EPISODE SEVEN: SNAKE TATTOO FACE

The Ghost Mustang rolled up to the curb in front of the P&H Cafe.  We climbed out.  There were some bearded guys in hoodies smoking in front of the bar.  The only guy not wearing a hoodie was bald, and his entire face and scalp were tattooed with coiling black snakes.

CruisingSomebody introduced him to us as one of the bar’s owners.  He was a nice guy, and his shift had just ended.  He shook our hands and then went home to rest.

As soon as he was out of earshot, a bearded hoodie dude said: “You don’t just end up with snakes tattooed across your face.  Things happen to you in your life that make you want to do that.”

Another added: “He can talk the talk and walk the walk.”
