Neal,both of which were newer to shooting with me, but that I had gotten to know on a personal level, and we? Lots of planning and ideas got tossed around for this huge shoot, but ultimately we all decided thatthe more skin they can show and get away with it, the better!
I think we definitely accomplished that in these shots that you? My visions and ideas are always focused onpushing the boundaries of edginess and sex appeal, without becoming distasteful and offensive. Theladies were all my friends after all, so the comfort level around each other was pretty high. The crazything about this shoot though, was that the four of the ladies had never met prior to this shoot!
They had all obviously heard of each other and they all loved the work I did with them individually, but shooting together, all four of them at one time was going to be a brand new experience for all of us!
I could only hope that they all got along and that everything went according to my visual plans. As I began editing these photos in the days and weeks after the shoot, I knew that we had accomplished something pretty special; something that not too many photographers would have even attempted, with shooting multiple subjects at the same time. I knew that I probably had a couple good cover photos in the mix, but I never imagined I would have an entire issue dedicated to my photos, my work, my art, my vision!

I brought in my friends and roommates who wanted free tattoos. My first one was a clean-up of an old Marvin the Martian tattoo. I ordered my starter kit from the back of one of those magazines and started learning on myself by tattooing my thighs. This is why my legs look so bad. I also started going to conventions and watching the artists work. This helped a lot. Today, tattoo artists are practicing on fruit, or even those fake practice skins, which feel like the real thing, but you can always tell a tattooist from my generation by his legs.
Otherwise you get this crash-course type of thing that turns you loose with nowhere to go. Brad Fink of Iron Age St. It is about paying dues in some sense. But I paid my dues by cleaning the shit pots and sweeping the floors. I got an apprenticeship at Eternal Tattoos in Detroit, which lasted about three months. It was cool. I was going five days a week after work [making kitchen countertops], and after three months, I quit my job and started tattooing full time.
I know it was quick. My apprenticeship was with Tramp, but I learned from everyone there. Tom Renshaw was working there and kinda took me under his wing. He really taught me everything, going way out of his way to help me out. He taught me everything from how to deal with customers to promoting yourself, to technique, the types of needles he uses. I was ready to scrub toilets and clean puke, but on my first day, Tramp showed me how to make needles, and after that, he really wanted me to watch and learn.
I knew from the very beginning that he was a very important man in the history of the world, not only in tattooing. He was a giant. And so my moments with Jerry and anything I have from him are touchstones to something very real. Only a few people, really, and I was one of them. He hated women tattoo artists. Wallin on how he apprentices artists: I apprentice artists for about six months. The apprenticeship continues for two years, regardless of when they start tattooing.
Training involves constant drawing, studying, observing, learning responsibility, and even some basic psychology and customer service. I see it as: They are learning how to run their own shop one day, so it needs to be comprehensive. The most important lesson is respect: Give back something and move it forward. During my apprenticeship I had to get coffee and lunch for everyone, clean the shop, help the customers, set up appointments, clean the bathroom, clean and set up the stations, paint the walls, paint the sign out front, scrub tubes, make needles, do supply runs, read, study, draw, draw, draw, watch everyone tattooing, come in early every day and stay late, work every day, water the plants, change light bulbs, hang paintings, and pretty much Previous Page: Truth is, most tattooers do not make out with rock stars, have prime seats at the Super Bowl, tattoo celebrities on private jets, or walk red carpets.
Most tattoo artists spend days covered in ink and blood, suffer from bad backs and wrist pain, bounce drunks out to the street, and talk persistent people out of very bad ideas. Still want to be a tattooer? Class begins now! Clockwise from top left: Hell, I got to learn a craft that is awesome to get to do for cash.
Now I get to earn a living making art all day. I think my apprenticeship was pretty easy compared to what some people have to go through. Myles on hazing apprentices: Pretty much everyone that comes in to Dare Devil gets hazed. My shop is like a pack of wolves. They chew you up until you are accepted as one of the pack.
Hellenbrand on having to learn to pee standing up: I had to learn to pee standing up. Jack Rudy taught me that if I was gonna be one of the boys in his shop, I was gonna be one of the boys.
So I learned. Coffey on his hazing: I got to keep the money when it came out. My first six tattoos were on friends or people I worked with, free tattoos.
My hands were literally shaking. When I started to learn to tattoo, I went to St. I learned by trial and error. Coffey on his first tattoo: I did my first tattoo in May of It was on my friend Jack, who had a little Mad Hatter tattoo on his arm.
