my first year of tattooing

l_b1a990a7b1f448e2b5392e71bd0d0e3cI was:




not very tattooed

afraid to offend a client

afraid to say no to one

really into mandalas

hyped to draw with prismacolor pencils

really into the band neurosis

in a crappy relationshipl_5a68fc8d3001492bb86ffa1eb47449fc

working with some geniuses

intimidated by them

trying hard

being confused a lot

afraid to hurt people

mad that less-talented artists made more than me

not sure I was a good enough artist to tattoo people
