lmao, if I was a tattoo artist, I'd totally hire you FOR that reason, because I don't actually like the idea of desk work XD... but that's not what you asked. I just wanted to say that. If I ever become one, I'll let you know though :D... but, I'd say, just keep trying to find a place that will take you. Maybe a place... More
