I know...who in their right mind would whine about being a tattooer?  I could be worse. but shit man, all i wanna do is go skate!!! i just set up a new stick and im trying to get more that 3 days in this year. fucking pathetic...3 days? am i that old? i remember not long ago when i bugged out for not skating more than 3 days a week!!! gah....just too busy with Tattooing and building machines and the new house and wedding stuff  and on top of all duties as an officer at Unity  Lodge of F.&A.M....

Anyways...I got to tattoo one of my favorite people on earth this week, my friend Devon Connell. i've known him since he was a little shit and wore cargo pants that were 10 sizes too big for him. his momma used to come into the Garden( the old skate shop that i worked at as a kid...) an i could sell her anything. well, he's is all growed up and still skating hard. i love skating with him. he's got a smooth original style that is hard to duplicate. he is super quiet and humble and listens to all my bullshit and laughs at my stupid jokes. he always has. he is a great kid.

Recently, well more like a year or two ago, his older brother Joel died. Joel is the one who set his little brother up skateboarding in the first place. Joel was a great dude also and will be missed. Devon always talks about all the insane things they did together skateboarding and such. FSD was an early skate crew that they formed. Fuck Shit Damn....something like that...real classy shit...

so...Devon got a box-cutter with FSD on it. Devon is gnarly. Joel was Gnarly. a box-cutter??? pretty fucking gnarly.

shout out to Donna and Potato Connell......

So...I'm at the shop....waiting around to drown in walk-ins on a Friday night...dreaming about skateboarding....I wouldnt have it any other way.
