We’ve seen the artists on Black Ink Crew create some interesting designs (on even more interesting body parts), all based on the specific requests of their clients. While he’s happy to serve, O’S**t is an artist who prefers to create designs that have a story behind them, rather than something that will ultimately get covered up. “If you wanted something that’s going to be really meaningful, it makes me want to do it more because I know it’s going to be something that’s going to be imprinted for the rest of your life,” he explains. Even more than the prospect of a big tip?
To learn more about O’S**t’s tattoo style, his philosophy on when it’s acceptable to “tap out,” and the jungle and forest animals he loves best, watch the video above.
Black Ink Crew returns on Monday, September 23 at 9:30 ET/PT.
