J A D ALLI E SO N
IF YOU DONT KNOW WHO JADE ALLISON IS YOU MUST HAVE BE SLEEPING UNDER A FUCKING ROCK, WE HAD TO BRING DOWN ONE OF THE UKâ€™S BEST TATTOO MODELS WHO IS TAKING OVER RIGHT NOW. SOME PEOPLE ARE BORN TO BE A STAR AND JADE IS ONE OF THEMMEET OUR MAIN FEATURE/COVERGIRL MISS JADE ALLISON We know you have been dancing for 10 years and have had some amazing opportunities along your path but how did you get into dancing? I stated dancing when I was 9, I knew from the moment I started it was what I wanted to do it. At 19 I moved to London to pursue my career, I didn't have an agent but just stared doing classes. And you have done well since then like dancing for Kylie Minogue, how did you get to do that? when I heard about an audition for Kylie Minogue "can't get u out of my head" video. I thought what the hell and gate crashed it. lol I ended up getting the job and just pretended I was with an agent. from then on I was lucky and worked with kylie for two years and various different artists
Thats a story to tell the kids, lol, you was in some bbc tv advert dancing, we have seen it and we cant see any tattoos, lol, how long ago was that? Haha yes I was it was a bbc ident. How did u know about that lol. Lol, we know every thing about you. It was about 10 years and yes I had no tattoos then. I hadn't turned to the dark side loool Well we are happy that you did. Lol, at the moment apart from doing your modeling you are a dancer at ''Cirque Du Soir'' one of londons best nightclubs, what is that like? I love it. You get to be very creative and think up all kinds of outfits. its full of celebrities and great people I have so much fun. We bet it is, we are going to have to come down and see whats its all about you was working when justin Bieber came to party at the club and didnt get in, lol, what happend. He came in for a short time but got mobbed haha. Lol, when did you decide to cross over to modelling and why? I guess just like the dancing I just had a lucky break. I tried it along time ago before I had tattoos but it didn't work I guess I was too short. But the alternative look works for me and I seem to work more :) I've been lucky with the amazing opportunities I've had do far and hope they keep coming. They will, your road
as a alternative model ell t t u b s a has just started and de y e you have done a lot ‘’I have i h t d n a s t s already. Your cv to o arti o t t s a t e date is endless, what y m tim 0 0 1 t i would you say was aw r d ’ s ’ y e a n your first big i w g a al m i d l u break? o c I n a h t Defiantly working with kylie minogue. It better
was my first real job which I'm sure most people can't say and from there it opened many of doors you are signed to Another Level's Dane Bowers model agency ''DDA'' how did that come about? He actually saw my fan page and contacted me on there. Not to sure how he found me I never asked. He asked me to go a long to a casting for his agent where we talked through my work and where I want to go in the future. A couple of days later I was contacted saying he would represent me. I was so happy. When it comes to you we would say that you are mostly covered already but Is there anywhere you wouldn't tattoo? Never. I used to say I've never do my tattoos but I guess I was wrong because I got it done at the last
tattoo convention. lol How long ago did you start working on your ink, did you originally plan to cover as much of your body as you have? I've been getting tattooed now for over 10 years. No I never panned this I just kept seeing space and kept collecting. I love the way I look and have no regrets. Thats what we like to hear.
about and when are we going to get some goods,lol Well I've done afew t-shirts for other people which has my image on which people seem to love. My brother came up with the idea. It seems silly doing it for other people and not myself. I thought what the hell do I'm in the progress and getting my brand image and logo which I'm sure will also be my next tattoo How do you deal with the pain and what was the most painful tattoo so far? It's amazing how long you can sit through that pain and let me tell you I don't enjoy it one bit but I guess when you see the outcome it's worth it. My palm was by far the worst pain I've ever experienced. Although I still want my other one done haha What is the best tattoo you have seen in your life? WOW. I've seen many not even sure I have a favourite. Normally any full body coverage is amazing to look at Do you not like naked skin LOL? Not on me no ha ha, it's weird looking back on photos. I much prefer tattoos lets face it we are more interesting
â€œI LOVE THE WAY I LOOK AND HAVE NO REGRETSâ€™
Ill never stop there is no limit with me. I don't care what people think and I love to shock :) Have you ever forgotten about any of your tattoos and woken up thinking what the hell? I wouldn't say I forgot but when I got my face done I wouldn't look in the mirror for afew days and when I did I was like OMG. But I still love it It looks cool on you. you have your own clothing brand coming out soon, we know your fans are going to love it, how did that come
MAIN FEATURE to look at naked ;) What tattoo shop and artists do you go to?
t h g i r e h t t e ‘’G d n a t s i t ar ’ ’ p a e h c o g never
I always go frith street in soho. My main artists are Valerie Vargas and Stewart Robson.
What inspires you in choosing your tattoos? My husband is very inspiring and gives me lots of ideas he knows what I like and what suits me and the fact I have the best Tattoo artists. I'm a lucky girl Have you designed any of your tattoos? I have ideas but tell my tattoo artists and thru always draw it 100 times better than I could imagine Last meal you cooked? Tuna stake and salad. Me and hubby like to eat heathy What advice would you give to girls that want to get covered and model like you? It's a big decision and doesn't work out for everyone. Get the right artist for you and never go cheap. Ill help and support anyone because I know it's a hard game to be in. But good luck and have fun. Did you enjoy your day with Paperchasers Ink? I had so much fun. Such a great team and Id defo work with you guys again What do you think of Paperchasers Ink? I love it. All my favourite things in one magazine. Tattoos,music, fashion and fun for those not involved they are missing out :) Whats next for you this year? Who knows I like things to take me by surprise. As you've mentioned I have my t-shirt out. Many more shoots in the pipeline ANC lots of fun and laughter along the way. Thank you for being our main feature and we wish you the best of luck with everything that you do,
L esley it was good to have you come down to the shoot and show us your ink, so tell us what got you into getting tattoos? When I was younger, I went to a lot of gigs and concerts with friends and always saw loads of tattooed people there. I always thought they looked really interesting and the girls always looked hot! And there's also the fact that my mum hated tattoos and you know when parents tell their kids they can't do something...spurs them on to do it anyway! So I guess it was me being rebellious but my first one was tiny anyway! Once you get one you know you're getting more. They're mega addictive. So you are a dancer by trade, tell us how you got into that? You make it sound like I do ballet haha! Ended up smashing Lol i t t Yes I am a dancer of the erotic variety. hat night Basically I was working in a bar with a and just h aven't friend and she was short on money so she l ooked bac asked if I'd come along with her one night k! to work at a club in Leeds. I went with her and she was dead shy and so I just got us both drunk and found myself getting asked if I wanted to go for dances etc. Ended up smashing it that night and just haven't looked back! Thats the way, a little bird told us that you are going to be in NUTS magazine is it true and how did that come about? It is true yes!! I'm going to be in Issue 22 on the Bedroom Babes competition! So who hooked you up? It was all down to Suzie Shaw (mainstream glamour model) and Charlie Z (alternative adult model) who put me through to the guys at Nuts! After many emails back and forth the guys loved my look and I'm going to be one of the few alternative models gracing the pages so you'll have to look out for me and vote for me on the Nuts website! What is the most interesting tattoo you have? My Zombie Pin-Up Girl! Underneath her it says "Need Brainz" and everyone always reads it out loud then notices her above it! It's quite a conversation starter! She's not finished yet but when she is she's gonna be horribly beautiful!
FEATURE Nice, so at what age did you start getting tattoos? 18 of course! Anyone who gets them done younger than the legal age in my eyes is an idiot. And it's these people who look back at a piece when they're 25 and wanna get it covered because they hate it and its faded. No reputable artist would tattoo anyone underage so you're bound to have a shoddy tattoo that's faded by that point. Thats so true, what is the most sexy tattoo that you have seen on a girl in your life? I know so many tattooed models it's hard to pick just one! Come on lol Also I don't think I could pick out just one tattoo on a girl that I think is sexy! Give us a name of a uk model who’s tattoo you think is sexy? Nina Terror has just had an under bust tattoo done and so has Lusy Logan and they're both EXTREMELY different but equally as sexy so I'm gonna go for the under bust tattoo (but I don't like Rihanna's) Get the fuck out of here, lol rihanna’s tattoo looks hot on her, dont know what it would look like on someone else but on her it’s a good look, we also like lusy logans ink. How much more ink do you plan to get? I plan to get my legs done, not covered but I think just 2 or 3 big pieces because I don't actually have any large pieces (my sleeves don't count cause they're all bits of stuff) so I'm definitely gonna go onto my legs next! All outlines of course. That's kinda my thing. How did you start modelling from dancing? A girl who I danced with was going to a photoshoot and I went with her and had a couple of shots they were horrific but it kind of spurred me on in the right direction. A year later I started getting a bit more serious about it and then starts focussing on getting signed etc. Tell us what has been your favourite and worst job so far and why? I'm not sure whether you mean modelling jobs or mainstream jobs so ill do both! I've never had a bad modelling job so my favourite had to be London Alternative Weekend in Angel because that was my first catwalk and first ever experience with latex and detailed corsetry. Sounds sexy, lol, so whats your weirdest shoot? My weirdest was a shoot I did for a feature film coming out this year called Dementamania, but when it comes out you'll see why! I have less tattoos and you can't see my hair but you should know it's me!
