merry christmas

every tattoo for one year update, photos 90-98.  i wish you all happy holidays. if you are already a customer of mine or jinx proof's, no need to read any further. you already know.

and my christmas gift to you is a word of advice. be wary of any craftsman that offers a sale on his services.  i am consumed with my business and craft as many of you may already realize. i look at other shops websites and facebook pages when i'm bored. often finding myself looking at crappy tattoos as a source of amusement. one thing that most tattoo artist lacking skill have in common is lack of business and low self worth.  they find themselves putting their craft (i use that term loosely for these people) on sale. i can assure you it is difficult to give a %100 percent when you have put your life on sale. so when you're shopping around for a tattoo, look for quality, not a sale. SALES do not apply to quality tattoos.
