I sat down with my friend Jake Szufnarowski and had a hour long conversation about my life, my Lost Art Of The Gentleman thing, tattooing, fighting and some other stuff.  I’ve done a little radio but this is the first time I have done a podcast.  It was cool to do it with a friend.  You can get the podcast on iTunes now or on Jakes Site.  Thanks for listening.  Photo for this add : Amanda Lopez

I had the honor to contribute a painting for my brothers company Violent Gentlemen’s first art show / season opener party.  Who better to paint than Wayne Gretzky  aka “The great one” who is credited with popularizing hockey in California, after his years with the Kings.  It was fun painting a subject matter I’ve never really painted, hockey.

Skulls And Roses Tattoo

A really nice guy from New Zealand got his first tattoo from me the other day at Wooster, skulls and roses half sleeve here all done basically in one shot .  You really cant go wrong with skulls and roses, they are timeless classics.  Normally I would suggest starting higher on the arm and working your way down, but I still have some tradition tattoo ideals.  I do also recognize change and find myself budging a bit with the changing times.  He can still wear long sleeve no problem and arm tattoos don’t seem to be taboo at all any more.

Live Your Dream On Chef Rob Ruiz

When I tattoo old friends its really interesting because they have some “vintage” Luke work usually and doing new work up against that older stuff is a bit of a contrast and a visual timeline.   My friend Rob Ruiz is one of my dearest friends and in a way I credit him for not following in a gang related lifestyle that was prominent where we were growing up.  But thats a story for another day.  Here we have his hand and a somewhat awkward space that I think we filled perfectly if I do say so myself.

Friendship At Oliver Pecks Tattoo Marathon Dallas Texas

Amazing time at Oliver Peck’s tattoo marathon in Dallas.  Nothing like spending time with dear friends.  Friendship to me has always meant so much.  When you grow up with friends instead of your actual family your friendships become family.  I would do anything for my friends at any moment but that goes without saying.  True friends never talk about you behind your back,  but speak up for you if someone is.   Thank you to my friends who are now family.  Champaign for my real friends and real pain for my sham friends.
