Oh, I do love a good submission from a friend! My literary partner in crime, Mr Patrick Sullivan, sent me this really cool video before that I’m amazed I’ve never seen online.
This video, which was made in 2003, features two massive names in tattooing: Bob Roberts and Ed Hardy. They both did a really cool exhibit in 2003 called ‘Exhibition Match: Paintings to Palpate Your Inner Eye’. In this video, they talk about tattooing from their own experiences. It’s really great to see, and it’s just as great as you would expect from two of the biggest names in tattooing. It’s insightful and fun to watch, especially if you’re a bit of a geek like myself with this kind of thing. There’s a lot in there about their own art, how they met and how tattooing is now compared to when they were just meeting in 1976.
The video can be seen below, and I would seriously recommend you watch it. Bob and Ed are absolutely fantastic artists, and the video is very well made. I may be a little biased since Bob Roberts is one of my all time favourite tattooers, but you can take a look below and make up your own mind.
