Luke Leaving New York City

November 7th, 2014 | Posted by admin in Artist | Celebrities | Events | Friends | lifestyle | Press | Videos - (Comments Off)

Goodbye ny

I’ve spent the last four years of my life in New York City.  It has been some of the greatest years or my life to date, full of exciting adventurers, great new friendships,  stories I can’t tell, monthly house guest, and a great respect for new york and its people.  So moving on to my next adventure I thought I’d put together a little goodbye video for the few people that pay attention to my life and world.  Paying my respects, if you will.  So I asked my dear friend Jake if he would hold my iPhone for me while I say a quick goodbye, but Jake being the amazing visionary he is, he was like ” fuck that lets do something cooler”  So we spent a little more time on it, and filmed some stuff over the last year in our very spare spare time.  Jake has found time in his busy life to shoot and edit this project.  This is a picture of him putting time on the edit.  I can’t wait to see what he puts together, and I’ll be excited to show you guys. Thank you Jake / Think First Media  I have a lot of respect for your work and more importantly you as a person. Thank you.

Also, I think see you later New York is more appropriate.  I plan on plenty of back and forth visits.

Although I wouldn’t consider myself a “star” it has a nice ring to it, and cool to read in a headline.  Style.com  just posted a wonderful article on me written by the lovely Sarah Gidick founder of a site called PFW (A successful growing site geared toward ladies)  Thank you PFW and Styledotcom

A great write up and photo essay on yours truly in one of the best luxury and fashion blogs in the world. The Coveteur.

When I started in tattooing in the late 90’s I made it my life,  I figured if this is what I’m doing for a living I had to go all in.  As I grew up on my own since I was about 15  I was forced to have a strong work ethic.  I made tattooing my passion,  even though my main passion was to be stable and not broke.  As a child my mother made my clothes or bought them at the thrift shops,  I didn’t feel embarrassment about that until my early teens.  Luckily I grew up around the younger brothers of gang members and fell into some of the dress codes that were clean, cheap, and coordinated.  Fancy brands and hot trends were out of my finacial reach so I found a presentalble smooth style that worked for me as I started to make my own money.  Converse, Dickies, plain AAA tee shirts, saved the day.   I was lucky to grow up around a lot of well dressed and always stylish black dudes and owe a lot of my eye for style to them. Lorenzo, Kenneth, Mikey P, Lawan…

Fast  forward to now, NYC a inspiring place for style and fashion.  I’ve been involved with sportswear and fashion only slightly the last 20 years but always have pay a little attention to it as I feel how you dress and personal style is a form of art, mixing colors, textures, and patterns.  I love the freedom of style, especially in ny.  Anyway Im rambling,  I just want to thank the good people of the Coveteur for the brilliant photo essay and write up.  I love it.
