Meet Sloan our Featured Jägerette of January 2012
INKED Magazine: For our latest issue release, we teamed up with one of our favorite liquor brands. Jägermeister is known for inspiring crazy nights out, and last night at GunBar was no different. To fit the bill for the Inked party, Jägermeister teamed up with tattoo artist artist Joseph Aloi, who adorned the tap machine as he saw fit.
When we asked him about the project, he said, “This was a fun project. Distinct, energized letterforms somewhere between east LA and middle earth, some sacred geometry, the language of Jäger, a shot of magic, and a chaser of heavy metal. That was the vibe my eye aspired to.” He seemed to capture all that and more.
In case you’re curious to know what he’s working on now, Joseph Aloi is currently tattooing (although less frequently) at famed New York City shop Daredevil. He’s in the process of working on two books, one of which (“Tatt Book”) is being released this fall. The second book, which is a retrospective of his work will be released in 2013. He’s also has toy collaborations out with Kidrobot and more with his own company JK5.
Designer, Jörn Beyer aka Jørn, based in Düsseldorf, Germany has revamped the packaging of major spirit brands, to see if people’s product decisions would be affected by replacing their signature glass bottles with Tetra Paks. The resulting series called ‘Ecohols’ displays the labels of Jack Daniels, Absolut Vodka and Jägermeister on ordinary beverage cartons. What remains of the brand, is it just about the name, its contents, or the total package?
