Samuel do you use any of your tats for performance?

No. My tats are far too personal to me to use them in performance. Not that there is anything convtraversial about my tats or anything wrong with using tats during performance, I just don't want to do that myself.

I do use a tat in my performance. It is a 2 of spades and I use it as a revelation. It gets great reactions, and I would love to read more ideas on how to use tats. Revelations are good, but I wish more could be done... I really want to work out a transformation, but no idea how to do it.
Spur on some more conversation about it.

By the way, Penn and Teller do an effect with a "Blood tattoo" in one of their books. that's where I got the idea... any other ideas in print?

I have a few tattoos. One is a celtic dragon which I use occasionally with a rune stone effect. Basically it's the old ashes on the arm with a selected rune stone design appearing in the middle of the tattoo. It's a nice bizarre piece when I'm with the right crowd.

I thought Tattoo was a pretty good performer being a little person and all. Some of the things Mr. Roark made him do were quite funny. And every episode when he yelled "The Plane, the plane!" was hilarious. I don't know if he was into mentalism though, although many little people have well defined intuitions, especially when they're on elevators.

Andrew Gerard incorporates his tattoo in his "Deja Vu" effect.

I do not think that there is anything wrong with a performer having tattoos. It might even help you stand out! If you have some visible tattoos that the majority might find offensive, well that's a different story.

I am very heavily tat2ed including my hands and neck. I was a professional tat2rtist for over 20 years. People take me as they find me. I don't consider my artwork offensive.
An old tattooist's saying, "People with tattoos never complain about people without tattoos".

There was a thread about this a while back:
