A few months ago, arriving in town and ready for beer and socialite action, I discovered my knack for isolating lead to abusing of alcohal or food. This path, a dangerous midnight alley, is not as appealling as once was. I sought sollace in Night Owls, a group of loan wolfes uniting under a […]

To be able to share the sweetest moments with a couple, those first few days of being united or the annual celebration – is so grand! Being rosy cheeked myself, I am able to share into their feelings. Cheers to joy for it will have to carry one far Wisconsinites! Thank you child paster and […]

Chsnnel Howard Roarke And build. A point of Ayn Rand is to use your own strength to build masterpieces. Use your own creativity and determination and don’t make excuses. Something that detears me from working really hard is working really hard. I have to remember that bold creative changes were not made by impulse buy […]
Eva covering at it in a helpless brainiac, two people who did lighted be with their stories and their brains.
Don’t do it. Whatever you do, don’t be distracted by their cuteness and fluffy- hair charm.
This town of mountains in built on recovery. Every new kid brings a story and a heart; it’s not really everyone’s business to know yours, but it’s kind when someone shares.
Girls got math skills! Just finished a Masters in Math and finally letting go enough to travel. What a darling
I grew up with boys. Dad a coach, much of my profession hella’ lot of testosterone- but these lads? Well. They take the cake. You’re like blood-sisters This night began with The 4 agreements, but it ended up somewhere entireley. Thank you Freckles.
Lots of love! Lots of days to be celebrated but few remembered in such eloquent fashion. When a lovely hippie like couple comes strolling in, right at noon for a ‘ mini’ tattoo, one just has to smile. What is love but adventure and the celebration of a moment in time.
Homemade cards Are how i communicate. You are loved, remembered, thought of. Don’t forget how special you are; sunshine in a hand basket To grandma, the aunts, moms and sisters. We are a unity and I am thankful for everything you have given me, be it time, support, a hug or a ring. You are […]
Ever heard of lil’ dicky? No joke White jewish rapper playing the word and rhythm game. Berry berry enjoyable.

Good luck kids!
They take over a stage and it ends in disco dance moves outside the shop. Ja, darling, let it roll. Check out Via! I’ve been here a few months and already getting a woman pack- strong independent women; hard and tough yet empathetic and delightful. I wasn’t sure if I should jump back into the […]
Ace od Diamonds A collegue who becomes a friend is golden. Yes, I am glad to have my space invaded and to invade yours; want a dramatic meltdown? Sure. Can I show you a cards drink? Hella ja;) Lets tattoo the outcome
Quick change Or the long game. Been here for about 2 months and every week is either a small, lady like developement or a massive upturn- usually incured by quick reactions and lack ofadequate planning. Life is wonderful and we should not expect pleasure; but ain’t that the oil to life? WD40 Quick change
Bestie’s beasties the beautiful mountain climbers of Asheville!
Of pie I mean! Haha
You got a Dahlia? What it needs is some foxy hips. What an amazing woman. From chemistry to drugs and all the romance in between, this lady is apple pie with a kick. Can’t wait to add color!
Some people are so perceptive and masters of their own fate; the American dream is realized through hard word, ambitious undertakings, and solid partnership. I love tattooing couples and seeing how their footpathes intertwine into paved roads; human nature a rope of many threads. Thanks for discussing Life and the wee bits inbetween
What a lovely lady; quiet, pensive. Dove eyes that see and create. Thank you lady ceramic artist
It shouldn’t be that hard To grow. Unless the soil –soul—- is rocky, shallow, and not meant for more than a quick bloom I wonder always about investment; time and energy into projects, work, friendships!