‘’I l a se anded in hea mi-n po ake n and the d flo fr my actur or ed wri st ’’
Send us the info when that comes out Best mainstream job has to be that I'm a dancer! Pick my own hours, Ok Work when I want, Thats good Drink on the job, Mmmmm learn to poledance....great earning potential...what more could you ask for! Sold, lol sign us up, lol Worst job doesn't exist because I'm awesome and make every job good. Lol, what is the most embarrassing moment you have had as a dancer? I was doing a stage show for a stag group and the guy got pissed off cause I poured water over his head and he threw me off the stage. That was pretty embarrassing considering I landed in a semi-naked heap on the floor and fractured my wrist. Shit, thats fucked up, so do you have any spontaneous tattoos or are they all planed? My feet are spontaneous. It's just loads of cherry blossoms but the shop that I used to work at was dead quiet and me and all the other apprentices were messing around and I dared one to tattoo me while I pierced the other while he tattooed the one who was tattooing me. Needless to say I was the one in the most pain because your feet HURT. Lol, that must have been fun, talking about shops, what tattoo shop do you go to, and what is the name of your artist or artists? Infinite Ink in Leeds - Simon Sowden Oddfellows in Leeds - Scott Mustapic Did you enjoy your day with us at the shoot? IT WAS AWESOME What do you think of Paperchasers ink? Never seen a magazine like it before and it definitely needs to be on the shelves! Sound group of people and a well put together publication! Keep up the good work guys! Thank you miss rose for spending time with us.
2013 is going to be a crazy year for us and we want you to be a part of it, become a member, come to our events, send us news, send in your photos, join the team.
BY PAPERCHASERS INK
E e had to get down Miss Layercake to talk about her ink since she has been showing the magazine mad love on twitter and Facebook by posting, tweeting and showing the world about the magazine, so as we do, we got her down, She has recently become a Paperchasers ink magazine rep so you will see more of her in the mag but for now lets get to know her. Tell us about yourself: Hey the names Miss LayerCake & I am 25 from London town currently living in Dubai. I'm a freelance model/tattoo model and work in partnership with (The Honeys Model Agency) and Face4Music Models.
I've always enjoyed taking pictures, jumping to be in the middle and front of everyone when taking pictures. That's just always been me lol. I also love how fashion ties in with modelling, they just compliment each other like Ink compliments Skin!!! Your trying to get into modelling, how did you start As i grew everyone started telling me how photogenic I was. So I went and done a few test shoots and got great feed back and opportunities I just never looked back & made shit happen. What about the ink what got you started Ive always admired people who had tattoos, older family members, famous people & I grew up in the US where ink has always been a popular thing and trend. What do you love about tattoos? The way tattoos could be used to show a person's beliefs, Personality or Character was something i always marvel at. I love how two people could get the same tattoo in the same place at the same time from the same artist & they still look different. Yes thats crazy As I got a little older I started to go into shops just to look at the drawings and pictures, it was then I changed my opinion on what an artist was. The skill & patience that alot of tattooist had amazed me. What age did you start? after getting my first henna tattoo of a fairy on my lower back at the age of 16 Ink just became so beautiful. I then went the following week and got my first real tattoo. Same place same style and that was the beginning I just never looked back. I love this as its a way of expressing myself and just showing off the Loving Fun Caring Sexy Inked MissLayerCake that I am. How much more in are you going to get? I don't have an answer when people ask me when do I plan on stopping getting inked. Ill either keep going till my skin runs out of space, till im content and old, till I pass away or till my creative individual thought's leave me lol. My body is My Story, My Masterpiece, My Art My Expression of Moi!!! Whats the most painfull tattoo that you have had done so far? The most painful tattoo for me has to of been my stomach tatt Ooooucch! I got a rose on there with "Jadore Moi" written under it and my goodness it hurt like hell lol. Lol, no pain no gain I was nearly ready to give up and quite half way through haaha I always say if this was my first tattoo it probably would of been my last lol.â€Ś
FEATURE Its only pain at the time and then its over, so what part of your body would you not get inked? The only places I wouldn't get tatted is my face as its perfect as it is lol & its nearly impossible to hide. That's what you say now but we will see what ink you have in a couple years, lol lol an second would be my head as I just think the pain would kill me lol You have a new butterfly tattoo, when did you get that? Yuuup the day after the magazine shoot I went and got a butterfly on my left shoulder, Is that how we got you feeling, lol I was feeling very Inky & just like a addict needs drugs I needed my ink fix ha. How do you plan your tattoos? I plan my tattoos alot always thinking what's next always on Google researching always exploring ideas. Also depending on what's going on in my life always has a lot to do with it as certain things that happen whether good or bad offer me ideas and offer me ways of expressing those feelings thoughts or emotions through creativity turning it into a thing of beauty. I do take my time planning them as I try to always live without regrets. Yet as soon as I have an idea i just run with it. I priorities my tatts in a way that it always looks complete I hate when my body looks half done or uneven. What are you going to get next? My next tattoo will be to fill in all the space remaining on my arms, the left arm/shoulder is becoming a garden filled with butterflies, dragonfly's vines and leaves and the right arm/shoulder is nearly done with clouds and stars sun rays stairway to the sky's and heavens. Its going to look nice when its all done NO PAIN NO GAIN!!!! That's real talk,lol LAST BUT NOT LEAST a big shout out to yourselves at PaperChasers Ink Thank you, its bit of a silly qeustion due to the fact that our photo shoots are hot but, lol did you have day with us? I had an amazing time shooting for the
FEATURE magazine, I met so many of my fellow ink addicts, models, music artist etc its always nice to be surrounded by people who all share the same passion as ourselves. Thats what we are about. Its Art Its Inkology! What do you think of the magazine so far? I think PaperChasersInk is a brilliant idea and concept and magazine, one of a kind for the urban seen and I misslayercake am extremely greatfull to of been apart of this Global Movement! Thank you miss World Wide Baby Woopwooop NOW STUDY MY INKOLOGY AND WATCH MY MODEL BEHAVIOUR XXX I MissLayerCake Loves PAPERCHASERSINK!!! One love , Keep it ink
e ey Poppy, it was good having you down to feature in this issue, did you have a good day with us? Yeah I had a really good day! I loved the vibe! Thank you, it was good to have you down, lets start at the beginning with asking you, apart from your mum owning two tattoo shops was there anything else that got you into tattooing? I've always loved art! Before my mum opened the shops she was involved with a tattoo artist and every aspect of tattoos fascinated me, being able to express yourself through art is amazing in its self! That's true so what is your 9 to 5? I'm a bartender at The Golden Bee in Shoreditch! You have been in some music videos and recently featured in Manga's (roll deep) music video, how was that? It was good, he's a really good friend so I didn't really see it as work! Plus where ever I can help my friends I will! Plus they all want the tattoos in screen lol! Lol, they love it,what's is it like working in the music side of things? It's interesting! I've had the opportunity to be around some amazing people and show the world that tattoos are not a taboo anymore! They are far from a taboo nowadays ,what other projects have you done in the past? I've been apart of P Money's clothing label. We had to do the shoot at Love Box last year.. It was one of the most amazing things in ever done! Doing everything I love! Running around Victoria park getting my pictures taken and raving to get the best shot! That must have been crazy, Love Box is the nuts, so how easy was it when you first started piercing? Was you scared of making a mistake? Yeah of course I was scared! Pushing a needle through someone's skin is always going to be scary! But I wanted to do it so I saw past it lol!
g n i v a eh v o l f ‘’i o s o tatto that s g n ’’ i y h t p p ha e m make
FEATURE Any chance of you start doing tattoos, have you ever tattooed anyone before? I've always wanted to learn but I haven't got time! I'd rather open a shop! Business minded like your mum, thats good, whats the Best modelling job that you have had so far? I worked with the clothing label Trapstar a few years ago, they where by far the best people iv worked with! Thats a good brand,weirdest place you've pierced? Lol I dunno.. I don't really see piercing a as weird.. How many piercings do you have and where are they, are you going to get anymore? I don't know how many I have. Iv had A LOT but I get bored so I just take them out. I don't plan on getting anymore but you never know! Thats true, never say never, how do you deal with the pain when your getting inked? Loads of sweets, loud dubstep and chewing gum! What was the Last tattoo you had done and who was the artist? The last tattoo I had done was the elephant on the back of my leg, it's part of my leg sleeve! The artist who done it is Miguel he works at Kinky Ink! Miguel is a crazy artist, he is working on Creepa’Ss ink, what's the next step that you planned to take your career? Take over the world with tattoos! Lol, thats what we are going to do as well, how much more ink do you plan to get, have you planned your next one yet? I don't really plan my tattoos I just get them, I plan

