Latest Tattoo news and interviews with world class tattoo artists

Off The Map LIVE and Hypercast

We kicked off our newest season of Off The Map live last sunday and it was a successful show! We caught up with incredible tattoo artists from around the world who skyped in to hang out with a packed house at PopCorn Noir. Before the show we did a live viewing of the educational and inspiring film featuring Jeff Gogue called "Tattoo as I see it". Joining our host Ben Licata was black work specialist and long time tattooer Watson Atkinson. The two of them added a great new dynamic to the show ranging from technical discussion to alien gathering spots in Oregon. We skyped with the multi talented Marisa Kakoulas who shared her knowledge of law regarding tattooing and some of her projects. We got to catch up with realism specialist Stefano Alcantara who joined us from his studio in Lima, Peru. Underwater photography and tattooing specialist Deano Cook talked with us about his original underwater photography and custom tattoos. We also talked to fans of waffles, heavy metal, creators of great original art work and soon to be co-workers Tom Strom and Thomas Kynst. At the end Guy Aitchison joined us to introduce and stream his documentry Inner State. There was a real exciting buzz to the whole night as we also had a couple of viewing parties happening around the country.
