Als - Tattoowise
My brother, Taggart, is afflicted with ALS, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or "Lou Gehrig's Disease," and is also an Army veteran. He's a patriot and a fighter. The tattos are only his second and third respectively. He is planning to fill his arms with tattos to shout out about his fight with ALS. Lou Gehrig has become his hero. Taggart is on a mission to own all the different Lou Gehrig baseball cards he can find. Ebay has been rocking as a resource and he's collected over 40 cards so far. When I saw these new tattoos, I couldn't wait to share them with my friends. To Taggart, who is kicking ALS in the arse.
Three random tattoo ideas
This mural was designed to wrap around the walls of the bathrooms at at a bar called Whiskeytown in NYC. To keep with the rock and roll bar's subtle nautical theme I designed the mural to evoke a clash between classic American sailor tattoo imagery and the more modern Japanese influenced tattoos. All of which was filtered through my own illustrative style.
Had a shoot with Danny on Monday and wanted to share a preview shot. Shot this at an abandoned orchard near my house, have wanted to shoot there for awhile and I think Danny and I churned out some incredible shots. Shot setup was 2 Minolta 5600hs (d) flashes on stands at 45º on each side of model. Camera left at 1/4 intensity, camera right set at 1/8. Reflected using silver lined umbrellas.
