Boston-area tattoo artist and illustrator Josh McAlear eats Boston-area tattoo artists and illustrators and shits burritos. McAlear is a super talented dude and has tattooed the shit out of both Will Smith and Oh Mars. He works out of Redemption Tattoo in Cambridge, MA and has designed for Toxic Holocaust, Motherboar, and Nunslaughter. Josh was cool enough to take some time away from drawing goats to have a round of Ten Questions with RBM. We thank you Josh.
What was the last book you read?
Reign in Blood (33 1/3)
by D. X. Ferris
Why should we hire you?
I tattooed Will Smith (just for the record, I’m not saying I actually tattooed Will Smith).
What is your Bizarro World name?
According to the rules, wouldn’t it just be “Bizarro Josh”? But if I could pick, “Lörd öv the Wretched Earth’s Wörthless Inhabitants”, or “Phinneas” would be cool.
If you could have sex with anyone in history, who would you bone down with (unprotected)?
The inventor of the Ugg Boot. You mean bone down with chainsaws made of fire and napalm, right?
What cartoon villain do you relate with the most?
What is your “Making Love” album?
What is your favorite curse word?
My soon to be wife said, “doody booty” once, that was good. The one word version would be “doodybooty”.
It’s cool that they let you play your favorite Disney soundtrack at work. What is that again?
Oh, you mean “The Emperor’s New Groove?”
Congratulations! Ben & Jerry’s have decided to name an ice cream after you. What’s it called?
“Scottish/Armenian Fro Yo Peace Oph Shite”.
Finally, a round of Fuck, Marry, Kill…which one of these characters would you fuck, which would you marry, and which would you kill: R2-D2, The Iron Giant, Data.
Grow up man.
Marry-The Iron Giant
(For those of you keeping score at home, R2 is getting fucked like whoa)
