You don’t see a lot of people with tattooed noses and there is a very good reason for it—the pain is astronomical. For the this episode of Heavily Inked we sat down with Flipshades, one of the most colorful characters in the entire tattooing industry. We discussed his tattoo journey, the reason he blacked out one sleeve while lasering the other, his many explicit tattoos and much more.
Welcome to Heavily Inked. In our newest series, we’re going to speak one-on-one with tattoo collectors and artists about what it means to be a heavily inked person. We’ll get deep as we go through the motivations behind their tattoo choices, the way they’ve been treated in society and much more.
