COURTESY AZHA SANDERS
JACKSONIAN AZHA SANDERS
t wasn’t some intrinsic skill that turned tattoo artist Azha Sanders into the artistic inker she is today. While she’s a talented artist in her own right, translating art into tattoos is as much discipline as it is ability. “It’s a lot of patience with yourself and how much you’re able to be taught,” Sanders says of tattooing. “It’s definitely nothing to be rushed into, but it’s something you have to do to make it happen.” Though she’s lived in the Fondren area for a number of years, Sanders, 26, is originally from Kosciusko. She attended the Education Center School in Jackson before transferring to Ridgeland High School. Even then, she was fascinated in tattoos as an art form, though admittedly, her interest exceeded her knowledge. “I actually didn’t know much about tattoos until I started working at a shop,” Sanders says. “I just knew it was what I wanted to do. I had that absolute feeling— ‘This is it.’” Luckily, she spent plenty of time educating herself before taking a needle to anyone. In 2009, Sanders began her nine-month apprenticeship at Twiztid Images (557 Highway 49, Richland, 601664-0000) under veteran artist Lorin King. “It was hard, which it’s supposed to be,” she says of her training. “It’s very difficult because you don’t get paid to be an appren-
tice. It’s a lot of work and taking initiative. You have to take charge and prove why you should be there.” Sanders apparently proved herself. Next January marks her sixth year as a licensed tattoo artist for Twiztid Images. Although the route from thinking to inking becomes smoother with experience, taking something from an idea to a workable blueprint is still tricky. “The hardest part of the process is trying to get what’s in someone’s head onto paper or even in words,” she says, and what a customer wants doesn’t necessarily equate to the perfect piece. “Sometimes people have something in their heads that won’t necessarily make a good tattoo. I try to work with them, and as long as they’re willing to compromise, it usually turns out great.” Sanders has an undeniably classic style to her work, but she says she would rather not ascribe to a single approach when creating pieces for customers. “I try to make tattoos that are bold and that will last through the test of time,” she says. “I’m thinking about a person’s future and how it will look 10 or 20 years from now.” Both in the design and application processes, Sanders’ main focuses are quality and longevity. To her, a truly great tattoo is about the long term, and in the tattoo business, it is very long-term. —Micah Smith

by Micah Smith, Music Editor
It’s OK to Be Critical
ackson Free Press isn’t the first paper that I’ve been the music editor for, though you probably haven’t heard of the first, even if you attended Mississippi College. While The Collegian’s readership consisted mostly of our own staff and faculty members who checked to make sure we didn’t say anything too mean about the school, I’m proud of the pieces I wrote in that basement office, stuffed between the ROTC and much cooler yearbook offices. They had a throw rug and wall art, while we had 10 computer monitors from an indeterminate time period and two office chairs with the backs broken off. During my three years at The Collegian, I developed a system: I would mostly cover and review music that interested me. That way, I wouldn’t get burned out on writing. I didn’t intend for it to be self-serving, but it made more practical sense, in my mind. Why write about artists I don’t like since I’m the only one reading it? I’m exaggerating, of course. We covered plenty of entertainment events in the Clinton area that weren’t for my benefit alone, including local acts such as Captain and Company and collegesponsored seminars from world-class singers. I also did a long-form interview with the band There for Tomorrow, a secular pop-rock group that, for some reason, performed at the Christian private college, playing their hearts out to an overwhelmingly silent audience. The article was one of the best pieces I wrote for The Collegian and one of my first experiences with interviewing an internationally known artist. I also had a few uncomfortable experiences at The Collegian, though, the worst of which happened during my junior year in November 2011, when I learned that my opinions mattered a lot
more in writing than they did in person. We were nearing the end of the month, and as our newspaper was bi-weekly, our staff was already planning ahead to Christmas coverage. Between the annual parade, the Festival of Lights, the Holiday Market and the Lighting of the Quad, the Christmas season was a massive industry in Clinton. Thus, it became one of the few times people remembered The Collegian existed, if only for the list of upcoming events.
“If you meant what you said, why should you apologize?” That week, I was stumped on music ideas. Our paper mostly focused on events within Clinton, so I couldn’t reach out to Jackson’s burgeoning music scene for help. At the same time, I had no intention of writing another obligatory piece about the college’s offerings, since the events were almost identical every year. Unless Santa Claus crash-landed directly onto the Quad, I just didn’t have anything new to say. Dr. Tim Nicholas, the school’s head journalism professor and The Collegian’s staff supervisor, suggested that I look into reviewing a local Christmas album instead, and he had just the one in mind. One senior girl, a vocal major and prominent member of MC’s choir, released a CD of “classic holiday covers,”
as she stated it, and she had given a copy to Nicholas. I always liked the thought of reviewing local music, something I also do for Jackson Free Press because it gives exposure and might result in usable quotes for the artist. “Even if The Collegian’s readership is only marginally larger than our staff, coverage of any kind might help in spreading the word,” I thought. I obtained permission from the young woman and then got to work. Unfortunately, the record wasn’t exactly what it was billed as. Even the back of the CD case, which was well produced and looked rather expensive, stated the album was a revival of the most beloved holiday songs in history from an up-andcoming young star. In actuality, there was little “revival” and a startling lack of youth. Not one of the 12 tracks that appeared sounded familiar to me, which is saying something, since I grew up in Southern Baptist churches. While the girl happily shelled money into creating quality recordings and top-of-the-line packaging, the songs were all unfamiliar hymns, chosen because they were in the public domain and free to use. Now, I’m actually a nice person. I know that doesn’t sound true if you have to say it, but I am. I didn’t want to hurt this girl’s feelings, so I rewrote the piece a number of times over the course of two weeks, trying to find a perfect balance of truth and kindness. While I wasn’t proud of the end result—a stripped-bare, sterilized review that read more like a press release—I felt safe printing it, assuming she would be happy that I spent hours and paper-space to cover it, complimented her operatic voice and wrote only a few minor criticisms. I was wrong, though. A few staff members and I hand-delivered stacks
of new issues around the campus at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, and by 3 p.m. the next day, I had received a startling number of “you’re dead to me” glares from music professors, choir members and the singer’s many friends. If I had to choose a mini-moral to the story, it would be, “Don’t write anything even faintly insulting about someone with more supporters than you.” But of course, that’s not possible in journalism of any kind. Nicholas asked to speak to me in private after our class ended on Wednesday because he’d been receiving emails about the review. I already felt sick to my stomach all day, and being reprimanded would only add a bit of emotion to the physical ailment. But at least I could wrap up all of the bad feelings in a single afternoon. Nicholas smiled as he told me how many people had been upset about the review. The singer had contacted him about writing a response letter, which printed in the next issue because journalists are masochists by nature. I apologized to him for creating the ordeal in the first place. “Why?” he asked. “If you meant what you said, then why would you apologize?” The conversation was brief, but it stuck with me. I’ve written many reviews for the Jackson Free Press, first as a freelancer and now as music editor. I’ve had people ask me what makes my opinion better than someone else’s. Why should mine be printed when his or hers is not? The simple answer: Music is an art form, so it’s entirely subjective. But it’s also objective. The goal is to reach wider audiences, to evolve and become better over time. I don’t write reviews to be negative. I write them to encourage the strengths and acknowledge the weaknesses. I promise that I’ll never do one without the other. And I’ll never forget that people have opinions beyond my own.

