Today was a great and memorable day. Honored to have tattooed at @nhmla the Tattoo exhibit is a must see. If you are tattooed you have to see it. Very well put together and beautiful. I was blown away. Thank you for letting me a be a little fly on the wall and tattooing in your museum. Thank you to @majesty_jm for coming down. @blackanchorworldwide @stencilanchored

Awesome tattooing really nice clients. Thanks for letting me make this piece of art on you. Original art done by @viveros_brand face shoulders and chest are healed the rest is fresh. @blackanchorworldwide @stencilanchored @bishoprotary @fusion_ink
Mostly healed shoulder is fresh the mariachi skeleton needs one last pass to complete with minor touch up. Haven’t worked on this in about a year or more. #diadelosmuertos#dayofthedead @blackanchorworldwide @stencilanchored @fusion_ink @bishoprotary

Got to say “fuck it” to the negativity the anger. Spread love push forward. Some time ago speaking in front of a few hundred people. Black Anchor Academy is coming soon to Pasadena Ca. At the end of jan during the @goldenstatetattooexpo make sure not to lose out. This seminar will be more a career changer. Not only will it cover techniques but it will go over career, motivation, how others have made a mark in the industry before social media and just how to be a all round better tattoo artist (this is for tattoo artist and apprentices that are already working in the industry this is not a Tattoo school). Only 200 tickets available I think about half are sold don’t wait it will sell out. Go to nikkohurtado.com Teachers @nikkohurtado @franco_vescovi @shawndbarber @carlostorresart @misterctoons @jessesmithtattoos @russabbott @stevebutchertattoos @boristattoo @chetzar @michael_hussar @normloveletters Sponsors @stencilanchored @bishoprotary @rinsecup @inkeeze @fusion_ink @tacsciences @apoundofflesh @criticaltattoo @hivecaps I’m so excited!!!!!!! It’s going to be a fun filled weekend!
Today marks seven days till Halloween. #letsgetdarke what does this mean to you? Halloween is one of my favorite holidays with all the make up and dressing up. Very artistic time of the year. Really honored to be a part of this campaign. Please drink responsibly. 21 and over @jagermeisterusa @jagermeister
Never afraid! What this means to me- Never afraid to do the work my self if need be. Never above the smallest task to humble my self. Don't be afraid to work hard give and not expect anything in return. Don't be afraid to fail. I will do what ever it takes to succeed. Not afraid for my back to go out again. Not afraid to break. Remember always be the hardest working person in the room. Opportunity comes and goes same as people. But when it comes enjoy and when it goes be thankful for your time. But the rule is when it passes put your head back down and continue the hard work the grind the cleaning the grunt work. No one will give it to you. You have to get up off your ass and take it daily. Being consistent is what it takes. This message isn't saying I've made it. This message is saying I will do what ever I need to do to perform and do better. So if you get time and you own a business or work for someone else take pride in your job pick up a broom sweep clean a toilet or counter because you are not above it. Take pride in your work and take pride in your self. Be a great worker a smart worker and I promise it will pay off in the long run! Nothing is owed to you. God bless enjoy your Monday and let's get it. #thisisforthehardworkers#thegrinders#thedreamers#theavragejoe#bluecollar#neveraboveneverbelowonthatlevel Not to mention this was midnight Saturday night! FYI
A long two days of tattooing. So honored when client fly out and dedicate so much time and effort to the tattoos they get. This guy flew out from Montana did two solid 8hours of tattooing two days in a row. 16 hours plus. That with out prep or stencil. So actually two 12-14 hour days. This is what it takes to get this much work over two days. Bottom is a goblin or orc from lord of the rings. #lordoftherings#goblin#orc Top is from Silent Hill #silenthill#darkalessa @blackanchorworldwide @stencilanchored
