This is our art issue, though technically all of our installments are “art issues.” As tattooing has transformed from a craft to a fine art—and a viable career-many talented artisans who would have tried their hand at, say, painting, architecture, or even advertising 30 years ago are instead picking up the needle.

Funny enough I was at this party in the hills of Silver Lake and met Greg Chapman from Schott Leather; we were introduced as sharing a spread in INKED! We got along great over some drinks and it looks like there may be a pretty crazy collaboration between Schott and Cast of Vices.

My first tattoo was done in South Africa at Electric Eye Tattoo by this guy named Bugsy. I was 14 and wanted to be the first person in my family of 11 to get a tattoo. I failed that mission. It’s three stars in brown ink on my hip and it looks like freckles.

With the '80s coloring contemporary fashion, Betsey Johnson’s time has come again-and during this resurgence she’s designed temporary tattoos. The skin art looks to be part tattoo, part jewelry and, like her line, it incorporates the use of skulls, bows, spiders, and hearts.

DRINK
JUICE BOXES
Drink inside the box.

JENNY & FRANÇOIG FROM THE TANK RED
$40
Jenny & François specialize in "natural wines” and bottle the exact same big, earthy Côtes du Rhône blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Carignan that comes in this box and sell it for $15 a pop. This one holds the equivalent of four bottles and goes for $40. Even we can do that math.

Y+B MALBEC
Y+B stands for yellow and blue, which forms a color associated with environmentalism. See what they did there? And while that’s adorable, it wouldn’t be worth a hippie’s dirty, patchoulismelling drawers if the Malbec inside weren't good. But it is big, round, and jammy-great everyday stock.

BLACK BOX CABERNET SAUVIGNON
$22
It’s not the best cab in the world, but it is competent and you can serve it to friends and not look cheap. And with this three-liter bag-in-box going for $22 [the equivalent of less than $6 a bottle] you can afford to get three times as many people drunk.
Scott Alexander
Conventional wisdom would have you believe that if any culture takes wine too seriously, it’s the French. That same wisdom holds that over here in the U.S. we’re a bunch of unreconstructed heathens, swilling wine from the jug. Allow us to make a counter-argument: We aren’t heathens.

Kara Pound
When Donald Trump needed an elaborate way to promote plans to build a hotel in Dubai, he called on Nathan Sawaya. Over 10 days, with about 100,000 rectangular Lego bricks, Sawaya built a 14-foot-tall replica of the proposed structure. Sawaya’s also the guy Pete Wentz called on for the perfect wedding gift for his wife, Ashlee Simpson: a larger-thanlife yellow and black Lego bumblebee.

DUE DATE
Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis star in this road comedy that might be the Planes, Trains & Automobiles of our time. Downey plays an expectant father who is in a hurry to be by his wife’s side for the birth of their first child. Certain circumstances lead him to cross paths and hitch a ride with an inspiring actor named Ethan (Galifianakis). We’ve seen this formula before—and so has director Todd Phillips (he directed Road Trip and, better yet, The Hangover)—but we’d take Galifianakis over Tom Green any day.

UNSTOPPABLE
Director Tony Scott (True Romance, Domino) reunites with leading man Denzel Washington in this nail-biting thriller about a massive runaway train nicknamed “The Beast” that’s loaded with toxic cargo. A veteran engineer (Washington) and a conductor (Chris Pine from Star Trek) team up to stop this unmanned locomotive before it causes a massive disaster. Scott is no stranger to top-notch thrillers, and with stars like Washington, Pine, and Rosario Dawson along for the ride, we’re thinking it could be Snakes on a Train. —G.M.

CENTURION
Neil Marshall’s Centurion is a ruthless and gory survival epic set in 117 A.D. The gorgeously shot film centers on a conflict between the Roman army and a Piet tribe in the Scottish Highlands. Quintus Dias, one of the survivors of a bloody ambush, must lead his fellow soldiers through unfamiliar territory with hopes of reaching a distant Roman settlement, all the while trailed by a ruthless bunch of Piet savages. It’s Deliverance meets Gladiator with the gore and brutality of Braveheart. We highly recommend it. —G.M.

