Crystal Morey: Horibenny (Part II)

By Crystal Morey Horibenny is one of my favorite monsters. Odder than bacon with legs, he oozes with creative zealotry and possesses an indiscriminate passion for life that is contagious. Benny is one of the first round-eyes to be given and to complete a formal tattoo apprenticeship here in Japan, and by this I mean, he cooked, fetched and lived for his sempai for over four years… A far cry from the ‘two week a year drop in to study and pay money’ apprenticeship awarded to many gaijin deshi these days. Benny is an accomplished painter, his tattoo work is delicate yet powerful, it often embodies the Japanese tenet that less is more, and his earnest demeanor only lends to his accomplishments as an artists. Ever the student, Ben works his ass of on a daily basis to learn more and push himself further and I’ve had the pleasure of watching him make significant artistic advancements over the past few years. He is not unlike one of those wind-up toys you point and they take off pointedly in one direction… only Ben’s nose is pointed at the moon and with his passion it wouldn’t surprise me at all if he got there… (Click here to read Part I) Read More »

Victor Farinelli: Best Ink Season II (Episode 8)

By Victor Farinelli  This week’s show was humdrum and tiresome. It is a chore to watch this poorly produced, sadly directed piece of shit. I could edit better in iMovie than these cats can with their high-dollar editing studio. This week’s focus was on realism. For the flash challenge, the troupe was taken to a side-street where, out of nowhere, this clearly staged accident-slash-gun fight happened right in front of them. The contestants were supposed to draw a “hyper-photo-realistic” rendition of it. It was just a big advertisement for the new Fast and Furious 6 movie. Lame… Read More »

Will a Tattoo Ever Hang in the Louvre?

By Helen Lewis (Story original appears at: http://www.newstatesman.com/.) You smell room G34B before you see it. It’s the smell of formaldehyde. “It’s like nothing else,” says my guide, Gemma Angel. “It’s death, but very old death – not like in a dissection room.” As we approach the corner of the corridor, a young woman comes round it, pushing a cart as tall as she is. “What’s in there?” asks Angel. “Prosthetic limbs,” comes the answer. “From the Paralympics display.”  Read More »

Victor Farinelli: Best Ink Season II (Episode 7)

By Victor Farinelli  This is not gonna be a long post because, frankly, this show is just becoming sad… Just sad. I thought this show would give me some great ammunition to vent the fury in my head. But alas, no. I have to take that out on my last place Brewers who, as I write this, beat the first place Cards. So I can’t even take it out on them. Fuck! I guess there are always the Astros…  Read More »

Richard Stell Benefit

Hello my name is Jason Freeman, I’m trying to organize an event for the Stell’s. As you may know Richard recently suffered a heart attack and has been diagnosed with heart disease. This couldn’t have happened at a worse time for them as they are in the middle of opening their new shop Pair-O-Dice in Oklahoma. This event will be held June 15th, 2013. I’m asking everyone to work a normal day on the 15th, and send those profits from that one day’s work as a donation to the Stell’s via PayPal. The donation PayPal is: RStellHeart@gmail.com. This way the donations will go directly to the Stell’s and I’m not the middle man or handling money. I know this may be rough for some to donate an entire day’s earnings, if you can’t do 100 percent then donate what you feel comfortable with. I will be making a poster for the event to be displayed on your Facebook and you can take that file from facebook and have it printed at your local copy place. It will be 11×17 standard size. Please contact me via text or phone call to get on the list as a participating tattooer or shop. Anyone that is willing to participate please forward my information to other tattooers and shops who you think would be interested in participating… Thank you and don’t forget to contact me: Jason Freeman Triumph Tattoo 241 West Second Street Reno, NV 89501 (775) 232-4484…  Read More »