It was an old tattoo, so we retouched it. I felt really bad for Jack. It took me three hours to do a tattoo that I could do in about a half-hour today. But Jack was a champ. Honestly, I think that it was a pretty good job.
I was so aware of everything that was going on that it was a pretty clean tattoo for my first one.
I had it in my book for quite a while. My apprenticeship was anything but traditional, so I tattooed myself, the first time I held a set-up machine, inside of two weeks. That first time I let it rip on skin was my own ankle, and it was literally a handful of lines and some shading. My first free tattoo on another person was a tribal scorpion on a friend. I can honestly say my hands were shaking like a leaf.
My apprenticeship included 13 free tattoos, done over the course of two weeks. Its focus on composition and design makes it the best resource for developing the artistry of the craft.
Each book comes with a code that allows you access to online support, upgrade packages, and an online tattoo community. The updated edition tackles every practicality of the tattoo business from needle making to sterilization to the logistics of opening up your own studio. I have no desire to be a Hori.
I already did all that Hori stuff in my twenties. No more Horying around for me! The best way to show off your artwork is in an organized portfolio that you can bring to tattoo shops and conventions on your hunt for an apprenticeship.
Try using half-inch three-ring view binders, which you can insert your own cover art into. Twelve pages will tell prospective employers everything they need to know. Remember, attention spans are short. This is a part of the apprenticeship process and shows an ability to put together small, complete images that look good.
Open the portfolio with a short letter of introduction, mentioning any past artistic experience and describing your style. Follow this with your strongest artwork, and arrange the following pages with care and attention to detail.
And there are those who are great tattooists but not great artists.
A lot of it is technique. I went to art school and thought it was going to be easy to tattoo, and I actually have pieces in my portfolio that I did in my first six months of tattooing that are really inconsistent. Some people make the mistake when they first get into tattooing—I certainly made the mistake when I first started—that you think if you can paint it, then you can definitely tattoo it.
I like to see drive, hunger. There are two elements to tattooing—the art and the technical—and the way they merge together ultimately defines the tattooer. I see a lot of tattooers out there, more these days than before, who are incredible artists, but technically their work lacks, and unfortunately, people are not aware of that until the tattoo is a few years old.
Then they discover, look, the ink is falling out.
So there are all these factors in picking an artist. These are a lot of the things I look at [in choosing to hire an artist]: I look at the way they approach a design. Are they paying attention to how it fits the body? Are they thinking beyond the scope of the image itself—are they two-dimensional or three-dimensional thinkers?
Obviously, you want to vibe with them. Skin tone definitely affects design and color choice. When you see a tattoo, you are not seeing the design on the surface of the skin—you are looking through the skin. A tattoo is initially placed into all layers of skin. When the tattoo is healed, the top layers exfoliate and only the underlying layers remain with pigment. A healed tattoo has a few layers of skin grown back on top of the tattoo.
That is why colors appear dull and muted on black people but vibrant on white people. This affects design for the same reasons: White skin displays detailed work better than darker skin. Dark skin tends to scar more than white skin and should not be aggressively handled. Some clients just feel more comfortable with the idea of a woman for certain tattoos, either because of the placement or the imagery.
I have had a few encounters of skepticism on my ability from clients over the years, but I have always thrived on being better and changing minds on what women are capable of.
Hellenbrand on the elements to being a great tattoo artist: Tattooing encompasses all other arts. Everything feeds into it. In order to be a great tattoo artist, first you should know how to draw. Then weave that with chemistry, metallurgy, electromagnetic principles, human principles, anatomy, physiology, biology, psychology … all these things come together.
Tyrrell on how to become a good tattooist: Draw your ass off. I just walked in one day. I had been dabbling with drawing tribal designs. Some friends of mine took one of my drawings to the local biker shop to get priced, and the guy there asked who did them. When I heard that, I walked in there one day as a minor and passed it off.
Even back then, I think I saw it as a way to start tattooing. I was still 17, a senior in high school. What did you think you were going to do for a living otherwise?
I probably would have gone to some commercial design school or something. So I finished my apprenticeship and started tattooing professionally before my senior year was up. My after-school job was tattooing walk-ins at a tattoo shop. What was the shop like? It was a biker tattoo shop that had been there for 20 years.
I was lucky because there was a young guy who had started about six months before named Nate Drew. I think he saw the benefit of having another young person around who he could bounce ideas off.
