Yea, if you are into similar "subcultural" stuff, I guess the degrees of seperation amongst your different circle of friends diminishes. I still meet people for the first time who have known other aquantances of mine for years. Kind of like this I guess.
When is your friend's Tattoo convention? Me and my son are heading up to the Sequoias July 9th thru about the 15th. I was already thinking of Making a detour on the way up or back. Would be a good excuse to say hi to Johnny. You said you are on FB, does the convention have a event thingy there? I think I'm a "fan" of the shop, so maybe I'll find it there.
Wow, small world indeed. Haven't seen Johnny in a long time. We decided to cut through Merced at the last moment on a trip up 49 and it was Easter sunday so we gave Johnny no notice and the shop wasn't open, maybe next time. So did you know John from your time in the cerritos/aresia area? That was his neck of the woods growing up. Look forward to seeing your completed work by Johnny, Will look for the pics then.
Ah yes, I know those areas well.
I'm here by way of Santa Cruz, Oakland and most of East Bay,
Orange County, SF, and parts of LA,
Sacramento -Southside&Downtown (Never really dug living in that Cowtown)
But Now I live in The Crown, The Southern tip of PB.
