Dedicated to “Nawlins”….


Each tattoo tells a bit of my life story. I’m not one of those “gun attached to brass knuckles mixed with a knife kind of tattoo” people. Each of my now 22 tattoos bares some kind of importance. My most recent piece is a dedication to the city that showed me that I had a bit of growing up to do. Now I wasn’t down there being a menace to myself and others but there was a bit about yours truly that I hadn’t even come to terms with. Continue reading

I wish I had kept better records for these photos. At least a name or something that I could remember to link the identities, conversations, etc with some of the people that I’ve taken photos of. All that I can recall from this night is that I was in my usual stomping grounds, Evangelines II, a bar on St Charles and it may have been after I got off of work. I think that she and her friend (may have been her boyfriend) may have arrived after me or were there before me (yeah this is REALLY clearing up) and her name might’ve been Tracy and she bartended at another bar that I used to grip burgers.

The vibe down there is legit and there’s much creativity down there that I have revisit in person as well as trouble, the good trouble but trouble nonetheless. A few of the shots here were taken inside The Saint Bar, Siberia, Prytania Street, Cool kids in the French Quarter and “The Fly”.  Continue reading

35mm Pastlife: New Orleans, August 2013 (Black and White)

Autosave-File vom d-lab2/3 der AgfaPhoto GmbH

I carried (and still do) a camera everywhere that I went in New Orleans. I wanted to document everything that I could while roaming up and down St. Charles. Before I jumped into the world of tattoos, I would always ask people (namely women) for permission to snap of shot of their tattoos and you will see more of those in more posts to come. There was so much to see in New Orleans and I really fell in love with the Marigny. I’m even debating on a few fleur de lis tattoos because thats how real the love was/is for that city.   Continue reading
