Having lost my high-tech job three years ago, I have been training for a new career as a tattoo artist. I have done all the necessary training to start my career but I am lacking a few items: experience and self-confidence. I am developing the fear of seeing blood but I really think that this may be caused by my lack of self-confidence. I hope to get over this soon.
I am offering one free tattoo to each person who is interested. I can only do one or two each day as this is very stressful for me and I tend to get jittery over time. I don’t want people showing up once my hands start shaking. Please don’t drink the night before as this will cause you to bleed more and it will be much more difficult to do the tattoo. Also, don't try to show up drunk either.
I ask that you bring a photo or sketch of the item that you would like tattooed. The tattoo should not be larger than a 4x6 photograph as anything larger than that will just take me way too long. I would really prefer to do smaller tattoos. If you would like a large tattoo, I can do the outline for you and then you can go to another shop to get it finished off. I will do my best to give you a tattoo that somewhat resembles what you bring in. I can show you a few on my own tattoos that I did myself and the objects which I modeled them after. If you like one of my tattoos, I can do one like it as that would be easier.
If anyone is looking for a tattoo of a black geometric object such as a square, triangle, or cube that would be a good choice. Circles are still somewhat difficult for me.
A few more conditions on the free tattoo: no burley-men this includes bikers, rugby players, Marines, body-builders, boxers, or inmates. You should not have a significant other, brother, sister, mother or father that is a burley-person. If your biceps are larger than my neck, please don’t respond. Also, if you know martial arts or own a gun, forget about it. If more than 90% of your flesh is tattooed, please go to your regular shop as they will be happy to see you. Actually, I would prefer people who are not capable of kicking my ass.
Please remember that I am doing my best to provide you a free service and I would appreciate it if people don’t come back to me with complaints like my ex-significant other. Yes, you know who you are and you are such a sissy! Perhaps, for the first few people who respond, we can do the tattoo in a discreet place on your body; somewhere that won’t stand out in case you don’t like it.
No minors allowed. Sorry I will need to check your identification to verify.
I ask for nothing in return. Maybe a smile when you leave :)
