Part 1, the day begins.

After a week long of tattooing back in New York, I finally got a day to relax, or so i thought.  I believe in seizing the day, the moment, taking full advantage of the now, and this is exactly what i had planned for my last day of this trip.  Days before, at the Kings Ave opening party, i had run into my old friend and fellow tattoo artist, Yoni Zilber of New York Adorned.  We have always shared a kindred respect for one another, something more spiritual than simply coincidental.  The next morning, we simultaneously texted one another to say hello and good partings.  I immediately asked if he would be willing to tattoo me on this trip, and the wheels were set in motion for a monday meeting of coffee followed by a session.  Here is some background on Mr. Zilber; he is an Israeli American with an accent that makes you curious for more conversation, a permanent fixture  at New York Adorned for the last 10 years, a current apprentice under a Tibetan Thangka master painter.  To find out more on Yoni and to see his personal portfolio, please follow his site at   http://www.yonizilber.wordpress.com 

After coffee in Brooklyn, we made our way over to Adorned in the city.   Yoni to the right setting up. We decided on a buddhist third eye upon my neck.Here are some of Yoni’s sketches for tattoos decorating the shop walls.

Tattoo 1 is done.  A great morning with an even greater friend.  Now onto the next tattoo of the day…