Hhonenix is a cool girl on the way to big things, we are happy to have her down for issue two, We ask her some things as she show us her ink. So what did you think of the shoot? The shoot was amazing! So much fun. To be honest the whole day was. The whole team were superb, so easy to get on with and made everyone feel very welcome & comfortable. We had a lot of laughs! What got you into tattoos? I'm a very artistic person anyway and I've always been into drawing and writing poetry. Tattoos to me, are my stories, a gateway into my life and who I am. You have done some published work like FUXYZ Magazine and DIVA Magazine , how did you get into modelling? Well I'm a hairstylist too and it was actually through a salon that I used to work for about 10 years ago. They were entering the British Hairdressing Awards and asked to use me as a model. I enjoyed it so much that I pursued modelling as another career path. Do you always go to the same artist and why? I'm actually sponsored by a tattoo studio in Hitchin, Hertfordshire called Panic Ink. A guy there called Jimmy does all my work. He is amazing as an artist and I wouldn't go anywhere else. When you build up that connection with your artist they know what you like etc and together can come up with some great ideas and pieces. How do your family react when you come home with new tattoos? They all like the ink that I've got so far but have
asked me not to get anymore lol. What's in your mind as your on the way to the tattoo shop? I'm buzzing! I love going to the studio anyway because the guys and the atmosphere is so amazing, some days if I'm not working I'll go in and just chill with them, have a bit of banter etc. But when I'm on my way to get inked I'm overly excited and can't wait to get in there and see the finished results. Do you regret any of your tattoos? and if so why? No, I don't regret any of my tattoos. Each one means something to me and I got them for a reason. I could never just pick a random design to get, they all need to have a story and reason why behind them What was the best thing you liked about the photo shoot? I'd have to say meeting the whole team and getting to know everyone. I came away from the shoot in love with everyone who was there, including the other models, make up artists, everyone! Lol
â€œ I d o n ' t re g re t a n y of my tatt Each one oos. somethin means g I got them to me and for a reas onâ€?
Is there any place on your body that you wouldn't tattoo? As much as I'd love to be tattooed from head to toe, I'd have to say that in reality I wouldn't tatt my head or face. At the moment I'm still quite versatile with my look so can work as an alternative / tattooed model but I still have the option of working more high end / fashion, so I wouldn't go too over the top with my ink. So what are your plans for the rest of the year? To get more ink (just don't tell the family!) And to continue with my career paths. My aim right now is to be featured and published in as many tattoo magazines as possible. But who knows what's round the corner, just going to keep my head down and continue to work hard Hard work always pays off, thank you for coming down, we wish you all the best luck,
FEATURE We know this was your first time in front of the camera like this but how did you find being a model for the day?
â€œNo am not A mem ber of The illu minati Lolâ€?
Yeah this one the first time but I found it very fun and didn't have much rest which I liked! Enjoyed having a face paint mask put on me! But I did enjoy it alot! Is modelling something you have been planning to take up or now considering?
Maybe if I had alot more tattoos but at the present time no haha! What made you do decide you wanted to get your sleeves done? And was it originally planned to be a full sleeves? I went to a tattoo convention in Brighton randomly at the age of like 17 and from then it made me want tattoos seeing so many people with nice tattoos just made me think I'm definitely going to have sleeves when I get to the right age and decide what I want! You've got many, What's your favourite tattoo so far? It has got to be my all seeing eye as it's such a talking point as you find people have many ideas on what it means. I believe that it is the all seeing eye of god. No I am not a member of the illuminati ha ha! Initially as someone that had no ink to start with how did you go about selecting your design and artist/shop? I new I wanted black & grey and come across my artist shopping and is still my artist who has done all my work which is Amanda At Aggys Ink in North London check her stuff out!! Why do you think people become so addicted to tattoos?
Personally when I look at the gaps in between tattoos or spaces it makes me just what to put something meaningful in their so I guess that's the same for some others. If you changed your mind about a tattoo would you get it removed or covered? I don't have any tattoos I would get removed or changed but if I was so I'd cover it up! But I wouldn't do any of it as even if it's a bad tattoo there is some memory within the tattoo and the time you got it done would be stupid to remover/cover! What do you think about the idea of an urban tattoo magazine? It's a great idea as there isn't a UK magazine which offers this apart from Paperchasers Ink Did you enjoy your time with the team? Yes very friendly team and a good laugh! What do you think of Paperchasers ink? Very impressed hope to see the magazine grow!

