Dig the strength it must’ve taken Ess to finish this large tattoo piece in one session. Life goes by quickly, jump on it. Wait a month to heal? No Thanks! Hammer it out, I am the anvil. She was resolved beforehand. Is this not the teaching of the ages?
In the middle I had to take a break. At a time like this, that could mean the ending of the session, Ess remained steadfast. Hold Fast. She was not saved by a personal iPod. She was not pampered with a hand to hold. She didn’t devour candy. Not one of these things delivered her through this tattooing session. What was it then that propelled her?
I am more and more amazed by the personal strength of my customers. They are in my care and I see the way they fight to win. I am in their corner, however, they do not need even me. They are the strong and the young and I am pleased to do battle by their side.
