TATTOO ARTIST & TATTOO MODEL

WHAT TATTOO STYLE DO YOU PREFRE TO DO AS AN ARTST?

-I WORK MAINLY IN DOTWORK, ONLY IN BLACK. MY CLIENTS ARE MOSTLY WOMEN, SO I TRY TO MAKE MY TATTOOS COMBINE FEMININITY AND DELICACY WITH MY LOVE FOR THE DARK SIDE OF ART. I MAINLY MAKE LARGE, ELEGANT, JEWELRY DESIGNS RICH IN DETAILS, ORNAMENTS AND FLOWERS. OFTEN THERE ARE ANIMALS, BOTH LIVING AND DEAD, FOREST THEMES IN A WITCH-LIKE ATMOSPHERE, MAGICAL AND FANTASTIC ELEMENTS, SUCH AS CHIMERAS.


WHAT ARE YOUR BIGGEST DREAMS? -ONE OF MY BIGGEST DREAMS IS TO TRAVEL MUCH MORE THAN NOW, SEE THE WORLD AND TAKE PHOTOS IN NEW BEAUTIFUL PLACES. ANOTHER DREAM IS TO HAVE A LOVING FAMILY WITH WHOM I COULD SHARE EVERYTHING IN MY LIFE. PAGE

07

WHAT ARE YOUR OTHER HOBBIES EXCEPT MODELING AND WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO IN YOUR FREE TIME?

-MODELING IS MY MAIN HOBBY AND THIS IS WHAT TAKES THE MOST OF MY FREE TIME. MY WORK IS TATTOOING, MODELING ALLOWS ME TO REST FROM THIS AND RELAX.


08

PAGE

WHAT WOULD YOU CALL YOUR GREATEST SUCCESS? -I AM IN A SITUATION WHERE I AM APPRECIATED FOR WHO I AM AND WHAT I DO. I DON’T HAVE TO PRETEND ANYTHING. THIS IS MY BIGGEST CAREER SUCCESS SO FAR AND I WANT TO KEEP ON MY TRACK. I FEEL GREAT WHEN PEOPLE LIKE YOU AND OTHERS MESSAGE ME WITH VARIOUS PROPOSALS AND I CAN AGREE WITHOUT ANY COMPROMISE. I CAN HAVE MY OWN PERSONALITY


WHAT INSPRE YOU, IF WE TALK TATTOOING AND ART? -MY MAIN SOURCES OF INSPIRATION ARE NATURE FANTASY AND ART OF THE VICTORIAN ERA. I ALSO DRAW A LOT FROM ARCHITECTURE, ELEMENTS OF THE GOTHIC SUBCULTURE, MYTHOLOGY AND BELIEFS.

IS THERE ANY PHOTOGRAPHER AND MODEL YOU’D LIKE TO WORK WITH VERY MUCH? -OVER THE PAST YEARS I HAVE MEET MANY NEW PHOTOGRAPHERS AND MODELS WITH WHOM I WORKED. HOWEVER, CURRENTLY I WORK ONLY WITH THE MOST

COOPERATIONS.

I DON’T FEEL A PARTICULAR NEED FOR NEW

IGOR PUENTE


HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN TATTOOING AND HOW DID YOU START YOUR TATTOOING JOURNEY?

- I’VE ALWAYS BEEN REALLY BAD WITH DATES BUT I WOULD SAY I STARTED AROUND THE SUMMER OF 2012, BUT TATTOOING PROFESSIONALLY IN SEPTEMBER OF 2014. I COULDN’T FIND AN APPRENTICESHIP SO I DECIDED TO GO TO ART SCHOOL. WHILE I WAS IN SCHOOL I STARTED TO PRACTICE ON SOME OF MY FRIENDS AND AFTER SOME SEMINARS WITH SOME OF MY FAVORITE TATTOOERS, I USED WHAT I LEARNED IN ART SCHOOL TO CREATE A PORTFOLIO.

ANY ARTIST YOU PLANNING TO GET TATTOOED BY? WHO HAS TATTOOED YOU ALREADY?

I’M RUNNING OUT OF SPACE IF I HAVE TO BE HONEST BUT I HAVE ANOTHER SESSION OF MY BACK PIECE COMING UP. I’M GETTING A COLLABORATION BETWEEN MIKE MOSES AND EMMANUEL MENDOZA.


IGOR PUENTE


DO YOU HAVE ANY MEMORABLE TATTOO STORY OR A CUSTOMER THAT HAS STUCK WITH YOU THROUGH ALL THE TIME YOU HAVE BEEN TATTOOING?

