I love that my friends are much cooler then me, and let me hang out with them. Toby Morse from H20 is a great friend and always makes sure I’m good at his shows. This tour Toby, Adam, Todd, Todd, and Rusty are touring with some very popular bands and personal friends, Alkaline Trio and New Found Glory. I was lucky enough to see H20 at the new soma last week and now in NY, if I’m lucky I will catch them at least one more time this tour. Here are a few pics with friends at the NY show. Toby, Travie, and OG Hector…and I. Thank you to all my friends, for your friendship. we are all we got.
Lostartofthegentleman now has over 4000 followers since we started its own Instagram account almost 9 weeks ago. It’s nice to see it blossom and be followed by good people that enjoy the post on being a gentleman, morality, sexuality, how to treat a woman, and things of that nature. Thank you to all the men and women that support. Bless. #LostArtOfTheG #lag

Every once and a while I accidentally come across a hit song, and just love it and usually a few weeks after everyone else. Royals by Lorde is one of those songs.
“that kind of lux just ain’t for us, we crave a different kind of buzz”
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.
