Itching for Ink25.02.2014
Funny how tattoo culture seems to go hand in hand with preppy hair-cuts… Tyler B Murphy, owner of Sins of Style in Cape Town, talks the ink biz, while he gets a neat trim in this vid from the Jameson Indie Project.
“My parameter is that if I wouldn’t do it on a family member, why would I do it on someone else?” Says Tyler, like a responsible citizen.
Ironically, Sins of Style specialise in a unique manual ‘hand poked’ technique that deliberately leaves the line work looking raw as hell. Ninja and Yo-Landi being the most famous recipients of the dirty style.
“Hard working people love tattoos,” he quotes legend tattooist George ‘Professor’ Burchett . Nowadays, pretty much everybody loves tattoos… so bite the bullet and get your tramp stamp today, yo!