W e had to get down two of south London's best tattoo shop but the twist is that they are both owned by one boss lady Danasa, we ask her abit about what got her in the business and what's next for the shops and we get down two of her artists Eve and Miguel to see what's up. Paperchasers Ink is teaming up with the shops this year to bring you some events, competitions and more ink stuff so make sure that you look out for all that.
EVE & MIGUEL
Can you tell us a little history about the shops. DANASA- I opened the first shop: TattooHotspot Tooting in 2003, I saw a gap in the market for the art that I loved, and through people that I knew I successfully opened, which became a very busy studio with a good reputation. What inspired you to originally open Kinky Ink? DANASA- Due to the location of the first shop, I felt that we needed to move into better premises as the shop became to small to manage the amount of custom we had acquired ....and that's how Kinky Ink was born!! Kinky Ink is a great name! How did you come up with it? DANASA- The shop that I had found was painted in a grey brown colour, very dull, So, I decided to paint it bright pink so people would notice it immediately, and then I had to think of a name...........Pinky ink came to mind, Thats a good name as well. DANASA- But I thought it was a bit TOO girly.....and as I drove along one day, I thought, hold on a second Danasa.....your a kinky sort of girl lol DANASA- Why not call the shop KINKY INK?? then I thought......the ink will be incorporated into the

