Virginia: 7 Cities Super Show Street Dreamz X RNR Tires Hampton September 22, 2012

I was invited by Johnny Outlaw from Street Dreamz Lowrider Club to come out and shoot somme photos of this show. The Show started off slow as a lot of people got caught in Tunnel traffic. But as the afternoon drew on the nice rides started rolling in.

Well with Christmas over and the budget back on track,and with a little help from myself in working damn near everyday since Christmas Eve until January 23rd. I ran to my tattoo artist in North Carolina for some much needed work. Big Dennis and his Custom Creations shop in Ahoskie, North Carolina is newly acquired and a nice change of venue from the last location. The space is incredible as is the set up of flash and the SICK tattoo chairs that make it easy for any position needed to slap ink on your body!

I had a laundry list of things to get done/finished,and Dennis was happy to keep up his end of finishing the sleeves and now legs I have started. So here are some pics I took during the daylong process of tattooing.

Starting the fun:

The legs were nuts.I was definitely spooked on the Shin positioning of the designs, but as the night wore on, those were the least of the “nice feeling spots” I needed to concentrate on!

Dennis’s better half Angela ALWAYS includes Gisselle in the Tattoo experience whenever we visit. Selle came prepared with her own bag of temporary tattoo’s for Angela to apply and keep Selle Occupied during my session! This for sure GEEKS Gisselle to no end!

Now onto the under arm piece. 4 Hours on the legs now about 3 hours for the arm. Thanks to USUGROW fora DOPE ASS DESIGN! I hope this Ink work does it justice!

Thanks to Big Dennis at Custom Creations for the dope ass ink work and special thanks to Jeremy Harburn and Usugrow for being FREAKING DOPE artists that encouraged me to put their work permanently on my body!

If anyone out there in the Hampton Roads Area or North Carolina would like some VERY NICE work at VERY NICE prices hit Dennis up @ 1-252-332-1600.
