Thank you for being a part of our journey. Here's to celebrating the artistry of life, one tattoo at a time!

At SkinDependent Magazine, we're rewriting the rules of the tattoo industry. As the first magazine owned and operated by a woman, we're challenging the status quo and paving the way for a more inclusive and empowering representation of all individuals in the tattoo community.

We've heard the frustrations echoed by women, female artists, and shop owners across the industry. The media, especially traditional tattoo magazines, often portray women in a narrow, overly sexualized manner that doesn't reflect the diversity and complexity of the tattoo world.

 We refuse to perpetuate these outdated stereotypes. Instead, we're dedicated to showcasing the real stories, talents, and experiences of all individuals, regardless of gender or sexual orientation.

Whether you're a female artist breaking barriers in a male-dominated industry, or a male model defying traditional beauty standards, your story matters to us.

We also refuse to glamorize the rockstar lifestyle often associated with tattoo artists. Instead, we spotlight their passions, hobbies, and diverse talents beyond their craft—whether it's painting, music, or cooking. Our goal is to humanize and celebrate the multifaceted lives of tattoo artists, moving away from tired stereotypes.

SkinDependent Magazine is a platform where authenticity reigns supreme. We celebrate the beauty of diversity and embrace the unique identities and journeys of every individual in our community. Our mission is not to discredit the past, but to offer a fresh perspective—one that embraces inclusivity, authenticity, and respect for everyone's unique journey.
