Featured Tattoo Shop: Tattoo City, San Francisco

Juxtapoz // Saturday, June 02, 2012
Ed Hardy's original shop, Tattoo City (now in their 3rd location) is located right in the heart of San Francisco's North Beach. A classic and iconic shop, which opened in 1974 in a former candy store, is a prime example of how far getting inked has come. Kahlil Rintye, Mary Joy, Jen Lee, Doug Hardy and Ed Hardy himself (still tattooing Fri-Mon) all have amazing freehand drawing capabilities and specialize in the pace-setting quality work that Ed's shops have always been known for.

The Expanse of a Fact: Noah Doely @ Steve Turner Contemporary, LA

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 01, 2012
Noah Doely's ambrotype and tintype photographs are full fiction and illusion. Harkening back to a time at the emergence of photography, Doely presents characters that are in a pursuit of knowledge, making, and understanding, a search that belongs just as much to the artist as it does to these fictional personalities. His exhibition, The Expanse of the Fact, opens tonight, June 1, at Steve Turner Contemporary in Los Angeles.

Heading Down South: Juxtapoz @ Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3)

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 01, 2012
Around this time of year an odd thing happens, my inbox starts swelling up with requests for meetings, my thumbs begin going into cross training mode, and my eyes become acutely tuned towards women in scantly clad outfits. These may seem like unrelated personal issues to some, but to me they are a sign from the universe that the world's largest video game conference is approaching. The annual Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3 as it has been lovingly deemed, is slowly becoming a annual tradition here at Juxtapoz . . .

Nina Pandolfo "Spice Angels" @ Lazarides, London

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 01, 2012
We were looking forward to this exhibition at Lazarides Gallery in London: Brazilian artist Nina Pandolfo's Spice Angels. Bright, bold, playful, Pandolfo has been on our radar for quite some time, a great mix of Japanese style with a Brazilian twist, a full set of characters that seem recognizable at first glance. The show opened last night in London...
