GeneralHey folks, My name is Gabor Csobi (Csöbi Gábor). I have been tattooing all over the World, since 1992. I have Worldwide experience from Hungary, Austria, Italy, France to the USA, from the East Coast to the West. I have spent my life to find, fix, drive and ride hot and greasy, good old cars and bikes pre 1965. I try to avoid the post 1965 rides. I have a warehouse in Huntington Beach where I can play with my "toys". In the same time I do some business too. I buy, store and ship hot rods and projects to Europe. (anything what the rodders of the old continent need). I like (who does not?) partying and groovin...swing and lindy hop dancing. I am interested in art, architecture, history (the real one!...). I like to get inked and keep other people inked, traveling around the World as a road rat to find the right place and the right people and try to stay away from wrong places with wrong people. I have visited most of the countries in Europe, over 40 states in the US, and Brazil so far...
MusicJazz, blues, swing, boogie-woogie, lounge, bossa-nova, classic elevator, hillbilly, folk, bluegrass, oldschool country, honky tonk, rockabilly, surf, mid 1960s garage rock, psychedelic, hard rock, metal, post-new wave and alternativ, classic punkrock, oi... Basically, whatever is old and kool and the radio does not play! NO freakin contemporary whiny "gayrock"! No radio! No top hits neither age or style. NO hipp-hopp or (c)rap! No techno or house!
Movies1930s, 1940s black and white classics, detective movies. Big Sleep, 1950s 1960s technicolor movies. Shot in the Dark, Vertigo... Brazil, Blade Runner, Big Lebowski, Snatch, Easy Rider and other ROAD MOVIES...

NO horror at all!
TelevisionTV?? Radio?? BRAINWASH!! What for? NO THANKS!!! TV? What is that? I am living in the 1930s-1940s anyway....
