I dig this site. I want to connect with old friends. I just responded to someones question about what their painting was worth.Im sure i was rude. If you went to art school,fab. I wasn't so priviliged. neither were alot of tattooers,Im a little freaked to see how hip it is to call yourself a "tattooer". I worked for GTC for 8yrs, he learned on his buddies and little brother. In the 70s they called themselves "tattooists" so people wouldnt think you were such a piece of shit, it insinuates artist. Now some have glommed on to Tattooer. Yeah ,I thought it was cool as shit when Higgs said it about 20yrs ago. My bizns card has said it for years. but if you went to Art school , If yer Daddys a lawyer, quit playin dumb. I really wish the economy was better.So I could sell my shitty art,or not ,I didn't go to art school. My daddy is a retired elevator man. he taught me to draw and paint. God Bless Him . that son of a bitch is talented. But anyways , if your still reading this crap, good, maybe im not stupid.If you told any of them old school tattooists that you went to art school they would have chased your ass out of that shop so fast. lets pick a tune. are you "old school" or are you the smartest person you know.
