Stalley -Sound of Silence music video. I went in to my shop on my day off to spend a minute with my friend Bj Betts who was doing a guest spot with us. Bj was tattooing a rapper named Stalley who is signed with MMG, I liked the dudes vibe he seemed legit, but thinking MMG ! I instantly judged him in my mind thinking he was probably just another hip pop artist…I was wrong..
Every month our dear friend Tommy Montoya comes back to Wooster Social and works, sometimes bringing his equally talented brother Mikey with him.

I spent quite a few days surfing with Donald, mostly just down the road from his shop on Oceanside Blvd. He was a Master surfboard shaper/designer and will be missed. RIP DT Hawaiian Pro Designs
I was just thinking to myself that I wasn’t going to post any music videos for a bit because I have posted a few lately, and then this great video is brought to my attention. (more…)
I will be spending some time with some of my good friends including Chris Nunez and Ross Nagle in the next few weeks. First I’m paying a short visit to my dear friends at Allstar Ink Tattoo in Limerick City Ireland. The only other shop I would visit besides Classic Ink in Dublin….
…Then we are off to Notting Hill London where our good friend Ami James will be opening his Love Hate Social Club Tattoo Parlor.
I will be working the opening week with Ross Nagle, Ami James, Chris Nunez, Tommy Montoya, Grant Cobb and Charlie Roberts. It’s going to be a mad house. Make sure you get booking your appointments to avoid disappointment. Also there will be some of the best tattooers from around the globe rotating through the shop including all from above plus Freddy Corbin, Greg Christian, Darren Brass, BJ Betts, Marco Serio and plenty more.
