Thanks again Scott for doing this. All of these interviews are very inspiring and informative. It is just so great to hear these stories and the history of all these folks who i admired when i first started getting tattoos and who i have so much respect for since getting into the industry. Being in the southeast, it kills me that i can't come by and witness all the badassery that is going on out there in person! Please keep em coming!

Pat and i were just talking about the "mythic" quality surrounding certain artists, based on their involvement in the community and their work. Freddy Corbin has always been an artist with this quality to me, so it's funny how he talked about his own experiences with this. this interview kind of just broke that mythicness and let's me see him as just another awesome person and artist, so now i can finally walk over to Temple on a lunch break and make an appointment to get the lettering i want done by him without feeling like a lame-o nervous nerdy schmuck haha.

Such an amazing source to hear all this great bay area history from!

And to Robin/MsRad- I went and made my first appointment at Temple about two/three months ago having never actually met Freddy and he was nothing but cool to me. There's a reason the shop phone number is 510-451-NICE and the appointment card says "Freddy Corbin's Temple Tattoo "Good Times"" on it...

i completely believe it. i went in there years ago to try to track down Chris Conn's info since he didn't have a website at the time and they gave me what they had and seemed very friendly. but it's like when i met Henry Rollins for my first time, even though i had heard nothing but good things from other people who had met him, i still was nervous because he's someone who's impacted/influenced my life. Freddy's work and reputation has also made an impression on me so it's the same sort of nervousness haha.