So Nate put the word in and passed my drawings on. After that it was a whirlwind. It seemed like it was almost meant to be because it took no effort to get started. Did you always know that you would end up working in art in some way?
Even as a little kid, I was known as the kid who could draw. Anyone in school responded to me positively when they saw I could draw. That was my ticket, my survival mechanism. What were you like as a kid? I was just a skater and an artist. I just wanted to get out and skate and draw.
I had no attention span for academics. I got it when I was It was done by a friend who had a tattoo machine, but it was essentially hand-poked. What was your apprenticeship like? It was pretty lenient. A lot of my friends had pretty rough experiences with their apprenticeships, but they were more interested in making money off of me. I had a few little test runs. Every design was challenging. Their methods were pretty primitive in that respect. Just the needle groupings that they would use and things.
I learned the worst way possible, so that made me adaptable. So you were forced to learn on your own? Oh, yeah. You later worked at Absolute Art with Timothy Hoyer. What was that like? He came from Primal Urge in San Francisco, and he brought that vibe. He had stories. Every anecdote and story sparked so much inspiration in me. I was getting a taste of what tattooing could actually be.
It was about two years later. As soon as Timothy got there, we really hit it off. We were drawing together and taking trips. He would take me with him on guest spots. He just really got along well and started collaborating. The other guys at Absolute Art had been doing it a lot longer than I had. They were into other things. Me and Timothy were the only ones who were really fired up at the time, so we started talking about doing our own thing with an art gallery up front.
Suddenly, we were doing it. What was your style like when Alive opened? I was starting to explore the Japanese stuff more and the traditional American-style stuff. Basically, I was trying to prove myself as a tattooer. I was just trying to show I could do a koi fish or a rose or a dragon. Maybe eventually I could make something unique from that, but I was just trying to make the cut.
Why did you stop working with the Americana style? That was a couple of years ago, when the Ed Hardy clothing line came out. I was trying to do more Japanese stuff. The Americana stuff was on so many pocketbooks and shirts.
How did you get interested in Japanese-style tattoos? I got into it because Timothy was doing painterly stuff and had a somewhat abstract quality to his work.
I figured, being the young guy, I better pursue something different. You see it all the time, people just copying their mentor. Why did you leave Alive Gallery? I grew up there and was tired of it. I wanted to be somewhere important. Lori Levin, who owns New York Adorned, used to manage it.
What do you think about tattoo TV shows? I try not to care. I worked with some of the guys on those shows. It waters it down in a lot of ways. It ruins the mystique. Do you feel the same way about something like the Ed Hardy clothing line? It is odd to see some of those designs that I responded to so early in my career on a pair of shoes, but at the same time I could never have the perspective that Ed has.
If you just want to paint, then why not make some money so you can have a studio, travel the world, and go to galleries and enjoy the rest of your life?
No one can say different. What celebrities have you tattooed? A variety. What I can say about all of them is that they sought me out specifically. They came to me.
Lindsay and I have a mutual friend, Sam Ronson, so she sort of facilitated it. I knew that I hated being at the mercy of the next person who walked in and what they wanted. Occasionally it would be something cool, but more often than not it was some ridiculous thing. And then they wanted to haggle over the price.
My only real foresight was knowing that was possible. Is it difficult to balance your creativity with what the customer wants? There are definitely restraints on your creative vision in tattooing. Elm Street Tattoo Elm St. With his growing collection of dice, more Americana on the walls than the local T.
The mobile shop was built with two full-service tattoo stations and travels as part of the annual Vans Warped Tour, providing ink to bands such as MxPx and The Bronx. Surprisingly, neither one is red. While the boss is out tattooing sweaty rockers all summer, Elm Street is left in the hands of its roster of talented artists.
While their collective experience reaches into the decades and their specialties differ, they all share one trait. The shop is a place for our friends and people in the hood to come hang out. I called up the city, and they gave me lists of needy kids.
The day after the party, all of our friends sort the toys, load them into trucks, and deliver them to the kids. Last year, Peck set the world record for the most tattoos given in 24 hours. My hand hurt a lot the next day. Peck and his staff like to take tattooing back to a time before the biker era.
Having a good time is good for business. I started working at the shop about seven months ago. I got the job through Jon Reed, who works at the shop. He has been tattooing me for a while. My day usually consists of helping people with their paperwork, making stencils, answering phones, and sometimes drawing.
