Bring Back Our Girls

May 9th, 2014 | Posted by admin in Artist | Celebrities | Friends | LostArtOfTheG - (Comments Off)

IMG_9527 I’m not usually too involved in politics, but I do try to stay current.  And this young girls being kidnaped thing really touched me.  When bad things happen to women or children it  always seems extra severe.  Bad things happening to innocent people in general always upsets me.

Every time I’m in LA I gotta bump Tupac, I always feel his music, but especially when I’m in LA.  Tupac will always be on my top 5.  Truly one of the greats.

Tonight I sit down with Oliver, Dave, and Chris to help judge this weeks episode of  Inkmaster.   I have a love hate relationship with tattoo “reality” shows.  Like many of my peers its hard to see our beloved profession dumbed down to be consumed by the masses for entertainment, for that I hate it.  But I love how it has helped some of my dear friends.

I would have loved to have been on a earlier episode where I could have really went off on the bad work being done.  But at this stage of the competition, only six artist left, and they are all good tattooers.  At this point it was really just nit picking the details as all the tattoos were great.  Tune in next week to see what I say.

The morning after the #tapastattoos event at the W hotel union sq.  Sergi and I had to fulfill our part of the bargain.  He got the tattoo that won the vote from the night before and I had to apply it.  It was great working with the W, its event staff and Sergi.  A great progressive event for a great progressive company.

Eat Ink Book Release

March 31st, 2014 | Posted by admin in Artist | Celebrities | Events | Friends | Press - (Comments Off)

I am very pleased to be a small part of this Eat Ink book.  Here I am tattooing my friend and renewed chef Rick Tramontovideo  

I have always thought there is a strong connection between tattooing and cooking.  A chef much like a tattooer is an artist and in most cases passionate about their product.

Although my new exclusive shop is not officially open yet, I did end up finishing off my dear friend Sheldon’s sleeve on Saturday.  The private studio doesn’t have a name yet and the location will never be made public.  You will have to be a friend, or a friend of a friend to be able to get tattooed here, and It’s not that I’m “too cool” to make public, it’s that my clients are. #firstdollar
