PHOTOS: New Popeye, Hello Kitty, and Betty Boop Face Coverings Available at Universal Orlando Resort – wdwnt.com04.22.21

Just last week we found new face coverings hit the shelves around Universals Islands of Adventure. Weve now discovered even more designs featuring some classic characters.

Popeye the Sailor shows off his 100% American pride on this face covering as he poses in front of an American flag and flexes his American flag tattoo.

As with all of the Universal Orlando Resort face coverings, these are 100% polyester on the outer layer and 100% cotton on the inner layer. And although Popeye is 100% American, the masks were made in Guatemala.

Now you can display the world of Sanrio withHello Kitty, My Melody, Kuromi, Aggretsuko, Gudetama, and more with character-themed graphic face covering.

The trim and ear loops of this face covering are black.

This Betty Boop face covering has images of the character along with Xs and Os in line with red lipstick prints.

The ear loops and trim of this design are also black.

While we found these face coverings at the CityWalk Hub Store, weve been seeing them in different retail locations around Universal Orlando Resort.

Check out some other face covering designs weve recently spotted around the resort:

Tattoo artists share the common request many of them will refuse to do – Mirror Online02.15.21

Getting a tattoo is a huge commitment and it can take some people a long time to finalise the design they want inked onto their skin forever.

However, once you've picked it out there's no guarantee every tattoo artist will be happy to do it for you - it may be your body, but some artists may not want their business to be linked to the work.

In a thread on Reddit asking: 'Tattoo artists: What tattoos have you ever refused to do for a client?', those working in the industry flooded the replies with more than 6,000 comments.

Many said they have refused crude or "stupid" designs in the past, with one explaining: "I really don't need that dude telling people that that's my work" - but plenty of others revealed they will turn down a very common request.

Getting your significant other's name tattooed might be your idea of romance, but some artists said they wouldn't be the ones to do it.

One wrote: "Girlfriend's and boyfriend's names. Even husband's and wive's names are kind of a bad idea as it's not unusual for the relationship to go south after getting the tattoo."

A second said: "Currently with a tattoo artist, and yes, couple's names are on the never, not doing it list."

A receptionist at a tattoo shop said that although artists might not always have the heart to say no, they'll find another way of not putting their name to your idea.

They said: "My guys don't flat out tell people 'no' they usually give a crazy outlandish price and that turns people off.

"And when a friend of ours wanted a girl's name on him and wouldn't take no for an answer, we did the name in red and orange so it was more likely to fade, and easier to cover."

And another artist said the policy of not doing names can cause a few arguments, adding: "Some will get offended and assume I owe them a service, and tell me I'm just a s*** tattoo artist, but most the time they understand the reasonings and end up getting something else that day thankfully."

A customer wrote on the thread: "I asked this question to the artist who did my tattoo. He said they refused to do stars in his shop. Apparently stars are for people who want a tattoo but don't know what they want."

But even if you're turned down in one studio, it seems you'll always be able to find someone willing to do it, as one person said: "As a professional tattoo artist of 12 years I have yet to refuse a tattoo."

HAMMONTONKeith Titus, owner of Exotic Body Works, a downtown tattoo shop, will be celebrating his businesss 25th anniversary on March 4. Last year the shop was closed for three months due to the pandemic.

On March 19, 2020, Governor Phil Murphy ordered the closure of all personal care businesses, which included tattoo parlors. It wasnt until three months later that Murphy would sign an executive order allowing tattoo parlors to reopen on June 22.

It was insane for three months last year. Eventually I would literally come to my store and sit in here and clean or just come here and meditate because I needed to get away from my house, Titus said.

Since reopening, the shop has taken extra safety precautions including placing signage about wearing masks and social distancing, taking peoples temperatures and having an occupancy limit. With the occupancy limit, the shop isnt allowed to have more than the person getting tattooed in the chair unless they are a minorwho is allowed one parent or guardian.

The stations were already spaced out pre-pandemic, which allowed social distancing, and the artists were already familiar with sanitation practices.

We were already doing sanitation practices based on blood-borne pathogens. Now basically, we had to take it up a notch, Titus said. Cleaning now includes pens, doorknobs, handles, etc. which are all wiped down.

Currently, there are no walk-ins. Appointments are scheduled over the phone or online.

Once it was in the news online and the news broadcasted tattoo shops reopened we couldnt keep up with the phone calls, the emails, the everything. It was insane, Titus said.

To help with scheduling, Titus hired an assistant over the summer because it was hard to keep up with the large amount of people who wanted an appointment.

