Koi Fish Tattoo On Arm

July 31st, 2012 | Posted by admin in Reference | Tattoo - (Comments Off)

One legend depicts how a Koi climbed up the falls on the Yellow River at a point called Dragon Gate and was transformed into a dragon. Based on that legend the Koi became a symbol of perseverance, tenacity, ambition, aspiration and advancement. Another remarkable thing about the Koi is that when it is caught, it would lie still on the chopping board without struggling or flapping around. This led to the Koi being a symbol of courage, composure, peace and tranquility under pressure.  The Koi are also referred to as “living jewels,” and are also associated with good fortune. The image of five golden koi are said to mean “eternal wealth” and well-being.

There is a silly debate on which direction the koi should face, up or down.  As a tattoo especially a western style one, the orientation is less significant and more about the style and quality of the tattoo as a piece of tattoo art.  Koi tattoos carry different meanings for different people. Even the placement of the fish may mean something to certain people. Obviously, the ultimate meaning of any tattoo would always be unique and personal for the person who has it.

Brixton, Timeless Apparel and Headwear

July 27th, 2012 | Posted by admin in Clothing | Friends | Videos - (Comments Off)

Brixton come out of my hometown of Oceanside,California. Originally just hats I think, but now they went on to make some other great clothes and accessories.  Knowing the guys involved makes me extra proud of them and how far they have come, they are stand up guys with class.  I wish them continuous growth and success with Brixton and whatever other endeavors they involve themselves with.  Here is a little video of their 2012 fall collection that I found on Hypebeast. (There is a few shots of my favorite surf spot growing up, south side Oceanside pier)

All the best to Dave and Pete and the rest of the good people at Brixton,

Tales From the Tube, Rick Griffin

July 23rd, 2012 | Posted by admin in Artist - (Comments Off)

Rick Griffin has been one of my favorite artists for as long as I can remember, He was most widely known for designing some of the Grateful Dead’s best known posters. For me, I love the surf influenced art Rick Griffin created, as a young kid I used to draw waves often, but when I seen how he interpreted waves and barrels, it blew my mind. Thanks Mr Griffin for the inspiration, RIP

King Fantastic, Why? Where? What? Video

July 21st, 2012 | Posted by admin in Videos - (Comments Off)

Some good west coast hip hop right here, King Fantastic did a great job with this joint and Kristina Rose killed it.  A great video and song, a genius idea, white girl mouthing the words,amazing.  Much better video then a bunch of dudes driving rented Bentleys waving stacks of money. west up.

*There is some nudity and cursing, don’t watch or listen if that sort of thing offends you < Thats you mom. I personally like women, hip hop, and am not bothered by cursing, obviously.
