Every year I hear from friends how great our friend Oliver Peck’s “Friday 13th” tattoo party is. Every year I secretly hope to be invited to such a event, well this is the year, Oliver called me to be a part and I’m so excited ! Staring at 12am friday September 13th I will be joining tons of friends and peers down in Dallas to do 24 hours of straight tattooing. I’ll be tattooing as many “friday the 13th” themed tattoos in the period of 24 hours. Up until now I think about 14 or so is the most I have ever done in a day. I hopping the get close to a hundred, but having never done this event I’m not sure how it’s gonna go down. See you there. 13$ tattoo 7$ tip for good luck ! Check this video out – 13th Tattoo-a-thon
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.

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.
I love this picture of my very dear friend Sabina Kelley, Beautiful woman inside and out. Freemason lamp.
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.
