I have always thought there is a strong connection between tattooing and cooking. A chef much like a tattooer is an artist and in most cases passionate about their product.
Started this one on Chad from North Carolina. It’s always a great honor to tattoo someone who, appreciates your personal style, and travels far to get tattooed by you. Thanks Chad.
The Virgin de Guadalupe is one of may favorite tattoos. I have two different versions on myself.
I’m really looking forward to checking this one out. One of my favorite artist. “Released 20 years ago on April 19, 1994, Nas’ Time is Illmatic has remained one of the most influential hip hop albums of all time. Tracing the roots of Nas’ influence from his formative years in Queensbridge, New York, as the son of a jazz musician idolizing the early pioneers of New York hip hop, director One9’s immersive, illuminating documentary explores the roots of one of hip hop’s enduring masterworks.”- Cara Cusumano Tribeca Film Festival
When I was in California this last trip, I made a point to get out in the water no matter how shitty the waves were, and they were shitty. Despite the surf being flat Tim, Brian, and myself had back to back to back sunset surf sessions, and just had the best time. Surfing just like life is always better with a good attitude regardless of the surf. Friendship reigns supreme.
Although my new exclusive shop is not officially open yet, I did end up finishing off my dear friend Sheldon’s sleeve on Saturday. The private studio doesn’t have a name yet and the location will never be made public. You will have to be a friend, or a friend of a friend to be able to get tattooed here, and It’s not that I’m “too cool” to make public, it’s that my clients are. #firstdollar
