That's right, and we are looking for artists and guest artists for late 08, 09 and beyond. Please send a few pictures of your best tattoo work as well as a few pictures of any other mediums you work in. We attend major conventions during the year and have a good relationship with tattoo media and publications.
The ideal person for this job is someone who has taken their tattooing as far as it can go in the shop they work in, and is looking to work in a studio with artists who encourage each other to grow, and push their limits in tattooing and other mediums.
I can to help artists willing to re-locate to NY.
Serious professional artists only. If you suck, please don't email me until you get WAY better...LOL!
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 516 623 5665
Katie will take all your info

Mike demos "true fire". This is one of the hottest effects around....Oh crap...did I just type that..
Mike explains the underlaying of white paint followed by translucent "candy" colors to achieve this effect. Later in the evening he showed everyone how it was done. He also showed some great freehand and loose masking techniques.
Javier Soto demonstrates his skin tone system for portrait style artwork. Even Mike snaps a few pictures of this one. Awesome! Javi rules!
All the participants got to do the "drills". Dot patterns, line segments, shading and dagger strokes were explained.
Javier's skin tone demo in progress. Beautiful!
Everyone got one on one time with the artists to ask any questions. Here Javier explains single and double action airbrushes.
Class ran into the night...
Shooting out of sequence....Scorsese on film...
Everyone got their hands dirty! That's what its all about!
Javier is so good you could swear he had a third arm. See it??? Whoa!
Mike makes it look WAY too easy. The airbrush is an extension of his hand for sure.
Thanks again to Mike and Javier for giving this class every year. If you would like to meet them and have an opportunity to try our airbrushing , they will be giving a short free demo this year at our annual "Brushes, Needles and Burnouts" event. Please check the website for details and a schedule of demos and happenings during this two day event.
Thanks for looking!

Another visit from an inspiring custom artist. Man are we lucky! It seems like one day we are talking about how much we admire someone and then "POOF" there they are!
I even got my own little paint pen demo from the man himself. Amazing to see just how much Drew can do with simple water-based paint pens. He customizes everything from guitars and motor-cycles to his specialty...surfboards.
The quintessential cool surfer dude, he is laid back and doing what he loves. You can tell he is for real. All about making bad-ass art for people to enjoy.
Paint pens are way more versatile then you would think, and apparently they taste good too!!! Frankly I think there may be an easier way to show how child safe the paint is, but hey...this works.
Thanks again to Drew and Maria Brophy for taking the time out to come by and see our shop. Hope we see them again real soon. In the meantime visit our webstore to purchase Drew's DVD on how to paint with paint pens. It is sure to get you up and painting everything in the house!

It was great! Cool to meet with Guy Aithcinson, Jon Clue, Cory Kruger, Nick Baxter, Bob Tyrell, Nikko Hurtado and all the rest. So inspired I can hardly stand it. The painting demos were awesome. Guy Nikko, Cory, Jon, Michelle Wortman, and Alex Gray....WOOOO!
My first convention in about 10 years. Glad I went. Great to meet all of you who stopped by our booth as well. See you all in Hell City!!
