Le Corbeau et le Renard
Maître Corbeau, sur un arbre perché,
Tenait en son bec un fromage.
Maître Renard, par l’odeur alléché,
Lui tint à peu près ce langage :
“Hé ! bonjour, Monsieur du Corbeau.
Que vous êtes joli ! que vous me semblez beau !
Sans mentir, si votre ramage
Se rapporte à votre plumage,
Vous êtes le Phénix des hôtes de ces bois. ”
A ces mots le Corbeau ne se sent pas de joie ;
Et pour montrer sa belle voix,
Il ouvre un large bec, laisse tomber sa proie.
Le Renard s’en saisit, et dit : “Mon bon Monsieur,
Apprenez que tout flatteur
Vit aux dépens de celui qui l’écoute :
Cette leçon vaut bien un fromage, sans doute. ”
Le Corbeau, honteux et confus,
Jura, mais un peu tard, qu’on ne l’y prendrait plus.
The Crow and The Fox
Master Crow sat on a tree,
Holding a cheese in his beak.
Master Fox was attracted by the odour,
And tried to attract him thus.
“Mister Crow, good day to you.
You are a handsome and good looking bird!
In truth, if your song is as beautiful as your plumage,
You are the Phoenix of this forest.”
Hearing these words the Crow felt great joy,
And to demonstrate his beautiful voice,
He opened his mouth wide and let drop his prey.
The Fox seized it and said: “My good Sir,
Know that every flatterer,
Lives at the expense of those who take him seriously:
This is a lesson that is worth a cheese no doubt.”
The Crow, embarrassed and confused,
Swore, though somewhat later, that he would never be
tricked thus again.
During life, having the support and encouragement of your peers is important. It pushes us and gives us perhaps the confidence that we need to succeed. Though in life we have to be modest and wise to
practice sober judgement… allowing flattery to empower us only makes us weaker. Only you know your own self-worth.

First, a big thank you to EVERYONE who came out to support the grand opening and art show of the new Lowrider Tattoo Studio, HQ. It took alot of hard work from everyone who was dedicated since the very first moment that the idea came to mind, and thanks to the strong team and YOU people to support it, together we made the night possible. I think the Lowrider Tattoo family can write an entire book on special thank you’s, shout outs, and why they are important, but I’ll let Jose do those special honors after this post. The basis for this event we called “Inspiration”, originally a purpose for individual artists to pay tribute to their specific mentors and artists. But it’s safe to say from everyone of Lowrider Tattoo Studios, the true inspiration is beyond any individual. To us, seeing and being together as a whole with all of you, is the real inspiration and is what this all about. THANK YOU. Here’s a look at just some of the moments of the show……

Homie Leroy came down from Belgium to promote the up and coming Belgium convention. We had the honor of having him sign our door that many great artists have blessed with their signature. This Tattoo Convention will be the first ever to take place in Belgium and I assure you that it will not be the last one, we’ll do whatever is necessary to make it one of the best in Europe. We thank our boy Leroy for taking care of us and extending us his invitation.
Our boy Carter came from London wanting to get a piece representing his father as a strong willed character…”Oceanus” in Greek, is believed to be the world ocean, an enormous river encircling the world.
While I was tattooing on Carter, his boy also got the urge to get tattooed. My lil Brother Gus went to town on him and tattooed a small traditional style ship with his own twist on his shoulder. It was an unforgettable night and we won’t ever forget the look on Carter’s face…. To end the night he asked me to sign his tattoo, which is just a huge honor for anybody to ever ask….We thank you Carter for crossing an ocean to be with us here….We’ll be seeing you next month.
