Man at the bus stop – Backstory

Advertisements

Name: Jim Hennings, 63 years of age.

Jim got an Arts degree from the University of Toronto in 1953. He was a well-known artist when he first started out and designed the covers of children story books with his best friend and lover, who was the novelist. After 30 years, his friend passed away and he could no longer design book covers for her. He fell into a dark place and ever since, he has been trying to pursue his arts career again. He decided to start his own tattoo company from his living room, Hennings Ink, inspired by a rose tattoo that his deceased friend had. He learned everything about tattooing from YouTube, and earns a menial living off of his business. He can’t afford to pay for online advertisements, so he hands out business cards at bus stations around Toronto, where he met Jenny.
