Another night in the shop.
Brother Horitaka made this day happen. Up in Sensei Horioshi III's OG private studio...thanks Taki, you are a hero.
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!!!

selecting the design for one's back could well be the second most important decision the client makes, surpassed only by the selection of the tattoo master..
right dragon, also by Horiyoshi
This was the set-up for a shoot for an upcoming TV show
Mark is a good buddy, and we started this piece about three or so years back. We are both so busy, that it took this long to finally get the las session in last night. Just a nice, traditional Japanese samurai piece. Just freestyled the background behind some Horiyoshi III based figures.
6th session, 28 Nov 08
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
KUTUKARA - Associação Yanomami - Participando do Grito dos Excluidos - Boa Vista / Roraima. O etnônimo "Yanomami" foi produzido pelos antropólogos a partir da palavra yanõmami que, na expressão yanõmami thëpë, significa "seres humanos". Essa expressão se opõe às categorias yaro (animais de caça) e yai (seres invisíveis ou sem nome), mas também a napë (inimigo, estrangeiro, "branco"). Os Yanomami remetem sua origem à copulação do demiurgo Omama com a filha do monstro aquático Tëpërësiki, dono das plantas cultivadas. A Omama é atribuída a origem das regras da sociedade e da cultura yanomami atual, bem como a criação dos espíritos auxiliares dos pajés: os xapiripë (ou hekurapë). O filho de Omama foi o primeiro xamã. O irmão ciumento e malvado de Omama, Yoasi, é a origem da morte e dos males do mundo. Outros Nomes: Yanoama, Yanomani, Ianomami Onde estão: Amazonas, Roraima, Venezuela Quantos são: 15.682 (Funasa - 20
