Welcome to Nine Mag.
An online magazine and store for tattoo artists and enthusiasts.
Here at Nine mag, we've known Mitch Allenden and Rich Wells for quite a few years. They've both forged a path in tattooing with bold and striking work. They recently came together to open the private Dock Street tattoo in Leeds so it seemed a perfect chance to get their thoughts on their careers so far.
Big Meas is one of the best lettering artists out there. Starting in graffiti and transitioning into tattooing, he's forged a huge identity and reputation, showing the world how far you can take a part of the craft that many take for granted. Chances are, you have one of his lettering guides in your studio for reference. We had a quick chat with the man behind the lettering.
It’s taken a while, but it is finally here! This interview with David Corden has taken close to a year to get into the magazine and has definitely proven to be the biggest challenge. The interview itself began after Tattoo Tea Party at around midnight. David and I had just started when I realised that the batteries had died on the Dictaphone. After a frantic jog to the late night shop, we were back in business. But the fun didn’t end there.
