I had the pleasure of spending some time with Stalley a few months back, my good friend BJ Betts was doing some work on him at our shop in soho.  He’s a solid dude who makes great hip hop music, I back him.  I always say the real legends speak from the heart.  He speaks from the heart and is a legend in the making. BCG Get that Honest Cowboy Mixtape, support the real.

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.  Juliette  Lewis and Toby Morse “Natural Born Friendships”

Ghetto Protected Panther Tattoo

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.

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.

Cover Of Freshly Inked Tattoo Magazine

I was pleasantly surprised yesterday with a sneak peak of the September issue of Freshly Inked Magazine, set the hit stands next week.  I am very pleased with the picture, and honored to be on the cover.

I always joke that the fashion world has shown more love then my own industry, and then this cover happened out of the blue.  But I’ve always said “I don’t represent tattooing, and tattooers…I represent myself, my friends, my family, and hard work”   Life is more about personal relationship, then a culture or a career.  Be good to people and good things happen.
