Hawk and a Rabbit Feb 4, 2011


I had hopes of making another Day in 10 Photos post about my recent trip to see Jesse Gordon at Amillion Tattoo for another piece but alas, low light and blurry photos got the best of me. Yesterday I went to see Jesse to get a predatory tattoo. Something that would inspire me as I ride and in life in general. There’s something assertive about having the cycle of life inked on your skin. We finished up the line work and shading yesterday, with color coming up in a few weeks. While I’m bummed my digital shots didn’t come out, maybe my film camera caught the process better. Fingers crossed!

Support your cycling-friendly tattoo artists and tip well! Jesse’s been shafted before and that ain’t no way to support your community! Check out more photos at my Flickr.
