    Jodorowsky is probably one of the biggest influences in Tarot and Film in my opinion. The man's a genius.

    Tattooers with little to no tattoos

    Went to the Cleveland Rocks Tattoo Convention last Saturday. A TON of little to no tattoos "Tattoo Artists" Made me so sick to my f'n stomach. I just don't understand some peoples dispositions about wanting to be some sweet tattoo guy w/ no f'n tattoos! Lyle Tuttle was there along with Gil Monte and Philadelphia Eddie. How Dare you show up to work, let only tattoo at a tattoo convention w/ no tattoos. i'm usually keep it cool and mind my own business when it come to what most people do, but when it hurts what I love, I cant sit back. Sometimes I wish there was a congressional committee of sorts that, could take machines away from douchey, untattooed posers. I hate the way it looks. And the simple facts remains, how can anyone trust you to put good tattoos on them if YOU DON'T HAVE ANY! Or how else do you expect to better yourself if YOU DON'T HAVE ANY F'N TATTOOS!!! "oh , yeah I'm tattooed, I got this back piece from like three people that I've been working on for like TEN years" - poser, Literally TEN years, and it's not even 80% done! Give it up and by it I mean your career! Oh, I get it you're so sweet, and understand everything about tattoos , that you dont even need them. Or lemme guess you're waiting on yer homeboy whos got like one good visible tattoo to do some sick sleeve on you right bruh! Bruh you're a fool! F-U! Get out of the business!!!!! Back in the old days ole timers like Eddie would've crushed your f'n hands, burned down your shop, took your girl and tattooed their name on her ass!!! Sorry for being so nasty, but that shit gets me so f'n angry! People sent years perfecting their craft on themselves on hookers on their co-workers, bikers, friends, durggies, and you what wanna use a f'n "tattoo skin" Get the F outta here!!! urrrgh!! Get f'n tattooed or get the f out dumbass! you look like a fool! Quit taking up space for real tattooers!

    I just conducted what is known as a "Star Spread" - 5 cards pulled from meditations on the Major Arcana. The exhibition was essentially a raw reflection of my inner being at the time. Cards that loomed over my house over the course of a year leading up to the show The Empress, The Emperor, The wheel, The Devil, The Star and The Chariot (Installation)

    When you got tattooed

    I got my first at 16. it was "Faith" on my torso. It was just the sort of tummy rocker I thought I could live with, without regret and fear of it going out of style. I knew next to nothing bout tattoos or tattooing. Soon after I became an apprentice.

    Amusing story indeed! However whenever such a subject comes about, I feel people should replace the ideal of tolerance/intolerance -with ACCEPTANCE and perhaps even forgiveness. Accept one and all as human alike. after all we all die. C/S
