I WILL learn how to make shoes someday.....


As with most Pisces, I am obsessed with shoes. Every sign has a body part associated with it and mine is feet. Top two images are Alexander McQueen (RIP), then Chie Mahara (Japanese woman born in Brazil who now resides in Spain). I bought a pair of her shoes for my wife that I adore. I wise man once told me that the things you love most, you should give away.....She does let me wear them on occasion, tho.
The bottom shoes are made by Jo Ghost who makes the sickest shoes for dudes. His shoes for chics don't entirely do it for me because the mens tend to be cooler, over the top.
Some day I will be a cobbler....

So my preacher friend texts me today (clearly underestimating my state of disbelief) saying something snarky like: "Hey you agnostic, what Do you celebrate at this time of year?" I responded: "Solstice. And we had it first." - A. Roginski

New Shit for Konstantine







Konstantine rules because he likes the overblown goods. I love to make shit for him b/c he has an idea and lets me roll with it having faith that I will make something that will satisfy him. He wanted that rock 'star' feel as he has a sick collection of gee-tars. I know he will wear them well......

Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do. The more you sweat in practice, the less you bleed in battle. So sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in you sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. - Mark Twain

I MiSS HeR


The Scavenger's Daughter was a labor of love. I remember the day we gave her a haircut. It was a thing of beauty. We also equipped her with every gauge known to man. Airplane, vehicular, and many unknown sources. Of course, none of them were wired to anything. We wanted to make her as confusing as possible. Of course, we could never register her, but we had fun taking her on short rides anyway. We ended up selling her and still see her on rare occasions. I feel she was the only child I will ever have. I am sending her sweet, sweet vibes of love right now. I miss you, SD, XOXO, HR.

Lock scores owl talons for HR

Out on a ride in the Black Hills, my boy finds an owl along side of the road and it occurs to him that I definitely NEED its talons. This is true. Thanks to Colleen for carrying them around in her purse and then, after we forgot to get them from her, sent them along with a rattler tail she got in SD, an epic dragonfly, and many other goodies.

ReBeL InK

I was introduced to Steve Prue via Chopper Dave at the Brooklyn Invitational. By the end of the show, I watched him speed off on his Ducati with my studded Blue Barrel handbag on his shoulder filled with my accessories. No, he had not ripped me off. He would shoot some heavily tattooed smokehouse babes rocking them. I am waiting to get my paws on a plethora of images some of which will be in the next issue of Rebel Ink. I will post images as soon as they come out. I have seen some teasers and they are pleasers. Steve shoots for Suicide Girls, Tattoo mags, Yuhmm (LOVE this site), Playboy, and many more. Check out '10 things about him' and the link to the interview by Yuhmm.

Team Rock Star Images

Ten Things You may or may not know about Steve Prue, photographer extraordinare:

1. He is a firm believer in that certain facts are always true no matter what the sitation:
The hair can never be too big (as his mom would say, "the bigger the hair, the closer to God.")
Nothing is worth doing unless you can overdo it.
There isn't an image created that can't be made better with the addition of either boobs or tentacles.
There's always a pot of coffee brewing somewhere.

2. He's lived in 5 states (and 2 countries overseas), attended 15 schools between kindergarten and college, but when asked where he's from...always answers "North Carolina."

3. He's the son of a rabid amateur photographer and an former art teacher - he's amazed that he still has his vision after the amount of flashbulbs that went off in his face before the age of 5. Thanks dad!

4. His work has been published in various outlets including Playboy, Zink!, The Village Voice, a bunch of tattoo magazines, couple of books, a slew of websites, been seen on TV (cable and broadcast) but the 2 things he is very proud of...being asked to guest on Latenightfeelings.com and that the Jonas Brothers recognize him when he shoots their events.

5. Steve likes coffee...actually loves coffee. He has two coffee tattoos and has been overheard telling someone's mother that if "coffee had boobs, I would marry it." Steve's wife, who was sitting next to him at the time, just sighed.

6. He loves shooting, hates editing. Clings to the belief that if he EVER catchs up on all his editing, the world will end in a sudden cataclysmic conflagration while at the same exact instant, Hell freezes over. He's just slow as fuck to keep y'all safe.

7. He used to be disgusted, now he is just amused.

8. Steve is thanked on the last 7 Motorhead albums and when he dies, is firmly convinced that this will help ease his way into Heaven. Lemmy is God.

9. Other than one studio lighting class a couple years ago, he has no formal photography training. Steve spends a fair amount of time reading books on photography, loves looking at other people's photography, researching photography on the interwebs, experimenting with film and vintage cameras and playing with kittens. Oh yeah, he likes taking pictures of naked girls...a lot.

QuotE of the DaY

My violence is pure
Walk the battlefield with stainlesses
They say I'm deranged, disconnected and dangerous
My rap is sharp enough to slash your veins and wrists
I put a knife into my heart to see if pain exists
