The Ultimate in Couples Tattoos
On this Valentine's Day, I want to share the ultimate in tattoo love -- being part of a larger art work beyond one's own skin. Artist Little Swastika has been creating full scale tattoos that span two and even three bodies.
I asked him to tell me a bit more about his work. Here's what he shared:
Skin is just a canvas. I try to use the human body as such. To go so far as I can away from what I know about classical tattooing. To create my work free on the body. To play with the shape and dimension of it. I never search the technical perfection or go too much into details. I love it bold and big. To create art not tattoos...
I life far away from out tattoo society. I read no magazines. I go to no conventions and work no where else than in my private galerie. All my inspiration is life and my mind. I don't know how to categorize my work, and I don't want to. It's just the art I created in my mind and use it on a human body as my point of view.....
I think I've only done one Needles and Sins Public Service Announcement, probably around this time last year, so I guess we're due for one. Let's call it an anniversary PSA.
I should first define what a PSA is, I guess. According to Wikipedia, knower of all things, "a typical PSA is part of a public awareness campaign to inform or educate the public about an issue such as smoking or compulsive gambling."
We'd like to address these very issues here. Our message is this:
Smoking, compulsive gambling as well as excessive drinking can be very expensive.
Server fees, travel expenses to conventions, and the cost of our events and swag aside, the real cost of bringing you this content for free is our bar tabs, bookies and a love story that takes place inside a pack of Camels.
Our advertisers are our enablers.
We are selective, however, as to who gets the job of making our lives a cautionary tale. Our latest advertiser is Eikon Device Tattoo Equipment & Supply. They paid for the post below. Now, we've been approached by a number of tattoo supply companies who've wanted to advertise, and we turned them down because we couldn't vouch for their stuff--and thus, risk steering you the wrong way so that you never return here. [We also have abandonment issues.] But Eikon has been around for over 13 years. I watched Dan DiMattia make his needles using only Eikon (later switching to their pre-made) and so I knew that top tattooers trusted them. And if Eikon takes money from top tattooists, we'll take Eikon's money and promote top tattooists. The circle is complete.
Yes, all this text above is simply to say: Please support our advertisers.
I know, WTF. We could've just asked at the start and avoided the verbal foreplay.
Eikon Device is a leading manufacturer and online distributor of tattoo supplies and equipment. Initially formed in 1994 to research and develop tattoo needles, Eikon Device expanded its scope in 1997 to focus on the technical aspects of tattooing. This change marked the beginning of many published papers as well as two tattoo inventions: the Eikon Meter and Tru-Spring armature bars.
The success of Eikon Device is largely due to its foundation in science and research. Their continuous focus on tattooing techniques, safety issues and product quality helps tattoo artists make better choices about products and practices. Eikon Device offers a full catalog of tattoo supplies and equipment:
* Tattoo machines, from FK Irons to Neuma machines and supplies;
* Tattoo ink in five great choices for color: Eternal Ink, Silverback Ink and Fantasia from the USA; Classic Color from Australia; and Dermaglo from the U.K.;
* Tattoo power supplies and equipment including tips, grips and tubes (incl. disposable);
* Needles are offered pre-made or you can choose supplies to solder your own;
* Disposable medical supplies, from dental bibs and ink caps to tape and bandages;
* Art supplies like tracing paper and drawing ink--and at a better price than most art stores
Additionally, it has a sizable library of research and educational information as well as art books including the recently released Tattoo Prodigies.
Eikon Device will soon be re-launching their website making online purchasing even easier.
