Default im alive! lol

I'm back from the dead, and I finally think I have the motivation to finish my car. Or atleast get it running. Things have been rough and are still somewhat rough. I'm currently an apprentice at a tattoo shop, its fun as hell but financial rough at the moment! Its good to be back, hope everybody is doing well!

You are a little late for a resurrection. Easter was two weeks ago. But I seriously wondered if you was dead.

I hope you are healthy and happy even if you are a little poor.

What have you done in the last year or so?

Better late than never! I'm indeed healthy and happy, I have finally decided what I'm doing with my life and that's becoming a tattoo artist! I started the apprenticeship about 6 months ago, before that I was working for a sub company of KIA. That job sucked ***!

Deciding on what you want to do in life is very under rated. What helped you decide an a career path? I'm guessing it wasn't an aptitude test.

I have always been skilled with drawing and have always had a strong interest in tattooing. Im covered in tattoo for the most part. Most artist are poor as hell. Compared to other jobs involving art, tattooing is one of the ones that pays the best. I want to be that guy that people place all their trust in to do something that is permanent. I could go on for days about all the pros of this career choice.

LOL

When I was shopping for a cheap used car, my first, my mom's boss brought his old Tracker to the office to sell me. My test drive was backing the thing 20 feet out of the spot, returning it to the spot, hopping out and handing the keys back to the guy and telling my mom I didn't want it. They both stood there looking at me like I'd lost my mind. I was about to turn 16 and was practically gonna be given the thing (I had $1400 from cutting yards all summer and that was gold to a greasy insurance salesman). The car couldn't have been more than 5yrs old, but there was no way in hell I was gonna drive it. I can't imagine what one of those is like to drive now...

Welcome back.
