Dorian Gallagher is a dick and much to his displeasure I’m sure, I’m a bitch. He follows me back to my room. “Dorian go ahead and take your shirt off and get comfortable. I’ll be back in just a moment.”

I walk from the room and head down the hall. “Al, you bastard you took my last gloves and didn’t refill them.”

“Get over it. You comin’ out tonight?” Al asks with a laugh.

“Don’t know depends on how long this session runs. I call and let you know.” I grab my gloves then turn back to my room.

“Sounds good. See you later.”

“Bye.” I say right before I walk back into the room. Dorian is already seated and waiting. His virgin back is calling to me. “Sorry about that. I like to listen to music while I work is that cool with you?”

“It’s fine by me.”


I turn the radio on and its set to a classic rock station. Then I go about getting gloves on. I run a hand over his back and thanking Christ I don’t have shave him. Then I spray him down, so I can transfer the drawing from the paper to the skin.

“Charlie baby. We’re leaving and locking up behind us.” Pop says from the door.

“Sure, thing Pop. Oh, there should be a guy in the waiting room he’s with this one. So, he’s fine.”

Pop nods his head. “Be careful heading home or are you going out with Al tonight?”

“I’m always careful and not sure depends on how this goes.”

Pop chuckles. “Later Charlie.”

“Bye Pop.” I shake my head “Again sorry about that.”

“No problem at all. So, this is a family run place.”

“Yep. Pop walks around looking pretty. Momma handles the paperwork. My brother handles piercings and I’ve got this.”

“Seems like a tight gig.”

“It pays the bills and I didn’t have to wait for years to get my own chair.”

“How long have you been doing this?” Dorian asks.

I remove the paper from him skin. “Started right out of high school. I got an art degree, but I was already tatting people including myself by the time I was eighteen.”

“Well from what I’ve seen you’re very good at it.”

Okay maybe not so much of a dick. “Thank you. I want to get the outlining done today. I can try for more but don’t want it to be too much for you.”

“That’s fine but we can set up for, tomorrow right?”

“Yes of course.”
