Sperry Shoe Tattoos: Q&A With Tattooer Dominic Vasquez
Wingtip: How similar is the process of tattooing shoes to tattooing skin?
Dominic Vasquez: It’s similar mostly because leather is essentially skin. Although the shoes won’t move or complain if it hurts, it’s still quite a challenge!
WT: We likened the Sperry shoe tattoos to art by Sailor Jerry. Is that accurate? Could you give some background on the designs you’ll be tattooing on shoes at the event?
DV: As far as what I will be tattooing at the event, I generally like to reference material that is older than Sailor Jerry. Not that Sailor Jerry is bad, but I like the look of earlier American tattooing. I can always rely on influence by Christian warlock, Owen Jensen, Tom Berg, and Milton Zeis. Not to mention, Ed Hardy is still one of the biggest influences on traditional American tattooing. Ed has had his hand in every major apex in modern tattooing, and he can still be found spreading his knowledge in the SF art scene.
