Color Outside the Lines – INKED07.09.20

Want a pop culture tattoo that pushes the bounds of the imagination? Look no further than Sbastien Coston or, as Instagram knows him, Shooby. Shooby honed his craft in the suburbs of Paris and has won the world over with his impressive approach to color realism. Over the last decade, Shooby has not only mastered black-and-grey and color realism, but sets himself apart from the pack by expertly blending the two styles into one tattoo. We caught up with the talented tattooer to learn how hes perfected his techniques over time and why hell never stop hustling to create better tattoos for his clients.

My first tattoo was done on my wifes youngest brother 11 years ago, when my wife was on a trip to Argentina. I had just bought a machine from a friend who was a tattoo artist, and he gave me some advice about tattooing and told me about all the rules of hygiene. So, I asked my brother if he wanted my first tattoo and he said, Ok, my brother. I tattooed him on the table in my living room and did a Roman numeral VII on his right buttock, which took two hours to do. I shared the photo of my first tattoo on Facebook and my wife was surprised to see that her boyfriend tattooed her brother on the living room table. Since that day, I had only one desire and that was to tattoo again (and again). I retried that adventure and its what made me the artist I have become today. From the start, Ive only been looking to continue the adventure.

I work in Lagny-sur-Marne, which is 25 minutes from Paris and 10 minutes from Disneyland. In Paris, there are a lot of tattoo artists with varied styles, like in many big cities. There aren't many of us practicing realism in or close to Paris, and from what I can see in Parisian salons, they have more demand for black work.

The technique of mixing black-and-grey and color requires strong contrast to make the tattoo beautiful and durable over time. I try to put enough black in the tattoo so that the whole design is easily readable. For the grey, I use a mix of grey wash and opaque grey. The colors are saturated as for a classic color piece.I think people can go wrong with this technique in several ways. Either they dont saturate their colors enough or they cut their colors with water. As a result, the tattoo will be bland and age badly. Sometimes their greys are also too light, and that will cause a problem because the colors will stand out too much by comparison. To do this technique, you need to understand contrast.

I find my inspiration for tattoos in films, from the work of tattoo artists I follow on social media, in museums and at art exhibitions. But what inspires me the most are the photos. I try to find the best possible references for my designs by choosing photos with strong contrasts and a good balance between dark and light. Then I combine photos together and try several possible combinations for each project until I arrive at a result that I like. Often Im lucky I can do something that I like quickly, but sometimes it takes much longer.

I learned to draw when I was young. I drew at school instead of doing the required exercises and was often punished for that. I drew as soon as I could and my mother helped me a lot. Shes a painter who paints realistic still lifes. Before being a tattoo artist, I sold my paintings and when I became a tattoo artist, I tattooed in all the different styles the first years. That taught me a lot technically, such as making beautiful lines, solid black, colors, greys and gradients. I waited five years to start realism. When I felt ready, I started to propose projects to my clients and realized that it was really very complicated to create realistic rendering, especially in color. This type of realism requires a lot of concentration, working days are longer, creating textures is difficult, and it requires a lot of time.

Here’s How to Make a DIY Temporary Tattoo Using a Pen and Toothpaste – Men’s Health07.09.20

You can flex your artistic muscle and give yourself a tattoo with some simple items stashed away in your house. No, not ink and a pin for an ill-advised stick-and-poke. More like toothpaste and a pen for a sick tat.

Thats right, commitment haters: This artistic ink is only temporary.

This viral YouTube tutorial, which has more than 38 million views, demonstrates how to use a pen and toothpaste (plus a few extras) to make a DIY temporary tattoo. While the hack is basically made for a boring quarantine-night-in, the DIY temporary ink is also perfect for testing out new tattoo designs before you call up your choice parlor for the real deal. Plus, the result is waterproof and all.

As the video outlines, the first step is to prep the to-be-inked area by shaving it clean of hair. Then, apply a thick layer of toothpaste to the skin and rub it in. This minty step is said to remove excess oil from the skin and reportedly helps the longevity of your temporary ink. The video recommends Colgate toothpaste, though its unclear if the particular brand has any effect on the final product.

After wiping the excess toothpaste off, grab a marker-like pen and get to sketching your ink. Once you are happy with the design, dust it with face powder or baby powder. This particular tutorial then goes over the design again in waterproof eyeliner for extra staying power, dusting it once more for good measure.

To lock the resulting ink in even further, apply one super thin layer of Vaseline, which is known for repelling water. After drying for 30 minutes, your tattoo is ready to be put through the wringer. That includes pools, showers, gym sessions, and whatever other trouble you could get into.

