SEXY INK

Kim, it’s great to sit down and talk with you, lady. Tip-Out: When did you start getting tattooed? What was your first piece, and who did it? Kim: I was 17 and got an awful semi-tribal piece on my lower back. I cannot remember for the life of me who did it or where, but that’s probably for the better given that I wasn’t of legal tattoo age. Hah! Tip-Out: At what point did you decide you were going to become heavily covered? Kim: After I did that piece, I had it fixed up a little when I was of age, then did a few other small tattoos here and there, but it wasn’t until I started working at a tattoo shop (Johnny Jackson’s Texas Body Art) as counter help, that I really started to get more work. Being around tattooed people all the time and seeing others get work done, really made me just want to express the art on myself as well. Tip-Out: That’s so awesome and you are an expressive person. I know you have a background in expression; you do have a background in dance, don’t you? When did u start dancing and what is your history with dance? Kim: I do. I danced from when I was 3 until I was 21. I did it in schools and companies when I was younger and then I danced on my high school’s team as well as took classes and courses on dance in college. I was planning to minor in dance or dance education. It’s a passion of mine, another way to express yourself through art and movement. Tip-Out: You are from Houston, right? Kim: Houston, born and raised. I lived there for 20 years and then packed up and moved myself to LA. Tip-Out: What took you to California? Kim: Boredom. Hahah. I was just tired of being in Houston, tired of going to college and tired of

living with my parents. So I moved across the country to start up a new life and now I have been here 5 years in January. I wouldn’t change a thing! Tip-Out: So, you absolutely love it?! Kim: I do, it’s such a different lifestyle and pace from Houston. Almost everyone is tattooed out here and the trends are better…not to mention, the weather. Just can’t beat it! Tip-Out: How does your family feel about you being heavily tattooed? Kim: Well, I am definitely the odd ball in my family, but hey, I like to be unique.They all think I am crazy for doing this to myself, but they’ve grown to love them. I mean, what choice to they have, right? Hahah. Tip-Out: You are beautiful with or without tattoos, when did you start modeling?

Kim: I started getting photos taken by a friend (Studio88 Photography) to build up her portfolio and start mine, about 2.5-3 years ago and from there, I have just worked with many magazines, sites, bands and photographers. I love it! Tip-Out: You are VERY good at it, a natural model. What do you do with your time when you’re not getting tattooed or modeling? Kim: I work as an executive assistant for myspace.com. When I am not working (which is most of the time), I’m doing some form of exercise or out at concerts with friends. Tip-Out: So, you work for myspace? DO you love it? Have your tattoos ever caused a problem with work? Kim: I do! I’ve been here 4.5 years and no one says anything about my tattoos. When I started, I used to cover them be-

cause I was unsure if people would take me seriously in my position, but everyone loves them now and they’ve been more of a talking point and given me “awesome points” versus being a bad thing in the office. I love it here, it’s a job with long hours and a lot of work, but being able to work in a professional environment and still get to be heavily tattooed (and show them off) is great! I couldn’t ask for a better job. Tip-Out: So,who did your beautiful artwork? Kim: My body consists of work from many artists. Johnny Jackson has done my fish on my ribs, the swallow on my right hip and the lotus on my right shoulder. Clint Leifeste did the zombie medusa on the inside of my right arm.

touched up my knuckles, done a cover up flower on my right wrist, he did my flying pig with the gold chain on my right arm, and also the tiara and brass knuckle tattoo on my right arm. Jeff Page did the skulls on either calf; mister Keep it Classy and misses Keep it Trashy. Ronnie Hadley has done my entire left arm and hand, the zombie monkey, ballet slippers, spider and web as well as being in the process of finishing the background work on my right arm.

