It's a loooong road
Today I did my flash sheet for Tattoo Artist Magazine.
I had decided to do a Rambo flash sheet...don't ask why because I don't know how that happened! Well here it is..well the shitty scanned version of it that is. BUT This is not for grabs anyway! If you wanna use this then please buy the flash through the magazine.
Warning! Rant ahead:
This was brought to my attention the other day:
Apparently sleazy rock party promoters are the only ones doing anything for the Danish tattoo scene!
Before i was informed of this, i had no idea that making parties at nightclubs, with strippers, a way too young audience, loads of drunk people, tattooing in a backroom of the club, offering the logo of the event tattooed for free, was considered doing something for the "scene"!
No idea... I would not have guessed it!
Silly me, here I was, thinking that the people making a difference for the Danish tattoo scene were the tattooers, who tried to show people what is going on it the wide world of tattooing, travelling and educating themselves, and raising the standard of tattooing.
The ones who are trying to educate customers about what to look for when getting a tattoo.
The people who are promoting great tattooers by showing their work and telling the people what is actually possible these days.
But I was wrong. I was thinking about sooo many different people but no... Party promoters!! That's who!!
Now that i think about it, I bet that's how it is all over the world.
And come to think of it... how about the people who create clothing lines with tattoo designs on them? They got it right too I guess!! Awesome people!!
Good job assholes!! Don't expect a thank you basket from me any time soon!!
