Art that adorns the flesh…

Casting Call

November 4th, 2010 by

Love ’em or hate ’em, the reality TV series is a part of our pop-culture.  While some may cringe at any mention of tattoo and reality TV in the same sentence, the truth is that the current surge in popularity and to some degree the mainstream acceptance that tattoos now enjoy is due at least in some small part to the ol’ reality TV monster.

Of course, that doesn’t mean that you have to like it.  And I wouldn’t begrudge you in the least for wanting every last mention of tattoo artists, tattooing and the tattoo industry as a whole to be as far away from anything remotely resembling a reality TV programme as Cheez Whiz is from resembling actual cheese.  But hell, I like to play devil’s advocate from time to time, so I have to say that if you’re a tattoo artist who wants their work to reach a wide audience in a hurry, then it’s certainly arguable that there are worse things for you than being cast on a tattoo based reality TV show.

With that in mind, I’ve decided to drop a bit of info here for anyone who might live in the New York area – or for that matter, who might be willing to relocate to the New York area – in order to make it big in a little tattoo reality TV.

‘Original Media, producers of hit television shows Miami Ink and LA Ink are casting for a new tattoo series set in New York City. Casting outgoing and talented tattoo artists, apprentices, and shop managers and asst managers in the New York and surrounding areas to be a part of a brand new crew headed by one of the biggest names in the tattoo world. If you are interested in auditioning email  If you are energetic, opinionated, funny, and passionate about tattooing, then we are looking for you.  You must be local to NY or be willing to live in NYC and be hired as local talent for 12 weeks starting at the end of the year.  Please put “Tattoo Artist” in the subject title.’

You never know, it could change your life…
