Local tattoo artist works to heal the scars of cancer – MyFoxZone.com KIDY10.08.21

Garrett Potts of Old Town Tattoo is hoping to provide a restored self-confidence to breast cancer survivors.

SAN ANGELO, Texas Garrett Potts is working to leave a mark on West Texas. About four years ago, the tattoo artist, San Angelo native and owner of Old Town Tattoo discovered areola restorative tattooing, a procedure designed to give women who have had mastectomies natural-looking breasts again.

Id been tattooing for about 10 years at the time, Potts said. Breezing through the internet, one day I stumbled across a guy that was doing reconstruction tattoos and it was the first time Id ever seen anything like that. So I got really excited about it, and its something thats always kind of sat on the backburner of my mind.

Unfortunately at the time, Potts didnt have a suitable location to perform the procedure without the usual stigma that comes along with tattoo shops.

Its a super-emotional experience for these women. They didnt need to be sitting on the couch with a bunch of ratty guys who want to get the year they graduated tattooed on their butts.

Then, last year when the COVID pandemic had just about everyone unsure of what the future might hold, Potts was able to secure a quaint little two-story house on Orient Street, one in which he could both work and raise his four-year-old son, Max, along with their shelter Corgi, Rex.

The opportunity came up to get this really cool place where I could separate my clientele from the people who want to get the traditional tattoos and the women that need the restorative tattoos.

The house looks more like an "Ozzie and Harriet" starter-home than a traditional anchors-and-dragons-type tattoo parlor.

This house is very inviting, you know? Theres nothing intimidating about it. Youre not gonna walk in here and get kicked in the face with heavy metal music. I try to keep it calm and relaxed. Ive got a back entrance for the survivors to come in. I try to create a private experience here.

Now that Potts has his shop/house up set up, hes eager to get the word out about what can be a life-changing procedure for breast cancer survivors, especially those who might not have ever considered walking into a tattoo shop.

One of those survivors, Janie Castanuelas, said Potts work has changed her whole self-image.

When we were texting I was like, I dont know. Im not sure about this, because I was still very hesitant to let anybody see me like that, Castanuelas said. Thats the biggest thing when youre like that, because youre not whole. When I came in, I was very self-conscious. But he just made me feel so comfortable and took care of me. He changed my life for the better. I feel whole now. Before, it was very hard to look at myself. After he was done he said, Look at yourself in the mirror, and I just broke down.

Potts said the self-improvement aspect is a two-way street.

These last couple years, everybody is going through something. If I tattoo two or three clients a week that are going through this, and hear their story, and see the change that Ive done for them, it really kind of doesnt leave a whole lot of room for depression and sadness inside of myself. So its life-changing for me, too. Ive never had anybody break down and cry over a skull tattoo I gave them. So this is cool, you know?

For the rest of October, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Potts is offering free restorative work to four cancer survivors.

Were going to have the house lit up pink to show support, and anyone who gets ahold of me, for four women this month, Im going to provide pro bono services.

Outside of October, Potts said hes willing to negotiate with installments.

Ill work with everybody. I dont want to turn anybody away from this. Unlike traditional tattoos, which are a luxury for all of us and not a necessity, I feel like this is the complete opposite of that. I feel like this is a necessity, Potts said. "Although doing cobras and daggers and things like that are super-fun to do, this was a whole other avenue that I didnt even know tattooing could take me down. Tattooing can change peoples lives. And this is one way it can do it.

Police investigation launched after vehicle reverses into Durham tattoo shop and house in ‘targeted attacks’ – ChronicleLive09.04.21

Officers have launched an investigation after a vehicle reversed into a tattoo shop and house in "targeted attacks" in County Durham.

Durham Constabulary officers were called at around 10.15pm after a dark coloured 4x4 reversed into the front of Eddies Tattoo Studio on Third Street, Horden, before driving off.

Just minutes later, a second call was made to police after a vehicle reversed into a property on Fifth Street and officers were then informed that several windows were also smashed on a property in Blackthorne Avenue.

Memory making with London’s most stylish creative couple – harpersbazaar.com09.04.21

Memories come in many different formats: a cinema ticket stub from a first date; the smell of a particular coffee roast you tried on holiday; a piece of jewellery, signifying a momentous date, that never leaves your finger (or keepsake box because youre petrified of losing it).

On face value, most memories sound familiar, but however pedestrian an object, scent or story may seem, each is intrinsically unique to an exclusive number of people. An intimate moment in time thats captured forever.

