mail1

By Alison Nastasi (Article originally appears at Flavorwire.com) Who runs around wearing a loincloth, covered in tattoos, and delivers mail on a stick while managing not to look like an absolute fool?

Just Eat It: Rigatoni and Meatball Pie

meatball pie

By Stiff My inspiration for cooking can come from a variety of things. Sometimes I get inspired by having a dish from a restaurant that I’ve never had before and try to replicate it at home. Sometimes inspiration comes from recipes I may see on television. I mostly get inspired by the certain items I see in the grocery store or farmer’s market. Sometimes I fail at the outcome of what I’m making and sometimes I succeed. I just like to try new things and expand my horizons when it comes to testing new ingredients or cooking methods. James, my husband is a great guinea pig. He will generally eat whatever I make and is honest about how the food tastes. Unlike James, I myself am much more critical about how my food turns out. Read More »

Guen Douglas: Flash or Not to Flash?

guen-douglas-1

By Guen Douglas The other day I posted a question on facebook asking about flash art. I’ve wanted to start compiling a glossary of tattoo terms for clients, but after Googling “flash art” and reading the Wikis and info on the subject I thought to ask my peers what they thought. I found most of the information contradicting and in my opinion, inaccurate…  Read More »

Debra Yarian: Not My Gift To You

deb-yarian-5

By Debra Yarian We are constantly being asked by people, how either they or their family members can “get in to tattooing?” How they can obtain a license, open a shop, get a job and so-on and so-on and so-on. In recent years I’ve had more and more people indignantly explain, that even though they or their relatives really want to become tattooists, nobody will teach them! This is often at our initial introduction…  Read More »

Adam Lauricella: Thom deVita Pop-Up Gallery Review

DeVita1

By Adam Lauricella The “pop-up gallery” is a phenomenon that is refreshing yet pragmatic. It’s something doable for artists who may not have the resources to establish a long-standing art gallery yet, still show their work or the work of others. Often times these galleries take shape in empty spaces or open in unsuspecting locations that aren’t in use. The term pop-up gallery is loosely used to describe the event that went down the weekend of January 11-13, 2012 at Kings Avenue Tattoo… Read More »
