Too many things going on and I’ve neglected the blog. Here are a few things from the past month.
Taking a short break from all things skulls. A rabbit and chihuahua pendant with moveable body. 925 sterling silver with chain ($100 USD at firstname.lastname@example.org). These won’t appear in the regular catalog but I can make a few custom pieces. http://www.lukesatoru.com
Recently got my hands on a Ricoh GR1v thanks to Bellamy at JCH. I had contacted him about one ages ago but wasn’t until recently that I mustered up the coin and courage to purchase one. Early shots with my new friend.

I appreciate and respect the art of tattooing on myself and on others. Do I enjoy the pain that comes with getting tattooed? No, but I think it’s an integral part of the process, to come out on the other end having endured the discomfort. Perhaps one day I will be completely covered with a collection of memento’s both significant and superficial.
My friend Claire recently got tattooed by monks who specialize in these protective omens. There’s a lot of magic here and I am wary to get one myself.
The Luke Satoru collection is now featured on http://www.notjustalabel.com/luke_satoru. Very excited to have my work accepted as a part of this group.
Picked me up a new denim jacket by Engineered Garments and some prints by Kenzo Minami @ Nepenthes NY.
*Work-in-progress pieces for upcoming collection. I don’t mind showing these because they will go through a significant metamorphosis before they are done. At the same time can never tire of skulls, well at least I can’t.
