I started the #lostartofthegentleman (Instagram /Twitter/Tumblr) because I’m a old fashion romantic who believes in Morality, Integrity, and treating women with Respect. I have a Mother, I have a young Sister, and young Nieces. I don’t believe men have many positive role models. At a young age they learn that sleeping with as many women as they can, objectifying, lying to, misleading, and mistreating women is a manly trait, or at least “cool.” I believe it is not, I believe it is cowardly and creepy. Disrespecting your woman is disrespecting yourself. Don’t get me wrong if you’re single by all means enjoy ! but I say do so tactfully and respectfully. #stayclassy #LAG Thank you David Yellen for this timeless photo.
From Left to right Lindsey Carmichael, Chris Stuart, Dan Smith, Tim Hendricks …I am very proud to call this group of gentleman friends and fellow tattooers.

This was one of a few favorite moments from the “Left To Right” art show, it was a moment I actually sat down for a second and took a minute with a few dear friends. Sabina Kelly is one of those dear friends. She is a very lovely hard working mother of three, whom I’ve grown to have great respect and admiration for. Sabina is a non stop traveling international Pin Up Model, as well as a host/judge of a television show called Best Ink on the Oxygen network, and a all around great human. I hope the very best for her in all her endeavors and I am proud to call her friend.
I recently had the pleasure and honor of tattooing this gentleman’s hand. Aaron Grenia senior stylest of Prive Salon New york. I concider it a great honor to tattoo anyone who works with their hands and publicly for that matter. Also Aaron has been tattooed by a couple of my favorite tattooers and just adding to his collection with the likes of Kahlil Rintye is a honor. Great meeting you Aaron, till next time , be well.
I don’t wear all black much, but I like it, slimming. Congrats to Obama for defeating Romney, I like Obama as front man of our country.
PS yes I know he’s half…
Very few people in this world do I deeply and truly respect, Aly is one of the few. Alyasha personifies pure, authentic, american style, if you want to talk about fashion and stlye, and he’s a man of high standards and principles if you want to talk character, which is lacking in todays society. Cool video for the Posture Foundation. (more…)
