Myke Chambers: Idiocracy?

Pirate ship tattoo myke chambers

By Myke Chambers I was talking with a friend a little while back about the state of tattooing today, comparing it with how things were just 15 or 20 years ago. He made a really good point… A lot of people say, “Yeah tattooing going mainstream sucks but now there are more people getting tattooed so we’re all making a lot more money.” But he then reminded me that yeah, 15 years ago there weren’t as many people getting tattooed but there also weren’t as many tattooers either, so anyone that wanted a tattoo didn’t have a whole lot of choices. Today there are sometimes a hundred shops in a city or maybe even upwards of 300 in a big city…  Read More »

Update: Richard Stell Benefit This Saturday June 15th

richard-stell-flyer

Richard Stell 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 tattooers from coast to coast 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…  Read More »

Facebook Allows Mastectomy Photos: Tattooed Model In Controversial Picture Speaks Out

yahoo-blog

By Beth Greenfield (Original story appears at Yahoo Shine.) After a storm of controversy, Facebook officially changed its policy on the posting of mastectomy photos, making it clear on Wednesday that they are now permitted. And that’s been welcome news to the women behind the once-banned photos, who have called it a victory for their effort to make the truth about breast cancer visual…  Read More »

Victor Farinelli: Best Ink Season II Season Finale (Episode 10)

jerods

By Victor Farinelli  In the words of the dead, drug addled rock star Jim Morrison, “This is the end, beautiful friend, the end.” Yes folks, this pop-culture game show dubbed “Best Ink Season II” has reached its final episode. What started off as a study in mediocrity, slowly digressed into a judge’s vehicle in auto-fellatio pseudo-fame. If the item that is to be fellatioed could be found, that is…  Read More »

Legislators Do Their Best Mike Tyson on Tattoos

heath-cutout-100x99_100_99_86_sha-40

By  Heath W. Fahle (Story originally appears at: http://www.ctnewsjunkie.com.) Connecticut’s legislators are about to do something crazier than Mike Tyson’s face tattoo: create a state licensing scheme for tattoo artists. At first glance, of course, the idea seems perfectly sensible. If my kid makes the dumb decision to get a tattoo, the parlor should at least be regulated in some way, the logic goes. Worrying about the kid is legitimate: one in three Americans under 30 have a tattoo, according to recent surveys, and the number is expected to grow… Read More »

Art Theft

David Palacios Thinking

By David Palacios Tattooing is spreading like a wild-fire! I’m not sure if it’s because all the tattoo shows out nowadays, or the ease of buying tattoo equipment. Whatever it may be, the industry is being saturated with tattooers, and there is a one main thing many of these tattooers are overlooking beside the respect for the craft. I’m talking about the artwork itself. What do tattooers and their clients see as custom art, flash and theft of artwork? There is a huge lack of originality and a spike in theft of artwork with all these new tattooers and we need to clarify what the boundaries are. Yes there are boundaries… Read More »

Victor Farinelli: Best Ink Season II (Episode 9)

djflash

By Victor Farinelli  It is down to the wire, folks. Four contestants are left in the game show of extreme skill and ability to see who is going to be named Best Ink. They must pay income tax on $100,000, and appear on the cover of Tattoo Magazine. HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA, “extreme skill!” I crack myself up sometimes! And Tattoo Magazine? I haven’t picked up this rag in a long time, but when I did, it had some of the crappiest tattoos out there. Back in the day, this wonderfully professional publication contained construction paper pages of black and white photos of color tattoos. Apparently, it has improved somewhat over the years, relying more on artists’ submissions than submissions by people with their own homemade tats… Read More »
