“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.

Scarification piercingsntattoos

These days, more and more individuals are deciding to do something different by leaving a permanent mark – on their own skin. Scarification is one of the best examples of permanent art but different from tattoos.

Scarification is of numerous types and I’m here to talk about “Body Carving” or “Skin Peeling” or “Skinning” – all different names of the art of Skin Removal. As depicted from the name it a process of skin removal giving yourself an euphoria of pain.

A step-by-step procedure is followed to remove the skin:

1. Area of the skin where the skinning is to be performed is properly cleaned.
2. The design is stenciled on the skin.
3. The design is outlined like a single cutting scarification until reaching the right depth and width.
4. Then the artist begins removing skin slices with the help of a Kocher forceps or dissection clamp. The tissue to be removed is pulled back while “slicing” on the bottom to free the skin from beneath.

Here, in the picture you’ll see the procedure of Body Carving on this lady’s back, while the artist makes a bamboo design to contribute as her backpiece. There is a high risk in skinning and is recommended get it done by only an experienced practioner. Large amount of skin removal is not advisable. As the upper layer of the skin is being removed, therefore, it is very important to follow the aftercare guidelines and hygiene of that area.

If you want to be on the cutting edge — and want to set yourself apart — you can do scarification with more pain than tattoos.

Have you ever imagined how the body art will change in next coming decades? If not then take a look at this sensual video and see something which is beyond imagination! My mouth was wide open when I saw this up-to-the-minute Philips electronic body art project, Skin: Tattoo. Philips Design is again pushing the boundaries and confusing us with its latest contribution to the body art industry.

The SKIN; Tattoo project investigates the use of ‘electronic’ ink that would allow people to have dynamic tattoos with an infinite number of display options. In much the same way as make-up is put on and taken off to suit the occasion, a tattoo could alter whenever desired. The tattoos could even change in response to gestures or emotions, which opens up novel ways of communicating and interacting with others.

Still there are many questions hovering my mind like: how will this ‘electronic’ ink work, will it be safe on the skin, how durable is it, etc. etc.
