oliver-peck-festival-poster

By Kiernan Maletsky Reblogged from: http://blogs.dallasobserver.com Oliver Peck’s annual tattoo feats on Friday the 13th are already the stuff of legend and record (he’s literally in the Guinness book for it). But this year marks the start of a huge development for the event: It will now be a tattoo AND music festival, and Reverend Horton Heat will co-present alongside Peck. The festival goes from Friday, September 13 to Sunday, September 15, and tickets are on sale now. They’re $20 for a one-day pass, $40 for a weekend pass or $100 for VIP, which includes access to a “private club” on Elm Street. Read More »

Adam Lauricella: Thom deVita Pop-Up Gallery Review

DeVita1

By Adam Lauricella The “pop-up gallery” is a phenomenon that is refreshing yet pragmatic. It’s something doable for artists who may not have the resources to establish a long-standing art gallery yet, still show their work or the work of others. Often times these galleries take shape in empty spaces or open in unsuspecting locations that aren’t in use. The term pop-up gallery is loosely used to describe the event that went down the weekend of January 11-13, 2012 at Kings Avenue Tattoo… Read More »

Tattoo Culture Magazine: Launch Party Time

tcm-launch-0

By Nicki Kasper Oh what a night… The TCM launch party was more than any of us could have asked for. We wanted to celebrate all the work and effort we’ve put into this project and really blow it up for the people who showed up to support us. I think it’s safe to say that no one left disappointed…  Read More »

Sailor Jerry: Oliver Peck Hold Fast (VIDEO)

oliver-2

Courtesy of Salior Jerry: Oliver Peck aka “Ducky” needs little introduction ever since he joined the judging panel on the hit Spike TV tattoo competition Ink Master, but this guy’s been at it for awhile. Based at Elm Street Tattoo in Dallas TX, a shop he founded with Dean Williams, Oliver has been laying in color since he was 19 years old. He even holds the Guinness World Record for most tattoos done in 24 hours with 415 pieces of his favorite subject, the number 13… Read More »

Victor Farinelli: Ink Master Review (Finale)

steve

By Victor Farinelli  Well, the end is finally here. In the two-episode finale of this season of Ink Master, I have been left wondering the meaning of life. Well no, not really, but it has a good ring to it. Our contestants are finally whittled down to the last four. In the first of the two episodes, the contestants did not have to do a flash challenge. It was straight to the elimination challenge. They had to demonstrate all the different aspects of tattooing to see who gets to go to the live finale…  Read More »

Victor Farinelli: Ink Master Review (Episode 11)

jesse

By Victor Farinelli  It is getting down to the wire. Just a few more episodes to go until one of the contestants gets a $100,000 paycheck they have to pay taxes on and a feature in Inked Magazine. “Inked.” I hate that term. It is just as bad as “human canvases.” Hey man, I am going to go down to the tat shop and get inked! YOLO! Then, I am going to go watch The Hobbit! FRODO! Read More »

Victor Farinelli: Ink Master Review (Episode 10)

twinbrothersofdifferentmothers copy

By Victor Farinelli  Just when I start to think that some of these cats are humble and are willing to learn, then they go say some arrogant stupid shit. The show starts off with Jesse fucking saying, “You know what coasting is? That is what I did for the Japanese challenge… I would rather lose for doing me than win for not doing me.” Then why the fuck did he want to be on the show? It’s not some fucking highfalutin serious goddamn art exposition. It is a fucking game show. Period. End of fucking explanation. I will take “Douche Bags” for $200 please, Alex. At the end of the season the winner gets a paycheck they have to pay taxes on. If you got into this for any other reason than the money, and being on TV, you are fucking fooling yourself. You do what you have to do to play the game because at the end of the day, that’s all this is… a game. If it was not on Spike, it would be on the Game Show Network…  Read More »

Victor Farinelli: Ink Master Review (Episode 9)

sarah

By Victor Farinelli  This week’s episode opens with Sarah bitching about the judges not giving her a good honest critic. I call bullshit. The judges have actually done a pretty good job of telling this motley crew what they did wrong and what they need to improve on. I have been in a lot of shops in my years and have observed a lot of apprentices on their road to Tattooville, and I have seen some who have been torn new assholes for the tattoos they have attempted to do… Read More »

Victor Farinelli: Ink Master Review (Episode 8)

sarahmarkflash

By Victor Farinelli  Ink Master is a train wreck and Sarah Miller is the engineer. As I said in my last post, she needs serious mood stabilizing medication. She is a shitstorm of manic depression. This episode is not different. This episode was the black and gray challenge, and the special guest judge was Mr. Freddy Negrete. The twist this time around was that they had to work in teams. For the flash challenge, the contestants had to create an image on scratchboard. Since Tatu Baby was the winner of last week’s elimination challenge, she got to pick the teams for this flash challenge. She stuck Sarah with Mark “I got one foot out the door” Matthews. The other teams were Clint Cummings with Jamie Davis, Steve Tefft with Sebastian Murphy, and Tatu Baby with Jesse Smith…  Read More »

Victor Farinelli: Ink Master Review (Episode 7)

sarahmiller

By Victor Farinelli  A long time ago in, in a galaxy far, far away… a girl needed lithium. Sarah Miller needs some serious medication. One minute, she is bouncing off the walls she is so excited, the next she is about to kill herself. She displayed this so well in this episode: The Star Wars challenge… Read More »

Victor Farinelli: Ink Master Review (Episode 6)

steveflashchallenge

By Victor Farinelli  Let’s celebrate the land of the free, home of the brave with GUNS! Sorta like banjos, only different. Episode VI was “all about attention to detail,” Dave Navarro emphasized. For the flash challenge, the contestants had to carve an image into the stock of a gun. Guns owned by real, meat-eating, beer-bellied, heart-diseased ‘Mericans! Where’s my Rascal scooter?

Victor Farinelli: Ink Master Review (Episode 5)

piston copy

By Victor Farinelli  Before I get started on the recap, I want to rattle some cages. There is some gab on the inter-webs about the contestants on Ink Master “stealing” tattoos from other artists. Don’t know if it is true or not, but some interesting tidbit came to my awareness that is kinda funny. Not funny: “ha-ha,” I mean funny “hmmmm.” On Episode IV, Trey “Big Daddy” Benham did a piston with flames on his client’s arm for the new school challenge. It was a decent tattoo, one of the better ones I have seen of that kind of idea. Well, buzz-buzz, the inter-webs start throwing around the suggestion that this was actually taken, almost exactly, from a tattoo that was done by one of last year’s contestants, Jeremy Miller. So like the old “You Make the Call” segment on Monday Night Football… well, yeah; you make the call…  Read More »

Victor Farinelli: Ink Master Review (Episode 4)

gypsytray

By Victor Farinelli  “Tattoo Her What?!” or “I am a Tattoo Artist That Leads a Sheltered Life.” So the big hub-bub about this episode is that a gal wanted to get a phoenix coming out of her tunnel of love. It seems that all the artists thought this was over the top. They played this little segment on every preview. Come on folks. This is old hat. Dave Lum was thinking shit up like this all day in the late 80s/early 90s – and much better ideas I might add. Steve “throw the horns” Tefft asked, “Where do they get these people?” I think that they are in every town. One just hasn’t popped in your shop yet Mr. Tefft…  Read More »
