Body painting – Wikipedia03.19.18

Body painting, or sometimes bodypainting, is a form of body art. Unlike tattoo and other forms of body art, body painting is temporary, painted onto the human skin, and can last several hours or many weeks (in the case of mehndi or “henna tattoos”) about two weeks. Body painting that is limited to the face is known as face painting. Body painting is also referred to as (a form of) “temporary tattoo”; large scale or full-body painting is more commonly referred to as body painting, while smaller or more detailed work can sometimes be referred to as temporary tattoos.

Body painting with clay and other natural pigments existed in most, if not all, tribalist cultures. Often worn during ceremonies, it still survives in this ancient form among the indigenous people of Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific islands and parts of Africa. A semi-permanent form of body painting known as Mehndi, using dyes made of henna leaves (hence also known rather erroneously as “henna tattoo”), is practiced in India, especially on brides. Since the late 1990s, Mehndi has become popular amongst young women in the Western world.

Many indigenous peoples of Central and South America paint Jagua Tattoos, or designs with Genipa americana juice on their bodies. Indigenous peoples of South America traditionally use annatto, huito, or wet charcoal to decorate their faces and bodies. Huito is semi-permanent, and it generally takes weeks for this black dye to fade.[1]

Body painting is not always large pieces on fully nude bodies, but can involve smaller pieces on displayed areas of otherwise clothed bodies. There has been a revival of body painting in Western society since the 1960s, in part prompted by the liberalization of social mores regarding nudity and often comes in sensationalist or exhibitionist forms.[2] Even today there is a constant debate about the legitimacy of body painting as an art form. The current modern revival could be said to date back to the 1933 World’s Fair in Chicago when Max Factor, Sr. and his model Sally Rand were arrested for causing a public disturbance when he body-painted her with his new make-up formulated for Hollywood films.[3] Body art today evolves to the works more directed towards personal mythologies, as Jana Sterbak, Rebecca Horn, Youri Messen-Jaschin, Jacob Alexander Figueroa or Javier Perez.

Body painting is sometimes used as a method of gaining attention in political protests, for instance those by PETA against Burberry.

Body painting led to a minor alternative art movement in the 1950s and 1960s, which involved covering a model in paint and then having the model touch or roll on a canvas or other medium to transfer the paint. French artist Yves Klein is perhaps the most famous for this, with his series of paintings “Anthropometries”. The effect produced by this technique creates an image-transfer from the model’s body to the medium. This includes all the curves of the model’s body (typically female) being reflected in the outline of the image. This technique was not necessarily monotone; multiple colors on different body parts sometimes produced interesting effects.

Joanne Gair is a body paint artist whose work appeared for the tenth consecutive year in the 2008 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. She burst into prominence with an August 1992 Vanity Fair Demi’s Birthday Suit cover of Demi Moore.[4][5] Her Disappearing Model was part of an episode of Ripley’s Believe It or Not!.[6]

Body painting festivals happen annually across the world, bringing together professional body painters and keen amateurs. Body painting can also be seen at some football matches, at rave parties, and at certain festivals. The World Bodypainting Festival is a week-long festival which originated in 1998 and which has been held in Klagenfurt, Austria since 2017. Participants attend from over fifty countries and the event has more than 20,000 visitors.

Body painting festivals that take place in North America include the North American Body Painting Championship, Face and Body Art International Convention in Orlando, Florida, Bodygras Body Painting Competition in Nanaimo, BC and the Face Painting and Body Art Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Australia also has a number of body painting festivals, most notably the annual Australian Body Art Festival in Eumundi, Queensland[7] and the Australian Body Art Awards.[8]

In Italy, the Rabarama Skin Art Festival (held every year during the Summer and Autumn, with a tour in the major Italian cities), is a different event focused on the artistic side of body painting, highlighting the emotional impact of the painted body in a live performance[9] more than the decorative and technical aspects of it. This particular form of creative art is known as “Skin Art”.[10]

The 1960s supermodel Veruschka is a much appreciated muse for bodypaint artists. Images of her in the book Transfigurations by photographer Holger Trulzsch have frequently been emulated. Other well-known works include Serge Diakonoff’s books A Fleur de Peau and Diakonoff and Joanne Gair’s Paint a licious. More recently Dutch art photographer Karl Hammer has taken center stage with his combinations of body painting and narrative art (fantastic realism)

