Tips on Getting Brooklyn Tattoos You’ll Love

Getting a tattoo is a big decision. Especially if we are talking about your fist one. Because you are stuck with it for life (yes, you can laser remove it later, but that is way more painful and expensive than getting a tattoo), you want to make a good choice. Here are some great tips on getting the tattoo you love when in Brooklyn.

Think it through 

Don’t rush it. I mean it, do not ever make a hasty decision when thinking about getting tattooed. Don’t even think about getting one while drunk, because you might regret it the next day. So, take your time. No one is rushing you; you have all the time in the world to choose your perfect design. And another piece of advice – do not get tattooed while young and never ink your boyfriend’s or girlfriend’s name.

Find the perfect idea

The process of finding the perfect tattoo can be lengthy, especially if you do not have something specific in mind. Some know that they want dragons, others the picture of their favorite pet or flowers. Even then, when you know what you want, you should take your time and do your research. Let’s say, for example, that you want to get a rose. Because there are so many stages of a rose, you should look up all of them and see which one suits you best. Don’t forget about the color – although red is the most frequent choice, you might want to go with pink, yellow or even blue. You will get some good advice on finding the perfect tattoo idea right here: https://tatring.com/getting-tattooed/TattooAdvice-2

The size always matters

The size of the tattoo is also very important and no one can decide that other than you. Think about how big you want it to be. If you do not want it to stand out so much, go for a small one. Do not exaggerate and do not just imagine how it will look like. Find a drawing you like and print it to see how it looks like on your body.

Where do you want it? 

After size, there’s placement. It’s not the same if you get your tattoo on your back (which will be covered most of the time) or your wrist. How visible do you want it to be? Think about other aspects such as your job – in cases such as teaching, for example, tattoos can be frowned upon. Also, the pain level when getting a tattoo varies depending on the area.

Find the perfect Brooklyn tattoo artist for you

Once you’ve decided that you really want a tattoo, you must start searching for a good artist. You do not want it to be made by an artist friend who does not have any experience in the field – no matter how nice of you that would be, remember that your tattoo will stick with you forever. This is why you need the best tattoo artist in town. Even if you are not from Brooklyn, you can travel there to check out tattoo shops like Hand of Glory Tattoo. You need an experienced artist, open to answer all your questions.

This is why you should first think about booking an appointment with the artist. Tell him about your vision and if you have only some sketches, he might help you get the drawing done. He will help you with any questions tattoo and pricing-related, but it is not his job to choose the final variant of the tattoo. That is totally up to you.

Take good care of your new tattoo 

When you leave the tattoo shop, make sure to ask for some tending advice. To heal properly, a tattoo must be taken good care of. You should neither expose the tattoo to sun rays nor bathe while it is still healing. You can also read some more on the subject here. It’s important to know how to attend to your tattoo from the very beginning. If you believe that it is not healing properly, you can revisit your tattoo artist to get his opinion on the matter, but if you follow his advice and take good care, everything should be alright. It’s time to enjoy your new tattoo!

Thank God It’s Christmas

Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor create special film to send Christmas message to fans.

Queen icons Brian May and Roger Taylor today posted their personal Christmas messages to fans worldwide with the gift of a new specially created animation film for the band’s “Thank God It’s Christmas” track originally released in November 1984.

Brian and Roger’s Christmas messages can be seen HERE × HERE.

“Thank God It’s Christmas” was a rare song writing collaboration between Roger and Brian. The song spent six weeks in the UK charts over the Christmas/New Year period 1984/1985. It enjoyed a second lease of life Christmas 1995 coupled with the hit single “A Winter’s Tale” from the Made In Heaven album. Here the track receives a fully animated treatment.

The concept for this new animated film came directly from Brian and Roger who explain their thoughts behind it with Roger saying, “Ironically, Christmas tends to be such a stressful time for so many of us. So many emotions, joyful memories of past Christmas’ as delighted children and responsible adults / parents. It’s just a great relief when it finally happens.”

Brian adds, “The video goes a little further by including a subtle reminder that we as humans now need to feel a responsibility for the welfare of ALL creatures on Earth – not just for our own benefit, and that of our grandchildren, but out of respect for the rights of the animals themselves.”

Working with Brian and Roger, the film was directed & animated on their behalf by Justin Moon and executive produced by Drew Gleason for production company °1824. The new “Thank God It’s Christmas” film is available to enjoy in two versions:

2020 ROLLS-ROYCE CULLINAN

By Vaughn Lowery

As of late, 360 MAGAZINE had an opportunity to glide through the five Burroughs of NYC in an all-terrain super-luxury SUV during the Holiday Season.

