Works by the artists from the epic Skull & Sword tattoo shop located here in San Francisco are showing works at FFDG. Stop in and view the show this week. Hours: Wed thru Sat (1-6pm). Below is a taste.
Below are a series of videos on Grime for Vice's Tattoo Age produced in 2011. Fascinating look at one of the greatest tattoo artists alive today.
In the first installment of Grime's series we hear from tattoo luminaries, Civ and Chris O'Donnell, as they try to put in perspective how revered and unique Grime's style is. We meet the other tattooers at Grime's shop, Skull and Sword, and learn how they too, strive to be constantly evolving in their tattooing.
Grime gives a little back story on how he transitioned from a young skateboarder who thought his future was in mathematics in Grand Junction, Colorado, to one of the world's most accomplished tattooers.
In a more personal look at Grime, we hear about how he has self published two books based on his personal art and journal writings. We also learn of his need to constantly create in order be self satisfied.
