My tattoo pact with Johnny Depp, Iggy Pop and Jim Jarmusch

I first met Johnny Depp in 1984. For decades I had been living in Brazil, where I had begun tattooing, and I had decided to move to Los Angeles. I knew a bunch of crazy musicians in a band called the Rock City Angels, who were all living in this historic building in Hollywood called the Fontenoy, and I started hanging out with those guys.
