Jordan Teear: Phoenix

By Craig Burton

craigburtonphotography.com

This is my first attempt at shooting video with a SLR camera, I was basically just hanging out at Frith Street and started shooting some random shots of Jordan drawing, then thought it would be a perfect chance to play with the video settings on my new camera. I ended up staying for the duration of the whole tattoo he was drawing. After a little while of getting used to the settings and the focusing i found it quite enjoyable, its something ive wanted to try for a while and now ive got a taste for it, expect more of this Vlogs. Thanks to Jordan and the Guys at FST.

The whole video was shot on a Canon 5D mark II with a Canon 24-70 2.8 lens, edited with Imovie.

“Under Her Skin” Exhibition/Things & Ink Art Issue

Continuing to make serious tattoo collectors smile, Things & Ink magazine – which I have described as a love letter to tattooed women – marks its one-year anniversary with The Art Issue, and also a group exhibition, opening in London tonight, entitled “Under Her Skin.”

“Under Her Skin,” which runs until September 30, 2013, at Atomica Gallery, Hackney Downs Studios, features fine art celebrating modern female tattoo culture by some of the best female tattooers. “Under Her Skin” will be also exhibited during the London International Tattoo Convention, September 27-29.

At tonight’s event, you’ll get you hands on the latest Things & Ink issue, which, once again, has a gorgeous cover, proving that you can show beautiful tattooed women in a way that isn’t cheap. The cover art is inspired by Millais’ iconic artwork, Ophelia, with tattoo artist Tracy D. Check the video below for a behind-the-scenes look at the shoot. Within the magazine are more fantastic recreations of iconic fine art work with their own “tattoo twist,” along with art historical commentary from Doctor Matt Lodder.

As editor Alice Snape notes in her Letter from the Editor:  “The issue covers tricky topics, such as tattoo etiquette (when does inspiration turn into copying?), and tattoos as art. We also spoke to artists who have had their own work used as tattoo inspiration. One of my personal highlights  is an interview with iconic artist Jack Vettriano, as I have been a huge fan of his work since my teenage years.”

If you can’t make it to the “Under Her Skin” opening tonight, you can buy Things & Inkonline here, and at these stockists.

Tattoo Nation

For years people saw tattoos as a sign of rebellion. A middle finger salute to the rest of the world. Outlaw bikers got tattoos. Sailors on leave in Singapore got tattoos. Lifers in the joint got tattoos. But now in the United States one out of every three adults under forty has a tattoo! So what happened? How did tattoo go from something that was put on you to an expression that comes from within you? Tattoo Nation tells the story of a few people who helped transform the world of tattoo, and the way we think about tattoos, forever. This is the true story of the ink revolution.

Variety: It Hurts So Good at ‘Tattoo Nation’ Premiere Opens Today 4/4/13

TattooNation_FacebookCard_6By Michelle Salemi (Original story appears at: http://variety.com/)
Skin artwork was not a sign of rebellion but camaraderie at the L.A. preem of D&E’s doc “Tattoo Nation” on March 28.

“There’s just such great soul in these tattoo artist, and then if you have the talent, pass it on!” tattoo artist Don Ed Hardy said before the Arclight screening.

Actor Danny Trejo, whose tattoos include a family portrait of his children on his back, gets asked a lot about his ink: “People ask me if my tattoos have hindered my career. I say, ‘For the first five years of it.’ I played inmate number one. The only thing I heard the director say was ‘Danny, take off your shirt.’ “ (more…)

tattoo-nation-la-sneak-peek-1By Kent Smith
When approached by Eric Schwartz and John Corry (the director and producer) of Tattoo Nation over a year ago, we knew they were on to something good. While they were not apart of the industry, we knew they were doing this movie the “right way.” Eric had taken his time and developed a story that encompassed the true black and grey history of tattooing…
