Seed Communication has announced the launch of Inked, a tattoo lifestyle and fashion magazine published on a quarterly basis.
Inked will cover the latest in art, entertainment and style and feature in-depth cultural and introspective profiles.
According to Inked, about 1 in 10 Americans has gotten a tattoo including numerous Hip-Hoppers and celebrities such as Allen Iverson, Lenny Kravitz and Angelina Jolie, who will grace the cover of the Inked test issue.
According to Inked Editor-in-Chief "Hawaii" Mike Salman, the new glossy hopes that its readership will reflect the wide array of personalities that encompass the tat lifestyle.
"Tattoos are a form of self-expression, a sort of personal message to the world: I will be heard. This is a significant and influential reader and readership that, until now, has been unadressed."
Salmon went on to say that the mag hopes to stay on the cutting edge of today's entertainment market.
"This publication is at the frontlines of what's next and who's hot. Inked identifies with the individualist, the innovators of style. Those who inspire and define today's pop-culture."
Inked is a quarterly publication and will launch this fall through Kable Distribution and will be on newsstands, in tattoo parlors, surf & skate shops and Barnes & Noble.