So Tip-Out made a stop over at the House Of Blues and got to sit down and chat with Amy Jo our bartender of the month in between setting up her bar and entertaining thirsty customers. Tip-Out: You are such a great people person. When did you start bartending? Amy Jo: I’ve been bartending for 11 years or so. I don’t remember specific dates, but I started bartending right after I stopped going to college. Click’s Billiards on 290 gave me a shot at bartending, & I fell in love with the industry. (& shooting pool) Tip-Out: Is bartending in your plans for your future, or do you have other plans for your career? Amy Jo: Both. I love to sling drinks, & I love to feel like the host of the party, so I intend to continue. I will use bartending to help accomplish other goals... If & when I decide to go back to school, I’ll tend bar at the same time. One day, I’ll retire. Even then, I will stick with this industry in some other capacity. Maybe as a bar owner... Tip-Out: Describe what Amy’s Bar will be like? I’m so excited to know what we have in store, when you open your own bar...will it be anything with a new twist or a cozy little pub? Amy Jo: Yeah, well, I’m still in the daydream phase of this plan. But I like the simple idea of a lounge-style rock & roll pub. Of course there must be one or two super-sexy billiard tables off to the side. I like seeing local artists displaying their art at the bars; I think that would be a nice touch, dim lights, and good music. Tip-Out: Sounds like a place I would go. Is there an Amy Jo signature drink? What is your favorite drink to make or to drink? Amy Jo: A Pink Kitty (my own watermelon kamikaze), I love mixing shots, making margaritas, cosmopolitans..., & Irish Car bombs. No kidding. I know, I’m a bar-dork. I even like pouring a Jack & Coke. Tip-Out: What is the craziest drink request you remember having? Amy Jo: Someone I knew a long time ago insisted that Patron Silver & Red Bull was a great drink. Gross! Tip-Out: WOW that sounds disgusting. Can you tell the readers some do’s and don’ts when you go to a bar?

8 • TIP•OUT • FEBRUARY 2011

Amy Jo: Leave a tip. A good one would be rad! & don’t be a dick. That’s pretty much the bottom line. (My fellow bartenders & I have spent many hours discussing this particular topic. It’s a subject matter that we all get passionate about. I could go on & on for a long time about bad bar etiquette... yawn!!) Tip-Out: So, Amy When you aren’t mixing drinks for the lovely people of Houston, where do you like to go and what do you like to do with your time? Amy Jo: I have two beautiful sons who keep me pretty busy when I’m not at work. Otherwise I’m chillin after work at Luckys, checking out the eye-candy behind the bar. My friends & I can be found making trouble at the Next Door Bar pretty often. Tip-Out: How do you juggle being a mother and working the nightlife? Tell us your secret for staying full of energy!!! Is it difficult for you? Amy Jo: I don’t know, super powers or something. F yeah it’s hard, but I love it. I love being busy all the time, & being able to do what I love for a living. Tip-Out: That’s so awesome, and you are very good at it! What do you enjoy most about bartending at House Of Blues? Amy Jo: I love seeing the acts while I’m working. House of Blues has some great shows. I tended bar while Heart performed about 2 months ago. & then more recently, Social Distortion! Was absolutely amazing! Thank you so much for giving us peak in your world. Tip Out readers when you get a chance swing by House Of Blues and get a Pink Kitty and enjoy the music.

TIP-OUT INK

Gaslight Gallery 1416 Westheimer Rd Houston TX 77006 (713) 524-3535 This month we feature our first Female tattoo artist from Houston in Tipout as we continue to bring more diversity to our readers.Christina Sparrow has been tattooing awhile now and in the times when she started tattooing was totally dominated by the Male population, in fact women were not welcomed for an everyday appenticeship.We catch up with Christina and discuss some of this from her perspective.Enjoy! Tip-Out: So Christina let’s just fill the readers in on what you are up to these days. I figure the past is not as important than where you are going in the present. Well, right now I’m a co-owner and curator of Gaslight Gallery. We’re an art gallery open daily to the public, and custom-only tattoo and piercing parlour. I like the environment of Gaslight because it feels like an art collector’s home, with the 1930s building. We provide a venue to our community for artists to show their work, which is very humbling, because I get to interact with so many wonderful artists of different walks of life. All civilizations have had the art movements which define their culture, and with the current available connectivity, our culture is now not limited only to our cities or continents, but rather to our chosen ways of life, which tattooing and collecting tattoos have become a culture of their own. I am just happy to be a part of this movement, and provide as much inspiration and ability as I can during my lifetime. Tip-Out: I noticed where you work there are alot of studios around you. What is it you want the readers to know that they may find interesting at your studio? I think this mile or so stretch of Westheimer has been “Tattoo Alley” for some time now, but opening a new place on the strip hasn’t been easy, but it is rewarding. Gaslight offers a change of pace from other tattoo parlours because we’re an art gallery too. In addition, our piercers are very knowledgeable and

