The closer we get to our grand opening the more anticipation we get and also lots of surprises from many of the guest that will be attending. Today our friend Lina showed up to turn her entree for the art show, for our surprise it was a portrait of myself…… I could not believe the realism of the drawing it looks so real it reminded me of one of our favorite artist Dirk Dzimirsky . Everybody at the shop was amazed and very inspired which is what we are trying to achieve with our art show next weekend.
Im sure Lina will become one of the best in the next years to come for she has all that is necessary…..So be sure to check out her work at myspace.com/tattsbylina, come and say hi to her at the Grand Opening.
I would like to take this opportunity to say a few words, There is so much good people all around us and we dont even see them or sometimes we choose not to acknowledge them. If we just took one second and used it to be inspired or to put our self in those people shoes and learn from them rather than trying to compete I Know we would start to understand how beautiful learning is… For we can learn from even the simplest of men. For the true test of self confidence is having the courage to acknowledge, and to be open to new ideas regardless of their source.
I thank Lina and everybody out there reading our blog

While reading the latest issue of Inked Magazine, I came across a picture of my good friend and fellow tattoo artist, Laura Satana. In honor of the magazine’s second year anniversary, they put out a spread of lovely ladies for us to ogle at. They succeeded by adding this striking pose taken by Armen Djerrahian.
Dazzling and Classy are the best words used to describe the beautiful Laura Satana. Not only is she stunning, she’s also incredibly talented. Laura’s tattoo work ranges from fine line black and grey to traditional. She is an all around good artist and we are thrilled to have her in our part of the world for our grand opening party.
Laura will be guest spotting at the shop from December 11 to December 23, 2009. To make an appointment, call the shop at (714) 418-9575. CLICK HERE to check out her work on her myspace page. DO NOT MISS YOUR CHANCE TO BE BLESSED BY HER INK.
Be sure to go out and pick up a copy of the new Inked Magazine and make sure you stop by and hang out with us on December 19, 2009. You don’t want to miss our Grand Opening.

I recently came across an old article about my accident and it reminded me of my struggle to get to where I am today. Eventhough I was confined to my wheelchair, I always kept my head up and persevered with anything I put my mind to.
I hope that by reading this article, it may inspire and help you with your struggles. If you want something, take it. Don’t let anything or anyone tell you that you can’t do anything. You must drill through any obstacles and take what you deserve.
We all have dreams. Some of us reach them soon, for others, it take a lifetime to achieve. A lot of us face rigorous tasks in order to get what we want in life, but when you reach them, life becomes worth well living.