Went and recorded the idea and then got feedback from a few close people then decide to pay for a professional demo to be made. And the rest writes itself.. You have been making a name for yourself and doing big things, If you had to tick a box what genre would you say your music is? I can't place my music directly in any box, but if I had to pick ill say

And Mac was a cool dude too and his team took care of us. Was took much jokes. You need to holla at us next time and we wil come out and see you, Recently you've also worked on a track with Sway, do you feel it's given you the opportunity to reach out to fans from a new genre?

We bring you fashion features in each issue of the magazine from shops, clothing brands, jewellery companies and more
ets start this off by saying thanks for joining us on this issue with all the snap backs and fitted’s. You welcome it was a pleasure and thank you for the invite . what did you think of the shoot? I think the shoot was very successful, it was contingency planned very well which helped smooth out any problems during the day. It had a very professional tone but still had a calm and friendly atmosphere. Your choice of participants was well chosen, with good attitudes resulting in constructive networking during the day. All this only adds to your already structured branding intentions. Thumbs up. apart from selling some hot brands like ‘’LUKE’’ ‘’polo’’ in the shop, you
also have your own brand of body bags, how did that came about and what have you got planed next with that? Our in house brand is called Eon Blacks. Our first and only product at the moments is a shoulder pouch/holster which straps across your back and comfortably sits under your arm. The company originally came together on the verge of the introduction of man bags, and posed and option for those that weren't quite ready for a full transition over. Surprisingly it was embraced by more diverse groups than we anticipated and became a small success in itself in the UK and overseas. So whats next? Now with its official relaunch this year Eon Blacks is looking to leave an
ABOUT EONS BLACKS
The company is a group of individuals who formed a solid team with foundations unmovable and durable like concrete. We emerged from the UK Streets with the intention of embracing the world,through our cutting edge fashion and innovative approach. Overcoming adversity is always going to be difficult and only the fittest and most diverse will survive in a world plagued by hate,envy and greed. We promote none of the aforementioned.
innovative and creative footprint with an indefinite depth seasoned with some exiting collaborations and releasing more colours of bags and the introduction of its first official line. it is good to see a man of your age to have your own shop so who or what inspired you to start your business? As previously mentioned Eon Blacks was started spontaneously, sparked by a gap in the market at the time. Once we had sold a lot through avenues such as shops, festivals, hand to hand and online it was inevitable that our own shop would be next and theres nothing better then surrounding your brand with other similar well respected brands. An opportunity arose and we reacted like
calculated opportunists. so tell us Mr blacks have you got any tattoos, if so what is it and if no then why the hell not? Ahhhh the heats on lol nah no tattoos yet. I wasn't really feeling them until a few events happened in my life that I feel need to documented down and i feel my body makes the best book. Hopefully by the next edition I'll get a lil PA and i'll show you lot some tatted flesh lol What obstacles or challenges have you faced in starting your business and how did you overcome them?
wait ‘’We cant t a to see wh ns new desig s ack the eon bl p eu team com ’ with next’
We promote peace,prosperity and unity. Our products are for those who want to take risks in a world where those who do so are to be the only winners,In the long run….haters will always lose,if you are unadventurous in life you will always survive,but the individual who takes the risk and strives for success and lets no obstacles stop them from moving,will inevitably predetermine their journey out of the box. We present to you a construction of this fore said pronouncement Think outside of the box,think Eon Blacks…..

