“Sean Hughes, the founder of Obscure Ink Magazine, was seeking help from an experienced PR & Marketing professional,”
Her experience and loyalty to the magazine from the outset, were the key factors in Hughes’ decision to increase Rose’s role with the publication.
“Art absolutely fascinates me and over the years, I've come to appreciate the work of tattoo artists,” said Rose.
When looking for stories to publish, Rose emphasized the importance of the artists being talented and meeting industry standards in tattoo safety and practices. She also had something interesting to say about the responsibilities of writers.
“Everyone has a story to tell and it’s typically our job as professionals to help tell it. As writers, we have to be capable of making a brown paper bag sound interesting if need be.”
Rose also mentioned that she looks for people with stories that are “engaging, unique, and eternal”, but yet believes it’s the job of the writer to bring it all together. With prior work in journalism and public relations, no doubt this position suits her perfectly.
Obscure Ink Magazine is currently sold online, but Rose has great optimism and hope for the magazine to be sold throughout the country and abroad.
“My goal is for the magazine to be represented in shops all over the world and for us to eventually become a monthly publication.”
With support from the tattoo community and marketing representation by Laurus Rose PR, there is no doubt this magazine will continue to grow. Their first magazine is expected to hit shelves July 2014.
