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.

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.

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.

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.  Juliette  Lewis and Toby Morse “Natural Born Friendships”
