Alright, this year's trip to Paradise Tattoo Gathering was super cool, and I also had a chance to go to Off The Map Tattoo and guest-spot the week of the show. After a long night we were off to the Paradise Tattoo Gathering, which is about two hours away. Once we got there, got set up, and met up with some friends, I headed down to do the opening discussion panel with some great guys, Bob Tyrrell, Jeff Gouge, Shawn Barber, Chris Dingwell and Durb. DS: I was amazed when I saw that book The Japan Tattoo, really the only book out on Japanese tattoos at the time, and then around 2004 when I met Mick from Zurich and saw how beautiful the Japanese tattoo is –and I saw also the shunga, Mick introduced me to the stuff I am doing now. DS: The Tigers is a group of very special people who like to travel and collect tattoos and make tattoos.
DS: He is a major collector, and kind of a freak, his name is Moby Dick but he was really proper, it was really okay. It gives me great pleasure today to be writing the continuation for one of Austin’s finest tattoo shops, Rock of Ages. AT: How many shops have you worked in prior to becoming a shop owner, and were they all good experiences?
AT: Is Austin your favorite place to tattoo or do you have fonder memories tattooing elsewhere? TH: I never wanted to own a shop, but I love Austin and I wanted to keep it going the way it was at Rock of Ages. Tony Hundahl of Rock of Ages Tattoo is a class act, a gentleman, a craftsman, an ambassador of the sport! Horitoshi: I grew up in the ghettos of Osaka and seeing men and women with tattoos was very commonplace during my childhood.
I was a student back then, and poor, so I would go get work done once every other month and as he was tattooing me I decided I wanted to do a formal apprenticeship with him after I graduated. I cleaned, made ink, bought supplies, ran errands, took care of any arrangements that arose, served tea and beer to guests, things like that. Horitoshi: Ukiyo-e masters, you know, Hokusai, Kuniyoshi -they are really good, so how can I create something better than them?
CM: Do you like the underwater creatures in particular, or did you do one and someone came in wanting something similar and it snowballed? Horitoshi: Whatever the customer wants but Japanese backpieces are tricky because they connect everything and must unite the bodysuit, the back is the main piece.
Horitoshi: Yes, ha-ha probably because I can speak English and I like to do guest spots and conventions abroad, so they know my work.
I wasn't sure what was going on or being said, so I sat there saying nothing and in the end and they put me on the next plane home. On the 5th of November the Amsterdam Tattoo Museum will open its doors to the general public.
His museum is the largest and first professional one to represent tattoo culture in the entire world. The personal (over thirty-year-old) collection by Henk Schiffmacher forms the backbone for the museums exhibits.
Having the right reference would be like having a better ink than the next guy, a crucial difference.
This book is nothing short of spectacular, something we have come to expect from publisher and tattoo great Miki Vialetto. This book is art, it's not simply a collection of tattoo designs, it has an aesthetic and conveys a mood. I am also really excited about the upcoming Bloodwork: Bodies book by Adrian Lee and Max Dolberg. As the publisher, I spent a lot of time translating and editing with the rest of the crew and we all felt lucky to be part of such a great work! Speaking of bringing back the old, I'm glad Tattoo Artist Magazine is putting the first five issues in book form. I've always felt that books were more permanent than magazines (nothing against mags) so I'm glad to see TAM doing the reprint. Seeing what we have on television is like watching a horror film in real life, and however unsettling it is for us to watch, it is only a sample of how terrifying it must be there.
Japan has influenced western tattooing for more than 100 years with its colorful woodblock prints which tell the stories of legend and folklore from centuries gone but not forgotten. The proceeds from the auction will ALL (100 percent) be  donated to the Red Cross fund for Japan.
RIHANNA has swapped the music notes tattoo on her right ankle for a new symbol of strength - an ancient Egyptian falcon. Skin art maestro Bang Bang etched the bird just above the pop star's right foot recently after she asked him to cover up a previous tattoo with an image of Egyptian queen Cleopatra. Rihanna tweeted the first shots of the new tattoo on Saturday (16Jun12) as she wrapped up a weekend with family and friends before boarding a flight to London, where she'll spend the rest of the summer. Actress CAREY MULLIGAN is sporting a new tattoo inspired by her role in upcoming drama SUFFRAGETTE. The Great Gatsby star plays women's rights campaigner Maud Watts in the film, which charts the fight for females to be given the right to vote.
