Come blooming youths, as you pass by ,
And on these lines do cast an eye.
As you are now, so once was I;
As I am now, so must you be;
Prepare for death and follow me.
We have the same frustrations, we make the same mistakes, anger takes a hold of us, its been the same from the beginning of time. History repeats its self time after time. A dark future awaits us, we must learn from the ones that have come before us to illuminate the path that lies a head of us….. By doing this we can accomplish our own goals and interpretations of what others have done in the past.
Even the greatest heros had trials and tribulation, they lost their mind at one point. Everybody is vulnerable, we all have feats to accomplish if we want to erase the sentence of our misdemeanours.
Only then can we become victorious just like the greatest man and hero since the dawning of Civilisation.

“Let off the throttle, let them win”
Its been a long wonderful year full of so many good times and were not done yet……We are going back and forth, from one airport to another to fulfill our dreams. We put our selfs aside to be able to please others and in the process we get lots of satisfaction.
There are so many encounters with so many different people, and its always the same it all starts with a greet and and always ends with a goodbye……. But not without a unforgettable connection being made , for we give our best and a lil bit of us always stays behind. But only for a while.
For there is always another day and for that we give thanks to the lord above. We take this opportunity to also thank those above and those who are still here with us.
Until our day comes we shall endure the pain and struggles it takes to get to the top of the mountain that many are still searching for. And never forget those who have looked over their shoulders just to give us a chance.
I dont have enough hands and fingers to count such people that have put their lives aside just to give me the opportunity to make my dreams come true.
YOUR FRIEND AND ARTIST

Our boy Mike V came in to work on his arm all the way from Idaho. I have a lot of respect for all of our loyal fans and friends that are willing to come or drive from all over. I thank all of you for all the support. Today I will continue on his arm, I just hope that he’s up to it for it will be a lot of pain for him to endure, but then again he drove 14 hours to get here so I’m sure he’ll be ok.
So with that said stay tuned for the second part of this project. thank you.

Here is some moments to enjoy the recap of our trip to Germany. Berlin really redefined what “cold” is to us spoiled Californians. Beyond the freezing elements, lies a truly beautiful city. And of course the LT studios was there to represent. A huge thank you to Travelin’ Mick for the amazing hospitality, and all the support of the people of Berlin and throughout Europe who joined us for the visit!

Another day at the shop and inspiration is growing stronger and stronger. We were looking through our archives of tattoos and we pulled out one that aroused our creativity. We learn everyday from various sources…books, videos, other artists, but when it comes to hair, we all take whatever we can from Jose’s style. This is why this tattoo has sparked something within us to motivate and push ourselves to go beyond our limits as well as surpass any of our previous expectations. The harder we try, the better our work will be.
Take a look.
The award winning piece was done on our very good friend Pedro at the London convention earlier this year and we believe it’s a strong piece because it captures the innocense and beauty of the child while complementing the portrait with a beautiful rose.
Another great piece was done on our good friend Nurit Yeshurun of New York. Nurit is a fan of the black and grey style and has great pieces done by some of the masters including Chuey Quintanar. She is also a huge fan and friend of the enigmatic Pint.
Not only does she have great taste in tattoos, but she also had an incredible music playlist that we all enjoyed. Meshing in with our music taste, we had music thundering throughout the shop from Creedence Clearwater Revival to Notorious BIG as well as some of the classic Howling Wolf to Brand Nubian.
This tattoo had a lot of influential technique. We all crowded alongside Jose’s workstation just to soak up as much knowledge as we could with this stunning piece of work. From the hightlights in the hair and jewelry to the heavenly features in the eyes, this was a tremendous piece to stimulate our minds as tattoo artists.
Nurit is a down to earth girl who we can’t wait to see again…..See you in New York!

They call it the biggest tattoo show on earth, and indeed, in London, we have homies from around the globe with us. It is both a pleasure and honor to work along and be with the best in the industry. Take a look at a few moments here in Wapping London.
The big homey Chuey always holds it down.
As is the homey Steve Soto-his first round in London.
A piece done by our own Gustavo Lopez earlier in the show.
And another by Mikey Doodles.
Back at home base the crowds come in flocks. First, our brother Pedro from Portugal came through to get his portrait piece by Jose~the result earns another Best of Day award.
A big thanks and congratulations to all the brothers from Portugal.
And Jason came through to begin his lower right sleeve-Jun Cha.
And last but not least, the one and only Black n Grey award in London is taken home by our own Mark Osuna, another piece to write in the books!
A big thanks to everyone who flew in from all over Europe, the patient and dedicated clients who’ve sat through the daylight hours, and all the fellow artists who always have our back. It’s because of all of you that makes us work twice as hard and be twice as grateful for the love and support. Up next~ Barcelona, Spain!
