I grew up working as a young kid, My brother and I would collect cans on at the beach in my hometown of Oceanside.  At that young age I learned that hard Work Pays,  do the work get the money seemed like a no brainer.  I learned the respect for societies labor force, the men and women who work so hard to better their lives and the lives of their families, meanwhile adding to the country by all types of professions.  As a kid I knew I personally had to work hard to survive and as I got older I realized that I didn’t want to just survive I wanted to  thrive.   I learned the value of smart work mixed with hard work, and thats where I am now, working as hard and smart as I can, luckily I really like what I do.  I come form little and may never fully enjoy my success, but my family will.  Happy Labor Day  ! to all the people that work and keep this great country functioning and growing. “Work like a slave eat like a king”  (more…)

I had the pleasure of spending some time with Stalley a few months back, my good friend BJ Betts was doing some work on him at our shop in soho.  He’s a solid dude who makes great hip hop music, I back him.  I always say the real legends speak from the heart.  He speaks from the heart and is a legend in the making.

I love when my friends visit me here at Wooster Street aka Ny Ink.  I moved far away from my friends when I moved to New York two and a half years ago and I feel so lucky when my friends come stay with me at my small Lower East Side New York apartment,  and bring their friends by my shop.  Juliette  Lewis and Toby Morse “Natural Born Friendships”

Ghetto Protected Panther Tattoo

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.
