Press & Media

I have been fortunate to participate in great editorals over the
years.  I am always humbled by media coverage and thankful for all public interest in my work and life.


After Years of talking about it we are about to start it. Tim Hendricks and I have been close friends for over a decade and both believe story telling is a big part of tattooing, and life in general. We have been planing a interview style podcast and are close to the starting line. Stay tuned.

Inkmaster Season 4

I was asked to be a Guest Judge for Eposide 10 on season 4 of the hit television show Inkmaster. I had a blast critiquing the work of the contestants. On this episode I lead an elimination challenge.


I sat For Freedom's transformation of Norman Rockwell’s Freedom of Speech featuring Rosario Dawson, Isabella Margarita Dawson, Luke Wessman, Hank Willis Thomas, Azita Ardakani, Cynthia Ruffin, Griselda Sanchez, Michele Pred, Asma Men, and Gray Wolf.

Inked Magazine Cover

Deemed one of the best selling issues of all time. The mag originally gave me push back about me wearing a suit on the cover, I think we're all happy how it turned out.



Luke Wessman's first wine label design.