Overall, its been positive. I didnt expect the outcomewhen we reopened I honestly thought people would be scared to come out still, Titus said.

March 4, 2021 will mark Exotic Body Works 25th anniversary and Titus 46th birthday. He opened the shop in 1996 when he turned 21.

When I first opened, it was still very taboo. Initially I had trouble finding a place to rent in town. Everybody I called, once I said its for tattoos, didnt want to talk to me or refused to talk to me, Titus said.

The landlord eventually gave him a chance, but even the landlord was apprehensive because he thought it would attract motorcycles in town, but Titus wasnt a biker.

Titus said that, in the 1990s, there were three tattoo shops in Atlantic County; now there are about 30.

Tattooing, style-wise has changed a lot, like a whole lot. Theres a lot of new equipment, machinery; the machines are totally different now Theres a lot of high-tech stuff now. Theres wireless machines. Theres definitely innovations now that are making tattooing way different. The skys the limit on designs now, especially with the internet, Titus said.

Titus and Brian Bocker still draw their designs by hand, even with new technology available.

Titus has tattooed people from all aspects of life.

Now theres people that weve never done tattoo, that are getting tattooed because theyre comfortable, he said.

Some of his clients are from Hammonton, but the shop attracts people from all over the tristate area, from teenagers to grandparents.

When asked about the most rewarding part of tattooing, Titus said, The fact that youre able to put something on somebody for the rest of their life and they trust you. It feels nice to put something on people that sometimes changes their life. People have that reminder every day to them. Some people get memorials, inspirational pieces, that are on them forever. A lot of people they just want to walk around with your artwork, your creation on them. Its an honor. It really is an honor, Titus said.

Exotic Body Works has been in the same building on Central Avenue since 1996.

Ive been in this location so long, its hard for me to separate from it if that makes sense. People know were here. I literally had to move two doors away back in 2007 and 08 for structural issues in the building and people had no idea where I was, Titus said.

Titus has been tattooing since he was 15. Even before that, he was offered an apprenticeship by a family friend.

Ive been around this since I was 7 or 8 years old. My father and my mother had friends and family that were tattoo artists in Philadelphia. I was offered my first apprenticeship when I was 10, but my mom was like, No way! Youre 10 years old! he said.

Before he decided to be a tattoo artist, Titus had plans on being a plumber. He went through four years of vocational school for plumbing and he did well with it, but tattooing took over his life.

When hes not tattooing, hes at home with his daughter Zayla and helping her with virtual learning. Photos of his daughter and his artwork cover the orange walls around his station.

Im a single parent too, so thats really hard too because Im at my business half the day. Luckily my mother helps me with her. But I wouldnt have it any other way. My daughters awesome. Shes great, and she loves the fact that Im a tattoo artist. I dont think she realizes the coolness of it yet because shes only 7, but I know one day shes going to realize that her dads job is really, really cool, Titus said.

Courtney Errera is a longtime client of Titus whos known him since he opened almost 25 years ago. Shes currently adding Disney themed tattoos on her leg, so far she has Cinderellas castle, Dumbo, Mickey Mouse, Winnie the Pooh and recently Nemo.

We were laughing the other night. I was like, you were around my kids when they were in diapers and newborns and now youre tattooing them, Errera said.

On January 7, 2021, Titus tattooed bats on Erreras son, Nathan Rodriguez, which is his fourth tattoo. He said hes going to add doves to his sleeve in the future. One of Rodriguezs previous tattoos included a memorial for his father, who died in 2019. Errera said her family only goes to Titus.

Whatever you want. He will literally make it come to life. Like we couldnt find any Dumbos that look realistic. He drew that to make it look realistic, Errera said.

Bill LaManna, the piercer at Exotic Body Works, has worked with Titus for eight years.

The guys like my best friend. He taught me how to do what I do. He gave me a chance. It worked out I spent every night with the guy for the past eight years. Ive been friends with him for probably over 10. Its kind of like I married him, LaManna said.

During the three months they were closed, LaManna was able to make money from his day job at Ancora Psychiatric Hospital.

I still had my state job. These guys lost all their income. I lost half my income, he said.

When the shop reopened, LaManna was busy piercing. Sometimes he would have 20 people in a night.

Im sick of looking at both of them [Titus and Bocker] honestly. Everyone watches these TV shows and theres like all these half naked girls running around and its a big party and its all fun and games, but no, its just three guys in here working together, staring at each other, LaManna said.

