Angel Tattoos For Men Biography
Welcome to PakEarn.com (Facebook Photo Posting Jobs)
A retired New York Police Department (NYPD) detective who gave 20 years to the job, Angel Nieves is now the organization’s official Pet Investigator. He joined Rescue Ink after meeting some members at a tattoo parlour in 2007, and he has been helping them save animals ever since.
As a police officer he arrested murderers and drug dealers; now he tracks down a different type of bad guy — with the same meticulous care. He is always either on the phone or on the computer, adding details to the cases he keeps in a huge file at his home office. However, some of the cases he works on have to be turned over to law enforcement, so Angel gathers as much information as he can and turns it over to his friends in blue.
His ability to read people came in handy as a cop and now with Rescue Ink. Once bitten in the face by a pit bull that needed to be gotten under control at a street fair, Angel only blamed the owner, who should have understood his dog better. The dog should not have been in such a busy place, which made it necessary for Angel to take the dog from the owner to get it under control. He grew a goatee for a while to cover the bite mark on his chin. Today, the scar is a reminder, not of bad animals, but of how easily animals can get into bad situations — and that is what he and his Rescue Ink buddies are working to prevent.
Angel grew up in the notoriously rough Harlem neighbourhood of New York City — a Puerto Rican kid in the primarily black projects — where he earned his first degrees in street smarts and self-defence. He spent a lot of time at his grandmother’s house nearby, where she had chickens, roosters, rabbits, dogs and cats. He sometimes stole animals from slaughterhouses and took them to her. He also used to keep pigeons in a coop on the roof of an abandoned building. He spent summers at his family’s farm in Puerto Rico, and though it was quite a change from the city streets, he continued to nurture his dedication to animals there.
Today Angel lives in New York with his wife and three daughters.
Nicholas Richard Maccharoli Sr., or “Batso,” is perhaps the most recognizable of the Rescue Ink crew because of his myriad of tattoos: Buddha protected by dragons and a cobra, and bats on his head, a tiny spider on his right ear, a snake on his left ear and the barbed wire ring that circles his neck. At 75, he's a fearsome-looking man, one who holds a Connecticut state record in power lifting and is still dedicated to a workout that integrates martial arts and weights.
He developed a lifelong love and respect for animals tending livestock when he was young. At age 10, he had a job in the circus working with the trainers who cared for the lions and tigers. But not all of his childhood memories are pleasant. He admits his mother could not control him — hitting him with a broom or tying him to a tree — because he was bad. He got into trouble in school often, fighting all the time, and got thrown out after the fifth grade. He never learned to read or write properly. At 13, he was sent to a tough all-boys reform school in Connecticut, where he picked tobacco.
Soon after that, he got into cars, learning how to fix and customize them. He says he could feel how much paint or lead to apply, trusting his intuition over standard methods of training. He’s still in love with cars, especially the ones he customized himself.
Now Batso applies his ability to sense things with animals. He can feel their energy and connect with their pain or their happiness. After losing one of his sons two years ago to Lou Gehrig’s disease, he is committed to living his life happily, and that means helping kids who remind him of himself, and animals whenever and wherever he can, in his own unique way.
A guy who looks like he could snap you in two, Anthony Rossano checks in at 1.46 metres, weighing 145 kilograms — it is easy to figure out why they call him “Big Ant”! From farms in Italy to the streets of Brooklyn and Queens, Big Ant learned early on that respect is a way of life.
Well known in the gearhead community and the biker world, Big Ant is an old-school guy who loves Harleys and hot rods. Two wheels or four, there is nothing he cannot tear down, repair and customise. He likes his rides to have power and style, and whether he is on the road in his ’50 Buick, running the quarter-mile in his ’66 Nova or screaming down an interstate on a custom Harley, Big Ant turns heads wherever he goes.
He is a true tough guy who can be a scary, menacing presence, but at the same he is a very funny guy with a big warm heart. Big Ant believes that animal abusers are weak, preying on defenceless creatures who cannot defend themselves, and he will not tolerate them. Once confronted and educated by Big Ant, most decide to change their ways rather than having to deal with him again.
Big Ant’s love for animals can be traced back to his childhood, when he lived on his uncle’s farm just outside Naples, Italy. The farm had all the animals you would expect, including chickens, cows, pigs, dogs and cats, and he loved every one of them. When his family moved to New York, his parents kept chickens and goats in the backyard of their home.
His household includes two dogs, a cat, a turtle, two rabbits and a well-populated fish tank — all of which he has rescued. Big Ant feels that having a house full of wonderful creatures provides an environment that is both stress free and nurturing.
