Q: What did your family and friends think about you getting into the tattoo business?
A: I have literally had my grandmother tell me that I need to find something better to do with my time, but I have also had my mother who was ecstatic that I had finally found some purpose in my life. So yes, I have had a little bit of both you know. Tattooing is one of those things that can be bit taboo depending on who you are talking with.
Q: Because the only people that get tattoos are freaks, rebels, rock and rollers, and bikers right?
A: Yeah, I assume that is how it goes. [People think that] the second you get a tattoo, you want to go out and start getting into trouble and everything else right?
Q: How many tattoos do you have?
A: I don’t know. That is a good question. At least…thirty or so. I kind of lost count, so let’s say upwards of thirty.
