After almost a year this sketchbook “The Rose Book” went to the printer. Thanks to Tim Hendricks and Guy Waisman for really helping me pull it together. For its grand release, I will be selling it at the Ink & Iron this year on June 7th, 8th, and 9th, which is a great place to pick it up and have it signed by some of the guys in it. It’s 100 pages and will go for only $80.00

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.
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
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.
This “Stations Of The Cross” art show at Vatican Studios on April 7th at 6pm in Lake Forest is going to be so amazing to see, I really wish I could make it out for it. The good news is that we will be showing some of the pieces at the “From Left to Right” art show Tribal Bobby and I are throwing on the 11th of April here in New York at Wooster Social. I have no doubt that this wooden cross art show is going to be off the hook amazing. If you are in the area that day make sure you go, Just tell my friend Franco the owner of Vatican that I told you about the show and encouraged you to go you will be welcomed.