Following the already established trend in Western-Europe, body painting has become more widely accepted in the United States since the early 1990s. In 2006 the first gallery dedicated exclusively to fine art body painting was opened in New Orleans by World Bodypainting Festival Champion and Judge, Craig Tracy. The Painted Alive Gallery is on Royal Street in the French Quarter. In 2009, a popular late night talk show Last Call with Carson Daly on NBC network, featured a New York-based artist Danny Setiawan who creates reproductions of masterpieces by famous artists such as Salvador Dal, Vincent van Gogh, and Gustav Klimt on human bodies aiming to make fine art appealing for his contemporaries who normally would not consider themselves as art enthusiasts.

Since 2005 the Australian visual artist Emma Hack has been creating photographs of painted naked human bodies that visually merge with a patterned background wall inspired by the wallpaper designs of Florence Broadhurst. Hack is best known for the Gotye music video for the song Somebody That I Used to Know, which uses stop-motion animation body painting and has received over 800 million views on YouTube.[11] Hack now creates her own canvas backgrounds and her work is often featured with live birds, representing nature. Hack’s artworks are exhibited worldwide.

Los Angeles artist, Paul Roustan, is known for his work in body painting and photography which spans both the fine art and commercial worlds. His body painting has garnered numerous awards, including winner of the North American Body Paint Championships.[13]

Many artists work professionally as body painters for television commercials, such as the Natrel Plus campaign featuring models camouflaged as trees. Stills advertising also used body painting with hundreds of body painting looks on the pages of the world’s magazines every year. Body painters also work frequently in the film arena especially in science fiction with an increasing number of elaborate alien creations being body painted.

Syl Verberk (nicknamed ‘syllie faces’) is a commercial body paint artist who, as a two-time European champion and winner of various prizes, is frequently consulted by major companies and theme parks for their advertisements and designs. Other celebrated commercial artists are Guido Daniele, Jean-Paul Bourdier and the Australian company “Human Statue Bodyart”.

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, published annually, has frequently featured a section of models that were body painted, attired in renditions of swimsuits or sports jerseys. Also Playboy magazine has frequently made use of body painted models. In the 2005 Playmates at Play at the Playboy Mansion calendar, all Playmates appeared in the calendar wearing bikinis, but Playmates Karen McDougal and Hiromi Oshima actually appeared in painted-on bikinis for their respective months.

The success of body painting has led to many notable international competitions and a specific trade magazine (Illusion Magazine [14]) for this industry, showcasing work around the world.

Face painting is the artistic application of cosmetic “paint” to a person’s face. There are special water-based cosmetic “paints” made for face painting; people should ask before having face paints applied what products are being used. Acrylic and tempera craft paints are not meant for use on skin and are not acceptable, nor are watercolor pencils or markers. Products not intended for use on skin can cause a variety of issues ranging from discomfort to severe allergic reactions.[15] Just because the product is marked “non-toxic” does not mean it is meant to be used on the skin.

From ancient times, it has been used for hunting, religious reasons, and military reasons (such as camouflage and to indicate membership in a military unit). Recent archaeological research shows that Neanderthals had the capability and tools for face painting; although they are no longer considered a direct ancestor of homo sapiens, they lived alongside them in some areas and it is a reasonable assumption that humanity has painted faces and bodies since the very beginning.

In some forms of folk dance, such as Border Morris, the faces of the dancers are painted with a black pigment in a tradition that goes back to the Middle Ages. In the 18th century cosmetic face painting became popular with men and women of the aristocracy and the nouveau riche,[16] but it died out in Western culture after the fall of the French aristocracy. During the 19th century blackface theatrical makeup gained popularity when it was used by non-black performers to represent black people, typically in a minstrel show.[17] Its use ended in the United States with the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s[18] at about the same time that face painting re-entered the popular culture as part of the hippie movement of the late 1960s, when it was common for young women to decorate their cheeks with flowers or peace symbols at anti-war demonstrations.

Actors and clowns around the world have painted their facesand sometimes bodiesfor centuries, and continue to do so today. More subdued form of face paints for everyday occasions evolved into the cosmetics we know today.

