New tattoo day!
« on: July 16, 2013, 09:23:49 PM »
Well, actually it's a few days old now.

I have a mate who has been tattooing for a few years now, who has just landed an opportunity at an apprenticeship at a local studio. He's built up a pretty decent portfolio, and he's a good artist, but this studio want to see him in action before they take him on. So he needs a willing victim so he can showcase his skills
He's only been in Wellington a few months, and he doesn't know heaps of people who'd want a tattoo at the drop of a hat. So I get a call " hey bro, I'd owe you big time if you came in and got a free tattoo in the next week."

I love his art, so I jumped at the chance. Going back next week for another too  ;D

Well thats just cool. If I had a friend that slung ink, I'd  be covered completely! I must say I have a few that I had done at the drop of a hat.
Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.

Yeah, I only got my first a year ago, and this one was number 7 (about as addictive as building pedals I'd say  ;D ). It's been really awesome watching my bro's skills develop. Having said that, I'm still really happy with the first tatts he did for me.

Really nice, kind of an old Sailor Jerry vibe.
