Last night I was lucky enough to be a part of a historic art show involving over 100 hand painted wooden crosses. The art show included some of my dearest friends and some of my favorite artist. I want to thank my friend Franco of Vatican Studios for including me in such a special event. Here’s my piece.
My friend Fernando Mazza is from Brazil, he has been spending this past month in town and has become a friend and client. Fernando is the cousin of my friend Rodrigo who works with me at Wooster Social. I was really impressed with his work and it was a honor to put some of mine on him. He came to Ny to work on a project for a magazine called Mens Moments Magazine and I’m proud to say I was apart. We shot a full day at Wooster aka NYInk. It was nice to be shot by a friend which whom I have respect for.
I had a nice surprise this evening, The Game posted a pic of himself chilling on his Bentley wearing my Self Made Dues Paid crew neck sweatshirt on his Instagram. And I only made a few of these joints in red, I feel real blessed to have the west coast G rep one. Thanks Game. And thanks to my brother Toby for lacing him up with it. Friends are like family.
This Tim Hendricks machine is one of the machines I have used almost everyday since he made it for me over 7 years ago. If you don’t own a Tim Hendricks tattoo machine and you’re a real tattooer, you’re slipping. Get one here – Saltwatertattoo Thanks Tim for providing the tools that help me provide for myself and my family. Much respect my friend. Thank you
Spent a lot of time with my brother Brian on my last trip to cali as well as our good friend Jason. We spent this day up in La at the LACMA as well as doing a lot of RD for some future work.
I recently had the pleasure and honor of tattooing this gentleman’s hand. Aaron Grenia senior stylest of Prive Salon New york. I concider it a great honor to tattoo anyone who works with their hands and publicly for that matter. Also Aaron has been tattooed by a couple of my favorite tattooers and just adding to his collection with the likes of Kahlil Rintye is a honor. Great meeting you Aaron, till next time , be well.