In the past, theres been three tattoo artists and Titus plans hiring another one this year.

Exotic Body Works is located at 4 Central Ave., and Titus is currently booking tattoos for April and Bocker is booking for March. To make an appointment call (609) 704-9266 or email Titus at exoticbodyworks1996@gmail.com or Bocker at bbockertats@ yahoo.com.

Celebrate forever love this V-Day with inked skin – Times of India02.15.21

Gone are the days when just name tattoos were a proclamation of commitment and love. Remember Saif Ali Khans chic Kareena tattoo on his forearm? But that was 13 years ago. Tattoo artistes say that now couple tats are a tad different. People know that tattoos are permanent and it's difficult and painful to get rid of them. So couples now prefer symbolism or something meaningful rather than getting each others names tattooed! says celebrity tattoo artiste Vikas Malani.Couple tattoos are huge and getting a beautiful piece of art tattooed on your body and dedicating it to your partner is all mush and red hot love says award-winning tattoo artiste, Lokesh Verma. Both ink and love requires lifelong commitments as they never fade, regardless of time. So, if you want to show your partner that youre pretty serious about the relationship and it's a 'forever' kind of love, then, matching tattoos are the new way to reveal how much the bond matters to you, he says.

Some designs that are popular among couples include king and queen crowns, connecting puzzle tattoos, partner's name, name initials, zodiac symbols, heart tattoos, lock and key, fingerprints, wedding date and others.

Tattoo professionals say that couples are getting tattoos of their partners' characteristics too or what they like about them. Vikas says, One of our clients got a tattoo of a girl with a whisk in hand which was dedicated to his fiance who is a baker! Another client got a dumbbell/ weight tattooed because her partner is a gym freak.

The pandemic affected relationships, especially long-distance ones. Snigdha and Rajneesh (names changed) who survived a long-distance relationship via phone calls without even getting a chance to meet got a special tattoo recently. Just to honor our love, we got a connecting tattoo where a boy and girl are talking through a string telephone, said Snigdha.

Their tattoo was about how to keep two souls connected no matter how far apart they were because ultimately, they would still be able to find their way back to one another.

Arpan and Jiya Biswas who have been together for over five years now got the date they first met tattooed as a barcode at the nape of their necks. We wanted a small simple one but didnt want a regular date so we used a design that looks like a tiny bar code, said Jiya.

Tattoos that depict one is incomplete without the other, is a popular one during the Valentine month. Lokesh says, Connecting or half-and-half tattoos is complete only when the couple is together. One example is the heartbeat tattoo that runs from one to the other. Couples who are in a long-distance relationship also get connecting tattoos to represent how you and your bae may be miles apart but still connected.

Artist looks to London exhibit – The National02.15.21

Article Views : 0

LIKE millions around the world Oro artist Onesmus Ugiobari is hoping that the pandemic and travel restrictions end soon so he is free to do things he likes doing. This yeart Ugiobari is looking forward to his first oversea trip and an exhibition at an aboriginal and western art gallery in London.Ironically, he is set to visit London, England which has some of the most stringent travel restrictions in light of a new strain of the coronavirus identified there.Ugiobari has been invited to go there to display his tapa art at the Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery. He would have gone last year had it not been for the global travel restrictions owing to the Covid-19 pandemic.He has been producing tapa cloth since he was 20 and over the past few years he sold some of his work to buyers in Australia and to England.He says that his tapa cloth designs are quite distinct from the more popular Tufi variety (common in the coastal Tufi are) and the Orokaiva brand (which is found in the immediate surrounds of Popondetta town and toward Kokoda.Where Ugiabari comes from the mulberry tree bark cloth is produced as an art form as well as for more utilitarian purposes such as carry bags and as special-purpose garments.

Overseas connectionsHe is a member of a cultural group that promotes local products both in the country and to overseas buyers. In recent times greater awarness about their products was made possible by an Australian agent who posted images online. That grabbed the attention of Australian-born, London-based aboriginal art enthusiast Rebecca Hossak.In 2019 Hossack travelled from London to Ugiobaris Savidobehi village in the Afore LLG of Ijivitari where he met the artist and his group.Ugiobari is 47 years old now and has been producing tapa cloth since he was a single young man.At the age of 20, my mother taught me the art of making designs on tapa cloth.My mother was born in 1942 during the war. When she was growing up, at the age of 15 her mother taught her how to beat tapa cloth and make designs. So my mother passed the skill of beating tapa and painting it into quality cloth to me. I grew up with the skills from my grandmother and mother.His mothers art involved the use of traditional plant dyes to produce the primary colours of red, black and yellow found on the tapa cloth.Apart from producing works of art, he also specialises in pieces such as ceremonial apparel for men and mud-dyed black cloth for use by menstruating women. Other types are used as carry bags with straps attached to them.

