    Inking stories of my ink.

    A picture holds a thousand words, equally, ink can hold a thousand stories and meanings.Tattoos are stories, icebreakers, and best of all, indelible galleries of art to carry with you through life.

    meet my new friend, kai

    kai is my 𝓴𝓪𝓲𝓫𝓲𝓰𝓪𝓷, my ride or… 😶 because to ride is to set your soul free a privilege punctuated by rolling landscapes & green lights as asphalt and rubber burn below. To feel the gentle purr of an idling engine roar to life with the twist of the throttle in turn heightening my pulse on life fingertips to toes pressing earnestly into footpegs leaning, falling into the crook…

    Hanging up the Green Apron

    The last lattes, the last milk dregs, coffee stains. The last laughs behind the counter, the last pages of this chapter.   My heart is full for store #4095, the most kick ass team I’ve known. You taught me love. Love is double-barring. Love is delivering a drink. Love is asking “how are you?” Love…
