thats right 40 hours,with benefits,it just doesnt normally satisfy a creative soul. I tried. work, sure, soon.

Yeah I understand, I feel the same, getting a graphic design intern this summer, but I guess it will work for now :confused:

Thanks Shannon for joining us.

The stories I've heard from the Sac days have been pretty impressive to say the least and you have delivered some new ones. Thanks and keep 'em coming....

The truth for anyone listening that gives a shit about me is that ,my home is in foreclosure, i should go bankrupt, and im not sure why i ever left the business. damn , i make really bad life decisions. Im thinking a lot about coming back to it. I feel like as hard as tattooing is to do for a living, I care about it. and Damn working for large companies sucks so much. I now remember why I started tattooing in the first place. So im kinda hoping for suggestions. I really like the Jax beach area.

    • This is my first tattoo, had it for 2.5 weeks. Been keeping up with aftercare thoroughly. From what I’ve read I’m going through the “milky phase” of my tattoo but in two parts(parts circled) it’s not as much of a milky, hazy white. Instead it’s pinkish red and I’m worried they are scars forming. Do they look like scars? Can they be touched up? Or do they even need to be touched up at all, and after they heal will the ink show through? I’m super paranoid about this since it’s my first one. Also my artist is actually out of the country right now and isn’t answering his phone which makes things tough.
