Men dream of women. Women dream of themselves being dreamt of. So starts the 1972 documentary Ways of Seeing by John Berger. There’s plenty of things I dream of: the Mets winning the World Series, having Buffalo sauce on tap in my home, starting at centerfield for the World Series Mets squadron, having a sandwich or a cocktail named after me, the Misfits getting back together...Riot Fest organizers, are you reading my diary? But certainly the most welcome vision I am visited by on a nightly basis involves the fairer sex (ahem, one girl in particular). When we started planning this issue we didn’t really have a theme, per se. To lift the Inked curtain, each issue we shoot a host of tattooed girls and the best offerings make the magazine—this…

TWISTED METAL. “I’M ON THE COVER OF INKED MAGAZINE!” Kiley Brook exclaimed on her Instagram account (@kileybrookthomas). “This is a dream of mine and I want to thank everyone at Inked for helping making this come true!” Tattoo artist Jayce Cogburn broke our hearts by writing to Kiley, “So I was at the grocery store earlier and got stopped by your grand- parents. Your grandpa started out by telling me he isn’t the biggest fan of tattoos, but after seeing all of mine, they decided they wanted to show me something. They pulled up this photo on their phone and started gushing about how happy they are for you. I just thought I would tell you that your grandparents are super cool people who are very proud of you!” facebook KILEY BROOK Tisha Cronister-Reed…

While most of us wait with bated breath for the dog days of summer to kick in, Ashley Michelle is already there. Every day is a dog day for this animal lover, model, fitness freak and pooch mom, along with her best friend and muse, Kain. “We are basi- cally the same person,” Ashley explains, “but he’s a dog! We are both moody, emotional and needy, and no matter how much we make each other mad I always get puppy cuddles!” It should come as no surprise that her love for her canine cohort would inevitably overlap another passion of Miss Michelle’s, her tattoos. “My dog is a huge part of my world and my support system. He’s my best friend and I wanted a way for him to always be…

If a piece of art entertains you, the creator has fulfilled his or her role as an artist. If a piece of art makes you think, the creator has fulfilled his or her role as an artist. If a piece of art entertains you, moves you to think and inspires you, the creator has transcended the title of artist and has become a steward of mankind. David “Meggs” Hooke is an Australian artist, currently based in LA, whose art feeds the soul of society. Whether he is working on a piece of street art or fine art, his images are eminently moving. Meggs’ painterly style incorporates incredible lettering, realism and amorphous flowing shapes, or as he puts it, “form and abstraction.” His subject matter almost always contains a message on pop culture, environment or…

Hair of the Dog IS THE BAR TATTOO-FRIENDLY? Most definitely! All of my bartenders and my bosses have tattoos. WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE TATTOO? Can I just say my entire left sleeve? I really love it. It’s just a collection of neotraditional artwork that my artist Pete Taylor and I came up with. It’s full of color and bold lines. HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE BAR TO SOMEBODY WHO HAS NEVER BEEN T0 COYOTE UGLY? It’s a saloon-style bar with a “let’s fuckin' party” vibe. Every Coyote Ugly is a little different. You may get wet, you may get spanked or you may lose your bra, but you will get drunk and you will get ugly! IS IT LIKE THE MOVIE? It’s just like the movie! But we like to mention that the bar came first and the movie…

I work as a painter/sandblaster at a shipyard. I’ve been doing it for the past five years! It’s definitely one of the most dirty and difficult jobs I’ve had. But I’ve learned a lot and it’s always entertaining to see the reactions of people who ask me what I do for a living. What are the artistic aspects to your gig? Has it affected the way you interact with tattooers and vice versa? Honestly, it’s not much of an artistic job. We go into…