- I WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO FORGET THE TIGER I DID AT THE FIRST COGNAC TATTOO CONVENTION. I WENT WITH MY TATTOO ADDICTS WHICH IS A SHOP WITH PEOPLE I CONSIDER FAMILY IN BILBAO. THAT BY ITSELF IS ALSO A REALLY FUN MEMORY. BUT THE SPECIAL PART OF THIS TATTOO WAS THAT IT WAS DONE ON THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE DEATH OF MY GRANDFATHER WHO WAS LIKE A SECOND FATHER TO ME. I HAVE A TATTOO ON ONE OF MY HANDS, A TIGER, WHICH REPRESENTS HIM AND HIS LAST MOMENTS. SO THE TIGER TATTOO I DID, PLUS THE DATE, FELT LIKE HE WAS PRESENT ALL THAT DAY. WE WENT TO THE TATTOO CONTEST AND I THOUGHT I WASN’T WINNING ANYTHING SO I WAS READY TO COVER MY TATTOO AND LEAVE FOR THE DAY. WHEN I HEARD WHEN, AND BY WHOIDID YOU GET YOUR FIRST TATTOO? MY NAME IN WHERE THE SPEAKERS COULDN’T BELIEVE IT. I WON BEST OF THE DAY, BEST OF COLOR, AND BEST OF THE CONVENTION WITH THAT TATTOO AND I KNOW THAT WITHOUT MY -GRANDFATHER WATCHING OVER ME THAT DAY I WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH THAT.

PLEASE, TELL US ABOUT YOUR CURRENT TATTOO STYLE AND HOW IT HAS CHANGED OVER THE YEARS. - IT CURRENTLY HAS A MIX OF REALISM, GRAPHIC, LINE WORK, VIBRANT COLOURS AND A TOUCH OF ABSTRACT. I JUST PUT IN WHATEVER I ENJOY OR INSPIRES ME THE MOST AT THE TIME

I GUESS IT’S EVOLVED FROM MANY INFLUENCES I’VE SURROUNDED MYSELF WITH OVER THE YEARS, ARTISTS I FOLLOW ON SOCIAL MEDIA, ARTISTS I TRAVEL TO GET WORK FROM, ARTISTS I COLLABORATE WITH, GENERALLY EVERY DAY LIFE, TRAVEL AND PEOPLE I MEET.

DO YOU REMEMBER WHAT WAS THE FIRST TATTOO YOU DID? IF SO, TELL US WHAT IT WAS AND FOR WHO.

PAGE

35

- THE FIRST TATTOO I DID WAS AT MY FRIENDS HOUSE ON HIM, I WAS PETRIFIED, I MADE A VERY WONKY STAR ON HIS LEG.


36

PAGE

WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS AND DREAMS? IF YOU THINK ABOUT YOURSELF IN 10 YEARS, WHAT DO YOU SEE?

- I’LL BE LIVING IN IBIZA THEN, MAYBE A LITTLE DARK HORSE STUDIO IN THE MOUNTAINS, CREATING OIL PAINTINGS, MUSIC, AND THE ODD TATTOO.

DOES ANYONE OR ANYTHING INSPIRE YOU?

- DEFINITELY, I GET INSPIRED VERY EASILY. AS SOON AS I STARTED MY APPRENTICESHIP, MY PRIORITY WAS TO GET TATTOOED BY MY FAVORITE ARTISTS AND TO LEARN FROM THEM. WATCHING THEM TATTOO, THEIR DESIGN PROCESS, ASKING QUESTIONS, TAKING THEIR ADVISE. FROM THAT EXPERIENCE AND BEING AROUND THAT CALIBRE OF ARTIST ALONG WITH ALL THE STUDIOS I VISITED, REALLY OPENED MY MIND WHAT I COULD ACHIEVE WITH A LOT OF HARD WORK.

BOKASSA NORWEGIAN ROCK TRIO BOKASSA HAS SINCE THEIR FORMATION IN 2013, FUSED RIFFS AND GROOVE FROM STONER METAL WITH CATCHY PUNK ROCK INTO THEIR SELF PROCLAIMED GRITTY STONER PUNK. BOKASSA HAS PLAYED SOME OF NORWAYS BIGGEST FESTIVALS, AND TOURED ALL OVER EUROPE. IN 2019 THEY WERE HANDPICKED BY LARS ULRICH TO SUPPORT METALLICA ALONGSIDE GHOST ON THEIR SUMMER STADIUM TOUR ALL OVER EUROPE, UK AND RUSSIA. THE LEGENDARY DRUMMER HAILED THEM AS ”HIS FAVOURITE NEW BAND” AND DESCRIBED THEM AS ”INSANELY FUCKING COOL” AFTER HEARING THE TRIOS FIRST ALBUM DIVIDE & CONQUER.

