'When I was in kindergarden I was a pretty good kid. There were a couple bad kids in my class and I made a concious decision to join them as soon as the first grade started. I would, from that point on, be a bad kid. I only lasted in schools till grade 8 and I was into bad shit, punkrock, stealing, skateboarding, graffiti, drugs and rockaberry coolers. I sold drugs on and off from this point on cause I was bad, then I was hooked on booze and drugs cause I'm bad and now i tattoo cause it's a bad ass thing to do and you can swear.' Jamer, a tattoo artist in Victoria, BC on why he started tattooing.