Family Portrait
Sophie Crumb: Evolution of a Artist is collection of works from tattooer and cartoonist that offers a constantly shifting portrait of Crumb through her rebellious coming of age in New York and Paris, culminating in her entry into marriage and motherhood. Prepared in collaboration with her parents-world-renowned cartoonists Aline and R. Crumb-the sometimes poignant and often hilarious volume is Sophie’s unique take on the trademark trippy Crumb style of dark, subversive humor.

ART RELAY
Inspired by the Exquisite Corpse game (think the telephone game but with really creative adults), 100 indie artists pass the narrative baton page by page. The Exquisite Book is bound accordion-style-allowing for each of the 10 chapters to be viewed as a continuous whole-what they create Is a conversation more interesting than the linear story itself. -A.V.

ZOMBIES > VAMPIRES
Since George A. Romero’s breakthrough film, Night of the Living Dead, zombies have been a fixture in American pop culture. But of late they’ve lost their luster to blood suckers, thanks to True Blood, Vampire Diaries, and something called Twilight. This fall, the brilliant people at AMC, the channel behind Mad Men and Breaking Bad, give brain eaters their proper due with The Walking Dead. Hollywood heavyweight Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption) is working on the series based on Robert Kirkman’s Eisner Award-winning comic about a cop searching for his family in a postapocalyptic world ruled by the undead. Let’s recap: One of the most critically acclaimed comics of the last 10 years is being adapted by the director of Shawshank for the channel that currently makes the best shows on TV. And it's about zombies. Sundays this fall, Robert Pattinson can suck it.

ASSASSIN’S CREED: BROTHERHOOD
The most badass killer in video games speaks Italian, collects Renaissance art, and does most of his dirty work with sleight of hand. Brotherhood picks up where Assassin’s Creed II left off, with master assassin/debonair playboy Ezio hunting down the Templars and pissing off the corrupt papacy in the process. For the first time in the series, Brotherhood also features a multiplayer mode that pits your assassination skills against others. Be careful as you stalk your prey—that inconspicuous bystander minding his own business in the piazza could be wielding the dagger that will send you to your grave. Play if you like: Backstabbers, the Italian Renaissance

CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS
If you run your mouth about reaching the prestige ranking, puff your chest about handling digital firearms like a special forces vet, and talk shit to anyone within earshot about your superior fragging skills, man up with Black Ops’ four new wager-based multiplayer modes. True ass-kickers who effortlessly gun down opponents like they’re the Iraqi Republican Guard will rack up the points in a hurry and unlock new weapons. If you play like a noob, hone your skills by jumping into the Cold War-era single campaign, where you'll pilot an SR-71 Blackbird spy plane and crawl through dimly lit Vietnamese tunnels in search of worthy adversaries. Play if you like: Skill wagering, Cold War intrigue —M.B.

