Life of Agony Bassist to Appear in Season Premiere of ‘NY Ink’

Elke Teurlinckx

New York native – Alan Robert, best known for being the primary-songwriter/bassist for Life of Agony, and most recently as the creator of the hit comic series- ‘Crawl to Me‘ and ‘Wire Hangers‘ (IDW Publishing) – guest stars on the Season Two premiere of TLC’s NY INK on Thursday, Dec. 29 at 9:00PM ET/PT.

The show’s star – Ami James, along with the rest of the Wooster Street Social Club crew, have welcomed celebrity guests into their shop before. Last season, Corey Taylor, Method Man, and LaMarr Woodley (linebacker for the Pittsburgh Steelers), all got inked at Wooster St. and told their tattoo stories. On the upcoming Season Two premiere, titled “Kings of NY,” the show kicks off with Robert going under the needle by the program’s female standout tattoo artist – Megan Massacre.

“Wooster St. has some of the most amazing tattoo talent around, so I was thrilled to get my piece done by Megan. Her style is perfect for the ink I chose,” said Robert. “Being on the show was a trip and it was interesting to see, first hand, just what goes into making a hit series like this. I give the artists a lot of credit, too. It’s one thing to deliver kick-ass tattoos day in and day out… but it’s another thing to try and do that with a bunch of cameras jammed in your face. No pressure, right?!”

In related news, Robert’s ‘Crawl to Me’ graphic novel hits fine bookstores everywhere in January 2012. The book includes the entire, four-issue comic series, with an introduction written by legendary Thor artist, Walter Simonson, as well as a step-by-step glimpse into Robert’s artwork process.
