Around 15 yrs ago Yes 15 yrs. lol I got my first tattoo. I do not like "cartoonie tats" I would listen to people all the time brag about tattoos they had and all I could think was? YUCK! It looks awful are they drunk 24 hrs a day? lol I still wanted a tattoo but, it was a big decision. I was not going to just get a piece of crap put on my body just so I can have one! So, I waited. One day... I finally seen a tatto I REALLY LIKED. It was not what I would have gotten a tattoo of BUT, the art was amazing! It wasn't just a " Tattoo " It was beautiful. It was ART on the body! All I thought at that moment was, I have to know who did that! Here I was thinking they were gonna tell me they got it in some crazy place in florida or something far away. The guy said his name was Chris and he is right in Brockport. I thought.. AWESOME! Someone close to home! :)
I didn't just go in and say I want that! I looked at his work and the pics in the books. I had looked thru MANY artists books for atleast a year. I was hooked when I got to see his work. His art " Stands Out " and that is EXACTLY what I wanted. I strive on the unique things in life and I have an eye for it. He didn't have a problem talking to me and answering any questions I had. It made me feel more at ease and comfortable.
I found something to this day I can tell my mom, I will " never regret " lol. It is not only beautiful, it was also done free-hand by him and alot of people can't believe it. I can also "toot the horn" Thanks Chris. :) I get the most compliments of all of my friends and the people I know with tatoos still to this day!
Thank you for you are a true Artist of your kind! p.s. I was not paid for this nor do I know him personally vice-versa. I really am appreciative that I was able to find someone talented enough to be what I feel is " SKIN WORTHY " for life! Thank you.
