On the Road with Jacob Hanks: “Tattoo Nation,” the Movie

By Jacob Hanks

Reblogged from: http://tattooroadtrip.com/tattoo-nation-the-movie/

Danny-Trejo-239x300I am clearly not a film critic or member of the press, but I was fortunate enough to get invited to the private screening of the new film, “Tattoo Nation,” at the Arclight Theatre, in Hollywood, California. For a younger tattoo artist like me, it was a pretty big deal. If you have not heard of “Tattoo Nation,” it is a documentary, directed by Eric Schwartz and written by John Corry, about the “true story” of the black-and-gray tattoo revolution, and features several of the tattoo icons, many of whom I was exposed to, as a little boy, with my father, tattooing in Southern California. That is where the film takes place, when three unlikely tattooers—Jack Rudy, Good Time Charlie Cartwright andFreddy Negrete—came together to become the innovators of modern, fine-line, black-and-gray tattooing. The story, narrated by Corey Miller, addresses how the prison style that originated with young Mexican Americans has exploded into a worldwide phenomenon, giving rise to many new styles and pushing the limits of the popularity of tattooing as we know it today.

Sean Herman: Tattoo Collectors (Part III)

By Sean Herman
This past Hell City I was fortunate to tattoo three different collectors. Collectors are a whole different breed of client getting tattooed. They are passionately pursuing specific tattooers, and getting pieces to signify the work from that tattooer, no matter what the subject matter of the piece is. That always makes it an honor to tattoo a collector. During the weekend I had some people who were close to me tell me, “Hey, you keep going on about how awesome it is that they love tattooing, how about you write a blog about the collectors, like the one’s you write about tattooers.” She was right, why didn’t I think of that. Genius. After Hell City, I decided to get a few of them together to tell us their stories, I hope you enjoy… [Part I] [PartII]
