How time goes by so FAST, May 25 2009 is my 49th year tattooing, and 50 sounds good, so l really got to go for the big 5-0
the past was a blast, gone now, but it was great, all the great ol characters l,ll never forget...
working somedays from 12 noon till 5 am the next day, to get all the sailors finished.
Saturdays, line ups at the shop like a movie show, and having 20 to 30 bootcamp-ers all gettin the same tattoo...
lt still is kool most of the time, lots a changes needed to keep up with, people are different now..
l met a lot of great people, made lots of super lifetime friends, tattooers and customers, many now working and hangin out in the big shop upstairs, but l think of them all the time.
They dont make people, like that NO more.
somedays, l get a bit sad that those times are gone, but when l think no more rolling around in vomit, blood, booze, broken teeth and glass, the sad goes away...ha

You now officially deserve the ability to call anyone tattooing for less time than you a "whippersnapper".
