Victor Farinelli: Best Ink Season II (Episode 9)

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 »

Victor Farinelli: Ghost B.C. Album Review

By Victor Farinelli  Picture this hippy who is tuned in and dropped-out. He has a huge goofy dog and hangs out with this jock, the jock’s girlfriend, and his girlfriend’s bookish friend. He wears the same green shirt, brown bell bottoms and combat boots every day. He must be high as a kite, because he loves to eat dog treats and thinks his dog actually talks. Not in the normal way that someone talks to their dog and the dog reacts with jumping, whining or rolling over. I mean the dog actually talks back. This dude’s friends seem to be just like fucking Jessica Fletcher in Murder, She Wrote: trouble always seems to follow them wherever they go, and he is too stoned to figure out that he may not want to hang around these squares any longer. ZOINKS!  Read More »

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 »
