  9. Also, this isn't a theoretical argument, where logic wins. "If this is true, then this must equal false" It's a real-life discussion about real things and when it comes to tattoos and tattooing: The tattooer is ALWAYS right. AND STEWART COMES OUT WITH THE WIN!!!!!!!! well put sir..hahaha i used to work for a guy who only had 6 tattoos...none bigger than a softball...he was too picky or they hurt to bad...fuck that shit...i busted his balls every chance i got, especially in front of his customers...how can you tell someone how its going to feel or how to relax and breathe thru it if you have hardly done it yourself...he is a fucking parasite to my craft that i've struggled for and dedicated my life to, even before i was tattooing i was pretty heavily covered...it's a lifelong commitment. |

  20. Hey guys, i am excited to finally present to you a product i have been helping develope for the past 6 months! Here is the email i am sending out to shops and artists to get the word out. i have been testing these for the past few months now and they work awesome! If you are interested please get ahold of me and let me know. I will be able to send out samples after the 1st of February. The purpose of this email is to introduce you to Ink Health (Ink Health) and our “Custom Tattoo Bandages” and services. We are the leading “Custom Tattoo Bandage” company in the United States. We align ourselves with the finest Tattoo Artists, Promoters, Shop Owners, and Distributers as partners to assist them with their “brand” recognition. Though the use of our custom bandages (put your LOGO, Design, Contact Information, Date and Time to Remove on a Transparent Polyurethane, Non-Allergic, Water Resistant, 100% Sterile, Surgical grade bandage). No more tape and Saran Wrap (i.e., nobody wants waded up Saran Wrap and tape hanging on their body with blood, lymph and tattoo ink pooled up 10 minutes after they get tattooed), rather you provide your client a healthy, securely fitted and clean bandage that says our “brand” is the BEST! I am certain that you would agree with me that cross contamination is a real concern in our industry. The cost of providing your client a safe and healthy bandage that addresses this is priceless. We encourage our clients to roll the initial cost of the bandage into the price of the tattoo (i.e., the client pays for the bandage) and the cost of the bandages are 100% deductible as a business expense. We look forward to partnering with you to develop a bandage for you or your shop. Let us put all your information, LOGO, Design, Color, Font on a bandage for you to use on your clients. We guarantee that this will “brand” you and your shop as something very special. You will have a walking talking billboard . Our reputation for service is second to none; our entire staff stands to work with you and your staff to develop your “100% Customizable Bandage.” Please contact me at your earliest convenience should you have any questions 509-939-9993 ©.
