This week we continue talking with tattoo artists about the culture of tattooing, on-the-job experiences, work/life balance, preconceived notions, and pretty much anything else they felt like talking about. Last week we spoke to two relative new-comers to the industry, this week we talk to Brian Kelly, who's been tattooing for 10 years in Minneapolis, Ireland and Germany, and Nic Skrade, an established tattoo artist with over 22 years of experience and one of the owners of Uptown Tattoo.
