How Rinsecup Cleanup Came About

How Rinsecup Cleanup Came About

By Dan Mcnab I’m a tattoo artist in the city of Huntington Beach, Ca. I own and work at The Tattoo Gallery with four of my very close friends. After years and years of leaking trash bags, I decided one day to put an end to it once and for all and created RinseCup CleanUp. When I designed this product I made sure it is the best that exists and can not get any better. Also, it’s non-toxic because our trash gets put into landfills and that would only hurt the environment. I believe as a whole, us humans do enough of that! Disposing of our rinse cups and ink caps this way is the safest method and eliminates cross-contamination in our trade due to the contaminated liquids we produce. Once in the landfill, RinseCup CleanUp slowly releases the water and improves soil conditions through aeration. It’s less expensive than using paper towels and safer than dumping it down a sink. When that method is used more toxic chemicals are needed to clean the area it was dumped in, which leads to poisoning our environment even more. Now we are in many countries and the response is amazing. So much support from this trade! The only advertising I have done is thru IG. It’s spreading like wildfire and I’m excited to see where it goes from here. It’s only been about 6 months since I released it for sale!

Athletes’ Tattoo Artists File Copyright Suits, Leaving Indelible Mark

P1-BQ442_TATTOO_G_20140616155120

By Jacob Gersham Randy Harris worries that lawyers are leaving a stain on the tattoo world. A court tattooist to basketball royalty, Mr. Harris says he has inked dozens of NBA players, drawing everything from a giant tree on Dallas Mavericks guard Monta Ellis, to a beady-eyed owl on Washington Wizards point guard John Wall, to a basketball-toting angel on Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant. Recently, he has found himself shaking his head at the litigious direction of his image-conscious occupation as the question of who owns a tattoo has become a source of tension. To him, it’s simple: “Once they paid for the tattoos, man, they paid for it,” he said from his shop south of Atlanta. Other tattooists say the issue isn’t that clear, especially in the case of sports videogames, which digitally re-create not just the bodies of athletes, but often their body art as well. Phoenix-based tattoo artist Chris Escobedo took an intellectual property rights training course and in 2012 sued now-bankrupt videogame developer THQ Inc. over a mixed-martial arts game in which one of his tattoos—a large, scowling lion on the right rib cage of Ultimate Fighting Championship star Carlos Condit—makes a cameo appearance. Last year he settled the lawsuit for an undisclosed sum, he said. “They’re doing it without consulting the original artists, and that’s what makes it illegal,” he said. “I’m the little guy in this situation.” Such lawsuits have left a mark. When videogame giant EA Sports, a brand of Electronic Arts Inc., EA +0.11% developed ... Read More »

A message from Kate Hellenbrand: TODAY is the DAY!!! PBS SPECIAL airing TONIGHT at 7:30 p.m. here in AUSTIN, Central Time~ Available on line thru their website tomorrow for the rest of the world to see. This isn’t some crappy “reality” TV SHOW. This is a respectful overview of the real art of tattoo. It’s PBS, people! I’ve continued to turn down “Ink Disaster” and “Tattoo Titans” and all the other crap thrown at me that is made up and disrespectful to my glorious art/craft. Thankfully, I held out. I am proud. And even though haters will pick it apart, I say: SUCK IT! I am almost excited enough to buy a TV (which I don’t have) and subscribe to cable (which I won’t do) so gratefully I’m going to watch at Chris Kirkpatrick’s home with his lovely wife Christine. He’s the client getting the girl with the cobra that you’ll see. LEMME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK And we have some photos up on the website: www.artsincontext.org and also on the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ArtsInContext Read More »

Sunrise News has No Love for Tattooed Ladies

By Kevin Miller www.tattoosnob.com This video by the Sunrise morning show in Australia has a lot of people upset, and for good reason. There’s too many ignorant statements to count throughout this segment, but the woman at approximately 1:00 takes the cake. She starts off comparing tattoos as a fashion statement, and then she informs everyone they’ll regret their decision to get tattooed. Oh, and she also discusses how men don’t find tattoos attractive and pokes fun at one of the tattoos they show as a visual example. I tried to figure out who each one of these women were by using the ‘Meet our Team’section on the Sunrise website. Unfortunately all of their face lifts and botox sessions make them blend together. I already sent my feedback to Sunrise using their Contact Us section on their website, and I would encourage you to do the same. Let’s tell Sunrise and theirs ‘news team’ what a bunch of ignorant assholes they are. http://bcove.me/1a8f4ra1 Read More »

Woman’s journey to beat breast cancer ends with nipple tattoos

By Victoria Hansen vhansen@abcnews4.com MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) — It’s been five years since Sharon Dempsey took the shower that changed her life. She bent down to pick up a razor and immediately felt it, a lump beneath her breasts. “My tumor was right under where they pull it up so it never made it on to the mammogram screen,” said Dempsey. She quickly called her doctor. “I said, ‘Dr. Scott, I felt something I’ve never felt it before. It doesn’t move.’ I went in to see him on Monday and by Friday I was already lined up for surgery,” Dempsey said. The moment is still vivid as she makes what she hopes is her last doctor visit. “I’ve always before I’ve had any of my procedures, I do research about it and there’s not a lot of research out there on how they do the tattooing,” she said. At 55, Sharon is about to get her first tattoo — make that two tattoos. “I wasn’t nervous until my son told me it was going to hurt, and then yes I was nervous,” she said. Dempsey lives in Irmo, but has come to The Center for Natural Breast Reconstruction in Mount Pleasant to have most of her work done. Here, Dr. James Craigie took fat from her belly to build new breasts “Tummy tuck and like the ladies at work say, I’ve got 18 year old boobs,” said Dempsey.   But that’s not all. Dr. Craigie even managed to create ... Read More »
