TATTOO LIKE FARMS

tattoo like farm 2

By Marisa Kakoulas Reblogged from: www.needlesandsins.com We’ve all seen them. Those tattoo “fan” pages with the billion “Likes” on Facebook where you’ll find beautiful tattoos but without any information on the artist, photographer, or collector. Photos of me have popped up on these sites, and I have commented, “That’s me. My artist is Dan DiMattia, Calypso Tattoo,” but that all gets lost in the barrage of subsequent comments, often asking who did the work because they could not find my attribution. I’ve gotten tired of them and now simply report their use of my photos to Facebook, particularly because I don’t want to be associated — and even used by — these sites. These sites are not tattoo fan pages. They are “Like Farms.” As Yahoo News explains: “Here’s how it works. Someone creates a page and starts posting photos inspirational quotes or other innocent content. You like the page and it now shows up regularly in your news feed. Anytime you interact with a post, that activity shows up in your friends’ news feeds.The more likes the page gets, the more it shows up. The more comments each picture gets, the more power the page gets in the Facebook news feed algorithm.And that makes it more and more visible. [...] When the page gets enough fans (a hundred thousand or more)the owner might start placing ads on the page. Those ads show up in your news feed. They could be links to an app, a game, or a service they ... Read More »

This Is Not a Manifesto, It’s Just My Opinion

boycott-TLC

By Crash It’s almost as if tattooers are evolving, finally able to set aside trivialities in order to agree upon the more important issues. All this TLC outrage is kind of encouraging. Not simply because people are pissed, but because pissed people can affect change. It reminds me of the “alien invasion” metaphor which, in movie scripts, successfully manages to unite all mankind against the invading forces that threaten humanity’s very existence! A sleepy community wakes up and starts fighting back. The parallels are amusing… Read More »

dawn-cooke-1

Lately there has been concern about bloggers taking artists’ pictures without permission. I have been paying strict attention to this. When Frank worked for me at Depot Town there was one blogger, in particular, who was taking some of his images from Facebook and using it in his blog. (I won’t name this particular blog because this isn’t the important part.) Now, there are a few more out there since then… Read More »

Crowbar in Atlanta

By Rose Riot I chat almost daily with my friend and rock aficionado Don creator of, The Great Southern Brainfart blog. He and I met while shooting at a concert in the summer and in a recent conversation he asked if I was going to cover Crowbar. I had heard of them, but didn’t know their music. Don proceeds to rattle of an impressive list of adjectives to describe them. While he was still listing Crowbar’s attributes, I managed to find and listen to them (thank you technology). Within minutes, I knew that Don was a genius and I wanted to cover them. Read More »