Well, you have to subscribe for 6 months, but maybe you meet that dream mate! Although organic is pretty darn nice ( though not free- make sure he can afford a train ticket), it’s nice to see two lovely beeing coming together. As this Stanford chemistry grad said, if her picker was off, why not […]

Well, not just quite, but hopefully after this piece gets finished it will be! Starting a whole back piece on one dynamic dame; it will be auch a pleasure to work with you!!!
Bonus of working at a walkin shop: be prepared to draw anything; hone your skills to work under pressure- then tattoo it And we did! And it was a 2 hr blast!
Such a delightful couple, you can see how their life blossomed and developed as one should: like a mountain trekk with all the ups and downs and decadent views. Thank you guys for the great time and excellent 70’s stories- till next time!
A real 1845 koffin, no joke! And…. a who what when where soldier? Rock on peoples of the ‘woods- these mountains are breathtaking!
2 years sober From the backwoods of Alabama to the cold wiley winters of Oregan, this kid travelled down from from Michigan’s Detroit for a ‘sobering vacation with like minded friends.

Travellor tip: stick to the Hamburgs and Glasglows for your sanity. Tourist Metrpolises are grand for film […]
The American Dream Our excited Alvin finally getting his first bite: how enticing that shiny, dark cadium fruit of life appeared. And how it was! The first night in the bouroughs of Bushwick; colors of skin varrying like that of the Granny Smiths and Braeburns , but the plastic aftertaste of ‘The City’ left a […]
Dubl’nMay 26th, long layover Don’t know what was I expecting But this is what I found: tired Travel -travelling alone to who knows where see what is what not, beautiful cobbled streets paved with the dirty, useless bits I used to cling to: ___________ and _____________, cloudy wonderment of mind and moments of estatic clearity […]
Double the pleasure On the road with my boy Please, adventure, seduce us
And he’s italian. An italian Muscian. And we are in in New York Prefer for the ultimate hell on wheels,wild child Finale to a crazy tattoo trip. Excellent. What else should one expect from a duo like this?
But don’t bite them Bitter as busted banana peel
A few of the mini baby tattoos; has been a blast!
It’s New York Don’t you forget it
I have lost a friend and a partner. We were a drug you could not buy and a time too quick to catch. When together, everyone was invited to the pleasure party but few could keep up. I adored him, but in the case of all lovers of love, adored many; besides, what is love […]
Now infiltraited with hipster white kids and walkable nighttime tracks, I hit up a delightfully twisted event called ‘Circus Satanis’, held in Bushwick’s Bizzare Bar and Venue. -Smurf about to take off those delicate baby garments- Just the distraction I needed when left with a hole somewhere near my blood pumping center. -staple those dollars- […]
What a lovely teaching pair: from a teacher of immigrants to a band instruction, these guys were a real treat! La Muerta Dochund Daughters name
New York Riding trains This is what I dreamt about When I peruse through the coral depths and seaweed entangled lengths of memory, it is often strewn with the walking of cities, the smelling of new fragrances and fumes, the observations of people in their natural habitat and neighborhoods ticktocking behind their unique Grandfather faces. […]
The convention was great! So glad to meet some new faces of Baltimore.
I think I want to go into greeting card design….. BALTIMORE THIS WEEKEND!
Libraries, used book stores, wonderful outside cafes and delictable chocolate eateries …. walking the River arts district and falling in love time and time again with a dream house This place is killer and I am glad to have spent time with my friend Carol Ann
Girlfriend, lets go take a hike! Graveyard Falls Or in the city- Satelite Gallery! Haha
That doesn’t necessarily mean ‘JOIN, OR DIE’ like Franklin says, but be THAT person TO TAKE ACTION IN IT. If you want to feel national pride, participate in an encouraging way to shape your community. I left the USA in expatriot dust, now I return and realize it all begins with your local community. Asheville […]
Hell yes Compact wonderment of haunting proportion; funny the guys seem decent enough
Bearded men pushing baby strollers, Music venues,microwbreweries, laundrymats! Laundrymats speak of transients and communals, of older filk and new arrivals. Each storefront an artist’s delight, it’s the less pretensious, more outdoorsy Aunt of Austin. Cool March air pushes for something productive and robust: a hike perhaps, or the simple act of doing your laundry. What […]
Linville George, right after the Linville Falls. Permits are only required May-October weekends, go take a hike;) Dream cabin!!! Forestry bits everwhere, learning never far away
Instead of hiking it, I could not help driving the length of curve and dashing turns- so many ‘gaps’ or over reaches ine could look from. Appalachia is rather dull this time of year, being March, one can only dream of the green of spring or eery hues in Fall.
The place to do it, cold and makes for a FREE romantic, albeit alone, takento the wilderness Look for the triangle sign!!!!
So reserved and like a simple student she seems, well no…….. Peices are often natural born leaders because of their contemplative minds. One would think them to flow with their emotions like water, but really- when in check of matural intuition- are great motivators and organizers. This Brazilian is no exception, at 23 she a […]
And welcoming to new friends Travelors of like mind surface from mountains to cities to sunny, Floridian beaches. I found this one in Fort Lauderdale. Cody escorted me on nighttime surf adventures and palm tree yacht- talk walks. This kid spent months exploring Vietnam to Cambodia to Laos and, speeding along with only moped and […]
Look her up. A ridiculous artist and surprising gem found in the soft, warm shores of Southern Florida. http://instagram.com/emilytides When I met this girl we were just swaping clever rhetoric then our safe courteous collegueship dove into dangerous waters: Second Amendment. She is someone who will call you out then lift a hand when you […]
Yes I do Heading into the wilderness of gators…
It was a marathon of ‘ the little bits. I had fun with this new rythm, with a few welcome larger pieces to keep my attention on cue!
Check these kids out! Cor cor the Pop collector and Skye Mr. Vegan Apprentice Fanny Pack and Mr. Chris, crazy Mad- color Gabe , Miss Amber our privy parts party piercer and Rusty, the master of the Switch.

