    I started getting tattooed in 1985 and got addicted pretty quick (this is an addiction...right?). Fell in with the right crowd and continued travelling and getting tattooed by some heavy hitters for 10-12 years. My life took some crazy twists and turns and I changed careers twice and got married and had kids. Those changes put tattoo collecting on a temporary hold that lasted almost 20 years. Fast forward to October of 2014: Seeing a local tattoo artists hand painted flash in a newspaper article was all it took to bring me right back to the warm, stinging embrace of my dormant addiction. A week later I was getting tattooed again...... (sheepishly walking up to the podium and clearing throat) Hello, my name is Brian and I'M ADDICTED TO TATTOOS As of last Thursday, I've had 8 sessions and a bunch more booked for the coming months......

  12. I also got tattooed by Chad on Friday 3/18 at Name Brand. I had met him a few times before and sitting with him for a couples hours shooting the shit was fun. He did lament a bunch about settling down. He had a lot of "I'm really burned out travelling" vibes going on in what he was saying. He said he missed having a house to come home to and thought that maybe his time had passed to open up his own shop now that he'll be almost 40 (practically a kid..ha!). We had a long conversation about pizza and he said he would love to open a pizza place....no frills, just "a great slice shop" as he put it. good times, and i wish him the best.... - - - Updated - - - I also got tattooed by Chad on Friday 3/18 at Name Brand.
