Today marks 1 year since I did my first tattoo on one of my best friends @clintxedge can’t express how thankful I am for every person who has trusted me in this past year to tattoo them. You are brave souls. A bazillion thanks to @ianwhitetattoos for giving me this opportunity and gift. And to the rest of my brothers who’ve taught me more than you know @zanependergast @chipperharbin @russtattoos @timsenatattoos @clintxedge and anyone else I might have forgotten. And of course my beautiful and patient wife @abbydraughn I couldn’t be anywhere without you dear.  (at Safe House Tattoo Studio)
