Meet Carlos Zucato

Meet Carlos Zucato. Carlos is a tattoo artist in São Paulo, Brazil. This video shows he’s a fairly young artist, but does solid work and he’s a likeable guy.

My favorite part about this video is when Carlos talks about his approach to tattooing. Instead of specializing in just one style, he tries to be well rounded to take care of every client that walks in the door. That’s an old school approach. Artists couldn’t afford to turn away work, so they did everything.

One of my favorite Instagram accounts is Nate Beavers. Nate tattoos it all, and is always working on something interesting. Do yourself a favor, and follow him.

You don’t see too many portraits that are crying, but shit… I like it.

Learn the Ropes

I wonder how nautical phrases/slang like hold fast and learn the ropes became part of everyday language? And what phrases/slang today will become everyday language in the future?

I’m going to be really disappointed if YOLO sticks around for the long haul…

Stay… Bali?

Apparently the wearer of this tattoo wants this wolf to stay in Bali. That must be a bad ass wolf.

Black Anchor Collective at MusInk

I learned two things from this video.

  1. I need to go to MusInk.
  2. Nikko Hurtado must be exhausted by the end of the convention. I was exhausted just watching everyone talk to him, take pictures with him, and whatnot.

Shout out to Black Anchor Collective for making this video. It was super simple, but I really enjoyed it.
