Andrew Stortz discusses small town tattooing

This video features Andrew Stortz discussing small town tattooing, clients puking all over him, and his upcoming move to Hobo’s Tattoo in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

It’s a short video, and worth the watch. I like Andrew’s outlook on small town tattooing, and I would be excited if more artists had that same mentality.

The Budapest Tattoo Convention was last weekend, and here’s an extended look at the show in Spanish. This video is almost thirty minutes, and features a number of interviews with various artists in Spanish.

All about that tattoo life

I wish I had more information about this video, but unfortunately the only thing the video says is “Un pequeño trabajo en conjunto con las tatuajerías Entre Tintas y Dolores para un trabajo de la universidad.” which translates to “A little work in conjunction with tatuajerías Between Ink and Dolores for college work.”

Now I tried to research Between Ink and Tatuajerías, but I couldn’t find anything concrete. If anyone has better luck, leave a comment below and I’ll update this post.

First Friday Art Walk at Recession Studio

This is what it’s all about. Props to Recession Shop in Portland, Maine for keeping it real. By the way, Recession Shop is a skate shop – not a tattoo shop. Obviously the tattoo culture and the skateboard culture have gone hand and hand for years, but it’s still cool to see real represent real.

Here’s a short bio of Jared Preslar from Lucky Bamboo Tattoo in Layton, Utah. At 1:40, the timing of this video is perfect. It’s short enough to watch it on your phone, but long enough to give you a quick glance at Jared’s portfolio.
