Friends don’t let friends get bad tattoos!

bad tattoos what can you do?

What can any of us DO about the number of people out there getting BAD TATTOOS? Why do people get bad tattoos? Why do neighbors, coworkers, and even our family members come up and show us their new tattoos [which are obviously sub-par] and say, “I just got a new tattoo! It looks good, right?!” How can otherwise intelligent people, people whom we know have relatively good tastes in music, movies, comedy, theater, ballet, (SH#T– nearly ANYthing else creative in the world), but be utterly and completely blind to the truth about how bad their own tattoos are? As hard as it is to say- it may not really be their fault; even tattooers need up to TEN YEARS to learn how to recognize good work! That’s how hard it is to learn. But, for some reason, every-body thinks they know what’s good and what’s not, when it comes to tattoo work. Speaking AS a tattooer of 25 years, I’m going to go out on a limb and say it’s mostly OUR OWN fault, the pros who’ve been doing it for 10-20 years or more; we LET television and the internet flood the hearts & minds of genuinely interested tattoo fans, and did little to make a stand TOGETHER when we had the chance, by creating and offering quality, entertaining AND educational media resources for the masses. Most tattooer’s have selective memories, so it’s been really really difficult for many them to remember that there was once a time that they didn’t know shit about tattoos either. ... Read More »

Gideon’s Army: Tattoos In Law

Gideon's Army tattoos

By Marisa Kakoulas When my tattoo world and legal world collide, in some very powerful ways, I want to share it with you. I attended NYU Law School’s screening of Gideon’s Army, a film that takes a tough look at the American criminal justice system through the lives of three young public defenders in the the South who struggle with an overwhelming case load, long hours, and very low pay in order to ensure that those who are poor and cannot afford a lawyer in a criminal trial have the right to representation — a right guaranteed by the 6th Amendment of the US Constitution and the 1963 case of Gideon v. Wainwright, in which the Supreme Court ruled that defendants in criminal cases have the right to legal representation in state courts, and if they cannot afford a lawyer, the state would have provide one. Public defenders are such lawyers.Gideon’s Army, brilliantly directed by Dawn Porter, is not a documentary where tattoos play heavily. This film, at its core, is about how some of the greatest civil rights abuses lie in a broken criminal justice system, as noted by Jonathan Rapping, who heads the Southern Public Defender Training Center, now known as Gideon’s Promise.However, one of the most powerful moments in the film comes in the form of tattoos. As seen in the short clip below (which is not all entirely in the film), Travis Williams, a public defender in Hall County, Georgia, calls himself and other public defenders who fight for the constitution ...

Gadget Makes Music by Scanning an Arm Tattoo

ut_musictattoo_f

by HANNA TRUDO Dmitry Morozov’s tattoo isn’t just about looks, it’s about sound. The Moscow-based artist has a hefty 8- by 3-inch barcode stretching down his left forearm, and when he scans it with the right gadget: music. Morozov grew up studying guitar and is a self-taught engineer. “I wanted to combine two passions—electronic music and robotics—and I already had tattoos,” he says. Morozov created the barcode in Photoshop and modded a scanner with two black-line sensors, a stepper motor, and a Nintendo Wii remote. As the motor guides the sensors along his tat, the length of each bar dictates the duration of the sound; if he moves his arm, the Wii’s accelerometer detects the shift and distorts the tone. It’s a little … monotonic, and not everyone is impressed—many Russians associate tattoos with criminal culture. But Morozov is determined to change their minds. “I try to explain the theory and technology of the art and body, and then most people respond positively,” he says. Sounds like progress.

THE INKSPIRATION APP BY P.INK

P.ink-mastectomy-App

A new tool for life after a mastectomy. Breast cancer survivors are often told they have two options following a mastectomy: reconstruction or not. Most of the time, neither option can conceal the scars that often mark the experience. That’s why we at P.ink created the Inkspiration app by P.ink — to help survivors make friends with the mirror again after a mastectomy. Try on your own tattoo. In private. Inkspiration offers survivors a way to try on mastectomy tattoos in the privacy of their own home. Select a body type or upload a photo to get a better idea of what designs might look like. Inkspiration houses a growing library of tattoo inspirations and helps survivors identify and connect to tattoo artists who have mastectomy experience. An empowering step in taking back control.Most survivors have no idea where to begin when they consider a mastectomy tattoo, especially if they’re not a “tattoo person.” We created the app to demystify things — to show them what a tattoo might look like on them. And to point them towards the artists who can help them move on after a mastectomy. Download the Inkspiration app for iPhone now. Release notes: iPhone only for now. Android version is in the works. Future feature: order temporary tatts directly from our app. Are you a survivor or a previvor? We’d love to hear what you think. Leave a review or drop a line: help@p-ink.org. Would you like to donate your illustrations to our image library? Send your hi-res vector files to help@p-ink.org. The ... Read More »
