Tattoo Age: Troy Denning Part 1

Always a good day when I see the new Tattoo Age is out, granted I was a bit slow on this one though… I must say this is the first time I have heard of Troy Denning, so it was a nice insight into a new artist for me. Enjoy!

Tattoo Age - Grime Part 1

August11

Tattoo Age is back! This time they take a look at Tattoo Artist “Grime”. Unfortunately Grime is known for one thing well before he is known for his skill, his deformity . It is this same thing that has driven his to be such an amazing artist. This is a fantastic and honest look into the man and the artist. Probably my favorite episode yet.

Tattoo Age Part 2&3

July28

So when I posted up the first episode of Tattoo Age, it would seem I didn’t quite get the premise. While that was part one, it wasn’t quite episode 1. It would seem they have broken then into parts and today I can share part 2 and 3 of episode 1 of the Dan Santoro and the Smith Street Parlour. Enjoy

Part 3, after the Hop:

Tattoo Age Episode 1

July14

The first Episode of Tattoo Age is out, and shows us an interesting albeit short look into the life of the Smith Street Tattoo Parlor with the focus on artist Dan Santoro. The show is elegantly shot and the soundtrack is both subtle and mesmerising. Its really great to see a humble tat show with the emphasis on the work. I cant wait for episode 2.

It’s about the Tattoo’s

July1

Last night I watched the first episode of NY INK, during the run up to the show Ami James spoke a lot about how this new series would be about getting away from the drama and preventing another fiasco like LA INK, I must say I was a little disappointed as the show was very much all about the drama and it left little for the art of tattooing. I am hoping it gets better, but in the mean time here is something else to look forward to. A new show which delves into the culture and the artists behind tats, looking good…
