J.P. from Vains of Jenna 'bout his tattoos
Here we are, back to Vains of Jenna. J.P. got some interesting stories for us about his tattoos. Here you can read about his own art-tallent and about Kat Von D who's been a good friend for years, check it out.
Tell me something about your first tattoo
JP: My first one was done in Rio De Janeiro when i was 18 years old and traveled around with 2 of my best friends, Its a Joker with cards and some typical rock n roll stuf around it like an 8 ball, stars and shit.
My other tattoos are from different places around the world and is basically done when i have had a really good time.
I have 2 small ones that i made in sweden, Its a bird and a skull with a banner that sais "Rocker" hehe.
Cool, I like tattoos as a reminder of a good time! Show me your favourite one
JP: well My fav is probably the one that Kat Von D did for me. She has been a long time fan and friend of the band. As a thank you to her for all the help i gave her a self portrait painting of her self. I got down to her studio "High Volage" and gave it to her. She loved it and asked me what i wanted tattooed right away. I told hger to do whatever she wanted as long as it said Vains Of Jenna on it. We sat down in her room and had a couple of beers & pizza and she started to skiss my tattoo. A couple of hours later I had my Vains Of Jenna tattoo done on my arm. Its also in her book HIGH VOLTAGE.
If I understand it well, you are an artist yourself? Can we see any of your work on the net or something?
JP: Yes I have some of my work on my myspace page "WHITE LINE" http://www.myspace.com/jpwhiteart
-- Go check it out people! nice work if you ask me.. --
JP: I also designed a Vains of Jenna-tattoo for Jacki, which is now on his arm:
And what was your last tattoo?
JP: I did another on just a couple of days ago at a Venue in Germany called the Paunchy Cats in Lichtenfels. My good friend Sebastian (Owner) hooked me up with an amazing artist called Andy ( Andy's website). He made me two old school roses for free right at the venue.
So, which one do you remember as the most painfull?
JP: I would say the last one on the inside of the biceps.
Did you ever get tattood when you were waisted? :)
JP: Not really wasted but I have had a couple of beers while laying there ;)
