Live in Columbus, Ohio? Looking for a job in the industry? I got an email from the good folks at Evolved and it seems they’re hiring. Here’s the info:
Evolved is now interviewing to fill a full time tattoo artist position.
The minimum requirements are:
5 years professional experience, current certification in blood borne pathogens, first aid, and cpr, hepatitis b vaccination, declination, or titer test, a solid printed and digital portfolio, a peachy, cheery disposition, and a dependable and professional attitude.
Go ahead, impress me. First one to leave a comment saying the correct artist and album that this design is from wins…..nothing. You will get to be a modblog star for a day though, and that my friends is priceless.
One of the rad things about being a modblog author is discovering new artist. I am shocked to find an artist of this caliber who resides in my home state who I have never even heard of. This piece was done by Gabriel Cece at Rocksteady Tattoo in Hampton, VA. This piece is cool and represents an album from one of my favorite bands, but the work on his site is even more impressive. Take a minute to check out his site if you like color blends and soft or non-existant outlines.
Mike Rubendall is based out of Massapequa, New York but you’ll often find him anywhere around the world at various tattoo conventions with Henning Jorgenson (BMEtv Episode 3!). If you walk into a shop around the world, you’ll no doubt see flash on the walls drawn by Mike. Norm and I even saw tons of his flash in the walls of a shop we stopped in at on Maui, Hawai’i. Check out the video to learn a little bit more about Mike.
I was really excited to post this interview with Henning Jørgensen not only because he’s an amazing tattoo artist and all around nice guy but because it’s a great in depth interview which is the direction we’re working to. Considering this is our third video to date, I’m pretty proud of the direction that it’s heading.
As soon as I can get some more videographers on board to help out, we’ll be able to get a lot more videos put together and posted. If you’re interested in interviewing your local or favorite tattooer, let me know. You can always film them (along with background footage ie “b-roll”) and send the raw video for me to edit and post.
This is the second in the series I’ve put together for BME. I meant to post it yesterday but there were some issues here and there getting on the internet. Bugs is a tattoo from England, working out of a shop called Evil from the Needle. He’s currently working in Venice, CA. I tried to get some link action going on for this write up but my internet is failing miserably.
The next video that I’m going to post later this week is with Henning Jørgensen, which I can’t wait for. It’s one of the best ones we’ve done so far. If you like these videos, don’t forget to check out our first video interview with Trevor McStay. Also, please post comments on if you like the videos or not so I know if this is something I should continue doing. I’ve got 4 more that need to be edited that are already filmed. Like I said, I can’t wait because I’m very excited. I’ve been compiling the list of suggestions from the other entries but if you have more suggestions on artists you’d like to see interviewed, please post them below!
I mentioned a while back that Trevor McStay was coming to visit BME before heading up to the San Jose Tattoo Convention so I figured we’d have a little bit of a chat while he was putting my leg through the paces of getting a kick ass leg sleeve. Thanks to Trevor for being the inaugural interview and hopefully the next 6 videos we’re in the process of editing will be ready to go shortly!
