Tattoo Film: Fundraiser

"Color Outside the Lines"

We have been working on this film for over a year... We are half way finished but I still have to film the lives of 12-14 more tattoo artist.... The way I'm paying for this movie is by traveling to different cities monthly tattooing....while I'm in their city we film the lives & struggles of other fellow black tattoo artists...I work 10-12 hours each day tattooing in each city and film the artist in the morning before or after work... It's VERY hard work and it do cost a LOT... If you would to support me on this film project... I have a few SPECIAL OFFERS... From original paintings to body art... Please visit:

Read "the Pledges" and please support what this film stands off... Wish dreams come true.. Many blessings and thank you, Miya Bailey

Thinking about You....

Monday i was leaving the bank and got a call from my mother "Uncle Bert is dead" the pain shot from my heart to my stomach....I was in the car with my friend, Damon....I have a hard time showing pain in front of other men so I held it all in.... It felt like my head was going to blow up....I wasn't ready for this...I wasn't ready for this type of pain.... We lose Billy last year and just lose my aunt on my Uncle Bert.. The man who brags how he raised me...we didn't see eye to eye all the time but I do KNOW he loved me and the rest the family with all his heart.... They said his cellphone was full of pics of our children and us....the pain I feel... And the FEAR I feel knowing i will have to see him in that casket.... I can't write anymore... But know that Jesse Bailey was one of the few men that help make me into the man I am today.... I love you more than words can explain.... Thank you for always believing me in and always having my back....your my heart... I miss you... It won't be the same without you.... We have to be strong for were her little brother I know she hurts...but your with Nanny & Grandmama now.... Please looking over us... RIP Uncle Bert

Asheville Love....

I did this tattoo lastnight on my homegirl, Kandice from back home in Asheville... I wanted to use the classic "West End" designs for the background...bright colors in between the black to make the dragonflies stand out.... It means a lot when my folks from the Ville come down to get their body art.... Thank you for all the love and support... MB
