It has just come to my attention from a client, that they were going to get work done by me at a Guest spot, last April, but luckily had to cancel, i say luckily because….i was never doing that guest spot, or know the people who owned the studio.
Now a few years ago, i did often have people contacting me about work done by my "apprentice", these people never were my apprentices, just piercers/"modifiers" using my name. I also had people using my work to advertise themselves, but in these days of internet, it seemed that this sort of thing had stopped, but evidently "cons" still exist.
SO if i am ever doing a guest spot, then i will also advertise this on my personal page, and shop page, we will always advertise it. If i don't , i am not doing it
