Guy Aitchison and Jeff Gogue Tattooing

Almost 6,000 people tuned in on Sunday to watch Guy Aitchison and Jeff Gogue collaborate. The chat room was booming with tattoo artists, collectors and enthusiasts from around the world. Chatters from Europe ended up staying up through the night and into the morning for the 11 hour collaboration.  Collector Matt sat like an absolute stone through the process. Guy and Jeff will be finishing it up at Hyperspace in the future.

It was great to see artists from around the world listen and watch as Guy and Jeff discussed techniques, equipment and general banter. The chat room was alive with participants sharing their instagrams and creating their own community. The 3 day event turned into quite an endurance marathon for both Jeff and Guy showing why they are at the top of their games.

Guy's webinar titled “Optimizing your use of value and color” involved Guy's famous bio organics and color work. Through out the tattoo Guy took questions from the chat and discussed developing ones style, career and techniques he's learned over his career.
