Bob Osborn, myself and my Knuckle Bob was known

horiyoshi iii tattoo gallery

Bob was known as "OZ" for many years. He published BMX Action, Freestylin', and Homeboy magazines among others. He is the father of RL Osborn, and the great Windy Osborn as well. To have him photograph my bike and I was a really big honor. He drove all the way out from Montana to spend two days of intense work to make it happen. Watch DicE magazine for the upcoming spread we did. This was inside the pro studio we used for part of the shoot. It was raining SHEETS outside, and the ride was SOOO sketchy on I-80 with jockey shift and cowboy boots...hahahahaaa!!!

This is the center of Mark's calf piece...asymetrically placed, but the center! : ) It's of course a great symbol of protection and good luck in Japanese folk tradition to this day.

Three random tattoo ideas

Tattoo Session #6 - Dragon's Head Finally back into

chest tattoo dragon

Finally back into The Mercy Seat for some more work. This makes session number 6. Most of the dragon's head is done. I am really liking the blue alot. But all the black fill gets added around it I think it will jump off my chest. It is starting to shed and scab a little now. The eyes are one solid color yellow and that is a scab that looks like a pupil. Won't get pupil until everything else is completed.
