By Michelle Salemi (Original story appears at: http://variety.com/) Skin artwork was not a sign of rebellion but camaraderie at the L.A. preem of D&E’s doc “Tattoo Nation” on March 28. “There’s just such great soul in these tattoo artist, and then if you have the talent, pass it on!” tattoo artist Don Ed Hardy said before the Arclight screening. Actor Danny Trejo, whose tattoos include a family portrait of his children on his back, gets asked a lot about his ink: “People ask me if my tattoos have hindered my career. I say, ‘For the first five years of it.’ I played inmate number one. The only thing I heard the director say was ‘Danny, take off your shirt.’ “ Read More »

By Pep Williams Yesterday I had a chance to see a private screening of Tattoo Nation with the creators of the film: the directors, producers, editor and so on.

All I have to say is this film is an amazing piece of art and history…  Read More »

Valerie Vargas Article Preview for Tattoo Artist Magazine Issue #31

Interview By Chad Koeplinger Chad Koeplinger: Who are some of the tattoo artists that you were interested in at that point? What were you looking at tattoo-wise? What was blowing your mind? Valerie Vargas: At that point I don’t think I became fully aware of people that I like now until I already started my apprenticeship, because that’s when I was allowed to have a look through the books that for me at the time were way too expensive -I couldn’t afford them. And my boss had all of the Tattootimes. He never looked at them anymore but they were up on the shelf and any time it was quiet I’d have a look. I became more aware of Ed Hardy and more of the West Coast kind of guys. But even then I was still struggling to remember names, I just knew the work. I remember some backpieces that are still pretty awesome. And it was also through my friendship with Stewart in the beginning that he was really on it. He knew who everybody was, what they were doing, and he was totally stoked about everything, and he taught me a fair bit about it…  Read More »

Interview By Freddy Corbin Freddy Corbin: When it comes to customers, what is it that a customer might do that bugs you the most?  What things drive you the most crazy? Nick Rodin: A customer that you know doesn’t trust you I think is the worst customer. Good answer. Like if they’re just second-guessing everything you do. Because then you start second-guessing yourself, and then you start making mistakes.  So uncomfortable… Read More »

Interview By Shane Enholm Shane Enholm: When is the first time you saw a tattoo? Freddy Negrete: The first time I was really struck with the whole tattoo thing I was 12 years old. I was raised in a foster home because my parents went to prison. So I was in a foster home and it was a white foster home.

Jack Rudy Speaks Out Against TLC’s, Tattoo School

[*Editor's Note* Mr. Rudy graciously permitted TAM to re-print his statement on the TAM Blog. The statement appears exactly the way it is found on Jack Rudy's Facebook page.] Jack Rudy “Good Time Charlies Tattooland” Official Statement Re: TLC’s show Tattoo School I think this new tattoo school show that TLC is about to launch is the biggest bunch of bullshit I have ever heard in my 36 years of tattooing. I guess it’s not bad enough that tens of thousands of unqualified, untutored, “wanna be” tattooers have flooded this industry largely due to the bullshit tattoo shows that have already been on TV for years, because they inadvertently encourage people to get in to tattooing by making it look infinitely easier than it actually is… Read More »