Many spanners have been thrown in the works but its always solved with perseverance and getting your hands dirty. Never give into an excuse especially how we live in a google error lol any infos attainable. do you have for advice for those aspiring to start their own business? Most importantly the hardest part is the beginning, Like Angel says in one of his songs "Legends are made of believers" but in the beginning theres never a lot of them so you need to believe double as much in yourself just to get of the starting block because even loved ones can be indirect haters.

How do you come up with your new designs? Tell us about your creative process The shoulder pouch design y a came from relevance, d ery â€œI grind ev practicability and the circle nt of fashion.

Our future products our all inspired from inner city living and personal life experiences so be sure to get a bit of the Eon Blacks collectives life within the products. what is the best tattoo that you have seen in your life? I like picture tattoos and one that caught my eyes was a kung fu fight scene, but i'm a big believer that words are powerful, and yes i do have a favourite few words but..... you'll have to wait till i put it on me to see it. your website is up and running, what can people find on it?

Hey Di, it was great to have you down and Feature your work Thankyou for having me, it was an amazing day and such a wonderful team. Felt very welcome. How long have you been making jewellery? I have been making jewellery for just over a year now. I have self taught myself using tutorials and jewellery books and attended a 5 week course at my local college. How did you come about to start making jewellery? I started jewellery making after the birth of my daughter. After trying to return to work, I realised it wasn't possible so decided to take the plunge and start a jewellery business. The first piece I
made was a bracelet for my Mum on Mother's Day. After that I concentrated on charm bracelets and shamballa bracelets. But now I just concentrate on what materials I like working with, and am trying out different themes such as Steampunk Jewellery. Where do you get your inspiration for new first lines like “The the lips piece I we had de was a a m feature in r bracelet fo this issue? my Mum The on inspiration ther's for the lips Mo Day” came to me at 11pm at night. I had seen a picture of a mouth on television earlier and wondered how easy it would be to make
FASHION one using the fimo clay. I was surprised I could actually do it and each one is hand moulded so no 2 are ide ntical. I started with red and black lips and since then I just keep adding more colours, different type chains and both silver and gold variations. Do you have any new lines coming out that you could share with us? I am currently working on one more colour for the lips and that's neon. My next big clay project is an eye. I would like to make a large eye pendant with false eyelas hes to make it sta nd out. At the moment I'm in love with spikes and skulls. Im working on earrings, necklaces and bracelets. Definitely the look for your magazine.
How much do the lips sale for and where can people buy them? My lip necklaces are £6 and this price includes the P&P. Lip collection is also available in a ring, brooch and earrings which are £3 including P&P. You can get them from either my Storenvy store at www.disgems.storenvy.c om or contact me on my facebook page and place an order. Did you enjoy your day with team? I had such a lovely day with the team. I found everyone to be so friendly and such a laugh. Never been to a shoot before so was very nervous but soon relaxed and had a great day. What do you think about the Paperchasers ink magazine? I think the magazine is brilliant. Love all the articles, pictures. So much so I am looking to get my first bit of ink in the summer. Know what I want, just trying to work out where. Well if you need some help picking just let us know, thank you for coming down and keep up what your doing,

TATTOO NATION T
T attoos are taking over twitter at the moment with people consistently plugging pictures, photographs and links to sick art work. This s definitely a trending topic right now.
In the 20th century all that changed was that tattooing became more popular and was something that working class people could now do.

I also find that my interest in tattoos is growing and I really do get a lot of pleasure in looking at other people's art. I think tattooing can be a really beautiful way to express yourself especially artistically, although the life term commitment has often scared me.

Hi my names a.reid and I was a feature in the first issue of Paperchasers ink magazine. I joined the team on this shoot to help the features settle, feel comfortable, That for me went well because I've already featured and modelled for Paperchasers ink so I knew what to expect and that helped me walk the features through their day. Other than help out behind the scenes myself and five star firms helped with the interviews and the newly introduced "hot seat" which you will also see in the 2nd edition of pci#2. In all today shoot went very well met a lot of new people and not only as part of the team was I happy with the progress made since the first issue but it made me very happy to see what big things are to come with Paperchasers Ink.

