We’re super excited… We’ve managed to get a couple of Temptations interviews, at least one of them shot… And more on the way. It’s looking like we might be able to get at least a few months with the beautiful, sexy pictorial type articles we all love. Even though we have a Temptation ready to roll… We decided to hold off on publishing it just yet.
July 17th is National Tattoo Day… Usually we would run a Tattoo issue in July… But 2020 is not a usual year for pretty much anything and everybody. Because getting photo shoots in the age of Covid is challenging… We figured we would just skip our Tattoo issue this year… but it has been missed! We’ve actually had people asking if we were going to be doing another Tattoo issue this year. Our lovely Candy Lane, has stepped up and agreed to be our Temptation for it… So now the ball is in YOUR court… We need a few of our beautiful tattooed folks to send in some tattoo photos along with a few words about what your ink means to you. It doesn’t have to be professional photos… Even just cellphone photos shot by your partner or friends… We’re looking for some fun, self shot creativity for a second featured article for our Tattoo issue. We would love to make you a part of our upcoming issue dedicated to skin art!
