Don & Deb Yarian Tattoo Artist Interview


People throw around the terms "godfather" and "king" all too much in reference to tattooers. Don and Deb Yarian however deserve more than a grandiose title. I see them in a protective honorable roll in tattooing tied deep in tradition and history.

They are not lost in overnight hype or international stardom. Instead they tattoo in a real shop and have taught all of their kids to tattoo. Keeping it a family tradition that seems to work so well for them.

This is why I refer to them as the mother and father of tattooing in our times. I have had so many great interactions with them and always leave feeling better than I was in the beginning. People like this are attractive to me. It becomes infectious. Good will and good intentions go far in this world of struggle and savagery.

I am so grateful for the time they gave me to do this. It was my first time interviewing a couple. I enjoyed the story so much and am glad that the world can hear it now. I'm sure it will be a better place every time it's sounds bless the air. Thank you in the most humble and grateful way to Don and Deb. I hope you find this as great as I do.

-Scott

      Hi; we are invited to watch these videos; and certainly there is something rather special about calligraphy tattoos with wording - often in simple black - in various, ornate possibilities, as Katie S. speaks of, here.

      I think that everything is cool and correctly said, just one more important point, everyone has different fantasies and ideas.  And only a good specialist can give useful advice!  Some people want a kingpin tattoo supply for themselves, but at the same time they do not understand and do not know some of the nuances.  I believe that a good specialist is the one who can give advice and recommendations to the client.  Then you will definitely be satisfied with the result.
