I love it when tattoo artists presume that because you are a woman that you know nothing about tattoos and talk down to you and don't listen to what you are saying. I love that because that makes my decision of where to not get a tattoo so much easier.
Me: Well, I drew up this sketch and I know I can't draw tattoos so I was wondering-
Him: That can't work for a tattoo.
Me: (pause) Yes, I know. What I want is-
Him: This inner star would just bleed into the outline.
Me: (sigh) Yes, I know. This is smaller-
Him: This type of detail can't be replicated. And this part would bleed as well.
Me: Yes well, thanks for your time. Byebye now!
In other news, I get to wear a catwoman (original catwoman, not Halle (shudder)) shirt to work! Wheeeee! Kudos for working in a comic book store!
Update: Do not go to Adrenaline tattoos
