The title says “This Is Trish”, but it’s not the way most people know Trish. You see, this is Trish being serious in front of a camera. Usually, she is all smiles and exuberance, but I made her get serious, so she would look cool for the photos. She works a few days a week across the street from the shop at The Green Earth. It’s a natural food market where I spend all of my tattoo money on $5. drinks.
I started tattooing Trish about a year ago on her peony sleeve and we have worked a pretty steady schedule since. We are now very close to being finished with two half sleeves. Just a few more finishing details and we will be on to the next project.
I do love being a tattooer. I focus a lot of my effort into learning and developing skills, but I equally enjoy getting to know my clients. I get very excited when a client I have not seen in a while contacts me about starting another project. It’s like hearing from an old friend that is coming to town.
