Vice Magazine: Tattoo Age, Freddy Corbin Episode II (VIDEO)

 

Courtesy of VICE.com: In this episode of Tattoo Age, we talk to Freddy about his rise as a tattoo artist -from the day he received an income tax return check in the mail for $75 that he used towards his first tattoo, to the unforgettable 9 a.m. phonecall from Ed Hardy with a job offer. We chat about everything from Freddy’s Rock of Ages back piece to the post-punk industrial period of the 80s, and hear anecdotes of the tattoo greats (such as Ed Hardy, Henry Foldfield, Dan Higgs, and Sonny Tufts) that Freddy learned all his tricks from.
