BrYan ReYnoLdS



This dude rocks my world...Didn't get some of his best work on here, but you can check out the link for more. The top piece is one of my faves. The colors he uses are so bright and unexpected. Everyone says that it doesn't really matter what type of ink is used, it is the contrast with the skin of the individual (ie pale skin makes colors brighter). I can't believe this in light of the fact that all his pieces are vibrant no matter who they are on. Does anyone have any info to enlighten me on the subject??? So, I will definitely get some work done one of these days. It doesn't seem like he has done much work lately, but if anyone hears of him at a convention, let me know. I don't know that I will be in Atlanta anytime soon. I think he still works out of Memorial Tattoo in Cabbagetown, ATL, GA.

I HeaRT WaGoNs......

 61 Pontiac Safari
 76 Pontiac Safari
 59 Rambler
 60 Pontiac Safari
 60 Pontiac Safari
 Le Mans Wagon
 Pontiac Safari




Soviet Limo??


So, I love everything from the sleazy faux wood grain 70s Pontiac Safari (released the year I was born) and the dirty Le Mans wagon to the more desirable pink 59 Rambler. I've seen the 60 Safari in person...What a fucking boat!!! You could fit 15 kids and 5 labs in that thing! If I had one of the sleazy 70s mobiles, I would definitely have the wood grain repainted in the same tones of grain, but in flake.... If I see anyone do this before I get mine I will slit your throat.... And if anyone sees that Soviet Limo for sale, give me a shout....

Actually, if any of you know of any cool vintage wagons up for sale, let me know!

Micro bikinis continued.....












Sooo, for the second installment. All of these images are taken from Wicked Weasel www.wickedweasel.com. Now there are many of these sites. I don't know who gets the cred for making the first micro suits, but I applaud them. So, I know of the negative connotation of the 'hipster', but when it comes to WW, you will most def enjoy them.... low slung side strings and tiny central triangle. THey also have what they call 'workwear'. Far from Carharts, these are undies of the same caliber we have been seeing, but the only difference is that they are in cotton. Lastly, my fave is the term 'knickers'. It must be an Australian thing. You probably picture mid thigh bloomers as I did, but let me tell you, that is not what these folks have in mind.....CHeck them out:


If anyone reading this (ladies or gents) wants to buy me some valentine 'knickers' (the golden rose are my fave), I will post me modeling them. Man Up!!!

Another Obsession......

Pretty sure this is the 'microminimus' 

The aptly named 'tear drop'




I own this one in pink...

My first contact with tiny suits began when I saw the video 'Beautiful' with Snoop and Pharrell. If you haven't seen it check out the link. When that chic launches herself onto that surf board...OMG. Brazilians have genetically superior heinys. They were clad in Rosa Cha (a Brazilian designer) suits that I craved. At about the same time (probably 7 years ago), my friend had come back from Brazil and gave me an itty bitty bikini that until that time in the US was very hard to come by. The nineties trend of hiking the sides of the rather large bottoms (comparatively speaking) was still prominent, as was medium bottoms that just weren't very flattering and not skanky enough for my taste. After many google searches, I  discovered the site Microkitten (www.microkitten.com). I was hooked! The options of micro (2" at widest point and string back thong), mini (a tad larger with same back), and brazilian mini (with a triangle thong instead of just strings) were what I was after. I purchased a black brazilian mini and was on my way to an obsession. Check out one of my fave models Flavia on microkitten...Mmmmm. Stay tuned for future related posts...Wagons will have to wait. The competition is on, Leo!!!

-Beautiful video with Snoop....

Wagon ObsessioN!



I have a problem....I have a wagon addiction. I do not judge, I love them all. I just discovered this 2008 winner of the Ridler award. It was fabricated at the Divers Street Rods Shop (www.diversstreetrods.com) near Seattle. Also check out the Speed Hunters website for sick pics of the wagon in bare metal with custom fabbed panels Speed Hunters. This is a customized wagon with a Ferrari engine/transaxle which has been lifted straight out of a Ferrari 360 Modena. Fucking crazy mofos! I would love to take her for a ride!!! I said I don't judge, But I would prefer an older wagon....I still have a wide range which I would choose from (1950's to the late 70's). Stay tuned for more to come....I think it may go on for awhile.

Stainless Chain Maille Wallet chains and Bracelets



Another sick painting

Another painting I am privileged to own. My brothers fiance (who I have known for less than a year) painted this for me for Xmas this year!!! Her primary subject is usually flowers and it didn't even occur to me until I started to open it that it would be roses (my middle name). This chic is RAD. I couldn't have asked for a cooler person to join the fam!! Love you Gretchen!!

GTP painting

One of the paintings I am lucky enough to look at everyday...This was commissioned by George the Painter. He was given free reign to paint whatever his little heart desired. Thanks GTP!!!

The MeAT Room II





More meat....You may also notice Charles the Nomad's boots that he stole from some museum and wore the fuck out of. I need to build a proper showcase for them, but haven't gotten to it yet.....

ThE MeaT RooM

The building that houses Lock and HRs shop was an old Wise potato chip distribution center. We have coined it 'the DeLI' as we deconstruct animals, bikes, pretty much anything we lay our hands on. This is our entry way. Contact me if you have any contributions.....

Light of the World

Image via Greasy Kulture. Fucking luv this. Reminds me of a Jap bike (in Dice, maybe?) that had used a clear red plastic ribbed cup as taillight.... i am determined to find it......to be continued.....

QuotE of thE DaY

'Don't bend; don't water it down; don't try to make it logical; don't edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.' -Kafka

New Year, folks.

So am coming down from all the festivities in the last couple weeks....phew. Glad they are over as my body couldn't take another day! Had sooo much fun with the fam & all of my incredible friends. Feel so fortunate.

Also winding down from all my X-mas orders. Thanks to everyone who has supported my craft. Couldn't do it without y'all! I am stoked to get going on new personal projects. I have been storing all kinds of rad shit to incorporate in my pieces. Also have been hooked up with so much cool shit. Special thanks to Leo, Joey, Gretchen, Tone Loc, and my Daddy-O!!! Also a big thanks to my Papa for my sick Xmas presents....homemade venison jerky (which is all gone, Dad you were a little stingy with it), homemade saki, dried apples, and canned apricots in honey. The best things are those have been made with lots of love.

Soooo, let the new creative energy begin tomorrow. Today is a day of recovery. My mind and body could use it. Happy New Year everyone!!!!
