“An artist is someone who produces things that people don’t need to have but that he — for some reason — thinks it would be a good idea to give them,” opined the late American pop artist Andy Warhol. Artists know, even if we don’t know, what we want — maybe what we need. In the second part of my series on tattoo artists, we met Christian Masot, owner and artist working out of Silk City Tattoo in Hawthorne, NJ. Christian had the amazing good fortune to have apprenticed with two of the most acclaimed tattoo artists — Joey Tattoo and Mario Barth! How he came to work with both Joey and Mario is something you’ll learn when you listen to the complete interview. You’ll also find out that Christian is a multi-talented artist who is a painter and photographer as well as an accomplished and award-winning tattoo artist. To further pursue and share his art, he opened the Blackbird Gallery and Art Studio in Jersey City. Definitely check it out next time you’re in the area and discover if you possess the soul of an artist like Christian has.
