Aidan Mann funeral: Brother pays emotional tribute to tattoo artist murdered in Downpatrick – Belfast Telegraph01.12.22

The brother of the tattoo artist Aidan Mann who was murdered in Downpatrick last week has paid an emotional tribute at his funeral.

idan, also known as Zen Black, was stabbed with two knives in Church Street in the town on Monday, January 3, before four men wrestled the attacker to the ground and disarmed him.

Barry Donnelly, who lived on Church Street, appeared in Newtownards Magistrates Court on Wednesday charged with the 28-year-olds murder.

The funeral took place on Monday morning (January 10) at S.Clarke & Sons funeral directors in Bangor.

The service was for immediate family only, but a live stream was available to those coming to pay their respects outside.

The burial took place at Clandeboye Cemetery afterwards, where he was buried with his grandmother.

On a Facebook post by Sailors and Scoundrels Tattoo Parlour in Newtownards on Friday, where Aidan was working at the time of his death, requested that all men attending must wear black ties.

Inside the funeral home, images from Mr Manns childhood were played on a screen as close family members arrived.

The service began with the theme music from the Titanic film being played as the coffin arrived and loved ones comforted each other.

A humanist celebrant led the service, stating that as Aidan had not been religious the family wished the service to be a celebration of his life.

Mourners heard how as a young child he had a love of dressing up in a batman costume and his creativity later saw him become a highly respected tattoo artist.

Several songs from his favourite group, My Chemical Romance, were played during the service which also included a heartfelt tribute from Aidans brother Lewis.

"Theres absolutely no words to describe my brother, he said.

"I have sat with my brother and had time alone with him, and I said to him Im very good at my words, and I cant find the words for Aidan.

"They say people were one in a million, well Aidan was one in a trillion.

"He was my protector, he was my older brother...we done so much together and we had so much planned together.

"I told everybody that I knew that I didnt care if they liked tattooing or not, Aidan was the best tattooist in Northern Ireland and I was so proud, I still am, so proud of him.

He added: He built me up to be the person that I am and Ill continue to try and adapt some of Aidans mannerisms, but nobody could.

He said his brother would have cried if even a wasp was hurt in front of him.

"He was a big gentle soul, me and my brother had a bond and I loved him very much.

"We had so much planned together, but hes getting a beautiful send off with beautiful people and beautiful friends.

"Everything is beautiful, he would be so proud and so happy of everyone.

Addressing the tragic nature of his brothers death, he said: I loved him so much, this didnt need to happen.

"Honestly he was the best person on the face of the earth. You couldnt have got a better person than Aidan.

Last Tuesday a special vigil was held in his memory where around 60 vehicles gathered at the Seacat car meet-up event in Belfasts Corporation Street underpass an event Mr Mann is said to have attended each Tuesday evening.

Those who were present in his memory joined together to pay tribute to someone they described as a very well natured and down to earth person.

An online fundraiser was launched earlier this week to help cover funeral costs with over 7,000 raised in just a matter of days.

Those who set up the fundraising page described Aidan as one of the most interesting, caring and passionate humans about and an accomplished artist in many forms but most notably tattooing adding that the tattoo community of Northern Ireland has lost a legend.

Those who donated to the online fundraising page described him as an amazing person and a beautiful soul.

2021 Best of Erie Winners and Finalists – Erie Reader01.12.22

2021 was the eighth year for the annual Best of Erie Awards, and it was our biggest one yet. More than 650,000 votes were cast in over 120 different categories (657,678 votes in 124 categories to be exact). This bested last year's total by more than 300,000 votes, nearly doubling that record-breaking count. Despite the fact that there were 19 categories either debuting this year or returning many were rendered inapplicable due to restrictions caused by the pandemic.

Erie has spoken, and the Best of Erie Awards have struck an important chord in the community. It's certainly worth paying attention to.

There were a few surprises this year, and a few extremely close races. Some categories have seen virtually the same winners from the beginning, while some manage to switch it up annually.

Every year, nominations are open to the public for an extended period of time. This year, the month of October supplied anyone interested time to provide nominees prior to voting going live. Next year will be no exception, so keep on the lookout for the ninth annual Best of Erie Awards when they open back up in early fall of 2022.

