I had the pleasure of tattooing my friend Jamie from Scotland today, I was a long session, 6 hours to be exact, but since he came from “across the pond” I don’t mind going the distance. Great client, now friend. We finished his other arm last year and are just about finished with this one. I don’t get to do this pointalism style that often, I think due to the guys who “specialize” in it, I love the look and feel of it and was happy to do it all day today. (more…)

Here is some of my ring collection. It takes time to find ones that fit and work with your personal style, and I seem to like more of the uncommon ones. I really like the look of the brass ones I have (although they turn your finger green) If you are looking for some good big mens rings, biker rings, here are a couple places to look Witness Company and Pnut Jewelry
Over the years I have refrained from doing art work for people and companies just for money alone. I always want to get behind people and brands I actually believe in or like. I’m down for the homie Travis Barker and back his company Famous on the strength of his character. I’m honored to put my name with his for this collaboration project coming up. Him and I both represent Self Made / Dues Paid and have for some time now, its great to come together on this. Famous Family Respect
The internet has a way of bringing like minded people together, and for that I must comment that this social media generation is not all a total loss. Thanks for coming down from Canada for the tattoo and the proof yet again that Canadians are the greatest people. Good to see you and I’m sure I’ll see you again. Thank you for all the kind words and sorry about the damaged “clothing article”
Today I had the pleasure of tattooing the lovely Jhene Aiko. She was doing a shoot with Complex Magazine, and choose to do it with me. She is so sweet and a pleasure to work with, not to mention one of the most talented singers of our time. She was coming off a great performance with Drake on SNL the night before in NY. If you haven’t heard her music, do yourself a favor and listen. > YouTube
