Skin Deep Tattoo Magazine 273

Skin Deep has long been the UKs best selling tattoo magazine - and just because we're having fun for 13 issues a year (that's once every 4 weeks) doesn't mean we're not taking it very seriously indeed. Each issue we publish profiles, interviews and features with the leading tattooists and tattoo artists working in the world today together with exciting new talent. Alongside of this, we focus on the tattoo lifestyle and all it contains, coverage from the international convention scene, art features from those who embrace the tattoo ethic or find inspiration within it, reader profiles, news, reviews, competitions, letters and every issue also comes with a free supplement.

weird scenes inside the goldmine

I went to see A Monster Calls last week. When I booked the tickets online, I found a bunch of seats that didn’t have anybody else sitting in close proximity and hoped for the best. Sometimes things stay that way and sometimes they don’t. This was one of those times when they don’t and I found myself sitting next to a very large man who ate from 57 varieties of rustling bags like I grow my hair. Non-stop and as if The Gods might take it all away if you don't stay vigilant. In such circumstances, it’s very hard for me to keep my mouth shut—not as hard as it was for him, but hard all the same. He wasn't alone either. It appeared to be a family outing and apples never fall…

dating ink

There’s a new website out in the world for those looking very specifically for tattooed relationships. datingink.com currently has over 10,000 members and with iOS and android apps to come very soon, it looks set to become one of the fastest growing British-born dating apps. The site is the brainchild of tattoo model Jemma Lucy and is making quite a buzz out in the world INK AT WORK Last month, we noticed the big news sites were starting to treat tattoos with a little more dignity than they have in recent years. Over at the Guardian there’s a particularly good page that looks into diversity and actually speaks to people with tattoos who are experiencing positive or negative comments at work. Admittedly, most of the comments are negative—or at least ‘downtrodden’— but…

tattoo of the month

I fall in love with tattoos easily. I fall out of love with them even faster, so when something hangs around in my head for more than a couple of days, it’s going to be something I remember for a long time. Such is the case with this from one of my favourite artists in the world, Léa Nahon and her buddy Köfiat the newly opened L’Usine Tattoo in Belgium. What’s good about it? Hell, what’s not good about it. The controlled chaos, the masterclass in how to make one colour do the work of an entire colour palette, the skill of the actual art and the concept behind it… I could carry on but instinct tells me there will be as many who hate it as love it out there…
