Bang%20Head A little anecdote about an incident at the shop a few nights ago, enjoy!
Me: Hey guys, how can I help you?
Dumb Cunt: I have this tattoo (shows me crayola crack tattoo) and I wanna get it redone, it just needs color.
M: It looks like it needs more, umm, I don't do reworks sweetie, I can however offer to show you to another artist who will or show you a possible cover up.
DC: Oh I don't want it covered up, could you just recolor it?
M: No, I don't do reworks for two reasons, 1. It's an artist quirk of mine, if someone else reworked my tattoo without my consent, I'd be upset, and (after she said she got it out of her ex's house which is who did it, I explained that...) 2. Someone else's fuck up is not my responsibility.
DC: You can't just recolor it, it's a simple design?
M: No, I'm sorry, I can help you with finding an artist who will though.
DC: No, I wanna get it done tonight, and now.
M: I'm sorry I can't help you at this point.
DC: Whatever, we had money you just lost out on it.
It's just time, you know they'll make more of it.

Nah, but it helps enduring to be unhappy...

I've seen annoying customers like this in shops as well. I think you handled it well though. You were straight up with her and basically told her that some tattoos are just so far gone that any attempt to "fix" them short of a cover-up just won't work. You even offered to find her an artist that would work on it. Good call from a business standpoint as well. If I was a tattoo artist I'd want to make sure that all the work that came out of my shop was done to the best of my ability. You wouldn't want to compromise your reputation by letting someone walk out of there with a crappy tattoo and telling their friends that they went to you (even if you didn't start it and were just fixing it up).

Good for you! It's your business, why the fuck shouldn't you be picky!
Damn... if I owned my own piercing studio, I'd be picky about my customers to a certain extent.
Ie- "Hi... I want there pierced... +points+"....

All I have to say my man is that it can't be any worse than where we just came from. haha, at least this was an isolated incident rather than an entire town of idiots.

I have only asked one artist to fix my work and that is because when I went back to the guy who originally did it he f***ed it up again. So now all my work is done by someone I trust.

Life is such a ride! WHEEEEEEEEEEEE!
