Alright, sure, I admit it: I do like to take shots at scratchers now and then on the blog because quite frankly, they deserve it.  Scratchers are scum.  There, I’ve said it.  And I know that it’s at least arguable that some great, currently established tattooists started off as scratchers, but let’s be serious here – there’s no real reason to be a scratcher.  Back in the day when no one knew how to be in contact with anyone else, and the tattoo world was kind of an invite only scene where crotchety old Yoda-esque tattooists had to be sought out and learned from in some far away mountain range or dingy basement, sure, it was semi-understandable why some kid from Shitstain, Idaho would just fiddle around with homemade equipment at friend’s parties.  But those days are gone and the information age is upon us.  You can’t swing a dead cat anymore without hitting someone who runs a tattoo studio.

10-scott-campbell-jls-birdy1

Yet despite, my disdain for scratchers, I believe that there is a DIY tattoo culture that should be recognised and which has a history practically as lengthy as tattoo itself.  I’m talking about prison tattoos.  No matter where you go in the world, there are prisons and in those prisons are people who have tattoos that were not done by Kat Von D or Tim Hendricks.  These tattoos were done by other inmates, with equipment that somewhere along the line typically included human urine.

Tattoo artist extraordinaire Scott Campbell is someone who understands the culture of prison tattoo.  Some time after a six-week stint in a maximum security prison in which he made tattoo machines, met prisoners and tattooed them, Campbell created water colour paintings of the tattoo machines that he built while in the Mexican prison.  The works were unveiled at a recent solo art exhibit in Los Angeles titled “Things Get Better“.  The art itself is very cool, but Campbell is also one of those highly creative individuals who embraces all aspects of tattoo culture, seeing the art within it all.  I guess it goes to show that there can always be a good side to dodgier aspects of the culture – that art thrives in the most unlikeliest of places.

Still, it takes a great artist to uncover it, so don’t expect me to be singing the praises of scratchers any time soon.  For now though, Campbell’s work is definitely setting a new standard – one that I certainly am totally in favour of.

Discount Tattoo Removal in Arizona

Laser tattoo removal is one of the fastest, most effective ways to remove your unwanted tattoo. Megan Fox, Lea Michele, and Miley Cyrus are all Hollywood celebrities who’ve had laser tattoo removal for one tattoo or another. But why choose laser versus the creams?

For one, the cosmetic laser used in tattoo removal is able to penetrate deep into your layers of skin without actually harming your skin. The beam only targets the pigment of your tattoo, and the cosmetic laser energy is absorbed by the pigment. Then, the ink is broken up into microscopic, fractionalized pieces and flushed out through the body’s lymphatic system. Over a series of treatments, your tattoo fades and disappears!

Another reason more people prefer laser tattoo removal treatments is because the treatment takes less than fifteen minutes to perform, on the average five. You’re in and out in a hot second!

Finally, laser tattoo removal treatments are affordable, which means you can remove that much regretted tattoo without breaking your bank or your budget!

Without a doubt, one of the things that I love the most about tattoo and the culture of tattoo is its tolerance for all people, from all walks of life.  Black, white, male, female, gay, straight – you name it, everyone is represented to some degree.  It’s a really inclusive environment that always holds true to the concept of whatever you like – it’s your business and your body.  Brilliant.

In keeping with that lovely aspect of tattoo culture, I’d thought I’d include an interview done by the fine folks at Gay Star News with tattoo artist extraordinaire, Louis Molloy.  The man responsible for 85% of football superstar David Beckham’s tattoos dishes out the goods on what makes a good tattoo, his own tattoos and a few other little odds and ends in this short but sweet interview..

top-5-tattoos-louis-molloy_flash.

Louis Molloy has been working as a tattoo artist for over three decades, inking some of the world’s most famous people, including soccer star David Beckham and British Olympic and Tour de France champion cyclist Bradley Wiggins.

He told us what trends are cool, why you shouldn’t always follow in celebrity’s footsteps and some tattoos you should never get.

How did you get started as a tattoo artist?

