Julio Avila Posted September 20, 2010 Share Posted September 20, 2010 i know you guys have em, so lets hear em. hell they dont even have to be apprenticeship stories. just crap youve witnessed or put up with at a shop. i apprenticed under this methed out biker fellow that claimed to be related to charles manson. he did look like him and was a nut job just like him as well. i didnt even know about meth til i started working there. he once decided to teach this guy to tattoo in exchange for this huuuuge rock of meth that he brought with him from kansas city. then he figured it would be a good idea to cut it and start sellin it out of the shop. kansas city guy is now dead. after a few day binge, bossman was doing an american flag on this truck driver. he outlined it, shaded in the blue where the stars are then proceeded to fill in the red stripes. he did the first two stripes, then onto the third. while doing the third, he started going down as opposed to across. i was watching him do this tattoo but was very much a newbie. i didnt say anything figuring he knew what he was doing. he did a little more then tells ol dawg "lets take a break, you can go outside and have a smoke" he does and bossman starts walking to the back of the shop. i follow. then he says, "holy shit dude, i just fell asleep doing that tattoo!" he did a couple of bumps and downed a mountain dew. came back to the tattoo and proceeded to black shade the shit out of it! truck driver never questioned him and left a happy customer. to me it was just another day in the shop. there are tons more stories, but lets hear somebody elses. Dean and Scott, i KNOW you got some!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
