Who or what inspired you?
Adam West inspired me with his ability to whip an image up with mastery and bold artistic understanding. I apprenticed under Adam in Panama City Beach, FL in 1990. The one and only time I called a Tattoo Machine a "gun", he pulled out a .38, put the barrel to my forehead, and quoted "this is a gun boy, that's a simple machine, know the difference".
Brutal. What about your relationship with your clients?
