 Funny story, when I first started tattooing I only wanted to do dark daemonic shit.  Realized real quick the people that wanted that kind of work were dicks and usually smelled. 

 Now I tatt lots of girly stuff and 80% of my clients are honeys!!  Because who doesn’t want to get paid to hang out with beautiful women all day?

My cousin owns a tat shop..He has told me some horror stories of his aprentiship,he said he started out doing the piercings that the other guys didn't want.lol...

 Well there are many mantras in tattooing. A lot of the younger kids will only tatt their own designs, will not fix or touch others work, or duplicate an Image. I on the other hand am the working man’s tattoo artist. A lot of the people I tattoo on are lucky to get a tattoo a year. Most of them have an image they have been carrying around for a long time and are pretty set on it. They don’t need someone to change your mind or have time to wait weeks for someone to design something. Being as I do this job to make people happy,  and not stroke my own ego, I will gladly do whatever they ask. If it is to copy someone else’s work that is fine or draw a custom one. 

 Long story short I ripped off one of these  pretentious art fag kids designs and tattooed it on someone. I did not claim that it was my design but did post it online. He asked me to remove it or get blasted and I basically refused. Most of my life I have thrived on conflict so resorted to that initially. Needless to say he got all his art fag friends to attack me. 

 Realizing I was probably the one being a dick I did eventually pull it down. Then messaged the guy and apologized. A good verbal haircut every once in a while is good for the soul LOL.

Got too grumpy without Beelzebub's cilantro to calm you down!

I would specialize in Asian text, feathers, and butterflies if I was a tattoo artist.

A good looking canvas goes a long way.  Longer for some men than others....

:D

 I definitely have more horror stories from piercings than tattoos.  People passing out, throwing up, all kinds of rancid smells. You name it! :lol:

 Best story is one of my brothers. He was piercing a deaf girls clam. He said that taco was full of cottage cheese. Did one big wipe, held his breath and went in. 

 He says “how do you tell a deaf chic her pussy stinks?” 

 Best part had to be the telephone call through the translator before hand.

Been checking out my truck before I sell it. Spark plug gap on the first plug was 0.100. A bit over the factory 0.040

Damn, whomever changed the plugs last time was lazy AF, wrong plugs, or the electrode wore.

Electrode wore is my assumption because the lat one to change the plugs was me! :)

all of them were horrible, except for 1, which was 0.055

The owner thought it was black, but after I was done it was more metallic grey.

Thanks guys. I make the paint as perfect as it can be before applying ceramic. Every car get the same treatment.

I know, but I can pick and choose who I do it for and not feel bad about it.

I live in a tough area to get half of what my work is worth.
