IT'S JUST THE FACT THATIT LOOKS SO FLORIDA-ESQUE.

DUDE, VEGASPLUS TRAMP STAMP?

IT'S GOTTA BEA RIDICULOUS STORY.

I GOTTA SEEWHAT'S UP WITH THIS.

- LISTEN, I GOT A SON,

AND I JUST DON'T WANT HIMTO BE EMBARRASSED

OF HIS FATHER ANYMORE.- HOW OLD'S YOUR KID?

- SIX WEEKS, BUT, UH...- REALLY?

- PRETTY SOON ONE DAY,HE'S GONNA WAKE UP AND BE LIKE,

"DADDY, WHAT IS THATON YOUR BACK?"

AND I DON'T WANT THAT DAYTO COME.

MY SON, YOU KNOW,IS GONNA BE GOING TO SCHOOL

IN ABOUT FOUR YEARS, AND I DON'TWANT HIM TO GET BEAT UP.

YOU KNOW, "WHY DOES YOUR DADHAVE A TATTOO THAT'S FOR GIRLS?"

YOU KNOW, I WANT MY SONTO HAVE THE COOLEST,

MOST RAD, BADASS DADPOSSIBLE,

WHICH IS SOME DARK, MEAN STUFFON MY LOWER BACK

THAT'LL SCARE AWAYALL THE LITTLE BULLIES.

- WHAT WERE YOU THINKINGOF COVERING IT WITH?

- GO COMPLETE POLAR OPPOSITE.

I'M TALKING DARK,MAYBE HALLOWEEN-ESQUE, BECAUSE--

- COOL.THE PROBLEM WITH JOHNNY'S TATTOO

IS NOT ONLYIS IT BRAND-NEW,

IT'S A QUALITY TATTOO,

AND QUALITY TATTOOSARE HARDER TO COVER UP

THAN SOMETHINGTHAT WAS DONE BADLY.

IT'S GOT CLEAN LINE WORK TO IT,HEAVY COLOR,

WHICH MAKES ITEXTREMELY HARD.

SO I GOT A SERIOUS CHALLENGEAHEAD OF ME.

IT'S A PRETTY WILD TATTOOHE'S GOT.

UH--[whistles]

I'M GONNA USE SOME OF HIS TRIBALAS A FENCE IN THE BACKGROUND,

AND I'M JUST GONNA PUTVERTICAL LINES THROUGH IT

TO LOOK LIKE IT'S A FENCE.

AND I'M GONNA USETHE GREEN OF HIS TRIBAL

AS THE GREEN OF THE MOONIN THE BACKGROUND,

AND JUST CAMOUFLAGETHE WHOLE THING.

[bells chiming]

- HELLO?- HI, SWEETHEART.

TODAY, I HAVE A CLIENTCOMING IN NAMED MICHAEL,

AND HE TOLD ME THAT HE NEEDSA TATTOO COVERED UP

THAT HE GOTFROM A ROCK STAR.

- I'M READY TO GETTHIS TATTOO COVERED UP,

BECAUSE IT SUCKS.

AND I WOULD LIKE TO BE ABLETO TAKE MY SHIRT OFF,

EVEN JUST TO GO SWIMMINGOR ANYTHING,

WHERE THERE'S GIRLSAND OTHER PEOPLE

AND NOT BE ASHAMEDOR EMBARRASSED.

- WHAT EXACTLYDID YOU HAVE IN MIND?

- SOMETHING TRADITIONAL,LIKE SAILOR JERRY STYLE.

I COVER A LOT OF BAD TRIBALS,

BUT THIS IS THE FIRST ONE

THAT'S BEEN DONEBY A FAMOUS ROCK STAR.

I GOTTA FIND OUTWHO'S RESPONSIBLE

FOR THIS PIECE OF GARBAGE,BECAUSE IT IS BAD.

JUST THE FACT THAT IT'S A TRIBALIS BAD ENOUGH, YOU KNOW?

I'D HAVE TO SAY THAT'STHE WORST PART ABOUT IT.

BLASTING A BAD TRIBAL OUT

WITH COLOR IS USUALLYYOUR BEST BET TO COVER IT UP.

SINCE THAT'S NOT AN OPTION,I'M GONNA TRY

TO COVER THAT BAD TRIBAL INTHE SHADOW OF THE SHIP'S SAILS.

BASICALLY, I'M GOINGTO SHADE THE HELL OUT OF THIS

AND HOPE FOR THE BEST.

IT'S KIND OF GOTA LOT GOING ON.

I THOUGHT THAT MY TATTOOWAS GONNA HELP ME

PORTRAY, LIKE,A HARDER IMAGE.

YOU KNOW, I JUST WANTED PEOPLEJUST TO LOOK AT ME

AND NOT WANTTO MESS WITH ME.

BUT, IT WAS THE BIGGEST MISTAKEOF MY LIFE.

- LET ME SEE--RELAX YOUR ARM,LET ME SEE HOW FAR UP THAT GOES.

OH, SO IT GOES ALL--OH, SNAP!

- SO...PEOPLE JUDGE ME

AT MY DAUGHTER'S SCHOOL.I MEAN, EVEN AT CHURCH,

THINKING I'M JUST SOME, LIKE,YOU KNOW, HORRIBLE PERSON.

BUT, IT'S HURTFUL.

I'M PRETTY SPIRITUAL.

I WAS THINKING, MAYBE SOMETHINGTO DO WITH THE BIBLE.

- SOME SCRIPTURES...- SOME HEAVENLY--

- HEAVENLY SCENES.

- MAYBE SOME ANGELS.I DON'T KNOW.

- SONIA'S TATTOO,IT'S A HOMIE TATTOO.

THE WAY IT'S SHADED,

I'LL BE RIGHT BACK.- COOL.

- SONIA LOOKS HARD,YOU KNOW?

SO I WANT TO GIVE HERA SOFT TATTOO.

YOU KNOW, TAKE THAT LEVELOF HARDNESS

AWAY FROM HER A LITTLE BIT.

RIGHT NOW, I'M JUST TRYINGTO COME UP WITH,

LIKE, A CONCEPT SKETCH.

I'M GONNA DO,LIKE, A PORTRAIT.

SONIA HAS A BIG STARDEAD CENTER IN THE ARM.

AND I'M GOING TO COVER IT UPBY PUTTING

THE ANGEL RIGHT OVER THE CENTER.

I'M ALSO GONNA ALIGN THE ROBESO THAT IT DRAPES RIGHT OVER IT.

LOOK AT THIS.SO PERFECT.

- ALL RIGHT, KID.I CAME UP WITH SOMETHING

BEAUTIFUL FOR YOU, BRO.- SWEET.

BRAND NEW TATTOO THAT YOU GOT.- THAT IS EXACTLY

WHAT I WANT, DUDE.- AWESOME, KID.

- LOOKING AT THE DRAWINGFOR THE FIRST TIME,

I'M EXCITED, BUT I'M STILLA LITTLE BIT WORRIED.

IS--IS HOW IS THIS GONNACOMPLETELY COVER

THIS GIGANTIC, COLORFUL TATTOOTHAT I HAVE.

- SO, WHY DON'T YOUEXPLAIN TO ME

HOW YOU GOT THIS TATTOOIN THE FIRST PLACE?

- I'M LIVING PROOFTHAT WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS

DOESN'T ALWAYSSTAY IN VEGAS.

BUT I BLACKEDEVERYTHING ELSE OUT.

- ALL THE HOT CHICKS,ALL THE LIQUOR.

"I CAN'T HAVE A DRINKWITH YOU."
