Max Dolberg: All Things Come To Pass (VIDEO)

120401Adrian_240

  By Max Dolberg My collaborator and good friend Adrian Lee has been growing dreads since we first met in 1995. In the intervening 17 years, Adrian’s locks had grown to past his knees and despite their strange power to attract nubiles like moths to a flame, the head from which the smelly ropes sprouted decided it was time for a new look. Not one to miss a chance to indulge his ego, Adrian figured the best thing to do was make an elaborate short film to document the transformation. To that end, we assembled the troops and headed for the hills above San Francisco, armed with cameras, a 4-year-old stand in, a 7-foot tall mirror, and all manor of sheers. The result was a sunburned head and the movie we are proud to present to you today. Enjoy! Read More »

Horitaka: Molly Skobba Previews Bloodwork: Bodies

BloodWork: Bodies. Book photographed by Max Dolberg.

By Molly Skobba I had a hard time writing this blog. It took me longer than usual, with more restarts and edits before send off. I realized that it’s because BloodWork: Bodies is such a gigantic project with so many facets and possible approaches in writing about this book. It is epic not only in content but also in physical stature with 2 volumes, 900 pages and weighing over 25-pounds filled with massive pages of outsized and extravagant photos that bond the human form and visual art seamlessly…   Read More »

Horitaka: I Love Books!

bloodwork_sleeves_limite-112

By Takahiro “Horitaka” Kitamura It’s no secret that I love books. I collect them, I write them, I publish them… and it’s nice to see that amidst the flurry of Google image searches and technological advances, books are still in use in the tattoo community. I haven’t been tattooing that long, but book collecting was, and is, something all my mentors and role models encouraged. It was about study and reference, doing your homework to make the best tattoo drawing you could! Read More »
