Alex Shares a Straight Edge Tattoo by Adam Barton

I spotted Alex passing through Penn Station recently and asked him about his tattoos. He has quite a few, so he opted for this piece on his lower left leg:

Alex credited Adam Barton, who works out of Santa Cruz in Samuel O'Reilly's Tattoo Parlour, although, when this piece was done, it was out of the New Skool Tattoo Collective in San Jose.

This piece, with the banner "TRUTH" is a Straight Edge tattoo and, he said, it was Barton's first hand tattoo.
Without speaking to the artist himself, I have to say for someone who didn't normally draw and ink hands, his work is commendable. Then again, this is Adam Barton we're talking about.

Incidentally, we featured a piece by Adam Barton back in 2009 here.

Thanks to Alex for sharing this cool tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
