Throw on your leather jacket and get ready to take a wild ride, this is Inked’s 2021 Moto Issue. We've dedicated this issue to all of the adrenaline junkies out there as we talk to some of the most inspiring tattooed daredevils in our world. If it gets your motor going, you'll find it in here. This issue is so action-packed we were forced to put out three separate covers. You can pick up the 2021 Moto Issue at InkedShop.com. Or, as we recommend, grab yourself a subscription so you don't even have to bother doing anything to obtain each issue, your friendly neighborhood postal worker will bring it right to you. You won't even have to put pants on or anything.
In case we haven't sold you on the issue yet, here's a sneak preview of what's inside.
TikTok superstar Bella Poarch told jus about how she plans to turn her massive popularity on the social media platform into a multi-faceted career, the time she spent serving in the U.S. Navy and how quarantine has prevented her from fully understanding the reach she has.
“My favorite tattoo is the piece on my back—it’s a ship with wings,” Poarch says. “It basically represents me being in the Navy. The wings are because I worked in aviation and I was an Airman. The ship is because I was stationed in Japan for two-and-a-half years while I was deployed.”
On another one of our covers we have former WWE Superstar and Guardian of the Galaxy, Dave Bautista. In our freewheeling conversation we discussed the upcoming “Army of the Dead” and how much fun it is to shoot a zombie movie, how being a fan helped him through hard times growing up and the way riding his motorcycle helps him stay centered.
"Tattoos are stories and I love stories," Bautista tells us. "I have a lot of cover-ups, I've made a lot of mistakes, but that's just the story of my life."
For our third cover, we’re featuring Trippie Redd. We spoke with the prolific rapper about his most recent album, “Pegasus,” his tattoos and a whole lot more.
“[We] definitely elevated the video game sound and made it way crazier," Redd said about his latest release. "The beats and everything, they’re crazy. They take dancehall shit, they take dubstep. They take all types of different crazy shit and use it and flip it in their own way and make it hip-hop, like trap. It’s hard.”
Internet prankster MTVJesse stopped by Inked NYC to get tattooed, bringing an entire party along with him. We spoke with the Canadian jokester about moving to L.A., running afoul of the law and much more.
Bryce Wong may very well be the modern-day version of Leonardo da Vinci. For starters, Wong is a painter, a sneaker designer, a tattoo artist and a graphic designer. We found out where Wong first got his inspiration, what it's like to work for Nike and much more.
Riding is an integral feature of Imogen Lehtonen's DNA. We spoke with the innovative woman who has taken her passion for riding and combined it with her family’s jewelry business. You can check out the rest of the story here.
This is just a preview of everything we have in store for you in the 2021 Moto Issue. We also have interviews with Nats Getty, Okuda, Joannah Castro and more. Plus, a review of this year's hottest rides from Natalie Cuomo, a photo essay by Jason Goodrich documenting his ride with Indian Motorcycles and a killer art project curated by Luke Wessman.
