Here’s the official first blog to kick of the new website, now titled www.futuretellertattoo.com featuring the artwork and tattoos of myself, Gifford Kasen. First of all, thanks for stopping by. I’m looking forward to a very busy and productive 2011, and already have a handful of exciting projects in the tattoo world and otherwise that I’m excited to show off.
Speaking of new projects, I recommend everyone that has a chance to pick up the new book “Cranial Visions” from Memento publishing. It’s an art book devoted to the artistic interpretation of skulls. I have a few pieces in it, and I must say it’s a very well put together book showcasing some of the best talent in and out of the tattoo world right now.
In other news I’m still based out of Chicago, and still working at Skin Abrasions Tattoo in Oak Park, just west of the city. I’ll also be traveling quite often again this year starting with Austin this first weekend of Jan. Check back for an updated travel schedule soon.
With the end of 2010 I wrapped up a number of longer term projects, and am now looking for some fresh skin for February and March to start on. So if you’ve been waiting to get a piece tattooed by me, now’s an excellent time. As always, I’d really like to sink my teeth into some new Biomechanical themed tattoos, but really there’s alot out there that peaks my interest and I could have fun with. Thanks for reading, and check back often, lots more updates coming soon!
