Your Bed is Your New Tattoo’s Worst Enemy!

photo

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 »

Durb Morrison: Tattoo Artists, Loosen Your Belts While You Are Tattooing!

Durb

By Durb Morrison I have been tattooing for 22 years of my life currently and have tattooed nearly everyday over the last two decades. Throughout my career, I’ve had many of the common physical discomforts that us tattoo artists get like back aching all the time, forearm pain, numbness in my hand, fingers and forearm, even right ear hearing damage from machines running close to my ear daily. I’ve also worked in a lot of different places… some with the luxury of nice chairs, and some (like conventions) where I was completely folded in half, and leaning forward to get to the client’s tattoo. I twist to the right everyday to dip ink, and grab soap and ointment all while wearing a thick leather belt. The thick belts that I wore and my repetitive twisting while tattooing over the last two decades are what lead to the permanent nerve damage I now have in my left leg…  Read More »

Big Gus Goes Off the Map at the Paradise Tattoo Gathering

big-gus-1

By Big Gus Alright, this year’s trip to Paradise Tattoo Gathering was super cool, and I also had a chance to go to Off The Map Tattoo and guest-spot the week of the show. Let’s just say that the name Off The Map is fitting! It’s in small town USA where nobody locks their doors or cars, which seemed weird to me because back home in L.A. we lock up everything, including the dogs… Read More »
