    Default My son's new shop

    Some of you have been interested in my son and his tattoo career. On his own initiative, and with his own money, he started his own business a few months ago. If you would like to know how to contact him now, click the logo below.

    Site is pretty much unreadable on my monitor. Anyone else?

    The colours aren't the best for reading but I could read it.

    I bet those ones on the feet hurt a little bit. When do we get to see your tattoo Bill?

    I was able to read the text and to see the pictures. I don't like tatoos at all on anybody, but I expect that this site would appeal to those who do.
    Cheers,
    Frank

    If I had one, I'd probably show it. I'm probably the only person in my entire family without ink on their body. I like the art work, but having it on me is not my thing.

    Very Nice Bill! It takes a lot of guts to start ones own business. You must be very proud!

    Being self employed myself, I know what he will be going through, your day never really ends. I have to admire him for putting himself out there, especially when you say he did it on his own! You know that's not totally true, his up bringing made him who he is, and made him well prepared to have the drive to do this. In this day and age you just have to admire a hard working person like your son!

    btw, I am not a tat person, but looks like he does some amazing work! Keep us updated!

    He will no doubt stumble along the way, being self employed is a daily struggle. But the true test is when he picks himself back up, brushes himself off and says bring it on! No doubt he is that type of guy.

    all the best...scott

    Thanks for the link Bill. I've been researching tattooists since mine went into semi-retirement at the age of 40 (it can be a lucrative career) and your son appears to have great talent. I will have to put your son on the list of potentials.

    Looks interesting. I'm an old guy with no tatto's, but on a long bicycle tour last summer I decided I would like to get one. A small bicycle on my calf (weird eh!). I have not done it yet, any "Tattoo palace" I've seen have not looked that inviting for an old guy to be going into. This is very much uncharted territory for me. Maybe this is an unexplored market, tatoos for us aging "boomers".

    hoss, at the age of just-turned 18, and a 5-year pre-boomer, I somehow felt it was de rigor for people in the naval service to have a modest one on the forearm, plainly visible. Thirty five years later on surfacing in the corporate world I learned it was far from attractive, and after running out of long sleeve shirts discovered medical office procedures to have it removed. But, boy, having it removed sure was not a lot of fun.

    Woodwreck I take offense! My calves look very nice, thank you very much. Now, as for other parts of me "not so much".

    At this stage of my life, I'm not really worried too much about my leg being exposed in the corporate world. If I do it, it will a very small bicycle. I am a little worried about my wife "killing me" however!
