Repping for Life

June 27th, 2011 by Larry


Our Charleston-based friends KJ and Matt came to Atlanta to spend the weekend doing some low key activities that included a visit to our studio, lemon pepper wings at The Local, and watching the Gold Cup Final between USA and Mexico.

I’m not sure if it was the exhilaration from witnessing the USA’s first 2 goals, or the libation-fueled disappointment from seeing Mexico score 4 straight spirit-crushing goals, but the night air promised something more. The USMNT may have been down and out, but our night was not over! Things took a drastic turn when our homies from SC made the spontaneous decision to get tattooed with the We Are the Process “Tommys” logo.

Do you have ink inspired by We Are the Process brand? If so, send in the proof and we’ll compile a post with all your photos. Just hit that nifty, new contact button in the left sidebar or email us at info [at]

More photographic evidence after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »

One of my favorite bartenders in Atlanta, Evan Hawkins, was crowned the National Champion of the 2011 United States Bartenders Guild Drinks & Ink Competition presented by Tuaca. This not-so-usual take on a bartender competition combined the intersecting cultures of bartenders and tattoos with bartenders being judged on their Tuaca bold shot recipe and the overall craftsmanship of their tattoo.

Hawkins captured his first national bartender competition by beating out eight other finalists from the around the country to win a Tuaca photo spread in this month’s Inked Magazine.

“I’ve competed in several bartender competitions and Drinks & Ink was one of the most different and fun ones I’ve ever experienced,” said Hawkins. “I’m proud to have been recognized for both my Pura Vida body art and Tuaca bold shot and am stoked up to be featured in Inked.”

Hawkins won his first national bartender competition with his Pura Vida bold shot recipe and a tattoo featuring a sugar skull with the words “Pura Vida” under it. Pura Vida means pure life in Spanish and the skull is a candy given out on the “day of dead” ceremony in Mexico. For Hawkins, it means to celebrate your life and live the best you can before the end comes.
