If you watched TV back in the early 90’s you might remember a show called Parker Lewis Can’t Lose, starring a very young Corin Nemec…Well, I watched it religiously every week, and I would never have thought in a million years that I would end up meeting him, let alone becoming his friend.
I met Corin in Wales, last November at the Wales Comic Con in Wrexham. I was there visiting another friend, Nicholas Brendon (best known for his role as Xander in the cult TV show Buffy). After a group of us headed out for dinner, Corin announced it was actually his birthday, which led to a lot of drinks and (somehow) a game of giant chess in the courtyard at 6 am! Needless to say we had a nice chat and started planning a tattoo session.
It wasn’t until the 18th of February that we were able to catch up again at a Sci-fi show in France and pick up again where we left off and get down to business! Predictably, Corin sat like a champ while I tattooed his lower side (no, NOT his butt cheek!). I respect his privacy and won’t post the resulting tattoo but I can assure you it didn’t look too bad. Maybe one day he will share it with the world, maybe not. Suffice to say, we will be doing more….
