Tattoo of the week: Taking Ink to the Schools

When Stevey aka Blackboitatted e-mailed us images of his tattoos to be featured on, we were floored by the detailing in his ink work and knew that this guy was serious about his body work.  We later discovered that he has started his own company in Boston called Addicted 2 Ink, where he plans to expand the tattoo life style to different sectors such as after school programs and kid's events.  His brand is already located in Virginia, NYC, ATL, Chicago,…

Tattoo of the week: The Chest Cassette, Rap vs Rock

Right in the middle of his chest is a cassette courted with wings, scribed with the words "Rap/Rock." Our feature this week, 25-year-old Steven, said that a cassette mixed with rap and rock changed his life and we found that so dope that he inked it on his skin. Two spray cans mirror the cassette on both sides for his love for graffitti and art. His day time job is a…

Tattoo of the week: Lesson #1, Know thy artist

Our feature this week, 22-year-old, Melissa from Florida, currently has four tattoos with a full length ivy vines that cover her back in memorial of her step-grandmother. Most of our submissions have no regrets for any of the work that they've had on their skin, but Melissa regrets the tattoo artist that did one of her tattoos who had never inked dark skin. Word to the wise, ask your tattoo artist if they are comfortable tattooing your skin…

Tattoo of the Week: I'm Looking at You, Creep

Have you ever felt like someone was watching you, but there was no one in the room? We can't imagine how much more creepy it would be to have a detailed eye tatted on your arm that would pretty much glare at you whenever you moved your arm up and down. This week we are featuring Aviun Knives, a 20-year-old, artist and college student, who has an all seeing eye on his left forearm as one of his five tattoos. He says it has no literal meaning but got…
