you say I only hear what I want to.
you say I talk so all the time so. so I turned the radio on, I turned the radio up, and this woman was singing my song: the lover’s in love, and the other’s run away, the lover is crying ‘cause the other won’t stay. #wip #jaketongdotcom  #tattoo #stipple

One of my most hipster moments happened this morning, where I rode my bike to work and stopped off at #sweetpea, a #vegan bakery, then went to get tattoo supplies at #rcssupply. I’m the envy of every 14 yr old hipster wanna be. Only in #Portland. Ugh. #inmy30s #stayoungadults (at Hawthorne Foodcarts)

These may be three of THE DEADLIEST tattoos I’ve ever drawn. These are up for grabs for a great deal, but you have to sign 2 waivers. #lineart #linedrawing violated #jeanclaudevandamme 3 chin #stevenseagal sadness #chucknorris #jaketongdotcom #tattooflash
