JoJo Ackermann: Fear of a Flash Planet

IMG_2103

By JoJo Ackermann About six months ago, three guys in their early 20s walked into the shop around opening time with the request to have a heart and the word “Mom” tattooed on their asses. Honestly, I thought they were just screwing around but after a few laughs and some more questions, I realized these dudes were serious about getting it done…  Read More »

JoJo Ackermann: That’s The Impression That I Get

jojo-ackermann-6

By JoJo Ackermann “Tattoos are my life!” That is a bold statement. I have heard it from beginners with less than five years and from veteran tattooers with more than 20 years in the craft… Hell, I have even said it myself. It would seem that most people who begin their journey into the world of tattooing understand that it is a lifetime commitment, which reaches far beyond the ability to just apply a tattoo.

Jay Brown: 28 Machine Builders Part IV of IV

dano-collins-1

By Jay Brown As a machine builder these are some of the things I look for in a machine. And I am not saying that this is it, the gospel, this is just the way I look at it. So the other day I thought to myself, “Man, this would make a great article.” As I started listing candidates for the article I found that the list got long really fast. Thus, I decided that I would stop at 28, because it’s as good of a number as any, and it was enough for a broad spectrum of builders. So here it is, 28 tattoo great machine builders… (If I missed anyone don’t be offended, it’s nothing personal, I just had to think of space. Maybe there’ll be additions in a future article?) So without further ado here they are, starting with historical builders, because they were the pioneers and should be recognized first, (plus I’m a history buff) and then moving to present day. Again this is not a Top 10 list, just a list of great builders, hope you enjoy… PART IV on expanded page… Read More »
