I’ve posted several times on the topic of tattoos and the people who get them. But I’ve never had an opportunity to talk to a tattoo artist, until today.
I jammed my way into some very crowded Metro cars to make my way down to M Street where Paul Roe [Fez #30], the owner of British Ink was taking part in an art exhibition called Artomatic.
Paul was doing pre-session consultations while his colleague, Cynthia, hummed away on a guy’s right bicep. He squeezed me in for a chat and I even got to sit in the tattoo chair.
The interview ran just under 12 minutes and I couldn’t find two to trim so I could post on YouTube as a single file. So it’s a two-parter.
