    I quit my job at the machine shop today to accept an offer from a friend to go back to managing/counter at his tattoo shop. :eek3: I'm extremely excited. There's a good chance I will start piercing again as well. We still need to discuss those details. :noes::noes: I'm so excited I just had to make a thread and let everyone know!!!

    Yes and no. :hs:

    I made more hourly at the machine shop than I will be making at the tattoo shop BUT if I start piercing again I'll be making a lot more because that's commision on top of my wage.

    I don't remember why you got out of it in the first place. Care to refresh my memory?

    I know that you went back because you missed doing male genital piercings :naughtyd: :mamoru:


    Just kidding man. Best of luck. If I had any artistic ability I'd try to be a tattoo artist :hs:

    I left the other shop for personal reasons. There were some events that happened that made me not happy with where I was and where my career in piercing was going at the time. I thought it was in my and my customers best interest to get out because the passion for piercing wasn't there for me anymore.

    Im jealous. I have been asked to apprentice for piercing a few times, but until my son is older and can be on his own in the evenings it isnt going to be able to happen.
