Tattoos by One of the Youngest "Old Timers" in New York City: Darren "The Dude" Rosa
*Darren Rosa is one of the last real New Yorkers in New York making tattoos as best as he can, custom for each client. In my words:

In the fall of 1984 I chose an art direction that changed my life forever.
I decided I wanted to try tattooing as a new art medium. After drawing with colored pencils, cray-pas, painting w acrylics and oils, tattooing presented the challenge of a lifetime. 30 years later, here I am to show you some of the highlights of my work on my clients too many to count!*

Yes! I am excited to announce that this year, 2014 makes it Thirty - 30 - YEARS that I have been doing tattoos. Gonna have to throw a party or something!
