There are many reasons to get a tattoo—some of them being more common than others — such as honoring a loved one or commemorating an experience. The act of tattooing is not a one-sided experience; you have to consider the side of the artist.

HBO ran its eighth episode of “Vice News” last Friday. Last week’s mini documentary covered the skyrocketing fad of fast food in Saudi Arabia as well as the booming movie industry in Nigeria.
In addition to last week’s preview, I had the opportunity of interviewing “VICE” journalist Gianna Toboni over a video chat alongside several other university publications across the country. Within my interview, Toboni and I discussed a variety of topics, from the impact of President Trump's recent executive order to her thoughts on opponents of the transgender accessible bathrooms.
Readers of the previous edition of Weekly Ink will remember a gentleman by the name of Cartoon that I put in the spotlight. At the end of our interview, Cartoon was nice enough to put me in touch with the owner and manager of Made You Look Custom Tattoo. Tattoo artist JB is a soft-spoken intellectual who not only cares about pushing the tattooing industry forward, but providing a service that is one in a thousand. We met early Saturday morning and discussed everything from what differentiates a good shop from a great one, to how the industry of tattooing has evolved over the last 10 years.

The first episode of the fifth season of “VICE” on HBO kicks off with an hour-long in-depth analysis of regime-ruled Syria and the economic impacts at stake from decades of climate denial. The opening is well produced, and it's evident “VICE” has made good use of HBO’s budget. “VICE’s” correspondent Isobel Yeung provides a full spectrum of Syria’s social and political characteristics within her 30-minute segment.
Working out of Made You Look Custom Tattoos, located on East Washington Ave, is a humble, veteran artist named Jesus Reyes, otherwise known as “Cartoon.” He is the older brother of Albert Reyes, an artist previously featured on Weekly Ink who works out of Colt’s Timeless Tattoos. The brothers may share several traits, but don’t mistake them for being identical.
Albert Reyes was in the midst of a right bicep tattoo at Colt’s Timeless Tattoos when I asked to interview him last Tuesday evening. Albert initially struck me as intimidating, but after a few moments of conversation, I came to realize he was a welcoming and veteran artist. Between the buzzing of his gun and the calm, yet pained breathing of his client, we discussed everything from his journey as an artist to a ink session summing up to 20 hours.
A small, yet eager crowd gathered at The Frequency this past Wednesday for an evening of indie rock. Three acts, each with similar makeups, performed to a crowd of roughly 25 tame listeners.

Dream Police recently released their first album Hypnotized, and it is a physcadelic trip full of electronic riffs and strong bass, which propels this album into a place all its own.

With Winter & the Wolves covering topics of heartache, addiction and raw emotion it would appear the rapper would make for a serious interview. But over the phone Grieves was comical and engaging, bringing a sense of excitement and even mentioning Madison as a place of solace.
