One of the highlights from the @inkedcircusexpos convention this weekend was meeting one of my favorite tattoo artist @mikedevries . Thanks for for signing my copy of your book. I learned a lot from it when I first got into tattooing and felt it was a turning point in the direction I wanted to head in the tattoo world (even though I don't do a lot of realism anymore). I was razzed by my mentors for buying this stuff and wanting to learn new techniques, tips or just general knowledge from any source I could find back then (this book along with @nikkohurtado 's videos, @joshuacarltonofficial 's book) ...but I was thirsty for knowledge back then and I'm still trying to learn and progress in this industry. Trying to find a style which I truly fit into or love doing... The tattoo world has come a long way since then and is changing even faster than ever.. I feel that if you don't learn, progress or adapt, you will get left behind.. so thanks again for the inspiration to challenge myself to become a better tattoo artist every day. All the best.