Think temporary tattoos are only for little kids and Coachella baddies? Think again.

Richmond Then and Now: 114 E. Broad Street – rvahub.com07.09.20

The City of Richmond has remained an apex of the evolving Black Lives Matter movement. The city is known for its statues and monuments honoring leaders from the Civil War era, but also its prolific and progressive artist community who have come together to deploy a series of creative and uplifting responses during the past month. This includes the owner of Loose Screw Tattoo, Jesse Smith.

When the rest of his Carytown business neighbors boarded up their storefronts in anticipation of predicted riots and looting, Smith followed recommendations and added plywood to the front of his tattoo shop.

I didnt really want to board up my business, but it was recommended so we decided to follow suit, he says. After we put it up, I thought, theres a surface that needs to be decorated. I didnt want to just write Black Lives Matter all over everything. I wanted to create something that was more impactful.

Smith snagged up a couple of cans of spray paint he had laying around in his garage and headed over to his shop. The mural took four hours in total to complete. His George Floyd portrait is one of many new murals related to the Black Lives Matter movement in Richmond. Other mural artists who have added color to the city include Hamilton Glass, Nico Cathcart, Nils Westergard, Emily Herr, and many other artists who have come together to be a part of the Mending Walls Project. Artists around the country have also marked buildings and landmarks with designs, words, and other calls to action.

Smiths mural will be up for auction to benefit Mutual Aid Disaster Relief Richmond (MAD RVA) starting July 7. The network launched in 2018 in response to needs associated with public housing.

We operate collectively and are primarily functioning as a supply delivery for folks who cannot access medicine, food, cleaning supplies, and other life necessities, says member Tamanna Sohal.

MAD RVA also has a mini-grants program that provides communty members with direct financial aid of up to $125, prioritizing Richmonders who are Black, brown, queer, trans, immuno-compromised, elderly, pregnant, and/or have several people in their household. All funds raised are redistributed through items for their supply drive and mini-grants.

The auction is presented by the Giving Arts Foundation (GAF), founded by Smith. The mission of GAF is to unite the arts community to support urgent and meaningful causes locally and internationally.

Tattoo model who spent 68k on body modifications shows what’s beneath the ink – Daily Star07.09.20

A tattoo model broke down in tears after seeing what she looks like without ink.

Amber Luke, who has around 600 designs that sprawl her entire body, covered her face with foundation to create fresh-looking skin.

She wanted to surprise her boyfriend Sam, but the experience brought back difficult memories for her.

The 25-year-old, from Brisbane, Australia, started getting inked after she was diagnosed with depression as a teenager.

On an episode of Hooked On The Look, she said: My journey started when I was 16-years-old and was diagnosed with severe depression.

A lot of my tattoos have been like a kind of therapy.

After sitting in the tattooists chair for the first time, Ambers love for inkings grew.

She has returned hundreds of times and even braved plastic surgery and body modifications too.

In a bid to feel more comfortable in her skin, the model has had her eyeballs inked and tongue split into a fork.

Shes also had a boob job, dermal piercings and a Brazilian butt lift.

Amber revealed: How much have I spent on tattoos? My mum likes to cry when I say this number about $50,000 AUD (around 28,000).

But thats just on tattoos, so with my procedures like my breast augmentations, my eyeball tattoos, my tongue splitting and my BBL (Brazilian butt lift) thats happening its about $70,000 AUD (around 40,000).

While some may judge Amber because of how much money shes spent on her appearance, she explained that shes not materialistic.

The model believes the money has been worth it because shes able to look in the mirror and accept herself nowadays.

She added: I know it sounds very materialistic that I want to change myself so much.

But imagine hating yourself so much that you couldnt even look in a mirror or think about going outside the house.

It was horrific to live through.

Even though some critics question Ambers life choices, she refuses to let them hold her back.

She added: I dont plan on stopping any time soon

These days, Im just a different person to what I used to be.

Life happens and you get judged.

At the end of the day Im a strong person and I can take it.

Fans praised Amber for speaking so candidly about her tattoo journey and many assured her that she looked amazing before and after getting inked.

One commenter remarked: Hearing her say before all the tattoos, she couldnt look in the mirror and hated herself, breaks my heart.

She was beautiful before all the modification.

Another said: She is happy and thats all that matters.

I love tattoos, always express yourself however you want, it's your life, your happiness, your body.

And a third added: You can totally tell she has a wonderful heart and is a very kind person. And if that is how she loves herself then that is amazing!!!

