    Just had to show off his daughter's name on his arm regardless of the fact that it is 100% UPSIDE-DOWN! Further perpetuating the horrible trend of clients going into shops and getting a tattoo "just for them"! It is the equivalent of getting your favorite comic book hero the wrong way on a t-shirt so that you can look down at it "just for me". The furthest from clever that a idea could be.

      Ghostface Killa 15 days ago

      N0D3 your so fucked up, I would put my mom and dad’s name on me because they made me and my brothers and sisters, you clearly wouldn’t be alive without them, you have no respect for your parents if you really call them ordinary humans, in my eyes my mom is more then just a ordinary human bro, your clearly don’t appreciate that fact that your alive and breathing and getting fed and have shelter over your head, most moms be there for their kids 24/7 you clearly don’t appreciate that you from your mother

    • Jack Di Fabio
      Jack Di Fabio 15 days ago

      It's not a waste of Ink, money or time if you look at it everyday and love what you see.

    • N0D3
      N0D3 15 days ago

      ​+Ghostface Killa Why would I tattoo someone's face or figure on my body, of someone who is not ENLIGHTENED? I can understand if you tattoo a god on your body, that's different. I am even declaring, I really love my mother and any family members - but I'd never ever put them on my body, because they have not achieved enlightenment, they are just ordinary humans.
      Tattooing an ordinary human on your body, is waste of ink, money, and space for great tattoos.

    • N0D3
      N0D3 15 days ago

      +Jack Di Fabio I thank god till this day, that I have been blessed enough to not have RANDOM and meaningless tatoos on my body. What a relief!

    • Ghostface Killa
      Ghostface Killa 15 days ago

      N0D3 wow getting a tattoo of a loved one is cringe apparently, You clearly don’t deserve to be in today’s society if you think it’s cringe to get a tattoo of a loved one, just disrespectful and disgusting how humans like you can come from anywhere without giving a single thought into what you say,

    I did not like the attitude of the $875 artist ! I know you're supposed to be certain that you want to get the ink before looking for a tattoo artist, but that dude acted like it was all about him and that once you say hi to him he'll charge you $800 and not let you say no to anything ! What happened to "the customer is always right" ?
