Once again, the flash challenge doesn't have a damn thing to do with flash. That kid Nicky ended up on my shit list for the use of 1 simple word- Haters. He referred to Roman and London as Haters. Well, I'm a hater- I hate anyone that uses the term 'hater'. This is one of the biggest piles of bullshit to come around in recent years. People these days refer to anyone that disagrees with them as a hater. The fact that someone has a differing opinion does not make them a hater, it just means that they don't agree with you. Only a few minutes into the show, and Jessica has another breakdown when John implies that she is not an artist- fucking hilarious. I like when Jessica loses it- not because I'm a dick (I am, but that's not the reason). I like it because last week she read and commented on my blog. Here's what she said:
THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH CRYING. JUST BECAUSE YOU'RE AN INSENSITIVE GUY DOESN'T MEAN THAT IT'S WRONG TO BREAK DOWN WHEN YOU'RE UNDER SO MUCH PRESSURE. BUT YOU WOULDN'T KNOW THAT BECAUSE U WEREN'T THERE. I'M A GOOD ARTIST WHO DRAWS FLASH AND HAS LOYAL CLIENTS. INSTEAD OF RANTING LIKE A MEAN JEALOUS DIRTBAG HAVE SOME COMPASSION. FUPM.
I didn't even know what FUPM meant- someone filled me in- it's Fuck You, Pay Me. What the hell does she want to get paid for? I can watch her cry for free every Tuesday night at 10pm. So, now, because I am a dick, I'm gonna hammer her after each episode- guess that makes me a hater. It's amusing to me that she even found and read my blog. She must be doing google searches for the words Best/Ink/Jessica- seems a little narcissistic if ya ask me.
I thought Roman quitting the challenge was great- I'd have quit too and said, "How about you have us actually do some flash? It's called a flash challenge". Just call it a fuckin' 'Art Challenge', and I wouldn't have such a problem with it.
I guess it's Jessica bashing time again- she said that 'Seasoned Tattooers' don't like doing kanji. Don't get all wrapped up in yourself and think that you're too good to do kanji. We're tattooers (well, I am at least)- bottom line, you put pictures on people- you're not something special. These stupid shows (besides all the other ways they've hurt the tattoo industry), have made tattooers think that they're doing something so damn special- you're drawing on people- get the fuck over it. Well, after 19 years of tattooing there are days that I wish someone would ask for a kanji or a simple little rose. Some days, I just don't want to get involved in a project. You do what the customer wants and hopefully they leave happy (and a little lighter in the wallet). In fact, I have to go to work early today to try to catch up on some customer drawings that I'm behind on. Man, if they just wanted kanji....
I thought that most of the tattoos were mediocre, which was proven by the top 2 tattoos. Neither one was overly impressive. The tattoo Nicky did sure as fuck didn't look like 4 hours of tattooing, and the gray shading looked scratchy. Give me 4 hours to do a B&G skull and rose tattoo, and you'll get a hell of a tattoo. Here's a B&G skull and rose tattoo I did on a friend of mine a few years ago, and I know it didn't take 4 damn hours.
There were some super Joey mad faces at the end of the show when Roman basically quit. I thought he was gonna pop a blood vessel. Calm down Joe and stick to making these kids cry. If you're gonna get all worked up could ya at least give us some of those sweet Joe Capobianco hand gestures- kinda like angry guinea jazz hands.
