I came back here to this beautiful city, this special place of roads and trees and people and sky, to interview a group of tattooers here. We’ve got two guys from Santiago Chile. One dude from Paraguay and four guys from Buenos Aires.
I love this city. There’s something special about it. The South American mindset is just plain different. It’s a little slower, a little more tranquil and … maybe connected? I’m not quite sure what it is.
The women are stunning, the people friendly, there’s a lot of dog shit on the street, although not as much human shit as San Francisco has on it’s streets.
The food is incredible. Empenadas, the pizza is generally outstanding, and the carne (the meat) – Fuck off! The coffee is good, the wine is good. I may want to grow old in this city. It doesn’t get much better.
The interview is tonight. I’m honored to interview such a great group of guys and get a little insight into what makes it a different experience down here below the equator.