I got the bug for tattoos on my 18th birthday when I was bought one as a present. It was text on my back which reads "sadness flies away on the wings of love" this was the icebreaker! I have had 8 more since then and they are all very different in size and style. Recently I have found an amazing tattooist who I have trusted to do bigger tattoos on me. our out of the nine tattoos are skulls and these are my favourites. The largest one of my arm is of a lady with half a skeleton face, this symbolises and means a lot if you look deeper into it. The other three are fun, I have mr & mrs skulls on my feet and a skeleton smoking a pipe with a moustache and top hat on my other arm. I will continue to get tattoos and have a lot more ideas for new ones. I will not stop until I'm covered! What got you into tattoos? feel it's a way to express yourself and be more individual.

HERE COMES THE
BOOM NEW YORK CITY INK
y name is CC and I'm from the land of meatballs and vodka (yep you guessed itSweden!) I wanted tattoos for as long as I can remember. But it was not something that was accepted in my family. That was one of the reasons why it took me so long to get started. (So now I get 2 tats at a time when I go so I can catch up hahaâ€Ś) I got my very first one 3yrs ago, and was addicted ever since. I have 11 now. I always imagined myself designing my own tattoos. Then I finally realized---Hey leave it to the professionals! Im myself a graphic designer and an art director by trade-so I very much understand the concept of respecting the artist and their craft. For starters I wanted so many tats I didn't know where to begin! I had at least 15 different pieces of art in mind, and I couldn't decide on which one was the most important or where to put it. It was almost like I put too much thought into it! Until one day when I just said F*** it lets go! I got my first ink done in Hawaii. I had decided on a tattoo style at least, the traditional Sailor Jerry style (americana), so Hawaii felt like a special place to get it started (thatâ€™s where Sailor Jerry settled in the 1930's)
until I was 31yrs old (so 3 years ago)
So you was a late starter, but you have some good ink to make up for the time, What do your family think of your ink?
Early on in Sweden I got very inspired from reading my grandmothers 1950's magazines. Later on in Art school my passion was definitely old school pinup girl posters, sailor tattoos, rockabilly and vintage/retro art in general. I feel like its something that I will never grow tired on. Hence my tattoo style of choice.
What made you start getting tattoos? I LOVE the way they look. So do we, lol i see them as a permanent extension of my personality. CC shines through EVEN without me opening my big mouth. and I love that I have all these little stories and memories on my body. Oh and let me not get started on how much I love dudes with tats hahahaa
Lol, we have lots of them for you, when did you get your first peice of work? I started getting tattoos very late. Did not get my first one
My mom hates them. Tattoos are for gangsters, criminals and motorcycle gang members specifically (We had a big Hells Angles chapter in my hometown of Helsingborg, Sweden) And what will the neighbors think?! (uhm mom we don't even live in the same country anymore!) Lol, what about dad? Dad gets really mad for 2min then he is over it ... I think he is just like-well she can always put a long-sleeved shirt on, problem fixed. Mom wants to do a tattoo intervention. I mean its not like I got Drake tattooed on my forehead. Lol, that tattoo is fucking crazy All of my ink has very thoughtful placement and meaning behind them.
Your ink is nice so what Advice Would You Give? Live, laugh & love. Repeat. Work hard so you can play hard. STAY GOLD. -Then add whiskey hahahaha sound like a good way to live
MEMBERS PAGES i know it may oundé but I try my best to live by those words.
What are you going to get done next? My tattoo artist (Daniel Cotte) has finally successfully persuaded me to get a dragon tattooed on my right thigh, to compliment the tiger I have climbing up the left side of my body. It will be pretty big, so I may get something else smaller before that. Dont go small go big and bold like the tiger, what do you
think of paperchasers ink magazine so far? Great mag! Thank you Love the ink and the people that you choose to feature. I get a very good vibe from it and would love to be a part of it.
ell you are lol and we love to show your ink again, How many tattoos have you got so far? 11 and going :)
Have you been in any other magazines?
“Mom wants to do a tattoo intervention. I mean its not like I got Drake name tattooed on my forehead”
No. I just decided this year to take some professional shots of my ink. I recently submitted the pics to different websites, to see what kind of a response I would get. You where one of the first that contacted me. We are sure that you will get into some more magazines when they see this,lol, Who is your best
tattoo artist? Daniel Cotte. Of course! He is the guy who does all my ink. hats your favourite tattoo shop? North Star Tattoo NYC. The shop where I get all my Tattoos in lower east side manhattan, New York City. Its super dope, staff very friendly and professional, great vibes in there all day every day. Thank you cc, we are sure you will get you back in the magazine soon.
when did you get your first piece of work? I got my first tattoo June 2002. I end up getting my first name Patrick big on my stomach. That was a crazy idea because the stomach hurts the worst, but I took it like a champ and everybody loved it. what do your family think of your ink? My family loves my ink but everytime I get a new one they tell me not to get another one lol. What Advice Would You Give? If you are looking to get a tattoo on your body make sure its what you want and that it compliments your body. So make sure it enhances your look and not take away from it. what are you going to get done next? I haven't touch my back yet. Everybody is wondering what i'm going to get next I don't know but its going to be big and unique. My next tattoo though is going to be a whole sleeve getting done by my new tattoo artist Tone Rone. what do you think of paperchasers ink magazine? I love ink and entrepreneurs and you guys represent both. So I love what your doing. Thank you so how many tattoos have you got? Well I don't call them tattoos I have art pieces on me and how many I have are 16 pieces and 5 of them are very large. I don't really invest in small pieces I go big or go Home. That's what we say
i girls, tell us about yourselfs Nandi: Me, I'm very free spirited and I like to stand out, being a twin I've always stood out but even when I'm walking alone its my look and my goofiness and my genuine friendliness towards pretty much everyone that setsme apart from your average...and then of course my tattoos set it all off.
MEMBERS PAGES We have worked with several photographers together, and are hopeful that we will succeed in the industry. What made you start getting tattoos?

