Lastnight at the Bar....

I was over in Soho lastnight...I had roasted chicken, string beans, and mash potatoes... Once I hit the bar and had a few shots... I got inspired... Seeing people enjoying life... They didn't seem to have a care in the world...I know we all have our own personal issues & problems... But it's a time & place for everything.... I grabbed the closest thing I seen and sketched this.... "just live or die"

Tattoo "Balance" Sleeve

This was my last appointment in New York... It was a rainy day... We rolled a few blunts up and let the art flow....he wanted balance... He already had his lower arm & chest done by Queen's tattoo artist, Made Rich.... Rich reminds me of a young version of myself so I was easy to flow off the pieces he already had on him... It was an Allday session....this client was super cool and laid-back... Good energy makes it earlier to work Allday... I'm thankful
