I’ve had the pleasure of photographing the incredibly talented Myke Chambers for a while now – I’ve photographed him for a few magazine features about him in magazines like “Inked”. Myke travels the world going to conventions and has worked in many shops around the country. So, it’s pretty exciting that he has recently settled in Philadelphia and opened a tattoo shop of his own called Seven Swords Tattoo Company, where he has hired some of the most talented tattoo artists in the area. There was a feature being done on this amazing shop and I was lucky enough to be the one to shoot them for the magazine. I always love photographing Myke and it was an absolute treat to photograph all of these talented artists. Mostly because they had me laughing the whole time, but also because Philadelphia tattoo artists are among the most beautiful, interesting and fun subjects to shoot, and this group was no exception. They are gracious and kind, on top of being some of the best tattooers in the country. And, truly, these people are beautiful. I love how these photos look. Unfortunately, I didn’t do any interviews with them so that you can get a look at who they are as people rather than just at their photos, because I love filling out the whole picture and giving you some examples of their work too. Should I do some interviews with these people?
You can often find Myke tattooing live here which is really interesting to watch.
I’m also including the links to their online portfolios so that you can check out their artwork. Many of them book a few months out so get in touch with them now to get on their schedules this year.
