Welcome to back home... (NOT)

So, last nite... after waiting on prints to get to the shop, and then waiting for a few people to come and get their preorders so I didn't have to worry about selling someones print at the West Texas Tattoo Convention this weekend in San Angelo, and then waiting for the 5:30pm traffic hour to die down, we finally got on the road, way too tired from waking up and packing, and then having to deal with some shop drama, I was tired, he was deliriously tired, and we were both anxious about the show..

    • I have not quizzed my clients on their supplements usage so I cannot comment on that aspect. One thing I have noted in regards to blowouts is last year I was doing an unusually large amount of thigh tattoos. I was experiencing blowouts consistently and it had me alarmed. It didn’t matter how gentle I was.  I tried setting my Spectra Xion machine to a softer hit setting and it did not help. One day I tried using a harder hit setting and suddenly the blowouts in the thigh area stopped.
    • I take fish oil. Are these supplements bad for tattoos in general or only during healing?
