Art that adorns the flesh…

Wrong Reality

October 7th, 2013 by

I don’t know why I’m doing this, I promise I’m not trying to piss you guys off.  I think it’s probably because the second that I saw this, I was more than a little disgusted.  I can’t take this sort of pain alone, so I’m passing it off on all of you.  This video is an insult to anyone who has ever called themselves or been called an artist.  Giving away their secrets?  No honey, that’s not why they’re mad at you.  They’re mad at you because you’re reducing an art form to paint by numbers and claiming that yours is an accurate depiction of a tattoo artist’s creative process.  And the only reason why you’re doing it is because you know you can make money off it.  Not art.  Not an artist.  And you know what?  I’ll go as far as arguing that this isn’t tattoo – at least not any concept of it that I care to acknowledge.
