Tattoo Artist #ThroughGlass: How We Made the Video

By Emily Gray Brosious 

A good portion of twenty-somethings like myself know what it’s like to get a tattoo. So my teammate John Zaccari and I were curious; what’s it like on the other side of the needle – what’s it like to give a tattoo?

We wanted to capture the experience from a tattoo artist’s perspective, using Google Glass. And lucky for us, Tattoo Factory’s David Dillon obliged.

I wore Google Glass to record our interview at the popular Uptown tattoo parlor where Dillon works. Then we passed him Glass to record his point of view during a tattoo session. We asked him to walk us through his process as he worked.
