I am restless, never content with my product.A client may be in awe of what has been done and that is the objective. I am never happy with my work, only happier at times. Taking a month off from tattooing has made me realize I thoroughly enjoy the process. Tattoo artists who are completely happy with their work stagnate and risk the chance of having a major mistake. Collectors run the same risk.
At the end of the day I want a piece the client will be happy with for the rest of their lives. It may not be the trendiest or most popular but will stand the test of time when they look back on it.
