Russ Abbott is a tattoo artist. A good tattoo artist. Like other tattoo artists, he is a man defined by his individual work – evidenced through Ink & Dagger, his highly successful tattoo parlor in Decatur, GA. Given his artistic lifestyle, serious dedication to detail, and obsession with fine products, it seems only fitting that Abbott lends a hand with everyday essential must haves. Abbott hooked up with Hypebeast to offer another installment of Essentials, and we loved it so much we wanted to share it with our kellan sock lovers. Beyond a quality pair of jeans and a shirt on his back, it’s easy to see that to Abbott, the tools of expression are everything.
