Re: “Margo Venomous, tattoo artist

Margo is an artist and kills more than just slinging the ink. I'm very pleased to wear her work.

Re: “Margo Venomous, tattoo artist

Margo is probably one of the most talented artists I have EVER had the pleasure of knowing. She covered up a very large portion of my back with the most beautifully colored butterfly. This was a cover up of a cover up.... what can I say, I made multiple mistakes in my 20's. My butterfly stretches from shoulder to shoulder and halfway down my back. I am currently learning how to make the wings fly... ;) But seriously there was a lot of chair time but Margo is so easy to connect with that the time just flies. She's creative, funny, and quite intelligent. She did a whole "farm scene" sleeve on my hubby that started with the most badass rooster and ended up with skelecorn (my own word) eating crow and all sorts of things going on that goes way outside of the box for a typical creative person. So as for my opinion, confining this personality to a graphic design studio would be an injustice to the community. Because the reality is EVERYONE or most everyone gets a tattoo. It's an intense experience for anyone and you'll remember that event for the rest of your life. I can assure you Margo is the real deal... no regrets!

Re: “Margo Venomous, tattoo artist

"People go into graphic design to create beautiful things for people, and they wind up alphabetizing a family reunion shirt for 10 hours a day. It sucks every bit of your artistic soul."
Those of you who have a dream to create don't let her words get you down. This may be her experience. It sure wasn't mine and it doesn't have to be yours. You can have a soul filling career in graphic design and draw every day.

After over 30 years of graphic creation, I love every day and i would not take back a minute.

Will they wash my walls?

Yes, companies and caring workers like Dana, and he is a professional, who provide these kind of services are indispensable and invisible until we need them.

Jeebus! You people really need to learn how the world turns.

Jennifer: though you're new and don't know much at this point, you're doing valuable work (mucho re useful than the experts here), keep it up.

Yes, crony capitalism is alive and well in SC, but I give her a pass because she went to Clemson and I find her pleasing to the eye.

Re: “Keeping businesses happy so they stay in Charleston County

And the self congratulatory phrase "young professional" is wearing thin. Just when is the cut-off for young? 40? And when does a job rate "profession" status - is it the suit? If a plumber makes more than a MBA, is he/she a professional?

Touche'. But have you ever written anything productive or even positive? Your most recent 10 posts are sarcastic, sassy, and holier than thou. Has anyone in this world ever done or said anything that meets your approval?

Or are you just a sassy guy? Is that it? You're a sassy guy?

Re: “Keeping businesses happy so they stay in Charleston County

2 months, 18 months. Who's counting?

(running on 4 years, up in here, almost 2650 posts - almost 2 per day! wow, I must have had NOTHING BETTER TO DO (well, largely, I didn't, but that's another story))

Tax incentives aren't exactly illegal, but they are often misunderstood - and almost always "secretive". Remember that there were members of the SC legislature saying they weren't sure of all of what Boeing was given to come here in 2009? That was a pretty extreme package of incentives (and was repeated earlier this year, as well).

There are different forms of incentives and some might be good and some might be bad, but it's hard for us mere mortals to know. Ms. Brown probably isn't in danger of losing her job because she only mentioned what most of us already know - that governments hand big business incentive deals and that's just the way it is.

You know, 'cause they're "secret" and all that. Because that's how businesses and governments operate in a "democracy" (or, if you insist, a "republic").

Re: “Keeping businesses happy so they stay in Charleston County

Geezus, what is this? The "smart asses who are perfect at their incredibly important and legitimate jobs and think they sound really smart by criticizing other people" bitch and moan comments section?

The girl said she's new to the job so she's in the learning phases...learning what Charleston has to offer, learning about industry, learning about tax incentives. It comes down to whether you want your city to have an office that makes these types of efforts or not. I see value in their efforts, it's clear you do not.

And I think your tax incentive conspiracy theories are a waste of time.

BTW, what type of person makes 713 comments to the Charleston City Paper in two months anyway? Sounds like somebody either unemployed or with a truly illegitimate job that makes it possible to sit at your computer, criticizing others all day.

And, now that she has exposed her boss for using our tax money for secret incentives; so much for her job.
