The Canvases Walk in the Door: A Brooklyn Tattoo Parlor Popular with foreigners

28JOINT1-articleLarge

By Carroll Gardens Source: www.nytimes.com The brownstone-lined streets of Carroll Gardens may not seem like much of a tourist destination. But brand Brooklyn is ascendant these days, and foreigners come to idle at farm-to-table restaurants and browse in fanciful boutiques.And farther south, where affluence gives way to aluminum siding and Smith Street dead-ends under the din of the Gowanus Expressway, visitors come for a more permanent souvenir: authentic Brooklyn ink. On a recent Thursday, Yossy Yoshino, 35, a tattoo artist from Japan, lay face down on a massage table at Smith Street Tattoo Parlour while Dan Santoro, 31, inscribed a pig in a bikini on his back (“three tops, one for each set of teats,” Mr. Santoro explained). The words “Weird World” floated above the pig’s head. Mr. Yoshino, a teardrop tattoo dripping from his eye, said he had traveled thousands of miles from his home in Okinawa to get a “New York tattoo.” Just what makes a New York tattoo can be a bit difficult to pin down. The shop’s owner, Bert Krak, 35, described the parlor’s style as traditional American, with a bit of Japanese thrown in. Read More »

P.INK DAY 2013

P.Ink Day

By Marisa Kakoulas Reblogged from: www.needlesandsins.com In March, we wrote about the Personal Ink Project or P.INK, which is an incredible resource that offers tattoo inspiration, ideas and info for breast cancer survivors. It also is a place where these women can research and perhaps even connect with skilled artists who can transform mastectomy scars into beautiful works of art. On October 21, 2013, that connection will be made when 10 tattoo artists will tattoo scar-coverage or nipple-replacement tattoos on 10 breast cancer survivors at Saved Tattoo in Brooklyn, NY. You can help make this event happen by being a part of the crowd-funded project for as little as $10. There are also tons of perks for those who can give more. For $50, there’s digital swag and temp tattoos. For $500, you get an art print of one of the tattoos you helpedg fund. And the art is guaranteed to be stellar considering the line-up: Virginia Elwood from Saved Tattoo Stephanie Tamez from Saved Tattoo Michelle Tarentelli from Saved Tattoo Ashley Love from NY Adorned Michelle Myles from Daredevil Tattoo Nikki Lugo from Tattoo Paradise Amanda Wachob Roxx from 2Spirit Tattoo Joy Rumore from Twelve 28 Tattoo Miranda Lorberer from Pop’s Tattoo Emporium I’ve had the pleasure of working with the P.INK team, in a small way, on this event. P.INK is a “nights-and-weekends passion project” of a handful of employees at the Boulder-based ad agency CP+B who had been affected by cancer. Their goal is to see this project expand, including more P.INK Days should this first event be a success. ... Read More »

The Worn Path: Pierre Botardo

HEADER

By Danny Reis My name is Pierre Botardo I’m currently living in Brooklyn New York and I am age 34. I grew up in Virginia Beach, Virginia and I was interested in tattooing pretty early, I guess. When I was in junior high, I was already doing stick and pokes on myself with a sewing needle and some ink. I remember trying to convince my friends to do it. That didn’t really work out because they weren’t into the idea of a tattoos, but I was proud if it.  It was fun and painful; but that’s what drew me to tattooing because it was a kind of “club”. The pain is a part of the whole experience. Even to this day, I still see it that way. You have to “put up or shut up”. Also, around this time, tattoos weren’t very popular. It was still considered to be an “outsider” sort of thing; which I loved. I honestly didn’t think about tattooing as a career until maybe 2007 or 2008.  Around the first time I  moved to Brooklyn.  It was through a friend who suggested it. I was dead broke and I thought for some reason, it was something that would force me to focus on a path. I had a friend who was showing me a few things here and there out of the apartment. Good habits like setting up and breaking down the station and sanitation of equipment. After struggling with finding regular work, I thought it ... Read More »

An Interview with Alex McWatt

IMG_2709

By Crystal Morey When I first met Alex McWatt he immediately demanded to know where I lived, in Japanese. It caught me off guard but I answered him, in Japanese, and that was it. I passed the test and we were friends. I believe the next night ended in an odd hand poke circle of amazingness, but that’s a whole other story. Read More »

New York City Tattoo Convention: On the Road in Brooklyn? (VIDEO)

nyc-1

Of all the things I’ve lost, I miss my mind the most… New York has missing pieces of my memory buried in her blanket of billboards, bright lights and broken glass… The end of the weekend had a very Fear-and-Loathing-in-Las-Vegas feel to it… There are cell phone camera-flashes, and small chunks of larger events replaying in a non-descriptive manner in my mind. I can recall middle pieces that have no end and beginnings that have no middle or ending… They only thing I’m 100 percent positive on; I had a good time… I think?

Jason Tyler Grace, On the Road: Part II

jason-tyler-garce-1

January 25, 2011 I have now been homeless for over a year… I am in a coffee house in Tokyo, Japan as I write this. A coffee is about five-fucking dollars. I managed to find one of the cheapest places to sleep in Tokyo and it is $33 dollars a night. I don’t have a lot of money, so living on the cheap is a must and it is a serious challenge in the Land of the Rising Sun. Read More »
