my favorite xmas present...

my wife Tiffany is pretty talented in her own right and has been doing leather work for 6 or 7 years now. It's not a full time gig, but she doesn't want to do it full time cause that always seems to take the enjoyment out of things. I designed this wallet about 2 years ago, and waited patiently while she did motorcycle seats and handbags for all of our friends. I never thought I would actually get it, but she surprised me...pretty stoked on it too....theres a link to her work to the right, Hammersmith Leather...go check it out.

Victory Relaunch party!

I'm back, and I got a shit ton of stuff on my plate...I'm finishing a '34 coupe for the Grand National Roadster Show and getting ready to relaunch the tattoo shop along with all of the usual stuff like making parts, seats, tattooing, and trying to make a dent in my other customers cars and bikes. Hope a bunch of you will be able to make it down to the party on Feb 5th. It's sure to be a good time as usual, and we will be having an after party as well, but you gotta show to the relaunch to find out when and where...of course DicE is sponsoring it, they'll sponsor anything! free junk, and booze, priority parking for choppers....lots of restaurants downstairs to eat at too....

You Can't Put Your Arms Around a Memory...

It's been hard for me to post lately. My dogs have both been sick since before I went to Japan, and when I got home, Barney was worse than before. We put him on some new meds that helped his comfort level, and he almost seemed like his old self for the last couple of weeks, but we knew it wouldn't last forever. He finally left us Sunday night, and I'm really having a hard time without him around. He was the best little guy you could ever hope to meet, some of you were lucky enough to spend some quality time with him over the last few years. We rescued him 7 years ago, as a 4 year old. He already looked old with a white face, but acted like a pup. Nothing ever got him down. Make sure you let your dogs know how much you love em as often as you can. They'll give you everything without asking for anything in return. see you later Barney Dog....

The Pussy Puncher

Saw this awesome masterpiece at Hawgholic in Tokyo. Maybe there's a better name for it than pussy puncher...
Goblin gobbler?
Monster muncher?
Fantasy fister?
