My first real job was Beekeeping.  So I was looking at the website of the amazing photographer David Yellen, the photographer who shot my Freshly Inked cover that just came out, and came across this beautiful photo that brought back so many memories.  A special Thanks to David for really going above and beyond to make sure the Freshly Inked cover picture was legit.   “No bees no honey, no work no money”

Emily-Senko-Treats-10

Every now and again I look at my blog and I think, its time to post a picture of a beautiful woman,  as the pictures of myself, my tattoos, my adventures need a little softening up.  So I surf the internet a bit and find a picture that jumps out at me.  Here we have a lovely model named Emily Senko, I love her look…just beautiful. Pure art.  I’m sorry I don’t know the name of the photographer or her parents to give proper credit.

Cover Of Freshly Inked Tattoo Magazine

I was pleasantly surprised yesterday with a sneak peak of the September issue of Freshly Inked Magazine, set the hit stands next week.  I am very pleased with the picture, and honored to be on the cover.

I always joke that the fashion world has shown more love then my own industry, and then this cover happened out of the blue.  But I’ve always said “I don’t represent tattooing, and tattooers…I represent myself, my friends, my family, and hard work”   Life is more about personal relationship, then a culture or a career.  Be good to people and good things happen.

The end of a era and the beginning of a new empire. On this day Tim and Brian came with me to clear out all my things from Luckys Tattoo Parlor in San Diego, where I learned how to tattoo (the original Dave Gibson’s Lucky’s tattoo parlor) and held a partnership with a very old friend for around 10 years.

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.
