Welcome to our Art Issue. As with every installment of Inked, we ho--pe to inspire you. Consider the blank space above. What would you put there? For every issue we splash pristine pages with photos, art and words, but what would you do? Like a graffi ti artist gazing at a virgin wall or a tattoo artist peering at an open spot of skin, sometimes the most inspirational space is a blank one. Among those who have transformed the following pages is Rubin415 (1), a graffi ti writer whose designs were pro- jected onto Inked Girl Ginzilla and photographed by Rebecca Handler (4). Figurative artist Audrey Ryan (5) was one of the amazing talents who reimagined our Cervena Fox shoot with deft brushstrokes. Miguel Santiago (8) not only drew the below…

NIKKI NICHOLE, LAST ISSUE’S “MY FAVORITE INK” CHECKS IN.How has life changed since Inked? I’ve expanded my creative interests and I’m acting. I’m also the Executive Producer for a film that’s in pre-production. Any new ink since? Yes. I don’t think I could go more than three months without getting a new tattoo. I’m addicted... Or committed. What do you want for Christmas? Honestly, all I want for Christmas is a million dollars. That’s not too much to ask for, is it? Other than beer pong (check out her skills @official.nikki.nichole) do you have any other secret talents? Does flip cup count? Haha. Just kidding, but I do have a few hidden talents... They’re secret for a reason. facebook COVER Lechonsillo As a Mexican, that’s an awesome picture! Kareen Nuhh She’s such a bad…

brittany hetzer

A great tattoo is a group effort. It takes a dedicated, patient client and the right artist for the job to create quality work. It’s a concept that tattooed bombshell Brittany Hetzer has truly taken to heart. “I always wanted to get a tattoo for the people I love,” Hetzer tells us. “I knew what I wanted, and I knew I wanted it black-and-grey. However, I didn’t know who I wanted to tattoo it. One day I drove to Dallas to go see a show, and while I was there I met Rudy Hetzer, who just happened to be a badass black-and-grey artist. He showed me his work and shortly after that he started sketching out my sleeve. Now we’re married and have a beautiful daughter. I love how the…

keeping it real

Art, in its very nature, is divisive. It serves as a method to both evoke and provoke, to reel in those who get it and confound those who don’t. Miguel Santiago —or as the internet knows him, Trafart—exemplifies this dualism as he passes seamlessly from the world of street art to the world of fine art. Hailing from Spain and now residing in Texas, this actual man of two worlds has the ability to create works of dynamic depth and bold contrast whether it’s with the broad stroke of a spray can or the slight, almost subliminal flourish from the tip of a colored pencil. The artist describes the continental move that caused his shift in perspective: “Leaving Spain made me realize the real competitiveness to be faced and has…

rock the cash bar

Providence, RI CHRISTINA COOK, AKA “CREEPS” OF ROCK & RYE, SERVES UP $2 COLT 45 S AND GOOD VIBES. HOW WOULD YOU D E S C R IBE ROCK & RYE? Rock & Rye is an American trashglam whiskey bar. We just want people to have a great time with us and their friends, leaving them with memories to come back and party time and time again. Honestly there’s never a dull night. Weekends are always crazier than weekdays but you’ll never leave without a funny story to tell. WHAT’S TH E TATTOO SCENE L I KE IN PROVIDENCE? Awesome! You’re pretty much guaranteed to see a tattooed person anywhere you walk nowadays, but it’s like kids comparing sticker collections the way people interact when they’re showing off their skin.

nico tortorella is not a tattoo artist…

Italian-Americans fit into two stereotypes: Italians from New Jersey, whose mother can cook better than yours; and Italians from the rest of the country (their mothers also cook better than yours). Nicolo Luigi Tortorella is one of the latter, born and raised in the northern suburbs of Chicago. “In my household, people were always cooking,” he remembers. Sunday dinner wasn’t a tradition his family could easily give up when Tortorella moved to Hollywood, his parents soon followed. “My parents moved out to LA when I was 22 and both got their medical [marijuana] cards,” Tortorella said. Even though Mr. and Mrs. Tortorella didn’t smoke pot while their sons were growing up they found themselves living in Los Angeles with “40 plants growing in their backyard.” They sold the green to dispensaries and their…
