The staff here at INKED like to theme our issues. The Moto issue, the Sex issue, the Inked for a Cause issue, to name a few. When the meetings began to determine the theme of the issue you hold in your hands right now, the room was divided into three camps. We all believed we couldn’t be farther apart in how to bring the group of people we wanted to showcase in this issue under one coherent title. As the meetings progressed and the arguments escalated—even a few pencils were tossed in anger, yes, working at INKED can be a dangerous experience—we realized we were actually all talking about the same type of issue: a Lifestyle issue. So, please appreciate the blood, sweat and tears that were experienced in putting together…

THE MOTO ISSUE The hottest issue, next to the Sex issue, would be the Moto issue. That’s why we bring it out in the summer—you can feel the heat on the streets already. Hot rides with even hotter babes. Anything from a new cover girl, to a heavily tattooed motorcycle cop, to out-of-this-world artists from around the globe. An issue you didn’t want to miss. According to our fan mail, we got the job done once again. facebook MARK WOSGERAU Melissa Gil Wow! Just wow. I guess I need to book a trip to Denmark now to come see this guy. His work is out of this world. Great photos! Where do you guys find all these incredible artists? Sven Pikar Holy Cannoli! I had no idea this is possible. This dude is so talented. Nick…

For the last couple of decades—that’s right, decades—the city of Detroit, Michigan, has been on the receiving end a lot of bad press, some of it deserved and some of it media hype. The Motor City, which it is still referred to by many, was America’s hub for the auto industry, and although it may no longer be in its heyday after going through two huge auto industry downsizings, it still kicks out over 15 million automobiles each year. Unfortunately, one other moniker the city has been shingled with is Murder City, and statistics have repeatedly deemed it the most violent city in America, with over 13,000 violent crimes last year, including 303 murders in 2016 and 267 in 2017. We spoke to Doug Schwartz, an artist and Michigan native who was…

matt zingler

Meet Matt Zingler, hip-hop’s most misunderstood power player. At 29, Zingler owns the largest hip-hop festival in the world, hosting over 500,000 attendees annually and taking a local Miami concert to more than 10 international markets in less than four years. Looking at his Instagram, @mattzingler you would assume that Matt lives the typical playboy live-fast-die-young lifestyle. We decided to dig a little deeper and ask him 21 questions to see if my assumptions were true. Favorite location to have a meeting? Strip club Favorite restaurant in the world? Popeyes. Their biscuits with some honey on them are on fire. Favorite tattoo? The money sign on my balls One celebrity you would let tattoo you? Post Malone How old were you when you got your first tattoo? 15 One exotic animal you want to own in your…

julius arriola

My name is Julius Arriola. To most of the world, I’m known as Julius Cvesar, and @ juliuscaesar on Instagram. I was born in Oakland, California and raised in the San Francisco Bay area. I come from a middle-class household, with my mom being the daughter of Filipino immigrants—my grandfather, Gerry Arriola, gained citizenship after fighting in the US Army during the Korean War. I was born in the 1980s and spent much of my youth staying with my grandparents while my mom was at work. I idolized my grandfather and can vividly remember him walking around the house shirtless with all his gold chains and tattoos showing. My favorite was his Tropic Lightning Infantry hand tattoo he got during the war. From those moments, I knew that when I grew…

I was born and raised in Queens, New York, so naturally I grew up inspired by the streets, and the urban “scene” that came with being from NYC. With that street culture came the tattoo culture and so was the hustle. My entry into the working world was at a mortgage company, but I eventually found my calling in the jewelry business. After leaving the mortgage company, I ended up working for my family’s jewelry business, and that’s when I realized how far the jewelry game could eventually bring me. I got to work, first creating diamond rosary necklaces with Jewish stars and Hamsa symbols. Everyone has their Jesus pieces, but I wanted to be able to do a piece with Moses and still stay true to Jewish beliefs. I was…
