matteolassandro introToday we have a guest from beautiful Italy. Matteo is playing rhythm guitar in FIVE WAYS TO NOWHERE, an alternative hard rock band from Torino. He is owner of fifteen very different tattoos and the story of each one he has told especially for us.

Reflections of Darkness [RoD]: When did you get your first tattoo and what was it? Did it take much time until you decided to get it done?
Matteo: I did my first tattoo when I was 25. I did two stars, one on both elbows: I love stars and I was thinking about it for years. I preferred to wait “a bit” because I wasn’t so sure to get tattooed at 18 or 20. I always loved tattoos, but you know, when you’re a kid it’s easier to make bad choices :-)

johnnydaggers intro by RandallRobertsWhen we are saying that we are looking for new artists for our project around the world it’s not only beautiful worlds. Today I am very happy to present our first guest from the USA. Johnny is author of horror novels and filmmaker. His first book, ‘Neverlasting’, was published in July 2016 and has collected many excited reviews. First time since we are running our project, we have a person being tattooed from head to toe. So let’s look into his story.

Reflections of Darkness [RoD]: When did you get your first tattoo and what was it? Did it take much time until you decided to get it done?
Johnny Daggers: I am actually much older than I am perceived to me. It makes me feel so old to admit, but over twenty years ago. I grew up as a 'punk-rocker' from a very early age. I recall wanting my first tattoo when I was six or seven.  I remember that my father had bought the Stray Cats 'Built For Speed' on vinyl (of course), and I would stare at these cool 'rockabilly' guys, with their cool tattoos, old cars, and pin-up girl artwork. I said to my dad, “I am going to get a Stray Cats tattoo someday”. I am sure that he thought I was joking, but I wasn't. I had a serious love for tattoos at a young age. Back when it wasn't the mainstream and when you were more or less viewed as trash or a pariah if you had one.

helpforOlaToday, I as owner of this magazine have kind of a personal issue and want to ask you all for a big favour. Here’s the story behind… I met Ola, a very kind lady from Poland, several years ago during concerts or festivals. Many people in the scene know her from various events. She was always a kind and happy person. I remember pretty well our stay in a little hotel during NCN festival, where her “knights” were protecting her always. Later, we were joking about those “knights” constantly and I always had a smile on my face because of such nice memories with her. Then, a few years ago, Ola fell ill and someday it was sure that she was suffering from ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), an incurable neurological disease leading to impairment of function of all the muscles, which will rob her of the life she knew.

damianobianchi1We are continuing to search for new interesting artists for our project worldwide and the most important criteria for us is that we like their tattoos. Today we have a guest from the amazing city of Rome. Damiano plays in the Neo Steampunk band POISON GARDEN and on 24th February 2017, their debut album will be released via Trisol Music Group. But let see now what he will tell us about his tattoos.

Reflections of Darkness [RoD]: When did you get your first tattoo and what was it? Did it take much time until you decided to get it done?
Damiano: Well, first of all thanks a lot for this interview, tattoos have always been an important part of my way to declare who I am, and it’s a pleasure to talk to you all about them. The first one I got is the letter “A” inserted in a circle, of course is the “Anarchy” sign. I was fifteen and in the nineties there was a huge punk scene in Rome where I lived, I was just a boy but in my mind words like “revolution”, “riot”, “antagonism” grew fast, I was sick about the mainstream way of life, mainstream music, and also about the political situation, I used to think that also a little thing like have a little tattoo could make a difference. That little sign for me is like a voice that screams: “I’m not like you”. I didn’t think too much to get tattooed; one of the old punks I knew got out of jail and said “I’ll start to make tattoos” and in a couple of weeks he bought all the stuff and some other punks started to get tattooed so I said, “ok I’m the next one!”.

Most music festivals occur in the summertime when the sun is out and good vibes are emitting from every corner. So why not turn that idea on its head and go to a music festival highlighting the most intense and foreboding music around. Europe is chockful of great metal and gothic music festivals. Here are 10 of our most anticipated this year.
