how we became - my tattoo inc

During the summer of 2019 our online magazine was created in heart and mind. Developed and shaped after many years of work, experiencing and living the tattoo environment. Strategies for the future was put to paper – an awesome tattoo magazine was born. The content of the magazine has since been in place, again developing from every new publishing. Performed by our dedicated collaboration partners, by the hands of travelling artists, our staff and our extensive network. Friends, some of them has been with us for three decades, make us 100% capable of supplying you with an online magazine of high quality with unique stories from the world of tattoo art.

In future issues we will present Tattoo Convention coverage with professional photos, loads of the finest artists and ink features from around the world. We will also aim to show our readers some of the fantastic tattoo models who has dedicated their life and bodies to the world of Body Art. Last, but not the least we want to highlight talented artists from around the world, of course mixed with world class names. From the past to the future, we bring you everywhere.

A Free Version

It was at an early stage that I decided to make the magazine completely free of charge, and the only way this could be a business was with advertising and partnerships. Through the decades I have experienced many great printed magazines, especially in the world of Body Art selling less and less and finally shutting down. Actually, I thought it was a waste of money for the advertisers, so i wanted to make a magazine where we can track the readers numbers and give the advertisers a fair chance to be seen.


My partners and I see a huge potential in this, the world´s first free online tattoo magazine. We are working, we are growing and we have found the right platform to all artists and you readers. One million have read our mag and numbers don’t lie!

We will publish four quarterly editions + two special and extended editions every year.

I wish you all a good read and look into the world of My Tattoo Inc. Enjoy!









BLACKWORK The tattoo style

Blackwork tattoos are becoming increasingly popular as people seek bold, striking designs to decorate their bodies. Unlike other styles that rely on bright colors and intricate details, blackwork tattoos use solid black lines to create stark, graphic images. This minimalist approach can produce some truly breathtaking tattoos that are both beautiful and edgy.

Blackwork tattoos can range from simple geometric patterns to more complex abstract designs. Many people choose blackwork tattoos because they’re versatile and can be customized to fit any style, whether that’s traditional or contemporary. For example, a simple blackwork design can have a tribal or Celtic feel, while a more elaborate blackwork piece might be inspired by nature or abstract art.

Blackwork tattoos are ideal for those who want to make a bold statement, as they stand out against the skin and are easily visible, even from a distance. The solid black lines of blackwork tattoos are also particularly striking when paired with paler skin tones, which helps to create a strong contrast that draws the eye.

The simplicity of blackwork tattoos also makes them a popular choice for larger pieces. For example, some people choose to cover their entire arms, legs, or backs with blackwork tattoos, which creates a stunning and powerful look.

When getting a blackwork tattoo, it’s important to choose an experienced artist who specializes in this style. Blackwork tattoos require precision and attention to detail, so it’s essential to choose an artist who has experience in creating clean, sharp lines and who understands the importance of good line work.

In conclusion, blackwork tattoos are a unique and beautiful form of body art that are growing in popularity. With their simple yet striking designs, they can be customized to fit any style, and are ideal for making a bold statement. Whether you’re looking for a small, subtle design or a large, elaborate piece, blackwork tattoos are a great choice that is sure to leave a lasting impression.

Get To Know justice


How did you got in to be a tattoo artist??

My journey into tattooing was a serendipitous one. While accompanying a friend to a tattoo shop, I was struck by the beauty of the designs I saw and wondered if I too could learn to tattoo. Despite having no prior artistic experience, I asked the artist if I could pick up the craft. To my surprise, he encouraged me to give it a try. He handed me an outline of a rose and asked me to shade it, and I was pleasantly shocked to have captured the essence of shading without any prior drawing experience. From that moment on, I was hooked. I dove into learning, practicing, and honing my craft, eventually branching out into painting. Tattooing has truly transformed my life and I couldn’t imagine pursuing any other path

If you weren’t a tattoo artist, what else would you do for a living?

I always wanted to be a doctor. But now I don’t regret it at all.

The best Tattoo Convention you have been too??

The Ink Factory Lion convention in France stands out as the best convention I’ve attended. I have also been invited to several top conventions in the US and am excited to visit some of the world’s top events once my visa is approved.

Favorite tattoo style, and the worst tattoo style for you?

My favorite style in tattooing is realism, both in color and black and grey. I have a strong affinity for black and grey realism, as I feel the most comfortable and confident in executing this style. However, I can’t help but be awed by the stunning color realism works of some artists. The level of detail and precision they put into their work is truly impressive.

I believe that all styles in tattooing have their own unique beauty and charm, and I respect the hard work and creativity that goes into each and every one of them. From abstract to traditional, each style has its own special qualities that make it stand out.

Despite this, I hold a great admiration for those who can create amazing works in these styles. They are true artists, and their works are a testament to their talent and dedication to the craft

Who is your idol in tattooing??

I don’t have specific idols in the tattoo industry, as I strive to create my own unique style. However, I deeply respect several artists, such as Yomico Moreno, Yarson, Sandra Daukshta, and Sergey Shanko, among others, for their exceptional work.

