tools of the trade

Not one to “chair hop” (going from shop to shop) when it comes to barbers and tattoos, I've been going to the same two guys for 10 years or more. Sooooo…the day I decide to get another tattoo to my collection, my favorite shop (Philadelphia Eddie's) was closed for lunch…(Blew my chance for some photo ops too) Or so I thought…

In the window of the shop this day, they had a really old tattoo artists station from how tattoos used to be done. There were the old powdered ink jars, pack of smokes, Listerine, even the old doorbell amped up power setup. Its amazing because just from this crude display alone, made you wonder how more guys arms weren't amputated back then.
Quite naturally its not done like this now, but sheesh…must've been some pretty brave sailors in those back alleys.
