SOLIDARITY
[no value]

Tattooing, though it has served as a vehicle for solidarity since neolithic times, is no longer reserved for mysterious relatives who were too wild in the '70s, freedom fighters in faraway lands, or ancient criminals and bandits in China.

What year did you start tattooing? In 1997. Opened my shop in 1998. How did you get into tattooing? I gave myself a tattoo when I was 17 years old. This was my start of how I got into tattooing. After that I made a trip to the U.S. to see what the tattoos in America were really like.

What year did you start tattooing? I started right after high school. That was 2010. I bought my first tattoo machine and I did one tattoo but I didn't end up continuing it. I did a couple dragons for my friend and learned I needed to learn a lot more.

What year did you start tattooing? I haven't been tattooing long—March 10, 2007. Why anyone would want to read an interview with a tattooer who's only five and a half years in is beyond me. The hell do I know? How did you get into tattooing? Probably the same as everyone else, for the most part.

What year did you start tattooing? I started eight years ago. As a professional, maybe six. How did you get into tattooing? When I was young I grew up with watching my grandpa—he was a big painter. Then I finished the school of art in Florence. I was a writer as well, deeply involved in street art, and a tattoo addict.

What year did you start tattooing? I started tattooing in 2004. How did you get into tattooing? I was trying to get involved in tattooing whilst traveling for a while with no luck. My only exposure to tattooing at the time was through magazines, and I found that most of the artists I respected worked in the Bay Area.

What year did you start tattooing? In late 2007. How did you get into tattooing? As a child I wanted to be a painter. I met tattooing in my teenage years. So that dream changed in a few years. Becoming a tattoo artist was a dream—and then a reality.

What year did you start tattooing? I think I started tattooing around 2000, but my memory is shot. How did you get into tattooing? I was working road construction and I hated every minute of it. I hated being in the sun and I hated waking up early.

What year did you start tattooing? Late 1998, 1999. I was more of a hang-around at the local shop, but I knew I wanted to pursue this. I started to tattoo friends on the side; I wasn't allowed to tattoo at the shop yet, so it was more of a discreet thing at first.

What year did you start tattooing? Early 2009, but in 2010 I restarted at Sink or Swim and had to relearn everything I'd been "taught." How did you get into tattooing? Well, I had a lot of friends who were tattooers, and they always offered me work in their shops, but I wanted to know that I got it on my own merit.

What year did you start tattooing? I started tattooing in 1997. How did you get into tattooing? The popular answer these days is "tattooing found me." It holds true for so many of us. Being involved in the punk rock scene in the early '90s, I had been interested in tattoos from seeing various work on people at shows, but tattooing wasn't like it is today.

New Hampshire's Live Free or Die Tattoo Convention was a great time this year, loaded with tattoos and piercings, as would be expected. More than just the usual tables of vendors and artists, Live Free or Die offered other entertainment—including live suspension by the alluring Crash that was quite the shocker for those who had not experienced hooks in skin before!
