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′)

I love that my friends are much cooler then me, and let me hang out with them. Toby Morse from H20 is a great friend and always makes sure I’m good at his shows. This tour Toby, Adam, Todd, Todd, and Rusty are touring with some very popular bands and personal friends, Alkaline Trio and New Found Glory.

Toby, Travie, and OG Hector…and I. Thank you to all my friends, for your friendship. we are all we got.
Brian and Dianna tied the knot last Saturday with a fairytale wedding. By far one of the nicest weddings I have ever been to, and I’m not just saying that because they are family. It truly was beautiful. So much hand done work and well thought out decor made this beautiful out door wedding a one of a kind just like the couple. The wedding was held at the Graf Barn a family ran venue in Oxnard California. To see more photos from the wedding via Instagram search the hashtag #talbertlove I love these two and am so happy they found each other in life and recognize that their love is real, and sealed the deal.

A couple people here I have great respect for, Estevan Oriol and Tim Hendricks. I had the honor to sit down and be interviewed by Estevan at my brothers warehouse on my last trip to cali. I’m thankful and honored, I owe a lot to the big homies I grew up around for putting me down with the real people in the game, and teaching me to spot and stay away from the fakes and phonies. It’s days like these I feel really blessed. Stay tuned for my short Tattoo Stories episode coming soon on Sanctioned TV
