Greg Rodriguez, owner of Victory Ink Tattoo. Jefferson Blvd., West Sacramento.
We opened in 2011. We were the first tattoo shop in West Sacramento. Most of our clients are loyal but 50-60% of our income is from walk-in traffic. I've been taking money out of my savings account to pay my rent because everything got to get paid. If you don't pay it now, you will have to pay for it in the end. I would like to open. I don’t want to keep hiding behind the shadows and not trying to live because we're all trying to survive. We don't work, we don't survive. Our main income is people, that's how we make our living.