For several decades it has been a common entertainment at county fairs, large open-air markets (especially in Europe and the Americas), and other locations that attract children and adolescents. Face painting is very popular among children at theme parks, parties and festivals throughout the Western world. Though the majority of face painting is geared towards children, many teenagers and adults enjoy being painted for special events, such as sports events (to give support to their team or country) or charity fund raisers. Face painting is also a part of cosplay practice, and is enjoyed yearly by people who dress up as zombies to dance with the annual worldwide “Thrill the World” event on the Saturday before Halloween.

It is common to find if someone is dressed in an animal costume, a black nose will be added alone to give the impression of an animal face and not just body. Sometimes, a full face is added or sometimes none at all.

Most theme parks have booths scattered around where a person can have a design painted on their face. A similar activity is the application of “instant tattoos”, which are paint or ink-based designs that are put on as one unit and removed by means of water, alcohol, soap, or another mild solvent. More elaborate temporary tattoos may be made using stencils and airbrush equipment.

It is common in armies all over the world for soldiers in combat to paint their faces and other exposed body parts (hands, for example) in natural colors such as green, tan, and loam for camouflage purposes. In various South American armies, it is a tradition to use face paint on parade in respect to the indigenous tribes.[19]

As well as paint, temporary tattoos can be used to decorate the body. “Glitter tattoos” are made by applying a clear, cosmetic-grade glue (either freehand or through a stencil) on the skin and then coating it with cosmetic-grade glitter. They can last up to a week depending on the model’s body chemistry.

Foil metallic temporary tattoos are a variation of decal-style temporary tattoos, printed using foil stamping technique instead of ink. On the front side, the foil design is printed as a mirror image in order to be viewed in the right direction once it is applied to the skin. Each metallic tattoo is protected by a transparent protective film.

Modern water-based face and body paints are made according to stringent guidelines, meaning these are non-toxic, usually non-allergenic, and can easily be washed away. Temporary staining may develop after use, but it will fade after normal washing. These are either applied with hands, paint brush, and synthetic sponges or natural sea sponge, or alternatively with an airbrush.

Contrary to the popular myth perpetuated by the James Bond film Goldfinger, a person is not asphyxiated if their whole body is painted.[20]

Liquid latex may also be used as body paint. Aside the risk of contact allergy, wearing latex for a prolonged period may cause heat stroke by inhibiting perspiration and care should be taken to avoid the painful removal of hair when the latex is pulled off.

The same precautions that apply to cosmetics should be observed. If the skin shows any sign of allergy from a paint, its use should immediately be ceased. Moreover, it should not be applied to damaged, inflamed or sensitive skin. If possible, a test for allergic reaction should be performed before use. Special care should be paid to the list of ingredients, as certain dyes are not approved by the US FDA for use around the eye areagenerally those associated with certain reddish colorants, as CI 15850 or CI 15985or on lips, generally blue, purple or some greens containing CI 77007.[21][22] More stringent regulations are in place in California regarding the amount of permissible lead on cosmetic additives, as part of Proposition 65.[23] In the European Union, all colorants listed under a CI number are allowed for use on all areas. Any paints or products which have not been formulated for use on the body should never be used for body or face painting, as these can result in serious allergic reactions.

As for Mehndi, natural brown henna dyes are safe to use when mixed with ingredients such as lemon juice. However, a commonly marketed product called “black henna”, is not safe to use because the product has been made by mixing natural henna with synthetic black dyes containing PPD, which can cause serious skin allergies, and should be avoided due to the substantial risk of serious injury.[24] Another option is Jagua, a dark indigo plant-based dye that is safe to use on the skin and is approved for cosmetic use in the EU.

Hands and faces can be marbled temporarily for events such as festivals, using a painting process similar to traditional paper marbling, in which paint is floated on water and transferred to a person’s skin. Unlike the traditional oil-based technique for paper, neon or ultraviolet reactive colours are typically used, and the paint is water-based and non-toxic.[25][26]

“Hand art” is the application of make-up or paint to a hand to make it appear like an animal or other object. Some hand artists, like Guido Daniele, produce images that are trompe l’oeil representations of wild animals painted on people’s hands.

