Interview By Freddy Corbin Freddy Corbin: When it comes to customers, what is it that a customer might do that bugs you the most?  What things drive you the most crazy? Nick Rodin: A customer that you know doesn’t trust you I think is the worst customer. Good answer. Like if they’re just second-guessing everything you do.

Interview By Shane Enholm Shane Enholm: When is the first time you saw a tattoo? Freddy Negrete: The first time I was really struck with the whole tattoo thing I was 12 years old.

I grew up in a white area of San Gabriel but I knew the Mexican community from school. I was a troublemaker white kid so they liked me… Read More »

Interview By Lindsey Carmichael Lindsey Carmichael: But you are not the type of person I know to be affected in a negative way by nonsense. And most of the people who would have negative things to say about the show or whatever—it wouldn’t affect you. From what I’ve seen, in your life- only great, positive things have come of this. So, I’m just wondering, what the experience was like? It seems at times overwhelming, but mostly great…  Dan Smith: Well it’s such a funny thing, because everybody and their dog has an opinion about it. Yet, no one really knows about it. Everyone wants to know about it, and wants to talk about it, but it is what it is. How much thought and energy do you want to put into the fact that it’s a TV show? In order for tattooing to be a TV show, it has to cover some stuff that’s exaggerated, or that might not be 100 percent accurate, or whatever else. That’s just being realistic about what TV is. LC: It’s a show. DS: Why should that make you have an opinion about somebody that you don’t know, haven’t met and haven’t had a conversation with? You know? They film for 50 or 60 hours a week and put that into a 45-minute show… Read More »
