CHS Ink | Eric’s hands

Name: Eric Eye
Location: Dark Age Tattoo
Artist: “A very good friend did both at different times. I put them on my hands so that they’re always staring at me and sort of keeping me in line. The right hand keeps me striving to be better and the left hand keeps me staying in the moment. Some tattoos I get just for style or because they’re cool. Also, my name’s Eric Eye.”

Seth and Danielle were part of Saturday’s scene.
