I had such a short trip last weekend to Miami, and the main reason of the trip was to go to support my friend Chris Nunez with his new tattoo shop opening. Hand Crafted But it was Art Basel that weekend and I got to pull away for a bit to check out the “Wynwood” district which always has amazing walls painted by some of the most talented graffiti and street artist, I really like this one, strong message.

Dave Navarro on his radio show “Dark Matter” Featuring Oliver Peck and Tattoo Forrest discussing Inkmaster contestant jamie and his elimination. Dave quotes me on quoting a Mahatma Gandhi quote ”To believe in something, and not live it is dishonest” on the radio show, thanks Dave.
The tattooing is a very special unique community, tattooing is a job but it also is very much a lifestyle and a passion. Our friend Forrest and when I say “Our” I mean the real tattoo community, and when I say “real tattoo community” I mean the tattooers that have given their lives to tattooing completely. Yes, the final product, the tattoo is very important as the client will wear it for the rest of his/ her life, but part of the tattoo is the energy the soul put into it by the artist. Now if you sell a product that you don’t believe in then you are doing a great injustice to the craft of tattooing to the soul of tattooing and in turn the tattoos you do on people. You are not and will not be recognized as a tattooer if you do tattoos and do not have any on you. A bald wig salesman, a virgin sex therapist, a toothless dentist, a atheist priest… Mahatma Gandhi said it best ”To believe in something, and not live it is dishonest”
Support the the real tattoo community not some culture vultures like the jamies on inkmaster.
GO HERE AND “LIKE” COBRA AND SUPPORT THE REAL TATTOOERS LEFT IN THE WORLD.
