During this trip to California I  put a little tattoo on CM Punk in our friend Toby’s office up in Los Angeles.  CM Punk was the last member of the LYD- Crew (our crew started in NYC last year after the 6 of us went to see “Into the Abyss” one night, I personally didnt love the movie, but I love the message we took from it ) to get his tat. The circle is now complete.

Our #LYD- Crew = Seth aka Goon, Myself, Toby, CM Punk, Jere, and Jake #PMA #OLOC

My buddy from Canada does not mess around. We finished this piece the other day, all and all I think we put  maybe 10 hours in this one. The roses and doves really sealed the deal.

Day of the dead skull tattoo

January 10th, 2012 | Posted by admin in Reference | Tattoo - (Comments Off)

The “Sugar skulls” or “Calaveras de azucar” are one of my personal favorite tattoos, I love that they can be done in so many ways, Full of color, designs and life.   (The Sugar Skull tattoo was ague-ably first done or at least first made popular by my friend and tattooist Freddy Corbin from Oakland California, Temple Tattoo)

The sugar skull tradition-

Sugar art was brought to the New World by Italian missionaries in the 17th century. The first Church mention of sugar art was from Palermo at Easter time when little sugar lambs and angels were made to adorn the side altars in the Catholic Church.  Mexico, abundant in sugar production and lacking money to buy fancy imported European church decorations at the time, learned quickly from the friars how to make sugar art for their religious festivals. Clay molded sugar figures of angels, sheep and sugar skulls go back to the Colonial Period 18th century.

Sugar skulls represented a departed soul, had the name written on the forehead and was placed on the home ofrenda or gravestone to honor the return of a particular spirit. Sugar skull art reflects the folk art style of big happy smiles, colorful icing and sparkly tin and glittery adornments. Common ingredients for making sugar skulls include powdered sugar, egg white, corn syrup, vanilla, and corn starch. Typically, sugar skulls need to dry overnight or for several hours. Sugar skulls are labor intensive and made in very small batches in the homes of sugar skull makers. However, these artisans are disappearing as fabricated and imported candy skulls take their place

Ghetto Protected Crew member “Kiku”

December 25th, 2011 | Posted by admin in Friends | Photos | Tattoo - (Comments Off)

GP is Family, a Crew, a Fellowship, and an understanding.

Made up mostly of quiet giants people you may have never heard of people who are constantly pushing independently, artistically and financially …Mostly fellas who have come from very humble beginnings and should never have made it as far as we have, dudes who have made it through the ghettos in which we were raised without being jailed or killed. And have made it beyond the traditional ghetto mentality … And instead of fighting over our blocks were fighting to buy our blocks…becoming owners not renters . Leaders not followers. Through any means… violently, politically, or poetically. Not just survive bit thrive.  And when we roll though hoods we are protected because real recognizes real. Ghetto Protected.  Were out to snatch fame from the lames…and chedder from the haters.  And give game to our youngsters… So they can stop looking up to wanksters.
=G/P FAMILY= Welcomes Kiku

 

*Chairman-Morgwn Pennypacker   Vice Chairmen- Luke Wessman and  Tim Hendricks                                                                   (the only persons allowed to administer the GP)

Work in progress…”Rock of ages” one of my personal favorite tattoo images… on my friend and a extremely talented tattooer Yanni Vera I think we are at about 8 hours in to this thing and have probbly half that or less left.

Its very humbling when a tattooer who is a good tattooer and knows about good tattooing picks you to do a tattoo on them…it really is such a big compliment. so thank you Yanni for giving me the stomach my friend.

Safe travels Yanni…good seeing you in Amsterdam even though it was brief.
