Brian and Dianna tied the knot last Saturday with a fairytale wedding. By far one of the nicest weddings I have ever been to, and I’m not just saying that because they are family. It truly was beautiful. So much hand done work and well thought out decor made this beautiful out door wedding a one of a kind just like the couple. The wedding was held at the Graf Barn a family ran venue in Oxnard California. To see more photos from the wedding via Instagram search the hashtag #talbertlove I love these two and am so happy they found each other in life and recognize that their love is real, and sealed the deal.

A couple people here I have great respect for, Estevan Oriol and Tim Hendricks. I had the honor to sit down and be interviewed by Estevan at my brothers warehouse on my last trip to cali. I’m thankful and honored, I owe a lot to the big homies I grew up around for putting me down with the real people in the game, and teaching me to spot and stay away from the fakes and phonies. It’s days like these I feel really blessed. Stay tuned for my short Tattoo Stories episode coming soon on Sanctioned TV
I sat down with my friend Jake Szufnarowski and had a hour long conversation about my life, my Lost Art Of The Gentleman thing, tattooing, fighting and some other stuff. I’ve done a little radio but this is the first time I have done a podcast. It was cool to do it with a friend. You can get the podcast on iTunes now or on Jakes Site. Thanks for listening.

I had the honor to contribute a painting for my brothers company Violent Gentlemen’s first art show / season opener party. Who better to paint than Wayne Gretzky aka “The great one” who is credited with popularizing hockey in California, after his years with the Kings. It was fun painting a subject matter I’ve never really painted, hockey. (more…)
Back from the dead is a great new song by Skyler Grey featuring the homie Travis Barker and also Big Sean. I love how the music video was shot, good concept for the lyrics and visually very cool.
When I tattoo old friends its really interesting because they have some “vintage” Luke work usually and doing new work up against that older stuff is a bit of a contrast and a visual timeline. My friend Rob Ruiz is one of my dearest friends and in a way I credit him for not following in a gang related lifestyle that was prominent where we were growing up. But thats a story for another day. Here we have his hand and a somewhat awkward space that I think we filled perfectly if I do say so myself.
I’m very honored to announce that I will be tattooing non stop at Oliver Peckers friday the 13th annual tattoo marathon this friday starting at 12am. See you there.
One of the ideas of getting a 13 tattoo is that getting one tattooed on you wards off bad luck because it tricks bad luck as it approaches and thinks you already have it, in turn making it good luck.
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
