Is your Bed Your New Tattoo’s Worst Enemy?

By Durb   Having tattooed for the last 25 years, I’ve seen my fair share of tattoos that have healed badly due to the client simply sleeping in their bed. Usually these tattoos have incurred most of the damage, infection and hard healing from when the client sleeps with their fresh, new tattoo with unseen dangerous elements lurking in their bed. Sleeping is definitely one of the greatest moments during a new tattoo collector’s day to do the most damage to their new artwork. When people sleep, they are for the most part completely unaware of pain or minor discomforts, allowing them to be completely unaware of their new tattoo sticking to sheets, seeping onto the sheets and exposing their skin to possible other irritations to the new tattoo. Some of the most common issues while sleeping with a new tattoo is simply sticking to bedsheets, but it’s what’s on those bedsheets that matters during the healing process. Sleep has a profound effect on our mental, emotional and physical well being! Sleep is the time the body can undergo repair and detoxification, although it can also be a determining factor in healing up well or not so well. Poor sleep patterns are linked to poor health and slow healing. Those who sleep less than six hours a night have a shorter life expectancy than those who sleep longer and naturally tend to heal slower. Getting enough sleep can also help resist infection, as some studies of healthy young adults have ... Read More »

Past and Present

By Manny Hernandez Hey Ladies and Gents,  This is my first blog entry for TAM Blog, and I feel like I should somewhat introduce myself so you guys can feel familiar with me as a blogger and artist. My name is Manuel Hernandez and I work at Urban Art Tattoo in Tempe, Arizona. I’ve been tattooing for four years in the Phoenix area and I figured it would be kind of cool to do something in the perspective of “past vs. present” mainly to look at what is going on in the industry today such as repetitive tattoo designs, Pintrest tattoos, tattoo flash, egos and attitudes, machines, the customer perspective and the appreciation of tattooing itself and what we as artists do for a living. I’m not doing this to ruffle feathers, or piss anyone off, or to use this as some way to call people out, but more of away to just open up discussions here on the Internet and even in your own shop. For this first blog entry, I want to just open a discussion about how things may or may not have changed in tattooing as far as the old vs. new. For example, the attitudes in tattoo shops. Sometimes, I feel as if this may be the result of so many people wanting to tattoo recently, or maybe it’s just the fact that the new generation of tattooers has been brought up in a different light. I know a lot of what was instilled in ... Read More »

Isaac Fainkujen Tattoo Artist Magazine Article Preview Issue #26

Interview by Brian Seghers Brian Seghers: If you could go back in time to any era, or to work with somebody, or somewhere, where would you like to go? Have you ever thought about that? Isaac Fainkujen: Yeah, I think for me the era that’s most interesting is kind of the tattoo renaissance that took place in and around the Bay area in the 70s and the 80s with Ed Hardy, Bob Roberts, Greg Irons, Eddy Deutsche and people like those guys that started to push the boundaries of what was okay and what wasn’t okay to do in a tattoo… Read More »
