One of my personal joys of this podcast is to reconnect with old friends and learn more about what they went through in their craft as well as their life.
I first met Boots Brandon Pajaganas years ago. He used to invite our band, Rescue a Hero, to play music for skate events. Back in the day, I remember talking to Boots about his experience skating around Cebu. It's been a while since I last saw Boots, but I was updated on his goingons through Facebook and Instagram.
In the past four years, Boots made a name for himself as a tattoo artist. I remember seeing posts of him winning tattoo competitions, getting tons of clients, and finally tattooing celebrities like Angelica Panganiban and Kitchie Nadal.
He was a no brainer for the podcast. Here was another creative doing well in a creative industry. Little did I know, Boots has a really good story to tell. He is an example of what I'm hoping to see more in Cebu. Before he became a well known tattoo artist, he started with very little. At some point, he even got a short job conducting a jeepney just to make ends meet. This is a real story of starting from the bottom to fulfilling a dream.
In this episode, we talked about his journey of becoming a tattoo artist, the challenges and tribulations he experienced that changed his world view, the blessings he has received that were uncovered through those challenges, and the importance of giving back to the community.
Enjoy this episode!
