Dana Helmuth.jpgDana Helmuth makes beautiful Japanese tattooing that follows the long standing traditions of the art form -- more conservatively than the modern genre mash-ups -- but still with its own distinctiveness. They are just as striking from a distance as they are up-close, and they are built to look good to the grave. 

How Dana has come to achieve these qualities in his work is no secret:  homework, hard work, and a love for tattooing. You'll hear many great artists say the same thing. But for a more in-depth understanding into his approach -- and to get an up-close look at how he works -- check out the live tattoo webcast on TattooNow TV, next Sunday, November 4th. Dana will be doing an interview as well; for a preview on that talk, you can read this Q&A with the artist TattooNow.com.

To get a taste of his music and tattooing, here's a video below (put to Dan's own music) in which he does a custom black and grey dragon backpiece in one day.

Dan will be tattooing at Off the Map Tattoo in Easthampton, Mass. from November 3-9 and still has some space available. Contact Off The Map for more info.

Last week, I mentioned that I'll be at the Paradise Tattoo Gathering -- one of my favorite tattoo events, not just for the stellar artist line-up, seminars and workshops, but because it's one of the few left where you actually feel there is a real tattoo "community." And it's a serious fun.

Because of The Gathering, many international artists will be stateside and doing guest spots at shops across the US. Our friends at Off The Map Tattoo in Grants Pass, Oregon and Easthampton, MA will be hosting many of these artists next month. Check out this insane line-up:

At the Oregon studio, renowned resident tattoo artist Jeff Gogue will host David Corden (9/4/12 - 9/8/12), Remis Tattoo (9/18/12 - 9/22/12), and John Anderton (9/18/12 - 9/22/12).

On the East Coast, the Massachusetts Off the Map crew welcomes Thomas-kYnst (9/1/12 - 9/3/12), Aurora Lancaster (9/5/12 - 9/11/12), and Fabian Danger De Gaillande (9/18/12 - 9/23/12).


I'm posting a tattoo by each of these artists here and highly recommend you check out all their work. Contact Off The Map for more info.

oleg turyanksi tattoo.jpgWhen Moscow tattoo artist Oleg Turyanskiy comes to the States as a visiting artist, collectors rush to schedule sessions for his color and black & grey realism work -- tattoos that not only capture a likeness but the energy of the subject.

The thirty-three-year-old describes himself as a "traveling tattoo artist" as he spends most his time on the road, although he does keep a home base in his native Moscow. Oleg says that he needs to travel to charge his creativity. In addition to guest spots at top shops around the world, you can find Oleg at a number of international tattoo conventions throughout the year. He says:

I adore attending tattoo conventions. I really love the atmosphere and spirit of such kind of events. I don't like working at the same place with the same people around for months in a row. I need to change my surroundings from time to time.

oleg turyanski tattoo2.jpgAn art school graduate, Oleg has been tattooing since 2001, preferring realism, although he says his fine art work is largely fantasy driven. His trippy illustrations are like the Brothers Grimm on acid but he's quick to say that his work is not a product of drugs or alcohol--a question he gets a lot when people view his art. He's currently working on fairy tales himself in the form of a sketchbook, which will be available for purchase. [We'll update you on its release.]

Oleg's travel schedule is updated online here. His next US guest spot will be at Off The Map Tattoo in Easthampton, MA in August and September. During those months, he'll also be attending the Hell City Tattoo Fest and the Paradise Tattoo Gathering. Appointments with Oleg are made in advance. You can reach him via his contact page.
