Jose Perez Jr's Living Dead

Tattoo // Monday, June 04, 2012
With all of the bath salts going around these days, it becomes increasingly difficult to distinguish a real face eating zombie from a phony, or just some crazy kid all hopped up on Scooby Do devouring your neighborhood homeless- Christ. Gorgeously grotesque living dead portrait from Dark Water Tattoo's Jose Perez Jr. out in the South side of Chicago. Breakfast is served.

Chris Cleen Interview

Tattoo // Monday, June 04, 2012
A short documentary on tattoo artist and painter Cris Cleen- an incredible artist working out at Saved Tattoo in Brooklyn, New York. He's been at it, tattooing, for the past 9 years and creates incredible 'turn of the century', American/European, traditional work- both in his paintings and in his tattoos. I really admire the simplicity and vintage appeal in everything he puts out.

Incredible work from the artists over at Black 13 Tattoo Parlor in Nashville, like this amazing top of the hand from Tye Harris.  Black 13 features the art of Josh Woods, Steve Martin, Timmy B, Ryan Thomas, Tye Harris, Amanda Leadman, and Marty “Riet” McEwen- all amazing colorists and renderers.  Black 13 is located in Nashville Tennessee’s historic Cummins Station and hey- they even use Eternal Ink which is organic and vegan, and kinda makes me want a steak.

Ink Fetish Fridays

Tattoo // Friday, June 01, 2012
Our NEW weekly tribute, praising all of the gorgeously inked women out there, and the tattooers that made it all possible. If it wasn't for their smooth, silky skin and perfectly formed figures, tattoos could never look so damn good. Don't get me wrong, I love the days of traditional ink covering the gaps between weary muscles, body hair and sea salt, but somehow it just isn't the same... LOVE.