10 • TIP•OUT • FEBRUARY 2011


have a wide selection of high-grade, organic, and one-of-a-kind jewelry. As a collective, the Gaslight group contribute in as many ways as we can back to our community. We regularly hold opening parties for the artists in showing in our gallery, educate our clients about art, and donate our time and abilities to benefit those in need. Inside Gaslight Gallery, there is an amalgam of treasures hidden in the nooks and on shelves, so there is always something to look at or something to read. One of the things about which I talked with my co-owners was that I wanted to emphasize the art in our industry. I like the environment of Gaslight because it feels like an art collector’s home, with the 1930s building, original wood floors, heavy curtains, and revolving artwork. We provide a venue to our community for artists to show their work, which is very humbling, because I get to interact with so many wonderful artists of different walks of life. This ties directly into our tattooing because many of the artists we show are either tattoo collectors themselves or at least appreciative of the artform. Our tattoo clients are also art-interested for the most part. Tip-Out: I agree the studio is neat and I like the photography displayed on the walls as opposed to flash,it looks very modern. When you first got into tattooing women weren’t really allowed in tattoo shops to learn,What do you think changed that to be more mainstream? and not Katvondiddy.... That is such a multi-faceted question to answer. When my interest in tattooing was peaked, I wasn’t really aware that there weren’t many women in the industry. I’ve always been a bit brash and somewhat of a tomboy, and hanging around a bunch of dudes wasn’t something new to me. It was only after I started really tattooing that I realized there were no other women tattooers not only in that shop, but in any that I knew of. As the years have passed I’ve seen girls come and go, and they are of no more consequence to me than their male counterparts. There is a double-standard applied to women in our industry: they have to sweet or easy to get along with, and at the same time, tough enough to deal with the crazy situations that happen in a tattoo shop. Tip-Out: Yes. I can see that and its another obstacle you have to deal with being around male co workers. Yes, We are expected to be pretty and powerful, and if you have an off day, it’s more apparent than with your guy co-workers, because they don’t have mascara running if they’re upset. That being said, it may be an inclination of the times we live in that competent, strong women are wanted more than

ever in our workforce. I can’t count the amount of times a client has approached me for a custom design and said that they just wanted a woman’s point of view. It makes sense, because men who typically care what women like to see and who think about that when having their tattoo made, will probably be more satisfied with their tattoo if a woman draws it. On the other hand, a lady knows what a lady wants, and in my experience, female clients have flocked to me for just that reason. During my career I have often met disinterest in having a female artist in the shop at first, but after working, it’s quite apparent a lady tattooer is quite a draw for the clientele. If anything, it breaks up the monotony of flannel shirts and unkempt facial hair. Tip-Out And women are more tidy and keep thier work areas clean too...hahaha Tip-Out: As a female you can relate this better for our female readers that may be afraid or not sure what to get done on them and where. Can you give them some personal advice? Before getting a tattoo, everyone should consider how much of a commitment they are willing to make to a certain design. When a lady comes to me for advice on what she should get I tell her to look inside, and find what’s important, what speaks to her, and we go from there. Sometimes it’s a little thing like something her grandmother said, and that phrase is turned into script, with ribbons and banners, and a keepsake from her grandmother. Sometimes it’s a flower that makes her smile and feel warm when she sees it. Sometimes it’s a heart ripped open or a skull and a key. Every girl is different, but the great thing is, I set aside plenty of time for each customer, so we can sit together and brainstorm ideas, and they can watch me draw. I think a greater connection is made with the piece when the client witnesses the design come to life beneath my pencil. Tip-Out: I understand your shop has some stuff coming up that involves all tattoo artists in town,I love to hear anyone who is trying to bring our industry in Houston together. You care to share that info with us? Bringing our community together and giving back is important to us at Gaslight Gallery. Our latest and probably greatest event so far is Tattooed For Good. The brainchild of Kat Adlerz, Tattooed For Good benefits a local group called the Assisthers. They are a nonprofit organization that provides nonmedical in home care team support, transportation and food aid to women with life threatening and debilitating diseases. On January 22 & 23rd from noon to midnight, we are making $40 tattoos all day, typically something that will take around 10 minutes or so. There

