I will be spending some time with some of my good friends including Chris Nunez and Ross Nagle in the next few weeks. First I’m paying a short visit to my dear friends at Allstar Ink Tattoo in Limerick City Ireland. The only other shop I would visit besides Classic Ink in Dublin….
…Then we are off to Notting Hill London where our good friend Ami James will be opening his Love Hate Social Club Tattoo Parlor.
I will be working the opening week with Ross Nagle, Ami James, Chris Nunez, Tommy Montoya, Grant Cobb and Charlie Roberts. It’s going to be a mad house. Make sure you get booking your appointments to avoid disappointment. Also there will be some of the best tattooers from around the globe rotating through the shop including all from above plus Freddy Corbin, Greg Christian, Darren Brass, BJ Betts, Marco Serio and plenty more.

Very few people in this world do I deeply and truly respect, Aly is one of the few. Alyasha personifies pure, authentic, american style, if you want to talk about fashion and stlye, and he’s a man of high standards and principles if you want to talk character, which is lacking in todays society. Cool video for the Posture Foundation. (more…)

I was just in San Diego again and I had the honor of tattooing one of my oldest friends, Who happens to be a world class chef.

He is head chef at a sushi restaurant called Harney Sushi in Oceanside, California, Rob is one of the hardest working people I know and well on his way to becoming a household name.
