“An intoxicating and addictive mixture of tattoo parlor scents: the rubbing alcohol that sterilizes the needle, the cigarette resting on the tattoo bartists lip, the ink moving rapidly from the needle into skin, the droplets of blood seeping out, the whisky on the counter, the leather jacket hanging on the back of the chair... and endless mélange of edgy aromas that come together with each visit and subsequent climax.” — Emilie Coppermann
