I normally don’t explain my tattoos but I know some people are always interested in my thought process so I’ll say a few words about my recent one.| I was raised Catholic. I went to Catholic school growing up. I was an alter boy, used to even serve funerals and get out of class to get paid for it. I’m obsessed with the art surrounding the religion itself. I fell in love with this Seven Sorrows piece. Women have played a huge role in my life good and bad. From my Nan to my mom to my friends and even some who have come in and out of my life. I thought it was very unique that this figure of Mary had no face, and I thought it was quite fitting. To me, she has many faces. Anyone who knows me also knows my obsession with the number 7 and ravens, which are very religious birds and very misunderstood. | Thank you to my friend, the very talented @mike_lemos for this unbelievable piece. I could not be happier. #inked#inkedmag#guyswithtattoos#tat#tattoo> #sevensorrows#virginmary #tattoo #art#raven
For those of you who like to read: Lately I’ve been thinking about a lot of topics focusing around my brand. One topic came to mind that everyone is afraid to talk about that i get a lot of shit for and I thought I’d take the time to elaborate on it. In my opinion, I think a lot of men, especially straight men are afraid to express their sensuality. I hate to say “toxic masculinity” because I’m not a fan of that phrase. I’m more so saying masculinity can vary and can be sexual. The way you look does not represent your sexual orientation, just like hair has no gender. For me, I always was influenced by rockstars in the 70s-80s. Hell, my favorite wrestler is HBK and he posed naked with the damn belt. I love to push limits in fashion and how I represent myself as a brand visually and verbally. I’ve lost support, followers, and received a Lot of negativity over my antics like this. With that being said it does take a lot of confidence to put yourself out there in that way surprisingly in today’s society, especially being straight. I wanted to make a post like this to say hey, it’s ok. Love yourself. Be yourself. I don’t care if your gay, or straight that shouldn’t dictate how you represent your image. Two things you need when focusing on self image is confidence and respect. These two things will not only build you up, but will also give you the strength to build others up. (I feel like I wanna cut a Scott Steiner promo and say for all my freaks out there but only wrestling fans will get that haha)It’s also funny how I turned this picture into an inspirational speech but hey someone has to say the stuff other people won’t. Be you, and don’t be afraid. #inked#tattoos#guyswithtattoos#guyswithlonghair#fashion#menshealth#fitness#hair
What a year. This was a good send off into next year. My first time in Vegas, would ya believe it? Thank you to everyone who made this possible. This was a great event and a group of great people, even my model...even though the video may show differently. When the people who host you are wrestling fans, you can’t let them down....especially when The Cutthroat Kid is in town. Who’s next?! #vegas#education#haireducation#hairstylist#barber
Social Media isn’t REAL. Followers don’t MATTER. Doing good work doesn’t matter, as long as people are happy......OK, if you ever hear me saying this stuff do me a favor, grab a chair and whack me over the head with it. Social media is what YOU want it to be. You choose your reality. If it’s fake, that’s because you’re fake hunny. Followers don’t matter to everyone, but they mean the world to others. Personally, I’ve traveled the entire world because of my followers, not just my talent. That is why I’m so grateful for my supporters. You can be the best at what you do, but if no one knows then you’re the only one that thinks that. Doing you’re best work in any career sets the tone for what people expect from you. Instagram Vs. Reality doesn’t exist for me, and it’s a lot of people’s excuse to show what they secretly want to show. You know? It’s like those people who need to get drunk to say what they want? I made social media my reality. I say what I want, And I do what I want. I would have a lot more money if I was a sheep and just kept my mouth shut, but hey as most people say you gotta love what you do. So I created something I love so I don’t mind doing it. This year has been a turning point, an evolution, and an eye opener. Combining professional wrestling with my hair career was the best choice I’ve ever made. I’m looking forward to meeting new people and traveling to new and old places doing what I love. A wise man once said “If you book them, they will come.” Where will I Be next? Where should I go next? Where ever the universe takes me, but I’m looking forward to this next year whether it be in the ring, on stage, in your shop, or behind my own chair. I can assure you, with me, it’ll always be reality, just remember some people’s reality isn’t yours but that doesn’t mean they’re fake. It’s a cutthroat business,baby, and you better have some thick skin! #thecutthroatkid#haireducation#prowrestling#hairstylist#barber#shoot#heelofhair#alwayscuttingpromos#over
This is from my “Fuck Hair I’d Rather Wrestle” collection. Funny story, all these know it all social media guru people talk about engagement and the do’s and dont’s of social media, well besides suck it, I have a few more words for ya. I got more engagement on a body slam, me dressed as a penis,me in my underwear and my grandmother (what a combo) than anything else. With that being said this page is not a hair portfolio. This is my life, which hair is apart of. I think it’s important to always have a face behind your work in the hair industry, just like a good gimmick to go along with your skills in the ring. Oh, and here is a non-faded haircut for those of you that get off on those types of things. #menshair#hairstyles#retro#guyswithcoolhair
My Nan is 95. I can’t imagine being that old. She’s seen it all, and I always enjoy the story about her turning down Frank Sinatra. She still walks everywhere, and still cleans house at bingo. You know those Italian women from the Bronx, they just never stop. Here’s to many more years. Sorry about all my tattoos, I wore the turtle neck just for you Nan!
