As we look into the future our goals and dreams tend to look like blur, but as we fine tune our minds and look a little closer they seem to take a different shape. This happens all the time….life is very forgiving and willing to give us another chance as long as we are willing to take it.
Where there were once tears of sorrow,
They are no more,
Body and soul, I seek potency within.
Shrouded in darkness, I now find the light,
I must be vigilant as there is always darkness that lingers.
I take a walk down the corridors of time,
Over look what has been, what is now, and what will come to pass,
I must not be afraid,
Where there is fear,
Comfort will come,
Patience is the key.
My body is broken,
Heart bleeds from pain,
My eyes see no more deceit to this world.
I cower no more
I close my eyes,
Release all sorrows inside,
I worry not for I know my heart shall heal in time.
I have self-confidence.
There is a light within,
Seek it beyond my darkness,
If found, I must walk to it,
For there lies a door beyond.
If I believe once more,
The door will open,
I wish to find redemption.
Forgiveness and help will come to me if only I ask.
Behind the door lies a pool,
If I trust than will I bathe in its waters.
I leave behind all misfortunes,
I shall be reborn.
All is forgiven,
I appreciate this second chance.
Time is what I have.
I know I am loved,
I am free,
This is me,
This is the story of my rebirth.
And suddenly all things become clearer, things begin to make sence. It is like a rebirth free from all worries a fresh start, a new year, A new year that will bring all goods things because we have worked so hard for them giving and sacrificing so much just to be here. I thank every body that has helped us along the way not only me but my whole team. They are all doing an amazing job here at the studio, when ever I feel down all I need to do is go back and look at this blog and see how far my boys have come.
Every day thats goes by we grow as a team and we support one another and just like the ancient chinesse philosphies teach us, One stick is easy to break but when you join several of them together it is hard to do so. We know it wont be easy but we keep working hard and we face our demons every day battling them time after time unafraid and only more confident ever time.
Here are some of the works the boys at the shop have been doing, onece again it is amazing how far they have come Im extreamly proud of all of them. Im sure you will also be delighted with their work.

“Whoever appeals to the law against his fellow man is either a fool or a coward. Whoever cannot take care of himself without that law is both. For a wounded man shall say to his assailant, “If I Die, You are forgiven. If I Live, I will kill you. Such is the Rule of Honor.”
- Lamb of God
After making a pit stop over at our brother Jun Cha’s studio, our boy Alan came in to add to his collection of tattoos. Next up, Johnny Opina.
With his brand of lettering, Johnny is quickly becoming a phenom in the industry, and as he continues to raise the bar, he also takes the time to push us to continue in his path.
Alan had nothing but positive feedback about the work he had just received and couldn’t wait to go out and represent for our cause.
Johnny’s work is expanding into other mediums as he has plenty of ground breaking work in store for 2012, starting off with his own design on a new Lowrider Tattoo t-shirt. Stay tuned for that….but for now, here’s a small preview.

Our last day in Breda and I couldn’t leave before working on my boy Hans.
He had a beautiful piece ready for me from Jesus Helguera one of my favorite Artist in the world.
I will be seeing my boy again to try to finish his piece this weekend at the Amsterdam Tattoo convention.
