Manifestation is exceptionally powerful. It may seem like total nonsense if you don’t believe it, but even hardened skeptics have to admit that there is something to be said for putting your intentions into the universe. Daniel Bailey, known in the fashion industry as Mr. Bailey, manifested his success in streetwear when he got his first tattoo at the age of 15.

“When I was playing basketball in school, I remember another basketball player who had his last name tattooed on his arm with little stars,” says Bailey. “I thought it was the coolest thing ever and got it. I didn’t tell my parents beforehand and when I got home I was like, ‘I have a tattoo.’ They thought it was a hoax, but afterward, to be honest, they totally agreed. Then tattooing just got addicting over the years.”
