    The crappy one I found spoke decent English... But the shop reeked of weed. This other one I found I didn't have time to check for language proficiency... But the portfolio was pretty damn good. However I'd be worried that I'd end up with the crappy artist. I am, after all, an American who doesn't speak a whole lot of Italian.

    I'm here for another 3.5 months. Plenty of time to decide. And it's too damn cold to swim now anyways! Plus Rome doesn't really have anything besides the Tiber, which is gross.

    I had to laugh because I went down to breakfast in my PJ shorts and everyone was like "whoa, you have tattoos???" totally surprised.

    Yeah the italians aren't as up to date with mods like we are. When I went to visit my family they all were amazed by my labret and ears, they thought it was mental.

    Oh really? I thought tattoos wouldn't be a big deal to americans? They certainly aren't here but then I live in a sailor town and everyone has tattoos ^^

    Italians (or where I am from) have only just got over the fact you can have your navel pierced. My mum was a bit of spectacle when we went to the beach and hers was on show.