Promotion in Port MoresbyUgiobari is currently in Port Moresby to display his work at various locations around the city.He has already been to the Laguna Hotel art display and the Moresby Arts Theatre. He will next display his work for sale at the Holiday Inn craft market and the Ela Beach International School.A relative, Nigel Kerua who resides at the ATS Block in National Capital District is taking him around the city to sell and promote his work. He has sold a number of his products in the first such exhibition and looks forward to more sales.This is my first time in the city and for these particular tapa products to be sold here, Ugiobari says.Our people use the bark of the mulberry tree to make these tapa cloth. I learnt from my mother the skills required to make tapa cloth. In turn Im teaching my own children this art form so that it is not lost and forgotten.There is a lot of interest from overseas, from people who know about the Afore tapa cloth art, Ugiobari said.

Various designsHe showed a sample of his mud-dyed tapa cloth and the spider-web designed tapa which can easily fetch up to K1,000 a piece.The spider web design is based on a legend among my people which speaks of a giant spider that killed people long ago. There are other designs such as the parrot beak, body tattoo, lizard jaw and the belly button, he explains.The three colours (red, black and yellow) are made from natural pigments.A couple of years ago I sold my tapa cloth to Australia and England. Now I come to our nations capital to display my amazing tapa cloth.If anyone is interested in my art they can see me at the craft markets in the city.For more information they can call me on 74391255 or email cdiovi@gmail.com.Ugiobari will be accompanied by his manage Chris Diovi on the planned trip to London at the invitation of the Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery.

Tapa in the PacificTapa cloth is known by a number of local names although the term tapa is international and understood throughout the Pacific islands that use the cloth.Wikipedia says the word tapa is from Tahiti and the Cook Islands, where Captain Cook was the first European to collect it and introduce it to the rest of the world. In Tonga, tapa is known as ngatu, and here it is of great social importance to the islanders, often being given as gifts. In Samoa, the same cloth is called siapo, and in Niue it is hiapo. In Hawaii it is known as kapa. In Rotuma, a Polynesian island in the Fiji group, it is called uha and in other Fiji islands it is called masi. In the Pitcairn islands it was called ahu, and in New Zealand as aute. It is also known as tapia.

About Rebecca Hossack Art GalleryOver the course of three decades Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery has built an international reputation forinnovation, individuality, energy and excellence.Hossack has been a great champion of non-western artistic traditions. Hers was the first art gallery in Europe to exhibit Australian aboriginal painting, and it continues to promote such work through its regularSonglinesseasons. She has also curated important exhibitions of work from the Bushmen of the Kalahari, from Papua New Guinea, and from tribal India. Much of this art would simply not have been seen in the UK but for the Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery.The Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery also exhibits across the broad spectrum of western contemporary art, while determinedly moving against some of the dominant currents of the modern art scene.The director of two galleries in central London in Englands and Miami in the United States, Rebecca Hossack was born in Melbourne, Australia in 1955.Following degrees in law and in history of art, Hossack studied at Christies and at The Guggenheim in Venice.From 1993-7, Hossack served as the Australian cultural attach in London, initiating literary links between Australian and British writers and organising a series of exhibitions of Australian art in London.Her unworthy predecessor Sir Les Patterson saluted her as one beaut sheila.Ugiobari is excited that an artist of such international repute has shown an interest in her art.That she had travelled all the way to Afore to meet him and his fellow villagers is special for Ugiobari.It would be a huge break for the Afore tapa cloth man to exhibit his work in the Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery, which he is hoping will be this year or whenever international travel becomes less restricted than it is at the moment.

Mank production designer Donald Graham Burt on recreating the 1930s for David Fincher [EXCLUSIVE VIDEO INTERVIEW] – Gold Derby02.15.21

This was supposed to be the sister movie to Citizen Kane. It wasnt supposed to be something that replicated it in any way, explains Mank production designer Donald Graham Burt in his exclusive interview with Gold Derby (watch the video above). Burt recalls an early conversation that he had with his director David Fincher in which Fincher told him, I want it to be like youre in a film vault and theres Citizen Kane on the shelf and then you look next to it and you go: Oh, theres Mank I dont remember that film. And you pull it out and you watch it and it feels like a film that was made exactly at the same time. Burt continues, It was so important to try to keep it in the 30s with everything and whenever we met challenges or so forth in the art department, I would always take a step back and say, Okay, remember the research. Remember the references. Lets keep it within the time period.

