We got mad love for both coast. I did this California/New York tattoo on my big brother Toby Morse. From East to West FTTW.

Don’t miss the chance to see this show tonight in Brooklyn, its free ! But rumor has it, It is going to be more then a full house. Good luck getting in. RSVP here > Vans House parties
I find it hard to have respect for the youngsters that don’t have any respect for the process. I understand the idea of wanting to have all your visible spots tattooed first, I mean who doesn’t want to look “cool” as fast as possible. And thats your prerogative, but at least now you know how its seen by those in the know. But here is the deal, things are not respected when they are not earned, and then its seen more as a trend, getting your neck or hands tattooed too soon makes you look like your trying to hard, it makes you look like a poser. The time, the work, and the process is what gives you that respect that you kids are looking for by doing it, and when you go through it the right way you’ll respect it more for yourself and people will respect you more, because they will see what you have went through to get to that point. It wont just be the image, it will be you. Its like standing at the finish line with out running the race.
Thanks Tim Hendricks for this great visual example. your the best.
Ps In the past we used to call hand and neck tattoos “Job Stoppers” and thats a whole other issue, of course society is changing and much more excepting but this issue is still a pertinent factor.
I must have heard this at least ten years ago, I feel the messages every time I listen. It may be old but the message is very pertinent. Play this for your kids, play this for yourself.
”Don’t worry about the future. Or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubble gum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind, the kind that blind side you at 4 PM on some idle Tuesday.”