Hand artists work closely with hand models. Hand models can be booked through specialist acting and modeling agencies usually advertising under “body part model” or “hands and feet models”.

Body painting features in various media. The popular TV variety show, Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, featured bodies painted with comedic phrases and jokes during transitions. The Pillow Book, a 1996 film by Peter Greenaway, is centred on body painting. The 1990 American film Where the Heart Is featured several examples of models who were painted to blend into elaborate backdrops as trompe-l’il. Skin Wars is a body painting reality competition hosted by Rebecca Romijn that premiered on Game Show Network on August 6, 2014.

SD Tattoo and Body Piercing Rated Best Shop San Diego03.19.18

I have been in tattoo shops all over the US and I have to say Im very impressed with SD Tattoo. The level of care given to overall cleanliness and the owners ideas as for how a tattoo shop should be ran Are without question Top Shelf ! The artists they have on staff are some of the best the west coast has to offer !

I think after looking all over San Diego for the right artist I found one of, if not the best, in one of their new artists, Daniel Pacheco. He is finishing a sleeve on me and while doing it recoloring some older work, I chose to do my left arm in all Viking and Celtic style tribal mixed with some old school tribal that was done 20 years ago.By then apprentice, Chris Garver.

Im in my 40s and consider myself a vet to tattoo shops, and the day to day scene of the shop life I have 35 different pieces from some of East Coasts best artists and also have an older brother who owned tattoo shops in Augusta and in Atlanta. I think I know a good shop from a great one and SD Tattoo Is Great !


My boyfriend and I were looking for a tattoo shop and this one we found. Corei was our artist. We was very welcoming and accepted to make the designs that same day. GREAT art pieces. We then decided we wanted to get the tattoos done the same day and he accepted to take us in. He even stayed a little longer in the shop because there was two of us. And we was also so fun ! Just a chill person who knows what hes doing.

We were so impressed by the cleanliness and the quality of the work! My boyfriend asked for colors in his which were so cool and bright. For me it was my first one and it wasnt even that bad ! We are truly happy with the work and the talent. Even though I live 1 hour and 30 minutes away this will definitely be the place I will come to for my next one. AWESOME job!


I went here on a whim right before leaving the country. I went to get my belly button pierced and everything went way smoother than I couldve ever imagined. Id never even been in a tattoo shop before, let alone get a piercing and everyone was very friendly and accommodating. As far as the actual piercing went, I hyped it up in my mind and was expecting it to be extremely painful and it was almost painless. Just a small pinch and it was all over. Not only was it painless, but the guy who did it, Kevan, made my crooked belly button look straighter. So far about 36 hours later everything is still painless and looks good. If youre considering getting a navel piercing this is your place to go!


I was looking into getting a new tattoo for the first time in 7 years. I researched for months and finally decided on SD tattoo. I looked at all their artist through their website and fell in love with Dannys work. I loved his black n grey and realistic animals. To say I love my tattoo is an understatement. Besides the amazing tattoo I got, Danny was just overall a great person to work with. He even offered me snacks in case I got hungry. I will defiantly be coming back very soon too have Danny do more work!


Slim was absolutely AMAZING! He did everything I asked for and more! The line work is amazing as I only got an outline today! I walked in with no appointment and had started being helped by someone else. When the other artist realized he had an appointment Slim took right over! He asked me questions and continuously showed me what he was drawing so he knew Id be happy! He reassured me that it was okay that I kept changing my mind! He was so gentle and it barely hurt! It was the best tattoo experience Ive ever had and I cant wait to go back and see him again! Thank you again for making my day!


Love this shop! I drive all the way here from Arizona for my tattoos. I only trust the guys here, no one else! I have gotten all my tattoos here done by Tommy. He is an amazing artist, and wonderful at free hand. He definitely takes his time and tries his hardest to do a quality tattoo EVERY time, no matter how big or small. He is willing to work with clients in order to get them a quality tattoo as soon as possible. He is always just as excited for my tattoos as I am! Love this shop and will be going back all the time, not trusting anyone else on the West Coast.


