The other night, after I got home from the tattoo parlor (and now Brawny, I don't get a new tattoo every week), Russ and I were in the kitchen when he noticed there was a fly on his glass NYC sculpture. Russ bought the miniature glass sculpture when we went down to the see the Tribute of Light in April of 2002. The fly was a bit lathargic, so it didn't move much, but it just looked so funny. We started making jokes about the people in the buildings and then I ran and got my camera. Last week you got beautiful lily's from Russ and I and this week you get The Fly That Ate Manhattan. Check it out:
I went to Utopian Tattoo for another session with Bella. She's a phenomenal tattoo artist. We had a great talk during the hour and a half she worked on my tattoo. She loved the design and was very meticulus about it. I'm beyond impressed with her work. Turns out, she knows Fred Smith who did my Aquaman tattoo and my cover up work and he'll finish my tribute to Sandy, as well as do my mermaid. Bella specializes in portrait work so she'll do a picture of my dad on the back of my left shoulder. Here's a picture of me I took when I got home. A lot of people believe I may have captured more than just me in the picture. If you look right above my hand, you can see a little whisp of white that looks like a pair of wings with the tips of the wings facing to the left and pointing up. I think Bella did a beautiful job. You can visit her MySpace page HERE.
Last but not least, congratulations to my younger brother Mike and his new bride Yolanda. They were married on March 28th. I wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness.
Oh yeah, for any of you Portlanders looking for fun activities, I convinced the girls at Flask to run the Matt Serra VS George St. Pierre UFC Fight on April 19th (Ultimate Fighting is my new addiction). Come to the bar and watch it for free, as opposed to paying 40 bucks to watch it on Pay Per View. It's also trivia night there before the show. On the 23rd, my new buddy Chris Brawn is making his stand up debut at the bar. Check out the kick ass flier I designed for him:
