Chuck Taylor All Stars

March 6th, 2012 | Posted by admin in Photos | Reference - (Comments Off)

I’ve been wearing them since I was a kid, not because they were cool, not because the cool punk rock kids wore them, not even really because the OG’s in the hood wear them, but it was because it was one of the shoe brands I could afford as a kid. I never got those black Nike Flights with the gold letters on the tongue I wanted (I had a picture ripped out of a magazine of them, in my wallet for a bit, I think they were around 90$, ha, yeah right, not then)  Instead what happened was I got a love for Chuck Taylor’s with fat laces and I don’t plan on ever not wearing them.  Although I do switch it up from time to time, theses days, Converse will always be my shoe.

T.G.O.D.

I still get mine at 25$ at my indoor swap meet back home.  At the same spot I get my favorite street tacos, fresh pina and watermelon juice, and packs of white tees.

The link is to the newer one of the two indoor swap meets I used to go to as a kid.  They are a couple blocks away from each other.  #showyourmath

Luke Wessman’s Max Fish Art Show LES NYC

Luke Wessman's art show Max Fish 2/21/12

So I have been waiting to do a little post on my art show at Max Fish last week , but wanted to gather some photos that were taken by  friends that night.

I didn’t move to New York with plans of having an art show, I moved here to tattoo at “Wooster Street” aka NY INK, and try to grow as a person and a artist in search of new adventures and opportunities.  Having said that Max Fish was the only place I would have had an art show, the place just felt right from the beginning, Max Fish just has good mojo, and its my understanding that its hard to get one there, so it all working out the way it did, I just have to say, it was meant to be.   I am so humbled by the love and support all my new NYC family showed me, coming out and showing so much love and support.   Not being from New York, only spending less then a year here, and having such a amazing turn out, it almost makes my eyes water, almost.  Thank you all who came out I am honored by your support and friendships. 

Respectfully,

Luke

C/S G/P

Here is some photos from friends that night, and a few new paintings.

PS : A special thanks to my family members Rob, Brian, and Diana for coming out just for the show, I love you guys. And Aly, I love you too brother.

…on to the next project

Swallow and rose foot tattoo Luke Wessman Soho NYC

February 17th, 2012 | Posted by admin in Tattoo - (Comments Off)

swallow rose foot tattoo luke wessman

Fun foot tattoo today. Swallows are one of my favorite birds to tattoo, and roses are my favorite flower to tattoo,  either are a classic and look great if done right.

The meaning of a swallow tattoo. The one meaning I have always heard, and chosen to believe, was that they signify for a sailor a doing a certain miles at sea.  A sailor with one swallow had travelled over 5,000 nautical miles, and a sailor with two swallows had travelled 10,000 nautical miles.  Traveling these great distances was extremely difficult and dangerous in the early days of sailing, so one or more swallow tattoos denoted a very experienced and valuable sailor. It is also legend that if the sailor drowns, the swallows will carry their soul to heaven, representing freedom and hope.

Another coined term in the UK for the swallow tattoo on the hands is a symbolism of a prison sentence from an ex-con to the meaning of “done your bird, done your time”.

 But you do not need to be a sailor to get one of these great birds tattooed, just wanting a cool tattoo is a good enough reason, and a rose tattoo is one of the best tattoos you can get in my opinion, “always in bloom” timeless classic.