A common question that is difficult for me to answer. I got into tattooing properly when I was 14 and opened my studio when I was 18 and that was in 1981.

Do you ever tattoo yourself?

I have tattooed myself and I think all tattoo artists do it at some point, but it is very difficult to do.

How many tattoos do you have?

I have two full sleeves and my entire chest is tattooed. I also have some work on my legs that I did myself many years ago.

What process do you normally follow with a client? Do most people come to you with a clear idea of what they want or do they look to you to design something for them?

Most people come with a concept from which the design is then worked up but some people have no idea except that they want to be tattooed. These are nightmare clients!

Do you ever have to persuade people that the tattoo that they’ve got their heart set on may not actually be a good choice?

If I don’t agree with a client’s choice or think they are making a mistake, I will point this out and sometimes even refuse to do the work. Partners’ names are the classic example of a tattoo you shouldn’t get, for obvious reasons.

Have you ever refused to create a tattoo that someone has asked you to do?

Yes, often.

What makes a great tattoo?

Difficult to answer as it’s in the eye of the beholder but the lines should be crisp and neat, shading finely graduated and colors should be bright and even.

What are some of the most common mistakes people make when getting a tattoo?

Biggest mistake most people make is that they assume all tattooists are equal and they are definitely not. For every good tattooist there are 10 bad ones so do your homework beforehand.

The other classic mistake is not properly looking after a tattoo once you have it. I always recommend clients apply Forever Ink Balm to help protect and recover newly tattooed skin and longer term that they use Forever Ink Shield, an everyday moisturizer with an SPF 45 and a unique ink lock technology to keep tattoos looking vibrant. Nothing is worse than a faded, sun-damaged tattoo – and I have seen plenty of them.

What are some of the current trends we’re seeing in the types of tattoos people are getting?

Religious inspired imagery is very popular at the moment.

Why do people want tattoos?

Many, many answers to this but I think its mostly as a personal way of individualizing one’s self.

Is getting a tattoo painful? Are there parts of the body that are more painful than others?

All tattoos hurt but it is a manageable pain. Boney areas will hut most!

beckham-roses-tattoo-designs

Are there any tattoo trends or styles that are specific to gay men or lesbians?

No. Tattooing is one of the only industries where gender and sexuality cross all boundaries and equality reigns.

You’ve tattooed David Beckham – which of his tattoos are you responsible for?

I have done around 85% of David’s tattoos.

Did Beckham know what he wanted or were you able to have some input into the final creation?

I worked to verbal briefs given to me from him.

Does working on celebrities add to the pressure of creating the tattoo? If you make a mistake the world will be judging it?

Celeb or not, all people are equal in my studio. I am not fazed by celebrity however I recently tattooed Sir Bradley Wiggins and I was excited to work on him as I am a keen cyclist myself but I was not nervous.

Do the tattoos celebrities get influence the types of tattoos that the rest of us aspire to?

The best thing to come from celebs being tattooed is the fact they have helped tattooing become more socially acceptable.

There are many celebs who have influenced trends, but not all good! Cheryl Cole had a tattoo done on her hand a few years ago and this inspired many copycats and I think there will be many regrets with that one.

If there’s one issue that I keep returning to again and again on Tattoo Blog, it’s the issue of regulation.  It’s a bit of a thorny issue for many and opinions tend to run deep on both sides of the coin.  I’ve spoken to tattooists who feel that to regulate tattoo is to introduce a bunch of overly bureaucratic red tape that will be consistently reinforced by  government employees who have zero understanding or familiarity with what tattooists actually do.  The fear here is that a level playing field will not necessarily aid tattoo, but debilitate more established artists, forcing them to abandon techniques that while not necessarily unsanitary, won’t pass the outdated and narrow frames of reference that government intervention will bring.  What this will then ostensibly do is force individual time honoured and tested techniques to be abandoned in favour of an across the board standard, effectively killing years of trial and error technical efforts on the part of tattooists.  In essence, the skills and methods that made a tattooist who he or she currently is could be summarily wiped out, placing them under the jurisdiction of the same methods used by one and all.

