The most recent Tattoo Age series features the amazing Thom deVita. Thom is an all-around extraordinary artist and tattooing is only one of the many ways that he expresses himself. He has been tattooing for almost 50 years, dating back to when tattooing was illegal in New York City’s Lower East Side. Thom is legendary for his innovative style during the mid-60’s to his veteran influences in the present time.
Although he has been tattooing for nearly half a century, very little is recorded nor known about him. Therefore, it is a real treat that Vice provided us with this awesome series on Thom and his story. You will hear from a variety of renowned artists such as Ed Hardy, Nick Bubash, Clayton Patterson, Scott Harrison, Angelo Scotto, John Wyatt, Robert Ryan, and Bubba Reeves.
” He wasn’t just a tattoo artist, he was an artist that tattoos…”