Tattoo shop in Calgary wants to make the industry safer and more inclusive – CBC.ca12.28.21

When Hemlock Tattoo Studio opened its doors in Calgary in September 2020, its artists intended to create a space in contrast to an industry they say is fraught with problems.

The tattoo shop in Victoria Park bills itself as trauma-informed and consent-based.

"As a non-male person who entered the industry, I was immediately faced with sexual harassment, and that is a very common story in this industry," said Janeen Scott, a tattoo artist and co-owner of the studio.

Scottand the other artists at the studiosaymistreatment of all kinds bullying, intimidation and harassment can happen in the tattooing space to both artists and clients.

"You have more power than the person you're tattooing. And because of that, a lot of harm can occur," said Scott.

Katie Beach, a client, took a break from getting tattoos in Calgary after having bad experiences with treatment in other shops.

Beach came across Hemlock on TikTok, and after reading up on their policies, soon became a regular.

"I could really tell it was more of a safer space being able to be welcomed in, rather than being met at the door with a little bit of hostility," they said.

The shophas posted policies of zero tolerance for sexual abuse, harassment, racism and other oppressive behaviours. Thepolicies were adapted from those on the LGBT Foundation website.

"We are really following [our clients'] lead to make them as comfortable as possible throughout the tattoo process," said general manager Marlee Watts.

When clients book, they are offered an intake form that includes a section to disclose pronouns as well as sensitivities they might have, like a need for privacy or accessibility accommodations.

Clients canchoose to have a safe word or hand gesture that they can use to stop the tattooing process for any reason without being embarrassed.

"Every part of our process is designed to best provide comfort to the person getting tattooed whether it's managing pain, managing expectations, helping them make sure that they get the exact product that they're looking for," said Scott.

There are also ways for clients to submit feedback to the shop's manager or a third-party arbitrator if any issues come up.

Part of cultivating an inclusive space at Hemlock means educating staff on best practices for tattooing on all skin tones, says Scott.

"The tattoo industry, as well as being very male dominated, is very white dominated," said Scott. She says this leave gaps in knowledge and can perpetuateharmful stereotypes.

To address this, the studio's artists work to educate themselves.

They've taken several workshops, including one with Ink the Diaspora, an organization that challenges colourism in the industry.

When shop co-owner Geneva Haleyshowcases her tattoo designs online, she displays them on a variety of skin tones.

"The education is just not there in a lot of the industry," she said.

Haley says issues in the industry also stem from there being no certification needed to tattoo within Alberta. There are Alberta Health regulations for shops, but all skills areindependently sought by artists.

Steve Peace is the owner of Immaculate Concept tattoo and piercing studio in Calgary. Hestarted the Calgary Tattoo and Arts Festival in 2004.

"There are no courses you need to take there's no overseeing body for tattoo studios. It's what we call the Wild West, a little bit," said Peace.

Peace believes the onus is on shop owners to set the parameters about what is OK within a studio, and onclients tofind an artist they are comfortable working with.

"I believe there are far more good artists out there than people that will make you feel uncomfortable," he said.

Lexci Krahn owns Red Loon Tattoo and Piercing in Edmonton, a space she says is "safe and welcome" for women and LGBTQ2+ clientele and is accessible for people with disabilities.

Krahn started the Alberta Association of Safe Body Art during the pandemic to act as an intermediary between the provincial government and tattoo shops trying to implement COVID-19 safety measures.

She believes the majority of tattoo studios in the province are places where clients can have positive, safe experiences, and that when there are issues in shops, those places are known about and avoided.

"Tattoo studios in Alberta are safe and inclusive placesto be, and some are safer and some are more inclusive than others," she said.

"Word of mouth means everything in our industry."

For Hemlock artist Scott, she believes policy and practice are tangible ways to address problems that exist in the industry.

"Lots of people have had negative experiences, so it's important to me to be playing a role in and changing that and participating in making that no longer a pattern," she said.

Meet the man trying to keep the art of neon alive and well in Rockford – Rockford Register Star12.28.21

ROCKFORD The art of neon signs might be a thing of the past if not for one of the last local artists still dedicated to the craftsmanship of bending glass.

