I’ve been working as tattoo artist for almost 6 years. I’ve had my eye on this tattoo shop for some time, I just love it! They have a very modern way of doing it and I have seen the growth in tattooing artists. We are located in an old warehouse with lots of older equipment, I really love this shop!
Do you ever struggle with your clients? Do you ever try to get them to do something else? I make it a point to explain why it would be good for them. I try to keep my clients engaged and active but if I can’t do something they want, I won’t try. I can see why a client is very attached to a tattoo that will last them all their lives so they keep coming back, that makes me feel like a champion!
What tattoo do you find most challenging? I’m not sure what challenges my clients have, but some of the biggest are getting a tattoo with so much ink the artist can’t even see the ink, the ink is smudging. Having that type of ink in the air is a challenge, there is an amount of it all day long.
Which tattoo do you find easiest? I think getting a tattoo that is simple for an artist, something to look at, feels good.
What tattoo do you feel like you’ve got the most success with? I think my clients are really excited for what I do, my clients have told me they love the tattoo and they love the way it looked. I love seeing people react when I put stuff on, I guess it’s one of the reasons why I’m successful in my career!
When I started doing tattooing, I tried to find a tattoo shop that was open all day and night. The shop on New York Avenue is a great place to get your first tattoo. It’s open all day and all night and even some late night hours if you want more options. I love the vibe when I am there, the customers are super chill and really nice. It’s really nice to see someone enjoy this piece before it dies, and that’s what I value the most.
“There is more to life than becoming a billionaire,” wrote the celebrated Irish novelist Patrick Ness. This line, I think, is one of the most profound and beautiful I have ever read. I don’t think it can be said enough. But I’ve always wondered what the life of the wealthy, the famous, the powerful can be like.
