No, you have to be 15, and be in the right place to get a tattoo, or at the right time to get a tattoo.”
And the right place to get a tattoo?
“The right people,” he says, pointing a finger with a smile. “Because I know what happens to people in here, man: People get tattoos. I know what happens to people with tattoos.”
“You’ve got to be at the right people, dude,” he says. “The tattoo community is great. I’m in the tattoo community. I’ve got tattoos. I got a lot of tattoos.”
If he didn’t get his tattoos, he would have got them as a kid. But because he wanted them, he got them.
But there was a time on Earth when people got tattoos.
“If you look at when my mom got those tattoos, they were young, about 12 or 13, 13 years old,” says Hines. “A couple of guys from the neighborhood, a bunch of friends of my mom, got a tattoo, and they made sure I didn’t. They hung me up around my neck, in the little spot where it was kind of a high line. So they told me I didn’t have to.”
But there were a lot more people getting tattoos while Hines was growing up in his home neighborhood of North Philadelphia. That’s because in 1974, a city ordinance came into effect that meant tattooing in the city was illegal. So, Hines and his friends had to take their friends, whom they’d grown up with, and go into a clinic, go in jail, and then get their tatted-on bodies treated at a different clinic until the rules changed.
“The tattoo people were the first ones to start showing up, and they were the last people to be denied,” he says. “And all of a sudden, it was a whole new era in Philadelphia, because people were free to get tattoos without going through some kind of hell to get it done.”
“I still got my mom’s Tattoos. I still get my mom’s Tattoos,” he adds, as if it was an answer to a question a year ago. “We’ll call you tomorrow. ‘Oh yeah, she got a tattoo. It’s my mom,'” he says, and he laughs.
Now, he and his friends can go to any number of tattoo shops – from the tattoo parlor in his childhood neighborhood to
