I’m still dragging a bit of bum today, but it’s getting better. I just do not catch up on sleep like I used to.
But life goes on and I have a Harry Potter opening to attned tomorrow starting at 8. Ye sI am that nerd. My daughter is coming to. She and I will be going with a friend of mine and her daughter. First they will show Deathly Hollows part 1 and then at midnight the 3-D showing of the last instalment of HP will be showing. I am so excited! I do not think even my daughter is as excited as I am. Can’t wait. Peeing in my pants here.
On completely unrelated news, shall we even open the can of worms that is TLC’ Tattoo School? Jesus. I don’t get it. The premise is learning to tattoo in two weeks. OK, Stop Right There. Would you subject your stomach to a chef who had only been cooking two weeks? Hell no, not me! How about someone in nursing school, would you let them touch you after only two weeks? Fuck no! I don’t even let a beauty school students touch my hair and that’s way less permanent.
Any profession takes time to learn anything and even after you have learned the fundamentals (which I assure takes longer than 2 weeks), it takes years to master your trade. The man who says he has mastered everything about his profession, is an idiot. Life is learning and the minute we stop learning, we die.
I get frustrated because now we will have a shit ton of kids with tattoo machines thinking they are going to tattoo when in truth few shops are going to hire these punks with the little experience they have. Which mean they will tattoo out of unsanitary conditions like their house. TLC and the tattoo school are setting them up for failure (and lawsuits for fucked up tattoos) and all for ratings and money. So fuck the people right? Because that’s what they are saying. Fuck us.
Not to mention the way TLC has treated the tattoo industry in the past by filming shows like L.A. Ink and the drama there. They have made it into a soap opera.
To make it clear, the tattoo industry, for the most part, is against the TLC show. It is wrong on so many levels.
Anyways, as I stated earlier, I still feel in a fog so rather than rant unclearly I will close with this ….
FUCK SOME TLC
