Unfortuantely I didn't have a camera when he was in his prime in SF but he did some crazy stuff, some of which is still running. Rip Norm
