I’m always looking to hear about different scenes in different cities.  I tend to travel a lot and while I travel, I’m always on the look out for new and different tattoo studios and if I can, to meet new and different artists.  I’m really hoping that this year I’ll be able to get to a very specific – and as of right now – secret location in order to get tattooed by a tattooist whom I have a lot of respect for.  I’m keeping my fingers crossed and seeing how this year pans out.

Anyway, as I was saying, I love to learn about different scenes, yeah.  Some of you might cringe over the use of the words “tattoo scene”, but I don’t give a rat’s ass if you do.  Cities have scenes, like it or not.  If I go and check out the tattoo studios in London, England, it’s going to be a completely different experience from checking out the studios in L.A. or Seoul.  Different people, different styles, different attitudes, different ink.  That my friends, is a scene.

Now, maybe I’m naive and uninformed on what’s going on in America, but according to this article in The Maine Sunday Telegram, Maine is actually quite the little tattoo spot.  I’m going to be honest and say that until now, I’d never even considered Maine as a place where there could be a lot going on in terms of tattoo.  But I guess I was wrong.  One of the great things about Maine’s tattoo scene is that all the studios are licensed and regulated.  This is always a touchy subject, but I happen to be all for regulation.  At present time the officials in charge of the inspections are only there to concern themselves with hygiene, but hopefully as time goes on these jobs will be filled by people who are really invested in the tattoo industry and who appreciated it for the art form that it is.

At any rate, I recommend checking out the article on Maine and discovers some of the interesting facts about the place and its relationship with tattoo.  It’s particularly cool that such a high percentage of tattooists in Maine are women.  It’s nice to see a variety of genders and races within any particular scene.  Keep up the good work, Maine and I hope to get down and see you all one day soon.

Right, okay, back once again to the topic of bad tattoos.  I’m not sure why I’ve been thinking about this lately, but fortunately, there is no shortage of news out there on exactly this topic.  The most recent example of a bad tattoo is courtesy of 22-year-old Brit John Forsyth.  So enamoured with the top 40 hit ‘Wake Me Up’ by Swedish pop star Avicii, he decided that it would be a great idea to get the lyrics to said song tattooed down his side.  According to Forsyth, the lyrics tell the story of his life.  Fair enough, maybe they do.  If it makes the guy happy, then great.  The sad truth of the matter is that the lyrics to ‘Wake Me Up’ are standard generic pop lyrics.  They undoubtedly tell the story of Forsyth’s life just as they do a billion other people.  There’s no real story here, it’s just a collection of vague platitudes that seem to really speak to you when you’re Forsyth’s age.  And that’s fine, but I mean at age 22 you haven’t really done anything.  So to take up the entire right side of your body with the story of your life is kind of a joke.  Again, it’s his body, I just wouldn’t recommend this sort of tattoo to anyone.

Incase you’re curious, here’s what John has to say about the tattoo and his reasons for getting it.

What prompted you to get a tattoo this large? Were you drunk when you had it done?

It was just a decision I made, I was sober when I had it done. I thought about it for a few weeks.

Do you have a girlfriend? What does she think about it?

I don’t have a girlfriend at the minute, but all the girls I know they all like it. They all think it’s sick.

BRzKBztCIAE3IWS-1

Did it hurt a lot getting it done?

Yeah, most painful tattoo I’ve had. It took four and a half hours, all in one sitting.

What responses are you getting? Do you have any Twitter haters?

 I’ve had about over a thousand retweets. But yeah, I’ve gotten messages from people saying: It’s shit, eat shit and all that. Saying you’re gonna regret it. But I don’t care what they think, because I’m not going to regret it. It’s my choice.

What would you say to Avicii if you met him? Would you show him the tattoo?

Obviously I’d show him. I’d probably ask him if I could have a picture with him. Maybe offer a beer. Just be like I am with anyone I first met when I’m doing my job. How’s it going, what’s your name and all that. Well, obviously I know his name…

Someone on Twitter said some words are misspelled. Is that the case?

Yeah, actually there are a couple of words that are misspelled. But I’m going to get that sorted out. It’s cause it was such a big piece. In “caught” it hasn’t got the line going through the “t”. It’s a five minute job.

Any wise words for the people out there?

Everyone should just do what they want. Live life to the most every day. Literally I just do what I want everyday. I don’t think about what could happen in ten years time, because I don’t know if I’ll be here. I live life to the max. Most nights of the week I go out and get completely off my ass. It’s part of the job. Everyone that works here gets drunk every night. It’s a lifestyle.

And there you have it.  If you’ve never heard the song in question, check it out below.

Oh and FYI, John?  Getting drunk every night isn’t “a lifestyle”.  It’s called being 22.

Local Tattoo Removal Training in AZ

In the last decade, the demand of cosmetic lasers has increased. Whether it be wrinkles, acne, hair removal, or tattoos, people are going crazy to try these new, revolutionary treatments that promise them effective and fast results.

