“I’m not going to limit myself for things I want to do just because it doesn’t conform to society. I’ve always been an entrepreneur in that sense and I felt like getting a tattoo was a very liberating thing to do.”
Prior to working for Red Bull Palmerton was partner for a number of successful bars and restaurants in San Francisco. The first restaurant he opened was a Mexican restaurant Mamasita, followed by their high-end sushi restaurant Umami.
“Of course all the restaurants are stocked with red bull,” Palmerton laughs. “I’ve always been a heavy, heavy drinker of red bull my entire life, I feel that its very much an industry drink and a functional beverage.” We might just recommend that you take it easy on the Red Bull before your next ink session Todd.
