Q1. Where did you get your first tattoo and do you know by who?

A.  My first 2 tattoos were done on the same day, but a friend that tattooed in his spare time, major amateur.  I was fortunate it wasn't totally messed up, but definitely a future cover-up.  I was 14 and I didn't want to wait till I was 18 for my first tattoo, I should have I take tattooing a lot more seriously

Q2. What was going through your mind when you got your first tattoo?

A.  I was at the school yard next to my house on a weekend, and all I was thinking was "Geez I hope the neighbors don't call the cops thinking I'm in trouble or something".  I didn't cry or yell, but it did look suspicious with me not having my shirt on and some guy on top of me for about 20 minutes.


Q3. Is there a meaning behind your first tattoo and what is it if you care to share?

A.   My first two tattoos were out of rebellion of course...I have my first name tattooed in cursive on my back (left shoulder blade) and a black panther crawling up my left breast.  The panther was supposed to be a tiger, but he wasn't a very good artist like I said, so it turned out a black panther.


Q4. What is your favorite tattoo, where is it and why?

A.  Wow, that's a hard one.  I don't have one favorite.  I love all of my tattoos, but if I had to say which one gave me the most compliments it would have to be my armband and my thigh.


Q5. What advice can you give people who are looking to get ink for the first time?

A.  Make sure it's something you really want to get done, not just something that looked good on the wall of a tattoo shop.  Don't jump into getting one done because your in the shop, take your time and really love the tattoo you choose.  It is permanent after all.


Q6. Any Additional Comments

A.  Check out Uncle Tim at he's done all of my professional work