Tattoos NI: Here’s some of the first tattoos inked in Belfast as lockdown rules relaxed – Belfast Live07.09.20

Floral designs and characters were among the first tattoos inked in Belfast following the latest relaxation of lockdown rules.

Donal Kelly of Belfast City Skinworks Tattoo and Piercing Studio said they were also preparing artwork for those who want to mark the experience of the Coronavirus pandemic.

The studio reopened at 11am on Monday with four clients booked in.

Maria Speers from Belfast was among the first through the doors for a spaceman skeleton tattoo on her lower arm.

"It's something I had wanted for ages," she told the PA news agency, while tattoo artist Catherine Amos described being excited to be back at work.

Chloe McEnhill from Omagh, Co Tyrone, was starting the process of getting a floral design on her arm.

"Every day of lockdown, I was counting down the days to getting this done," she said.

Mr Kelly said getting to reopen had felt fantastic.

"We have put a lot of work into making the place as safe as possible, obviously we always try to run a very clean and hygienic studio but now we have added personal protective equipment, markings on the floor to help people keep their social distance as an extra layer of protection for both the artist and the client," he told the PA news agency.

"The clients that had been booked in from March have been fantastic, we pretty much pressed the pause button on our booking system at that stage and now we're trying to rebook all of those clients while allowing space for new clients who have been waiting and contacting us throughout lockdown."

Mr Kelly said with some staff still on furlough and the demands of PPE as well as shorter sessions they are operating at around 60%.

He said they are taking small steps to reopening.

"At any stage we could have up to 12 customers in here but at the moment we are operating at four. That will continue until we are sure our safety measures are working in the way we want them to," he added.

While the studio continues to work through a backlog of appointments, Mr Kelly said some of the artists have prepared artwork for those who want to mark the pandemic with a tattoo.

"Some of the artists are drawing up Covid related images but because we are dealing with clients who had been booked in back in March before the pandemic we haven't got to that yet," he said.

How Artist Peter Forsythe Landed His Dream Job With the Grateful Dead – Teton Gravity Research07.09.20

Designer and artist Peter Forsythe carved out a unique niche in the rock and roll industry, designing t-shirts for some of the most prolific bands. Peter Forsythe photo.

Weve all been asked this same question: What do you want to be when you grow up? For Peter Forsythe, the answer came to him at his first Grateful Dead show in 1981. The music, the culture, and community fascinated him, and more importantly, as a fledgling artist, he saw other artists making a living by selling their artwork on t-shirts at the shows. It planted the seed in his brain that he could make his own. With no formal training in silk screening or graphic design, Forsythe started cranking out t-shirts in his basement and sold them to high school classmates. By the time he was in college studying printmaking at SUNY New Paltz, his printing process was dialed and he was churning out all kinds of custom Grateful Dead apparel.

One of those t-shirts was Forsythes big break. He was wearing it while walking down the main street of New Paltz, New York, and out of nowhere, a voice called to him. It was the owner of a local Grateful Dead clothing shop, and he really liked Forsythes design. As luck would have it that shop owner also happened to be the main producer of Grateful Dead shirts for their tours. When he learned that Forsythe was the designer, he offered Forsythe a job on the spot. The rest is history. For the next decade, Forsythe made artwork for the Dead nonstop up until 1995, the year Jerry died. Following Jerrys death, Forsythe launched his own business and successfully carved out a unique niche in the rock & roll space by working with not just the Dead, but a few other bands youre probably familiar with: ACDC, Pink Floyd, Bob Dylan, and many, many more.

With over 30 years of design experience with the Grateful Dead, it only felt appropriate for TGR to work with such a legendary artist in the music industry for our next round of t-shirts. In his latest apparel collaboration with TGR, Forsythe combined his iconic intricate hand-drawn style with the mountain culture of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and youre going to love what he came up with.

Buythe Grateful Dead x TGR "UncleSam" collaboration by Peter Forsythe

We sat down with Forsythe to learn more about his career and the inspiration behind the TGR collaboration.

Where did this love of music stem from?

PF: When I was a kid, I always just wanted to be a Grateful Dead artist. I think I started drawing in the late seventies. I had no idea how to silkscreen, so I just created my own system of doing things in my basement. I was a kid and just figured it out. In high school, I was already selling t-shirts, and my parents thought I was crazy. I would always tell my parents, someday, I'm going to be a Grateful Dead Artist and theyd just laugh and say sure, sure. But here I am now.

I mean, looking back, does it feel surreal to have achieved that goal?

PF: It worked out. It hasn't always been great, because the life of an artist is constantly up and down. It's not a get rich quick thing for sure, but its pretty satisfying. I've seen a lot of things. I've met a lot of rock stars. I've hung out at some pretty cool shows. It's been a pretty interesting life.

