You are going to hate some of the music acts we cover in the following pages. There’s no way around it when dealing with something as subjective as music or, frankly, any type of art. You might even sneer at some of the tattoos and photographs on the following pages—there is no such thing as the perfect piece or composition.

BETTER THAN HIGHLIGHTS FOR CHILDREN We are often asked what to look out for in a tattoo shop to indicate that it is on the up-and-up. Chiefly, always seek out an autoclave and overall cleanliness—a tattoo shop should be as clean as a doctor’s office or a kitchen after Gordon Ramsey has berated the staff.

If you follow Inked on various forms of social media you know we are fairly prolific when it comes to posting pictures of tattoos, girls, memes and the occasional skull-themed wedding cake (or a puppy photo that we couldn’t resist). For the most part our audience is receptive to the photos we select to share with the community but once in a while a tattoo or a model won’t just be “liked” but adored.

If Richie Velazquez was born 20 years earlier, he would have painted all of the vomit for Ren and Stimpy. If he was born a century ago, he would be painting drippy moustaches on Charlie Chaplin and Joseph Stalin, and if he lived during the Renaissance, the Mona Lisa would be covered in a mozzarella money shot.

WHAT’S THE SCENE LIKE AT WASTED GRAIN? I would describe it as a Prohibition-style bar that offers live music and an upstairs nightclub. Whether you’re in the mood for live jams, club music or an oversized chill patio scene, we have it covered.

If you have ever signed up for a dating website or app (Farmers Only, right?) you know you have to build a profile with your hobbies to find someone with compatible interests. Most looks fade and pheromones die off, but common interests keep couples together.

It is a common scenario: You're walking around some city’s downtown and a guy will hand you a glossy card promoting some club. The flier—three times the size of a business card-looks like it was made by an overzealous design major who utilizes seven different fonts, overuses Photoshop and features an impossibly gorgeous girl who has never and will never step foot into the place advertised.

The Harley-Davidson rider is someone who rolls their own way. While the motorcycles are works of art as soon as they are rolled out of the factory, they are also fully customizable. Harley is a heritage brand that truly understands the spirit of individuality.

If you picked up this magazine by its cover you'll love this book. Tattoo Super Models is a celebration of inked/Inked girls by Christian Saint, the photographer who shot DJ Megan Daniels for this issue. Long only cast into gritty, dirty settings, Saint puts lovely tattooed girls on their rightful pedestal, in rarified air.

How has your “boob twerking” been received? Oh God, can we just call it pec flexing? My friend posted the video on one of the tattoo-related Facebook pages with a couple of million followers and put “boob twerk" in the caption—the next day I was on TMZ, they were also calling it “boob twerking,” and so it has been ever since.

In between wardrobe changes, lighting up and smiling for the camera, Caskey proves to be a star in the making. During this, one of his first big photoshoots, he was the center of attention even when he was just kicking it on the couch. His Facebook post earlier this morning suggested he'd like a bit of pot—he was new to New York City—though he didn't need that or the help of other recreational lubricants to tell a good story.

A solid tour schedule kept metal band Of Mice and Men on the road most of the past year, but vocalist Austin Carlile still managed to prioritize his tattoo sessions in between sets. The day before the band hit the road for 32 headlining dates in support of Restoring Force and Restoring Force: Full Circle he sat in with Franco Vescovi.

We were fortunate enough to be able to work with the new face and body of male modeling for his biggest shoot yet.

The former Navy SEAL received medical discharge and found the same camaraderie of military life in the tattoo community.

HOW WAS YOUR FIRST SHOP EXPERIENCE? Being in a small religious college town, we were required to wear uniforms, clock in-and-out on a time card and had no control over our own schedules. We priced by a clear sizing chart that had varying sizes of circles dictating the price of the tattoo, which you held up in front of the artwork and whichever circle it fit into was the designated price.

We have a lot of fun at the studio. We are all super nerds, we even dedicated the month of April to animation tattoos—comic books, video games, cartoons—all on special. We do a lot of theme days: Caturday is every Saturday, on May the 4th, we do Star Wars tattoos and my favorite is the $30 Throw Out.