Not having worked in the tattoo industry myself, I can still relate somewhat to this situation due to my time spent working in various kitchens.  Health inspectors offer a valuable service, but their methods and demands are all too often ridiculously removed from the realities of everyday life in a professional kitchen.  They tend to be more of a burden than an aid in the long run.  That’s not to say that I wish to see health and safety standards ignored in either the tattoo studio or the kitchen, but some standards are capable of doing more harm than good.

regulate

On the other hand, the ease with which tattoo equipment can purchased online has had a profound impact on the rise of scratchers.  Whatever negative elements that regulation might bring, I firmly believe that no at all regulation is worse for the simple fact that without regulation, scratchers have an advantage.  That advantage damages the reputability of tattooists who have worked very hard to get to where they are today.  For this reason, I’m glad to see that Pennsylvania is now making concrete steps toward regulation of their tattoo industry.  Yes, the government has no real clue what tattooists do, but if this is truly a concern amongst tattooists, then they should be actively working to lobby for realistic statutes which deal with health concerns in a knowledgeable way.  If for some reason this is not possible, then tattooists will simply need to find new ways under regulation to forge ahead and differentiate their process from others.

Personally, I don’t watch a lot of TV.  My reasons are simple: 99.9% of it is utter crap.  I don’t care what junk you have in your garage that’s worth money, I don’t care about watching bounty hunters looking for dudes, I don’t care about watching rich housewives gripe about bullshit.  So all that being said, it’s safe to say that I don’t really keep up with what’s current on the two or three TV channels that actually show programmes rather than infomercials and other such rubbish.  Bear with me then, if you’ve heard of the programme that I’ve included in today’s post, but it struck me as a sort of interesting concept for a TV series…

Lars Krutak is a so-called “tattoo anthropologist” who travels around the world, looking for completely unique and culturally significant methods of tattoo.  The programme itself is called Tattoo Hunter, and I’m sure that many of you have seen it before, but as I said, it’s new to me.  If you haven’t seen it before, check it out.  This episode is quite interesting as Krutak heads to Hawaii to gain the respect of the Watermen of Waiʻanae on the island of Oahu.  Tattoo has a very lengthy history in these parts and this episode is great insight into what it takes in order to be worthy of such a significant work of art and cultural identity.

Enjoy!

Fast Tattoo Removal Dallas Locations!

Did you know laser tattoo removal increased 32% in 2012? Laser tattoo removal has become a popular method for removing unwanted tattoos, since it uses a different method than creams or gels. Miley Cyrus, Lea Michele, and Megan Fox have all received laser tattoo removal treatments, and many more are loving the results!

For all your fast and effective laser tattoo removal needs in Dallas, consider NLI Med Spa. They are the leader in the medical aesthetic industry and offer amazing prices for laser tattoo removal treatments.

How Laser Tattoo Removal Works

Laser tattoo removal technology works by using advanced Q-switched lasers. These cosmetic lasers are capable of targeting only the tattoo ink, not the client’s skin. This assures a safe and effective treatment. When the cosmetic Q-switched laser is fired within the skin, it targets the tattoo ink and is absorbed by the pigment of the ink. From there, the energy from the cosmetic laser is able to break the ink down into microscopic, fractionalized pieces that are then safely flushed out through the body’s lymphatic system. The end results provide flawless, tattoo-free skin!

Pre & Post Care

Before treatment:

  • Shave (if necessary) and clean area
  • Avoid sun exposure 2 weeks in advance
  • Avoid blood thinning medication

After treatment:

  • Avoid sun exposure
  • Avoid hot showers, jacuzzis, saunas
  • Apply gentle ice pack if needed and keep area clean

Did you know?

There is less probability for infection with Laser Liposuction because a smaller incision is required for the procedure. Also blood loss, a common complication with traditional liposuction, is minimal since the procedure is more accurate at targeting fat, and, therefore, does less damage to surrounding blood vessels. Any blood that does leak from a damaged vessel will evaporate from the heat of the laser.
