I intend to devote alot of my work to the city I love. I was also raised a die-hard NY Yankee fan, and didn't have much of a choice in the matter. So on a whim & on my own one summer afternoon, I walked into the new tattoo shop in my Park Slope neighborhood, (not really known for their shops) Hand of Glory Tattoo. I like to support local business, and didnt think this one could be messed up too bad. Little did I know years later the guy I went to, Chris Torres would become the character everyone loves to hate on the reality show NY Ink.
Not sure where the actual idea came from, and I didn't think twice about it being my first unconcealable ink. It's subtle, but not subtle at all. You know where I stand when it comes to baseball & you know what city i rep - no question. There isn't much more to it than that - I fuckin love it. That's it.
