I love when my friends visit me here at Wooster Street aka Ny Ink. I moved far away from my friends when I moved to New York two and a half years ago and I feel so lucky when my friends come stay with me at my small Lower East Side New York apartment, and bring their friends by my shop.

A Ghetto Protected panther tattoo I made the other day. Over the last 8 years I have spent a lot of time working and hanging with my dear friend Morgwn Pannypacker, it is due to him that I do this style tattoos sometimes his gangster skull guys and gangster panther heads are the best. Many people try, including myself to do them as cool as him but more often then not they/we fall short. If you ever get the chance to get tattooed by Morgwn do yourself a favor get a GP skull guy from him. If not him I’ll do my best to do him justice respectfully as I have seen some of his secrets up close over the years. I just want everyone to know He is the OG. GP Family. Love you my friend.

Jay Z Picasso Baby has officially brought Hip Hop to a new place in society. This is truly history in the making. I’m happy to see that progressive people exist at the MOMA and at HBO, thank you for making this possible. My respect for Jay Z grows all the time. I have great respect for people who come from little and do much. Self Made. This video has been released on You Tube.
I started the #lostartofthegentleman (Instagram /Twitter/Tumblr) because I’m a old fashion romantic who believes in Morality, Integrity, and treating women with Respect. I have a Mother, I have a young Sister, and young Nieces. I don’t believe men have many positive role models. At a young age they learn that sleeping with as many women as they can, objectifying, lying to, misleading, and mistreating women is a manly trait, or at least “cool.” I believe it is not, I believe it is cowardly and creepy. Disrespecting your woman is disrespecting yourself. Don’t get me wrong if you’re single by all means enjoy ! but I say do so tactfully and respectfully. #stayclassy #LAG Thank you David Yellen for this timeless photo.

Found it ! So my brother Brian and our nephew Jake were in town the last few days, it was Jakes first time in NY and we were doing as much tourist things as possible. Also on the agenda was find the new September issue of ”Freshly Inked Magazine” with my mug on the cover. We found it at the 3rd place we looked, a Barnes & Noble, they had a stack of five, so we decided to leave one. I don’t know if you ever had your face on the cover of a magazine at a book store or a newsstand, but let me tell you its a pretty great feeling. I’m very thankful and happy to see some fruits of my labor, I’m blessed. Thanks again to Freshly Inked mag for letting me wear a suit, thanks to all my friends who always support me and wish me well, I’m nothing without you guys. It makes me proud to make my friends proud. We are all self made.
