BMEtv – Dan Montgomery

For today’s BMEtv video we’ve got a special treat for you.  The BME World Tour gang had a chance to sit down with Dan Montgomery, and talk to him about life with a prosthetic eye.  When Dan was young he had an accident with a pair of scissors, which left him blind in one eye.  Due to complications later in life, he had to have the eyeball removed, and has since lived with what is commonly referred to as a glass eye.

Dan’s extremely well spoken, and it’s definitely worth the time to check out the interview.

BMEtv – Alex “Rusty” Cairns

Today’s BME World Tour video takes us to TatuDharma in Syndey where the crew sat down with Alex “Rusty” Cairns.  We talked with Alex about how he got involved with tattooing, and his take on the business side of the art.

Also, you may have noticed that the Anders video was taken down.  It turns out I posted that one ahead of schedule and our editors hadn’t had a chance to finalize it (hence the lack of graphics and wrong aspect ratio).  I’ll get it back up as soon as they get a chance to finalize the editing.

In the meantime, let’s take a look at today’s BMEtv interview.
