50 Gazillion Degrees

Oh how I love the smell of a tattoo shop on an extremely hot and humid summers day.

I would have never known how many different smells and colors sweat can come in, if I haven't worked here.

What a wonderful life experience this day has been for me.

In other news: Willem got to finally finish the dragon he started a couple of months ago.

Guess who it is!

That's right, your favourite not blogging blogger.
It has been quite busy in the new shop, so I really didn't have time to blog, it's not an attitude thing, don't worry.

Here you have a picture of the three angels working.

Actually, to tell you the truth, the bossman is on vacation, and since he left we haven´t been working at all, we just got a couple of friends to sit in the tattoo chairs and pose for this picture, so that he'll think we're doing our job and working our asses off.
