NEW YORK TATTOO GOODNESS
With the NYC Tattoo Convention kicking off it's 12th year today at 4pm, Time Out NY has gotten behind the show, giving out free tickets and publishing a 3-part article in tribute to tattooed New Yorkers.
Part 1 showcases six locals and their New York-themed tattoos, like Joshua Newberg above and his backpiece by Ray Jerez of Inborn Tattoo. I also love the Coney Island tribute sleeve by Michelle Myles of Daredevil tattoo on Brooklyn lawyer Suzanne Bivins.
Part 2 is Three Must-Dos at the Convention, a short and sweet list of this weekend's highlights including Sunday's Best Overall competition, and tebori, traditional hand Japanese tattooing, taking place on the second floor.
And Part 3 is TONY's own tattooed employees and their stories.
Catch Brian, and I at the show Saturday and Sunday giving away free Needles and Sins stickers. I also plan to give y'all a live breakdown of the art and events via Twitter.
Can't make it tonight, though, because we'll be at the opening night for Rooftop Films, and while this eve is sold out, check the rest of the schedule for some of the best indie shorts and full length features screened outdoors this summer.
TATTOO PORTRAITS BY LEE CORKETT
In putting together my tattoo book on blackwork, I've not only been privy to new, stunning work from the world's top tattooists, but also top photography of the art. Today I want to share with you a new photography find:
The tattoo portraits of Lee Corkett, WeatherVane Images, Conejo Valley, CA.
Lee is a freelance photographer and designer who is working with Zulu Tattoo in LA to capture his body of work on beautifully decorated bodies, like this piece on Nikki Haydock.
For a close-up of the tattoo, check out our Flickr page.
What I particularly like about Lee's work is the ease and movement of those bodies; you especially see it in fabulous dance galleries, with some adorned in tattoos and henna art as well.

Bonus video: The Family Guy video below has nothing to do with the Hope Gallery Show or tattoos in general. I watched it on Hulu.com last night & wanted to share it because it's the best Star Wars parody I've seen. Seriously, you'll hurt yourself laughing
