HARD AS NAILS

We didn't finish the entire tattoo today, he had only booked me
up for two hours so I'm going back for more ink on Friday.
The tattooist thought I was hard as nails, a really good sitter.
I had a lot of practice over the years, my longest sitting was
8 hours.

I've been offered a job.
All I can say is that it's a webzine who is highly uncensored
and in your face, much like the magazine VICE.
My journalist skills are limited to a certain tattoo magazine,
the school paper and blogging for years here and there.
This zine insist and I don't think I can say no.
I only live once and I want to accomplish as much as possible
as long as it's creative.

Here's a spread about Kat Von D I wrote back in 2006,
I also translated an article about the Finnish tattooist,
Jarno Kantanen, in the same issue.

Sorry, Swedish only.

Hard as a nail indeed. The longest I've been being tattooed was almost 2 hours and after an hour I was ready to go. Congratulations for the job offer! I would love to read the article but my Swedish is just rubbish. 6 years studying it and all I can remember is a word here and there. That's just appalling...
