ISSUE 21 PRESS RELEASE FROM THE URBAN INK OFFICES:
Paramus, NJ, August 3, 2011 – Urban Ink—the only tattoo magazine in the world that reps for the urban tattooed population—announced the release of their very special 21st issue. On the 15th anniversary of the untimely demise of Tupac Amaru Shakur, UI delivers a special spread dedicated to the fallen legendary hip-hop star, actor and poet.
During his short time with us, 2Pac inspired an entire generation—and UI linked up with some of those who felt his influence to chop it up about the legend and his ink. Artists such as Lloyd Banks, Nipsey Hussle, The Game and others share their thoughts on Pac and his outspoken ink. Also, UI managed to hunt down an old-school ink slinger who is credited around his parts for tattooing some of 2Pac’s most infamous tattoos in the early ‘90s. Another special feature is that of Pac’s “closest roaddogz,” the Outlawz—who, in an exclusive interview, sat down with UI to discuss their times with Pac, and share some never before told stories on Pac’s tattoo endeavors.
Other ink-dripping, blazing hot features inside UI’s 21st issue include a raging photo session with Cleveland’s own Machine Gun Kelly, a trip through Harlem, N.Y. to the Black Ink Gallery with Cory Gunz, and a special tribute spread dedicated to tattooed servicemen and women of the United States Armed Forces.
Urban Ink Magazine continues to serve its readers with the hottest inked celebs in the world of music, movies and television, the illest ink slingers and the hottest tattooed bods across the globe since its debut four years ago; and to this day they continue to leave a mark in the competitive tattoo magazine market. Urban Ink is distributed across America, as well as in Australia, Canada and the UK, and is available in most major chains including Walmart, Borders, Barnes & Noble and 7-11.
