The Durb Morrison Interview

August 16th, 2011 by Kevin -


It’s hard not to know who Durb Morrison is. Between his tattooing, running Hell CityTrue TubesPint Sized Paintings and all of the other side projects he has going on – you’ve seen his name somewhere. But what do any of actually know about him?

We recently sat down and talked to Durb about his time in the tattoo industry, opening his first tattoo shop with $500, and creating the Hell City Tattoo Festival.

Artist Interview: Brad Stevens

A friend turned me on to the work of Brad Stevens before I moved to New York, and I’ve been a big fan ever since. It only makes sense that we interviewed this vegan heartthrob/new addition to New York Adorned before anyone else got to him!

Artist Interview: Orrin Hurley

March 29th, 2011 by Julene Huffman -


We have been fans of Orrin Hurley‘s work for a while now. His impressively versatile portfolio showcases not only a wide variety of themes and styles, but a willingness to approach each tattoo with enthusiasm and the desire to help it “be all it can be.”

There’s nothing wrong with having your niche and sticking to it–but that’s just not Orrin’s style. And, one of our favorite things about him. (Sweet Southern accent and wicked sense of humor aside, that is.)

Artist Interview: Jakub Settgast

I don’t know if there’s an easy way to write an intro for this interview. There’s a lot to say about Jakub Settgast–from the first time I saw his work, I knew I had to interview him. And boy am I glad we did, and hopefully he is too… despite some of his very candid answers.

The Josh Duffy interview

March 9th, 2011 by Kevin -


Recently I had the opportunity to sit down and talk to Josh Duffy of MD Tattoo Studio. I didn’t have a formal list of questions to ask Josh, we merely just sat down and let the conversation go wherever it went. During the conversation, Josh talks to us about his style of tattooing, some of his favorite conventions, what it’s like to tattoo in Southern California, and he explains how he knows Jim Sylvia.

Artist Profile: Esther Garcia

February 23rd, 2011 by Julene Huffman -


There’s no two ways about it: Esther Garcia is a total badass. Not in the “take your milk money and send you home crying to your Mommy” way (though I wouldn’t rule it out). No, it’s more a feeling of, “damn girl, please make renditions of classical paintings on MY body!”

Artist Profile: Seth Ciferri

February 10th, 2011 by Kevin -


When Seth Ciferri agreed to do this interview, I had no doubt that it would be something else. As you continue to read this, I’m sure you’ll agree Seth did not disappoint.

I’m going to end the intro at that, and let you read more about Seth, his work, the new shop, and some of his thoughts.
