A nation divided on so many social and political issues. The MeToo movement. Endless scandals and devastating natural disasters. Unfortunately, the list could go on and on. Looking back, this has been a pretty darn tumultuous year, and, as it comes to a close, we hope that all of you came through with minimal battle scars. Okay, now that all those nasty bits are out there, let’s start to look on the bright side of things. We made it through the storm known as 2018, and it’s time to take a deep breath, hang with family and friends, celebrate whatever holiday you choose and maybe… get some new ink. And what better way to get inspired about a new tattoo than by enjoying the copy of INKED magazine you hold in…

INKED FOR A CAUSE The world of tattoo culture has a reputation of being comprised of a bunch of badasses. Well, like any subculture, it has its share of hardcore dudes and dames that will look to throw-down at the drop of a hat. However, with a tattooed population that now comprises almost 50% of the people living in the United States, we now have representatives from virtually every facet of society… and that includes people who were struggling, are struggling and may be on the path to dealing with a host of mental and physical issues. This issue of INKED was our way of giving back and extending hope and inspiration to all who need it…in fact, we all need it.

damsels without distress

Las Vegas is the home of many beautiful women; however, none are quite as magical as those created by Kurtis Rykovich who pulls his inspiration from fairy tales, horror, comics and the furthest depths of his imagination. However, while his Damsels are the focus of his career as an artist, there’s more to Rykovich than just the dozens of beautiful women he’s brought to life. Take a look at how this painter found his footing in the art world, why he chooses to live in a fantasy universe and which leading lady will become his next muse. When did you first develop an interest in art and do you have a professional education in painting? I’ve had an interest in art for as long as I can remember. I was always drawing,…

tyla yaweh

What was the inspiration behind the name Tyla Yaweh? I was looking for a name that really represented me. I looked up the Yaweh and it stands for the first breath of air that created life. I feel like my music is a fresh breath of air. What was the catalyst that made you pick up and head to Los Angeles? I grew up in Florida and life was crazy. I was selling drugs, getting into trouble and just needed a change. I chose to take my music seriously and thought, what better place to pursue your dreams? What was life like the first year in California? It was fun in the beginning. I experienced so much stuff. The vibes, the people, being able to walk into a store to buy weed… it was new…

How did your childhood in Minnesota shape your career today? I was born in Chicago, then moved to Minnesota at age five and spent the majority of my life there until moving to LA after graduating high school. It was cool, but cold as hell in the winter. But the cold kept me out of trouble and locked in the gym. When did you first start getting tattooed and what led you to become heavily tattooed? I got my first tattoo at 15. I went to get a basketball and since I was under age, they would only allow me to get something religious. So I got a cross on my left bicep. After my first one, all I could think about was what I’m getting next. I knew I wanted to be…

What are the stories behind your snowflake and star tattoos? Growing up my dad traveled a lot and he would always bring us gifts when he came home. He got me this mobile that hung in my room for a long time and I decided to get the star from it. As for my snowflake, my husband and I both got tattoos after we got married. He’s a really big fan of Buddy Wakefield, and one of our friends did a reading of a Buddy Wakefield poem during our ceremony, and in the poem there was a quote that mentions a snowflake living with a fingerprint, and I thought that was such a sweet way to describe two different people. What would it take for you to get Pam Poovey’s back tattoo? It’s…
