A little bit about us......(by shadowink)

  • It ain't easy on the outside looking in...That's how it felt for all the years I let myself feel outkasted by the fools and fucks who were too worry about the surface to realize what a real person I was..It wasn't until i started getting tatted at 17 that I felt like I had control over that part of my life..then almost instantaneously people started gravitating to me...ironic how the people who separate themselves from the sheep find comfort in each other....but it took me years to realize i didn't want approval from the other side..or that i didn't want to be anything like the normal predictable motherfuckers..lol...
  • so i started separatingmyself....found homeis that made music and got tattooed to find uniqueness in life...it's hard to be unique nowadays where people treat image and ink like fashionable trends and shit...
  •  not me...and not my homies....i wanted to be a tattoo artist since like 8th grade.. knew it was in my soul. I'd been making art since I was two, so i knew art was my goal , but only after finding a tattoo magazine did I realize it was my life. 
  •      So I fought. Fought to get tatted..fought to meet artists.. fought to get equipt. at a time when there were no reputable outlets for tattoo equipt unless you were in a shop...fought to get into a shop..fought to build a clientele....fought to make music during this whole process without losing one or the other side of my life...
  • all the while people in each field tellingme I'd never make it as one or the other if I didn't quit one for the other...well i didn't..and now ten yearz later I am a succesful tattoo artist, rapper, and clothing line owner. I wanted this line since I was decorating my shirts wishing it was tattoos i was wearing instead of fucking cotton!...and i always vowed to make a brand of clothing that repped for the tatted up people without being apologetic or in a traditional way.....
  • this ain't Ed Hardy type shit...this ain't the other "tattooed and employed" type shit...this is for the underground, don't care if we are accepted, only want to be authentic to our true self, on a mission to find happiness in life muthafuckers...yaheard me....hope you are here becz you get that and want to be part of the mission, the movement and the mf Inkfamily....but if not fuck off...eat a dick....our strength isn't in numbers, it's in loyalty, honor, having heart and conviction, and standing up for what the fuck we believe in...
  • peace.....
