Trip to see a handful of the world’s best tattoo artists.
I came back from the World Wide Tattoo Conference in Chicago full of inspiration, with a couple new tricks, and an open mind.I took seminars from Guy Aitchison, Hungarian artist Boris, Italian artist Alex De Pase, Bob Tyrell, Nick Baxter, Jeff Gogue, a few words from James Kern and got a chance to pick brains in the meanwhile. All great artists without egos, just artistic drive.
I’m really excited to see my growth over the next 6 months. I’m looking forward to painting again, and expand my art knowledge evermore. This was a definite “me” trip. I was excited to get home and share my newfound excitement for the art. Excited to just grow and be myself as an artist! And I’m excited for those of you who I hope to benefit from it!
I also got to check out a new product, Which will help my clients from getting red during the tattoo. Richie Bulldog’s “HUSTLE BUTTER”. NO KIDDING, it’s awesome. I tried it yesterday on two 1/2 sleeves. We get to see the actual colors I’m laying down, rather than competing with the flesh. I can saturate whites, and light colors more fully with confidence. That means quicker tattooing for me, but more than that it means less damage to the skin. Not too mention sweet photos aftewards. I’m stoked on it! I look forward to posting the results of my latest inspirations! Take Care!
