Tattooing is an art form, but it is also a business and tattoos are done for the clients. I usually never turn people away, as long as they act like normal human beings. It rarely happens that a person cant meet my minimalistic standards, but then I dont work with that person anymore and that is it.
As far as age goes, anybody between 16 and 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or a guardian, I am very mindful of that.
I also always try to give good advice about the motif and the placement of the tattoo, but at the end, that is a clients decision and a client has to live with that decision, not me.
I love to work with people who are open for communication and understand that my advice about design changes and placement is there to help them have a great tattoo. When I click with the client, and if we manage to form a good relationship during the process, the results are unforgettable in many ways.
As a tattoo artist I meet allot of people, some just pass through my studio, in some I get disappointed and some stay friends for life. I had a great luck in my life to meet allot of great people that today I call friends.
