Dan Gilsdorf “Sentences” Art Show

By Dan Gilsdorf
A few months back I told Crash that I was having a solo show at a gallery in Portland, Oregon and he thought it would be a good idea to put together an announcement for the TAM website. I dragged my feet on it, thinking that the exhibition didn’t have anything to do with tattoos and might not be the kind of thing that many tattooers would be into. But in the end he convinced me, so at the risk of boring his readership…  (more…)


Joe Larralde: Polynesian Tattooing in the Pacific Northwest

By Joe Larralde
Polynesian tattooing is alive and well here in the Pacific Northwest. Washington and Oregon have long been a hub for Hawaiian and other people of Pacific-island descent. Portland in particular has a large and ever growing population, and fortunately for me they are seeking out their roots when choosing their tattoos…

Dan Gilsdorf Tattoo Artist Magazine Article Preview for Issue #25

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. (more…)


Dan Sinnes Article Preview for Tattoo Artist Magazine Issue #24


Wido de Marval: So you spent some time in Barcelona.  Do you remember where you went? For different guest spots? You went to The States?

Dan Sinnes: Yeah, but I still stayed in Luxembourg a lot. Because I still had a girlfriend at the time, and two dogs. But when I had the opportunity to do guest spots, I’d do it. After I had my break-up and I was by myself, I put it to the max and I went to the United States and traveled as much as I could, alone. (more…)
