REVIEW:
Amazing!
What a life, and he is still pretty young yet. This guy tattoos everyone you can think of. My fave was Lenny Kravitz. He also tattoos non-famous people too though. Still, to be so young, accomplished in his craft, and a legend already.... Kevin McCurdy has definitely arrived.
I love the tattoos I have. When I read about artists like Bang Bang, it makes me love them even more. He said something that is resonating through me about tattooing women and how you need to accentuate the beauty, not subtract from it. That's so true. It's all about placement, especially on a woman. I'm a chick with 9 tattoos, but I still like to glam out and go to fine dining restaurants. Tattoos on a woman need to be balanced so they don't take away from your femininity. Bang Bang has mastered this art! He may be among the best in the business, but he strives for better constantly. He never stops learning or challenging himself as an artist. That's why he's a legend.
Tattoo fans; read this! Enjoy the wicked photos of his and other artists' work. You will be blown away. Of that I guarantee.

5/5

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