Ahhhh! So I don’t know who this particular kid is, but I have just tattooed one of his fellow Funko Pop enthusiasts. Thank you Christian for being tough and sharing your love of the Deftones and Funko Pops;) Also to Cor Cor and Juan!
And be thankful for your health. It is not a given. This lovely gentleman lost his ‘Minimouse’ a week before. So we retained her memory on his arm. I see so much more loss here compared to having worked in Germany; I wonder if it is because of our culrural approach to it or actual […]
Jeep, top down, Busty wenches and crimes against humanity. Florida saturdays beyond compare
Skeleton socks reflect UV rays, right?
Or service. Best local breakfast joint in Corla Springs! One of my new Collegues- Emily ‘Tides’- made this delightful tip jar. Awesome!
It seems like a lot of shops I visit are more on the outskirts of a city; interesting. Could be because lower costs or because as artists start to develope families, they want a safer, calm environment. Who knows! This shop has a solid, competent and kind team. We see how the week rolls! Lots […]
Check it out, right in the heart of Fort Lauerdale yacht scene. Staying in a crew house! He’s wiped or just sprang his ankle running from a security guard. Whi knows? It’s kind of like a mixture of College, Dexter, and a smiling retirement community. Lots of springbreakers, probably suspicious blood patterns, and probiotics. Yachts. […]
US National Forests offer free camping sights year round. No Toilets or convient ammenities, reminding us how we are really just animals pooping in the woods;) https://www.fs.usda.gov/main/osceola/home Choosing this place over a Walmart parking lot or moldy hotel lenins was the best decision: live outside your comfort zone and be rewarded with the kiss of […]
Collaborate by sharing infoand discovering alternatives to medication. An old friend hit me up after my Ritalin article, offering explanations to why som have traded psych stimulants for cannibis. https://www.cannabis-med.org/index.php?vt=adhd&lng=en&tpl=search&s_site=on&s_iacm=on&s_can=on&s_journal=on&s_def=on&s_faq=on&Suchen=Search If you have further info, write me!
You know there are dog daycares? I did not; it’s equivalent for children exceptwith a grooming sess’thrown in. In a time when Millienals are choosing pets over having kids, an interesting notion. For a few dollars today let those darlins’ play;) Thank you Josh fellow gentleman tattooers, I learnt so much had a wonderful time […]
You wanna learn? Then pay attention; American Traditionalism in 30 minutes. Thin, single pass line. What size needles did Jerry use? 3, 5’s. Every 5 years the line expands and doubles in thickness. And if you can’t get it done in one pass, try harder. That said, he runs fast machines with experienced hands. Cleaned […]
Thank you Josh Hall. And not to bust Mr. Hall’s Balloons, Pappy McCall you are the man. It was kind and humble of you to show me the ropes! Will your tattoo last more than 30 years? Yellow fades, no matter what, so blast it in. Sidenote, scales on the back of eagle wing; 2 […]
A wonderful session again with Colby. What a lovely intellectual companion; especially when coming from two very different sides! I wish you the best sir; till the chest piece is finished! Ignore the middle bit; one more session to get it all pretty!
So, I have come across lots of hyper kids like me who have taken to the road figuratively; they have chosen to live outside convention and become a Colorado transient chasing the waves’ or ‘powder, or they have become freelancer. They can be a bit skewy, their brains flowing like honey- thanks Adam- or super […]
And we are off! What great ladies- Stacy and Heidi- from the analytics of personalities ro how it is raising kids at such a young age, my my we girls of travel be a diverse lot. Take care ladies, you are awesome Dallas, ain’t so bad. A bit too shiny but so it rolls! Couchsurfing […]
Carnival is back in town! Full action all the time, that’s right folks- these be some mean muscle maschine tattoo artists. Well, not mean. Delightful actually! Since I met Mr. Hall, I have come quite a way. Edging away from that Eurotrash art and doing some ‘REAL LINES’
Should be taken in calm measure. Where oh where have the elegant limbs and nimble feet gone? Wonder why truckers have guts- all that driving! After a beer and butter diet for the last feew weeks, time let those limbs move! So I did by hitting up the Woodlands fine and wealthy living communities;) First […]
A beautiful creative spirit kept true: it was a joy to tattoo her friends and family. When an 18 year old passes, how kind when people do not just morn but try and celebrate how amazing she was. Is.
It was the mutual style of cut off ts and make- up free virgin faces. And the manic energy, two powerhouses of creative madness. Sarah, we will be friends for life I hope. At least roomies and roamers. You reaffirm the doubt a freelancer has, hells girl you be kickin’ it!

