Check out this great Dan Santoro interview. Vice has done it again! It's interesting, fun, and insightful. I wish all tattoo related media was of this quality. I've got some major peeves about tattooers and their interviews. Most of the time they read like the back of a baseball card. The same old boring stats about how long you've been tattooing, where you have worked, ect. I think most magazines could do away with their boring format for interviewing and move to a standardized fact sheet, thus eliminating the trite bullshit and publish more pictures. I don't know about you, but that's what I'm after when I peruse a tattoo publication. I'm sure it's very much the interviewers fault, but who cares. My point is this- Dan's video is amazing.
On the same note, Marcus Kuhn's Gypsy Gentlemen is a fantastic peice of current tattoo media. A great insight as to what tattooing is really about for those of us who really care. Worth checking out. Hat's off Marcus!
