Mike Moses: Facing the onslaught of the digital age

Source: www.tattoosnob.com Guest post by Mike Moses (On Instagram: @thedrowntown) Those of us with at least a decade in the tattoo industry remember a world quite different from today. As for the old-timers… hell, they probably don’t recognize their own shops anymore. The nervous laughter and palpable fear of those yet to be tattooed is gone. Instead, quiet cadres glued to the 5600K light of a handheld revolution occupy our waiting rooms. Prospective clients gain reassurance that the process ahead is “no big deal” from an ever-growing web of search results. What used to be a rite of passage for more questionable members of society (and more than a few good servicemen) is now served up hot to hoodie’d teenagers, housewives and your cousin Frank. You can’t even check out at the grocery store without a family of five cooing in unison, forcibly comparing their future projects and former mistakes to yours. I didn’t sign up for this – I just wanted some ice cream. At some point, you have to wonder: “What the hell happened?” Coming up in a small town, tattooers in magazines took on a heroic glow. They seemed so far away, their greatness vast and unattainable. As an apprentice, you poured over piles of moldy outdated magazines; tattooer preschool was all about taking notes of the good (and bad) aspects of others’ work. Next you began observing the guys you worked with and the dudes down the street; studying their style, approach, and remembering their names wasyour job. In ... Read More »

Aitchison/Gogue Collaboration Piece

Back in February of this year as a part of our ongoing professional development webinar series, TattooNOW and Off the Map Tattoo produced and broadcast an unprecedented live streaming internet event. A collaboration tattoo from tattoo masters Guy Aitchison and Jeff Gogue, watched as it happened by over 6000 viewers. Matt McKelvey was the lucky recipient of this amazing tattoo. Here is his story of the experience…   When I saw that TattooNOW was offering the opportunity to be tattooed by Jeff Gogue and Guy Aitchison, I spent the next few days writing my submission. I treated my entry like a resume, which was built upon the image of the Heike Crab. I first saw the unique creature and heard its mythology on Carl Sagan’s Cosmos. My goal was to have elements where both artists could bring their strengths, but it would be unique enough to be exciting. A few months went by, and I was honored to find out I had been selected. It just so happened that I ended up in the same exact hotel room that I stayed in when I started my bodysuit. There was some pretty bad weather in Portland that weekend and after a phone conversation with Jeff, I wasn’t sure if Guy’s plane would be landing. We decided if things fell through, the least we could do would be to work on my existing tattoo. Read More »

Alessandra and her husband, Koji Ichimaru, run their private studio in Bologna, what a beautiful place to live, definitely on my go-to list! Alessandra and I got to cook together one day.

Please enjoy and try out her recipe, it will become a staple in your culinary repertoire!
