YOU’VE BEEN TATTOOING FOR QUITE SOME TIME NOW, IS THERE ANYTHING
THAT STILL SURPRISES YOU ABOUT THE INDUSTRY?
not really, i’ll be a little taken back when i hear of another tattooer acting like a rockstar/crybaby/bitch ass jerk or whatever but then i remember peoples default it to suck. i love people, i think we are all capable of tremendous good and compassion. we have the capacity to make each other happy but sometimes people struggle to even make themselves happy and instead of working on themselves, people just hate on everything else… it’s tired. like it takes more effort to be happy but i 100% think it’s worth it!
FIRST TAPE, CD OR VINYL YOU EVER OWNED?
WHAT WOULD YOUR 16 YEAR OLD SELF THINK ABOUT YOUR LIFE RIGHT AT THIS SECOND?
WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO AT THE MOMENT?
i’ve been listening to marilyn manson a bit lately, i mostly hit shuffle at work and just go with it. i don’t really listen to music at home, just netflix on in the background as i’m dong stuff.
BEST AND WORST THING ABOUT WORKING FOR YOURSELF?
worst thing is having to adult so damn much! i have actual responsibilities which im not 100% down with. the best thing being i have a lot more control in my life and my brain appreciates that. i find being around a lot of people pretty overwhelming and i struggle to remain calm and together so having my own little space and sharing it with a chiiler like tilly dee is pretty great.
