Art in room 402 at Ace Hotel New York by our resident thief of hearts, Johnne Eschleman. In his own words:

A version of the Thieves Family “Husband and Wife” tattoo. the acronym on the left signifies “Prisoner of the Zone”. The acronym on the right (spelling of the Russian word for “bread”) signifies “I Shall Preserve My Only Love.” I changed the image from the original book version, but here’s the book title in case we should include with photo on the blog: Russian Criminal Tattoo Encyclopedaedia Volume Two. Okay, that’s it.

Thanks, Johnne. See you soon.
