TATTOO EXHIBITION Extended & Item of the Week!

Some of you may remember the historic tattoo exhibit at the Chicago Field Museum, where Guy was given the opportunity to showcase a backpiece design, complete with an impressive 3-minute documentary filmed by the Field Museum crew. Due to popular demand, this exhibit has been extended until this fall! If you are in the Chicago area or are planning on traveling there this year, we highly recommend dropping by the museum to check out this unprecedented exhibit showing not only historic objects and images from around the world, but also a comprehensive feature of contemporary artists’ work on skin and canvas. You can check out a gallery of images from the exhibit on our Facebook page.

Speaking of tattoo exhibits, we have a unique book in stock that was printed alongside a tattoo exhibition in London in 2014. It features paintings and works in other media by an international cast of some of the biggest names in the industry, including one of Guy’s most significant paintings for that year. Time: Tattoo Art Today is our featured item this week.

Coverup: A Fresh Look
DVD, 1 hour 45 minutes

As the tattoo art form continues to evolve and grow in popularity, knowing what to do about unwanted tattoos is becoming more and more crucial for tattoo artists. Despite the enormous artistic growth in tattooing over the past two decades, there still seems to be a fundamental gap in understanding what coverup tattooing is all about and how to avoid making dark, dense, obvious coverups. 

Coverup: A Fresh Look was filmed at the 2015 Worldwide Tattoo Conference, and was designed to go over the most crucial theory behind what makes coverups either work or not work, and shows many examples in both photo and video form on several different types of coverup projects from small, single-pass pieces to large, epic transformations, and everything in between. It also goes into detail about the laser, showing several sample projects and discussing in detail the realities of the laser. Video examples are close up and detailed, and the live format also allowed for some insightful audience questions to round out the program. 1 hour and 45 minutes, for professional tattooists only!