Unassuming and illustrious are the best words to describe the 2020 Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV. Worth its weight in gold! Approximately priced around $394,275, it’s the most expensive off-roader in it’s class and by far the most luxurious in the world.

Design

Handcrafted from the soil up, every nook and cranny has the Rolls-Royce stamp of approval. The overall shell of the vehicle is sleek and seamless. Every pillar and appointment makes perfect sense. Outside, the frontfasia is bodacious with integrated laser headlights and a pronounced grill. The Spirit of Ecstasy (SoE) sits on the hood and is retracts at a moment’s notice. 22″ inch part polished wheels and tires have a weighted emblem in the middle so as the car rolls (no wordplay intended) it stays center so there’s no mistaking who fabricated this monster. Swooping lines lead towards the back wisease. At first glance, it’s profile is somewhat reminiscent of an Range Rover Autobiography. On the sides, are LED parking lights. Boxy, beautiful yet masculine. At the rear, are gem-like light fixtures with turning signals. The boot has a clamshell tailgate which opens up and out with dual doors.

Push the button on the door knob to enter. Right before you enter the cabin, you are greeted by illunlminated ‘Cullinan’ treadplates alongside of lambswool floor mats. Even if the interior lights aren’t on, the Charles Blue interior leather seats are just as magnetic as Angelina Jolie’s electric eyes. One will feel like they’re swimming in Bali at Geger Beach wrapped by a navy blue beach towel in leather. Equally drowned by a sea of blue, the moonroof unveils the sky like a drophead, making the cabin feel more open and airy. Literally two to three people can promote their entire bodies out of the dual panel sunroof. It’s definitely one of the largest in its segment hands-down. Per usual, all of the appointments are wrapped in leather and stainless steel as easily as every headrest is embossed by SoE. Classic dials throughout and an analog clock sits on the dashboard with the same kind of realness as Big Ben in London.

Continue along to the back seats, the same luxurious integrity is apparent with large screens with trays which go flush. Instead of a back panel window in the trunk space, it’s laid right on side of back passengers. All of the rear windows possess dark tempered glass fit for the likes of the Queen herself, Beyoncé. As we dropped a passenger off at the Hard Rock Hotel in Time Square, tons of bystanders huddled around to take pictures.

Technology

Once again, the BMW’s iDrive system is dominant in the infotainment unit. The knob toggles through various screens, but this season they have a concierge which makes it a tad easier to locate and designate a destination – similar in type to Lexus Enform. Eight different settings for driver/passenger massages – excellent way for a driver to refresh during a long road trip.

During these colder months, the steering, arm rests and seats are heated. And, if you haven’t received a formal crash course on your Cullinan, you can refer to the animated digital owner’s manual which can easily search many of its amenities. The custom Rolls-Royce signature audio system has tweeters, floor subwoofers and enough watts to make you thump like you’re at a rock concert.

Safety

With more bells than whistles, you won’t leave a lane or come close to a dinging anything on this vehicle. The over the head 360 panoramic backup cam gives you a spaceage Jetson POV of what’s around the vehicle at all times. Night vision with heat detectors can help you navigate through woodsy areas without hitting a deer. In the urban center, we were alerted while behind a school bus – cameras came about when pedestrians accosted the vehicle’s walk around radius. Moreover, with a reinforced steel skeleton and airbags virtually for every piece of your body, you’re pretty safe in this vehicle.

Performance

Weighing in at around 5,863 lbs, this V12 turbo is more than powerful. With 570 HP and 627 pound-ft of torque, this SUV plows. Of course, the AWD allows you to claw corners and steering provides you with turning capabilities as if you’re in a sportscar. We pounded the asphalt and it felt like we could conquer 0-60 mph in less than 4.9 minutes while we entered the Garden State Parkway. There’s a reason why RR makes airplane engines because we felt like we were flying! Mentioning mpg makes no sense if you’re purchasing an automotive beast like this one – but here you go – 12 city / 20 highway.

Conclusion

If you’re in the market to floss and experience what many will never – this car should make it onto your bucket list. Out of all the Rolls-Royce tribe, this is the most practical as you can apply it for everyday use as well as a red carpet experience.

Pre-order.

DENZEL CURRY × GLASS ANIMALS


Hot off the heels of releasing their recent collaboration “Tokyo Drifting” feat. Denzel Curry, Glass Animals drops the video for their latest single today. “Tokyo Drifting” is part of the band’s Fresh Fruit series of collaborations. The video was directed by rubberband and shot in Yonkers, New York.
 
WATCH THE VIDEO FOR “TOKYO DRIFTING” HERE!
 