will be live music, free food & beverages (Freebirds, Red Bull, Vitamin Water, and more TBA), drink specials at local bars, Raffle Prizes (Lush and other vendors) and tattooers donating their time up and down the strip. Gaslight Gallery Tattoo (Kat Adlerz, Christina Sparrow, Alex Cetina, Brandon Madrid) MONSTER INK (Patrick Merryman, Miranda Quinn, Dennis P.) BOMBSHELL TATTOO (Peter, Vinnie, Bryan Phillips) SCORPION TATTOO (Kevin Poon)... more to be announced The commitment we’ve gotten from each of these artists, all from different shops, is amazing. I’m thinking that after this event we will be closer as a tattoo community, because we’re all working towards the same goal. We each want to be great artists and recognized as that, some on different levels. Building a reputation for our industry as committed to doing good will help outsiders change their perception of tattooed people. Tattooed For Good will helped build that foundation for us as artists, and as people. And it will benefit a foundation that gives possibly the greatest thing a person can give to another - a helping hand. Tip-Out: Yes we plan to feature this project for you guys and gals! Any closing statements you have for our readers? We are living in modern times. The greatest part of this is the collection we have of our history as a human race. Throughout the eons tattooing has existed in all of its forms but never before as it is now. The art movement we are a part of has never before been expressed as it is currently being, and it should be celebrated as thus. I appreciate every day I wake up and get to be in this vessel, and decorate it as I see fit, and wear my tattoos proudly. When the rest of the world recognizes our significance as tattoo artists and tattoo collectors, appreciates the artform, the service we provide to our collectors, and our relevance to the art community, our job will be done. Who will wear the next piece as imperative as the Mona Lisa or Starry Night? Who will create a bodysuit comparable to the Sistine Chapel? Until then, we have many moves to make, and we never know which one will be the most significant as we make our marks in history.

So Mizuz Inkaholik would you care to share with our readers what is your driving force? I would have to say happiness and love is my driving force. They both go hand in hand in everyday life. I strive to be a wonderful wife and good role model for today’s growing tattooed community. You really can’t have one without the other. I have a lot going on right now with modeling full time, writing and helping my husband with his tattoo studio that I try not to loose site of what’s really important… LOVE… Tip-Out: Was there a point in your life at all when you feared getting a tattoo would change the way your parents feel about you? Never, my family is such a wonderful support system. My parent’s love me for who I am on the inside, the outside would never matter. I think it is always crazy to hear people say that their parents would never approve or that they hide their tattoos from their family. I want to ask, would your parents love you any less if you lost a limb in an accident or say got burned or disfigured? I know so many people with body modifications such as breast implants or even botox, but some people still accept these modifications and not tattoos or piercings. It is my body, so I should be able to make my own decisions about what I want to do with it or put on it. Tip-Out: As a hard working Alternative Pin up model, any tips and safety advice you want to share with the ladies? Thank you so much. I would love to tell any future models out there getting their portfolio together always remember safety first. Never go to a shoot with a photographer you meet on the internet without an escort, it could be a friend a brother or a spouse, but NEVER go alone. You don’t know these people and you don’t know what you are getting yourself into. Also, never do anything that makes you uncomfortable. If it doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t. If you choose to do nude modeling then you should ALWAYS keep yourself safe and in control. These are your pictures too, and they are going to be put out there. You always want the best to represent your work. Don’t sign contracts or get stuck with someone that will control your every movement. Modeling is an art form, and if someone takes control, you will loose your creativity and not be able to self express. Not to mention you may miss out on a big opportunity if you are tied down to just one thing. Last but not least, HAVE FUN that’s what this is all about. Tip-Out: You have had some massive sittings under the needle, what helps you get through a long tattoo?

12 • TIP•OUT • FEBRUARY 2011


Determination is my main man while getting tattooed. I always think about the end result and I know I can make it through it. I also use a breathing technique almost as if you are lifting weights or exercising. When my artist is tattooing I slowly exhale, when they take a break to wipe or dip in the ink cap then I deeply inhale. This works for me every time and I have been known to sit for a piece for 10 hour sessions on MANY, MANY occasions. But, I am one determined lady. Tip-Out: What has been the most memorable moment of your life? Besides my wedding to my wonderful husband, I would have to say the day that I was told I was a match to donate a kidney to my friend that desperately needed it. We are not blood related and have only known each other a few years when she told me she was going to be put on the transplant list again (she had a transplant years ago from a deceased donor that didn’t last). I without hesitation asked what I could do, after a year of testing and going back and forth to the doctor’s office we got the phone call on the way to a tattoo convention that we were a match. That was the best feeling in my life, to know that I could really help a friend in need. We had the surgery last August and she accepted my kidney like her own. Now, we are both very healthy and happy and sisters forever! I really would like to do more to educate the public on giving life; blood, plasma or even being a living donor, you can save so many people’s lives. There are people waiting now, so step up and GIVE LIFE. Tip-Out: Big stereotypes are channeled our way for being tattooed, care to shake that bush? HAHA, well, of course I would love to shake that bush (that’s what he said) I couldn’t help that! But, seriously, there are stereotypes out there for every race, sex well, too many to even mention. It’s just all ignorance. If the world was more educated about body modifications and the reasons we do it, maybe there would be less of it. I’m unsure if they will ever go away forever, with people in our industry that go out and ruin it for us (I’m not going to say names) But, I have worked my entire career to prove that a heavily tattooed lady can still be a classy, noble lady. Then you see on the news that someone that is heavily tattooed is being WAY less then classy. We take 1 step forward and 2 steps back. I think the best thing we can do as professional upstanding people is break the stereotypes one smile at a time. If you are nice to the people that are staring or pointing and speak to them, they will then see that you are actually an educated, genuine person that just happens to be colored (brightly, with tattoos). Tip-Out: What is in the future for Mizuz Inkaholik? Lot’s of work... I have to say I don’t know what’s in my future, but what ever it is I will be happy with it. I will continue to help my husband with his tattoo studio and modeling, of course. I am currently writing a book, so keep an eye out for that. Let’s not forget getting more ink!! That’s awesome an it is so nice to see you wear your ink with so much class and grace.

