Yesterday we shared this picture that Tim Beck of Freedom Ink Tattoo Co. posted over the weekend. The picture is from Tim’s neighborhood, and which was in the path of the tornados and severe weather that rolled through the Midwest this weekend.
Many people have asked how they can help Tim and his family, and several people/companies in the tattoo world have stepped up. Here are the details:
Great Lakes Tattoo will be donating all proceeds from merchandise to Tim and his family help rebuild. Crew necks $40, tshirts $20 and patches $5. Stop into the shop or PayPal your order (friends and family) to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Dirty Magic Book will be donating 100% of all proceeds of orders placed between now and Friday.
Lastly, several people have asked if they can send money directly to Tim. If you’re interested in doing this, you can send donations to email@example.com.
*** TAM will be donating 20% of all magazine sales to help Tim and his family today, Wednesday, 11/20/2013 until next Thursday, 11/28/2013. Use checkout code: TIMBECK. Please spread the word!

So I screen-shotted some of my favorite pictures from Intagram to share. My intention is to share some great work and give the artists every bit of the credit! I’m doing it to showcase what I consider to be some really great work. I hope you will all agree. One thing I want to make clear is that I am not trying to promote the idea of “stealing.” All artists are inspired by other artists. There’s a difference between being inspired and flat-out stealing. I think it’s important to know the difference. Most images in tattooing have been taken from other sources. It’s always good to know the source if you can, and try to be inspired by art outside of tattooing… and also by life and nature… (more…)

This post will be much like the Fresno convention, short and sweet! The Fresno convention is one of those rare two-day shows that has all the talent and pageantry of a three-day convention, without the Friday blues that many of us are accustomed to. There are very few shows where you don’t hear at least one person say, “Friday was slow… I’ll kill it on Saturday.” So Fresno just cuts out the Friday complaints and gets right to it on Saturday… [Video on expanded page] (more…)
