Hold on, wait a minute – I might be spending our rent money this week on buying a ticket to Russia so that I can get some tattoo work done by DENI AKTEMIROV whose art is completely off the chain! I’m totally amazed by his lines, because many of the creatures

Unholy fuck, I really dig the tattoo work of OILBURNER!!! He combines two things that I love: SoCal Gangland graffiti and Black Metal iconography. Looking at his work almost gives me the feeling that I’m at the gates of hell itself. Within the mayhem that is his style, you will

  Photos by Nathaniel Shannon Brooklyn based Tattoo Artist Jeremy Sutton isn’t hard to miss in a crowd, standing at a towering 6’6″ and covered from head to toe in tattoos. In fact, if one was casting a movie that called for an “intimidating as shit, tough looking Tattoo Artist,”

Instead of Easter egg hunts, wouldn’t it be more apt to have kids hammer nails into a cross, or play “whip the heretic,” or hunt for hunks of flesh and vials of blood? Instead of eating chocolate, we should be eating medium-rare steak (or maybe tartare)! I mean, if we’re

When I’m white-haired and sagging under the weight of my experiences, the world is going to look very different. For one thing, the stereotype of what an older person looks like/dresses like is changing with each generation. Our generations don’t feel the need to throw off the trappings of our
