Life Happens Everyday, Balance is Key

IMG_4681

By Omar Edmison My wife of 18 years asked me awhile back if I was still writing a blog for Tattoo Artist Magazine. I shot her a pile of excuses about time & being busy at work, taking care of the shop & spending time with her & the kids. She looked at me with her amazingly sweet smile as if to say “Sure Omar, I love you I have your back but you’re throwing up a smoke screen.” She knows me really well, better than any other human being on the planet. Her words that she spoke next were small and to the point. she simply said ” you’re really good at what you do. you have wisdom to impart.” I am not making that part up; she really does speak like that. So here I am sitting in front of a computer trying to figure out what to “impart” on you, gentle reader. I started thinking about what I had said to my beautiful and talented better half. It wasn’t a lie I have been busy with an amazing varied rag tag bunch of folks who for what ever reason be it a bump on the head or just a history of poor life choices have asked me to mark them permanently. It is also true that -as any shop owner can attest to- when you own a tattoo shop stuff comes up, there are always fires to be put out, business needs handling. It is most decidedly true ...

Melissa Fusco: Breaking The Artist Bubble

crater-lake-wide-angle-clip-web

By Melissa Fusco Last month I had the pleasure of visiting  Off The Map Tattoo Studio in Grant’s Pass, Oregon. It was my first time ever visiting Oregon, and I must say it gave Colorado a little competition. I arrived with the all to familiar nervous, anxious, first time exploring butterflies that I feel in my stomach while starting a new journey.  Off The Map Tattoo Studio shares it’s name with Jeff Gogue’s Grant’s Pass location. I had a few days of tattooing lined up, and was very excited about that, however I was more focused on the plans I had made in advance. I coincided my guest artist spot around Jeff’s painting workshop. I had this trip planned out for about 10 months, and it seems the longer it takes for me to plan anything the more anxiety builds for the trip. Read More »

Cory Norris Tattoo Artist Magazine Article Preview Issue #26

cory-norris-2

Interview by Jeff Gogué Cory Norris: The approach that I take in life is going to be the same approach that I take for every tattoo, for the work that I do. I go at it with an open mind, I listen, I am observant. Obviously with a tattoo, you’re working on somebody else so they’re going to have their own agenda on what they’re wanting in the tattoo. You have to be respectful of that, but hopefully they’ll give you some leeway to open up and express yourself through it, to a certain degree… Read More »

Dan Gilsdorf Tattoo Artist Magazine Article Preview for Issue #25

dan-gilsdorf-1

Dan Gilsdorf: To me, it’s apples and oranges. Tattooing is very much tied up in the idea of technical skill, so whether I want to do a tattoo that has kind of a raw look to it, I need that raw look to be intentional. I need it to be something that I am able to achieve because I have a certain dexterity that I’ve built up over the years. I need to have control over the medium so that I can make it look the way that I want it to. But that’s a technical skill. Read More »
