    Hank got a reaction from ChrisvK in Traveling for a shop?   
    That's epic!
    The furthest I've traveled was just a hour by plane to Portland. Took a long weekend to hang in the city and got some daggers on my shoulders at scape-goat

    It looks like I'm little late to this post and hopefully your brother hasn't got some jacked up work.
    I live in Las Vegas (born & raised) The shops mention above are all rad I.e. Classic Tattoo, Battle Born, Downtown Tattoo.
    I would personally recommend Downtown Tattoo (the others are rad too!) I like the vibe and got work from a handful of the dudes there.
    Also, some other shops to check out would be ; Studio 21 (Jason Paxman is doing my back piece) Showroom Tattoo (Bundy and his crew are sweet) plus Chad Koeplinger will be guest spotting their next week (5/24-5/28) an I'm currently broke as hell!
    Hope this helps.

    Just curious, Hank, but I've never heard of a guy wearing a "tube-top"...how does that work.
    As an empoyer, if one of my employees wanted our insurance to pay for a sex-change operation, they'd be down the road. I couldn't care less what a persons sexual proclivities are, but I wouldn't participate in financing them.

    That's great to hear. I will say as an employer, I draw the line at tube-tops. No-one looks good in a tube-top.

    From the ages of 23-28 I was doing reservations for shows an all the fancy restaurants on the Las Vegas Strip. The money was good, which allowed me to a ton of traveling and get tattooed.
    When I first started the dress code was dress shirt/tie/slacks. They relaxed it down to casual (t-shirts/jeans) and actually saw productivity and moral shoot up, but ya still had to keep your tattoos covered. I didn't mind 'cause I'm a private person and didn't really wanna "show off to my co-workers", (It sucked during the summer, wearing long sleeves, the Vegas summer is hell!) but I had co-workers who would rally against the machine and engage our over-lords about revamping the dress code to allow exposed tattoos, it worked!
    An I believe productivity/moral even increased a little more. I was stoked, no more long sleeves during the summer!
    Plus, I got to see some of my co-workers tattoos. One dude had both arms sleeved with crop-circles, an each crop circle designed had a specific meaning. I wouldn't say the tattoos were good. but they were hilariously awesome!!!!
    I ended up leaving that place cause dealing with shitty tourists all day is lame.
    Luckily, I landed at a job that is pretty hip, progressive and forward thinking. (A co-worker friend is transgendered, female to male, an the insurance provided by work is covering his re-assignment surgeries!!)
    I can show up in a cowboy hat, tube top, pajama pants and flip flops and get a hi-five from my boss. with that kinda feeling in the work environment, everyone is positive and work gets done and it's a win/win situation.
    I just hope in the future more employers will understand : the happier the employee they better they will work
    and sometimes being happy at work is just wearing a t-shirt vs. shirt & tie!

    I started getting getting tattooed when I was 23 (I'm now 31)
    Also, here's a picture of something I got recently.
