NUDE: W h y do you tattoo W h at does th e art of tattooing do for you personally Damon: Tattoo artists are know n as one of th e last of th e nom adic ypsy trades. M y love for tattooing h as u nfolded over th e last tw o dec ades and, like any relationsh ip, it h as its u ps and dow ns. Its th e c h allenges th at h ave m ade m e a w iser person and given m e th e privilege of learning abou t people on a deeper level. s an artist, partic ipating in th e c elebration and ritu al of tattooing h as been an anc h or in m y life. Its been th e one c onstant th at h as gotten m e th rou gh , no m atter w h at, and h as expanded m y m ind w h ile c onnec ting w ith th ou sands of people. NUDE: ow did you originally get into tattooing Damon: fter traveling u p and dow n New ealand, living a som ew h at oh em ian lifestyle, I landed in th e largest c ity. I dec ided th at it w as tim e to settle for a bit and look at bu ilding a c areer. Tattooing w as one of th e options I gave m yself. new stu dio opened in m y neigh borh ood and I m ade m y w ay dow n th ere one day. Ph ill M ath ias, w h o soon bec am e m y m entor, asked if I w as into art and if I c ou ld bring in m y artist portfolio for h im to take a look. etu rning th e follow ing day, he looked at m y art and offered m e an apprentic esh ip on th e spot. t th at tim e, h is stu dio w as th e best tattoo stu dio in th e c ity. I h ad no idea w h at I w as w alking into and th u s m y tattoo life began. NUDE: W h at type of ritu als do you h ave to get ready to tattoo a c lient Damon: or m e, tattooing h as a very strong energy abou t it. Its a past and present ritu alistic experienc e. E ven if people are not th at w ay, th ey re inc lined to u nderstand m ore spirited w ays. Tattooing sh ou ld h ave a positive effec t on one s life and being. M y m ain foc u s w h en w orking w ith a c lient is to m ake su re th at Im u p and in a positive and balanc ed state c om pletely foc u sed on w h at is needed for m e to perform at m y best. NUDE: D o you ever get nervou s before you tattoo Damon: I dont tend to get nervou s before tattooing. I d rath er go ou t gu ns blazing th an to h ave failed in a life filled w ith fear. I th ink w ith regard to being nervou s, its m ore th e anxiety of som e c lients th at c an really c reate stress. I tru ly believe if c lients h ave faith in an artist and let th em do th eir th ing, good artists fu nc tion better and ac h ieve greater resu lts.