Bill Walton even has a few of Forsythe's designs from over the years.

It sounds like your passion really opened some doors for you. What other bands have you designed for over the years?

PF: Ive made designs for a variety of other bands: The Allman Brothers, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, ACDC, The Black Crows,Levon Helm and The Band,Blues Traveler, and Pink Floyd. I've also done a few cool projects like a t-shirt design for theLithuania Olympic Basketball Team.

What about the Grateful Dead resonates with you so much?

PF: These shows felt like a giant family reunion. When I was a kid, I was fascinated. For most concerts, you go there, and you gotta find parking. You pay 30 bucks to the parking attendant and go to the show. After the show, you go home. At a Grateful Dead show, you get there in the morning, find the best spot in the parking lot, set up your booth. Everybody else is doing it. All of a sudden, it's like, it's an all-day kind of flea market where everybody's selling things they made. I was like, wow, this is a real event. This isn't just like a concert that you just go and try to avoid everybody and you don't really talk to too many people. It's not just a nighttime event. It's like an entire day, and that day turned into weeks and months and years.

It eventually turned into: this is just how I want my life to be. I make my art. I see my friends. I travel around. These shows werent really a concert for me at that point. It was just life.

One iconic part about Forsythe's work is the incredible level of detail he brings to his designs. Peter Forsythe design.

When it comes to your work theres an incredible level of detail to it. What inspires this intricate style of artwork?

PF: Im just a really detailed person. I'm not like a loose kind of artist, you know? I mean, originally I wanted to be edgy and rough, but I couldnt help but be detailed, which turned out to be a style. For most of my pieces, I start by working with a couple of shapes and then build from there. Ive found if I start with no idea, I tend to work faster than if I came into a project with an idea.

When did you start incorporating tie-dye into your work?

PF: The tie-dye really helps the overall design in most cases. For me, the artwork is only a part of the t-shirt, and the tie-dye helps kind of create a scene. It kind of gives the artwork a place to live, rather than just floating on a shirt., It makes the whole thing more interesting. I usually layout like a pattern of what my borders will be. A lot of shirts I design are the African pattern, which is that V pattern. So Ill often design things that work with the tie-dye pattern, so they look cohesive.

The creative process behind Forsythe's collab with TGR. Peter Forsythe photo.

How did you end up connecting with TGR to work on this awesome collaboration?

PF: Probably a year or so ago, I got a Facebook message from a picture of one of the first dead shirts I ever did. It was the yellow bear snowboarding. It's a real simplistic design that I think I made in 1989. I was just getting out of college and I didn't even have an art studio yet. I basically drew it at my kitchen table with like a Sharpie.

Anyways, Brian Francis, who handles all of TGRs apparel reached out and asked Hey, did you do this design? And I was like, Yeah, why do you need one. He explained that he was looking for an old school, Dead designer, and weve been collaborating since.

I'm really having fun. Working with TGR is like the fast-paced days back when Jerry was alive, it was like draw t-shirt designs until you pass out. And now I feel like I'm sort of back cause Brian's brain's going 90 miles an hour. Hes always thinking about some new ideas.

Spotting fans in his t-shirts is one of his favorite perks about his job. Peter Forsythe design/photo.

Whats it like seeing your ideas out in the wild?

PF: Its still wild to think about all the different people all over the world wearing these shirts. Friends will send me pictures when they spot my work. Im always fascinated by the people who tattoo shirt designs on their bodies.

When my family goes on a vacation, we find shirts everywhere. Its cool, and the kids have gotten good at spotting my work or their moms artwork. So between the two of us, we're always seeing stuff everywhere. That's always a cool feeling.

I love post malone but this new face tattoo aint it, said one of his followers. My mom was thinking of going to a Post Malone concert, but is too perturbed by his latest face tattoo, said a second.

Others were simply jealous of Malones ability to pull of the bold designs. A fan Tweeted, I wish I could pull off a face tattoo like#PostMalone does. He got a new one on NYE but just like short hair, I know it would never look good on me.

Malone got his first design while working alongside tattoo-obsessed Justin Bieber. He opted for Playboy bunny on his left forearm and later got a miniature version of the logo tattooed on his face, as well.

The hitmaker opened up about that first experience on an episode of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon in 2018. He said, We were working on Stoney and then we had a tattoo artist come through, and I was like, You know what? Justin Biebers got some tats, and I love you, but I know Im way tougher than you.

Now, the stars covered in over 50 tattoos and fans are under the impression that hes not slowing down anytime soon.
