5 years ago i was a tattoo apprentice. i started a cover up on my leg, and never finished it. My apprenticeship didn’t end up working out and i gave up. Today i got the opportunity to put on gloves again and finish my leg. It’s not perfect, and honestly not something i would put on myself now. But i stayed true to my past self and finished it the way i would have wanted to. I’m feeling pretty good right now. tired. but good.
