The Gypsy Gentleman


It’s almost a constant with any tattoo blog; throwing Miami or LA Inked under the bus. I’ve been guilty of it myself. Seeing tattooing transition from “our thing” to pop culture hasn’t been easy. We all begrudgingly admit that while we hate it’s ubiquitousness, we’re glad that it was Ed Hardy who made a fortune off of tattoo related product over-saturation. We even wax philosophically on the future of tattoo culture and how low it will sink before it’s “ours” again.

Luckily for us, Brooklyn based tattooer Marcus Kuhn has a new project in the works that promises to be the antidote for those who feel that we’ve been left high and dry by the current glut of tattoo media. With the first episode featuring Kuhn, Virginia Elwood and Thomas Hooper, it’s hard to go wrong.

I’ll be looking forward to what Marcus is going to do with this.

  2. @Justin- I read this (from a fellow who had just gotten tattooed by Marcus) a few weeks back but haven’t heard anything since:

    “I guess there’s a 10 minute trailer coming out any day now with the DVDs being distributed via an upcoming issue of TAM and the release of the full 37 minute video will be available for download on the 5th of June for a reasonable $4.

    You will also be able to purchase limited DVDs of each episode for $25”
