Germany Trip '12

So a few weeks ago I went back out to Germany and attended the Ink Explosion in Monchengladbach. After the weekend I spent the next week at my friend Sven's shop Crossed Bones in Portz which is just outside of Koln. Made some fun tattoos while I stayed and hung out with the whole crew again. Great people and hospitality ! On one of the days we took off and checked out the Imhoff Schokoladen Museum and of coarse the cathedral in Koln. A fun trip like always. Thanks again guys !

Bugs, Flowers, and Birds

Red Rocks, Nevada

Since the beginning of the year I've had lots of traveling in the books. Whether it be work related or for pleasure. When my mother passed away in January I knew that a climbing adventure was much needed. In February I went to the Philly tattoo show and made some tattoos then took the train to Pittsburgh to be there for the funeral. Once I came back a good friend of mine and I took a trip to Red Rocks, Nevada. This was my first actual trad and multi-pitch climbing trip. Not only was it "breathtaking" and "epic" but a moment in time I shall never forget. Here's some photos I managed to take with my phone. I kept it in my pocket the whole time. Probably not the wisest decision but I had to capture this and stare at them in awe. Obviously the photo doesn't do it justice. Enjoy