On the Conditions at East Mississippi Correctional Facility
October 15 - 21, 2014 â€˘ jfp.ms
e the members of Mississippi Religious Leadership Conference wish to express our concern about recent reports regarding East Mississippi Correctional Facility just outside of Meridian. We have noted that a lawsuit has been filed by the Southern Poverty Law Center against the State because of shortcomings in the operation and management of EMCF by the Utah-based private company that operates the facility. Recently, SPLC filed a motion to have the suit certified as a class action one. MRLC affirms the fundamental principles of the U.S. criminal-justice system and recognizes the need for well-run prisons as places to incarcerate those convicted of crimes; however, the duty of those who operate prisons is not only to incarcerate the guilty, but also to prepare those incarcerated for eventual re-entry into society. While we could address many shortcomings of the current criminal-justice system, in light of the recent reports, we will limit our concerns to what seem to us to be critical failures of those operating EMCF: Failure to provide sufficient care to the physical and mental health needs of the incarcerated; failure to maintain adequate medical records; failure to maintain sanitary conditions; excessive use of solitary confinement without proper supervision; inhumane treatment of some of the incarcerated; and failure to properly maintain the facility, leading to dangerous conditions, not only for prisoners, but for guards and the public at large. Some argue in favor of â€œfor-profitâ€? prisons because of their supposed cost-effectiveness, their ability to reduce overcrowding in public prisons and the introduction of freemarket competition to lower incarceration

costs overall. As religious leaders, however, we are concerned about the moralâ€”not to mention, the economicâ€”problems that arise when the state contracts with privately-managed prisons. In the criminal-justice system, the state takes upon itself custodial control over the day-to-day lives of the incarcerated. When the State deputizes private corporations (guided primarily by the goal of earning a profit), a system then exists that invites opportunities for abuse. Private companies operating prisons do not have the same incentive as the state to rehabilitate offenders and prepare them for successful re-entry into society. Indeed, a private company depends on a regular flow of offenders into (or back into) its prisons, and thus has little incentive to rehabilitate the incarcerated. Cost-saving measures in private prisons contribute to reduced services such as medical care (clearly evident at EMCF), education, job training and counseling. This, in, turn leads to higher recidivism rates for those released from private prisons compared to public ones, suggesting that the supposed cost-saving benefits of private prisons are minimal, if not non-existent. For these reasons, we the undersigned membership of MRLC, call on government officials to end the contract with the private company operating EMCF and to reclaim its responsibility for management of EMCF.
