Tattoo Energy December 2018 /January 2019
An issue on the road (from the editorial by Miki Vialetto)
You rarely come across tattooers who haven’t seen travel as a critical part of their professional development. Because getting experience of different cultures is absolutely essential in a sector as global as this. And this is what is clear from the interviews in this issue of Tattoo Energy…
Dashuai Ma: Inspiration on the road
She became a professional tattoo artist thanks to a great love of hers and a chance encounter with tattoo. Then there was a period of growth and artistic development as Dashuai-ma travelled and gained experience as a tattooist on the road in Europe, America and Asia. She now lives in Beijing where she has opened her own shop, Haloink tattoo.
Mark Walker: In the palm of your hand
He’s renowned for his hand tattoos. A challenge for some, but for Mark Walker, just part of a normal working day.
Raimo Marti: The power play of Realism
Ex pro ice hockey player and now a tattoo artist specialised in Black & Grey Realism, the indomitable Raimo Marti works in his own very personal Danish kingdom. This physical and spiritual place is called ‘Black Mirror Tattoo’, but its future seems to echo to the call of another powerful force. That of the California sunshine.