On the inspiration behind the video, rubberband says, “We were inspired by a variety of things: the handmade nature of Iza Genzken’s collage work, 90’s video games, 80’s comic books. We sort of filtered all this through the lens of the myth of the Minotaur. The video was shot in Yonkers at an abandoned Catholic school (I’m sure the church would be thrilled). We really wish the toilets had worked…”
They continue, saying, “Mostly, we just wanted to make something that felt different. Post was a lot like playing jazz, we experimented with a wide variety of different animation techniques and titling. In the end, Dave put a lot of trust in us and we are very grateful for that.”
 
The single has already received widespread critical acclaim from Billboard, The FADER, HYPEBEAST, Genius, E! News, Consequence Of Sound, HotNewHipHop and many more, with Billboard proclaiming, “Glass Animals are back, and in case you were wondering: they’ve “still got it”” and E! News hailing the song as “a sign of good things to come.”
 
Glass Animals is a British four-piece project led by singer, songwriter and producer Dave Bayley with his bandmates and childhood friends Joe Seaward, Ed Irwin-Singer and Drew Macfarlane. Their second album How To Be A Human Being was one of the most critically acclaimed and widely adored records of 2016 and went on to be nominated for the Mercury Album Of The Year Award in 2017. As well as producing both ZABA and How to be a Human Being, Dave has worked with a number of artists outside of the band, including 6lack, Khalid, Joey Bada$$, DJ Dahi, Flume and MorMor. 
 
Last month, Glass Animals played a surprise show at Oxford’s The Bullingdon, which (unsurprisingly) sold out in 37 seconds. Stay tuned for more live plans from Glass Animals in the new year…

DAVID STEPHEN JOHNSON, elliott Stares, 360 MAGAZINE

DAVID STEPHEN JOHNSON

Pittsburgh-born abstract painter, David Stephen Johnson’s love for the arts stretches back to the 1970s, when he shared a studio space in Chicago with a sculptor from the Chicago Art Institute. Since then, Johnson has been building his own body of work, inspired by the post-war abstract expressionists, and will be unveiling his latest series at the highly anticipated Spectrum Miami art fair to mark his inaugural appearance during Miami Art Week.               

Johnson was invited to exhibit his work by Michael Joseph, founder of ARTBLEND, the acclaimed South Florida based organization and one of the longest running gallery exhibitors at Spectrum Miami. Johnson will be presenting his most recent large scale canvas works from his Blue Series and Sono Series as part of this year’s ARTBLEND collective at booth 720 within the Mana Wynwood Convention Center, from Dec. 4 to Dec. 8. This will mark Johnson’s debut and inaugural solo exhibit during Miami Art Week.

“I’m very excited to be making my debut during Miami Art Week at Spectrum Miami in collaboration with ARTBLEND — one of South Florida’s most established galleries,” said David. “Painting is like breathing to me. I am pulled in, to the work, every day. The process is a physical act. I connect to my body and to myself in a sort of visceral dance. The act of painting is unmediated by thought. It starts with a simple stroke or mark that leads to the next one in a continuous flow. Possibility and uncertainty are inherent to my practice. Always a play between anxiety, apprehension and, sometimes, when I get lucky, exhilaration. My language is color. I work with acrylic, house paint, oil, pastels, and graphite, which I apply directly on to the surface and rework with a scraper, paper, and rarely, a brush.”

David Stephen Johnson was awarded a scholarship to college as a star quarterback,​ playing for South Dakota State, and later earned his BA in Business Administration at the University of Minnesota, Carlton School of Business. He fostered his love for art while developing a series of paintings for his first show at Riverside Gallery in Chicago.

While raising his family, David continued a successful career in advertising in both Miami and New York​ for the prestigious agency Lord, Geller, Federico, Einstein. He embraced his self-taught path in painting, building a deliberately unpublished body of work studying color and shape, partly influenced by post-war abstract expressionists. His natural athleticism and grace led him toward the great action painters, which informs his style and markmaking. In 2017 he retired from the business to pursue his passion for painting. He joined The Silvermine Art Center in Connecticut, ​a prestigious institute for the arts created in 1908 by the sculptor Solon Borglum. Since then, David has participated in several juried shows, expanding his work to large-scale canvases. He regularly collaborates with interior design firm Wowhaus,​ and other Greenwich area designers, for commission-based residential and commercial projects. In 2019, David had his first solo show at Southport Galleries in Connecticut.

Spectrum Miami and Red Dot Miami will take place Wednesday, Dec. 4 to Sunday, Dec. 8 at Mana Wynwood. Tickets for the Opening Night Preview are priced at $50 by purchasing online or $60 at the event. A General Admission 1-day Pass for Spectrum Miami and Red Dot Miami is $25 by purchasing online or $30 at the event.
