READERS INTERVIEW: ALEX CANVAS
who is Alex Canvas?
Alex Canvas is a determined upcoming tattoo model from Memphis, TN
how many tattoos do you have far, you have a lot so its kind of hard to count?
That’s definitely a fact! I have quite a few and to be honest with you I have never tried to count my tattoos and at this point even if I tried I would be very unsuccessful due to more than 70% of them are behind me where I obviously cant see (back, butt, legs)
what made you go for getting your booty tattooed?
At this time I had begin to start getting stretch marks on several areas of my body mainly on my butt and I didn’t like that but I loved tattoos so I turned something that was distasteful to me into something that I Loved! ART
what made you start getting inked?
I was in High school when the idea was first introduced to me from close friends who had just went and got a couple of small tattoos on the previous weekend.
what tattoo artists do you go to?
I have went to a couple of artists and I rather not mentioned their names because the suppose to be art work that they produced on my skin turned out to be a nightmare! My Tattoo artist is Deunte Crossley who is located in my Hometown Memphis, TN! He is one of the most dopiest, talented, and gentle artist that I have ever experienced, met, or seen in my 27 years of living!
''people of all different colors, shapes, backgrounds, and ages to not only the opportunity to display their art but to tell their story and that to me means the world to me! I look forward to continue working with them and establishing relationships!''
which one of your tattoos do you like the most?
I love The back of both of my legs even though it hurt like hell getting them tatted!
what do you think of Paperchasers Ink - magazine?
This would be my first encounter with Paperchasers Ink but so far what I have seen is that the they give people of all different colors, shapes, backgrounds, and ages to not only the opportunity to display their art but to tell their story and that to me means the world to me! I look forward to continue working with them and establishing relationships!
how do you deal with the pain when getting tattooed?
I put on my ear phones, blast them as loud as they can go and mentally take my mind out of the current painful mind state to a peaceful dream vacation spot.
tell us something about yourself that people may not know about you?
I’m a homebody that enjoys the simple things in life such as watching tv and fishing! Yes, I SAID FISHING!
