Helmet, Tattoos, and some cool Music

Finished up the Breast Cancer Helmet for Jeremy.  Keep an eye out for it on his blog.... http://muttincycles.blogspot.com/

Worked on the big rib panel eagle a little more over the weekend.  Got all the background shading done. Once again, the guy sat like a rock.

Tattooed Ryan today.  Ryan was a regular customer of Guillermo's.  Now that Guillermo has moved to Uruguay, I have inherited Ryan.  A couple of weeks ago, Guillermo did a MOM dagger on the side of Ryan's Neck.  Today, I did a DAD dagger on the other side.  Kinda hard to get a good pic of a fresh tattoo on the side of a neck, but he'll be back and I'll post healed pics.

Here's a couple of things that I picked up recently that are pretty cool.  The first is the new Raw Power CD.  Raw Power are one of my favorite bands.  Raw Power have been cranking out furious Italian hardcore since 1981.  In 2002, one of the founding members- Guiseppe died from a heart attack while playing soccer.  The band continued on with the only original member being Guiseppe's brother, Mauro.  They had stated that they would continue, but would not do any new recordings.  Thankfully, they changed their minds and just released 'Resuscitate'.  The new record is probably the best thing they have done since the time of 'Screams From the Gutter' and 'Wop Hour'.   For more info on this great band, you can check out their website here: http://www.rawpowerhardcore.com/

The other one, is the new OFF record.  OFF is Keith Morris' new project.  You know, Keith Morris of the Circle Jerks and Black Flag fame.  Keith went back to his roots and put out a record that sounds like it could have come out in the early 80's.  16 songs in 18 minutes.  If you're a fan of real hardcore, give it a listen.  You can stream the entire CD on line at http://digital.thinkindie.com/playlist/?ALBUM_ID=153513
