Artist Spotlight – Coen Mitchell

Coen Mitchell @coenmitchell14

  Coen Mitchell @coenmitchell Auckland, New Zealand Coen Mitchell is a professional tattoo artist based in Orewa, Auckland, New Zealand who works alongside Steve Butcher and three other talented artists at Matt Jordan’s Ship Shape Tattoo Studio. Even though he’s only been tattooing for three years, Coen has made a name for himself with what he calls “mosaic flow”, a unique form of linework/dotwork tattooing style. He was inspired by Polynesian patterns, symmetry and use of flow on the body to create his unique style. You’ll find plenty of mosaic flow tattoos in the gallery below, but he also tattoos black and grey realism/portrait tattoos – although he’s no stranger to using color too. If you ever find yourself in New Zealand and looking for a unique tattoo style for your next tat, you can’t go wrong with Coen Mitchell. www.tattoogoldnz.com IG – https://www.instagram.com/coenmitchell/?hl=en FB – https://www.facebook.com/coenmitchelltattoogold/?fref=ts  Read More »

Forever: The New Tattoo – Recap of Berlin Book Launch

From Gestalten The suggestion that “tattoos are not just for sailors any more” is a familiar one. It might be surprising to learn, then, that the popular media has been reporting the arrival of tattooing in high society for nearly one hundred years. To celebrate the release of “Forever: The New Tattoo”, Gestalten hosted an evening of informative and entertaining talks by renowned tattoo artists Alex Binnie and Duncan X, as well as by heavily tattooed art historian Matt Lodder, author of the book’s preface. Further tattoo protagonists, namely Jon John, Liam Sparkes and Zoe Binnie, attended the event at the Gestalten Space in Berlin and gave us additional insight.

I am… We are…

Melissa Fusco Lotus Flower painting oil on wood Medium Res

By Melissa Fusco   Men and Woman look at life through a different lens.  There are plenty of professions where women out number men, and each man in that field will approach their projects differently than a woman. On the flip side, there are many professions that men out number women.  It seems that most of my life I have found myself in a field that I enjoy where men greatly out numbered women.  I can honestly say that I have felt the stress of being a woman in a predominately  male dominated industry multiple times in my life. This has always pushed me to work harder to really become the best that I could be. I strived to keep up, and  always felt good when I gained the respect from those I looked up to.  I feel in the flash back I am reflecting on my years of competitive snowboarding. However, even in my years of college there were more men than women in my classes, and artistically I excepted the fact that I am a woman, I see things differently than a man. I approach projects differently, from my overall vision, application, execusion, and time frame  within each project. Within the art world I immersed  myself in, I never really felt the stresses of man vs. woman. Then in 2003 my life change with my newly found passion of tattooing.Read More »
