Tatu-derm and the Artists Who Use it!

Tatuderm

In case you missed our last post, which you can go back and read by clicking here, Tatu-derm is a transparent waterproof bacterial barrier that protects new tattoos better than any aftercare method ever has . . . with a lot less hassle. It keeps tattoos safe from abrasions and infections when they’re most vulnerable, protecting your health and artistic investment without putting it at risk. But you don’t have to take our word for it. Thousands of tattoo studios all over the world have begun utilizing Tatu-derm and recommending it as the premier aftercare solution to their customers. Al Garcia @tattooalgarcia Stay True Tattoos It’s not as new as you may think either. When asked about Tatu-derm, Al Garcia from Stay True Tattoos said, “I’ve been using Tatu-derm for close to 4 years now. The first year I’d only use it on larger scale tattoos but, after seeing how great the results were, I started using it on all my clients!” Al Garcia, like most tattoo artists, had a pretty hard time with tattoo aftercare before Tatu-derm came along. “Prior to using Tatu-derm I had a pretty elaborate tattoo aftercare I’d give my clients. The aftercare instructions were long and thorough but there were just too many variables of things that could go wrong once the client left the studio.” What Al’s talking about is an all too familiar scenario to us all. The most common practice utilized by most tattoo artists has been to apply gauze directly to ...Read More »

THIS HAS BEEN AN ANGRY BROADCAST!

WTF PEOPLE?! WHY DO THESE SHITTY TATTOOS KEEP CROPPING UP?! WE’RE BEGINNING TO LOSE ALL HOPE IN HUMANITY! Seriously though, these terrible tattoos have to stop. Tarnishing the image of Jack Skellington or getting tattoos that say “This pussy is juicey” right above your crotch give tattoos everywhere a bad name. These are the images people who are against tattoos point to and they’re all over the place. It’s 1000 times easier to find pictures of bad tattoos than to find good ones. Let’s start a revolution to stop garbage tattoos like these from happening. Spread the word. Let people know that even tattoo enthusiasts disapprove of these horrible tattoos and maybe, just maybe, we can start to bring about the end of bad tattoos together.Read More »

Let’s NOT Tattoo Ourselves

6

If you’re a long time visitor of our site then you’ve seen hundreds, if not thousands, of phenomenal tattoos. Fun fact: None of those tattoos were created by the people who own them! We understand the desire for DIY (do-it-yourself) nowadays, as people try to find ways to save money any way they can. But there’s a reason why even the most talent tattoo artists in the world get other people to create their tattoos. Tattooing yourself is very difficult and risky. One mistake could have a lot of poor health implications and can also wind up ruining your entire tattoo. Don’t be a loser, get a tattooer.Read More »

Artist Spotlight – Christian Marek

CaacYC2UAAI_JZZ

I sat down with tattoo artist Christian Marek, based in Orange County, California this weekend for our interview and ended up getting a lot more than I bargained for. He is an OG and very well respected in the industry. Not only is Christian incredibly talented, he’s also one of the coolest, most genuine artists I have yet to have interviewed. Get ready for one amazing story, buckle up folks. At the age of 7 Christian’s mom married the President of the infamous biker club, the Hell’s Angels. One day he stumbled upon his stepfather’s Easy Rider/Outlaw Biker magazines and began looking through one of them. He came across an article on tattooing that peaked his interest. This article had pictures and descriptions of actual tattoo equipment, and Christian started building his first homemade tattoo machine. At the age of 9 he started actually tattooing kids in his neighborhood around the same age. The only artistic references he had were images from the magazines, which back in the 80’s were mainly biker and jailhouse tats.  These references made their way to the bodies of the neighborhood kids, which were not only permanent but some were images of skulls and naked women, not exactly the kind of art a mom wants inked on her child. Needless to say, Christian was somewhat of a hell raiser from an early age and the next few years had landed him in some trouble with the law. This shaped his life in more ways than ...Read More »

VW Love

cory_salls

STOP! Take a moment and look around. What do you see? Chances are you see a variety of products and items that have been purchased to make your life easier or that you value in some way. Take toilet paper for example. We all value it and it makes our lives easier, and generally speaking when we run out of it we go to the store and buy more. Studies have shown that consumers as a whole will continue to stay loyal to the brands they identify with and those who add value to their lives. Brand tattoos are definitely a bold and permanent statement that comunicate in a split second who you affiliate with, where your values may lay, even what social group you belong to. When it comes to showing their unwavering support for a brand, few loyalists represent harder then VW ( Volkswagen ) owners. There are some awesome VW tattoos that really showcase the brand.Read More »
