Friday's and Saturdays are typically great days for any tattoo business. Most are off work and they just got paid. Get tattooed before you hit the club. Get tattooed on your way back from the club. Etc etc
Usually I hang out with my son Fri-Sat so I miss these days of so-called craziness. I prefer more laid back sessions/appointments which is why I try to keep a weeknight/Sunday schedule. This past Friday, Dre Dre and I tattooed until about 4:30am unintentionally.
It's amazing how fast time ticks by when you're having fun chatting, designing, tattooing and downing red bulls trying to put in the best lines and colors you can. Dre completed an appointment, then a walk-in then another appointment shorty after I walked into the shop at 7pm. I called in a double appointment for matching tattoos (originally scheduled for Sunday) to leave my Saturday and Sunday open for other appointments. His and hers matching tattoos involving a sun kissing a moon. Both Luis and Shelly have never sat longer than an hour for a tattoo so they both struggled to power thru. In the end everything came out great and we were all smiles.
Ended the night/morning with a Mickey D's breakfast extravaganza. Team no sleep.
I'd like to say BIG thanks to all my clients and potential future customers. It's because of you all I'm privileged to do what I love for a living.
