A few of the many hockey tattoos that were done at the Violent Gentleman booth this year at Musink. George Parros, candle, mask and roses, drop em gloves, and flash.
I had the great honor to spend the day with Horiyoshi 3 on his birthday in Yokohama last week. I consider that day an extremely important day that I won’t forget. I came up in tattooing in the 90’s before internet and google. We had books, magazines, and stories… Horiyoshi 3 was in all three of those things, so I knew of him from the beginning of my tattoo career. I am thankful for the friendships I have made along my lifes journey and I’m thankful that I keep making more. Thank You David, Yoshi, and Horiyoshi for your friendship.
I had the pleasure of tattooing my friend the lovely Abbie Cornish today at The Summertown Inn. She is a talented actor and singer. Check her music out Here and other works at a big screen near you.
I had the pleasure of lining up a few of my favorite artist for Inked Magazine to paint some of my all time favorite shoes with me, the Chuck Taylor.

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.
