This station makes being at work a little more tolerable. Awesome mix of Rockabilly and Rock N' Roll.

Don't respect tattooing? Watch this. This man deserves more respect than you ever will. http://blog.sailorjerry.com/
I have been fortunate enough to have mentors that taught me the respected traditions and techniques of American tattooing. Unfortunately, there are countless people out there tattooing that do not hold that same respect for the old timers that I was taught. Respect for that old man teaching you to tattoo is such an important aspect of professional tattooing and your formal apprenticeship. People that think tattooing is fast money. It's not! Tattooing is a career. Not something you do out of your kitchen. Proper sterilization is just the beginning. I couldn't tell you how many tattoos I have covered that were done for $20 and a pizza and look like my three year old nephew did it. Tattoo parties are bullshit! People tattooing out of their houses are worthless scum.

This documentary about Sailor Jerry is exactly why I got into tattooing. American tattooing is as American as apple pie. Ed. Hardy doesn't make your stupid t-shirts or your cheap perfume. He was a tattoo artist. Sailor Jerry was the man that that got him started.

If you don't have respect for the generations of tattooers that came before you. Stay away from the business. We don't want you! If you are tattooing out of your house, shame on you. If it were up to me I would hit you in the face with a brick. If you think Miami Ink is a good representation of all professional tattooing. Think again. That show makes me sick.

Watch this and go get an Eagle tattooed from the oldest tattooer you can find.

"Saved From the Deep." 9"x12", watercolor and ink on paper.
BOLD WILL HOLD! Tattooing the way it was meant to be. Forget the Koi fish! Come get this or another piece of my Traditional American Flash tattooed. I will make you look tough as nails.
