If you examine his work, Brandon makes each tattoo a work of art. The flesh literally becomes a canvas. I respect tattoo artists for committing to work that is so obviously permanent. It's at once scary (how apprenticeships work for tattoo artists is beyond me), but I would imagine that buy building such an extensive portfolio, you creat an incredible testament to your skill. Your work is literally part of someone forever.
Ok, so I might not want to have the straightjacket man tattooed on my back for the rest of my life. But at least it looks really, really good.
