Positive mental attitude!
Look in my eyes
Tell me what you see
No trace of ignorance
Inside of me
Free from guilt
Proud of the friendships
That I’ve built
Think positive PMA!
Live positive PMA!
Act positive PMA!
Positive mental attitude!
Positive mental attitude!
Ami was doing this small “pop up” event in the Empire hotel across from the Lincoln Center during this months “Fashion Week” or as I like to call it “Fashion Weak” Ami invited me to do a little tattooing with him there. Im a single man these days and I never get tired of being surrounded by super models, who are partaking in fashion weak events such as this one all over New York City, also its nice to get off Wooster street for a change. Thanks Ami #FTM
I did a couple tattoos. The first one was on Joshua David Stein the newly appointed editor and chief for Blackbook. I found Joshua to be very pleasant, and for the sake of the tattoo, very easy going. He has been tattooed by a few tattooers that I admire, so it was a pleasure to add a small piece to his collection. Its always great to share a canvas with your peers. Thanks Joshua, Pleasure to meet you and good luck with your new job.
The second was on the lovely Neon Hitch (her real name rivals my older brothers, Eventide for uniqueness) We actually started at the Empire Hotel but do to chaos and time, we hopped a cab down to 43 wooster street “Ny Ink” to finish up in peace. Although the tattoos I did on her were small they were very meaningful and it was cool spending some time with such a Og Gypsy like Neon.
Nice meeting you Neon, best of luck in the music business, and safe travels about. #green
Toby and his band H2O has put in so much work over the years with the punk rock scene, the straight edge lifestyle, PMA lifestyle, and with his non profit One Life One Chance program, he officially makes a positive difference with the kids at schools everywhere. Kids these days need way more role models like this man. I love this video and the intro from Michael Rapaport is great.
Thanks Toby Morse and the rest of H2O for promoting respect, honor, positive living, and friendship, all these years. Nothing but Respect Toby, Im honored to call you friend. PMA all day brother.
LYD- original crew.
During this trip to California I put a little tattoo on CM Punk in our friend Toby’s office up in Los Angeles. CM Punk was the last member of the LYD- Crew (our crew started in NYC last year after the 6 of us went to see “Into the Abyss” one night, I personally didnt love the movie, but I love the message we took from it ) to get his tat. The circle is now complete.
Our #LYD- Crew = Seth aka Goon, Myself, Toby, CM Punk, Jere, and Jake #PMA #OLOC
What is LYD <
I met John Forte through a close mutual friend Aly, they grew up in the same part of Brooklyn New York together. Aly brought John in the Wooster Street Social Club tattoo shop in Soho a few months back, for me to do a tattoo on John’s forearm. We became friends from that point on.
John is very well known for co writing and producing several songs on the Fugees 1996 multi platinum Grammy winning album “The Score”. Then John went on to form Refugee Camp All Stars with Pras in 1997. And then embarked on a solo career in 1998.
John then ran into some serious legal problems that put him behind bars for about 7 years. Since then John has been playing, writing, and traveling the world doing and planing big things. Smarter now then ever with more experience and a clearer vision of success John is a force to be reckoned with. Its a honor to call him friend and I thank Aly for introducing us. “We will make it work”
Check out his newest video, shot here in NYC ”Drift on”
