HAVE TO START THINKINGFIVE STEPS AHEAD OF JOSH.

THERE'S A PLAN ALWAYS.

- EVERY CELTIC DESIGN

IS GONNA BEA LOT OF INTENSE LINE WORK.

- LET'S DO IT.COME ON THIS WAY.

- THERE'S SO MANYINTERSECTIONS.

THAT NEEDLEHAS TO GO IN AND OUT

SO THAT YOUR LINESBUTT UP PERFECTLY.

EVEN THE MOST EXPERIENCED ARTISTIS GONNA FEEL THE PRESSURE.

- THE RIBS, THOUGH, HUH?

A LOT OF LINE WORK SUCKS,'CAUSE THAT'S THE SPOT

WHERE YOU SOMETIMES GO,"OOH, OOH, AHH, OH!"

DID YOU HAVEANY OTHER BACKUP PLANS

OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT,JUST OUT OF CURIOSITY?

- I COULD DO, LIKE,MAYBE MY LEFT ARM.

- THAT WOULD REALLYMAKE MY LIFE A LOT EASIER.

JUST MAKE IT EASIER ON ME,PLEASE.

IF YOU DON'T MIND.- YEAH, I MEAN,

WE COULD DO MY OTHER ARM, THEN.- YEAH.

I WOULD LOVE TO, I MEAN,IF YOU COULD HELP ME OUT.

- YEAH.- I COULD REALLY USE THE HELP.

YOU KNOW,I'D APPRECIATE IT.

- SO I THINK I WANT SOMETHINGA LITTLE BIT MORE INTRICATE.

- ALL RIGHT.- OKAY.

- DO YOU LIKE THIS?

- THE LINESARE TOO FAR APART FOR ME.

- OKAY.LET'S SEE.

CRAIG WAS TRYING TO GIVE MEA CHALLENGE ON THIS ONE,

BUT I'M SO GOODAT DEALING WITH PEOPLE,

IT'S GONNA BITE HIMIN THE ASS.

RIGHT NOW, I'M JUST KIND OF,LIKE, GOING, "OKAY,

HERE'S WHAT SHE LIKES,HERE'S WHAT SHE DOESN'T LIKE,"

SO I CAN MAKE SURE I DESIGNSOMETHING YOU'RE GONNA LOVE.

- IT'S A CELTIC KNOT CROSS,RIGHT?

- RIGHT, I ALSO NEEDTHE NUMBER 13 AND 13 TO--

- YEAH, LET ME THINKABOUT THAT ONE FOR A SECOND.

- MY CANVAS WANTS A LOTOF REALLY SPECIFIC STUFF.

HE WANTS 13s IN THE CROSS,WHICH I AM WORRIED ABOUT

BECAUSE IT'S GONNA MESS WITHTHE INTEGRITY OF THE KNOT WORK.

- IT'S JUST I REALLYNEED THAT INCORPORATED,

BECAUSE THIS IS ACTUALLYA TATTOO

THAT IS KIND OF LIKEA TRIBUTE TO MY BROTHER.