I went to SD Tattoo while visiting San Diego. The shop has a cool tattoo shop vibe, the staff were very friendly and accommodating and big in my book-clean. I walked in on a Saturday afternoon and I was lucky they had a tattooer available to do a fairly big piece for a walk in. The other artists were friendly and offered us water and brought my fianc a chair to sit in by me. My artist was helpful in making my design picture come alive and spent time perfecting the drawing. They looked up designs online and the other artists came over to observe while I was getting my tat. They played music overhead and it was a great experience. There are definitely shops that are less friendly I have been to so I really valued this experience and I would go back if I find myself in SD again needing some ink.


SD Tattoo is, hands down, the best tattoo parlor in San Diego. The shop is extraordinarily clean and is the most professional run shop I have been in. I have a rare condition that requires extra care and I was so impressed that Slim took the time to look up what I have and the best way to deal with it. During our session he was extremely caring and concerned that I was comfortable at all times. His demeanor is so calming and it made me comfortable knowing he genuinely cared about my health and the work he does. He also asked if I was willing to let some of the other artists there watch while he was working on me, and explained why it is so important to listen to your client so as to do the safest, cleanest, best job possible. Since my skin is stretchy Slim had to work on very small portions at a time and constantly check on progress so that my tattoo looked exactly like I wanted. I told him my idea and a few details that I wanted incorporated and he did the most amazing job creating and bringing to life what I wanted. For someone, like me, just starting out on this journey I am so happy to have found SD Tattoo and look forward to many more sessions!

Tattoo Removal Laser Skin Clinic03.19.18

Option 1 Ultra pulse CO2 laser (Exclusive to Laser Clinic)- the latest in effective tattoo removal. The Ultra Pulse CO2 laser is a micro surgical laser beam. This laser has a very definite and precise beam which vapourises the tissues of the skin. In treating the tattoo both the skin and ink is removed layer by layer. Due to the vapourising effect of the laser the skin beneath is left in tact (no stitches required)where no excessive bleeding occurs resulting in a quick healing and recovery time.

After the 1st session up to 30%+/- of the tattoo is removed, there will be a clear yellowish fluid( plasma) that will be evident over the scabbing the treated area should be covered with paraffin gauze when at work etc, but left open to dry out when at home. The area can be cleaned daily with a salt water solution.

Scabbing forms over the area after 2 -4 days(how quickly it forms depends on location and depth of the treatment) this scabbing then flakes off a few weeks later revealing the residual ink beneath, this process needs to be repeated 2 3 more times every 8 weeks+.

Up to 80% of a tattoo can be removed in 1 session on special request, a signed consent form will be required from the patient as the degree of scarring cannot be preempted . The residual ink can be removed a minimum of 10+ weeks later

Due to the powerful nature of the laser an anesthetic injection must be administered before the commencement of the procedure.

The Ultra Pulse CO2 laser at the Laser Clinic Canal Walk is one of a kind in South Africa and has proven to be the most effective laser in complete tattoo removal.

Please call us to book a consultation with the doctor

Exclusively available at LASER CLINIC Canal Walk : Ultra Pulse CO2 laser Tattooremoval

Option 2:Q switchedNd: Yag ACTIVE laser:8 10 sessions are required; 6 8 week intervals between each session; BLACK INK ONLY; minimal to no scarring visible: non invasive procedure; very quick and effective. This specific ACTIVE Yag head has proven to be more intensive than the standard yag head in certain cases( age and location of tattoo) up to +/-45% of the ink is removed in 1 session with no scarring evident as it breaks up the ink without severely opening the skin.

Q switchedNd: Yag ACTIVE laser : tattoo removal 1st session

PLEASE NOTE: A tattoo is ink permanently embedded in the dermis of the skin, to remove it will mean that some form of trauma( like a laser procedure) will have to be administered to the skin in order to remove/ break up the ink. This will change the appearance of the skin cells meaning there will be some form of scar tissue and/or texture difference etc. the degree of scarring depends on the patients natural ability to heal and if the area was treated properly during the healing stage.

25+ True Tattoo Nightmares: Horrible Tattoos at Their Finest03.19.18

WOAH. Is there anything worse than a sucky tattoo? Especially a big, gross one that is particularly prominent on the wearers body? We think not! The best thing to do to avoid a tattoo nightmare is to chose your artist wisely, and be very careful if youre getting lifelike face tattoos as theyre usually anything but.

