Inked Out NJ

June
6th 2012

Gil Monte7139 22 Inked Out NJ

Visiting Inked Out New Jersey was like walking through a hall of legends. Every few feet, the show’s ten thousand attendees encountered the most celebrated, historic figures in tattooing today from across the world. Looking to the left, there was Mark Mahoney of the Shamrock Social Club tattooing just feet away from where the infamous Crazy Philadelphia Eddie signed books and made small talk. Bowery Stan Moskowitz tattooed further down the line, telling stories, surrounded by his family. To the right, Gill Montie worked and joked over the buzzing of his tattoo gun not far from where Peter and Petelo Suluape from Samoa and Horitoshi I of Japan exhibited their traditional styles of tattooing, drawing considerable crowds. Veteran tattooers, up-and-comers, long-time collectors and the uninitiated alike converged upon the Meadowlands in Secaucus, NJ, turning the expo center into a three-day-long party and an exhibition of the best work tattooing has to offer.
