    My wife and I own a shop in our city.

    Tattoos are very common in our city. I've owned the shop for 7 years. Other shops have tried to start up, but they closed because mine got the best business. I love my job. I've never worked a day in my life !

    I have always been mesmerized by tattoos. They are a form of art that even if they don't have a back story behind it it's still beautiful.
