SILENT TATTOOS: INTERVIEW WITH ADAM SAGE
"I suppose you are what you find yourself doing with most of your time right? So I must be a tattoo artist" — British tattooer Adam Sage looks at his craft with a share of rhetoric, and at every work done - through the depth of personal criticism. Perhaps that is why he chose a different creative path: "silent" tattoos without the use of electricity, the motives of which are inspired by the world culture of past centuries and the charm of the industrial era. Adam's "tradition" is devoid of haste and noise, and it has no purpose to catch the eye with flashy brightness. His tattoos adorn the wearer's body with smooth lines and harsh textures.
Russian non electric tattoer Ivan Sabakin talked with Adam Sage about tattooing as a ritual of two, his hometown, self-tattooing, bike rides and the art of printing, which left a serious imprint on his entire art.
