David Allen's Tattoo Design with Apple Devices
I've been a long-time fan of David Allen of Pioneer Tattoo in Chicago. I began following his blog about 8 years ago when he started his tattoo apprenticeship after leaving his graphic design career. His site not only charted his progress from novice to the sought-after tattooer he is today, but also showed the tools and methods he used in his learning process. Expert use of technology has played a big part of that progression.
David will be sharing his tattoo process using Apple devices -- from iPhone, to iPad to Macbook Air -- on Wednesday, Jan. 8th, 6pm at the Lincoln Park Apple Store in Chicago. David will also be going over scheduling and sharing that information between tattooer, assistant and client. He describes the hour seminar as super geeky (which I love). Should be a great learning event for experienced and new tattooers a like, as well as collectors.

We also profiled David in 2012 and featured his beautiful mastectomy scar tattoo in 2010.
