Got to hang out with these lovely ladies.
We all have our daily routines and morning rituals, as for me, it consists of waking up, brewing a fresh pot of coffee and watching the morning news with the wifey. In specific, we’ve religiously watched the Channel 3 news and our favorite news anchor has always been Jessica Moore.
So last week when I got an email from someone named Jessica Moore, I was taken back, and thought this customer may have shared the same name. Needless to say, it turns out that the email request was for a tattoo from Emmy Award winning news anchor Jessica Moore from Channel 3 – I was blown away.
Like any job, you’ve got your good days and bad days, and that day was definitely a memorable one for the history books. I’ll be honest, in years past, I’ve been approached by a bunch of celebrities to do tattoos and it’s never impressed me or got me star struck one bit.
I one time had a big time rapper come in with his loose change mentality and kindly refused to work with him, and just recently I had one homie come through talking about his hits, his fame, and of course in the end he started bargaining me down to scratcher rates so I had to kindly reject his offer.
But truth be told, when Jessica Moore came in to get a matching tattoo with her sister I was honored, humbled and downright nervous. I was nervous to a point where I was left without words.
It was a pleasure to be able to tattoo Jessica and her sister and I’m so thankful that they chose me to do their tattoos. Again, it’s one of those moments in time that marks a special occasion, and it’s great to be able to say that I met – and tattooed – my favorite news anchor now turned friend.
