I was at Paul Booth's NYC Studio last night and major construction is going on. Holy FUCK is that man busy. He is so unique, words fail me. LOVE him! He is the one who did my kick ass Hendrix tattoo. Some say he is the most famous tattoo artist in the world (waiting list is 20 years long lol). I pop in sometimes to see him and his incredibly sweet (and hot) girlfriend. Great people!
Paul, who normally never tattoo’s on demand or in color, or anything you ask him to, he is an artist who also does tattoo’s did me the biggest favor ever by taking the drawing I gave him and turning into my tattoo (not done yet, I have two more sittings to do for this one still with him). As I mentioned in my last blog about Paul (and Gregg Allman getting his tattoo by Paul), he only does tattoo’s freehand, no tracing and he picks and chooses who he lays his ink on, his everlasting artwork.
If it's REALLY important I can get up at 7am (when I usually go to sleep). Massaging Mr. Gregg Allman is REALLY important. Gregg has had massages from my team now and again, but this is the first time I got to massage him myself. I can't count the times he told me “this was the BEST massage I have ever had!”. I asked him if he likes Frank Zappa's version of his song “Whipping Post” and he said “I love it”. That is my favorite Allman Brothers Band song fyi.
As predicted, I screamed for about 2 hours straight. The guys in the tattoo shop were having a blast winding me up. I told them “this has got to be the only thing that hurts worse than anal sex” and that got them all roaring with laughter.
Dan did an amazing job on my tattoo. I have to post before and after now:
Bit by Bit I will add photos now, starting with Lisa's strange white cat, she pays 50 bucks a whack to have him(?) shaved into a LION, the cat normally has super LONG hair,she has it cut all over, very short, except the tip of the tail and all around the head, to make it into a mini-suburb lion cat. I can't believe no one steals this gorgeous walking piece of furry art! That is what people in the Suburbs do to get their thrills, shave their cats, get wasted and have a LOT of sex.Can you blame em? It is called the simple life 🙂This other Photo below, is the Tattoo I was writting about a couple weeks ago.It is Arturo, the artist who did EVERY Ramones album cover and invented this cool logo for them. He added his own name there, and got rid of one of the Ramones names.To find out why, go back and read what I wrote in the blog titled RAMONES.The photo below is Arturo – check out his site: http://www.officialramones.com
