Sean Herman: Tattoo Collectors (Part III)

Yall

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] Read More »

Sean Herman: Jeff Ensminger Interview (Part II)

Jason Molina - Copy

By Sean Herman [Editor’s Note: To read Part I of this interview please click this link.] One of my favorite [stories] from him was the story about him “tattooing” himself. It’s pretty amazing.

Sean Herman: Jeff Ensminger Interview (Part I)

BFT - Copy

By Sean Herman So what did I do that night? I get home, I got the needle, the india ink, the thread, and here I am trying to poke a cross into my hand. I am like a weenie little kid, and I don’t want to poke myself with needles, so I’m trying to do it, but it just didn’t seem to want to go in. So what made the most sense to me was, ‘How do you INJECT the ink into the skin?’ I couldn’t figure that out.

With tattooing becoming so everyday, being saturated on television, in magazines, it’s created a different time in tattooing, and I wanted to see if people got into tattooing for different reasons now, as opposed to 10, even 20 years ago.  Read More »
