My fourth visit to Get Ink and Manny was rockin' a Base 1 shirt!
Manny's sleeve took 40 hours! I'm only about 16 hours in now.
Today's color palette. (I had to look up the word palette, there is like 3 ways to spell it :)
Got to know this baby for about three hours.
And the result, check out those wood grains Geppetto.
This red star was so faded that I was able to make it orange!

Spent 2 more hours under the gun of Manny at Get Ink Tattoo to get my 2014 GT Ex frame colorized. Also had one of my stars spiffed up a bit. Next time I will get that Tiki finished up. Enjoy the pain!
I know I know technically that's a Channel frame on the computer screen. He was using it for color and shading. Below is the actual frame photo that the tat is modeled after.
So this is Ex proto number one. It has a wishbone chain stay which the production model will not have. It will also get the sick GT logo embossed on the seat tube, which this one does not have.
If you are into old school 7" vinyl then you know what that 45 insert is on my forearm.
Yes that's a Solid bikes OG 43T sprocket on my shoulder and nice new nautical star.
A skatepark tour of CT would not be proper without a visit to Edgewoods, unless you have a fear of open spaces. No crowds and plenty of random objects placed at odd angles to get your shred on... if your creative enough.
While I was there I met this local cat named German. His set up was clean and his frame was blue so right there you know he is stand up dude. The chrome bars really completed his ride. His friend had a sweet red machine that was nicely done as well. It was obvious these guys were into BMX.
On the way home we stopped here so Jimmy could get a workout in. Then while driving over the Sikorsky bridge my bike rack decided it had enough of Jimmy's bike and spit it on to the highway. His beautiful bike narrowly missed a ton of cars who could not be bothered to slow down. After several summer salts and about 50 yards later it lay in the gutter with very little damage. Well okay his bars were cracked but I think they were cracked before the flips. Jimmy is an animal on his bike!
