A great lil video from right here in the Bay: Vanessa Hellmann's "Think Ink San Francisco" features tattooers and tattooed alike. Mixing interviews with her buddies down at Seventh Son with tattooed people of many different ages and professions, Hellmann's film tracks how San Francisco is leading the way for tattoo's acceptance into mainstream culture.

All year long, Juxtapoz is celebrating its 20th Anniversary by showcasing the pivotal figures in contemporary art over the past two decades. Some artists are blue chip, some are underground heroes, others are behind-the-scenes legends. This month, we honor one of the great artists from Los Angeles during our existence, Alexis Ross, who has been monumental in various landmark exhibitions including "Street Market" at Art In the Streets. From working with ESPO, TWIST, and REAS, or working on his own paintings, Ross' story is one of history, frankness, and colorful nostalgia.
