Kat Von D at Guinness Book of World Records


Kat Von D makes her way into the Guinness Book of World Records for inking most tattoos in a 24 hours period.

On Friday noon she sat down for a contineous session of 24 hours to ink 400 tattoos at her High Voltage Tattoo parlor. Without food… without cigrette… and with just three breaks… she made the Guinness World Record for a cause as the money collected on the event will be donated to Vitamin Angels. The tattoos cost 20 bucks, and every 20 saved 80 kids from going blind. 400 x 80 = 32,000 kids, she said.

“During the entire 24 hour period, i never ate, and kept my consumptions of liquid to a bare minimum, to make sure i wouldnt have to stop tattooing to go to the bathroom at any point. i put on nicotine patches, so i wouldnt take any cigerette breaks. And during the entire 24 hours i took a maximum 3 breaks of no more than about 3 minutes, to drink an energy drink closer to the end, and to change into sweats at another point and stretch my hands which were starting to ache pretty fuckin bad.”

She also Apologized for inconvenience and Thanked all for being so supportive in realization of this record.

Bio Organic face tattoo

Jeff Johnson of Newbury Park, CA, has updated his tattoo gallery with his fresh work of art.

His tattoos are incredible and I liked his Bio Organic face tattoo on an arm from his latest update. He said,

“I was given alot of artistic freedom with this piece so I had alot of fun with it. A crazy face with tubing and some geo light source.”

The tattoo was done roughly in eight hours.

“T” Massari and Alexandria Massari
(“T” Massari and Alexandria Massari)

For this Halloween I was searching for some scary tattoos and you won’t believe – at Electric Soul Tattooing, Lancaster, California, I found many such tattoos. The studio is owned by a couple – “T” Massari and Alexandria Massari.

The couple has owned this studio since 2003 and is pretty successful in this profession and passion of body art. “T” Massari is a multifaceted tattooist and you can etch anything from animals to nature, old school to new school and from traditional, portraits to religious. His wife Alexandria Massari is a tattooist as well as a piercer and if you looking for floral tattoo then friends I would suggest her name because she is very good at it. But, we cannot limit her artistry to only this style as like her husband even she is a versatile and has a fine hand for inking oriental, fantasy, native cultural, nature, old school – traditional, religious, sports, etc. Except for inking she is very good at poking and can poke hole in any part of your body.

Alongwith, the couple there are other tattooists in the studio, a fresh but not unpolished artist – Evan Campbell and over five years’ experienced tattoo artist – Jesse Estrada. Jesse’s work has a flavor of Japanese style with versatility.

They are certified in Blood-Borne and Air-Borne pathogen education. And, they say that they are different because they are very serious about their art and having fun. That means you can get a body art with something funny going on in the studio. 🙂

Since, my childhood I’ve always heard some old people say that both, husband and wife should not be in same profession because this lead to lot of frictions in the relation. I could not reach on any conclusion about it but, personally feel that when a couple is in same profession they are more supportive and understanding. And, an example of a couple being in same profession is “T” and his wife Allie. I cannot say anything about their personal life but their tattoo art is unquestionably amazing.
