Leathers has done so many tattoos in the last year that he’s lost track of the number. But while he is now paid for each one he does, he says he will always consider himself Zulueta’s apprentice.
“The whole way this thing came together was real fortunate,” he says. “And I plan on staying here with Leo for a long time.”

I just want to thank Leo, Jared and Diane for the terrific tattoos. My husband and I were the ones that had the kanji "soulmate" tattoos. He actually told me today while still over seas that he looks at that tattoo everyday and it makes him feel better. Its amazing how personal one tattoo can be and how more connected it can make two people feel when they are miles away from each other. Thank you again for your awesome talent. H Moore
