I was always taught my history is important. When the godfather of tattooing arrives at your shop, you open your doors, your arms, and your ears. Every one of us owes a massive thanks for not only the history he has preserved, but more importantly the history he’s created. Thank you for the time, the lessons, and the opportunity to sn**ch up some goods.
