I had posted this photo previously only to take it down because of how intimidated I was that it was next to a beautiful tattoo by @the_superstition. There are days I feel like I should just quit tattooing, I feel like I’m not good enough and I feel terrible that my tattoos aren’t better. But then that’s exactly why I love tattooing so much. You can never truly master tattooing. There is always room to continue to learn, grow, and improve. And if a tattooer doesn’t think they can be better, frankly they should get bucked off their high horse and kick rocks. #ponies#forever#454tattoo#encinitas#sandiego#laurenbartram#rodeo#california#oregon#babe#tattoo

#redlandstovegas17 is this Thursday.Along with my friends @jonxcotter and @chaddyson4 and our wives crewing we will be riding our bicycles overnight to @downtowntattoolasvegas from @renditiontattoo .If you would like to donate we are doing a per mile we ride in 8 hours and or a straight donation if you want.Every amount counts from a quarter per mile and we even had a lot of people do a dollar per mile last year.
All of the money goes right back into the community to the kids and families that need it most throughout the year.We personally make sure the money is used properly and isn't filtered through any nonsense.
We believe that if we help our youth then our cities will be a better place going into the future.Everyone complains about the homeless issue but no one asks how that person ended up on that path and how it could be prevented.There are a lot of factors but giving our kids help and something do in our community and be proud of I believe will help with that problem and a lot of others into the future as well.Thanks for all of the support last year and this year so far.We appreciate it!! You can pay pal to [email protected] and if you are writing a check make it out to Blue Collar Athletics and we will get you the tax ID so you can write it off.Thanks again to @skratchlabs for coming through and supporting the ride!! #redlands#cycling#lasvegas#encinitas#454tattoo#yucaipa#supportourcommunity#WEAREABOUTREDLANDS @joerogan #joerogan#danbilzerian @danbilzerian
@tattooerchris has been a big supporter of me since before I even tattooed; when I was still a derpy apprentice. So when hurricane Irma fudged up his life I absolutely wanted to make sure he was ok. I bought these paintings to help support him while he wasn't able to work. Chris is constantly painting and is always striving to be better. And he LOVES Star Wars. He's a great dude. Snag one of this paintings (if there's any left!) and wish him a happy birthday too 😊 #454tattoo#encinitas#naples#florida#fuckyouirma#supportyourfriends
I haven't been surfing long enough to know much about it or know what people are talking about when describing types of waves,swells and other technical things buts it's awesome.I watched a 8 year old get super pumped about riding a wave yesterday and guy that had to be atleast in his 70's ride a wave on his knees today and show the same excitement as the 8 year old.Today I also saw some of the most beautiful boards/pieces of art that I have ever seen @ventura_surf_shop and someday I will own one of these beasts.There are so many awesome things about surfing and the community that I have discovered already and I'm looking forward to more and again everyone is invited to come surf with us Friday mornings from our other shop @454_tattoo in Encinitas.We have extra boards at the shop so come on down and give it a try and see what it's about. #surf#ventura#williamdennissurfboards#emmawood#encinitas#encinitastattoo#encinitassurf#surfboard#tattoo#454tattoo#encinitasmagazine#encinitas101
