Unless you’re new to Famous, you have no excuse for not knowing our friend Franco Vescovi. Franco is a legendary tattoo artist and founder of Vatican (tattoo) Studios, and also the father of one of our most iconic graphics, the “Family” script. Ring a bell? This week we messed up and sent him 6 questions. We could omit one of them, but nah, we like all of the answers. Call it a Friday bonus. Head over to the blog for a Fast Five, eh hem, SIX with @Franco_Vescovi.

  •   franco_vescovi @basebxclusiveink it won't be out till end of this year. Working hard to finish. 2w
  •   luketurnerart @franco_vescovi , hi dude! I've recently watched a DVD you did , must have been some years ago, you were tattooing a portrait where the guy had a glass and there was a skull on the table? Anyway seeing the machine and how you worked with it has inspired me to buy one of your bishops . My question is can you tattoo like that with the newest version of your bishop? And what voltage /stroke would you recommend? I've never seen ink go in so smooth! I think your machine could be the one I've been looking for! Many many thanks for your help. God bless 1w

franco_vescovi Making progress on my good friend @tanks_travels sleeve. It's a skin-story of the "Roots of all his Evil". The temptations that almost destroyed a young ganbanger, but by fighting his temptations, he is now a world-trotting attorney. We all have choices in life that lead to either dark places or abundant life and light. #thankyou #bishoprotary @bishoprotary #rinsecup @rinsecup #nocturnalink @nocturnaltattooink #inkeeze #greenglide #purpleglide @inkeeze @vaticanstudiosoc #vaticanstudiosoc #youknowyoulikethissong 3mon

Over the past few years our industry has been rapped by companies that have no interest in the growth of tattooing. Yes, these are the counterfeiters from overseas and companies in our region promoting and selling knock offs of original products. These thieves keep getting better and better at copying every detail of a product: From packaging to the equipment itself. They will go as far as manufacturing emails, purchase orders and other items to make you believe they are the real manufacturer of a legit product. But don't let the neat presentation fool your soul. Counterfeiters don't know anything about tattooing,performance, customer service and/ or regards towards the art of creation. Always buy from official resellers. Don't give your hard earned cash to thieves. There are excellent companies around the world that offer original equipment to suit all budgets. Support the companies that support you and show these thieves that "stealing" doesn't belong to our tattoo industry. Share and repost to raise awareness. #tattooindustryagainstknockoffs #supportoriginality #saynotocounterfeiting #buyoriginal

  •   hd_tattoos They even copy the handmade signatures on machines...overhere we got a few fuckers making shitloads of money by selling look a like crap!!!! 4mon
  •   hd_tattoos I dont understand why these assholes can get away with this!!! Iff you sell nike or bjorn börg or marlborro you will get a fine and jail time!! 4mon
  •   franco_vescovi @hd_tattoos The only reason they get away with this is because there are certain artist out there that don't know how to spell respect. Therefore, the only way to beat these counterfeit assholes are to educate people as to why they should not buy. If they don't purchase, then there is no market, and they lose. 4mon
  •   franco_vescovi @hd_tattoos it's sad to say that there are even professional tattoo artist that will even buy the copy machines just because they are cheap bastards and don't want to spend real money on real machines 4mon
  •   fkirons At first they were copying the look. Now they are ripping off everything including to box, manual, logos and even using the name of the real creator to sell them. This is killing the remaining American industry and our country is doing close to nothing to stop them. I have a few Chinese friends and customers and I have to vouch for them that not everyone in Chinese is the same but unfortunately, counterfeiting is one of the biggest industry that fuel the Chinese economy. We got an email from one of our distributors where a company is claiming to be the creator of all our products and they even use photos from our site with our logo and my name. Unreal. Some of them go as far as creating fake POs, emails, and a bunch of illegal documents to get people bite the hook. 4mon
  •   hd_tattoos @franco_vescovi thnx for your respond, so do you really think its 'real' artists is where that fake industry is based on? or scratchers and shitty starters making these supplyers sell fast and allot?!! (I hear nothing else but he or she started tattooing just like that and bought it from those assholes)...some even open a shop just like that all based on fake crap and shitty tattoos!! to be honest i dont know anyone "serious" who use those fakes, but i do know about a ton of scratchers using everything they can get there hands on CHEAP! Do you think educating those few is solving this? 4mon
  •   eddieh2ocean Just don't copy me because I will win in court ... It sucks that people will think they can make a better product for skin and don't know anything about tattoos or the ingredients from a chemistry point #riseupagainst fakes @fkirons @franco_vescovi 3mon
  •   h3artshin3 It's bigger than anyone thinks... A major supplier was/is doing this. Tubes, needles, grips, ink. #greed Thats why I'm out of the industry, unfortunately. It's amazing what they can do overseas. It's made in the U.S. Because they peal of China stickers before selling it. If you want it China will make it for you. I've said to much... What you don't know could kill you/us. 1mon

franco_vescovi I have been an entrepreneur since I was a young kid, most of the time I always failed. I never gave up which was key, and learned from my mistakes. I also have been lucky to have some of the best mentors in my life for the past 15 years.
@agentsteven has helped me make proper decisions through his guidance and I would encourage you to download his e-book which has helped me get a better scope on what I am doing. It's a quick read and simple truths that I highly recommend. I would also encourage any young entrepreneurs to find a mentor, who can help you obtain your goals.
Give him a follow for some good tips on business and wealth. If your not seeing wisdom, it will never find you.
E-book www.agentsteven.com @agentsteven thank you for the friendship

franco_vescovi I am always truly grateful when I get to tattoo fellow tattooers. Had the opportunity to sit with one of my favorite tattooers and friend @chente_rios and tattoo his fathers portrait on him while we talked about the past 23 years as a Tattooer and how it was. He is a true legend and OG artist. My piece was rigt in the middle of some really nice portraits done by @chueyquintanar @timhendricks @skindesigntattoos #robertpho #nocturnalink @nocturnaltattooink #rinsecup @rinsecup #inkeeze @inkeeze 4mon
