Q3. What was going through your mind when you got your first tattoo and how did you

Rose with my wifes name under it , I still have my wife but not the tattoo.....LOL The
meaning was to show my Life commitment I made to my Wife.

A. This is tough for I like them all but I
would have to say my forearm Piece which was done By Micky at Mickys Tattoo Studio II ,
which placed in a Tattoo contest, is my favorite because of all the compliments I get
Q6. What advise can you give people who are looking to get ink for the first time?
A. They should make sure that they are
getting the tattoo they want to see for the rest of their life and they should also make
sure they are getting it done by a professional at a professional shop, a shop that uses
the proper sterilizing equipment, and uses proper proceedures to make sure that the
enviroment is also sterile, they should ask to see the shop autoclave, and there should be
no problem or excuses why they cannot see it, If a shop seems annoyed by your questions
about sterilization or proceedures , then maybe
you should look elsewhere
Q7. Do you have any additional comments?
A. I would like to mention that even with
Tattooing as popular as it is today at times I still have to put up with people who
dicriminate against me for having visible tattoos, Which doesnt really bother me due to I
realize that when people don't understand something they fear it and therefore they
discriminate against it, but it has opened my eyes to all discrimination , Everyone is
different whether it be , Tattoos , Race, Gender , sexual prefferences, society stature,
But when you look past all that we are all the "same" If we could all just learn
to respect each others differences, we would have a much better "America" and as
far as the old cliche goes " your body is a temple" has anyone ever seen a
temple that was not beautifully decorated?????
