Juan Puente:
“He used to come in and get tattoo'd at Fat George's, one of the 1st shops I worked at. He credits me for teaching him a little of the stuff in the beginning, which was very rare back then. You would give no trade secrets away. When he finally got an interview, he quoted me in a magazine. He said I told him: ‘Don't ever tell anybody that I taught you how to tattoo until you get really good.’ He was the best man at my wedding. Juan's always been that guy to take down a name with the number. I always write down the number and forget to write the fucking name.”