She was so impressed by the story and the determination of those involved in the women's suffrage movement that she was bent on getting a permanent reminder of her time on-set inked onto her body.


Carey is now sporting a new tattoo on her wrist containing an inspirational quote from the movie - "Love that overcometh" - but she was left frustrated when her co-star Helena Bonham Carter and director Sarah Gavron refused to get matching inkings.
Carey has previously told how appearing in the film gave her a deeper appreciation of the need to stand up and campaign for important issues, and she was impressed when a dozen protesters stormed the red carpet at the London premiere of Suffragette this week (beg05Oct15).
The incident was staged to voice opposition to government plans to cut funding for domestic violence services, and Carey was proud the movie is helping to galvanise protesters. In this episode, Tattoo Age talks to the acclaimed tattooer and his mentor, Frank Romano, about his early days as a budding artist, when he would trace over drawings out of magazines to perfect his style. It's in small town USA where nobody locks their doors or cars, which seemed weird to me because back home in L.A.
I taught a seminar with my good friend Bob tyrrell and also tattooed somebody at the same time with him, man what a daydream-moment that was!
I won some awards, stayed up late drawing with good friends, saw tons of great art, and met some new artist that kick ass! The Tattoo Mania crew really knows how to put on a great convention and the Gomineko crew can’t wait for next year.
Tattoos here are regarded like they are everywhere – the youths have tattoos but the old people still think it’s from prison. So now we can talk about the pussy and dick tattoos… Do you think you could only tattoo shunga for the rest of your life and be happy?
Going back to the question about what I would like to do the rest of my life, I’d be happy doing small Japanese pieces, small traditional and scripts. When you see the photo it’s gonna be hilarious, because the tengu has a very special nose…. What are you doing nowadays that allows you to emit the sophisticated tattoo work that you produce? I’m curious how you honestly feel about what Alex and I have done trying to build our West Texas Tattoo Convention? I adore his work, particularly his underwater creatures and I think that, for an emerging artist, he's done a remarkable job creating a signature style for himself, while still adhering to the strict canon of wabori (Japanese traditional tattoo motifs). I'd been to onsen (public bath houses) with my father and seen his friend's bodysuits so there was never that "bad-boy" appeal for me. My apprenticeship lasted for two years and I have been tattooing a total of nine years now.
If someone asked for something like a fugu (puffer fish) backpiece I wouldn't do it cause it's too small of an image for that huge space and it would look strange if I blew it up.
I don't advertise, my shop is a traditional custom tebori shop and all my clients here are recommended by previous clients. The museum exhibits tattoos from all cultures and subcultures, from Prehistoric times up to today; tattoos from the army, gangs and jailbirds, sailors, hookers, circus artists and even those from high society and royal families are all on display. Hundreds of tattoo machines and hand tools, countless amounts of photographs, flash (tattoo examples), drawings, statues and even human tattooed flesh, are part of this unique collection. I flipped through it with Chad Koeplinger and Colin Baker in our hotel room and we were floored! Several years in the making, this dynamic duo has raised the bar on books with their last book on sleeves.
I figured they would do this eventually as those issues are long gone now but the demand is still there! TAM has so many important interviews and has grown so much into such an important tattoo reference tool that it would be a waste not to do this! Grime and I interviewed Marcus years ago for the Underway is the Only Way book we made and it's about time someone made a feature book on the legend that is Marcus Pacheco.
And through brilliant iconography and of course the ingeniously reduced, realistic, bold tattoos done by the Japanese masters. Therefore we are asking tattooers from around the globe to take part by donating a work of art for auction.

Thanks Gabe, Max, Ben and the rest of the Off The Map crew for a great show and awesome guest spot. I got a job in a tattoo shop in Luxembourg after doing a lot of drawings on my own, studying from tattoo magazines. The knowledge of the craft and the respect for tattoo history resonate throughout the shop with original artwork and vintage paintings. Some people go just on the weekend and work during the week but I'd planned ahead and saved money so I could focus entirely on my apprenticeship.
I know some amazing machine-only tattooers whose pieces heal beautifully, and I've seen some tattoos done by hand that were quite rough.
