Technology is on my side

I bought a new camera, new iPhone on the way, I have a laptop... There is very little reason I cannot update this blog every week. Here is my effort for the week... http://www.jetblackstains.com/2011/10/street-shop.html

The List

I don't get tattoos impulsively; my current financial situation and personal life just doesn't allow for it. That gives me plenty of time to consider who I want to be tattooed by on trips, at conventions, or on my birthday (the the three times I set aside for tattoos). I started thinking about my next tattoo (always one tattoo ahead usually) and decided to come up with a list. The list is in no particular order, as fate decides who'll be closest when one of the three opportunities comes up. -St

10 Questions with Inked Photography

First let me say that I love the interviews here. I like how they are personal and the stories that are told. Very well done. But for me, sometimes and hour can be too long. I try to find artist interviews often. Some are good, some are bad. So me with my travels and the people I meet I decided to try and take a stab at this blog thing. By no means am I any type of writer but I plan on giving this a shot. I call it, "10 questions with Inked Photography". Click the link and let me know y

Avery Taylor & The Three Questions

One of the many great things that have occurred since we started LST is that I have met many new people through the site. Some I've had the opportunity to then meet face-to-face while others not yet, though I hope to. [MENTION=275]Avery Taylor[/MENTION] is one of those people I look forward to meeting the next time I find myself up his way or if he comes down here. Not only do we share an enjoyment for tattoos but we also work in similar professions so every now and then we private message bac

Part 2.... Been a year. . .

With Keet D'Arms in the basement... then when we were at our wits end, we ended up being layed over in Houston to fly into Tampa, during that show, only to not make it out of the room for two days straight, I finally ended up renting a car, and driving back to Jacksonville... Only to wake up the next day on the verge of a nervous break down and none other then my Mother waking me up to get me out the front door to leave Richard, I went home on the premiss that I needed a break to rest. Only I

So. . . It has been a year... Time Flies. Part 1

It's been nice being back in the personal space of our own. And it's been nice to actually put the stuff you pay for to use for a minute before packing it all up and leaving on yet another road trip across the states... I am super grateful that I got to do all the shit I got to do, it was a "blast" for lack of a better term. Coming up on the SFO show this year, and good lord that time has flown by. I mean it was only this past 25th Richard and I got married. It's been a surreal last week or so

one fucking year.

So....One fucking year already? I can't believe it has been that long. seems to fly by with everything going on you never really keep track of the beginning point? At least I never do, but thank god somebody paid attention because I sure wasn't. When loch told me about it I was surprised to say the least. I would like to thank everybody who has participated in this place, from the blogs, to photos, to the stories and even bumble nuts who i think may secretly be marrying ursula, "they really ha

Dan Dringenberg Tattoo Artist Interview - (sorry for the delay!)

Dan Dringenberg hails from an era of tattooing that was scary, violent and otherwise hostile. I started tattooing in this period, cutting my teeth with a big biker guy named Miller. I'm sure that many people will understand when I say that Dan has changed tattooing in many ways, but most notably with his black back pack. It maybe true that every corner of this business is currently saturated with suppliers ripping each other off, but it wasn't like that back then. Dan was one of the first p

Frith Street Tattoo, August 2011

I shot this video over the course of a few weeks in August 2011. I wanted to show what it's like at Frith Street Tattoo. We try to be a no-nonsense tattoo shop and just do the best tattoos we can. I didn't intend to make an introduction to the shop, or an introduction to tattoo shops n general, which is why there is no 'talking head' shots, interviews, sections about the staff, location, history or a voice over. This for people who know of us or our work. While there is a social side to our

Been trying to put a nice blog entry together...

Ended up with a majorly long post... So, after a few readings, I have like 4 or five posts to do... So for now, a quick check in with all the last sparrows... We took off from Jax Beach, FL to go to the Masters of Tattooing Show in Inglewood/LA that Permanent Mark produced along with Charlie Roberts... Well... We ended up: Making it to the Masters, (post soon about that show itself), then trying to hang out and get some work and other business related stuff tied up and as per usual, Hollywood

    • I have not quizzed my clients on their supplements usage so I cannot comment on that aspect. One thing I have noted in regards to blowouts is last year I was doing an unusually large amount of thigh tattoos. I was experiencing blowouts consistently and it had me alarmed. It didn’t matter how gentle I was.  I tried setting my Spectra Xion machine to a softer hit setting and it did not help. One day I tried using a harder hit setting and suddenly the blowouts in the thigh area stopped.
    • I take fish oil. Are these supplements bad for tattoos in general or only during healing?
