Kelsey tattooed by Virginia-based artist Max Kuhn.

Max is a unique talent and Max does things his own way.

Setting up in an unremarkable hotel room near LAX airport, Max takes just a handful of appointments from clients he knows.  Max sets out everything he needs to do his work right there in the hotel room.  With the TV on mute, lo-fi music barely lifting the quiet, and vegan delivery food boxes in the trash can, its clear he makes this rented space his own for the few hours he is in town.

Kelsey's onto her third tattoo by Max so she knows how he works, and she took me along for the ride.  I really admired watching an artist at work in this unlikely place, and just as the early evening sun was setting through the window I couldn't resist grabbing a few frames.

I have read the Tattoo book by Max Kuhn and I found it to be an excellent resource. I have also studied a lot of other books on this topic, but this is the first book that I have ever read that actually taught me how to do it myself. I am willing to visit http://www.australian-writings.org/ website to get help in my research paper on time.
