Tattooed Chefs Ala Village Voice E-mail

nyc-chefs-and-their-tattoosI'm posting this late but you can still see it online. Last weeks Village Voice cover story profiled several NYC tattooed chefs . There's a great shot of this weeks super star Steve Von Reipen working on  vegetarian bartender Brie Huling. For an article on tattooed chefs I'm surprised at how un-tattooed most of the chefs are in the article. There's no mention of our friend Aaron Sanchez who is working his way to a body suit, or Chris Santos  (full sleeves) or Sam Mason (lots of tattoos). I would say it's more about up and coming chefs but they include Johnny Luzzini who they say "might be the most famous" of all the tattooed chefs. I would say that's debatable. (Chef vs City , Chopped. ..) Either way we're happy to be included but I felt the need to give a shout out to my chef friends who've sweated out a few hours in the chair.

Here's a comment that was posted to Brad's post "Tattin' Aint Easy"

Comment:
    So question for you then...I have been interested in tattooing ever since I got out of the marines...I did 4 months at a shop in xxxxxx  and had just spent the last 8 months in a shop in hollywood,fl but alas came home for family matters and so forth...I have been getting the cold shoulder from alot of shops and dont want to be a scrather...I want to learn from someone who's willing to teach but feel truely lost after being back...any advice?

 We've kind of opened a can of worms documenting our apprentice Mina learning how to tattoo. We get lots of people asking the same question of how they can find an apprenticeship. I think one thing to ask yourself is what do you have to offer to make someone want to teach you to tattoo?

People bring in pen and pencil doodles on sheets of notebook paper without one image that would pass as a tattoo. Buy some tattoo magazines and look at the tattoos you think are impressive then look at your own drawings and see how they compare. Walk into a tattoo shop with drawings or paintings that are going to impress the people you show them to. If you look at the tattoo magazines from 10-15 years ago there were only a few tattooers with truely jaw dropping work by todays standards. Now there's no way to even keep track of all the amazing names in the business. What do you have to offer? Why would someone want to teach you?  I'm not trying to be mean or elitist I'm just explaining the impressions I get from the people I've met and the work I've seen from the aspiring tattoo artist who have come our way.

Also get tattooed! I question anyone's commitment to be a tattoo artist if they aren't compelled to get tattooed from people who's work they admire. That's a way to connect with artist and learnfrom them. I learn something every time I get tattooed. It IS important to have tattoos to be a tattoo artist.

In closing....

To everyone who wants to tattoo:

You've got a lot of competition and you haven't even started tattooing.

Hello everybody!

After a couple of months of tattooing co-workers and friends i am now ready to tattoo anyone else who is willing!

If you would like an apprentice tattoo please e-mail me at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it and we can book an appointment.

The tattoos that i'll be doing should be no larger than the palm of my hand and simple! the best bet would be to choose something traditional american style or something like kanji or small tribal.

I've attached some of the tattoos i've done so far for a preview 

I appreciate everyones help!
