Michael Anthony Alberta Releases New Book on Tattoos and Piercings
by BWW News Desk - May 19, 2014

Michael Anthony Alberta, controversial new author and artist, writes 'Body Art Learner's Guide' - a technical manual for artists learning how to tattoo, pierce, and perform entry level body modifications. Body Art (tattooing, piercing, and body modification) is now officially recognized as both an art form and a profession. Athletes, businessmen, and even law enforcement personnel increasingly choose body art as a means of self-expression. It's clear skills vary widely among people who perform Body Art. An individual's level of education and guided practice determines ones skill. Michael Anthony Alberta guides you through the basics, encouraging to practice them over and over again so that after mastering the primary skill set, readers can then advance to more sophisticated techniques coming out in Volume 2. The main reasons Mike wrote 'Body Art Learner's Guide' is to further the goals of 'rookies' whose ambitions are to make a positive impact on the trade, remind veterans what our trade standards are, and break-down the corrupt educational system that's been plaguing this trade for decades. According to Michael, for the aspiring body artist, the ideal path to refine ones skills is finding a noble artist, 'noble' meaning willing to take on an apprentice in exchange for free work around the shop. However, points out that some of these 'teachers' will just milk apprentices for their time and teach them little to nothing about body art. Although it violates the unwritten body art code of ethics and blacklists you from the mainstream body art media, he firmly believes this law is flawed and this information should be available with or without a formal apprenticeship. Now that body art is jolting the mainstream, there's a surplus of cheap apprentice labor, and a lot of shops are exploiting these young adults by keeping them around just to sterilize and clean the shop. Some shop owners go so far as to humiliate their 'maintenance man' in front of clients. Michael Anthony Alberta wrote this book for both of them; for the student to build a firm foundation without being subjected to such treatment and for the crooked shop owner who knows how hard it is to work in this field and uses that to screw people over. 'It's all there- the whole enchilada' - Steve Santa Cruz CEO and Founder of Empire Tattoos Worldwide. 'I require all my artists to read this book and answer a series of questions prior to getting hired' - Ruslan Yeshmekov 'I wish I can go back in time and terminate your parents before you were born to prevent this from being written' - Most Old School Artists and Shop Owners Body Art Learner's Guide ( ISBN 9781483402437 ) is available in paperback or eBook almost everywhere books are sold including Barnes and Noble, Kindle, Apple, Amazon, EBay, Etsy, Lulu and more. About Author Michael Anthony Alberta is formally educated in various forms of Body Work, body art, and subtle energy. His training led him to start Dynamic Body Art Institute, produce a medicinal modality with an accompanying software application and author a couple books around these topics within the past few months. Body Art Learners Guide was written first, then Leaving a Mark. Michael also originated Quantum Body Jewelry with David Sereda of Light Stream Technologies. Michael Anthony Alberta's research into geomancy, symbolism and human vortex points allowed him to articulate a system for not only their application, but marking the body in general. (more...)

Dynamic Body Art Institute Launches New Website
by BWW News Desk - May 1, 2014

Dynamic Body Art Institute's newest mission is to unify all walks of life through the crafts of Body Art. The Institute is essentially using body art as a vehicle to introduce exotic terms like sacred geometry and transhumanism into the lexicon of popular culture. There is a powerful subculture emerging out of tattooing, piercing, and body modification. Fueled by its social activism and human enhancement elements, this trade is radically transforming into gateways to things people may or may not be ready for. The question is how far are humans willing to go? About the Institute's Founder- Michael Anthony Alberta is formally educated in various forms of Body Work, body art, and subtle energy. His training led him to recently produce a medicinal modality with an accompanying software application and author 2 books around these topics within the past few months. The first one is titled Body Art Learners Guide. The second, Leaving a Mark. Michael also originated Quantum Body Jewelry with David Sereda of Light Stream Technologies. Michael Anthony Alberta's research into geomancy, symbolism and human vortex points allowed him to articulate a system for not only their application, but marking the body in general. Fans can read a more in depth Q and A with Michael, check out links to his media appearances and to find out more about Dynamic Body Art Institute's products by visiting their website. The Institute is membership based yet most of their content is open to the public. The site has many new features including a newsletter, store, classifieds and more. In addition, they now offer various body art educational services such as hands-on workshops, design consultations, and live online training. Dynamic Body Art Institute intends on breaking down the fraternal structures plaguing the education of tattooing, piercing, and body modification while investigating the correspondences of body art to lifestyles such as body building and plastic surgery.

Summit is Introducing Its 2014 Remote Control Lawn Mowers With Rubber Tracks For Steep Hill Slope Mowing
by BWW News Desk - Jan 14, 2014

Over the years, Summit has perfected the Remote Control Lawn Mower and is excited to introduce the new line up for 2014 starting with the all new TRX-60 track driven slope mower. After many customer inquiries to develop a 60" unit, the TRX-60 was unveiled late 2012 and has received attention from all over the world. Owners of this machine enjoy its ability to maintain slopes up to 40-45 degrees without risking injury or even breaking a sweat. Besides its new sleek looking Body Work, Summit relocated the fuel cell to the rear and added an adjustable tractor weight assembly to allow the operator to tune the balance between traction and protecting the turf. For a professionally manicured slope, removing the counter weights will eliminate tearing of the turf during zero-turn maneuvers but limits the slope mowing capabilities to 25 degrees. For rough brush clearing, the user simply adds the counter weights to be able to stay in control on slopes up to 40 degrees. Unlike the side mounted tracks on the TRX-42, the TRX-60 has larger 9" rubber tracks behind the deck allowing side discharge and bagging attachments requiring the counter weight system to maintain precision control on 40 degree slopes. Also new for 2014 is a higher 6 mph top speed gearing and Commercial grade Kawasaki twin cylinder engine running commercial Hydro-Gear transmissions ready for day-in day-out operation. (more...)
