During my busy trip to California this time I took a min to say hello to my friend Franco at Vatican Studios. I was also happy to see my friends Sabina Kelley and Oropeza Ray who happened to be there. Good people right here doing big things.

What up y’all, for those who don’t know who I am, my name is Thomas Morgan from HB Tattoo in Southern California. As most of you already know, on November 21st the Amsterdam Tattoo Museum was taken away from all of us, doors locked forbidding access and collection taken hostage! The Amsterdam Tattoo Museum is the first museum that is totally dedicated to tattooing. It shows the world’s largest tattoo collection, collected by Henk (Hanky Panky) Schiffmacher. Fighting tooth and nail along side of Henk is his lovely wife Louise ‘The Queen’ Schiffmacher. In the midst of their year-long battle to save the Museum, Louise recently got news that she has liver cancer and needs a transplant. (Letter from Louise: http://ow.ly/gQj7f.) Now they need our support more than ever. That’s where we come in! We have recently teamed up with an Non-Profit Foundation based here in Huntington Beach, CA called “Fxck Cancer” a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Together, I think all of us in the tattoo community, along with Fxck Cancer can raise the funds needed to help out Louise, Henk and the Foundation… (more…)
The best thing about a rose tattoo is that they never get old, they are timeless. Rose tattoos are some of my personal favorites. This is a pic of some roses I freehanded on a guy from Germany years back and he came into the shop the other day at Wooster I took this pic. A lot of tattoos that some people do these days look real nice and fancy in the picture day of, but none of the new school no outline crap will maintain design integrity as nice as tattoo style tattoos.
Every month our dear friend Tommy Montoya comes back to Wooster Social and works, sometimes bringing his equally talented brother Mikey with him. We had a “last meal” dinner to see them off till next time at one of our favorite restaurants “Sons Of Essex” in the lower east side, In this pic we have from right to left Tim, Dave, Damian, Dukes lady, Mikey, Duke, Tommy, Jason, Balla, Evan, and yours truly.

2 Chainz “Birthday Song” feat. Kanye West. I never thought I would post a 2 Chains song on my blog as the modern/ignorant hip hop has never really appealed to me, I’m more of a Tupac and Wu-Tang era guy myself. (more…)
A rose tattoo I made the other day at my home base Wooster Street Social Club in soho Nyc. I always like to say “always in bloom” when I do a rose tattoo.
You really stumble upon so much when you surf the interweb, I was just surfing a bit and I was just thinking it was about time to add a little female art to my blog as it has been too long. Here we have model, Viktoria Sekrier, photographed by Jenny Brough from Nyachii’s Blog I really love this Photographers work, I love the style and the vivid colors she brings out. Beautiful.
