Mister April

What do you do for a living?
I am a manager at Big Whiskey’s in Ozark.

Where are you from?
I was born in Las Cruces, New Mexico, which is what most of my sleeve has to do with. But, I have lived in the Springfield area for most of my life.

What is your most painful tattoo?
The inside of my wrist was by far the most painful tattoo I have had so far.

What is your favorite tattoo?
Each time I get a new tattoo it becomes my favorite. But I would say that the mountains on my forearm are my favorite.

What are some of your hobbies?
In the little time I have outside of working, I enjoy bowling and going to Cardinals’ baseball and Cowboys’ football games with friends and family. Of course, nothing beats a sunny day with the top and doors off of my Jeep.

Why do you love being tattooed?
I love having the things that remind me of who I am and where I came from made permanent on my skin. I like seeing how the different ideas that I have blend together. It will always be a work in progress.

How many tattoos do you have?
I currently have nine and am scheduling my next appointment.

What is your favorite thing about Ink Ink?
My favorite thing about Ink Ink is the people I have met and friendships I have made…not only the staff, but the “frequent fliers” as well. I’m always happy when I refer someone to Ink Ink and they have a great experience as well.
