I just watched a sneak peak at the first episode of Tattoo Age….
It’s exactly as good as most of us were hoping it would be. Total geek stuff here; no drama or contrived reality tv vibe; just banter from a bunch of guys who know each other a little too well (the Smith Street crew) and a lot of ‘in the shop’ scenes that will remind you of time you’ve spent at the shop talking about tattoos, breaking balls and having a good time.

The best thing I can say about it is- It will have very limited appeal outside of the tattoo community. I really can’t wait for the rest of the episodes to air!

Penguin Ink?

So. The last post was a little negative. I try to not be that media unfriendly, but TLC forced my hand.
In response… how about some amazing cover art featuring some of the finest tattooers in the world?
Penguin Books has commissioned tattoo artists to create book covers for their ‘Penguin Ink’ line. Robert Ryan, Chris O’Donnell, Jen Munford, Grez, Bert Krak and more have all created new covers for classic Penguin Books. There are a handfull available with more apparently coming.
