This is a little late, since we needed to give you an update on the Macmillan Fundraiser last week. Unfortunately, though, I’m not feeling too great today, so this is a ‘re-blog’ from the Total Tattoo website:
Issue 118 of Total Tattoo magazine is on the shelves now.
In this months issue we introduce the amazing Berlin based Wendy Pham, an Australian talent producing world-class art at conspiracy ink. Hard working British talent Joe Frost from the Odd fellows collective is one of the new school of illustrative based tattooists revolutionizing tattooing in the UK.
We talk with lettering supremo Big Sleeps, all the way from the streets of L.A. to the convention circuit of the world. Our Private view section this month comes from Lucy O’Connell of Red tattoo and piercing in Leeds.
We have 3 vintage shaving mugs courtesy the Vince Ray Experience to give away check out their other goodies on http://www.thevincerayexperience.com
Our huge Gallery Plus section is packed full of inspirational tattoos. Featured categories in this month’s magazine are: In Bloom, Animal Magic, Toons, Hands Up. This month we have been out and about visiting UK Shows in Liverpool, and North lakes while Travelin’ Mick brings us all the news from the Taiwan Tattoo Convention and Lars Krutak travels to Papua New Guinea to discover the disappearing tattoos of the coastal women.
A great column from Marisa Kakoulas on the topic of celebrity tattoos and Nigel Kurt makes it into the TTM mug shot hot seat. This months ‘In Focus’ shines the spotlight on the Chester based studio Golden Dragon. We check out the portfolios of super realistic tattooist Alex Rattray and the bold illustrative designs of Jim Gray.
It is a sizzerling summer issue, not to be missed.
