Stizzo

We jumped on the chance to have Alboy interview Stizzo when he went to do a guest spot at Cloak and Dagger, London, after the London Tattoo Convention. Renowned the world over for his style, we couldn't miss such an opportunity. It was great to find out more about his background and how his style developed.

Smug One

Every issue we try and do a feature on a crossover art form, this time, I wanted to look at Graffiti. I have been a personal fan of the work of Smug One since I was first introduced to it at the “See No Evil” festival in Bristol a few years ago. He had painted a guy trying to catch his teeth as they came out of his mouth; I had never seen something so realistic of that quality, and so I began to follow his work. A few months back I had seen that he had painted the guys up a Custom Inc. in Glasgow, so I got in touch with Billy to see if he could put something together for me to publish in the magazine. Luckily he agreed, so here it is.

Sacred Electric Paint Night

I have followed Sway’s work for a while now and have not seen anyone posting as many paintings as this guy; it seems he has an endless supply.

Tutti Serra

I first met Tutti when he did our Xam interview for issue one, and after that, I began to become more and more interested in his work. This led me towards Black Garden, which is - in my opinion - one of the best up and coming studios in the UK. There are very few new studios that can boast the talent that Black Garden do and it was great to have Tutti’s fellow tattooist and colleague Rodrigo conducting the interview as I got a real insight into how they got to where they are today.

Jelle And Pedro Soos

Pedro SOOS & Jelle SOOS

Pedro SOOS and Jelle SOOS are close friends but they're not related; so why the SOOS suffix? Nine Mag met up with the pair at Liverpool Tattoo Convention to discuss their work, their influences, their individual creative journeys, the power of MySpace and their not-so-secret, secret society.