Poetic sentimentality aside, establishing memories is also scientifically beneficial to our wellbeing. Certain studies have revealed that changes in brain neurons are linked to the formation of memories, suggesting that the creation of them is associated with the strengthening of existing neurons or even the growth of new connections. Its also suggested that improved memory is associated with better jobs and better relationships. So in summary, memory wont just get you off the hook for forgetting your mothers birthday (again) itll actually improve quality of life.

One couple who demonstrate this theory is renowned photographer/designer Ronan Mckenzie and tattoo artist Diogo Rodrigues. They have perfected the art of creating memories in their relationship and through their creative projects. In partnership with Gucci to celebrate their newest jewellery collection inspired by love, Link To Love, we caught up with the duo to discuss how objects can be so much more than mementos, giving fashion and photography deeper meaning, and inking memories onto their skin

SKIN DEEP

Diogo and Ronan met while they worked in an American Apparel on Londons Carnaby Street seven years ago, where they bonded over their love of art galleries, photography and Japanese-inspired tattoos. These shared interests grew into something much bigger, which saw Ronan exit the world of retail to pursue photography professionally. She received commissions from the likes of Glossier and size-inclusive brand Universal Standard (to name but a few), while Diogo became an established tattoo artist in East London.

CHRISTINA EBENEZER

But it all started with an extinct reptile...

I wanted to get a dinosaur on my finger, Ronan says stroking a small black and white T-rex tattoo, reminiscing about the early days. I went to a parlour and they were like, No, its too small Im not going to do it. It was at the very beginning of our relationship; I came into work and we were chatting. Diogo said hed do it for me and wrote down his Tumblr on a scrap of paper. I still have that paper in my old purse. Thats the earliest keepsake I have. Then he actually did the dinosaur tattoo on my finger. I was supposed to just get that one, but then I got carried away and had all four fingers done!

Ronans sentimentality expands beyond expired social media accounts and into other elements of her body art. I have these two on my hands that are my mums hands from a picture that I took of her holding coconuts in Barbados, which is where shes from. Diogo tattooed it for me so it has double meaning.

CHRISTINA EBENEZER

I was supposed to just get that one, but then I got carried away

A lot of people come to you with very sweet stuff, she says, looking at Diogo. They want a picture of their dog, parents or boyfriend.

But not every piece has to have a deep, literal meaning. A tattoo marks a moment of time in your life, Diogo philosophises. When I look at mine, its not a direct reference to something. It just allows me to remember a specific period of my life.

People used to say, What if you break up? because I have so many tattoos by him, Ronan says. But whatever happens, its still a moment thats been captured.

PHOTOS SAY A THOUSAND WORDS

I think thats the special thing about photography: its something thats never going to happen again, Ronan says, as she explains why photos are the ideal keepsake. Actually, I got into photography because of Diogo, in a way. I was starting to get interested and he had a camera that his dad gave him.

Yeah, on one of those gallery trips to the Saatchi in the early days, I showed you how to use an analogue camera for the first time, he reminisces.

CHRISTINA EBENEZER

I wasnt listening because you smelt really good, she recalls. I wasnt listening to any of this aperture talk! But then I began to use one of Diogos cameras to shoot and that was why I started on film and not on digital, because that was what I had access to thats how I found my signature style.

Although shes shot for prestigious make-up brands and glossy magazines, theres a more intimate subject closer to Ronans heart. The work thats most special to me is about relationships, she says. Im really interested in connectivity and how people interact with each other, celebrating those quiet moments when nothings really happening. It's clear that Ronan and Diogo's latest jewellery collection, Link To Love, is inspired by love in these quiet moments.

MORE THAN A MEMENTO

Ronan receives jewellery every year from her mother, which she keeps in a jewellery box. Jewellery is so special, but I only wear the stuff that I bought for myself. I want to keep it safe because if I lose it, then Ive lost that special piece of my mum, she says. Even if my mum writes me a note or birthday card, I'll keep the envelope where shes written my name on it. My dad calls me every day and if I don't pick up he leaves a voicemail, and I keep all the voicemails even though he says the same thing.

CHRISTINA EBENEZER

That's the special thing about photography: it's something thats never going to happen again

Gucci Link To Love 18ct Gold Mirrored Ring

Gucci Link To Love 18ct Gold Bar Necklace

Gucci Link To Love 18ct Gold Chain Drop Earrings

Gucci Link To Love 18ct White Gold Diamond Ring

Gucci Link To Love 18ct Gold Studded Ring

Gucci Link To Love 18ct White Gold Diamond Bar Bracelet

You used to wear a seahorse necklace that your mum gave you for years and years until it broke, Diogo remembers. Now you carry it in your purse.

