    Sorry this one is so short, I didn't really have time to plan out this video so I just cut together a few shots of getting this tattoo in Slab City today.

    AHHH!! @Matt Derrick im always torn when i see tattoos being done in places that arnt steril! but honestly given the situation, shit looks clean enough. i know the video is edited but yikes i hope that wasnt shaded with the liner that i saw in the intro, and tell them to pop on gloves when placing the stencil on (fingers and nails are dirty touching skin that can transfer bacteria directly into the body when tattooed) and when breaking down their station thats bio (YERS!) waste everywhere man! but right on man it looks good. most importantly thats not a reusable tube, so i hope theres a ultrasonic/autoclave, or at the very least a autoclave to sterilize that tube.
