Oliver Pecks Friday 13th Tattoo Marathon Dallas

I’m very honored to announce that I will be tattooing non stop at Oliver Peckers friday the 13th annual tattoo marathon this friday starting at 12am. See you there.

One of the ideas of getting a 13 tattoo is that getting one tattooed on you wards off bad luck because it tricks bad luck as it approaches and thinks you already have it, in turn making it good luck.

Found it ! So my brother Brian and our nephew Jake were in town the last few days, it was Jakes first time in NY and we were doing as much tourist things as possible.  Also on the agenda was find the new September issue of “Freshly Inked Magazine” with my mug on the cover.  We found it at the 3rd place we looked, a Barnes & Noble, they had a stack of five, so we decided to leave one.   I don’t know if you ever had your face on the cover of a magazine at a book store or a newsstand, but let me tell you its a pretty great feeling.  I’m very thankful and happy to see some fruits of my labor, I’m blessed.  Thanks again to Freshly Inked mag for letting me wear a suit, thanks to all my friends who always support me and wish me well, I’m nothing without you guys.   It makes me proud to make my friends proud. We are all self made.

Cover Of Freshly Inked Tattoo Magazine

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.
