I toured in a band from the time I was 16-28. Our bass player was beginning at tattooing back then. We would have 600 miles to go in a van and to pass time he would practice on us. Or in different places in the country I would get one. Once I grown, I had some of the more homemade ones fixed. I like tattoos but now 16 year old girls have them. Everybody has them. Used to only sailors, inmates, bikers and rock n rollers had them.
