Josh Lord on Tattooing the Avengers, Custom Design's Hidden Meaning, More

Revolver and Inked have partnered to bring you stories on some of the world's best tattooers and tattoo shops, including New York City's East Side Ink. Here, we sat down with East Side Ink co-owner Josh Lord to talk about his love of comics as a kid to how he eventually did the Avengers tattoo, a design he says wasn't exactly easy. "Getting six of the most famous people in the film industry to agree on one design was difficult," he laughs, adding it was a lot of fun despite being a huge fan. Watch the video above in which Lord recounts tattooing Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., Jeremy Renner, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson (who portray in the Marvel movies Thor, Iron Man, Hawkeye, Captain America, and Black Widow, respectively), and reveals the hidden meaning behind the custom tattoo's design.
