What is the most unusual request you’ve had?
To go to a porno shoot with a customer. I didn’t.
What do you wish you had known when you were first starting off as a tattoo artist?
That everything will be fine. There have been some high anxiety moments in my career. One day I was driving to work having a freak out about getting a drawing done, and I had a realization that it always works out. Since then I experience much less anxiety.
Hopefully lots and lots more of the same.
