Default walkins

seems more and more studios are appointment only.

we always did walkins.....no appointment needed.!

some folks just dont like waiting these days.?

girl in yesterday.....i want a name tattooed on my wrist.

our jack replied.....it will be an hour wait.....!

fuck that.....she replied......its only a name,2 minutes will do it....!(now the bloke waiting to get part of his sleeve finished off butted in)....hold on a minute here....i have been waiting over 2 hours and am next up to be tattooed.....who the fuck do you think you are just to jump the queue.!

this girl then relised she had bitten off more than she could chew....

now she left with a red face.....only to return sporting a fucked up name poorly done from a house scratcher.

can you cover this ugly mess on my wrist.

you where in earlier..?where did you have the fuckup tattoo done.?
a bloke who tattoos from his bedroom in the estate.
he wasnt busy and igot tattooed strait away.?

why do some folks not think before they ink.
the bloody tattoo was only a few hours old and she wanted it off......as if it was our fault she wouldnt wait.?

she was a bit of a cunt really......we offered to cover it up when healed,..... but she was still not having it, she fucked off......probablly to harrass another studio to cover it up.

SOME FOLKS NEVER LEARN.

BETTER TO WAIT THAN TO HATE.....their tattoo that is.

Its exactly the same round here. We're not technically appointment only but in reality it usually works out that way cos we're so busy. People come to us for fix ups and say "oh I wanted it done here in the first place but you have to book!"

Doh! Maybe we're busy for a reason? Our waiting list is not usually long, especially for little jobs, we can normally turn it round in a week or less. But no, they'd rather rush it and then get frustrated when we can't always fix stuff.

I have limited sympathy...........

I've no sympathy at all. I've been on a waiting list to start my backpiece since January, and I'm still not at the top of the list.

often you've gotta wait (and travel) for the best work, and if you're not prepared to do that, then good luck getting the piece of shit tattoo that you deserve.

Even if you have to wait a year its a small time in comparison to having a lifetime with a piece of shit on your body.If these dumb fuckers aren't prepared to wait then they deserve everything they get.

Agreed, no sympathy whatsoever. You get the tattoo you deserve. I was doing some bits on a fellas arm last week, can't remember what now, he popped outside for a bit of air and the girl waiting butted in with, "..but can't she just do mine quickly now while that bloke's outside?" Sqquuee I could scream sometimes.

Gotta love that opportunistic streak, though!

I had 3 dif couples walk in yesterday while i was doing a long session.

Each couldnt speak for them self.. The person with them did the talking. They all wanted work there and then.
Then when asked NONE of them knew what they wanted!

jesus!

I think it's only a good sign when you can't have it there & then, when the waiting list is long. I'm very impatient but I'd never, ever, go elsewhere for a "quick fix" (cause that's what it sounds like to me). I have enough cover-up jobs already.

The best shop in my city ONLY does walk-ins. I think the fact that he deals with people like this day in and out is what has made him a grumpy bastard!

Im sure if he did bookings/custom work he would be a busy man and maybe a little happier.
