Persue 1xRUN print – Put It In The Ditch, Brah!


Persue just dropped this limited screen print on 1xRUN. For $50 you can hang this bad boy on your wall, or cop a framed edition for $100. Act quick though, because the offer only lasts for 13 more days.

The print was inspired by a fucked up situation on the highway, as SD writer Persue (per-sway) explains.

“Before we left California for the East Coast Rime told me to put some ideas together for our stop in Detroit and at the 1xRun headquarters. He wanted to introduce me to the guys and help push getting me to release a print. Because things were hectic before leaving I wasn’t able to get anything together. By the time I got to Chicago I still didn’t have anything. Rime, Mason and I had been through a few cities by then and were pretty tired. The night before our stop in Chicago we were in Nebraska. Nebraska was fucking nasty as all hell. It is where we hit a patch of black ice and did 4 huge 360 spins down the highway with semi trucks barreling down the highway behind us. All I could get out of my mouth was “Put it in the ditch man”! That became the quote for the rest of the trip.” – Persue

‘“Connotations”’ is a chance to revel in Tattoo relevance” says Bay Area Native, Jesico. For these three artists, Tattoo is about endless study and first hand experience so that it becomes second nature. The compositions in “Connotations” reveal the artists’ devotion to studying the great artists before them and preserving Tattoo as an art from. In the words of Jesico, ‘“Connotations” pays homage to the repetition, creativity, intrigue and wanderlust that is Tattoo.’

Over the course of the last decade, Jesico traveled around the world piecing together bits of knowledge passed down from greater artists in order to develop his own cohesive style. Jesico has designed tattoos and produced art from Japan to Switzerland, and now resides here in the Bay Area making tattoos full-time.