Jason Gough is a Rockford native who has been mastering the art of making neon signs for over two decades. His work can be seen all over Rockford in the windows of retail businesses,local barsand tattoo shops.

As co-owner of Tawdry Toast Artcade, an art-inspiredretail spaceat 1210 Buchanan St., Gough hopes to eventually hold a class to teach other artists how to incorporate neon lights into their work.

While many people associate neon signs with advertising, Gough's introduction to the craft was strictly through art.

In the '90s, Gough attended the School of Art Institute of Chicago. The school's neon art program was held in the basement of his dorm.

After a few trips on the elevator to the basement, Gough had fallen in love with the art of neon.

"I fell in love with it right away," he said. "As soon as I saw that it was handmade."

Working in neon consistsofa specific and tedious process of heating glassand learning how to bend but not break it. Getting good at it takes years. Traditional neon sign makers learn about it at trade school and work with expertsat sign companies to gain experience.

Unfortunately, Gough said, Rockford's neon sign world was rather tight-lipped and fiercely competitive years ago.

"Nobody would talk to you at all. The old way, people wouldn't even let you into their shops back then," he said."It was all trade secrets. It was like nobody would help you with jobs."

Despite the closed-off and competitivenature of the industry, Gough persevered. He furthered his education with courses in Baltimore and found a localmentor in Gary Gale, a Rockford man and neon expert who took a liking to Gough and helped him perfect his skills.

Gough spent many hours listening to Gale's classical music, watching him chain-smoke cigarettesand learning how to master the art of neon.

Gough started doing his own work in 2000. Since then, he's created over 500 signs and repaired many more throughoutin the city.

And while repairs and crafting "open" signs usually are the money makers, Gough still finds time to create artwith neon such as the Misfit logo, the Darth Vader helmetand a large octopus all of which illuminate the walls of the Tawdry Toast.

"It's satisfying to light up signs people love it," Gough said. "If people have an idea and they're like 'Oh I want this for my pool bar' and then once I get it there and it's lit up and they have their friends over it's awesome. ... There's nothing like neon."

During the height of thepandemic, Gough spent about 11 months creating a custom sign for the 317 Art Collective, a local art gallery located at317 Market St.

"It's beautiful. It's really vibrant, and I feel like it's nice to have a big great sign," said 317 artistNicole Landreth.

Chile’s young, leftist incoming president Gabriel Boric shuns conventions. But will that include showing his large tattoos? – CBS News12.28.21

Santiago, Chile When Gabriel Boric is sworn in as Chile's president, he'll not only be the youngest to lead the South American country but also the first in Latin America to sport several tattoos.

The question is whether he'll openly display them.

One person hoping he does is Yumbel Gngora, the self-proclaimed "tattoo dissident" who inked the three elaborate designs that fill Boric's arms and back with sweeping imagery from his native Patagonia region.

"It's important that a person never forgets their roots. That always keeps you focused on where you are and what's important ... not get lost in the fame," Gongora told The Associated Press while taking a break at her parlor in downtown Santiago, which is decorated with artwork containing feminist slogans.

Boric, 35, scored a historic victory in Sunday's runoff over a one-time admirer of Donald Trump after campaigning on a promise to attack the nagging poverty and inequality that he and leftist supporters argue is the unacceptable underbelly of a free market model imposed decades ago by the dictatorship of General Augusto Pinochet.

Since his days as a student protest leader, Boric has made a career of flouting conventions. He shunned the traditional suit and tie when he was elected to congress in 2014 and instead wore rock band T-shirts, jeans and once even a Mohawk, all the while drawing the ire of traditionalists.

"I couldn't care less," he said at the time, dismissing the conventions as "a tool of the elites to distinguish themselves from the low people."

But he adopted a decidedly more conformist look in the run-up to Sunday's runoff election - still no tie, but a dark sport coat, dress shirts and well-groomed beard - to court more conservative Chileans on edge about voting for an untested millennial who counts among his supporters Chile's Communist Party.

Gngora said she studied old maps of Chile for months in coming up with the first tattoo she designed for Boric nearly a decade ago: a map of the ice-capped islands and labyrinthine fjords near where both grew up in Punta Arenas, at the tip of the South American continent.

