Tattoo Age Bonus Video & Contest Winners
The folks at Vice TV are offering one last piece of Tattoo Age goodness with this bonus video from their Freddy Corbin profile. [See Part I, Part II, and Part III.]
In this wonderful footage, you'll find Freddy's return to Varanasi, India in January 2010 where he tattooed local people there for free in a small temple on the Ganges River. He explains that he returned for "good juju" with the birth of his son. I particularly love the photos of smiling faces from those who received one of the seven religious symbols Freddy drew up. While the whole video is touching, the story of Freddy tattooing a deaf boy who couldn't speak is especially moving. Once again, I highly recommend it.
Another treat from Vice is their Dan Santoro print giveaway, which we posted last week, asking y'all to comment on the Needles & Sins Syndicate FB page or by Tweeting at us to win. Randomized.com picked four winners, and a screen cap of that pick can be found on Facebook.
I'm really hoping the series gets picked up for a second season. I'll be following @Tattoo_Age on Twitter for updates.
