I'm gonna be honest, at the time when Miya told me we were interviewing Red, who owned West End and it being a shop he got from Julia and Foot who you will learn more about, I thought he was gonna be old. Not old like 40 so to speak, old like 60 and smaller. I really don't know why. As you can see Red does not look anywhere near 60 or really even 40 and could easily be cast as Extra #2 in that scene where Deebo knocked out...Red (see what I did there)
Red was one of my favorite interviews, I think it's because we share a similar dry, snarky humor and way of telling stories, but also there was so much information to gain about tattooing and the history. If you're in Atlanta, I would recommend you visit his current shop, Tri-Cities Tattoo and figure out some shit to talk to him about, he's into all types of art and he doesn't mind talking about it as long as you don't say no dumb shit.
