With over 30,000 tattoo shops in the U.S. alone and more than a quarter of a million men and women tattoo artists, tattooing in one of the world’s most vibrate and ever-increasing businesses. Upwards of 40 percent of the population over 18 is tattooed (equally men and women). Once reserved for those of unfavorable status, tattoos are emerging on the bodies of the professional elite.
The popularity of tattoos shows no signs of slowing down. Recently, Huffington Post listed “10 Surprisingly Recession Proof Industries.”
Bob Baxter is an author, lecturer, media personality and, for over fourteen years, editor in chief of SKIN&INK magazine, a publication reaching nearly three million international readers per month. Baxter guided the publication to a Folio Magazine Editorial Excellence Award, making it America’s most respected and educational body art publication. He currently edits and writes the www.tattooroadtrip.com Daily Blog and a weekly, front-page blog, “Tattoo Chronicles,”
Mary Gardner, a professional artist, musician, mother of two sons and director of advertising for Skin&Ink for over five years, is the driving force behind www.tattooroadtrip.com. Seeing a need for the regional advertiser, especially those who are looking start or build their businesses, Gardner has created a website that connects readers with products in ways that appeal to the artistic and creative tattoo community, as well as those trying to participate in this vast marketplace.
Tattooroadtrip.com aims to be the ultimate website for the tattoo industry by including daily updates via “Baxter’s Blog” which promotes and exposes new and established artists who are making a contribution to the business. It also suggests referrals to tattoo shops, hotels and eateries within specific locations. And it hosts interviews with the leading contributors and provides reviews on up-and-coming artist. Readers are encouraged to interact with website by responding to polls, leaving feedback and submitting ideas.
With the dwindling economy showing few signs of growth and the tattoo industry showing no signs of slowing down, an excellent option is to join Tattoo Road Trip on the road to success.
