Here’s an outtake from a recent shoot that we did with the big homie David aka Compton Dave.
With a collection of tattoos from the industries most well-respected and world-renowned tattoo artists, David’s body has long been a legendary canvas of inspiration for art and tattoo enthusiasts all around the globe. That said, it comes as no surprise that he is also the ambassador and co-executive producer for the upcoming move Tattoo Nation – and I was honored to have been invited for a private screening. After watching the movie, the first thing I can tell you is that it’s a moving cinematic creation which digs deep into the historic roots of black and grey tattoos. The piece definitely has plenty to offer and it’s sure to educate rookies as well as seasoned vets in the game. Even better is the fact that the movie pays homage to the OG’s who laid the foundation for not only a culture, but also a billion dollar lifestyle which revolves around art, expression and individualism.
