tattoos and lighting by Damion Ross

Damion makes really nice tattoos. He is Anti-technology so there is no link to myspace or facebook, he defiantly does not have a blog, and vary rarely does he even take pictures. He is stuck in the past and keeping it real. Damion also collects and sells antique lighting in his spare time when he is not tattooing at New York Adorned.
If you would like to get tattooed by Damion get in touch with him the old fashion way; call him up or stop by and make a consulataion with him through his assistant @

New York Adorned

#47 (between 2nd and 3rd street) 2nd Avenue
New York, NY

If you are intrested in his antique lighting email him @ halfcentury71@gmail.com (don't expect a speedy response, as they did not have email in 1920)
On a personal note me and Damion could not be more different as individuals but its those differences that enrich our friendship. In many situations I ask myself "what the fuck would Damion do"?, then i smash the glass over his head and kiss the girl.




I snapped off these photos when he wasn't looking and Damion built this light for me last week.

Inner Helix

Pia Arrobio came in Sunday and gave me free range of her ear. We choose a inner helix piercing based on her anatomy, the uniqueness of the piercing and her request for "something that dangles". I think it turned out beautiful. I'm looking forward to seeing Pia again in a few months after this has healed. 

Inner Helix: 18k yellow gold captive bead ring w/ a 22k gold Indian floral connector bead and 22k gold diamond shaped dangles (3)

108 physical collection

Gift given by Damion Ross.

september, 30 - October, 3 2010

Piercings transcend age, race, sex and class. In an average week i see approximately 60 people; piercings, insertions, complications, consultations, pre/post surgeries, visits from parents, MRI's, etc... Some Clients I have become close with over the years, some I never see again. This week i took some quick head shots of the people that enter and exit my life in 20 minutes or less. It has always been interesting for me to meet people in stressful situations. I truly have the best clients in New York City and I'm grateful for everyone that crosses my path...
