When I got into tattooing, this man @lukewessman has been a major influence to me along the way. What's amazing is he has helped me inside and outside of tattooing. I didn't grow up with role models or anyone helping me understand life. No one showed me how to treat others, friends, and loved ones. It was through his work and his finding of @lostartofthegentleman where I found similarity in beliefs and clarity of my feelings. I am in no way perfect; I still have my battles with friends, my Queen, and life, but Luke still helps me along the way. I'm from the small island of #Guam and he's from #California traveling the world. It goes to show the power we have as individuals. I've never met him until then, but for the longest time, he's helped me become who I am today.
He's a really awesome guy! Took a break from tattooing just so I can take a picture with him. He even let me sit in his booth and watch him as he tattooed. His art is excellent and his execution is smooth. He's super humble and you can just feel how genuine he is just from meeting him. I wasn't able to get a tattoo from him, but hey it just wasn't my time. Maybe one day @thesummertowninn if I'm ever lucky. If you are not following him, treat yourself to life and start now. I have many regrets and following him isn't one. #tattoolife #inked #classic #lostartoftheg #honored #tattooartist #thrillainmanila #dutdutan17 #dutdutanconvention #tattoos
