It’s as American as a ’50 Merc with a candy apple metal flake flame job on its front quarter rumblin’ beside a Harley-Davidson Shovelhead on an endless stretch of Midwestern highway. That’s how most people feel about the car and the motorcycle and their place in American culture. However, we know that the choice of rides varies from state to state, city to city, town to town and person to person, so in this special “Moto”issue of INKED we go from 0 to 60 in more than 100 different makes, models and eras! Everything from Lamborghinis to gassers to weekend road cowboys to Indians. And it’s not just the rides we’re featuring here, no sir! As one would imagine, the people behind the wheels and atop the seats are as varied…

THE SEX ISSUE As you would imagine our SEX issue is the most controversial, yet consistently the most popular. A perfect example of art reflecting real life. If you missed this past issue you missed a lot. We tried to deliver some of the most diverse coverage of the tattoo culture meeting the world of erotica – everything from prostitutes to sexy Hollywood celebrities to teenage cam girls.

salavat fidai

While many artists go big in terms of canvas size, one multimedia sculptor has reached international success on a small scale. He’s gained a loyal social media following for trans-forming pencil lead into unbelievable sculptures, carving away precise details at a fraction of a millimeter. For the past four years, he has mastered his craft by replicating a number of recognizable symbols, images and themes found in modern popular culture. Take a look at how Salavat Fidai began his art career, his process for creating a sculpture, and which piece has been the most challenging so far. When did you first develop a love for art? I painted a lot in my childhood. Then there was a big break for 30 years. I returned to art at 40 years old. Do you…

one photographer   400 car interiors

“I want to create the biggest car interior collection in the world.”— Ervin Boer Ervin Boer is a 28-year-old automotive photographer from Romania who has spent the last year shooting the interiors of 400 automobiles—everything from Lamborghinis to rust buckets. He is armed with a Canon EOS 50 Mark III mounted with a 12mm wide-angle lens when shooting from the safety of car show floors, celebrity driveways and construction sites, and a GoPro when he hits the hot asphalt of Romania’s picturesque city of Timisoara. When did you start shooting? I started shooting as a hobbyist back in 2009. How did you get into photography? When I was 17 my parents bought me a Sony Ericsson K810i phone that had a 3.2MP camera with image stabilization. It was top-of-the-line for that time period.…

belly bars & chained humps

It’s the last weekend of the summer, the sun is slowly setting over the mountains, and the smell of exhaust fumes hangs heavy in the air. The chorus of Queen’s “We Will Rock You” blasts through the speakers over the roar of engines. It does the job of getting the spectators pumped up. As the cars drive out onto the muddy track, you can feel the tension in the air. “Five! Four! Three! Two! One!” The crowd screams along with the announcer. At the wave of the green flag, the first two cars make contact and the mud starts to fly. Smoke billows out of the smashed Olds Custom Cruiser and the crowd goes wild. The Demolition Derby has just begun, and the spectators know they are in for a night of…

white hot head lights!

When did you start getting tattooed? I actually got my very first tattoo on my 18th birthday! I had been wanting to get tattooed for years but of course the law stated you had to be 18. When did you decide to become heavily tattooed? I started getting more tattoos around the age of 21. I had plans to just have half sleeves. I was already doing hair and I knew that my profession would allow me to look however I wanted. Still, I wasn’t sure about being as tattooed as I am now. As soon as I started getting more coverage, my artist stuck one on my forearm and from that day on I kind of just said "fuck it." I still have no idea why anyone thinks that hard…
