“I have been working on a new body of work for a solo show in San Francisco at The Shooting Gallery,” writes Shawn Barber. “I started painting tattooed artists in 2005, obsessively documenting the men and women that define contemporary American tattoo art.”

Tattoos can provide a unique way of expressing oneself, as using your own skin as a canvas is one of the most permanent ways to display art. However, make sure your tattoo artist can spell before you go under the needle.

Hurley resident artist, Jason Maloney (Juxtapoz #70) is at it again. This time he paid a visit to his tattoo artist friend, Dan Smith of Kat Von D's High Voltage Tattoo in Hollywood. Dan takes us through the entire process of getting a tattoo and in this case, Jason is the canvas. Check out Jason getting his signature drunken elephant, 'Tippsy' (which is also available on a Juxtapoz tee) tattooed on his stomach. Ouch.

There's more to getting inked than you think. The art of Japanese tattoos will be the hot topic at San Francisco’s Asian Art Museum's Matcha event on Thursday, October 2, 2008. Takahiro Kitamura – “Horitaka” apprentice to the revered master Horiyoshi III - is an author, prolific tattoo artist, and owner of State of Grace. He’ll deliver a talk on the time-honored art of Japanese tattoos, complete with live demonstrations of employing both traditional (no electric needles!) and modern techniques. Joining Horitaka's diverse, talented crew of tattooists are special guests from Japan: Shige, a powerhouse tat artist who's showcased all over the world; Mutsuo, of Three Tides Tattoo (Juxtapoz #84;) and Kazunobu Nagashima, a client of Shige who will proudly display his backpiece, which won a 2007 Milano Tattoo Convention award. Sweet. Details on Matcha at asianart.org/ matcha08october
