Talks began years ago before he owned the shop and a seed was planted. My friend, Tony Tatts, owns Yonkers Ink and welcomed me with open arms into the shop. It wasn't until January of 2012 when that seed grew to my usual Mondays work. Who knew it was a painter's paradise? Depending on how I feel I can paint people being tatted, a still life, or have people pose for me. I am grateful for this wild opportunity to paint with the sounds of loud music, tattoo guns, love and laughter.
