An Interview with the Blackwork Master

July 8th, 2014 by Kevin -


This video features Cory Ferguson being interviewed by Adam Lauricella for TattooNOWTV.

This is a lengthy interview at forty-five minutes long, but it’s certainly interesting. If you have a commute or if you’re stuck at a desk – this the perfect thing to listen to.

Too Good for Instagram

July 8th, 2014 by Kevin -


I saw this piece by Dan Pemble and Ryan Thomas on Instagram, but the small picture didn’t do the piece justice. Thankfully both of these guys are professionals, and took a real picture (i.e. with a real camera, not a cell phone) to show the detail this piece deserves.

A Full Plate of Questions

July 7th, 2014 by Kevin -


I always have a slew of questions when a tattoo like this is submitted. How much time did it take, how many sessions were completed, is there a back story behind all of it, or was it put together piece by piece?

Good Advice for a Monday Morning

July 7th, 2014 by Kevin -


Monday mornings are bad enough, but a Monday morning after a holiday weekend seems about ten times worse, no?

The Second Session with Myke Chambers

July 4th, 2014 by Kevin -


This five minute time lapse recaps a full day of Myke Chambers tattooing a full back piece. I don’t know how long the session was, but they made a lot of progress. Now I’m not a tattoo artist, but I always appreciate a good time lapse video to see exactly how an artist goes about a piece.

The Perfect Submission

July 3rd, 2014 by Kevin -


Pictures Shot on a real camera? Check.
High Resolution Pictures? Check.
Multiple Angles? Check.

This is the trifecta of perfection.