To keep with the theme another band combining reggae with metal, punk and many more musical styles. Skindred were formed in 1998 in Wales on the basis of the previous project Dub War. In 2002, Skindred released their debut album, “Babylon”. The very first time I heard this album I was blown away – heave guitars, aggressive drumming overlayed with ragga vocals made me wanna jump up and down all day long. Singles like “Nobody” and “Pressure” are what I go back to when I need some ‘pick me up’ tunes even after all those years. Skindred continued their energetic adventure on their next albums “”Roots, rock, riot” and “Shark bites and dog fights”. The band was touring extensively playing festivals and headlining shows around the world. Still they were making new music and in 2011 their fifth album “Union Black” was released followed up in 2013 by “Kill the power”.

After changing their record label they have release two more albums: “Volume” and “Big Tings”. Skindred played at Woodstock Festival in Poland where their show was attended by 1 million people! This was recorded in a documentary called “Rude boys for Life”, which was part of the deluxe edition of their “Volume” album (and now I think is available to watch on YouTube). But what can you expect from Skindred – a lot of energy, that’s what. They are a really great band to see live –you won’t be able to stand in one place for long. The fusion of punk, metal, ragga, electronic will make you move. Even though the reggae/ metal mix has been done before (Bad Brains), Skindred adds something extra and make themselves easily distinguishable. So if you are a metalhead but you also enjoy that Jah energy I’m sure you’ll enjoy what Benji and co. have to offer.

Mike Mikhell Daniel Pugsley – bass, programming / Arya Goggin – drums

This band has been on the scene for ages. They’ve been evolving throughout the year, dozens of musicians have been in the line-up, and it is still one of the best live bands I had a pleasure to see.

Ladies and gentleman, please, let me introduce (HED)p.e. They were formed in 1994 in Huntington Beach in California, USA, by Jared Gomes (aka M.C.U.D) and his guitarist friend Wes Geer. Initially the bends line-up consisted of a second guitarist (Chizad), Mawk on bass, B.C. Vaught on drums and a DJ/Turntablist DJ Product. In 1997 they released the self-titled album – musically combining punk and metal, projecting raw, aggressive edge.

Between 200 and 2004 the band released 2 albums – in my opinion their best so far“Broke” and “Blackout”. These two releases got the band some recognition and songs line “Bartender” and “Killing Time” are now considered one of the classics of the nu metal era. Jared and the boys followed the previous albums with “Only in Amerika” – a punk-heavy spit in a face of the corporate and conservative America. After changing the label, the band released their fifth studio album, “Back 2 Base X”. On this album, as the titles suggests, the band decided to go back to the roots of heave music with a raw sound, giving up on the modern production tricks.

Jared “M.C.U.D.” Gomes – lead vocals, melodica Kurt “Kid Bass” Blankenship – bass


And they did not slow down after that – they were basically releasing 1 album per year. So after “Back to Base X” we could get our hands on “Insomnia”, the live effort “D.I.Y. Guys”, “New World Orphans” (with the single ‘Renegade’, which I think has one of the best riffs ever) and “Truth Rising”. All of those album were continuing on a metal/punk theme with angry rapping and melodic singing. And in 2014 came the “Evolution” album. This album marked the departure of DJ Product and a change of bands musical direction – a lot of reggae elements were incorporated and this trend continued on their follow up album - “Forever!” - less angry lyrics, more mellowed out sound. And in 2019 we were treated to “Stampede!”

but for me the departure from the musical style of the band on this album was just too much, sorry. Autotune, weird rapping - not my cup of tea. But their next effort “Class of 2020” saw the return of some of the old band members and return to a heavy-punky style

(with reggae elements which are here to stay, I think). Their last album so far “Califas Worldwide” is a

cooperation between the band and dozens of musicians – a lot of rap-metal, punk, hip-hop and of course reggae.

Get To Know Alex Damgaard

What is your favorite tattoo brand?

Kwadron! They have been a loyal friend in the industry from day one. Always top class equipment.

What are you passionate about besides tattoo’s and art?

Time besides tattooing? Maybe in another life. The things i am passionate about besides tattoing, are things that make tattoing more availbe or accesable. So healths plays a big deal in this game! An example: Ive built a sauna and icebath in my garden only with the intention to boost my healt so i can tattoo more. Thats how i think and how i strive to acheive my goal of becoming the top artists in the world

How did you get to be a tattoo artist?

By being a shitty carpenter! Just kidding, but i was honestly properbly the worst apprentice availble. So you can guess how long that lasted before i got kicked out of that industry.

The best experience the tattoo world has given you?

The oppertunity to build a life around my work. Tattooing took so much of my time, so after some years i accepted that tattooing and the business around it basicly was my whole life, and not just a work

i started to slowly optain laser focus about what i wanted, and how to get it.

Favorite tattoo style, and the worst tattoo style for you?

Realism. Surprise! Ive always loved realism, and dont think i will ever grow tired of it. I dont really have a style i dont like. The history and evolution of each tattoo style is so interesting to me. So i kind of end up honering the grand masters, and the whole process that is needed to create new styles.

If you weren’t a tattoo artist, what would you be doing for a living?

I would be self employed in some other way. I see creativity as creation. Creating a business and a life around it, is at least as fun as the aspect of creating a tattoo. So i would without doubt had found another fun way, to make a living.
