The Ink Toupee

With all of the technological leaps, medical strides and social progress that we have made in the last few decades it is no surprise that the tattoo industry is evolving in tow.  

Hair and There

This is 100% strictly an opinion piece and I will state upfront that I have a HUGE aversion to body hair. I love facial hair of all kinds on men but the rest of the body, not so much! This blog will be from this very biased opinion. 

Eco Tattoo Removal

Whatever Happened To...? Now you may all recognise this phrase from mainstream television, a glimpse into the current lives of stars and starlets of past. Today I play this game, or rather ask the questions of an evolution in the tattoo industry from back in 2008. 

The Creepy & Cool Of Tattoo Inventions

Of everything that I have written to date regarding tattoos, this article has been the absolute most fascinating for me. I was Wowed by the Tattoo Apps, and I am most definitely amazed by all of the artists and bands that I have met and spoken with but this is something different all together.  

So You Want To Play Truant With The Big Boys?

THEN GET ON YA BIKE, SONNY! Heavy metal rockers in Lycra? Maybe! But Lycra bike pants? WTF!! But yes, there is a place where you can see some of the greatest heavy metallers in the world, dressed in the stretchy stuff, and tell them to “get on their bike” WITHOUT getting smashed in the gob!  

The Roar Of The Dragon Is More Than Skin Deep

Tattooing has been practiced for centuries in many cultures and as long as there has been tattooing, there have been dragon tattoos. Since the very first time that man made his mark by hand-tapping pigment into the skin using sharpened animal bones, mythical creatures have been a popular choice. But the reason for that choice varies from culture to culture, and from century to century.  

Grim Reaper

Throughout time, people have consistently strived to outclass one another in some particular fashion or form. Whether it stems from genetics or pure disposition, people have a general nature to feel superior. It is in our DNA.  

Sugar Skull Make-up Tutorial

I would like to make a disclaimer now and say I am not a visual artist. Nor do I have the patience to sit there and redo my make-up over and over again. If you want the perfect sugar skull make-up you will need practice. The make-up in this tutorial took me over two hours to do. 

Body Mods Gone Wrong

Warning: Some images may be distressing for some readers. 

Tattooing - In Slow Motion

Have you ever wondered what tattooing would look like in slow motion as Steel and Ink collide to create some beautiful Art? 

You Get What You Pay For

In many cases, and taking into consideration that many brand names are produced in the same factories as Wal-Mart and Target are, you can find better bang for your buck. Not with tattoos.  

Eye of the Beholder - Eye Tattoos

Extremism shows in every walk of life - Compulsive gamblers, collectors, daredevils, risk takers...some of these people are some of the most interesting and diverse people you would ever want to meet. Although many of us shake our heads to the nature of the extreme desires, how can you understand if you do to share the passion, we all of some degree of extremism in our nature. 

It's Not All in Name - Alternatives to the Name Tattoo

As it seems this is the first "Rule" of tattoo, or perhaps it is simply the advice that you will hear most often from people..."NEVER GET A PERSONS NAME TATTOOED ON YOUR BODY". 

Revel In Your Rite Of Passage - Respect The Ink

I don't feel that our society is extremely rich in for-thought or planning. Houses go up in a matter of months, children are having babies, divorce is growing exponentially...there seems to be no consequence to anything anymore, especially not some of the most important decisions in our lives.  

Barely Legal

This blog applies to my belief on many subjects but particularly that of tattoos. Wait until you are at least 18.  

The Tattoo Oscars

It is finally happening! In 2015, tattoo culture will hit a new and very prominent milestone, the Tattoo Oscars! Little has been publicized as to the when and where but word is that it will follow a loosely similar format to the original Oscars, with a much more colorful venue and host...  

The New Wave of "Cover Up Tattoos"

I would like to think of it as more of a celebration tattoo, but in essence this new age of ink is to cover the scars left from Mastectomy.  

The Tattoo Hunter - Dr Lars Krutak

What do tattoos and anthropology have in common? If you are the average, there isn't too much of a connection there. However, if you are anthropologist Dr.Lars Krutak, the relation between the two is fascinating. Tattoo hunting has become synonymous with the name Dr. Lars Krutak, and follows a plethora of research and field studies by this genius Anthropologist.  

The Black Henna Nightmare

Body art is an important way in which people show the world who they are. For most people in 2014, tattooing is the most popular way of making something permanent, whether it’s your Mum, child’s birthday or a meaningful design that’s caught your eye -- inking up in the way millions go every year, with one in five US Citizens having followed suit. But not for some.
