About

Since 1987
I’m the webmaster and curator of Ink’d Soul, a personal blog I run out of my passion for skin art, and my fascination with tattooing and tattoo subculture for the past three decades. In its current form, this little project of mine is comprised of three growing parts:

The idea

The blog

The first is a blog series I’m running, about history, anthropology, and art. It’s my exploration into tattoo art in different cultures, and although it’s in its nascent stages, I’d love to grow it one day to include interviews, deep-dives, and guest posts from experts in each style

The news

The second is my personally curated news and announcements feed, and a catalog of designs I’ve found and shared, with the aim of both creating a little collection of artworks and artists I admire (with credit!), and to help share tattoo art with some of my visitors.

The directory

The third and final part is a directory of artists and studios from around the globe. And this is where I need your help! Ink’d Soul is fast-growing, especially with the frequent content. I would like to feature more artists (for free) and create an extensive and organized directory of tattoo artists from all the world’s major cities

 

As a tattoo is grounded on living skin, so its essence emotes a poignancy unique to the mortal human condition. A tattoo is a true poetic creation, and is always more than meets the eye.

Find Your Artists.

I’ve got big plans for this little project of mine, and I’d love to hear back from you! Let me know if you’d like to be a part of this.

Tattoos have a power and magic all their own. They decorate the body but they also enhance the soul.
