Vile Gash.

Let's see if anyone can guess who this one's for. Got it done in one day.

Rennie.

Got a tattoo from Mike Rennie over at Absolute in Richmond. Glad he could fit me into his schedule.



Easyrider.




Brian was busy as usual on some big Japanese style stuff.

P. Rogers on a visit to Tom Beasley's shop circa 1980's.

These photos were in an album owned by George Archer... I'm not exactly sure how he got them but they are amazing, I wish I could sit down and scan all the awesome photos that they contain.





Legendary.

Move Forward.

I went back to Virginia this past week, and was shown to some of the best hospitality I've ever recieved... again! I couldn't have asked for a better host than George Archer and his family, I had a lot of fun and felt like part of the family the whole time!

This is the studio that's connected to George's garage that I stay in when I'm in town. I rented a Yaris, which is what Rich drives, shit was tight.


The man, the legend, the confusion.



Mario had some shit hanging up.



Shitty cellphone picture of George putting in work.



Even worse picture of the awesome tattoo he did on me.





I got a new Seth Ciferri shader from George.







Chinese take out box that the old Adam Ciferri bulldogs came in.

Not the Colonel, the Captain.




Baby's on a hellride.



Jason Boyer flash sheet.



I copped this painting off of George. I'd been admiring it since I first saw it.





It was an awesome time.

Turbo.



Turbo sent me these paintings on my cell phone a bit back... pretty f'n sweet. Hope he doesn't mind me posting them, he still owes me a painting... and a tattoo trade!

True Grit.



When did it become more about who you associate with than who you actually are? Why does it seem that it's more about the style of work you do than the quality? Or maybe it's always been this way and I've got it wrong.

Tattooing is changing, but a lot seems to stay consistent throughout the years. I'm no different, just a drop in the bucket and I know it all too well.

In the coming few days or maybe weeks I'll post some paintings and maybe a tattoo or few. I've got new stickers I'm doing and new shirts for myself and I'm also printing the new Bake and Destroy shirts for Natalie so I'll post that stuff too once they're done. I'm going to Richmond again to visit friends and get tattooed so there'll be a bigger post about that once that happens. So I guess I'm just saying to stay tuned and bear with me, I've been really damn busy with work and my other interests to really spend too much time on this thing.
