Brighton Tattoo Convention: On the Road from the United Kingdom

smoking fucking kills

By Kent Here I am again, doing the airport shuffle. Those old familiar feelings of anxiety and excitement brew as I get ready for my first international trip of the year. I hate airports, flying, leaving my family and home, but I love new places and people so I deal…Read More »

West Texas Tattoo Convention: On the Road from San Angelo, Texas

Alex Trufant getting tattooed by Aaron Coleman

By John After a week-long stay in Austin, Texas (ATX) following the Star of Texas Convention, I jumped in a cargo van and drove out to the West Texas Tattoo Convention in San Angelo. It turned out that a few people from the ATX show also made the scary journey through the west Texas dessert, including Richard Stell, Rock of Ages, Austin Tattoo Co., Electric 13 Tattoo and Triple Crown Tattoo. I’m sure there were others and I apologize for not mentioning you here.Read More »

Star of Texas Tattoo Art Revival: On the Road from Austin, Texas

All the cures to the common cold...

By John It happened as soon as I landed in Austin, Texas. Not the Star of Texas Tattoo Art Revival– that would start the following day… however it didn’t take long to see some friendly faces, deep in the heart of Texas. I was posted up in baggage claim, doing my normal multi-tasking: texting, listening to music, checking e-mails, playing Words With Friends (you know) the usual mindless activities while I waited for the baggage gods to release my personals.Read More »

Crowbar’s Kirk Windstein Talks About Tattoos, Rock Music and New Album, Sever The Wicked Hand

Crowbar in Atlanta

By Rose Riot I chat almost daily with my friend and rock aficionado Don creator of, The Great Southern Brainfart blog. He and I met while shooting at a concert in the summer and in a recent conversation he asked if I was going to cover Crowbar. I had heard of them, but didn’t know their music. Don proceeds to rattle of an impressive list of adjectives to describe them. While he was still listing Crowbar’s attributes, I managed to find and listen to them (thank you technology). Within minutes, I knew that Don was a genius and I wanted to cover them.Read More »

Jason Tyler Grace, On the Road: Part I (Photos)

jtg-mountain

Last year I decided that I wanted to leave the States and try to travel around the world. I sold pretty much everything I owned and I have been traveling in South America for 11 months now. In the beginning I was traveling with a girl and was not as focused on tattooing as I am now, tattooing was always meant to be a huge part of the trip (the main focus) to see if I could make it around the world, working as I went. But pussy has a strong pull on a man…Read More »

The Geometric Tattoo Wizard – Thomas Hooper Article

Screen Shot 2015-08-22 at 6.15.15 PM

Thomas Hooper is one of the most influential artists of our time. His application of sacred geometry and mandala styles, mixed with solid tattoo fundamentals and a virtually all-black palette on large-scale work has help ignite an entire movement in the tattoo world. Below is a short excerpt from Thomas’ TAM interview –   Thomas Hooper: Something I’m very aware of is that I get to do a lot of work that the client didn’t ask for. I get away with doing tattoos on people that might be a good idea from a certain point of view (mine!),but I have to talk them into seeing what I see and make them believe it’s going to be great. The amount of self-confidence required for this in any other case, I would consider as arrogance, but it’s this firm belief that what I am trying to do will look good that allows me to get my ideas into their skin, so I’m left with the question, what am I? Artist, asshole or both?Read More »

Initiation: You enter the shop and auditory impressions hit you right away. The tattoo machine is humming it’s in a distinct key, the sound you are hearing took a long time for the person who is using the machine to figure out how to perfect. A good tuned machine will resonate perfectly. No chatter or rattle just a smooth sounding electro-harmonic frequency. Years of technical information has been passed down to have this strange awkward device sound the way it does let alone perform such an complex task consistently.Read More »

Mike Ness: Tattoo Artist Magazine Interview from Social Distortion, Lucero and Frank Turner Fall Tour (Photos)

Social Distortion Live in ATL

By Crash At the start of last week I got a call from Jimmy Perlman, a tattooer comrade of mine that some of you probably know as a tour manager for various rock bands. Currently he’s working with the band Lucero who, along with Frank Turner are opening up for Social Distortion this fall. It seemed they were coming into Atlanta on Nov. 9 and (as is Jimmy’s custom no matter what city he’s in) he invited a few tattooers to a fuckin’ awesome VIP experience with the bands.Read More »

State of Grace Tattoo Convention, San Francisco: PART II

DeVita "Lady Watching" in the Morning

By Crash To continue with my list of highlights from the SF show… It’s always a treat seeing Thom deVita and, as usual, finding him in the hotel lobby every morning by 7a.m. (He and I are commonly the only people stirring at this hour). Sitting with Thom and listening to a few of his stories each morning was a real treat. The first morning I asked him what he was doing…”Are you people-watching?” “Lady-watching,” he said, with a wry grin. DeVita also sold some of his art (which we will soon be featuring on the TAM site) and he did several tattoos on some devoted tattooers over the weekend. (It was the first time I’d seen him wear gloves!)Read More »

State of Grace Tattoo Convention, San Francisco: PART I

State of Grace Dinner of Champions

By Crash: This has long been one of my favorite conventions each year and 2010 was better than ever. A million ‘Thanks’ to Horitaka and crew for doing such a fine job organizing and promoting the STATE OF GRACE show (as usual) and for taking such good care of TAM and all the attending artists/vendors. On Sunday evening, following the power outage at our hotel (more on that later) and early-ending to the convention,  my partner Kent Smith, friend Hunter Spanks and I all shared my usual sushi and sake (cold, unfiltered) celebratory dinner at the very fine Barracuda Japanese Restaurant. During the meal we each discussed our favorite aspects of the weekend. It was an interesting exercise and this blog entry is the result. I hope it proves entertaining to readers.Read More »
