This is my first attempt at shooting video with a SLR camera, I was basically just hanging out at Frith Street and started shooting some random shots of Jordan drawing, then thought it would be a perfect chance to play with the video settings on my new camera. I ended up staying for the duration of the whole tattoo he was drawing. After a little while of getting used to the settings and the focusing i found it quite enjoyable, its something ive wanted to try for a while and now ive got a taste for it, expect more of this Vlogs. Thanks to Jordan and the Guys at FST.
The whole video was shot on a Canon 5D mark II with a Canon 24-70 2.8 lens, edited with Imovie.

I am going to touch base on the subject. All you folks out there allowing your “friends” to “tattoo” you with dodgy equipment and NO EXPERIENCE or PROPER TRAINING need to wake up… along with the folks that are scarring you up! You think they are doing you a favor because they are giving you a shitty tattoo or hepatitis? You think they have an autoclave? Or spray down the area and materials after tattoo with Trigene? Or pay (like I do) for biohazard pick-up every week? Fuck no… They probably have four needles that came with the kit they bought online… What a treat…

It’s hard to know where to start here seeing the state of things… So just going to play it by ear and have a bit of a rant while stating proper facts on things happening to our craft… not industry. An “industry” is a factory in China making and selling shitty equipment to sell on eBay…