DRIVE
NOT JUST FOR SHOW
Concept cars are a creative pissing contest between automakers that serves as a catalyst for wild innovation and, every so often, a treat for consumers.
[no value]
RENAULT DEZIR
It's only fitting that French automaker Renault aimed to make a splash at the 2010 Paris Auto Show with a head-turning concept car, the Renault DeZir (the name is phonetically spelled like the French pronunciation for desire). This slick red two-seater has gull-wing doors, an electric drivetrain, and, huh, no rear window. No worries: Two back-up cameras give a panoramic view so you don’t squash the neighbor’s cat.
[no value]
AUDI E-TRON
In the last few years, Audi has introduced a series of electric car concepts under the E-Tron badge, none sicker than the Audi two-door E-Tron introduced at the 2010 Detroit Auto Show. The refined and sleek coupe will do 0 to 60 in under six seconds—that is, if it ever gets made. Audi plans to produce a limited number of an earlier E-Tron concept and gauge consumer interest. Fingers crossed.
[no value]
KIA RAY
For mainstream prestige, Hyundai came out with cool cars like the Genesis coupe, and Kia decided to up the ante with the Kia Ray concept that debuted at the 2010 Chicago Auto Show. This plug-in hybrid has Prius-level eco cred with styling borrowed from boy-racer rides like the Mitsubishi Evo and Subaru WRX. Its production status is to be determined, but it's an awe-inspiring machine—no need to add “for a Kia.”
[no value]
PORSCHE 918
They say form follows function, but nothing would want to follow the Porsche 918 Spyder concept, so we saved it for last. With three electric motors supplementing its V8 engine, the 918 should deliver 0 to 60 times in the low three-second range and a top speed near 200 miles per hour. The best thing about this jaw-droppingly gorgeous mid-engine machine? It’s going to be produced, in a limited run. Start saving your pennies.
Sam Jemielity
It takes years for a new car to go from idea to showroom reality, so the auto industry has gotten adept at predicting the future. And as shown by the spate of gas-guzzling muscle cars hitting the market right around the time of $4-a-gallon gas, they’re not always perfect.

With her punk rocker meets Demi Moore sex appeal (those eyes! that raspy voice! that Mohawk!) and her unmistakable, gorgeously grotesque choreography, 33-year-old Sonya Tayeh is one of the most brilliant new stars in the dance world. If you’ve seen Tayeh’s work, it was probably on Fox’s hit So You Think You Can Dance, where one of her compositions, to Jeff Buckley’s version of the perennial tearjerker “Hallelujah,” was praised by all three of the show’s judges (one even went so far as to call it the best dance featured during the show’s seven-year international run).

IT IS 5:15 A.M. SATURDAY MORNING and I'm standing in a tent with a can of Stroh’s in my hand, my eyelids getting heavy from the time and the drink. To my left is a heavyset girl wearing nothing but a bikini bottom. To my right is a shirtless man taking a hit out of a bong shaped like a human skull.

L.A. native Robert Atkinson went from airbrushing T-shirts at theme parks and fairs to outfitting tattoo collectors with body suits tailored in such a way to make the artwork appear organic on the body, as if the client had been born with his powerful Japanese-inspired art on them.

You have to want to find Sacred Tattoo. Nestled between SoHo’s upscale shopping district and the foreign flavors of Chinatown, the shop is housed in a second-floor studio on a busy commercial stretch of Broadway. Sacred is impossible to stumble upon, and you can easily pass it if you miss the inconspicuous sign reading “Tattoo” with arrows pointing up the staircase.

Why the simplistic, abstract work? It’s more or less the continuation of what my graphic work consisted of before tattooing. Skin is just a different medium. How did you get into tattooing? After art school I bought a machine to tattoo myself, and people started to ask me to tattoo them.

NAME: Michelle Maraño SHOP MANAGER AT: DaVIncI Tattoo, Brooklyn My boss, Gia Gurabanidze, had a piece of work done by Leo Krasnopolsky at another tattoo shop and loved the work so much that he plucked Leo and opened up this shop around him. We’ve only been here a month and already the neighbors look at us like we don't belong here.

To showcase fine art next to body art, Kat Von D opened up Wonderland Gallery adjacent to High Voltage Tattoo in West Hollywood. While the gossip rags pointed out that this was the first time Von D and Jesse James announced that they are a couple, we were much more intrigued by the work of Kevin Llewellyn (directly above) and by Lemmy’s hat.

It was the summer of Jelly Pool Parties for New Yorkers too hip for the Hamptons. Jelly threw eight Sunday shindigs at Brooklyn's Williamsburg Waterfront. The parties were free, showcased great ink, and featured acts like Chromeo, Cut Copy, and Cap'n Jazz—and that's just the C’s.
