Well it FINALLY happened..all those years that my ex inlaws and my ex wife for that matter had said would happen did..my son Dylan turned 18! and got his first but certainly not last tattoo and I was able to do most of both of them, words can't really describe how cool that experience was..a close friend of many years, Randy Gillies, who has known my son since he was 5 was the only person Dylan wanted to tattoo him so while Randy was doing the first star ( he got 2 nautical stars on his shoulders) he calmly told me to put on a pair of gloves so that I could finish the first one and finish the second as well, he didn't have to tell me twice and judging by Dylan's reaction he was blown away that dear old Dad was actually gonna do some work on him,Randy apprenticed me for awhile about 12 years ago and dumbass me didn't stick with it (tattooing)..anyway this was one of the best nights of my life because I shared something with my son that only a few fathers can understand, I'm so proud to see him turn into the fine young man that he's become..Happy Birthday son..I LOVE YOU BIG GUY!!!!!
