I had the opportunity to shoot again for LiveWire Media for their 2nd Hot Rod Custom Car show. This one had a side event in a chili cook off which was pretty cool to experience.
The Street Dreamz C.C. Picnic was perfect with a new location and a great turnout from riders up and down the east coast. Even with a little rain it was a huge success and everyone enjoyed themselves!
I was lucky to get a invite to roll out to the Neighborhood Dreamz x 3 The Hard way BBQ this weekend. I didn’t get a ton of photos as things outside my control changed plans.

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.
Trophies were SMASHING for winners of their respective classes.
Nice Nissan Mini Truck Laying frame!

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:
Ahhh screw the line work lets bang out the COLOR!!!
The color pallet shot I though was pretty damn cool:
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!
A little healing time and a little better detail for the finished products:
The Ducky is a nice yellow but the blood clouds that into an orange color. Think RUBBER DUCK
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.
