Sammy & Sid

Here’s another lovely (and thought-provoking) video courtesy of Shawn (more).. Read on Macduff!

“I dug this footage up when I was preparing a class I was preparing to teach on behalf of the APP; it features Sailor Sid Diller interviewing “Tattoo Sammy” from Frankfort, West Germany.”

“Sammy appeared in P.F.I.Q. #18 (1983) and #19 as the magazine’s first documented tongue piercing. This clip has audio and video glitches (that Roo was kind enough to clean up to the best of his ability) present in the original VHS; that’s why these are so important to share. Once the original masters degrade – this stuff could be lost forever. I hope you guys are enjoying these glimpses into our not so distant past!

Enjoy! – Shawn”

Fat City Reprise (Tattooed Musical Beasties)

I was lucky enough to be able to tag along with Tommy Agriodimas while he was doing a photo shoot with Fat City Reprise. After chatting for a while about their tattoos and their Philly origins, I figured I’d video some of it to share on BME. We did a quick interview and I threw together this video in the cab of a 26′ moving truck during the drive from NYC to LA.

Fist Full Of Metal!

I was going to intro this video but due to its awesome magnitude, it needs no introduction. Plus I’m already in the video so why bother writing when I don’t have to!

Nature gives you the face you have at twenty, but it’s up to you to merit the face you have at fifty 10mm/7mm nose tusks, 25mm septum and 53mm/25mm lips.

VIMBY Video: Paul Booth


Friend of BME, Ary from VIMBY Video, just sent us this new piece profiling a man who needs no introduction, Paul Booth, at his Last Rites studio in New York City. Paul discusses trades he’s made for tattoo work (example: a torture chair), tattooing rock stars, shows off “Skeleton Christ,” and more.

My Nipple’s Exploding With Delight!

Have you ever woken up in the morning, looked through bleary eyes* at your reflection in the mirror and been overwhelmed by the desire to:

a) Do something new and exciting with your nipple piercing.
b) Make lots of loud fizzing/popping/banging noises to annoy the neighbours who kept you up until 3am playing the same drum and bass track over and over again at top volume.
c) Play with flames.

I know I have!

Bern reflected on this for a while and came up with a fine way to start the day/enact revenge, he combined a), b) and c), to make, erm, c)a)b) this…

RAFALMAO

I was pretty close to wetting my pants giggling when I first watched this karaoke session that Rafa sent over. I especially love the occasional hair fixing!

If you’d like to sing along with him the lyrics (plus some screenshots) are below the video..

Lay your head down just for now
Space fills your mind and you dream awhile
The sun floods your room as you drown
Your lungs full of breathing
Your true love believe

One more time to say I love you always
and keeping faith letting love find a way

Move let the stars suck you in
Hold tight, the night’s air and breathe again
Let go and be burnt by the moon
Your hands full of feeling your true love, Believe

One more time to say I love you always
and keeping faith letting love find a way

One more time to say I love you always
and keeping faith letting love find a way

I love you to death
Could you love me to death (x2)
Could you love me

One more time to say I love you always
and keeping faith letting love find a way

One more time to say I love you always
and keeping faith letting love find a way

Letting love find a way (x3)
