  2. you doing your seminar in fresno still? what day you know? and time.

  4. Good evening Shotsie. Thanks for adding the Tattoos and Blues Tattoo Convention to the site, however, there were some discrepancies if you could pls take a look at what I wrote there.

    As for the blog posting on the Humboldt County Tattoo Convention, we try not to delete blogs, post, threads and/or etc unless they are spam, completely disrespectful, and/or break other forum rules. At this point and time it is still a civil conversation that is rather insightful from many perspectives/lens'.

    thanks for continuing to update us on all the work you are doing.
  5. I was looking in your gallery and I loved your work. Just figured I should say so
  6. I look forward to your postings! ty for sharing....
  7. Thanks they don't seem to garner much of a response. Perhaps as time passes there will be more people actually have ing somethin to say. I do appreciate your letting me now what you think
    Shotsie
  8. Enjoying the contributions to the blog section from the writing to the videos. Thanks!
