An Interview with Alex McWatt

When I first met Alex McWatt he immediately demanded to know where I lived, in Japanese. It caught me off guard but I answered him, in Japanese, and that was it. I passed the test and we were friends. I believe the next night ended in an odd hand poke circle of amazingness, but that’s a whole other story.

Sailor Jerry’s Birthday Celebration in Chicago and New York on January 14th

sailor jerry-102Courtesy of Sailor Jerry: On Monday January 14, we’re marking the 102nd birthday of Norman ‘Sailor Jerry’ Collins by giving 102 people Sailor Jerry anchor tattoos. An anchor tattoo is something special. A symbol of what grounds you. Sailor Jerry’s anchor flash displays the hallmarks that made him a legend. Bold lines. Refined forms. And a single-minded attention to detail. Look closely, he even incorporated his initials “SJ” into the design…  (more…)


Daniel Albrigo: Interview With Musical Guru “Knick” of Bro Safari (VIDEO)

By Daniel Albrigo
Over the last couple of years, my musical interests have changed, like they have many times over the course of my life and career.
A few years ago I was listening to mostly Reggae, Dancehall and tropically influenced music. After a while, this led right back into my interest in electronic music. Throughout high school and my early college years, my older brother went to a lot of parties, raves, skate demos, graffiti expos; all of which influenced and sparked my interest in art. It’s easy for me to say that both music and art went hand-in-hand from day one.

Lately, I have been listening to a lot of Hip-Hop, Dancehall, Bass music and Electronic Dance music. During the process of finding new producers and DJs to listen to, I’ve come to realize, like other genres of music, there is a notable interest in tattooing from many big name musicians and DJs. Even one of our own, Billy “The Gent” from Tattoo Paradise in Washington, D.C. is a music producer who is well on his way to becoming a major player in the scene.

As the stars align, (the way they strangely do on my daily path) I have been fortunate enough to be able to connect with a few of these people and over the next couple of TAM Blog posts, I will be interviewing them and introducing you to some brand new music.

My first interview is with veteran Bass music all-star, Nick Weiller. More commonly known as “Knick” from the legendary American Drum and Bass outfit Evol Intent, as well as being half of mash-up group, Ludachrist. Knick is currently making waves in the indie dance world under his newest moniker, Bro Safari. This is a good fit for our lead-off interview, being that Knick has a love for tattoos, music and is generally a great guy to sit down and chat with… [Interview and hilarious video on expanded page]

Crystal Morey: The Japanese HiHi (Horiyoshi III VIDEO)

By Crystal Morey
I want to continue blogging on some of the more obscure Japanese yokai and as chance would have it, Matty No Times from Three Kings Tattoo was just out here on tour and wanted to have Horiyoshi III tattoo something on him that is some way mirrored his visage… and I immediately thought of a HiHi. We pitched the idea to Horiyoshi III who thought it was hilarious and, sourcing Yoshitoshi, he did an amazing piece in about 45 minutes…

Jason Tyler Grace, On the Road: Part II

January 25, 2011

I have now been homeless for over a year…

I am in a coffee house in Tokyo, Japan as I write this. A coffee is about five-fucking dollars. I managed to find one of the cheapest places to sleep in Tokyo and it is $33 dollars a night. I don’t have a lot of money, so living on the cheap is a must and it is a serious challenge in the Land of the Rising Sun. (more…)
