This week we have a pretty cool article to share with you all! A lot of times during discussion or design stages of tattoos, people are surprised at how certain design elements are done with aging of the tattoo in mind. Our brave leader Jessie suggested that this is something we delve into this week, and I couldn't agree more. This isn't just good information to consider when discussing or designing your next tattoo, but it is also just kind of interesting to know in general!

While we have previously covered the ascent of tattoos through time periods, we haven't look at "origins". What is the oldest tattoo we know of? What was the purpose or meaning of them to those cultures? Why not check with The Smithsonian?!

I found this article legitimately interesting, and hope you guys do as well!

This week I sit down with Studio 85 owner and visionary, Jessie Villars. Thank you to everyone who submitted questions this week, we hope to continue to have increase input from you guys as this moves forward!

So to begin; How long did you apprentice?
A year. There was a lot of that time that I feel wasn’t utilized in
the best manner, but that is here nor there. It took a year and it
shaped who I am in many ways.

When did you start your career as a tattoo artist?
My interest began while away at co...

So as most of you know, we opened up a poll one week ago to test the waters on a new interactive Q and A between you guys and the artists here at Studio 85! The poll was closed late last night, and the votes are in!

While we did receive a good number of votes, it was a slightly underwhelming turn out. Now, I know that opening a separate page to cast a vote may have been a bit of a task - but this next part, should you choose to accept, requires very little! We now have our Q and A order (which yo...

On Thursdays, in addition to randomly supplying you with informative articles, we will also be rolling out a new participatory event that we hope you guys will enjoy!

Besides common misconceptions about the INDUSTRY of tattooing, there are also a lot of misconceptions about the PEOPLE of tattooing. That being said, every Thursday we will be posting a Q & A with each of our artists. Once an artist has been the subject of the Q & A, the...

This week we are going to run through a quick game of "Myth or Truth". You would be surprised the with the amount of people who believe some of these myths to be true, which in some cases makes people who would otherwise want a tattoo never pull the trigger! So let's start cutting the heads off of these myths, paving the way for your first (or next) tattoo!

Myth or Truth: Tattoo guns contain only a single needle.

Myth: In reality, tattoo guns contain multiple needles which are usually grouped in o...

 No matter how you feel about the recent election, there is solace found in the fact that things are always in a state of flux. Nothing is constant or endless, and every discomfort or inconvenience we encounter in life is a chance to have personal growth in the midst of the collective evolution of our specie. To evolve is to develop gradually, over time, which we all are. It's gradual, and will always have an 'out' for every in, a 'bad' for every 'good', but that is it's balance - and it is wort...
