A Ghetto Protected panther tattoo I made the other day.  Over the last 8 years I have spent a lot of time working and hanging with my dear friend Morgwn Pannypacker,  it is due to him that I do this style tattoos sometimes his gangster skull guys and gangster panther heads are the best.  Many people try, including myself to do them as cool as him but more often then not they/we fall short.  If you ever get the chance to get tattooed by Morgwn do yourself a favor get a GP skull guy from him.  If not him I’ll do my best to do him justice respectfully as I have seen some of his secrets up close over the years.  I just want everyone to know He is the OG. GP Family.  Love you my friend.

Found it ! So my brother Brian and our nephew Jake were in town the last few days, it was Jakes first time in NY and we were doing as much tourist things as possible.  Also on the agenda was find the new September issue of “Freshly Inked Magazine” with my mug on the cover.  We found it at the 3rd place we looked, a Barnes & Noble, they had a stack of five, so we decided to leave one.   I don’t know if you ever had your face on the cover of a magazine at a book store or a newsstand, but let me tell you its a pretty great feeling.  I’m very thankful and happy to see some fruits of my labor, I’m blessed.  Thanks again to Freshly Inked mag for letting me wear a suit, thanks to all my friends who always support me and wish me well, I’m nothing without you guys.   It makes me proud to make my friends proud. We are all self made.

The Bird Of Paradise  so-named for its remarkable bird-like appearance when in bloom, is a favorite among horticulturists and can be found growing in gardens worldwide.  I don’t tattoo these that often, it was fun to do this one and no better skin then some pale leg skin.

One of the first tattoos I did in Western Australia, I call it  “a rose from the future” because it is a day later here in Australia.  It’s been a honor to hang at Five Star Tattoo here in Fremantle, WA with the legendary Ricky Luder and his great crew!