And you wear the ring that I got you, she says. But youre not as attached. If you lost one, would you be upset?

Yeah I would, but I don't tend to lose things

Youre looking at me like thats a me thing.

CHRISTINA EBENEZER

Although Ronan and Diogo haven't collaborated on work together, they are both cemented in each others projects from a foundation perspective thats invisible to those not in the know. From acting as each others canvases for tattoos to Diogo looking after their sick dog while Ronan set up her gallery, they have both been there and acted as inspiration for each other through major career milestones, combining love and work to create something truly authentic.

You cant fake it, because theres something so special when you really know someone and they really know you, Ronan states when explaining her photography ethos. There are really tender moments that happen between people, whether thats a love relationship, friendship or family. You can see it if its not real. The special thing about it is you get to tap into someone's life for a minute.

US-Mexico border closure turned busy streets into ghost town – Business Insider09.04.21

The only sounds in the tattoo studio are rock music and the buzzing of two tattoo machines. In the 71-year-old pawn shop across the street, it's silent except for the humming air conditioner and a telenovela playing in the background.

For the most part, an empty quiet fills El Paso's downtown and keeps local businesses in a stranglehold. As a ban on non-essential travel from Mexico drags on into its 16th month, businesses in the border city have seen cash flows shrivel and have struggled to stay alive after up to half their customers vanished.

The US government first banned non-essential travel from Mexico to curb the spread of COVID-19 in April 2020, and has extended the restrictions every month since then.

"What was once a thriving street is now a ghost town," Jon Barela, CEO of the economic development organization Borderplex Alliance, told Insider. He noted that up to 30% of retail sales in this area were made to Mexicans before the border closure. "It's had a devastating impact on many of those small businesses in our region."

In Dave's Loan Co, a cramped pawn shop in one of the oldest buildings in town, the owner has met disintegrating foot traffic and a dwindling loan balance with somber resignation. His parents owned the shop before him, and his grandparents bought the building when he was seven years old.

"We've been here 71 years. What else can I say? It's very hard to see it like this," Baron said. "We've spent our whole lives here."

Though he loves the carousel of eccentric people and items that cycle through the doors, he lives off social security benefits since he can't afford to pay himself a salary anymore.

His tiny shop is crammed floor-to-ceiling with pawned off oddities, ranging from the typical to the unsettling. What Baron says is a real mummy brought in years ago by a mysterious customer faces the cashier counter (sticker price of $15,000), and a blackened, wizened finger purported to be Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa's trigger finger is displayed in a shadow box in the shop window.

Built in the 1870s as a horse stable, the building was allegedly frequented by Billy the Kid, Wyatt Erp, as well as the other desperados, gunslingers, and outlaws during its wild west days, Baron said. But now, the store is hemorrhaging cash, neighboring businesses are shuttering, and the downtown is filling with "for rent" signs.

"What can you do?" Baron said.

Located in a bend in the Rio Grande, El Paso's downtown juts up against a port of entry where a trickle of cars and pedestrians pass back and forth from Ciudad Jurez, El Paso's twin city on the other side of the border fence. The two cities' histories and communities have been knitted together for generations families and friends live on either side of the border; people cross to work, shop, and socialize; and roughly $72 billion worth of international trade crosses into El Paso from Juarez every year.

The closure has made in-person gatherings in the US practically impossible and cut off a crucial source of revenue for many El Paso businesses. It's unclear when the travel restrictions will lift or even what requirements would have to be met before that happens.

Tom Fullerton, an economist at the University of Texas at El Paso, estimates that local businesses lost $200 million in retail sales in 2020 due to the border restrictions.

"If the border ever re-opens, that is a lot of pent-up demand," Fullerton said.

In August, the Department of Homeland Security extended the restrictions until September. In the meantime, other businesses have found new ways to reach Mexican customers who are barred from crossing. At a 39-year-old boutique dress shop, where girls often bought their prom and quinceaera dresses at the same place that their mothers first tried on their wedding gowns, the owner now hand-delivers wedding dresses to her clients in Mexico.

Elodia Perches, the owner of Bridal Novias, said around half her customer base was from Mexico before the pandemic. Last year, her revenue plummeted by around 90%.

"The only reason I'm in business still is because I have a guardian angel," she said. "I feel like, literally, we are blessed."

