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.
I love this picture my friend Jason Norton took of “Sam Bam” and I in my 66′ Impala. California Love
My friend Fernando Mazza is from Brazil, he has been spending this past month in town and has become a friend and client. Fernando is the cousin of my friend Rodrigo who works with me at Wooster Social. I was really impressed with his work and it was a honor to put some of mine on him. He came to Ny to work on a project for a magazine called Mens Moments Magazine and I’m proud to say I was apart. We shot a full day at Wooster aka NYInk. It was nice to be shot by a friend which whom I have respect for.
I had a nice surprise this evening, The Game posted a pic of himself chilling on his Bentley wearing my Self Made Dues Paid crew neck sweatshirt on his Instagram. And I only made a few of these joints in red, I feel real blessed to have the west coast G rep one. Thanks Game. And thanks to my brother Toby for lacing him up with it. Friends are like family.