A Digital Death So Tip-Out proudly got to sit with the guys from A Digital Death to bring you the latest hot off the press as they launch with their new lead frontman,Brooks Barley (vocalist & front man). Formally known as Erase the Virus from Clearlake a Houston Hit in the Industrial music genre.So we wanted to be the first to print the beginning of a new journey of artists. Tip-Out: So Ben tell our readers a little background on the band and sort of prep the stage for us. Well, A Digital Death is the former members of ERASEtheVIRUS, also known as ETV. ETV was originally formed back sometime in 2003 or 2004 by Chris Navasatis, the former front man. I joined the group in 2004 and basically ended up becoming the main song writer and producer for the band. ETV then released two records within two years starting in 2008 and I have recently been in the process of writing and producing a third, up until the turn of the year, when we as a group decided to go our separate ways from the original front man and reform as a whole new act. After a week or so of coming up with new names, A Digital Death was born. The current members of the band are myself, Benji Bordelon (bass & vocals), Alex Slay (drums), Chris Hardy (guitars), Jeff SMith (guitars) and finally our new addition to the group, Brooks Barley (vocalist & front man). During our time as ETV, we formed a huge fan base here in Houston and attempted to reach out further. We have shared stages with other national and international acts such as Korn, The Lords of Acid, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult, Rehab, StaticX, Julien-K, Dope, Wednesday 13, 16 Volt and many more. We have been able to hold on to our fan base and sustain new bookings with The Genetorturers in February and then The Lords of Acid in March of this year. We’re really looking forward to performing with LOA again. Tip-Out: What do you consider to be the driving force behind your work in the studio and with the band? I would say that it is our passion to succeed in the music industry combined with our love of the industrial genre that is the driving force behind our creative endeavors. Tip-Out: What is the concept behind A Digital Death? The Digital part harkens back to our roots as ETV while Death in and of itself symbolizes a rebirth for the band as a whole. Plus, all of us have A.D.D., thus the acronym.

Tip-Out: Hahhahaha Thats cool as hell, I noticed the trend of electronics in your name change... What is the worst thing you have to deal with as a recording artist? First of all, finding the time to record is difficult with our rehearsal schedule (we are gearing up for two major shows). Second, trying to keep our unique sound and being able to continue to provide music that our fans will connect with. Tip-Out: So you guys plan on bringing more punch to the stage with some theatrical additives and hmmmmm? Blood? Yes. Blood and when allowed, fire. An excellent combination in front of the right crowd. We are also wanting to utilize the lighting and other effects that we have at our disposal. Bringing in a female entertainer or two will spice things up a bit as well. Tip-Out: OOooooo La-La this is going to be interesting... Care to share you current plans and projects you have lined up for us? Well, we are recording our first album and plan to have a couple of singles released very soon. Also, we have a show coming up on February 19th with The Genitorturers and one on March 19th with The Lords of Acid. We’d love to see everyone out there at Scout Bar in the Clear Lake area. Tip-Out: We will most definately be there... What is the bands stance in a political point of view? We are liberally retarded. That is as political as we get with our music. Tip-Out: Any last words or any plugs you want to mention feel free! We want to thank Pulled Nerve Productions for the hard work and excellent job they did recording both albums of EraseTheVirus’s and the new Digital Death album. Any musician out there that wants to get recorded should contact them at (281) 896-6468. I would also like to let our friends and fans who have stuck with us over the past half decade know that we appreciate them. Get ready for new things! Well alright, Thank you Ben for your time and we send you off with our support and endorse you guys in all that you do.We will be sure to bring you guys back around for the readers before the year is up! Be sure to support our local music scene in Houston and go see a show ,these guys are on the prowl...
