And you know what that means...
I always have mixed feelings about the fall. I love the leaves and the relief from the heat that autumn brings (also September 28th is my birthday so obviously that is another reason that fall rocks :) I will say that in my business fall brings a bit of a special challenge because things tend to slow down when it gets cold. The reason for this is because people are covered up so they tend not to see tattoos on people as much, so they forget about the old tattoo that they need to cover up.They also don't see under clothing really nice tattoos walking around town which often inspires them to get some work so that they can too can walk around showing it off to people. Ironically the fall and winter is actually the best time to get tattooed, because there is less temptation to swim or to bake new work in the sun...Anyway, fall I both love and hate you ;)
