Nick Rodin Article Preview for Tattoo Artist Magazine Issue #31


Interview By Freddy Corbin Freddy Corbin: When it comes to customers, what is it that a customer might do that bugs you the most?  What things drive you the most crazy? Nick Rodin: A customer that you know doesn’t trust you I think is the worst customer. Good answer. Like if they’re just second-guessing everything you do. Because then you start second-guessing yourself, and then you start making mistakes.  So uncomfortable… Read More »

Screen Shot 2015-08-22 at 5.56.40 PM

Interview By Shane Enholm Shane Enholm: When is the first time you saw a tattoo? Freddy Negrete: The first time I was really struck with the whole tattoo thing I was 12 years old. I was raised in a foster home because my parents went to prison. So I was in a foster home and it was a white foster home. I grew up in a white area of San Gabriel but I knew the Mexican community from school. I was a troublemaker white kid so they liked me… Read More »

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…  Read More »

Amsterdam Tattoo Museum


“The Book of Lucky” by Lucky Bastard In the beginning there was the Red Light… In 1998, I took my first trip to Amsterdam to try and sit-in at the infamous Hanky Panky Tattoo. I was told by others that had worked for Hanky (Henk Schiffmacher) that it was not possible to get someone to vouch for you, or to call ahead to test the waters. You just had to meet Henk face-to-face, and hope he liked what you were doing. Not just artistically, but most importantly personality-wise… Read More »

Thom deVita, Ed Hardy, Nick Bubash Firecat Projects Art Show Opening Review


By John Niederkorn First off, let me just say that this is not a traditional “review” considering  the fact that I’m not an artist… With that said this show was (in my unprofessional opinion) AWESOME! The opening was held on Oct. 28th, 2011 at  Tony Fitzpatrick’s Firecat Projects, located quaintly in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood, and the only way I can describe the show room is, phenomenal… Read More »

Horitaka: Give ‘Em A Hand Project


By Takahiro “Horitaka” Kitamura When I think about good tattooing, I think of art executed by skilled craftsman. In an era of chain stores and mass production, it is always refreshing to see something hand-made. I met Jamie from RePop through my good friend Chris Yvon. Chris told me about Jamie and RePop, and the hand-made goods they produced. The product certainly lived up to the hype! Rings, buckles, wallets and more, all with old world craftsmanship, with some weight -no cheap materials, and a great retro feel… Read More »

New Amsterdam Tattoo Museum to Open on Schedule


By Danny Boy (A letter to Crash) Just wanted to let you and your readers know where we are at with the museum. We got 12 days left and going into the last round. This week should be pretty hectic, but that’s how we like it. The permanent exhibitions are just about finished as far as painters and carpenters go. Henk is working around the clock, painting away, having meetings, interviews, barking at everyone, overseeing some 50 people with the help of Annemarie Beers and Almar, still squeezing in some tattoos here and there, and still showing up in the mornings with new ideas and drawings of rooms and exhibitions he had made the night before. And all this is for you, tattoo lovers of the world… Read More »
