Inked Magazine: Freddy Corbin

The November issue of Inked Magazine features a multi page piece I shot of Oakland tattoo artist Freddy Corbin (not without incident, see below) for the “Icons” section. This may not be the most timeliest piece of news but hey, it was a fairly busy month. Mr. Corbin also makes an appearance in the season finale of Sons Of Anarchy which airs this week on FX. SOA is soap opera filled with guns, snitches, politics, and thugs. Freddy is too nice for any of those parlor games so I look forward to seeing his cameo.

On a side note, Freddy “collects” tattoos from his friends who are not tattoo artists. Would you do that for friendship? Inked also listed me as a contributor in the November issue which is still on the shelves until December 15th.

  1. Jay!!! Again, I looooved this spread in Inked! It was fabulous and I was excited when it came in the mail to see your work!!! Great job Jay!

  2. Thanks everyone for the props.

    Joe – I tried to remind myself how funny that blown flash tube was when I had to buy a new one for $120. At least I didn’t drop a lens. That would have put me in stitches from the laughter.

  3. Freddy Corbin is really a tattoo legend. I love this portrait. He’s my laptop wallpaper now!

  4. Thanks Michael. I recently found out this portrait is being painted by an artist for a gallery show (she asked for permission first). Glad you dig the original. Freddy is a great guy.
