  4. But this isn't work of a scratcher...everything I do is sterile and wrapped up....machine, cord, table, green soap, all that shit gets wiped down and wrapped up. ...yes i am working out of an apartment but not everyone learned in the shop when they began....i walked into the shop like any person shopping for a tattoo would....i was just checking out the spot and getting a feel for one of local spots....nothing wrong with that just like any collector would...maybe i am shopping around for work that i find interesting....i told her i am soaking it all up...tonight i just soaked up something that
  5. Happy 4th y'all...today I decided to take out the bike out for afternoon ride...and saw that a local tattoo shop was open...i stopped by the other evening and saw that they were looking for an artist and a piercer...so tonight i decided to roll on up and check out this local shop...they happened to be having a july 4th barb-q in the works...so fun and festivities were in the works...I walked in and asked if i could check out the shop and look at their books...the woman was polite and said yes...but i could tell i was getting a lil mean mugging thrown my way...its all good...she asked questions
  6. There we go...that wasn't so hard. I will save graffiti talk for another forum that isn't why I am here. While I will admit my motivation is money it isn't my primary motivation for going into tattooing. I have spent years studying art, design, and craft. Primarily tattooing is a trade, trades are often done by craftsmen at times design comes into play and in few rare instances it can become art. I save my art practice for my own time, and i will design when it is called upon, but right now I am embarking on a journey of a craftsmen in a trade. For me tattooing does seem to be a natural life p
  7. Really this is slaying? come on folks you all are a lil harder then that...I don't think slayed is the proper term...but if this is getting slayed then so be it....its all love
  8. Yes writing isn't about the money...true I except that premise...then why have so many writers going into Tattooing? for the love? for the craft? or to support there writing? Its just a question...
  9. It might be a lil rude....but fuck it...what am i going to do and cry about some asshole on the internets? LOL :) <--- that is for the asshole...
  10. I thought i needed to do my initiation first, then drop 10 thoughtful comments before i start posting pics...i have no problem posting pics...and will do...and looking forward to getting ripped apart...
  11. LOL not surprised by the comments....probably well deserved. If I were to check my personal motivations yes it is about the money, nothing wrong with that. Then again it wasn't an apprenticeship, I was allowed to sit in and watch and learn. Yes maybe it didn't go fast enough, maybe my ambitiousness got the best of me fair enough. Ok I can accept the scratcher title. I am not interested in picking up bits and pieces to find out what will fit. I am here to learn what I can. Help or don't help Hate or don't hate no worries i will keep it moving. Respect.
  12. Nope no apprenticeship yet? American Graffiti is on the top of the list to check out how a walk-in shop does it... no argument there. Thank you for your two cents.