Between the breadth of 18 hours, head twirls on it’s toes. Mind packed with tattoo ideas, flash and painting possibillities, mixing with that withdraw of emotion following an intense time with another individual. Ludwigsburg, what a surpising about of foreign minds and music love. And returning to Magnolia, Tx, a place -despite having harbored my […]
From customer to friend. Theough tattooing one discovers other’s minds, dreams, and depth of heart. Thank you Lena for the many years pf patronage, it was pleasure seeing the rather sweet face of anslytics again. And note this: it will all get better!!!
I adore this boy. And life. Come and go, relationship or free spirits uniting under bewildering circumstance: trust your instinct and be free. If people or external perception trap you, aim for objectivity. I go soon, but not memory or a feeling of solidarity. We see, 6 months is only as long as one percieves […]
So before I left on my grand mission, a lovely damsel wrote to get a tattoo. Coincedently, she started to work with my partner at the Rock n’ Roll Bar in Ludwigsburg. Was it fate? Yes Watercolor roses! You are Energy, lovely Hannah. Kind and excited, a passionate person with a heart set on life. […]
And my opinions ;))) His bark is like a vibrant agressive drum beat, bur heart a ting ting triangle thing. We had a tattoo party and therenis nothing like the screams of agony mixed in with Architecs ;)))
Drawing? Dancing? Acting with conviction and slightly askewed undiplomatic passion Living breathing seeing -seeing light and taking in all the flavors of night and quiet considerations, wild outside sounds open windows fresh air while he is is -is Writing and cooking, grimacing at unexpected cold coffee and me smiling at his silly […]
Old friends are where it is at. Also the band is rather delightful, especially for a 13 year old in a 29year olds body 😉 Many people say come and visit, and the ones who fight through traffic and cross state lines are friends for life 😉 Mel was one of my first friends here […]
One wild night makes for a chilled out birthday. Last year I promised myself never to spend it so melancholic a state. I had a date to leave and no concrete plans. It was cold, a bit desolate, and the calm before the storm. Cheapest flight found, best decision thus far 2017. When you are […]
Romantics Always wanted to be picked up by a nervous, energetic italian guitarist at an airport. Dream come true. And check out my prebday gift! A stewardess at KLM asked me to draw something up so I did- And then I was fiven a notebook. Every year at this time I have anew one. What […]
Support Being supported Supporting, I have to work on that last one-being a doer I tend to forget to watch, support others in their work and passion. After this years ‘get Autonomous year’, that will be my next goal. We can’t do it alone. My girl Carol Ann brings the suave elegance to the party. […]
Working as a custom artist at a lovely shop taught me discipline, structure, and how to draw to the client’sneeds. I am not a flash artist but a builder of creative ideas, and am thankful that Rabauke brought me to where I am today. So many things I was told and shown I can now […]

