Positive mental attitude!
Look in my eyes
Tell me what you see
No trace of ignorance
Inside of me
Positive thinking
Free from guilt
Proud of the friendships
That I’ve built
Think positive PMA!
Live positive PMA!
Act positive PMA!
Positive mental attitude!

Luke Wessman’s Max Fish Art Show LES NYC

Luke Wessman's art show Max Fish 2/21/12

So I have been waiting to do a little post on my art show at Max Fish last week , but wanted to gather some photos that were taken by  friends that night.

I didn’t move to New York with plans of having an art show, I moved here to tattoo at “Wooster Street” aka NY INK, and try to grow as a person and a artist in search of new adventures and opportunities.  Having said that Max Fish was the only place I would have had an art show, the place just felt right from the beginning, Max Fish just has good mojo, and its my understanding that its hard to get one there, so it all working out the way it did, I just have to say, it was meant to be.   I am so humbled by the love and support all my new NYC family showed me, coming out and showing so much love and support.   Not being from New York, only spending less then a year here, and having such a amazing turn out, it almost makes my eyes water, almost.  Thank you all who came out I am honored by your support and friendships. 

Respectfully,

Luke

C/S G/P

Here is some photos from friends that night, and a few new paintings.

PS : A special thanks to my family members Rob, Brian, and Diana for coming out just for the show, I love you guys. And Aly, I love you too brother.

…on to the next project

Swallow and rose foot tattoo Luke Wessman Soho NYC

February 17th, 2012 | Posted by admin in Tattoo - (Comments Off)

swallow rose foot tattoo luke wessman

Fun foot tattoo today. Swallows are one of my favorite birds to tattoo, and roses are my favorite flower to tattoo,  either are a classic and look great if done right.

The meaning of a swallow tattoo. The one meaning I have always heard, and chosen to believe, was that they signify for a sailor a doing a certain miles at sea.  A sailor with one swallow had travelled over 5,000 nautical miles, and a sailor with two swallows had travelled 10,000 nautical miles.  Traveling these great distances was extremely difficult and dangerous in the early days of sailing, so one or more swallow tattoos denoted a very experienced and valuable sailor. It is also legend that if the sailor drowns, the swallows will carry their soul to heaven, representing freedom and hope.

Another coined term in the UK for the swallow tattoo on the hands is a symbolism of a prison sentence from an ex-con to the meaning of “done your bird, done your time”.

 But you do not need to be a sailor to get one of these great birds tattooed, just wanting a cool tattoo is a good enough reason, and a rose tattoo is one of the best tattoos you can get in my opinion, “always in bloom” timeless classic.

Luke Wessman at the Ami James pop up event at the Empire hotel Fashion Week

February 15th, 2012 | Posted by admin in Celebrities | Events | Friends - (Comments Off)

Ami was doing this small “pop up” event in the Empire hotel across from the Lincoln Center during this months “Fashion Week” or as I like to call it “Fashion Weak” Ami invited me to do a little tattooing with him there.  Im a single man these days and I never get tired of  being surrounded  by super models, who are partaking in fashion weak events such as this one all over New York City, also its nice to get off Wooster street for a change. Thanks Ami #FTM

I did a couple tattoos. The first one was on Joshua David Stein the newly appointed editor and chief for Blackbook.  I found Joshua to be very pleasant, and for the sake of the tattoo, very easy going. He has been tattooed by a few tattooers that I admire, so it was a pleasure to add a small piece to his collection. Its always great to share a canvas with your peers. Thanks Joshua, Pleasure to meet you and good luck with your new job.

The second was on the lovely  Neon Hitch (her real name rivals my older brothers, Eventide for uniqueness) We actually started at the Empire Hotel but do to chaos and time, we hopped a cab down to 43 wooster street “Ny Ink” to finish up in peace.  Although the tattoos I did on her were small they were very meaningful and it was cool spending some time with such a Og Gypsy like Neon.

Nice meeting you Neon, best of luck in the music business, and safe travels about. #green
