This week the lovely people at Titan Books sent me a book to review called Body Art, which is a book from the makers of Bizarre. I’ve seen these things on the shelves before from Bizarre, though this is the first Titan edition. Titan will also be re-issuing the previous Body Art books too, from … Read more
The delightful Plumsie sent me a message yesterday to let me know that there’s a super cool interview with Paul Booth in this month’s Bizarre magazine! They’re having a ‘tattoo special’ this month, which of course means throwing around the words “Kat Von D” and “queen of ink”, but the magazine is actually a pretty … Read more
Last week, Bill at the US Tattoosday blog got his hands on a copy of the new Kat Von D book to review. I’m assuming it’s out everywhere right now, so if you’re interested, head down and pick up a copy. I haven’t seen it myself, so here’s an excerpt from Bill’s review: If you’re … Read more
Here’s something you don’t see every day. Or isn’t it? Right now, there are far too many people taking advantage of the tattoo industry for their own gain, making it look… well, pretty stupid, really. We have the TV shows, the clothing lines and even magazines that make tattooing look like a trend or a … Read more
I apologise for the lame updates this week everyone, the news has not been good to me lately. Thankfully, the High Voltage newsletter hit my inbox today, and while you all still seem to be hatin’ on Kat Von D (something I don’t blame you for at all, by the way), there were still a … Read more
I’m not going to lie, I personally don’t like this chick. You lot on the other hand, seem to always be curious on what she’s up to, so I guess it would be selfish not to write about it. This post goes out to Erin Spencer especially, who told me on our Facebook page she’d … Read more
Two new iPhone applications just hit Tattoosday UK yesterday. One is the new Tattoo Ink: Hollywood, which bears a striking resemblance to the career of Kat Von D, and the other is iTattoo, by Guinness World Record Holder Jeremy Swan. We’ve taken a good look at them, so you don’t have to. I know, we’re … Read more
As we draw this year to an end, we take a look at an artist that hasn’t been written about a lot lately. 2009 started off as a promising year for LA Ink star Kat Von D. Releasing a book in January, Kat had a sea of devoted fans, many people looking to have … Read more
Okay, so I’m hearing all the news from over the weekend about this guy. The basic story is, Jeremy Swan now holds the Guinness World Record for the number of tattoos done in 24 hours. The long story is, should we care? Yes, it’s kind of cool, and every artist wants to be the best … Read more
There are so many idiots in the world, it was no wonder they’d be tattooing. We’ve talked about scratchers before, so that should really be no wonder to you all, but the way they’re getting their machines is a pisstake. Today,we’re looking at one of the other villians of the tattoo industry: eBay.
… As in, it doesn’t do what it says on the tin. This is a picture of Kat Von D before her airbrushed photo-shoot. This picture tells me there is no way in hell her product will work, which is no surprise considering she isn’t a make up artist and should have been tattooing instead … Read more
“Tattoo artist” Kat Von D will pretty much sell any crap, but now she’s selling make up to cover tattoos?
Sorry it’s been a while, guys. Just a quick note to those Kat Von D or LA Ink fans: Kat Von D will be starting to write another book for Harper and Collins as soon as she’s finished touring her current book: High Voltage Tattoo. There’s not a lot of news on it yet, but … Read more
