Behind the sleeve with Russ Abbott

January 14th, 2014 by Kevin -

       

This sleeve below was a work in progress for over a year. I was lucky enough to see the piece take place, and watch progress month by month. Even though I got to see it first hand, the final product was still jaw dropping. We caught up with Russ Abbott and asked him a few questions about the project, large tattoo projects in general, and how soon you can get a tattoo by Russ.

When we talk about pop culture references in tattooing, the name Zane Donnellan should ring a bell — but you’re more likely to know him as Gooney Toons, the cartoon tattoo wunderkind hailing from STR Body Modifications in Wyong, NSW, Australia.

The Danny Derrick Interview

November 12th, 2013 by Julene Huffman -

       

I’ve been following Danny’s work for years, and finally crossed paths with him this summer. I’ve always admired his hard work and approach to the art, and I’m proud we’re featuring his work on Tattoo Snob. I always knew that Danny was one of the good guys in tattooing, and this interview does nothing if not reinforce that.

The Dave Tevenal Interview

September 4th, 2013 by Kevin -

       

If you follow tattoo or tattooer art online, I can guarantee you’ve come across Dave Tevenal’s work. Last year his Vimeo video went viral in the art world and racked up a bajillion views. I’ve wanted to interview Dave for a while, and I’ve wanted to get tattooed by for even longer. For whatever reason, the stars never aligned in the sky to make either one happen until last month.

I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Dave a little over the last few years, and I’m extremely proud of this inter view – not for the website or my own self interest, but  because Dave’s one of the hardest working guys I know.

In the past year Kristel Oreto has moved across the country, had her artwork ripped off by multiple artists, tattooed countless people across the United States, had her art work stolen again (this time on national television), personally spoke to Dave Navarro about being ripped off, and formed a gang of heavily tattooed females.

Last week we were able to catch up with Kristel about everything that’s been going on, and what’s next for here. Click below to read our exclusive interview with her.
