The Newest Trend in Tattooing: Pudding!

April 14th, 2014 by Kevin -


A new trend emerged this weekend at the Hell City Tattoo Fest. Pudding. That’s right, pudding. Cups of pudding were being devoured throughout the convention thanks to Russ Abbott and the Ink and Dagger Tattoo crew. Now, I don’t think this isn’t a trend that is going to come and go. The Pudd_Ink Instagram shows how serious tattoo artists and collectors are about their pudding.

Thanks to Clint Lee, we have exclusive video of all the top tattoo artists partaking in this newest trend. There was so much video, we actually made two songs. The first video is shorter, and debuts a custom song by Taylor Cort. The second video is significantly longer and features every cup of pudding eaten at Hell City this weekend.

Now, go get yourself a cup of pudding and enjoy!

Everyone knows Lowrider Tattoo Studio is the spot, and this proves it even more.

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.

Black Anchor Collective at MusInk

April 6th, 2014 by Kevin -


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.

Welcome to Black Anvil Tattoo

I’ve always heard a lot of great things about Black Anvil Tattoo, but I’ve never been there. This video helps out with that, and shares some information about the artists and the shop.

If you’re anywhere near Fort Wayne, Indiana – this should be on your tattooed bucket list. If you’re not, buy a shirt and support a great shop.
