- TATTOOERS NEED FLEXIBILITY

BECAUSE NOT EVERY PERSON'STHE SAME,

NOT EVERY DESIGNIS THE SAME,

AND NOT EVERY SKIN TYPEIS THE SAME.

- YOU'VE LIVEDAND WORKED CLOSELY TOGETHER

FOR THE LAST SEVERAL WEEKS,AND NO DOUBT,

YOU'VE FORMED BONDSAND BUTTED HEADS.

TODAY YOU WILL HAVETO PUT ALL THAT ASIDE,

BECAUSE TWO ARTISTS MUST CREATEA COLLABORATION TATTOO

ON ONE CANVASAS A TEAM.

- EVERY TIME I WORK ALONE,I DO WELL,

AND EVERY TIME I WORK IN TEAMS,I GET SCREWED.

- YOU AND YOUR TEAMMATEMUST TAG TEAM.

ONLY ONE OF YOU CAN TATTOOAT A TIME.

- [bleep].

- AND YOU MUST SWITCH ARTISTSEVERY HOUR.

- THIS IS JUST GONNABE VERY HARD.

RIGHT WHEN YOU GETINTO YOUR GROOVE,

YOU'RE THEN HAVING TO SWITCHFOR SOMEBODY ELSE.

- THIS IS A COMPLETE NIGHTMARE.

- YOUR CANVASES ARECOMPLETELY OPEN,

SO THE STYLE AND SUBJECTARE COMPLETELY UP

TO YOU AND YOUR TEAMMATE.

- THAT'S COOL.

- YOU'LL NEED FLEXIBILITYTO CREATE A PERFECT, SEAMLESS,

COHESIVE TATTOO THAT LOOKS

LIKE ONE ARTIST DESIGNEDAND TATTOOED IT.

- [bleep].

- THERE'S A LOT OF ROOMFOR ERROR IN THIS.

TWO DIFFERENT STYLESOF TATTOOING TOGETHER

COULD BE A DISASTER.

- THERE IS ONE LAST THINGTHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW.

YOU WILL BE JUDGED AS A TEAM.

- OH, [bleep].
