25TH ANNUAL MOTOR CITY TATTOO EXPO
BRIGHTON, MICHIGAN. FEBRUARY 28th - MARCH 1st, 2020.
LEATHERNECKS TATTOO BROOKLYN
The shop was opened in July of 2011, by tattoo artist Kenny K-bar and his partner Valerie Randazzo. Kenny K-bar, a former US Marine, has been an artist since he could hold a crayon! Kenny and Val's passion for art, tattoos and motivation to build a home for his talent are what built the shop nearly overnight.
FEATURED TATTOO COLLECTOR
In the business since 1992, Ronda Xanthos has been around the world, tattooing all manner of show biz celebrities, supermodels, circus freaks, and gangsters.
I am currently an apprentice at The Abyss Fine Art and Tattoo Studio in Long Beach, NY. I have been surrounded by different forms of art my whole life. I always knew I wanted art to be the center of my world, but never really understood how to make that possible.
It all started on the morning of June 22, 2017 in Durango, Colorado. Packed and ready to go. Clothes, food, camping gear and of course, tattoo equipment, all loaded on two wheels. The time had come for a new chapter.
You may remember Brenda Swan from the cover of Tattoo Revue Issue 180. That issue has since sold out and become a collector’s item, so she’s back for issue 185! We hope you enjoy the photos.
