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.

Tupac Por Vida

Tupac is one of the reasons I feel in love with Hip Hop/RAP in the early ’90.  I grew up in the struggle he spoke about, shit I identified with directly.  3 mins in on this video, on the real, aside from details of color obviously.  “a hell of a job, to have to build and empire for your family”  RIP Tupac   Self Made Dues Paying

I like to follow people on Instagram  for a few reasons:  If they are one my dear friends, I want to see what is going on with their lives, constant pictures of their dog, dinner, baby, it doesn’t matter because  they are a dear friend I love anything from them.  Now everyone  else… I like beautiful pictures, people, places, or things. I like creative captures, interesting and witty. I like beautiful women with tasteful pictures. I like cool quotes. I like good tattoos. Stuff like that.  I’m just gonna do 5 this month, and do some more of my favorite’s and why later.

Here is my list of some of the best people to follow on Instagram,  not necessarily this order. 

1.timhendricksGreat tattooer, one of the best in the world.  Pictures of black and grey tattoos, but does color tattoos perfectly also.  Great human. Very dear friend.  (552/132k/675)

2.xmanoelxnetoxOne of my favorite people in the world, positive hardcore, straight edge, vegan, gentleman, and such a amazing tattoo artist, black and gray gangster or traditional. Super Pma from Brasilia. Dear Friend. (1386/6873/166)

3.tobymorse The best example of a human, husband, father, friend, singer (H2O) Pma, straight edge, vegan.  Cool photos from at home and on tour all over the world,  A lot of musicians and Nikes, also pics from schools where he speaks to youth about positive living (onelifeonechance.com) (1465/13k/82)

4.iviwolf – This woman has such a nice visual eye for a classy picture.  To me, her photos are a great representation of a classy lady.  I like classy ladies. Great architecture, interiors, fashion and nyc photos.  I don’t know her personally, although we did have a semi awkward/pleasant bump into each other meeting once as I was walking out of a store and she was walking in at the same time, we  exchange pleasantries and went on our way.  (4215/1461/223)

5.jasonnorton- Norton is a dear friend and is a very unique individual, with a great sense of humor, kind of his own brand of humor that grows on you the longer you know him.  Amazing photos that are off from the “norm” perhaps best know for his Intersection photos. Also bull riding photos. (1243/1163/471)

DSC07124 - Version 3

This was one of a few favorite moments from the “Left To Right” art show, it was a moment I actually sat down for a second and took a minute with a few dear friends.  Sabina Kelly is one of those dear friends.   She is a very lovely hard working mother of three, whom I’ve grown to have great respect and admiration for.  Sabina is a non stop traveling international Pin Up Model, as well as a host/judge of a television show called Best Ink on the Oxygen network, and a all around great human.  I hope the very best for her in all her endeavors and I am proud to call her friend.
