If anyone wanted to book a appointment with Big Gus here is his info from his blog about appointments :) Booking Appointments With Me
I am so grateful for all the support I have received from my fans of Tattoo Nightmares i am beyond gretafull.
I have been so fortunate to have an amazing clientele, for many years I have had a one to two year waiting list for many years but Since the first season of TATTOO NIGHTMARES aired, many new names have been added onto that list for tattoo work,with the airing of TATTOO NIGHTMARES my list is growing bigger everyday so please be patient.
There are many questions that are being asked, that hopefully I can help answer:
My shop is ART JUNKIES TATTOO hesperia ca
My current hourly rate is $200 for non cover up work, ”Cover UP” Work is 250 depending on how difficult the work may be however that may change in the future.
My regular tattoo appointment email email@example.com,I will not respond to cover up work on this email. My Cover Up appointment email for TATTOO NIGHTMARES firstname.lastname@example.org allow 1-2 weeks for response.
Please email photos in multiple angles of your ink that you want covered up, try to show me as much of area as possible, this is needed to see if i am even able to do cover up.
For all media,news,interviews,publications with me please email me email@example.com allow 1-2 week for a response.
My email for tattoos at the many conventions i do a year is firstname.lastname@example.org allow 1-2 week for a response.
To purchase any of my Art or clothing you see on show or at conventions please visit my store on my website biggusink.com Due to my long waiting list I am unable to do any drawings for someone else to tattoo.
There are so many artist in so many different cities, it would be impossible for me to refer you to someone. Internet, social media, word of mouth and reviewing portfolios are the best ways to find and choose an artist.
I will post the conventions or guest spots I will be doing on my blog, shop website and FaceBook, so keep an eye out for those posts.You can link to all my social media sites via my website www.biggusink.com Tattoo Nightmare Shop is only used for Jasmine, Tommy Helm and I to work together and film. The filming is done in LA however, the shop is not where we each work on a daily basis. There is no phone number for the shop, again as it is only used for filming.
I do not work at Madison Tattoo Shoppe in North Hollywood, again the tattoo shop that I am partnered is in Hesperia, California and is called Art Junkies Tattoo (www.artjunkiestattoos.com ) If you want to be on the show, you must contact Spike Casting. My shop manager Robin or myself have no say in who gets chosen. Please go on www.spike.comfor info on story & tattoo cover up submissions. Please hit me up email@example.com@gmail.cominstead of facebook because this will help us keep track of every email much better if you have any other questions. We will NOT add anyone to the waiting list via the internet. You MUST email me to be put onto the waiting list for any tattoo work,or cover up tattoo work.
Thanks so much for understanding and we look forward to helping every one out! Please contact the shop 760-947-5538 ROBIN shop manager for any questions regarding tattoo work or media events,or anything i could have missed please allow 1-2 weeks for an email or phone message responses Thank you for reading!

"Story Telling is a lecture/ dialogue driven approach to sharing my artistic process for designing story telling images. The information is formatted in a way that artist can relate to and apply. The seminar covers everything from: meeting with clients and extracting important information, use of appropriate imagery and symbolism, use of proper materials and reference, to building a drawing through a step by step process. Along the way, I will share stories, inspirational artists I feel are worth noting, and touch down softly on the ethics within our industry (maybe not so softly). Art should be a fun and creative process and I try and create a learning environment that conveys this." -Gunnar
Two Hours for only $100 8-10pm Friday Oct. 21st.
Bring your sketchpad and pencil.

I was raised by a pack of cigarettes My favorite color is dark purple My favorite food is Wahoo’s fish tacos (There is a framed 8X10 photo of me on their wall) I have an 8 year old son I am Mom and Dad I can live out of a backpack for months I’m a princess I love to make people laugh I’m hairy like animal I think Abe Lincoln lied so much people talked shit behind his back and called him honest Abe I hate small dogs but enjoy hot dogs with sauerkraut I have a secret identity... I used to be a rapper, I got offered two record contracts I don’t lie I don’t have a filter My mind is always in the gutter I hate the heat but love summer because girls dress trampy I love love love the rain, it makes me smile I watch romantic comedies and feel warm and mushy throughout the film but then get angry that I’m alone at the end I could be a millionaire and miserable owning my families business but I chose to be happy doing what I love instead I brush my teeth with two toothbrushes at a time.
As a self taught tattoo artist Scott Grosjean has been tattooing since 2000. He had a desire to expand and refine his skills and began working at a shop in San Bernardino starting in 2004. To grow as an artist Scott needed to surround himself with other artist that had similar motivation so he could learn as much as possible. He knows the best way to advance artistically is to surround himself with people who challenge him daily. Over the years Scott worked with a number of amazing artists but never found a place to call home. Long from where he first started Scott continues to feel motivated, determined and driven to succeed. Having received an offer of a lifetime Scott has finally found his home.He can now be found at Art Junkies Tattoo Studio working along side some of the best artists in the industry. Scott feels that Art Junkies is his opportunity to take his career and art to the next level. For Scott the sky is the limit and he believes he can accomplish anything he puts his mind to.

Mario got a bit crazy with a blank pair of Havaianas. Inspired by Asian Pop Art Mario set down his tattoo machine to give an interesting twist to an otherwise usual pair of sandals. Check them out in this article from YRB Magazine.