A week later, this vibrant, charismatic gentleman landed on my stool. I get to share unbelievable things with people, […]
The gems of the job! So I’ve gotten into Zodiacs- no really! It makes for a fun, hardly credible analysis- And I realized, like my Mom in germany, Cancer women tend to focus their emotions through solitary physical activity. This Cancer, a Geologist, has climbed many a’steep slopes. Maybe I will go rock climbing next […]

Paying 2 grand for a car implies complication. I love it; i have stop overs in beautiful places. Found a cheap motel, first of the trip. Colorado Inn, clean and on the main strip. Even have a rad mechanic next door With skylines like this to greet one so early, I think I can handle […]
Picture psychedelic musings over expresso and pizza; in Breck’ that is normal. People interchange their boards for bikes as soon as summer comes, they don’t stop moving until they are travelling somewhere else. My guys at the local market; brightening my every visit! Good vibes, fuel for the travelor heart. If only my car did […]
Last day at Godspeed; When I began my pre- journey last year I was set on serving something higher than myself. Stumbeling apon a shop called ‘Godspeed’ was coincidental; last day of my epiphany and 5 ladies all living their life fully. Make friends, serve community
My first ACTUAL Breckenridgian!! Super cool kid, really fun piece;)
I am a romantic; stories and color and not just the taste of the cake buy how was it made and with what? What makes the cream linger on your lips and the strawberry dance among the buds of your tongue? The layers of fluff or the soft crunch of an excellent crust: A great […]
I went for the free pasta and came out with one piece of info: Buy stuff. I am sure were more facts, but drawing Mountains took over my mental capacity to retain information. Heres what I have: 1. they are going to kill you 2. you have 15 min. till you die from lack of […]
Golden record on the cutest netd; some lavender for her fam
Taste the spokes, play some trivia I am not be the fountain of knowledge, but we had a killer team of service industry professionals, skiers, snowboarders, high critical tv information gathers, and the token Brit;)) Try the Coconut Porter, a real Christmas treat! Where can someone get so cozy in a brewery, win gloves, and […]
If you can cause tattoo and talk nonstop, you might have found the perfect client. Therapist? Yes, paid for both giving pain and connecting with a new individual; I couldn’t have asked for a more fun time. Thank you Stingray Geno! You bet your bottome dollar I will be visiting Virgin Islands soon… ;))
The best tattoos tell a story or share an adventure; it was a pleasure to tattoo this artwork by a member of the Tlingit Tribe, Israel Shotridge. Check out those thighs! You can tell the lady that recieved it was an advent Trekker and permeant Transient. Oxymoron, eh?
Welcome to the good life: one feels glad to be here, glad to slip on freezing ground, wake up with limited oxygen but happy bodies and and jovial hearts. Taste new substances, befriend new folk, just move. When in Colorado… I have made a new travelling friend. Our moonlight escapade to Radiam Hot Springs began […]
The weather the people the shop action action, always ups and downs, a lot like snowboarding. From busted water heaters to tattooers showing their wears, this place is solid! I understand why people stay here. Lovers of life
Skitowns bartenders tattooers travellers livers and lovers of life; a resort town brings unique perspective strait from the service industry. Worker bees anywhere else, thrivers here.

