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. The book See photos from the event here and More videos on gestalten.tv   Read More »

Screen shot 2015-08-31 at 3.31.32 PM

By Markus Lenhard After reading the [TAM Blog] post about health issues by Marcus Kuhn, I was inspired to share my own ramblings and experiences with you. Over the years I had countless tension migraines from working in sub-optimal lighting conditions, lower and upper back pain. Lumbago, cramps in the Shoulder, neck and head muscles resulting in different flavors of terrible multi day headaches. Tendonitis of the wrist, tendonitis of both elbows, cramps in the calf, tingly fingers and ass-cheeks to a total loss of feeling in some parts of my right thigh… I am out of permanent trouble for more than a year now. I still sometimes have a bit of a backache or long for a massage but then I am doing horrible long sessions on people who are traveling from far and sit on the computer a lot…  Read More »

Markus Lenhard: The End of Paper


By Markus Lenhard It has been about two years since I have rendered my last tattoo design on paper now, and I have gotten many requests to explain why I abandoned paper and how I went about it. Let me go off on a tangent for a bit to explain how and why I make decisions, though… Since I can remember I am suffering from strong Boredom Intolerance Disorder.

Noon Tattoo Artist Magazine #30 Article Preview


Interview By Gene Coffey  Gene Coffey: There are a lot of people in Europe now that do your style. Noon: Well, not really my style. They’re definitely influenced by your style though… Yes, they’re influenced. There are some people that try to make copies every time. Like Bugs has been copied a lot, or Guy Aitchison has been copied, or Paul Booth and so on. So as soon as it’s on the market, you can get copied. I think when I started tattooing I really liked the work of guys like Guy Aitchison or Bugs or Paul Booth. Even if it’s not my style, I really liked Bugs’ style. But the way that these people went into their universe and tried to work in their universe making no concession for traditional codes, like Japanese, traditional Americana… I really like the way Bugs had a classical influence on the new generation to go their way, to take up their style. If people are now following the way it’s going in Europe now partly because of me, I’m just really proud of that. This is also what I want people to do. Go your way, develop your style, there’s a lot to do. I think we’re really only at the beginning of tattooing. We are the beginning. It will change a lot. A lot of artists came into tattooing because it was a moneymaker, but a lot of artists are interested in this art because it can be a way of art. ... Read More »