PAGE

42

THEIR COOL DEBUT ALBUM WAS ALSO HAILED BY CRITICS ALL OVER THE WORLD AND MADE IT ON TO SEVERAL OF 2017S «BEST OF» LISTS, AND METAL HAMMER UK CALLED THE ALBUM ONE OF THE BEST DEBUTS OF 2017. THE ALBUM, CRIMSON RIDERS, WAS RELEASED IN 2019 TO CRITICALLY ACCLAIM FROM RESPECTED MAGAZINES SUCH AS KERRANG, METAL HAMMER AND DISTORTED SOUND, TO NAME A FEW.


PAGE

43

IN THE WORDS OF KERRANG´S SAM LAW: ”IT’S NOT SOUTHERN-FRIED LICKS OR BLACK-EYED BREAKDOWNS THAT SET THIS LOT APART. IT’S A ZERO-BULLSHIT MINDSET THAT SEES EVERYTHING INAUTHENTIC, NON-ESSENTIAL AND NOT NAILED DOWN CAST TO THE WIND. TRUE GRIT, SEE, IS TOUGH TO FAKE». IN 2020 THE BAND SIGNED A WORLDWIDE DEAL WITH RENOWNED ROCK & METAL LABEL NAPALM RECORDS FOR A FUTURE THIRD ALBUM. THE TRIOS THIRD FULL LENGTH “MOLOTOV ROCKTAIL”, WHICH HAS JUST ARRIVED, HERE ON SEPTEMBER 3RD 2021! AND IT’S A KILLER ALBUM, WITH COOL RIFFS AND SOME AWESOME HARD ROCKING METAL, FOR EVERYONE WHO IS A SUCKER FOR SOME STRAIGHT FORWARD HARD/PUNK ROCK.. TEXT FROM: BAMZE

DANKO JONES ARE A CANADIAN HARD ROCK TRIO WHOSE BLUESY, PUNK-BLASTED STYLE IS ROOTED IN THE TRADITION OF THIN LIZZY AND AC/DC. KNOWN FOR THEIR HIGH-ENERGY LIVE PERFORMANCES AND HUMOROUS LYRICS, THE BAND EMERGED IN THE LATE 1990S AND QUICKLY MADE A NAME FOR THEMSELVES. HIGHLY REGARDED IN THEIR CANADIAN HOMELAND, DANKO JONES HAVE ALSO ENJOYED ENORMOUS POPULARITY IN EUROPE, VIA CHART-TOPPING ALBUMS LIKE BELOW THE BELT, FIRE MUSIC, AND A ROCK SUPREME. THE BAND CONSISTS OF DANKO JONES (VOCALS/GUITAR), JOHN CALABRESE (BASS GUITAR), AND DAN CORNELIUS (DRUMS), THE BAND WAS FOUNDED IN TORONTO, ONTARIO, IN 1996 AND MADE ITS RECORDING DEBUT IN 1998 WITH A FIVETRACK SELF-TITLED EP, AND A FOLLOW-UP EP, MY LOVE IS BOLD, WHO GAINED AIRPLAY ON CANADIAN HARD