The biggest fear of anyone that is looking to get a tattoo is the fact that the ink design may not come out exactly the way they wanted and they will be stuck with horrible tattoos forever. While it is an extremely valid fear to have, especially when getting your first tattoo, it is something that you can control if you know exactly how to prepare yourself. First and foremost, to avoid the concept of horrible tattoos, you should always have the design work drawn out for you before the session begins. This way you can see exactly how the tattoo will look once it in inked onto your body. Secondly, it is a good idea to put your tattoo artist through a sense of an interview before you actually book the session. dont be afraid to look through their design book, peep in on a session so that you see firsthand how the ink will look and make sure that their style of ink matches that which you want on your body.

Horrible tattoos come in all shapes, sizes and colors. However, there are plenty of different aspects of what causes a tattoo to become a nightmare. Of course, an artist that is less than talented will play a vital role in how your ink comes out. However, the wrong coloring can also play an effect. Your tattoo designs should look as realistic as possible, even when using fantasy elements.

The line work of the tattoo will also play a vital role in the overall quality of the tattoo design. Most nightmare tattoos are ones that have uneven lines, faulty shading or blank spaces. Just because a person can draw and showcase their creativity and artistic talent, does not mean that they can create an amazing tattoo. While you need to be able to draw in order to tattoo, it is very possible to be able to draw and not be able to tattoo. It is harder than you would think to draw from the various angles of the surface area with a tattoo gun and on skin nevertheless.

Many horrible tattoos are also created due to the lack of attention to details. When using certain design elements, details are everything. For example, tattoos that incorporate statues or portraits will need to include details of the body, face, hands and shadowing that makes the design look real. If there is not enough detail or the line work is a bit off you will be left with a horrible tattoo that is either too dark, not blended enough or at the worst case scenario, looks like it is just a blob of ink that is permanently placed on your skin.

Knowing exactly what you want can make all the difference. While it is okay to give your tattoo artist a bit of creative freedom when it comes to the details, you should always be as specific as possible to avoid any potential error that can occur. Many tattoo nightmares are ones that give too much freedom to the artists. Keep in mind that what you consider a small tattoo, may not be the artists definition of small. Knowing what colors go with your skin tone can also play a huge role. Using dark colors can run the risk of bleeding onto different areas. Using thick lines when thin should be used can also cause a horrible tattoo to be born!

When it comes to the actual design, you may want to keep in mind that some tattoo artists are better at a specific style than others. If you are looking for a new school type of tattoo, you should make sure that the artist you choose does not have an old fashion design style. This may pose a serious problem when it comes to adding the details you want. For example, many tattoo artists are amazing at what they do but may not be able to visualize certain design features. This can be a surefire way to get a horrible tattoo if the tattoo artist does not know what you want. This is where having the drawing done becomes vitally important.

Using pictures to show the tattoo artist what you want is always a good idea. Be a back up as well, this way you are able to show the tattoo artist exactly what you like and more importantly, exactly what you dont like. Be as specific as possible. When having a portrait tattoo done, especially for a loved one or from a photograph, you should be very specific. This will ensure that the memorial tattoo you are looking to create does not become a horrible tattoo that you will regret. Portrait tattoos are one of the hardest tattoos to accomplish, especially because you will already have a pre-existing image of how you know that person or pet looks in real life.

Horrible tattoos can often fall into the simple category of this is just not what I wanted. In these situations, you may find that background elements were added that should not have been, the size of the tattoo should have been rearranged to look more realistic or in most cases, the tattoo is just in the wrong spot on your body. Horrible tattoos can and will be caused by a tattoo not matching the contour of your natural body. For women, this is often the case because the body experiences so many different life changes. When choosing your tattoo design, be sure to account for how the tattoo will stretch and modify when you gain or lose weight or become pregnant.

It is your body. When getting a tattoo you should always ensure that you build a relationship or good vibe with your tattoo artist. This will ensure that the creative juices between the two of you are constantly flowing and that you understand what each other is trying to do. It will also open up the opportunity to ensure you do not get a horrible tattoo just because there was some type of miscommunication between the two of you!

Here are some more horrible tattoos that will help you decide what to stay away from and how to tell your artist before you book your next tattoo session.

