Artist SeriesAshmore Ellis

We are thrilled to have 5 tattooer on site this year at Babes Ride Out East Coast 3. Meet Michele Mazza from Woodbridge Conneticut. It's Michele's first Babes Ride Out event so let's make sure to give her the warmest welcome. 

What do you do / for how long have you done it? I've been tattooing since 1997 with a bit of a break in between for a couple of years to stay home with my twins who are now 6.

What do you love most about what you do? I love meeting new people often and hearing their stories and designing a piece unique for them. I love that my job means I get to be creative most of the time!

Where do you come from and how did tattooing come into your life? I'm from CT but spent some time living in Fl, after leaving Ringling school of art and design in FL I came back home to seek out an apprenticeship and get more tattoos! I met an artist named Hens and was going to discuss my back piece with him.  He offered to apprentice me when I showed him my drawings and expressed my hope to find a mentor and learn to tattoo. After a traditional apprenticeship eventually I began working with him.

Tell us about motorcycles in your life. I had one years ago but I never stuck with it. I witnessed someone I knew crash and die right in front of me and I couldn't shake that image from my brain. I never felt comfortable on a bike after that and gave it up. 

How did you hear about Babes Ride Out? My friend and co worker Tracey Rose asked me to do it with her last year but I couldn't make it. This year I was hoping it would all work out! I love the idea of it, I love all of these awesome women who ride! I won't lie, I'll appreciate them and live vicariously through them from my minivan though! haha 

What makes you interested in supporting Babes Ride Out? I think it's great that this event supports empowering women and just seems like a really great event overall!

Artist Series | Alicja Polacheck @alicjaplz

Artist SeriesAnya Violet

The Babes Ride Out Artist series showcases the art of talented people in our community. Each piece is donated to the Moto F.A.M. X Babes Ride Out raffle. Moto F.A.M.  is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping riders facing life changing injuries after a serious motorcycle accident. Meet Alicja Polacheck @alicjaplz ! She has hand painted an Atwyld Jacket for BRO East Coast 3 raffle. Read on to get to know more about Alicja!

Where are you from originally? 

I was born in Warsaw, Poland but have lived all over the world, from San Francisco to New York City, Berlin… the list goes on…

Where do you live now?

I live in Chicago, IL.

What first got you into art?

I’ve been into art for as long as I can remember. I was the weird kid that wanted the $10 can of sardines from the store instead of a doll because I thought the label was cool.

How would you describe your style?

Most of my work is centered around hand lettering but over the past few years I’ve been including more pictorials in my designs. I lean toward darker themes and images but am willing to give anything a shot! 

What inspires you? Have any artists in particular been an influence on you?

I find inspiration in most everything, whether it be a song I’m listening to or a joke that comes back to me while I’m waiting somewhere in line, I strive to make the things that make me happy and hopefully someone else out there will appreciate them too. 

I’ve had many influences over the years but I’ve found the people that influence me the most are my friends. I am lucky to know so many truly inspiring people. My mentors, most importantly Doc Guthrie, are all journeyman sign painters who are still slanging paint. I hope to still be painting when I’m their age. And then there’s my tattooer Shaun Topper who is continuously raising the bar or contemporary artists like Emilio Villalba and Blake Neubert that constantly blow my mind with their work and motivate me to look outside the box.

What is your favorite medium?

Gold and glass are by far my favorite materials to work with, gilding is such a beautiful and timeless process, once I saw how it was done I was hooked. I also enjoy the challenge of implementing non-traditional materials into my pieces to try and make them feel more modern.

When did you first hear about Babes Ride Out?

I first heard about Babes Ride Out three years ago. It’s such a positive and empowering event for women and one of the best weekends of the year! 

What is your connection to the motorcycle community?

I’m a fairly new rider with only two years under my belt but I try to make it out to as many events as possible. I’d like to someday make it to Babes Ride Out over seas!

Do you ride? If so, what do you ride?

I ride a black 2013 Triumph Bonneville T100.

What will you be contributing to this years raffle? 

I will be painting a custom Atwyld jacket for this years raffle. I can’t wait to see who wins!