PAGE

THE STAGE FOR I’M ALIVE AND ON FIRE, A 13-TRACK COMPILATION OF THE BAND’S FIRST RECORDINGS. BORN A LION, WAS ITS FIRST MAJOR-LABEL RELEASE DISTRIBUTED WORLDWIDE AND AFTER THAT, WE SWEAT BLOOD, FOLLOWED SHORTLY AFTER. DANKO JONES’ NEXT ALBUM, SLEEP IS THE ENEMY, WAS WHERE I FIRST HEARD ABOUT THESE GUYS, AND WAS HOOKED ON THE ENERGY. THE ALBUM NEVER TOO LOUD, FOLLOWED SHORTLY AFTER AND WAS DANKO JONES’ MOST COMMERCIALLY SUCCESSFUL ALBUM TO DATE IN EUROPE, PARTICULARLY IN GERMANY, WHERE IT BECAME A TOP 40 HIT, FOLLOWED IN 2010 BY ITS FIFTH FULL-LENGTH, BELOW THE BELT. THE FOLLOWING YEAR, DANKO JONES ANNOUNCED THE DEPARTURE OF LONGTIME MEMBER DAN CORNELIUS, WHO WAS REPLACED BY ANGELS & AIRWAVES DRUMMER ATOM WILLARD. IN 2012, DANKO JONES RETURNED WITH THEIR SIXTH STUDIO ALBUM, ROCK AND ROLL IS BLACK. RICH KNOX BECAME DANKO JONES’ NEW DRUMMER IN TIME TO PLAY ON THE SESSIONS FOR THE ALBUM FIRE MUSIC, WHICH WAS RELEASED IN FEBRUARY 2015. WILD CAT, FOLLOWED IN MARCH 2017. THE BAND ENLISTED RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE AND RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS PRODUCER GARTH RICHARDSON TO PRODUCE ALBUM NUMBER NINE, 2019’S HARD HITTING, A ROCK SUPREME, BEFORE RETURNING IN 2021 WITH THE APTLY TITLED POWER TRIO, WHICH ONCE AGAIN, IS A BURST OF ENERGY AND ROCK’N’ROLL.. DEFINITELY WORTH A CHECK.. TEXT : BAMZE

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN TATTOOING AND HOW DID YOU START YOUR TATTOOING JOURNEY? - I’VE BEEN TATTOOING FOR NEARLY 5 YEARS NOW, TO BE HONEST, I NEVER REALLY WANTED TO BE A TATTOO ARTIST! IT SORT OF HAPPENED BY ACCIDENT, I STARTED WORKING IN A STUDIO AS A DESK MANAGER, AND EACH DAY I FELL MORE IN LOVE WITH THE THOUGHT OF BECOMING A TATTOOER! SO I JUST WENT FOR IT. I NEVER KNEW HOW INCREDIBLE IT WOULD TURN OUT TO BE. WHEN, WHERE AND BY WHO DID YOU GET YOUR FIRST TATTOO?

PAGE

47


DO YOU REMEMBER WHAT WAS THE FIRST TATTOO YOU DID? IF SO, TELL US WHAT IT WAS AND FOR WHO?

- YES, I DO! IT WAS SOME SCRIPT FOR MY MOM, SHE WOULDN’T TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER TO BE MY FIRST CLIENT. IT REALLY MADE ME FEEL RELAXED, IT WAS GOING TO BE HER, I DIDN’T HAVE TO WORRY TOO MUCH IF I MESSED IT UP! AND I DID, I BLEW OUT SOME LINES AND HAD TO FIX IT AFTER IT HEALED, BUT IT TAUGHT ME VERY QUICKLY THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FAKE SKIN AND THE REAL MCCOY!

DOES ANYONE OR ANYTHING INSPIRE YOU?

PAGE

48

- LIKE I SAID BEFORE, ANIME AND GAMING HAVE ALWAYS INSPIRED ME TO DRAW AND LEARN HOW TO IMPROVE CERTAIN TECHNIQUES. DRAGONBALL Z MADE ME FALL IN LOVE WITH DRAWING – MY DAD WOULD ALWAYS DRAW THEM FOR ME AS A CHILD AND I COULDN’T GET OVER SEEING HIM DRAW, IT WAS LIKE MAGIC! I TRY TO STUDY A LOT OF GRAPHIC ARTWORK AND SEE HOW ARTISTS GIVE CHARACTERS PERSONALITY AND DEPTH, HOW THEY SHOW MOVEMENT AND PLAY WITH LIGHT SOURCES. IT’S ALL STILL MIND BOGGLING TO ME BUT EACH DAY I TRY TO LEARN SOMETHING NEW.


PAGE

49 WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS AND DREAMS? IF YOU THINK ABOUT YOURSELF IN 10 YEARS, WHAT DO YOU SEE? - I’M A SIMPLE CHAP – ALL I WANT IS TO LEARN AND KEEP GROWING IN THE INDUSTRY. I’M FOREVER GRATEFUL TO DO WHAT I DO. TO GET THE CHANCE TO TRAVEL AND WORK AT THE SAME TIME. I’M TOO CAUGHT UP IN THE NOW AND CAN’T REALLY WORRY ABOUT 10 YEARS DOWN THE LINE. I’D LOVE TO SEE THE INDUSTRY MORE DIVERSE AND LESS HORRIBLE PRICKS SEXUALLY ABUSING THEIR CUSTOMERS AND APPRENTICES. ONCE WE WORK TOWARDS AN INDUSTRY LIKE THAT I’LL BE HAPPY OUT.