Top Tattoo Artists in Southern California | Six Feet Under11.06.17

> View Gallery Corey Miller Owner/Artist Ask premier tattoo artist Corey Miller how he got into the tattoo business, and he will probably tell you it was ‘by hanging around the wrong people.’ And if you have a sense of humor and you get it, he may tell you the real story.

In 1982, a fifteen-year-old Corey Miller was playing drums in a punk rock band and he decided he needed a tattoo. So he carved out his first tattoo on himself using a needle with thread wrapped around it. This inspired Corey to build his own tattooing machine, which consisted of a fish tank pump motor, a bent toothbrush, the tip of a Bic pen, and some guitar string as a needle. He used to carry his homemade contraption around in a Vans shoe box with a bottle of Pelican ink.

By 1983, Corey ventured out to Hollywood and found himself at the first real tattoo parlor he had ever set foot in, Spotlight Tattoo, run by the venerable Bob Roberts. Spotlight Tattoo was the hardest punk rock tattoo shop in Hollywood, and Corey was intrigued by the hand-drawn skulls and other aggressive designs on the walls. And the technology they used impressed him. He knew his days of slinging tattoos out of a shoe box were numbered and that he would soon be hammering out ink with one of the strong machines they were using at Spotlight.

A year later, Corey went to Franco’s, the local tattoo parlor in Ontario, California. Franco was a 360-pound Sicilian with gold teeth, a Mohawk, and a .357 magnum slung in a shoulder harness. Corey and his buddies would go to Franco’s after school to drink beers and do whatever else they wanted to do. By summertime, Corey was drawing designs and taking out the trash at the shop, and Franco and the boys started calling him the shop hand. Franco’s soon closed after what Corey describes as some ‘pretty insane nights of fights, drunkenness, gunfire, arrests, and tattooing,’ but not before Franco sold Corey what he thought was a broken tattoo machine that turned out to work just fine.

Things changed for Corey in 1987 on the night he met tattoo artist Mark Mahoney at a house party. Mahoney was performing his handiwork on some partygoers, and after watching him work, Corey realized there was a whole other level to the tattoo game. He started hanging out at the shop where Mahoney worked. The shop was called Fat Georges Tattoo Gallery, and it was located in a tough neighborhood in La Puente, California. Over time, Corey started hitting Fat George up for a job as a tattoo artist. At long last, Fat George gave Corey his big break. Mahoney was making plans to open a new shop out in Los Angeles, and that meant that a chair was opening up. All of a sudden, Corey Miller had his first real job inking tattoos.

Corey turned twenty-one at Fat Georges in 1987, and as a young man in a gang-related neighborhood, the busy tattoo parlor just may have saved his life. While his friends were getting busted for anything from drunk driving to serious felonies, Corey was busy in the safe haven of the shop inking up to ten tattoos a day. Then another turning point came for Corey Miller in 1989 on the day Dick Warsocki walked into the shop.

Warsocki was known for his beautiful Native American fine-line tattoos. When Warsocki walked into Fat Georges that day he saw Corey, who just happened to be hammering out an amazing Indian Head tattoo on a customers back. Warsocki complimented him on the design, told Corey he was headed to New Orleans for a tattoo convention, and asked if Corey wanted to go along and crash on his hotel floor. Corey took him up on the offer, and at the convention in New Orleans, Corey found a whole new realm of tattoo artistry.

He met famed artists such as Guy Atchison and Eddie Deutsche. They tattooed with a style that Corey says had ‘absolutely no boundaries’ and that was ‘limited only to imagination.’ Corey also met one of his closest friends at the convention, Suzanne Fauser. The trip was the beginning of his annual voyages to Ann Arbor, Michigan, over the next twelve years. In fact, his career would take Corey Miller all over the United States, from Los Angeles to New York to Hawaii, and to a host of worldwide destinations such as Canada, France, Amsterdam, and Japan. He would eventually become one of the most sought-after purveyors of ink in modern times.

