16. Girlfriend’s mom walks in and told me she wanted a giraffe on her panty line, then proceeded to tell me it’s because they have 10-inch tongue.
“Coworker wanted his wife’s name on his neck. He was a tattoo artist himself and knew what would happen. She served him papers 3 weeks later.
Girlfriend’s mom walks in and told me she wanted a giraffe on her panty line, then proceeded to tell me it’s because they have 10-inch tongues. When I pulled out a razor to shave the area for the tattoo she told me it wasn’t necessary. At that point, I went and got another tattoo artist.
I have Batgirl on my leg because I wanted a tattoo and there was a comic book on the floor at the time. I mean, it’s a good tattoo, I just have never given a crap about comic books. I knew this at the time and didn’t care. Still don’t.”
17. I tattooed ‘Demontray’ on the same lady twice.
“Actual tattoo artist for 6 years, piercer for 13, so I’ve been in shops for awhile. My personal sigh story is a lady who came in wanting her bfs name on her ass. I always try to talk them out of names, but at the end of the day I like paying my bills on time so if I can’t talk them out of it I will generally do it over having them walk. (unless it’s on a face/neck/hand and they don’t have visible tattoos already.)
So I can’t talk her out of it, or into a reasonably small size so it’ll be easier to cover if things go south. His name was Demontray. But we do the tattoo and over the course of it she explains that he’s in prison and she is waiting for him to get out. I do a good job and keep my mouth shut, people make lots of choices that I wouldn’t.
Three months later the same lady comes back and I’m thinking Oh shit, now we have to cover it. Nope. Demontray is mad because he can’t see the tattoo when she visits and he wants her to get another one that he can see. So this time she actually listens to me and we did a second Demontray tattoo on her chest, but this one was small with flowers and she will be able to smack a rose over it later if she needs to…
They didn’t have conjugal visits, so she could only show him the picture of the tattoo. You’re not allowed to drop trou in visitation.
