Bleed to Ink

My family has really been working a lot and haven’t spent time with my kids. I miss them, I would want to take my wife and two kids on trip or put it down on a house.

To be honest I didn’t know there was a prize, I kinda just wanted my story heard:

So I was always going to be a tattoo artist. I tried real hard and I got to start when I was 18.  I found out that I had epilepsy that gave me seizures and couple years later I end up being in a coma for a couple months.

I woke up with a very different kind of walk and talk. I really forgot how to tattoo, it was really hard for me. Then from there I started to read and learn how to build myself back up mentally, physically, and re-learn how to talk. Just to get better at tattooing back in my groove during those times.  I felt like I lost a lot of us, a lot of myself.  It was really hard, I mean I can go more in detail…

I just wanted to tell my story, there’s more stuff that happened before but that’s kind of the gist of it, I guess. Thank you.