What a firey character! 6 hour session on this Wildforest Fireman!!! Pushead, take a look in the mirror and know thyself.
Kite in the sky If you are tired, achey, and hazey, still bewildered by yesterevenings’ millienal basement jam, come here. Better than caffeine and as fresh as golden delicious apples- Breckenridge puts a smile on any wild child’s face. Question is, can she handle 10 mile range hike? No! Lets picnic instead!
Every night invites adventure. If you are open, fuelled by good people and excellent belgian bier (thank you Breck’ Tap Room), then the night is yours! Met this rad kid and ended up drawing up a sick goblin shark; somehow it made it’s way onto his leg. Cheers to the movers!!! ADHD kids just need […]

How cool is it, a family pack comes rolling in and I get to tattoo two very different things on two very interesting gentleman. What’s the take? SKIP THE UNIVERSITY MODEL, think for yourself and PURSUE YOUR DREAM TRADE
Good people, rural landscape. Land of industry with the scattering of alternative thought and conserved energy. Car camping in midwest winter is a bit absurd, that is why I was so thankful to be able to stay with two wonderful brain people in Lincoln, Nebraska. One college town it’s just like another college town, […]
Creative heart beating to erratic change in weather; this city is like Russian Circles. Monica the queen of illustrative local brews, Dan baking up a storm at Pizza Party Printing, Clay Anarkopunk turned clean cut shop owner ( !!

Walmart camping, the thing to do (untilnyou loose your keys in your sleeping bag 😋)
There would be a hella ‘lotta uglies out there. Also blonde bombshells and brunette beauties.

Seriously, who said CHICKEN SOUP, meatloaf, and Santa couldn’t fix everything? Mr. and Mrs. Hegler are the dream grandparen team. […]
It has been a pleasure. The ease oflittle Summerside cannot be understood until snow is afoot and and frost is at hand. One goes from the hustle and bustle of late fall to the serenity of white. What a kind place, the people being the heart of the matter, and a charming place to […]
’You have yer Long Johns on?’ Gilmore girls Canadian version So many families, kids, firetrucks, spirit. Christmas parade, Summerside PE Fireball hot chocolate, minus the fireball. What’s not to rejoice about, tis the season’
Do you have 1/4th? 1/8th? 8%? Ancestry fuels us, binds us to history, DEFINES where our character comes from. How many times have I heard someone’s grandmother was a Sioux, a Cherokee, a lost cause romantic ideal. I know, i am romanticising, but I LOVE ROMANCE; nostalgia is a a pivotal point of traditional tattooing. But […]
Learned so much from this Blackbelt Soy-candle makin’ momma! She even gave me a crashcourse in Buisiness. Swell! Three words to the wise: Save save save
Sourpatch Tank This guy crossed that road of empathetic intuition and a double-knuckled life. A lot of people make their own problems; he just had them patiencently handed to him, silverplatter and all.

My heart is in the wildflower stone, warmed by magnificent transition of time.

Th latter is moving from Texas to Seattle, better for her more liberal mentality! Girls wit brain move North! Just kidding. And the other builds a island nest, fit with vintage fixie-uppers […]
This island is a cushion surrounded by stone,sand, and salt. The people bring warmth when November wind steals it. How lovely it was to get out with my new friend Kayla. Open-mike at Doolys!!
Or Timon and Pumbaa! It wasn’t planned, but we hit the feel of Disney. This kid (a financial auditor!) trusted me to bring forth his love of animals, 4 hrs of lion and color- he was a champ! Thanks Jonathan!
Meet Whitcomb, she my Middle of the Week Monday girl. A collector of eagles and a helper for Houston’s homeless; not every badass fits into a simple box. She was was awesome!! Also Alex and Brett, two crazy Prince Edward Islanders. Showing some Country pride? Yes. Rock on guys!
