“Let ‘em reveal how much it cost for this life controlling my vice. No way, hell no, uh uh, if I’m wrong I don’t want to be right.” – Kendrick Lamar

Man’s Ruin is based on the tattoo flash of the same name. The flash is centered around three things that are supposedly man’s ruin: women, drinking, and gambling. Growing up in the City Of Sin, these three vices are really prevalent. We added some floor speakers, boombox, and DJ equipment into the mix. I’m a big pinup artist fan so we used the works of Gil Elvgren and others as our inspiration for poses.
