Pinstriping From Florida Bike Rally...

here's some of the paint work I did this past weekend while at a Florida bike rally. I really enjoy decorating people's motorcycles, choppers, and trikes with striping, lettering, and graphics at these events. There are plenty of challenges while working in the field, like rain, wind, heat, and difficult customers, but it all makes the experience more memorable.

The inscription under the Wolf - I'll get to heaven by way of hell.

Neck Star Tattoos

Neck Star Tattoos pictureAs you know, the star tattoo is very popular these days, my friend said that at least 10 people get star tattoo everyday. This is a nice little neck tattoo. A heart on top of a heart on top of a heart. I’m not sure what it is meant to mean to this person, if anything. The artwork is lower end but good enough for what this neck tattoo is. And of course this tattoo is one of those that few people will ever notice. More of a personal thing. You can search on Google to find more star tattoo inspiration, but I suggest you get tattoo designs from paid websites.

About situation with Yaponchik

In short, according to (who in turn credits another source), the man who put the hit out on Ivankov is likely a "Vor v Zakone" by the name of Tariel Oniani

Tariel Oniani


As of now Ivankov is still in critical condition. Oniani has been arrested for organizing the kidnapping of a Moscow businessman. It is also believed that Oniani fears revenge for ordering the hit on Ivankov. But revenge from whom? From a close associate and ally of Ivankov, "Vor v Zakone" Ded Hasan and other criminal "authorities" like him.

Angelina's back tattoos has been edited and added to almost as much as her arms, if not moreso. She used to wear the Japanese kanji that translated to "death" on her left shoulder, but that tattoo was covered over with an elaborate Buddhist prayer of protection. It is a Sanskrit blessing in the Cambodian language, and she has said it is to honor her first adopted son Maddox.

Her lower back is the area that has been added to the most. Originally she had two tiny tribal-style designs on either side of her spine and a small dragon. However on a trip to Thailand, she had that work topped by a large tiger design.Angelina Jolie's Tattoos Pictures


While painting at a biker event last weekend where Motorhead was the headlining act, we were approached by one of the bands crew to pinstripe and letter their kick drum head. It wasn't easy working outside in the field with such little time, but we did our best, and I think it turned out very nice. Spider painted the ace of spades and striping, and I did the lettering. Matt Sorum is filling-in for Motorhead's drummer on this tour, but he's the drummer for Velvet Revolver, and previously was a member of Guns & Roses and the Cult. It was my first time seeing Motorhead, and the show was badass! Afterwords, we got to hang out with the band and get some photos...

Russian criminal movies

There's a lot of films being made about the mafia and of course the Russian mafia. Most foreign movies about the Russian mob are rubbish, though one does have a few true facts and gives some real insight into the real thing. That movie is "Eastern Promises".

What Russian films were or are being made about the mafia?

In Russia, films, shows and miniseries about crime are quite popular. It is not always necessary to have excessive violence, shooting or explosions in these films or tv shows for them to be successful or enjoy popularity. Why? Well, because these films are about day to day life and other things that the audience can relate to, besides being about crime or mafia. There's of course false or exaggerated films. Here are some of the best crime films made in Russia.


The first good action drama film, made after a long pause in Russian film-making. After the fall of the Soviet Union, economy was at an all-time low and film-making along with other entertainment like sports was going through a hard time.

In short, Brother was about a young man named Danila that comes to visit his brother in St. Petersburg after serving in the army. Turns out, his brother is working as a hit-man and and offers Danila some "work".

There's no explosions or car-chases in the film, but it's quite interesting and insightful. It offers a good look at the Russian criminal world as well as regular everyday life in the early 90's.


Danila's adventures continue, but only now in the U.S.A. Danila goes to America to help a Russian hockey player in the NHL get back money that a manager is taking from him through a dirty contract.

The film is not very realistic, unlike the first. This film is aiming to be an answer to all the American movies where American gangsters, police or heroes go to Russia and take down all the Russian "bad guys".

Banditskiy Petersburg

Banditskiy Petersburg was one of the most popular Russian crime drama mini-series in a slew of many. It was made up of 7 parts, each part ranging from 5-12 episodes.

In short, it was at times an accurate account of different crime groups fighting for power in early 90's St. Petersburg and other major cities.


One of the more costly of Russian mini-series from the crime genre made up of 15 episodes. Each episode cost around 250,000-300,000 dollars to make.

It is a story of 4 friends who establish a criminal organization in the 90's. It would be difficult to summarize 15 episodes, but in short, the plot revolves around the groups criminal activities and rise to power.


Crime drama about the adventure of 4 friends while driving a black BMW M7 e38. This is one of the most famous Russian films which also added to the popularity of the BMW in Russian pop culture.

The cell phone ring-tone of the main character in the film became so popular that the author of the ring was rumored to have made close to 1 million dollars off the sales.


The sequel to the first film. Here the story revolves around a BMW X5 e53.

This film is more of a drama than an action flick.


A hilarious comedy about 2 friends driving around on a BMW M5 e34 and their boss Mihalich. One of the better Russian comedies of the time. The action takes place in the 90's so there's lots of dead bodies and just as many stars of Russian contemporary cinema. The director of the film is Balabanov, a great film-maker who also directed Brother 1 and 2.

Zhmurki in english is Blind Man's Bluff or something like that.


This is a crime drama made in Kazakhstan about the life of a young boxer who in the early 90's joins a criminal organization and becomes a racketeer.

A very good and honest film. The story takes place in Kazakhstan.