Recreating the 1930s took grand designs, but also menial work when redressing existing spaces. Burt laughs, You go into a room and you start with light switches; you move the doorknob; you go to hinges; you go to security cameras. On the backlot of the studio: For the most part, the studios were intact. They were what they were, but then when you started to really look, you realized there were fire hydrants, there were security cameras, there were punch codes next to doors, there were steel doors instead of wooden doors and then, all of a sudden, you realize you have this three-page list of things that you need to camouflage, which isnt so much a creative exercise, but its one thats respectful of the period.

Burts efforts on Mark have so far resulted in Best Production Design wins from groups like the Los Angeles Film Critics Association and the Online Film Critics Society. He was nominated at the Art Directors Guild Awards for his last four films with Fincher, winning trophies for 2011s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and 2008s The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Burt also won an Oscar for the latter; he now seeks his second nomination.

Merca2.0 is working on its Ranking of Promotion Agencies 2021. If you have a firm or company within this environment and you want to know how it is positioned against other rivals, do not forget to fill in this questionnaire.

There are several ways that people can express their personality visually. The most common items are clothing, hairstyle, and makeup, something that everyone wears regularly. However, it is becoming more and more common for people to make changes to their image that are a little more permanent. The tattoo is perhaps the most popular form of this type of modification. An option that for years has been expanding in several countries.

A tattoo can be as personal or simple as people want. It is not only a way to express personality visually. It also serves, literally, so that people can become true walking works of art. Of course, not just any design convinces everyone. There are people who dig deep into exactly what drawing they want to put on their skin, exploring artists and works of art in their locality and even elsewhere.

For these individuals, the Tattoodo platform is a must-have on their smartphone. The app works much like Pinterest or Instagram, allowing people to see the designs and artwork of people around the world. But it is specifically designed for all lovers of the discipline of tattooing. In other words, it is a world-class catalog with the designs of the most talented artists from practically the entire world.

Its main function is to inspire people on what their next tattoo should look like. Therefore, it has tools that allow you to save publications and create collections of designs. However, it also enables direct dialogue between consumers and local artists or studios. Just by sharing an idea with the app, the algorithm searches its database for tattoo artists with a similar style so that you can establish a conversation.

Not only is it possible for people to discuss with these artists what the final tattoo might look like, the colors, the style, and the position. In addition, the platform allows people to make their appointment and pay directly from the application, which helps businesses in this sector win customers. And for tattoo artists, they can also join to make their work known around the world. In short, one of the best platforms in this environment.

‘Britain’s most tattooed woman’ shows what she looks like with ink covered up – Daily Star02.07.21

Becky Holt is famous for her signature tattoos that cover her from head to toe.

The 33-year-old, from Cheshire, has spent 35,000 covering 95% of her body in jaw-dropping ink.

She has calligraphy on her forehead, geometric designs across her chest and colourful inkings that travel all the way down her legs.

The mum was dubbed Britains most tattooed woman when she appeared on an episode of This Morning a couple of weeks ago.

But what does she look like without her iconic body art?

In an Instagram post shared with her 38,800 followers, Becky covered her tattoos with thick makeup.

She left one half of her torso bare, which was in stark contrast to the ink on the other side.

Becky captioned the image: I look so mad without tattoos! What do you prefer?

The post garnered 2,200 likes and people think the model looks great either way.

One responder swooned: No such thing as too my tattoos in my book beautiful women can only get better with a full body of tattoos.

You are beautiful with or without them.

Another gushed: Both. Youre obviously a natural beauty and the tattoos just enhance that.

A third wrote: With tattoos of course. But youre pretty both ways.

And a fourth added: You look good with either but more quirky with them.

When a commenter asked Becky if shed ever consider getting laser surgery to remove her ink, she said she wouldnt consider it.

Preferring to only temporarily cover her body art with makeup, she replied: No. I really love my tattoos.

While Becky admits people respond to her more positively when she covers up her tattoos.

And on ITVs This Morning, she revealed some assume shes thuggish and are scared when they see her ink.

Despite this, the tattooed influencer has no regrets.

She gushed: I love to stand out, I love the artwork, I love the time and dedication it takes

Im not going to get any more on my face (though), it will spoil the aesthetics.