Fabian Cobos, the owner of Golden Goose Tattoo, said his business was on the brink of shutting down during the pandemic. During the lockdown, he'd often jolt awake from sleep, panicked and his heart racing, wondering when his business and the world would return to normal.

It still hasn't. His store lost around 10% of its customers because of the border closure, but he hopes a lifting of restrictions would revive foot traffic and customers that many borderland businesses rely on.

Despite the economic impact of the border closure, public health experts are divided over how effective travel restrictions are at taming the virus's spread.

"I don't think keeping the border closed necessarily makes any sense since there's already so much COVID in Texas," Andrew Noymer, a public health professor at the University of California Irvine, said. "Travel restrictions in general worldwide is like the saying of 'a horse has bolted from the barn' a long time ago."

Armando Meza, chief of infectious diseases at Texas Tech University, said achieving high immunization rates in the US and Northern Mexican states would reduce the risk of spreading the virus once the borders reopen. El Paso's vaccination rate has hit 71%, while Ciudad Jurez lingers at around 30%, with the US promising to deliver 8.5 million vaccine doses to Mexico in the next month.

El Paso County Judge Ricardo Samaniego said vaccine parity between the two regions should be a priority, noting that opening the border would allow areas like El Paso to set up vaccination hubs for people from Jurez and the surrounding areas, where it's more difficult to access vaccines.

"I don't think we can solve this issue by having the bridges closed," he said. "We solve it by dealing with the reality of this situation."

Logan Real Transforming The Way We View Leather Goods – Ocean Drive Magazine09.04.21

IN THE MIDST OF AN AWE-INSPIRING BRAND EXPANSION, LOGAN REAL TRANSFORMS THE WAY WE VIEW LEATHER GOODS WHILE TAKING HIS BUSINESS TO NEW HEIGHTS.Handmade leather tote bag. PHOTO COURTESY OF LOGAN REAL

Over the past 14 years, Miami-based artist Logan Real (@loganreal) has taken the luxury goods world by storm, showcasing his unique artistry through customizing high-end leather products for celebrity clientele such as Drake and Kendall Jenner. Now, he plans to expand his mastery. From leather goods to home decor, Real is poised to transform the luxury leather industry with unrivaled creativity. We chat with the artist to find out whats next.

What sparked your interest in the customization of leather goods?

In college, I started painting on T-shirts and sneakers to express my thoughts. This was the first time I started customizing goods, and I knew if I focused on the craft, I could become good at it. Over time, I became fascinated with high-quality leather goods and how they were constructed. I studied brands like Herms and Moynat to learn how to develop refined leather goods.

Do you think being a selftaught artist made it harder for you to break into the industry?

Absolutely. I think it was very difficult at the beginning of my career to earn customers loyalty and respect in the industry. My customization business is basically a tattoo shop for luxury leather goods. I must know what Im doing for clients to trust me with their high-priced items. Over time, as I worked with respected influencers and designers, people slowly began to trust my services.

Do you have a favorite piece in your collection?

My favorite piece in my collection is the bespoke dog charm! I really enjoy making this item because Im able to create a one-of-a-kind charm that features my clients dog portrait, which is handpainted, and also includes hot foil embossed with the dogs name. Clients put these on their handbag handles, and it becomes a very special piece for them. I also paint cats and horses.

Whats next for your brand?

My direct intentions are to develop an American luxury housethis is one of the reasons Ive been studying refined French leather craft. My house will include leather goods, home decor and more as the brand progresses. All goods will be made in the USA with the highest level of quality control and purity.

Where You Have Seen The Cast Of Fantasy Island Before – Looper09.04.21

Episode 6 of the new "Fantasy Island," which is titled "The Big Five Oh," follows a single-track storyline, though its plot carries slightly less freight than its guest stars. The premise about three longtime friends who travel to the island to celebrate their 50th birthdays is enlivened by the presence of Josie Bissett, Laura Leighton, and Daphne Zuniga as the trio, which makes the episode as close to a "Melrose Place" reunion as possible.

Josie Bissett, who plays Camille in "The Big Five Oh," was Jane Andrews/Mancini on five and a half seasons of "Melrose Place" before taking off time in the 1996-97 season after a real-life health issue. She returned to the show for its final season in 1998, and later reprised Jane for the CW's revival of "Melrose Place" in 2009.

Between "Melrose" assignments, Bissett has also enjoyed recurring roles on "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" and "When Calls the Heart," as well as guest appearances on "Law & Order: Special Victim Unit," among other series. She's hosted several specials on parenting, and co-edited two books on advice for parents. Bissett is also a longtime advocate for breast cancer awareness.
