Default Pitiful Experience Today

Sup guys, thought I'd share something that happened today to me....

Well I was up in Macon today visiting a family member in the hospital, well visiting hours are so short and spread out I had time to kill, so I decided to go to a local shop(Its a chain, wont mention the name to keep from causing a fuss).

Went wanting to look at flash and portfolios to try and get some ideas for the sleeve im going to be getting done. Mainly just killing time, but researching as well.

Well I went in and was the only person at the place, other than the one guy working. Well I looked around for a while at the walls and ports for a while making mental notes of things I liked.

The guy asked me if I was looking for anything in particular, I honestly replied that I was wanting to get a sleeve done, but was unsure of several things and was wanting to look around at the art for ideas, he was pretty cool asked what I had in mind and was like yea that sounds sweet. I told him I really wanted to be involved in the whole creative process by being able to tell the artist exactly what I was wanting and that I wanted to be able to pick an artist whose style would suit what I was going for.

SOOoo he proceeds to get up from his chair behind the counter and walk up to talk and show me his personal art and magazine articles done on him.He also throws in that he's one of the most well known tattooist in the country and how while in GA hes prolly one of if not the best in the state, Well the guy was so DRUNK he could barely stand, and the alchohol on his breath almost knocked me down at 3:00 in the afternoon!(At this point I just thought, well he is just working the desk today and the actual artist is in the back working)Well I wasnt about to get anything done from him, so I figured what the hell we will talk, Well he goes ON and ON and ON about his self and how his style is this and that, the guy can barely put sentances together, I'm talking HAMMERED!!!!! I thought man this is so retarded, and then in pops 3 girls...prolly in their early 20's wanting flowers on the ankles so I decide to step aside and wait to see the artist and talk to him, well off to the back "Capt'n Morgan" goes...about 5 minutes later he reappears and HE is the artist! I was like DAYUM!!!!! I really felt like saying hey ladies not a good idea, but they werent blind, Im assuming their sense of smell worked just fine, so I decided to mind my on buisness.

I only stayed for the first girls tat, and she seemed pleased BUT WOW! This guy needs his ass KICKED and the owner needs his ass KICKED! VERY SAD!

Bad thing, this guy is their "Guest Artist" from CALI.

I've seen some sad crap and witnessed some crappy shops, but tis one had me so dang mad I had to share!

WELL enough of that, I did see a couple of peices of flash I really liked, and I am even more excited about getting up to see you guys!

LATER

You are right Bond.

I got home and done some looking around on the net and old mags I have.

Nothing on the net about him.

Really feel bad for him, he was a pretty cool guy, he just has some problems he needs to tackle.

The mags he was in ranged from 83 to 94, so he may have been the man at one time.