But lets get back to our story. It was 1989, and upon his return from that first tattoo convention in New Orleans, Corey got a break from the one and only Jack Rudy, who gave him a job at Good Time Charlies Tattooland in Anaheim, California. Good Time Charlies was an institution in the tattoo world. Artists such as Mark Mahoney, Freddy Negrete, and Dick Warsocki had previously worked at Good Time Charlies, and it was there that Corey got the chance to work with Jack Rudy and Mike Brownartists whom Corey collectively refers to as ‘the Kings of Black and Grey.’ Corey considers himself fortunate to have learned some important technical skills from Brown and to have seen masterpieces created by the hand of Jack Rudy, his friend and mentor.

In 1991, Corey Miller and two business partners opened Optic Overdrive, the first tattoo shop in Upland, California. The shop lasted about two years and, in addition to drilling some amazing tattoos, also hosted an unforgettable shootout on the front porch. Unfortunately, Corey soon had to throw one of his partners out, and the other took an extended vacation as a guest of the State. Soon, Corey was back to traveling and, when at home, tattooing in his basement. It was in that dank, underground dungeon that the name ‘Six Feet Under’ was born. Within three years, and after tattooing out of the back of a barbershop, Corey opened his own tattoo parlor, complete with a staff of two artistshimself and Henry Powell. Then on April Fools Day in 1997, Corey Miller opened up shop in his own building in downtown Upland, and that is where the Six Feet Under Tattoo Parlor is today.

Looking back on his formative years, Corey feels lucky to have experienced the best and the worst of the tattoo business. He never had a formal apprenticeship, as many tattoo artists do, but instead got his education by ‘going on my own and falling on my face and doing it all again on my own terms.’

His career has run the gamut from the street shop of Fat Georges to the ‘Kustom Klass’ of Good Time Charlies Tattooland, and everywhere in between.

For Corey, a couple of the highlights of his career include being sought out by two incredible artists. The first was when he tattooed James Hetfield of Metallica and designed a dragon for Hetfields Gibson Les Paul guitar. The second highlight was when custom motorcycle artist Jesse James asked him to tattoo the $100 bill on Jamess back.

But every tattoo Corey Miller designs, whether for customers famous or unknown, is itself a unique and timeless work of art. In addition, he continues to break new ground by engineering cutting-edge tattooing tools. He has seen a lot of changes during his more than thirty years experience in the business, and looking into the next millennium, the sky is the limit for Corey Miller and his house of original tattoo design, the Six Feet Under Tattoo Parlor.

Henry Powell has been tattooing since 1989 and has done just about everything you can think of. That includes original pieces, classics, religious, portraits, cover-ups, and original characters. The love for tattoos started for Henry when he was just 15 when he would stay up and watch a friend do tattoos out of his garage with a home-made machine. Henry was instantly hooked and could not wait to get his first tattoo. This is when Henry first ran into Corey Miller at the young ripe age of 16 at Fat Georges. Corey unknowingly tattooed a minor and started a new lifestyle for Henry. After this tattoo, Henry spent countless hours hanging around TattooLand, after Corey moved there, so he could study the artists who worked there. Once Henry knew this was the life-style he wanted he decided to try things out for himself.

It all started back in a small room that he called home with a handmade rotary machine. Innocent bystanders volunteered their skin in return for artwork. After a little more experience and much better equipment, Henry ventured into Hollywood and started working at a famous street shop. This is when Henry gradually grew into his own style that specializes in bright colors and black and gray. After a while, Henry wanted to further expand his career and around the same time was offered the opportunity to work with his friend and mentor Corey Miller at Optic Overdrive. Corey took him under his wing and showed him the dark side. This is the time in his career that he picked up all of his technical skills once he was working side by side with Corey. After closing the doors there after an unmentionable mishap, Henry had the opportunity to relocate to Hollywood. This is the same time that Corey was building Six Feet Under. While in Hollywood he worked for Gil Montie at Tattoo Mania. Henry had the opportunity to work along side some of the best artist which included Mark Mahoney and Gil Montie. Henry has truly grown as an artist because of these various experiences with such talented artists.

Once Six Feet Under opened it doors back in 1997, Henry joined up with Corey again and has been collaborating on pieces with Corey ever since. With the freedom any artist would want, Henry has been able to fully explore all styles of tattooing and painting. He is known for his Asian stylized tattoos and religious pieces. If you visit the Shop you can experience Henrys other artistic talents including paintings in oil, acrylic, and water colors.
