The PMA Machine

June 3rd, 2014 | Posted by admin in Lost art of the Gentleman | Press | Reference | Videos - (Comments Off)

IMG_9711 Coming Soon ~ The PMA machine, brought to you by @lukewessman and @timhendricks. $100 from every sale of a limited edition PMA Machine will go to a foundation, charity or good cause, each quarter year we will pick a new one to donate to. This quarter will be onelifeonechance.com. OLOC’s mission is to engage and inspire elementary, middle and high school students to make healthy choices and live a Drug Free life. This is what PMA means to us: PMA is a acronym for Positive Mental Attitude. For us it traces back to a book from 1960 by Napoleon Hill called  “Success through a Positive Mental Attitude” by way of our dear friend @tobymorse (lead singer of H2O). We have our whole bodies full of tattoos, some profound statements, some mark great journeys, memorials, or just great moments, but the PMA tattoo is something special. It is useful in our daily lives as we find ourselves with may moments and interactions that desire one of two choices, positivity or negativity. So we get PMA tattooed on us, it isn’t necessarily because we are happy and super positive all the time, no, we get it to give ourselves a constant reminder that we have a choice. Choose PMA, it’s always the best choice.

Tonight I sit down with Oliver, Dave, and Chris to help judge this weeks episode of  Inkmaster.   I have a love hate relationship with tattoo “reality” shows.  Like many of my peers its hard to see our beloved profession dumbed down to be consumed by the masses for entertainment, for that I hate it.  But I love how it has helped some of my dear friends.

I would have loved to have been on a earlier episode where I could have really went off on the bad work being done.  But at this stage of the competition, only six artist left, and they are all good tattooers.  At this point it was really just nit picking the details as all the tattoos were great.  Tune in next week to see what I say.

The Big Egg Hunt NY is coming to an end.  You are now able to bid on this thing on the website.  The very special thing about this one is, in over 15 years of painting I have done my best to never sell and any original artwork.  I have painted tirelessly for over 15 years very consistently.  Now since this one is for charity and out of my hands its a Luke Wessman original for sale, one of the very few. at the moment its only at 600$ which is nothing for such a unique art piece.  It is a little big and hard to hang on your wall, but its a true art collectors dream.