I was a bicycle flyer guy, you know those illegal sticky flyers you find downtown that advertise erotic massage or girls for hire and just have a pic and a phone number? The museum has an information center and a library which holds the world’s largest archive of tattoo books. Through work- learning programs for those whom are fundamentally separated from the working community the Amsterdam Tattoo Museum offers these people a chance to participate and contribute to the museum.


While some people bemoan this, (and there certainly are drawbacks) I'm here at the London tattoo convention looking at one of the positive aspects of information sharing: the new Spider Murphy's book! He wears a full bodysuit, puts on the best conventions, publishes great magazines and epic books. And as with all Miki Vialetto books, it is a beautifully made hardcover with nice paper, but like his other books, it is a limited run so don't sleep on it!
Filled with original back piece designs by Horitomo, tons of reference drawings, and pages of text about the god, this book will really educate those interested in learning more about Japanese tattooing and Buddhism.
Without his efforts as a publisher, tattooing would be years behind and I most certainly would not be tattooing or publishing. Few people can say they've actually changed tattooing and Marcus is definitely one of them.
Most of us go through life half asleep, concerned with vacation time and whether or not we can afford the newest and best of things. The painting will be open for viewing on this website, Along with information about each artist. Your work should be done in the standard flash format (11 x 14-ish, close enough is close enough for me). By clicking on the thumbnail of the painting you are interested in you will go automatically to the corresponding eBay page. The kid was so excited, he ran off to enter Tattoo of the Day, and the dude never came back! I’ll even do a tribal if the customer really wants it because at the end of the day I’m a tattooer, I’m not a little artist who runs around doing only custom, I’m a tattooer. I go to Zurich every two months or so, whenever Mick needs me, I like going to Canada… I have good friends all over.
There is a wonderful playfulness to his illustrations, which mirror Horitoshi's own personality and it is this levity that make his pieces so appealing and unique.
It wasn't until I attended the 1999 Tokyo tattoo convention and saw tattoo work from the likes of Filip Leu, Luke Atkinson and Mick from Zurich that I became enthralled. I find with tebori I can make my black work really solid and clean, and in the case of my tattoos, the parts tattooed by hand heal a lot quicker.
I haven't been tattooing that long, but book collecting was, and is, something all my mentors and role models encouraged. San Francisco in the 90s was a special time and Marcus was one of many who took risks and made a huge impact. Imagine these things being swept away from you and not knowing if your family members are alive. I too have a lot of responsibilities, running a shop and tattooing all day, and a wife and two children takes all my energy; but this is a one time thing.
There are many good artists but you would see one or two tattoos that were good in a magazine, so what I did; I cut them out and collected them in a book! To be honest I like doing filler tattoos around other stuff the best unless I am working in Luxembourg. I use a machine for that now, because it is faster, but I am still not 100 percent comfortable with machines.
I'd been to the States 12 or 13 times over a five-year period without the necessary paperwork and that time they flagged me, found a couple of business cards for tattoo and bike shops and started making phone calls. And there is a tattoo shop that offers guest tattoo artists from all corners of the world to show off their skills. It was about study and reference, doing your homework to make the best tattoo drawing you could! At first, I thought this would be a book of really good "flash," a collection of painted sheets but I think Spider Murphy's crew has achieved something much higher. Their newest book is about Filipino tattooer Rosie Camanga and features tons of his designs.
They gave me a machine, showed me how to build it up with a tube and a needle and said, “Hey you have to run the machine if you go in the skin” and that was all they told me. I like doing conventions and guest spots and doing one shot tattoos I can finish that day so I can always travel to new destinations and don’t have to return anywhere to finish tattoos.
I don’t really like to do portraits though because I think there are other people who do it amazingly. I love Camanga's work, it's a bit rough in line as well as grammar and this is what makes it so good! After you have survived you try to pick up the pieces and with the help of others you start anew. The people here I think lack discipline to finish pieces, they don’t have the discipline to finish backpieces, they get tired of the pain, maybe they don’t have the money anymore, maybe they don’t give a fuck anymore and it’s no longer important but they start them and they don’t finish.
He’s making money.” I did a lot of walk-ins then, I did a fucking lot of tribal, which was popular then, that and lower back tattoos.