I'm Lily Stark, a tattooed model from central England. I got into modelling around 6yrs ago and love it! My favourite things to do are walking around in latex, pouting for pinup and having naked fun with erotic and artistic nude. During my time in modelling I've walked catwalks, danced in music videos, gotten into magazines, played with snakes, been on some stunning sets and had a pretty awesome time the whole way. But that's not the end of it! This year sees me starting my own vlogs on YouTube, where each week I have a chat and show off my tattoos.
What made you start getting tattoos? I had always wanted a tattoo and a lot of my friends all had a bit of something on them so one day when the opportunity arose I decided to go for it! From then onwards I've never looked back and love having tattoos of things that make me happy. When did you get your first piece of work? I was 19 and it was at some place above a hairdressers, not the best choice looking back but I've learned since! What do your family think of your ink? My family are fine with it, they know it makes me happy and that I'm not doing anything that would hurt me so they just go with it. My mum and sister have since both got little pieces on them. What Advice Would You Give? Look into the tattooist before you go and have one, don't let some random person do it because it is cheap. Tattooing is an art and not a fashion
statement. What are you going to get done next? Right now I am getting my sleeves finished and then I'm going to get a thigh piece started to do with the other love in my life, Marvel comics. What do you think of paperchasers ink magazine? I think it is a great way for people to see the different sides of the tattoo world as well as a good way for people like me to connect with others How many tattoos have you got? Too many to count now really lol! The closest I can tell you is that I have 8 pieces on me so far. Have you been in any other magazines? I've been in a few and this year I am planning to increase that number, starting with Paperchase Ink
I am originally from Alpharetta, GA and moved to North Carolina when I enlisted in the Marine Corps. When I am not rocking some cammies, I teach Preschool. I am currently in the process of finishing my B.A. in English so I can pursue a job teaching high school English. Some of my hobbies include snowboarding, rock climbing, lounging, cooking and of course getting tattooed. I got my first tattoo when I was 16 and haven't looked back since!
what got you into tattoos? I've always had a passion for art, even when I was a kid. My sister was the first person I ever really knew who had tattoos and I guess you could say I was introduced to them by her.
You need to thank her lol, when did you start getting ink? I got my first tattoo when I was 16, by some dude who apparently had broken out of prison and was giving out cheap tattoos to teens. Good idea, right?
Not sure, thats sounds fucked up.lol so what happened next? Well, I decided I wanted some tribals on my shoulders and a week later was sportin' some "sick ink." A year or so went by and I enlisted in the Marine Corps. I got my next tattoo, which was a "moto" tattoo on my leg. From that point on I really started loving tattoos and knew I wanted to get more, I just didn't know what I wanted yet.
Its like that, so when did you start working on your back?
down my leg." A few days later he had the outline drawn up and here I am now with a giant back piece!
We love it, what do you think of paperchasers ink magazine? I think it's great that there are people who appreciate ink in other countries and that there are awesome magazines like Paperchasers Ink to support them!
thank you, so what was the last tattoo that you got done? The last tattoo I got done was my back piece. I deployed so I had to temporarily hold off on getting tatted.
what are you going to get done next? Over a three year time period I thought of everything I loved including pinup girls, horror flicks, haunted houses so on and so forth. I walked into Bombs Away and the first person there to greet me was Brandon. I said,"Here's a list of what I want. I want it to be a complete back piece wrapping around my ribs and
I will be finishing my back piece completely. There are still some spots such as on my ribs that need to be finished. Its going to look dope when its all done,
what shop and artists do you get your ink from? My work is done by Brandon Seay at Bombs Away in Jacksonville, NC. thanks for talking with us and we cant wait to see your new ink, one love
SPARKS Whats good mel, when did you start getting tattoos? My first Tattoo I tried to get done when I was 13 in Savannah,Ga. Lol, WTF The shop owner thought it was cool that I came to ask but I was under age. After that I waited until my 18th b-day and got my daughters name on me. Once I got that done I Knew I wanted More... What do your family think of your ink? I'm the only one in my German Family who has this amount of Ink, they do not agree to all Tattoos but they see my passion which makes them happy. My Mom is very supportive and as excited as I am Every time I get more Ink. At lest your mum is on your side.. We see that you like weed. Lol, as your ink shows.
