Freshly Inked Interview with Timmy B
What tattoo, that you have, is the most sentimental to you?

And all my friends are like, real adults now so we’re all too busy. It’s more stressful tattooing friends sometimes because you know you have to see that tattoo for years and years to come and you’re going to hate it in a year or so, and it’s going to piss you off. Where some clients you only ever see once so, you can forget about how bad you used to be. (Hahaha)
People getting tattooed for the first time are constantly being told misleading advice, what's your advice to those people? What do you recommend for the healing of tattoos?
