Always Grateful.Posted By Hanumantra Lamar on 19th August 2016
A.K.A Much made the journey from Spain to visit me here at UN1TY Tattoo, Shrewsbury to receive his tattoo. Having travelled all over the world myself to get tattooed I understand the commitment of time, energy and money invested in such a project. As a tattooer with an international client base I also understand the pressures that come with expectations of such an investment. I always want to give more back to my clients than what they expect, but this has in the past had me close to burning out on something I love to do. So the only way I can prevent this happening is by being honest with both myself and my clients. If I try and force an unnatural behaviour it results in frustration which in turn gets projected on to the tattoo and also the experience I provide for that person. So before I even meet a new client I always try and lay out clearly the way I like to work and the pace at which it suits me. All of this is done so I can provide every person who trusts me with their skin with the most I have each day.
I’m ever grateful for those who seek me out for a tattoo but it’s important that they also understand and trust the way that I work as it’s based on past experience and knowing in myself what yields the best results from me not only on that day but also moving forward in my life as a tattooer.
