Coming next month on Monday, October 14 we are hosting a special one-day educational intensive. It’s a new format, where several artists which include Stefano Alcantara, Kaija Heitland and Markus Lenhard will be doing tattoos while Guy Aitchison sits with them and picks their brains, aiming to get to the bottom of how they think and work, while also including the best audience questions and showing the tattooing action up close. Between these interviews will be some portfolio critiques of participating audience members, and at the end of the day will be a panel discussion featuring the presenting artists addressing some of the tattoo art form’s biggest questions. Late that night Guy will be working on a freehand piece into the late hours and will answer any interesting questions that roll in.
Tickets are available for viewing the event online or for attending live at Euro Tattoo in Rockford Illinois, about 2 hours from Chicago or an hour from Ohare Airport. The event will run from noon Central time until around late that night, with a couple meal breaks. Existing Reinventing The Tattoo subscribers will get a free limited edition hoodie- if you aren’t a subscriber and you want this hoodie you’ll need to subscribe first and then purchase your Reinventing Live ticket.
This is a new, compact format for sharing a lot of information in a single day. We are excited about the possibilities and hope that you can join us!

The next major seminar has been added to the Reinventing curriculum! This is the Contrast seminar that I gave last year in St.Louis, diving deep into what contrast really means in a tattoo in terms of using value, color, focus, outlines and other variables to create visually strong, long-lasting tattoos. It can be found on page 2.3.14 at the end of the Contrast chapter and features work by Steve Butcher, Phil Garcia, Alex Pancho, Tofi, Paul Acker and other amazing talents in an effort to show the contrast subject across a diverse range of styles.
