Which ones do you vote for?   Tattoos – Size Does Matter It’s all about the pain, the ink is just a souvenir! Sorry, I only like boys with tattoo’s Yes they hurt, no I will not regret them The world is divided into two kinds of people: those who have tattoos, and those who are afraid of people with tattoos. Show me a man with a tattoo and I’ll show you a man with an interesting past. Good tattoos aren’t cheap and cheap tattoos aren’t good.

R.I.P. Tattoos honoring fallen heroes of 2015

Screen shot 2016-01-14 at 9.55.44 AM

Gone but not Forgotten!! – Tattoos are one of the most endearing ways to remember those we’ve lost and those who’ve had the greatest impact on our lives. The beginning of the year, particularly the first few weeks in January, are often used to reflect on the year that just went by. Websites and YouTube channels have done “Top ___ of 2015” lists and videos as a way to acknowledge and remember the good times we all had throughout the year. While it’s important to remember the fun times, it’s also important to remember the people we’ve lost. Not just for the year, but for the rest of our lives. The world lost a lot of good people in 2015, from beloved movie icons to musical legends. Tattoos are one of the most intimate and sincere means we have of memorializing the memories of people who’ve touched our lives over the years, which is why it’s only fitting we remember some of the people we lost in 2015.   LEMMY from Motorhead Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister passed in late December 2015 of cancer. His impact on many in the tattoo culture and community was so great that hundreds of fans shared their Motorhead/Lemmy tattoos with us on our social media, paying tribute to this fallen hero. We collected a bunch of them here- Wes Craven Even people who aren’t fans of horror films likely recognize Wes Craven’s name. He was the creator of Freddy Kruger and a legendary horror film director who ...Read More »

You Decide, Trick or Treat? 13 Halloween Tattoos

Darcy Nutt of Chalice Tattoo in Boise, Idaho

Halloween, also known as All Hallows’ Eve, has its roots  in a pre-Christian festival from about 2,000 years ago which was held in the beginning of November. The festival was called Samhain (pronounced “sah-win”). Samhain, means “summer’s end” in Gaelic. Now, the opposite of that is, Samhainophobia, which is the fear of Halloween or the fear of the festival of the dead. Hard to imagine someone fearing the Festival of the Dead, after all, what could be more normal than dead people having a festival?  While there remains some debate with folklorist and historians about the exact origins of Halloween, one thing is for sure, if is started some 2,000 years ago and we are still celebrating it, All Hallow’s Eve deserves some special attention!

Jeremy Sutton on the opening of Electric Anvil Tattoo


By Nicki Kasper Tell us a little bit about your history in the tattoo industry… How long have you been tattooing?  What shops did you call home before opening Electric Anvil? Etc… I have been tattooing for 18 years. Josh Egnew has been tattooing for 10 years. We both came from Three Kings Tattoo. Josh has tattooed in Brooklyn his whole career. He started out at Hand of Glory. Before Three Kings I worked at Guru Tattoo in San Diego and before that with Russ Abbott at Ink and Dagger. Who do you credit for teaching you the trade, and what was that experience like?  I learned to tattoo in Toccoa, Georgia from an old biker named Ole Roy. He taught me all the foundations of tattooing. But I really accredit the crew at Alien Arts Tattoo (now the crew of Anonymous Tattoo) in Savannah, Georgia for really helping me understand the craft of tattooing. They are also incredible artists so the envelope was always being pushed. Josh never had a formal apprenticeship, but was fortunate to have some great people looking out for him. Regino Gonzales and Marco Serio being at the top of that list. Between those guys and all of the amazing people he’s worked with over the years at Hand of Glory, Three Kings and on the road, I’d say the experience has been pretty fantastic. What made you decide to open a shop?  Well it’s been a long time coming. Just turning the key to ...Read More »
