On the money: A tattoo of George Washington

It’s not uncommon to see George Washington or Benjamin Franklin tattoos and it’s with good reason. Money – or the lack thereof it  – is the reason we’re constantly on the grind. Money gives us options, money gives us a hope, and money is one piece of paper that can make or break your day.

Of course, the balance between money and happiness is the key to living a good life. A man with money, and no happiness, really has nothing at all and studies have even shown that money can actually demotivate us. But you don’t want to hear that, so let’s keep pushing.

On that note, here’s a few tattoos done by resident artist Fernie Andrade. The tattoos pay homage to the “dead presidents” and they’re powerful images that are sure to get your attention.


It’s all about the Benjamins.

We couldn’t end a post about money without including Wu Tang’s C.R.E.A.M.



Who doesn’t love a good George Washington tattoo? Not only was good ol’ Mr. Washington, the very first President of the United States, but he also became the poster boy for trust, unity and wealth. Lately he’s also become the new face and icon of #MCM (Man Crush Monday)  for men and women all over the world and why not? Here’s a tattoo that our resident artist Fernie Andrade busted out last week.

It’s interesting to note that the face we’ve connected to wealth is also the face of the former President who also had his own financial woes. Here’s some little know facts about George Washington:

– George Washington had to borrow money to relocate and attend his own inauguration.

– George Washington never went to college.

– Mr. Washington had to borrow money more than once during his Presidency as most of his money was tied up in land holdings.
