JESS MASCETTI

These days, plenty of kids grow up aspiring to become tattoo artists, but during the eighties and early nineties this was seldom the case. Jess Mascetti first fell in love with tattooing around the time when the ban was lifted in NYC, although it took over a decade for all the pieces to finally fall into place after she began getting tattooed by her soon-to-be mentor, Josh Lord. We sat down with Mascetti to learn how she wound up becoming a world-renowned artist and what valuable lessons led her to where she is today.

MAT RULE

Some artists specialize in doing cartoon tattoos. Others have made black-and-grey realism their forte. Mat Rule is the rare artist who has mastered both. After falling in love with traditional and black-and-grey tattooing, he decided to combine the opposing genres to create an exceptionally unique signature style. His work literally pops off the skin and reminds us of movies like "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" and "Cool World" which brought cartoons into the real world. We sat down with Rule to learn how he came up with such a show-stopping style, which characters he loves tattooing most and much more.
