I have got to get back out in the ocean. Growing up in Cali I have spent more then half my life in the ocean and these last few years in NY I have missed being able to surf everyday.
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.
“Make yourself an honest man, and then you may be sure that there is one less scoundrel in the world.”
I love this picture of my very dear friend Sabina Kelley, Beautiful woman inside and out. Freemason lamp.
Every now and again I look at my blog and I think, its time to post a picture of a beautiful woman, as the pictures of myself, my tattoos, my adventures need a little softening up. So I surf the internet a bit and find a picture that jumps out at me. Here we have a lovely model named Emily Senko, I love her look…just beautiful. Pure art. I’m sorry I don’t know the name of the photographer or her parents to give proper credit.
I was pleasantly surprised yesterday with a sneak peak of the September issue of Freshly Inked Magazine, set the hit stands next week. I am very pleased with the picture, and honored to be on the cover.
I always joke that the fashion world has shown more love then my own industry, and then this cover happened out of the blue. But I’ve always said “I don’t represent tattooing, and tattooers…I represent myself, my friends, my family, and hard work” Life is more about personal relationship, then a culture or a career. Be good to people and good things happen.
