International Trooper Week
This week I had 3 customers from other countries who all came to claim the highly regarded title of "TROOPER".
First we had Mike from New Zealand who ended up lasting almost or maybe full 8 hours. I was a bit stressed because I wanted to go see my friend, Jacob, sing for the first time in his new band, The Kandidate. Well I didn't make that in time but we did finish the tattoo.
Second was Mark from Germany. We didn't finish the tattoo that ended up beeing a bit bigger than we had expected so noooo hard feelings there. Since we only almost finished there won't be any picture of that one this time...sorry Mark you will have to wait with your internet fame till we are done.
Last but not least we had Tim who also were from Germany. After 6 long hours of pain and squirming we finished 1st half of the lower arm that I am gonna do on him. Second half will be done when we come back from California in June.
Since they all lasted longer than 6 hours they all earned the title of "trooper". Good job guys!!! Well done...Splendid indeed!!
The award for Customer Of The Week gotta go to Mike though. He came all the way from New Zealand. Lasted 8 hours without complaining and left one hell of a tip even though I stressed him out the door to try to catch a show. Thanks for understanding buddy!!
