Julia and I just returned from a nice little Halloween getaway in Austin Texas; while we were there we decided to commemorate our vacation/anniversary/favorite holiday with a little souvenir tattoo from Affinity’s Nic Lynds. We had talked with the shop’s owner (and old friend of mine) Ryan about the design, casually, and were surprised to find that Nic had already drawn it up for us by the time we got in. We had a great time with him and the Affinity crew; getting tattooed, bullshitting and ball breaking and telling stories late into what turned out to be a killer rainstorm that ended in flooding throughout the city.
There are a lot of really amazing tattooers in Austin; we were bummed to not have visited more shops while we were in town, but I guess that gives us a great excuse to visit again. Regardless, Nic turned out to be the perfect guy for the job and we were glad to have gotten the opportunity to get a last minute tattoo from a genuine gent.
