Really, TLC?

Seriously? Tattoo School?

I hate to burst your bubbles, kiddies, but you can’t learn tattooing from a school. And not in 2 weeks.

I am now bracing myself for a new assault of stupid questions:

“Did you go to that school to learn tattooing?”

“How long did you go to school for tattooing?”

“How much did you pay to learn to tattoo?”

“Yeah, I just got my certificate from tattoo school. Can I have a job?”

Thanks, TLC. As if making a decent living doing what I love hasn’t been even harder these days.

Thanks for chewing up, swallowing, and pretty much flushing our lives and dreams right down the TV toilet.

Some randomness: A pig, some flowers, and…Believe!

Jessica is a super creative client with very unusual taste in tattoos. Her first pieces from me were 2 freehanded “Munchy Monsters” on her ribs with knives and paintbrushes, accompanied by lettering done in the appropriate blood and paint spatter. Rad.

Her next request was a cartoony pig being carried away by a bunch of balloons.

She finally decided to make an upper backpiece around her existing piggy and (not my work) some blossoms on a branch that state, “Believe”.

Here it is in all its random glory. LOVE IT!

My tongue is my enemy.
