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. Rob Ruiz is his name and I owe a lot to him, his friendship has helped mold me into the man I am today, so like I said it was a great honor. 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.
My friend Evan Dennis directed this new Chris Richardson video “Joy and Pain” featuring Tyga and yours truly…for Cash Money records. Its always good to see my man Evan Dennis in action, he has a real knack for the director bit and a strong vision when it comes to his work…I don’t listen to a lot of R&B these days but Chris is a real stand up guy and that made me appreciate his singing ability even more… enjoy the video and my cameo ! Also its a must that you check out this Ny Adorned video Evan did called “Tradition”
Ami James has been around his shop here in new york the last couple of weeks a whole lot, it’s always good to see him here at Wooster Street. I owe him a lot and I’m proud to call him friend. Here he is sketching a idea for a back piece, super slick Ami.
My good friend turned me on to this show “Breaking Bad” and much like any great show you watch enough, you become somewhat invested in the characters that play roles in the show…So in this case it was funny/cool to see Jay Leno pull these old clips of Aaron Paul aka “Pinkman” on a old Price is Right. Also I just tattooed a “Hiesnberg” on a few of my friends who really love the show including Dave Navarro and Toby Morse.
One of my dearest friends and one of my favorite tattoo artists…Tim Hendricks will be back taking some walk-ins with us at Wooster Street Social Club aka NY Ink in Soho New York city…starting on Thursday the 16th…there is a small window of opportunity here…dont miss it…and good luck.

Today marked a very significant moment…Our dear friend Seth Abrams aka “the Goon” survived a Aneurysm and a Stroke 7 months ago…And this Runyon 5K run/walk at Yankee stadium marked for him and all of us a example of his healing progress…as he was near death…27 of his family and close friends and even the Doctor that saved his life showed up to show support and share in the joy of our dear friends health and returning mobility.
My big brother Morgwn Pennypacker draws the best gangster skulls. The reason I tattoo skulls like this once and a while, because I learned how to draw them his way over the years working with him everyday in Miami. I used this for a banner for a hollywood tattoo convention a while back. Thanks Morgwn GPFxOGBTSC
