PARADISE TATTOO GATHERING KICKS OFF
Just another reminder that an important tattoo expo, vacation, learning experience begins Thursday: The Paradise Tattoo Gathering in the beautiful Berkshires.
The world's greatest artists will descend upon Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort for a long weekend of seminars, panels, workshops and general merriment. And yes, most (around 60) will be tattooing, so join me in this tattoo vacation and relax with some fine art poking. Check the artist line-up, which includes Mike Cole who's work is shown right.
There's too much going on to list it all here so check the events page on the schedule.
For an idea on what to expect, view these videos from last year's gathering.
I'll be there from Friday afternoon through the weekend hawking my Black Tattoo Art book so look for my table. If I'm not there, I'm probably in the hot tub.
[Also on sale there: Guy Aitchison's Reinventing the Tattoo. It's a tattoo tome on everything from design to execution.]
Freaks & Flash at Intuit, the Center for Intuitive & Outsider Art, in Chicago is a brilliant exhibit featuring tattoo flash designs along with sideshow banners.
Tattooist Nick Colella of the Chicago Tattoo Company says the highlights of the show include flash by George Burchett, Sailor Jerry, Amund Dietzel, Samuel O'Reilly ...
A Who's Who of Old School Masters!
In fact, many of the pieces have not been on public display since they were taken down from the walls of the shops in which they originally resided.
In addition, the exhibition features four sideshow banners depicting tattooed performers by banner artists Fred Johnson, Jack Cripe, and Snap Wyatt.
The show will run until January 9th.
You can view the work from Tuesday to Saturday 11am-5pm (Thursday it's open until 7:30pm) and admission is free.
Yesterday was the US launch of the racing game Dirt 2, and what better way to promote virtual off-road rallies than, ya know, a Flash app that lets you tattoo some woman's breasts. The app is called "Dirty Tats." And that's not even the worst part.
The obviously sex starved Codemasters who created the tattoo game know how to do creepy well, albeit unintentionally. After the intro of loud and just plain bad pop-metal, you're treated to gooey come-ons from a voluptuous vixen who purrs "I like the personal touch," or "Looks like you have some hidden talents." My special talent was not vomiting while trying to get the words "misogyny" across her chest via the Lettering tool.
And like all bad tattoo Flash games, there are the bad tattoo flash stencils that you can stick on her, like the Tribal fish and Kanji for "why am I wasted my time."
Once you've wasted that time, you get to share your tattooed boob image by downloading it as a wallpaper or sharing it via Facebook or Flickr. But is that kind of productivity something you'd like the world to know?
Oh, did I mention the boobs move and throb? That was the best part.
Bottom line: if you regularly enjoy eating Cheez Whiz from the can and have a Microsoft logo tattooed on you, you'll love Dirty Tats.
