Kurt Fagerland CNN video

Kurt Fagerland has to be one of my favorite tattoo artists to follow since I discovered one of his pieces on F*ck Yeah Tattoos and it seems like his popularity has taken a very steady incline since I found him, but as much as I wish I could take credit for it I think his passion speaks for itself in this video:

I don’t talk about it too much but I love tattoos. I love people’s creativity in creating and placing them on the body as well as just the idea of permanent art on someone’s body. There are so few things in the world, decisions in the world that we must choose and never even get the chance to look back. Tattoos stay with you forever, they are a choice that you cannot take back but also no one can really take them from you either. I’m told I’m a passionate person by people that meet me and I think passion is what draws me to tattoos. Anywho…

I wrote this book. I’ve been trying to find the time to illustrate it. I am so close to finishing… But tattooing is taking up most of my spare time. Here is some of the progress so far. One of these days I’ll have it printed.

Love this style of art. It reminds me a little of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark and stuff by Roman Dirge (some of my favorites) but more in the style of Coraline.
