The Real Jimmy Q – James Edward Quaintance III

new-infographic (1)

James Edward Quaintance III or Jimmy Q is a pro skater, model, tattoo artist and rock star born in Los Angeles. He is the lead singer of the punk rock band called Former Lovers. James was originally a pro-skater but he started modeling in 2011 and immediately made an impression with his very signature look. He was born in Venice and was later signed by Select Models where he opened the door for tattooed models to walk the runway in serious shows.  Jimmy was in all the major shows (Oliver Spencer, Pringle of Scotland) while also appearing in numerous magazines (Nylon, Huge, Wylder, lookbook for Beautiful Fül). James obviously loves tattoos and he is a walking talking piece of art and a promoter of the FreshTrends culture that’s so big in LA. He doesn’t only proudly showcase his tattoos, but he also practices – he’s a professional tattoo artist himself and did his apprenticeship in Venice. content/uploads/2016/03/tumblr_m93cqcTbKF1qcjubko1_540.jpg” alt=”tumblr_m93cqcTbKF1qcjubko1_540″ width=”623″ height=”935″ />Read More »

Successful High Fashion Models with Tattoos

norman

High fashion has only in the past few years begun to accept heavily tattooed models in its shows but it has come quite a long way in a short time. Paris Fashion Week featured more heavily tattooed models this year than ever before and most of the people sporting tattoos on the runway aren’t considered tattoo aficionado collectors.  When it comes to fashion one would think it would be only the best tattoo artists in the industry displayed on their skin. We are however, thrilled that there are more and more inked bodies adorning the runways today, and don’t expect this to drop off anytime soon. Tattoos are here to stay on the catwalk.  So who are the tattooed gods and goddesses that have taken over fashion? Here are the hottest high fashion models out there right now.  Read More »

By DiAngelea Millar Reblogged from: http://www.latimes.com Mark Mahoney has inked some of the top names in Hollywood. Operating out of an upscale tattoo parlor near the western end of the Sunset Strip, the owner of the Shamrock Social Club has become the go-to man for celebrities seeking tattoos. On a recent Thursday evening, wearing a fashionable gray suit over brown alligator-skin shoes, the lanky 56-year-old strolled through the busy studio, decorated with three-leaf clovers and portraits of the Virgin Mary, on his way to his customary 5:30 p.m.-to-1 a.m. shift. Several of Mahoney’s nine employees were already at work, their needles buzzing over custom tattoos that cost from $500 for a single sitting to many thousands of dollars for an elaborate tattoo.Read More »

Body Art: The Ultimate Accessory

By Sali Hughes Re-blogged from: http://www.neverunderdressed.com “Tattooing is gross and just another form of self harm” wrote a female journalist I followed briefly on Twitter, and who was culled almost as soon as I’d typed my flamer in response. As a tattooed woman with a reasonably healthy self esteem and zero desire to hurt myself, I was partly furious at her ignorance about tattooing and mental health, but mainly baffled as to why she even gave a toss what anyone did to their own body. Her tweet came as a comment on some recent and somewhat nebulous survey results showing that French men had less respect for women with a lower back tattoo (known to Daily Mail readers as the appallingly sexist ‘tramp stamps’) and assumed those women would be ‘easier’ (a term I thought had been retired in around 1976).Read More »
