An Interview with Alan Oversby/Mr. Sebastian
In March of 1978, Doug and I joined self-proclaimed “freaknut” Sailor Sid and grandmother of the tattoo community Elizabeth Weinzirl for a trip to the ITAA tattoo convention in Amsterdam. On the way we stopped for a week in London to meet the local T&P enthusiasts and in particular, to spend time getting to know Alan Oversby better known to his clients as Mr. Sebastian.
During our visit I recorded this interview with Alan which subsequently appeared in issue #4 of Piercing Fans International Quarterly. You can view a copy of that article here.
You can learn more about this European sojourn in chapter 8 of Running the Gauntlet.