Later, she designed two more: a lenga tree twisted into knots by the strong southern winds and an end-of-world lighthouse shining into emptiness that Boric had carved into his left arm during a battle with depression.

"A lonely Magellan lighthouse among the stormy and mysterious seas of southern Patagonia," Boric said in a 2018 social media post showcasing Gngora's body art. "I'm going to live there one day but in the meantime it lives with me."

Gngora, whose dyed green hair, piercings and tattoos are something of a walking advertisement for her university-trained artistry, said Boric always stood out among her urban hipster clientele because of his humility - something she attributes to his upbringing far from the capital.

But she felt betrayed by her fellow activist when in November 2019 he negotiated a deal with allies of President Sebastian Pinera to put an end to nationwide protests in exchange for a commitment to hold a plebiscite on rewriting the Pinochet-era constitution. It was a risky political decision that at the time cost Boric the support of hardliners like Gngora, who identifies as a "anarchist-feminist."

Like huge numbers of often apathetic Chilean youth, she nonetheless voted for Boric in the runoff, fearing a win by his conservative opponent - Jos Antonio Kast - would be a major setback for women, indigenous rights and Chile's LGBTQ community.

In her binder sits the sketch for yet another tattoo for Boric - its design a secret - that the two discussed a while ago. With the demands of his new job and the future of Chile riding on his shoulders, she doesn't know if she'll get to ink it, though.

"I'd hope he doesn't stop being a rocker," Gngora said. "But I don't know if that will fly in politics. Then again, nobody ever expected such a young president."

Girls behind Cork’s salon-style tattoo parlour give back after whirlwind success – Cork Beo12.15.21

The team of twenty-somethings behind Cork city's salon-style tattoo parlour The Ink Collective are celebrating their first Christmas together by donating gift vouchers to women living at Edel house, an emergency residential care centre for women and children who have become homeless.

Ceili O' Riordan and Emma Barber, the 22-year-old women who opened the parlour during lockdown said that they have been flat off their feet since they opened and that they are donating gift vouchers to Edel House because they want to "do something special for women in Cork who deserve to feel good at Christmas time because it is the support of women that has made this place a success."

"As young women who had so much to lose going into this, it is so important to us to give back for the opportunities we've gotten, we are also going to have a clothes drop for Edel House here so we're inviting everyone to drop in with items they don't need anymore," Ceili said.

The Ink Collective isn't your average tattoo parlour, as well as getting inked you can get your nails done, your eyelashes, get dreadlocks from the lovely Siobhan, and now you can even have your makeup done by their newest team member, artist Jake Meehan.

Since CorkBeo first spoke to the women who set up the studio they were apprehensive about opening their first business during a pandemic, six months on they are certain it is the best decision they have ever made.

"It has been a whirlwind, and completely chaotic but in the best way possible, we are booked up into the New Year and we still get a buzz each time a client comes back to us," Emma said.

As young business owners, Emma and Ceili want to encourage other women in Cork to chase their dreams and feel empowered to open a business too.

"There's no reason why women shouldn't be going for it, when you're young is the best time to make your mistakes," Emma said.

Jodi Keohane is a nail artist at the studio and has been with the team since the beginning, now she says she couldn't imagine working anywhere else.

"It's crazy to see us go from having one or two bookings a day to having six clients a day until the end of the year, it is fantastic."

Siobhan Harman also does coloured eyelashes and dreadlocks at The Ink Collective, "I couldn't ask for a better team, it was scary when we started and you do wonder if you are good enough, but we're delighted with how it has worked out," she said.

Makeup artist Jake Meehan has recently joined the team and he says he is excited to be working with such a talented bunch.

"We all feed off each other's creativity and inspire each other to try new things, it is an amazing environment to be working in," he said.

Tattoo artists Ceili and Sophie Lynch have gotten a huge help from Ceili's mum Eve, who is now helping them set up between clients and is giving Emma a hand with the management side of the business.

"We're so grateful to Ceili's mum because as we started to get really busy, she helped us to run this place and at this stage, it wouldn't be running without her," Emma said, speaking of Eve's grounding presence.

You can call into The Ink Collective on Langford Row to donate clothes to Edel House and to meet the team in person yourself and treat yourself over the Holiday season.
