It’s a huge coinsidance that we are posting our today’s guest’s answers, when his tattoo and art place called The White Lotus Tattoo & Art Gallery was opened EXACTLY 10 years ago! 😀
As you know we ask our “5 questions to:..” to RC maniacs from around the world for two years now. We ask all kinds of people – from ones that don’t have any RC social media profiles, to most popular figures in RC community. Some of them we know in person, with some we talk a lot online, with others we first contact when we ask, if they’d like to be part of this series, because we admire their work. In each and every case they are people, that somehow influenced us or we simply think it’d be pretty cool to drive or talk about RC with. It was not different this time.
Our today’s guest is someone, that’s hard to forget. And we don’t mean by that, that he is tall, has great tattoos, long beard and pretty much looks badass. Nah. I think it’s more about his charisma – did you see Pit Bull Tires’ video about Rock Beast XL (CLICK)? Or saw pictures and read their descriptions from his recent trip to Asia? Or with his Daughter (Baby Bear)? Or spiders (not a fan myself, but I admire his passion and must say – seeing those 8-leg creatures pretty often on Fb recently, makes me just a tiny bit less affraid of them. Just a bit.)?
He is most definitely one of the people, that are on top of our list “RC maniacs from very far away that we’d like to drive with” (just kidding – we don’t have a list like that – but you get the idea 😉 ). Other than driving together, it’d be a dream-come-true to get a tattoo from him. Ladies and gents – with a great pleasure we present to you answers to our “5 questions to:..” from mr Desmond Mooney! 😀
