OTW Advocate Mister Cartoon Featured In New York Times

It's no secret that the cost for a tattoo from OTW advocate Mister Cartoon can run up to tens of thousands of dollars. The Marcel has hosted an artist-in-residence series where Mister Cartoon will be conducting private tattoo sessions. The New York Times recently featured a story on Mister Cartoon regarding his Marcel residency.

An excerpt from the article reads below:

For Mister Cartoon, 40, who has done two previous tattoo sessions at the hotel in the last year, the promotions offer a chance to visit New York — a place that has captivated him since he saw Fab 5 Freddy painting graffiti in the music video for the Blondie song “Rapture” — and to practice his art in a nicer setting.

“I’ve worked in a lot of hard spots — garages, inside of nightclubs, that’s the worst,” he said. “But this is very comfortable, and it’s important that it be a comfortable setting to do this type of art. Most tattoo places, it’s like, ‘You want to get a tattoo or what?’ That’s the sales pitch.”
