Just a quick note, Tattooing is a great feeling, holding the machine in your hand, knowing what you do will be on that person forever. Its a great feeling that someone trusts you enought to put a permanent mark on there body. However our art work and our finished product can sometimes not be the greatest thing. I have had many tattoo designs that I have not been to thrilled with, and even though the work comes out clean the finished product dosent look all that cool due to the fact that the original art piece is not that great. Its just unfortunate that in todays economy its hard to tattoo on a full time basis, therefore we are forced to take other jobs that make it hard for us to find the time to tattoo. this is not me giving up, however it is me hoping for a better future, hoping that the economy gets better so that us artists can do what we do and ink the world.
