Top Row: Photographer Ellen Stagg set up shop in her home for this month's shoot with racecar driver Chica Loca ("Inked People," page 44). "Everything went smoothly, besides people being allergic to my cat," she explains. Stagg has six tattoos, including a purple Corazón de Sangria on her inner right arm, a purple and pink cobra on her left foot, a green rattlesnake on her right foot, and a large golden eagle on her lower back.

Because the INKED staff is made up of New Yorkers, we don't drive much. Owning a bicycle in Brooklyn is hard enough. A car? Forget about it. Instead, we're stuck shoving through crowds, cramming on to subways, and trying not to puke in the back of cabs (that would be me).

HIGH ROLLER INKED is the best tattoo mag! I just got my first tattoo from Mister Cartoon [above left]. Who else to do a clown? He also painted my wheelchair [above right], I'm a medical marijuana smoker. I was in a drinking-and-driving accident when I was 15 and I'm paralyzed from my armpits down.

Wait a feckin' second—it's not St. Patrick's Day. And hell, it's not even March. So why are we talking about Ireland's delicious brown liquid? Because the Irish "water of life" isn't just for the days when you wear a plastic green bowler hat and try to pronounce "shillelagh" after drinking too many car bombs.

KING KHAN AND THE SHRINES The Supreme Genius of King Khan and The Shrines [Vice] Wig-wearing rock 'n' roll nut job King Khan is a true international mess. The Montreal musician spent time in a few bands before landing in Berlin, forming the nine-piece soul freak-out The Shrines, and flooding the globe with fuzzed-out rock.

The history of pinstriping stretches back in one long, straight, hand-painted line all the way to horse-drawn carriages and further back in time to cave walls. What's certain is this: You can't talk about pinstriping without hearing the name Kenny Howard, best known as Von Dutch.

It's also available in Slayer, KISS, and Lynyrd Skynyrd editions.

A drive down Spain's eastern coast is a winding road trip through a bit of everything, from historical castles and wildflower fields to chic hotels and nude beaches. Plan a September road trip along the coast from Valencia to Peñíscola and you'll get to experience it all, including the Castellón Tattoo Convention, which takes place September 5-7.
