Victor Farinelli: Ink Master Review (Episode 4)

By Victor Farinelli  “Tattoo Her What?!” or “I am a Tattoo Artist That Leads a Sheltered Life.” So the big hub-bub about this episode is that a gal wanted to get a phoenix coming out of her tunnel of love. It seems that all the artists thought this was over the top. They played this little segment on every preview. Come on folks. This is old hat. Dave Lum was thinking shit up like this all day in the late 80s/early 90s – and much better ideas I might add. Steve “throw the horns” Tefft asked, “Where do they get these people?” I think that they are in every town. One just hasn’t popped in your shop yet Mr. Tefft…  Read More »

Adam Lauricella: My Visit with Thom deVita

By Adam Lauricella I woke up Saturday and prepared for work. Grabbed my coffee and went through my other daily rituals then settled in at the tattoo parlor; I realized I wasn’t scheduled to work. I thought I should stay and most likely I’d pick up a few walk ins. Like millions of other people, I looked at my Instagram feed. There was a post from Chris Grosso of Tattoo Age and Vice.com. It simply said, “Come up to Newburgh for Thom deVita’s open studio 11-5.” For those that don’t know; Newburgh is just about 20 minutes from me. I guess I would scrap the walk ins and head over to the open studio. Although Mr. deVita lives in Newburgh I have never reached out to meet with him…  Read More »

Bryan Burk Article Preview for Tattoo Artist Magazine Issue #32

Cover By Byran Burk Interview by Miguel Montgomery & Adam Warmerdam Miguel Montgomery: On a little bit of a different note about your tattooing, I’ve seen some Japanese tattoos with American roses in the background. I haven’t seen too much of that. Did something spark that made you want to do that? Or did you just take it upon yourself, like ‘this snake needs a rose next to it’? Bryan Burk: There were a few conversations I had when I was working with Bob about how we should try doing that stuff. And there were some kids that I had tattooed on, one was my friend Jeff, who’d gotten a bunch of tattoos and wanted to fill in all the space around them. So he was one of the first people that I filled in with roses and water around everything because it kind of fit in all these little spaces he had. On his it worked, and I think if you’re gonna do blue water with roses and some American stuff, it works. As long as you kinda keep it pumped up on the American side of town; color clouds and blue water with black behind all of that, like Eddy Deutsche, like Eddy meets late Sailor Jerry-type Japanese compositions, it’ll work. But I think if you’re doing black Japanese background with grey water, for whatever reason, roses look weird…  Read More »

Health Issues With Tattooing (Mike Rubendall)

By Petri Aspvik Petri Aspvik: What type of physical problem have you encountered due to tattooing? Mike Rubendall: Before I was physically active and aware of what being in good health was, I had major back and neck pain. It seems to be a common problem amongst tattooers due to poor posture and long hours of tattooing throughout the years. Have you had to see a doctor, chiropractor, masseuse therapist, acupuncturist or anything similar because of problems or because you want to avoid them? I would regularly see a massage and physical therapist. They have been helpful for me for the most part. However, I feel maintaining a healthy diet and exercise is a more effective method to avoid any type of chronic pain caused by tattooing…  Read More »

Victor Farinelli: Ink Master Review (Episode 3)

By Victor Farinelli  This week’s episode is titled “80-Year-Old Virgin” or “I Have No Respect for Traditional Tattoos.” You don’t have to be part of the skinhead retirement program to have respect for traditional tattoos. The masonic temple that is Western tattooing is built on its foundation. It is our history. I was looking forward to this challenge to see if all these photo-realism/new school scamps could pull off something that a lot of middle of the road, i.e. this glum lot, take for granted. In short, do not get a traditional tattoo from any of these wenches and scalawags. It hurt my head to watch it. The only redeeming value of this episode is that Richard Stell was a guest judge, and Oliver looks like he could give two-shits-and-a-fuck about being there. Riddle me this: Why does Dave Navarro always have duckface? It is a peculiar look…  Read More »

I grew up in East L.A. right around the corner from Good Time Charlie’s…  Read More »

Big Gus Talks About Spike TV’s ‘Tattoo Nightmares’ Show

By Big Gus Hey guys! What’s the deal with Spike TV’s Tattoo Nightmares? Yes, the name sounds scary and confusing at first… I had the opportunity to be cast as one of the main artists on the show. Man, what an experience it was! I was pulling 16-hour workdays six days a week for a little over a month, which was not an easy task. You may think that it would be, but besides the filming, it also takes major focus to be tattooing while being filmed by over four cameras at a time, which adds to the already chaotic environment… Read More »