Tattoo removal is unique because it uses cosmetic energy and heat to specifically target the tattoo’s ink within the skin. That energy then breaks the ink’s pigment into microscopic, fractionalized pieces that are flushed out through the body’s lymphatic system. The results provides your clients with tattoo-free, undamaged skin.

In most states you only need a high school diploma or GED in order to receive tattoo removal training. That’s the case in Arizona, which is why we recommend National Laser Institute if you’re interested in adding laser tattoo removal to your area of expertise. Tattoo removal training courses at NLI include both hands-on training as well as classroom lectures from experts in the industry. Plus, students have a chance to actually work on tattooed clients using state-of-the-art laser technology within a luxury medical spa setting in order to become more familiar with our cosmetic lasers.

Tattoo Removal Training Objectives

  • Esthetic overview
  • Client selection
  • Tissue interaction
  • Pre and post care
  • Laser techniques
  • Hands-on training

National Laser Institute

National Laser Institute is the leader in the medical esthetics industry and has earned many outstanding reviews. They are also recognized as the Harvard of laser schools across the nation and were the first to pioneer the first laser training curriculum that meets regulations and educational standards.

The Worst of the Worst

Normally when it comes to other people’s tattoos, I don’t really have too many objections.  I mean, if you really want to go out and get tattooed with something that myself or other people might think is totally ridiculous and/or horrible, more power to you.  Lately however, I find myself maybe getting more cynical.  Or am I?  I don’t know.

keyboard-cat-for-life-tattoo

To be fair, I’ve always had a problem with people getting tattoos out of a desire or need to be trendy.  That much is well documented on this site for anyone who cares to go back through the archived posts.  I don’t care what your TV or Justin Bieber tells you, tattoos are not trends and should never be treated as such.  Tattoos are permanent and certainly shouldn’t have anything to do with flash in the pan aesthetics.  So yeah, I  tend to get my feathers slightly ruffled when I see people treating them as such.

I guess then, it’s for this reason that I don’t really have that much of a problem blogging about the worst types of tattoos.  Again – who am I to say what’s a bad tattoo, let alone the worst tattoo?  Well, no one really.  I just think that there is common sense and then there is everything else.  If a tattoo truly means something to you (as I believe it should), and I come down on it or dismiss it, you’re well within your right to call me a (for lack of a better word), dick.  However, if your tattoo is dumb because you were dumb when you got it – and by dumb I mean blinded by the hilarity or coolness of a particular trend at that particular time and place – then it’s open season on the razzing as far as I’m concerned.

Be warned, then.  Bad types of tattoos often have very little excuse for them and they are all too often very easy to spot.  Perhaps this list will help you to understand that a little bit better.  Although I’m sure you understand it just fine anyway.  Right?  Here’s hoping.

Etiquette (and then some)

It’s never too late to add some tips to the ongoing process of tattoo studio etiquette.  As the saying goes, “good manners cost nothing”.  Too true.  No one wants to deal with a dick who just breezes in and expects the world, running roughshod over everyone and everything in his/her way.  That’s exactly why the folks at The Modified World in Ann Arbor, Michigan put this short little video segment together.  No more excuses, people.  There’s plenty of relevant info here to keep you in any tattoo artist/piercer’s good books.  One little niggle that I do have with the video, however, is that I don’t believe that it’s necessary to tip tattooists.

This is probably going to piss a lot of people off.  The fact of the matter is that tattoo artists are just that – artists.  Waiters get tips.  Porters get tips.  Hot dog vendors get tips.  Artists don’t get tips.  Artists get paid (usually).  In my mind, many different skill sets fall under the umbrella of artist: actors, filmmakers, painters, sculptors, fashion designers, writers, tattooists, etc.  I’m a writer.  When I write an article or a short story or for that matter, a film, I get paid.  There are no tips for doing what I’ve done, nor do I expect to be tipped.  I created something from nothing, sold it and got paid.  And there were many, many, many years where I didn’t even get paid for my work.  Tattooists are handsomely rewarded for their artistic process.  If you’re a tattooist and you want to get tipped for your work, become a waiter.  Or, better yet, charge more for your work in order to cover the 10-20% extra that you feel you need for doing your job.

That’s all I want to say about that.

Hey, get a tattoo wherever you want on your body, I don’t care.  Every once in a while though, someone comes along who gets a tattoo that kind of just makes me roll my eyes.  As you’ll see in the below video, some people are probably more interested in the attention that getting a tattoo in a certain place brings them, than anything else.  But again, what do I care, right?  Take a look at the video below.  Oh yeah, it might kind of be NSFW.  The one good thing about getting a tattoo like this however, is that very few people will ever see it should you one day regret it.  Then again, in this girl’s case, who knows.

I must say, so many gimmicky tattoo trends out there.  Some just want to be trends and never really get the momentum going to be full fledged, others become trends for reasons that defy logic.  The latest attempt at trendy is the so-called digital tattoo.  You can read more about it here if you’re interested, but personally, judging by what I’ve seen in this sample video, I’m less than impressed with the entire concept.  What do you think?

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.
