Best Intentions (2015)

coverbest1

British Tattooer Ash Davies has just released a mammoth new tattoo magazine called Best Intentions which can be found here.
Even if I weren’t a contributor I’d recommend that you buy a copy; this is DIY tattoo culture and supporting projects like this mean that cool stuff(tm) is going to be made by people who care about tattooing, not by people who just want to pump out a sellable product aimed at people who watch reality tv.

I’m already working on something for volume 2.

OVXAMS95: Amsterdam Tattoo Convention 1995 Video Part 2

This excerpt from the 1995 Amsterdam Tattoo Convention video features Paul Booth, Filip Leu, Mike Wilson, Nalla Smith, Joseph Ari Aloi, Chris Trevino, Paul King, Xed Le Head, Alex Binnie, Curly and Juan Puente.

No audio on this one.

There’s still a little more footage from the convention that needs to be finished up, but it’s really shaky and taking a lot of work to make it usable. Fingers crossed.
