Horisuzu&Horisora ep#9



 

 

For Episode 9 we had the honor of closing out our weekend in Albuquerque with a visit with traditional tebori artists, Horisuzu and Horisora. We had a blast and time just flew by. We got some great backstory and Horisuzu
and Horisora go on to explain how their paths crossed. They offer an insightful glimpse into what it means to be part of a Japanese tattoo family. If you are at all interested in Japanese Tattoo culture or imagery this one is a must listen! EnjoyHo


Bale Sisneros ep#8



In episode 8 Mike and Tony catch up with Bale Sisneros on Sunday morning of the New Mexico Tattoo Fiesta. Bale and his partner, Brian Everett, set the bar very high with the production of the show. It was so busy that we had a hard time pulling tattooers away from the floor to record with us as there were plenty of tattoo clients to go around. Bale is a true Burque OG. He goes on to explain how Por Vida Tattoo came about and what he’s been up to as of late. Check it out!

Fade discusses the American premier of her self produced documentary, Point of no Return. She also talks about her introducing to the Iban tribe of Borneo and learning their traditional hand poke tattoo method. It was great to spend time with Fade and we are already looking forward to the next time we are able to hang!


Durb Morrison ep#6



In episode 6 Mike and Tony meet up with Durb Morrison at Northern AZ Tattoo Fest. Durb talks a bit about his timeline as a tattooer dating all the way back to his first few tattoos. Durb gives us a glimpse into what inspired him to bring Hell City to life, and what it takes to continue to set the standard in tattoo convention production. We also discuss some of his innovations with his True Tubes line and what the future holds as he looks to expand distribution for True Tattoo Supply. Durb is a class act, and his story telling definitely doesn’t disappoint. Be sure to check out Hell City, Phoenix this August 24th-26th.
