East Side Ink

See Cypress Hill's Sen Dog Watch Fan Get Tattoo, Tell Wild Tour Stories, 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. So when Cypress Hill were in New York City last fall to drop an hour-long phenomenal performance at Gramercy Theatre, Revolver hosted a contest where one fan would win the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet rapper Sen Dog and get a Cypress Hill–inspired tattoo of their choice. Winner Ricky Mitchell, who got his first album from the West Coast hip-hop pioneers in the sixth grade, decided on artwork based on the group's latest psychedelic LP, Elephants on Acid. "When we started, we wanted to make our logo be like our favorite rock albums — like Judas Priest, Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath covers," explains Sen Dog. Watch East Side Ink's Josh Lord work on the piece while the rapper dishes on being "the Cheech & Chong of hip-hop," quitting his day job at UPS, playing with the Beastie Boys for the first time, why Cypress Hill are banned from Saturday Night Live and more.
