I had the pleasure of tattooing my friend Jamie from Scotland today, I was a long session, 6 hours to be exact, but since he came from “across the pond” I don’t mind going the distance. Great client, now friend. We finished his other arm last year and are just about finished with this one. I don’t get to do this pointalism style that often, I think due to the guys who “specialize” in it, I love the look and feel of it and was happy to do it all day today. (more…)
Over the years I have refrained from doing art work for people and companies just for money alone. I always want to get behind people and brands I actually believe in or like. I’m down for the homie Travis Barker and back his company Famous on the strength of his character. I’m honored to put my name with his for this collaboration project coming up. Him and I both represent Self Made / Dues Paid and have for some time now, its great to come together on this. Famous Family Respect

It is my favorite thing in the world to have a room full of loved ones. I flew home to cali this year to ring in the new year and spend my birthday with the most important people in my world, I’d say it was a success. Thank you to all my friends and family for taking the time to break bread with me on the day I was born. I feel very loved and I love all of you, thanks again for coming out.
What a great way to kick off the new year. Some of California’s cleanest and meanest lowriders came out for the Majestics Sante Fe Dam car show this year. It was a beautiful day, warm, and sunny with rich green grass surrounding the parking lots where most of the beautiful cars were lined up. I had the best time strolling around with my friends checking out all the rides and getting some ideas for my own lowrider.

While I was in California I stopped at Hurley to visit with my friend Ryan Hurley. He showed me this amazing Ed Hardy painting of a tiger he bought from Ed recently. Its a very large piece and a very important piece for any art collector. I felt fortunete to get a peak of this master piece as Ryan was measuring it for the framer. Ed Hardy is one of the most important men in tattooing and has played a huge role in its merge with the art world. He is a living legend. Thanks you Ed. (I think this thing was close to 4′x12′)
