After Paradise Tattoo Gathering, it was clear that this show needed to gather the apprenticeship journey's of both "Nicoles" that Rico and I got to stay with at Jiminy Peak, MA.
This week, we hear from Nicole DeRoy of Acme Ink Tattoo, in RI. She's had a very fettered start as her apprenticeship started in 2020. Beyond Covid, Nicole found many hurdles in her learning journey that we break down in this first part.
Listen in and hear another wild 2020, origin story; It certainly required stamina and grace.
Thank you Nicole! We know that you're on your way lady. ;)

X : TheApprenticeshipDiaries~We were suspended from Twitter but now that it's "X" we decided to delete the past and move forward; Trusting that the information is out about what happened (so the story stays straight). Let it be known that this wasn't a confession of guilt; Rather a movement made where none was happening. Twitter was a past life... We move forward on X.
